I saw the most incredible movie last night that touched my inner pretentious nerd. It filled me with memories from my year abroad; mingling with British brainiacs over classic literature and walking the streets of Paris all lit up for Christmas. It reminded me that I am most happy in a 1920s-inspired speakeasy, listening to a piano player sing the lyrics of Cole Porter while sipping a French 75.
