Spring Cleaning


Today, I'm dedicating myself to you, my readers. This blog has not been revamped for a whole year and I'm sure you'd all like something new to read, along with new things to look at.

White's Wonderland is expanding and with a new year, comes a new goal: to post something, at LEAST weekly, to keep you informed and interested. This is my new Spring Cleaning goal.

Without further ado, let me relay some movie news I've learned recently that you may or may not have heard about.

Alice in Wonderland 2 - Will be coming out on Memorial Day in 2016. Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp will be reprising their roles as Alice Kingsley and Tarrant Hightopp (The Mad Hatter), along with Helena Bohem Carter (as the Red Queen) and newly added will be Sasha Baron Cohen (known wildly as Borat, Bruno and Ali-G), however his character and the details for the plot are unknown at this time.

My two cents: I hope this last edition doesn't ruin it, along with the fact that Tim Burton will not be directing this sequel.

Muppets Most Wanted - I remember the Muppets as a kid, but sadly, while they were amusing, I was never really "into" them. Recently, I discovered that Tom Hiddleston has a minute role in the movie. I'm not going to lie, I would probably pay $20 to go see him act like a goof for five minutes. The ratings for the actual movie are pretty good, though.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - This movie looks very promising. I plan on attending this one, so once I do, I'll be sure to post my review on it. From the trailer, it seems darker than the first one and with such an mysterious antagonist, I anticipate a lot of action in this one. As a side note, Scarlett Johanson has requested from Marvel that a Black Widow movie be made. Her small parts in the movies so far have apparently boosted her popularity.

I'll keep you all updated as I find out more. For now, I'm off to clean this site.

Read on, peeps!

White Who?

To my dear readers-

Yeah, I know, I have no excuse to show up months later without having written anything. But, to be honest, I wasn't so sure anyone read anything I posted. But, the numbers don't lie, so, I'm back!

Six Impossible Things


I Believe In Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast

1. There is a drink that can make you shrink.

2. There is a cake that can make you grow.

3. Animals can talk.

4. There's a place called Wonderland.

5. The scriptwriter of the first is currently working on writing a sequel.

6. Johnny Depp is negotiating his return as Tarrent Hightopp, the Mad Hatter.

       That's right, readers! An Alice in Wonderland sequel. Unfortunately, Tim Burton will not be directing the followup to the 2010 epic. No word as of yet as to who, other than Johnny Depp, will be coming back to play thier original characters.

          Personally, I do believe going in to this after loving the first, that I will always love the first one best. Having said that, I will give the next one a chance, but how good can another movie be if all the director has done is the latest Muppet movie and The Ali G show? I'm sorry, but what is Disney thinking? All I can say is that if they're able to recruit most of the original cast, and the writer can steer clear of the corniness of Jim Henson's puppets, it might stand a chance. Otherwise, it's a mustache on the Mona Lisa.

Have You Seen This Monster?


Have you seen this monster?



He's one of the most notorious and oldest little buggers that exists today. 

His known aliases are: Jealousy and Envy.

Other known members of his posse are:

  •            Lust
  •            Gluttony
  •            Greed
  •            Sloth
  •            Wrath
  •            Pride



He seems to pop up unexpectedly, but when he does, it's never pretty. A lot of times, he shows up incognito. Here are some of the ways he disguises himself and how to deal.

Problem: Material Jealousy

A lot of the times, someone receives something, either they earned through hard work or were randomly gifted, that we wish we had but don't have them means to get.

Take this picture, for example. The little girl obviously loves the kitten she's squeezing, but the boy beside her isn't too pleased. He may not like cats, but as an animal lover whose been around both children and animals, I seriously doubt it, but it is possible. For the sake of argument, let's say he does. Unfortunately, he or someone in his family might be allergic. Or they may not live in a apartment or condo or rental house that allows cats. Or his family might not have enough money to adopt or buy one. In any case, it's easy for us to want something someone else has.

Solution: Try remembering the things you DO have. Chances are that you're blessed in ways that others aren't.

Problem: Financial Jealousy

Other times, we might know someone who might win the Lottery or come into a lot of money through inheritance. It probably seems very unfair when they post pictures of all of their new things online or places they got to go.

Seeing this constantly reminds us that what we want and what we wish we had.



Solution: Should you ditch your friends. Not at all. But, for instance, if you see all their posts and they make you angry or sad, modify what shows up on your homepage. If that's too hard and you're hellbent on avoiding them, delete your Facebook account or un-friend them. If that doesn't work, you can always try talking to them.

Problem: Emotional Jealous

When you find someone you really like, seeing them with someone else can be disheartening.

Solution:

If they are single, try talking to them and letting them know how you feel. Otherwise, you're missing out on a chance with them. How will he/she give you a chance if they don't know you're interested?

If they are with someone else and they are happy, let them be. Keep in mind that there is someone for everyone, somewhere. You might really like this guy/girl, but there's
someone better out there and you'll be so glad you waited for
him/her.

Things to Keep In Mind:

WANT vs. NEED - The sad fact is that we seldom need anything we want and almost never want what we need. We also often mistake what we need for what we want. Focus on fulfilling your needs first, then fit in something you want every so often.
  
God Bless,
