My Sister’s Keeper

Posted on: July 10, 2009

Yesterday, Ryan and I went to go watch My Sister’s Keeper, which is a movie based on the book by Jodi Picult about a girl who has leukemia and her family.  The youngest child, Anna, was genetically engineered to be a perfect donor match for the child with leukemia, Kate.  After donating lympocytes and granulocytes and bone marrow and whatever else, Kate needs a kidney.  This is when Anna files a lawsuit against her parents for medical emancipation and says that she doesn’t want to donate her kidney to Kate (which is basically a life or death situation for Kate).  It is definitely a chick flick that will bring tears to your eyes, at least for me, because for some reason I have a really hard time keeping my eyes dry when watching/hearing someone else crying.  Anyway, I read the book a couple weeks ago, and even just reading the story brought tears to my eyes.  I have to say though, if you plan on seeing this movie, you might want to see the movie first, and THEN read the book.  There’s always differences when a book goes to screen and more often than not, the book is TEN times better than the movie.  I have to say, this is no execption.  This story brings up a lot of ethical and moral dilemmas to which there doesn’t really seem to be any one “right” answer.  If you are interested at all in this book/movie, check out: My Sister’s Keeper, the Movie website and My Sister’s Keeper, the Book website . The ending of the movie was drastically changed from the ending in the novel, which was a huge disappointment/surprise to me, but at the same time, it had some really great parts to it too.  =)

In other news, I’m trying to motivate myself to attempt to join the professional workforce (I need an income to fund my scrapbooking/crafts/amigurumi habits, I haven’t been able to do ANYTHING cuz I can’t afford to, which is depressing).  Let me tell yah, it’s hard.  I graduated in 2007 with a BS degree, but haven’t seen anything scientific since then.  Everyone says, it’ll come back to you, it’s just stored in the back of your mind, but I don’t really think it’ll happen that way.  I know that’s a negative attitude to have (although, more realistic, in my mind).  With that being said, wish me luck!  Any pointers/suggestions/comments about resume’s, interviews, jobs in general…. lemme know!  =)

Oh, this past Wednesday, I babysat for 5 hours.  I babysat for my Aunt and Uncle who have three little boys, ages 5, 4, and 2.  I have to say, keeping them entertained and happy was not the easiest.  I give props to those mommies and daddies out there, children are not easy, not that I ever thought they would be, but imagining being with and taking care of the kids 24/7/365 is beyond my realm of imagination.  I have to admit though, they are superly uber cute and not the terrors that some parents have to deal with.  =)

Alrite, that’s all for now.  Catchyah all on the flipside.  LOL.
