There and back again9:43 AM
I hope you had a blessed Christmas and that you haven’t broken all your New Year’s Resolutions yet. (I myself am only slightly delayed on my To Be Read list).

This is going to be a killer year, I can feel it. I’m working on exciting new features for The Culture Enthusiast and I’ll tell you more about it soon. To have more time to work on them I’ll be posting once a week now, every Wednesday.
Quality before quantity – that’s my motto. Unless we’re talking about cookies.
Now that business is out of the way, let’s catch up.
During my blog break I watched a bunch of movies and it felt… pointless. What was I supposed to do? Write comments about the movie and email them to people?
I did that. Most of my friends probably blocked my email.
But December seemed like the perfect time to go to the movies, didn’t it? It’s the holidays, just before the Oscars, time for some serious blockbusters.
I’m telling you, I must have stood 15 minutes staring at that huge wall of movie posters figuring out which would be less disappointing.
Had I known Lee Pace was in Lincoln and The Hobbit that decision would have been much faster.
Luckily I could rely on Dvds and since we last spoke I’ve seen Midnight in Paris, The Thin Man, It’s a Wonderful Life, and all Cary Grant movies I could find.
As for reading… well, in 2012 I didn’t read four books a month as I intended to. That’s why for 2013 my goal is 3 books. And an audio book.
I’ve recently finished Shakespeare’s Coriolanus and I am beginning Guy the Maupassant’s short stories.
But enough about me. What have you been up to? What are your cultural resolutions for 2013?
