RUN FORREST RUN!!

pHJieQ1

My favorite movie is Forrest Gump. The main character, Forrest’s attitude to life is so simple, it reminds me to stop over-thinking and just live. I choose the sunset in reference to Lion King because Hakuna Matata is essentially saying “life is like a box of chocolates”.I used a free photoshop online and searched through hundreds of Forrest Gump scenes and landed on the scene of him running, because that’s the one scene I find most impossible about that movie (plus I always cringe because I have exercised induced asthma). I was trying to think of something ironic or subtle, And ended up with Lion King. I originally had the idea of taking a scene from the Walking Dead and placing Marilyn Monroe in the fight scene, but I realized neither of these were movies so I ditched the idea… for now ;)

So the most interesting thing about me so far is that I spent a month last summer in Brussels, Belgium!! Between the protests, local bands, and rooftop outings, it stretched and challenged my character and adaptability
