RE:Framed: Let It Go!

It’s that time of the school year again…

In case if you don’t know where this fabulous image is from, it’s taken from the cinematic creation called Frozen, the latest hit from Disney Animation Studios.  Now, it’s been awhile since Disney made a truly good musical; you know, the one that wrenches your heart and questions your thoughts about humanity.

I’m not going to give any spoilers, but Frozen is so wonderful that I’ve watched it 3 times, and I’ve cried each time.  It’s an amazing story about sisterly love, subjecting yourself to true love, which is putting someone else’s needs in front of yours, and of course, Princesses and Princes, like any classic Disney film.

RE:Framed: Photography and the power of the Rule of Thirds

The Power of Three.  Not one, but Three.  I’ve been obsessing over this concept recently ever since I came across it in The Count of Monte Cristo.  This book, which essentially is Pretty Little Liars meets Revenge meets Gossip Girl is, although long, full of twists and turns and metaphors, and in short, it’s just great.  Now, not to give away any spoilers, the main character of The Count of Monte Cristo  splits himself into 3 main characters in which he uses to enact his revenge on his enemies.  Other instances in the novel occur in threes as well – which led me to question the significance of this crazy number.

Well, besides the fact that I love baking… Continue reading RE:Framed: The Angry Baker

RE:Framed: Countless Baking Fails

For the first time this school year, I’m genuinely enjoying the book I’m reading in my English class:  The Count of Monte Cristo.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Alexander Dumas’ genius, it’s a book about pure revenge.  The count, or Dantes, as he is referred to, has been betrayed by his enemies and is throne into the horrible prison of Chateau d’lf for life.  Basically, that’s the gist of where I am in the novel right now, I don’t want to give away too much.  The book right now is full of exciting twists and turns and new characters.  It’s like Pretty Little Liars, except… in English form?
