I’m going to make this a quick post, since I’m at work and writing this in an email to conceal that I’m doing PXC stuff! HA!
I just finished reading Scrappy Little Nobody by the being that is Anna Kendrick. I freaking love her. Throughout this book I was comforted by her honesty and soul-sister connection that I felt towards her. I’m pining for her friendship, so I will cut out her face from a magazine and glue it to my vision board.
She revealed her day to day struggles with anxiety, but not in a dramatic sort of way, a very self-deprecating and “we all have these crazy-ass thoughts, right?” sort of way. Thank you Anna. I too feel the urge to remain a man-child (in the chapter, The World’s Most Reluctant Adult), have been called precocious as a child, and also feel that making proclamations like, “This will be my year!” is the right intention, but always lack the follow-through, as well.
The details of behind the scene Hollywood events was kinda disappointing. It’s not all glamour and it is more fun to watch on TV. I’ll cross that bridge when I get there but for now I’ll keep the image of the Oscars as dreamy and glamorous as I think they are, until I’m proven otherwise. I’m sure I will be proved otherwise when I have blisters on my feet from my Jimmy Choo shoes and can’t use the bathroom by myself in my hiked up Marchesa gown.
There was a lot I didn’t know about her. For instance she started her career on Broadway as an adolescent. That’s so ballsy. She shared some funny stories, like the time she and her brother (a few years older than her) stayed in NYC all alone just so she could get a second audition.
She shared her dating experiences, the characteristics that make her the somewhat rigid and uptight, ever-authority pleasing- but-not “Nice” person, she’s evolved into. I swear to you, Anna could totally join my group of friends it it wouldn’t be weird at all.
And both of our first cars were named CHARLIE! We both really enjoyed the classic film, The Women, and would much rather be lazy and eat a bag of chips instead of working out! I mean come on A.K. Just be my BFF already!
So, I clearly loved reading this book. This was unofficially our Book Club’s March book. You have a few days, it’s a quick read, you can get it done before April.
April’s Officially the start PXC Book Club and our book of the month is: Unfiltered, by Lily Collins.
Did you read A.K.’s book or even better, listen to hear audio book (which she recorded) damn I’ll have to check it out at the library!) ? Did you love is as much as I did? Share in the comments below and if you have any book/audio book suggestions let us know that too!
Come on folks, I know you’re reading this—just give us a like, or a smiley face :) or a comment. I really want to hear from you! YES YOU!!
Ok, back to my pineapple yogurt, oh yeah, and my “real” work.
