Exactly one year ago, at 11 p.m., I sat down in front of my TV screen and watched Casablanca for the very first time. It was my first movie pre-1960, it was my first black and white movie, and it was the beginning of a wonderful journey I inadvertently embarked in. And to be quite honest, I still don't know what hit me.
It was a wonderful year. All things considered, it was the best of my life. I made so many new friends, I discovered so much about myself, I had the inspiration I needed to do more and I changed my routine to the point that it's unrecognizable.
I think anything that starts being this big a part of your life inevitably teaches you lots of things. The effect is even greater if you think about what you saw and apply it to your own life, which is something I've always made a point of doing. I've learned priceless lessons from these films, these stars and these stories and I decided to celebrate this wonderful occasion by writing a list.
