What I like about the third movie is you get to see a side of Carlisle you haven't seen before. You actually get to see what his vampire capabilities are because there's some great battle sequences. It's my favorite book. Carlisle is holding on to that humanity. He doesn't want to be a vampire.
I've definitely had ideas and plans that sometimes exceed my means and capabilities.
People remember my last name because it's different, and people remember me in meetings because I dress differently from other people just because I'm a woman.
