Andrea Bocelli- Con Te Partiro

Con Te Partiro

This song never fails to give me the chills. It is so beautifully sung. It makes a great wedding song =).


"When I'm alone I dream on the horizon and words fail; yes, 
I know there is no light in a room where the sun is absent, if you are not with me. 
At the windows show everyone my heart which you set alight; enclose within me the light you encountered on the street.
I'll go with you, to countries I never saw and shared with you now, yes, I shall experience them. 
I'll go with you on ships across seas which, I know no, no ,exist no longer; with you I shall experience them.
When you are far away I dream on the horizon and words fail, and, yes, I know that you are with me; you, my moon, are here with me, my sun, you are here with me.
I'll go with you to countries I never saw and shared with you, now, yes, I shall experience them.  
I'll go with you on ships across seas which, I know, no, no, exist no longer; with you I shall experience them again. 
I'll go with you on ships across the seas which, I know, no, no, exist no longer; with you I shall experience them again. I'll go with you, I with you."

Movie recommendation: The Five-Year Engagement

 The Five-Year Engagement

I highly recommend watching this film! The entire movie was HILARIOUS! Sure, the jokes were crude and blunt, but it works. Jason Segel did a fine job with the character of Tom. Emily Blunt was also a fine Violet. The two characters together lacked chemistry to me. They played their part well, but as a couple, they weren't very convincing. Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan made a better couple in the tv sitcom How I Met Your Mother. My friend and I went to see a preshowing of this movie. It comes out on April 27th 2012.

My friend and I were both apprehensive coming into this movie. We both trusted that Jason Segel would do a bang up job and that held true. The movie took place in San Francisco! As a native, it was very fun to see familiar places in the movie. As the movie progressed, my major peeve was the couple sitting next to me making side comments during the entire show! Another movie watcher had to shush them!

Trust, this movie is worth seeing. Come happy, leave happy.
