checking back in on my 30 before 30 challenge i made for myself, i checked off something on that list as well last week. i finished re-reading the great gatsby. i wanted to reread the book before the new movie comes out with leonardo dicaprio.

i totally forgot how depressing this book is. i am still pumped for the movie, but pumped in a different way (meaning i'll have to be in the mood to be down in the dumps after seeing the movie. the ending is a killer - literally and figuratively). AJD made the comment that carey mulligan is only in depressing movies, and once again that statement fits with this movie. but leonardo dicaprio is in it as the babe so i obviously have to see it. ever since leo was in romeo and juliet back in the day with claire danes, i just can't quit him.
