Dear Friends,


Yesterday was excellent. I woke up at 8 and flipped though the channels until found-to my surprise-Hairspray! I was so shocked; I couldn’t believe that I was sitting in front of my TV with the chance to watch the original version of Hairspray. The film was fantastic, for all of you guys that haven’t seen it. It deals with issues like racism, even though from the preview they are showing now, it doesn’t seem like it would. It’s beautifully written, and I can’t wait until I am able to get the chance to see the remake in theatres.

I’ve also gotten the chance to find time to watch NANA 2. If you have not seen it, it is magnificent. I found myself crying through a lot of it-although I am a cry-baby, and a large majority of the time it isn’t a deep heartfelt crying, but a shallow and panicky type. Anyways it was fantastic. Not as good as the first, but I am hoping and praying that there will be a third one. If not I will be quite depressed.
This film wasn’t like the rest of the films that I have been watching. I mean all of the other films I watch are good, but at the end of this one, I was moved. Have you ever watched a film and when it is over you can take a deep breath and once you have done that, you feel like you can take on the world, like there is no limits to what you can accomplish. Have any of you guys thought something along the lines of that after you have seen a truly fantastic film? Or am I just insane.
I’m determined to find the music for this film. Even though there were only like 4 songs, they are all wonderful, if I am able to fin them, I will be adding them to the MP3 player at the top of my page.
As I was saying before about the whole “taking a deep breath and feeling like you can do anything” thing, there was this one scene in the film that I felt really pushed that forth. Nana and Hachi are standing in front of the window in their apartment, and through the window the sky is filled with exploding fireworks of all different colors, and they are hugging, but in that moment, in that scene .. I don’t know how to explain it. I thought that it was beautiful though. I guess why I though it was so beautiful because of the rest of the film, but I don’t want to give any of it away.
If you want to watch NANA 2 [click here] I don’t know what I would Do without Crunchyroll.com

I also watched the Japanese Live Action of Hana Kimi. It is fantastic. I’m not sure if I like it more that the Taiwanese version, but still it is amazing in its own way. For anyone that is a Hana Kimifan, I recommend that you go and see it.

I just arrived back from seeing the new Harry Potter film. I really did like it. For me, it was a little more serious that the other 4 before it, but that is what I liked about it. I believe that I pissed off a large majority of the people in the theatre. My friend Rachel was constantly making comments and well, I couldn’t help but laugh. There was this one;
“Everyone else in the movie has a British accent, but he doesn’t he’s all like ‘Oh no! They be after me Lucky Charms’”
I honestly couldn’t help but laugh. Then there was the;
“OMG, when he said that I swear he was going to add an I Love You to the end” Rachel.
”Really? I though that he would have added a little pelvic thrust.” Me.
Again, the two of us should never be allowed in public.
IT was a great film though, I really did enjoy it, although it wasn’t one of the “deep Breath” ones, it was still fantastic.
One thing that I love, is how My city turned one of it's streets downtown in to Diagon Alley. I wish that I could have gone so much, I bet it would have been awesome.

I suppose I should shut up and let you guys get on with the visiting. Have a good one.

Dear Friends,


Today has been quite and odd day. I watched Goodbye Lenin. It is a fantastic movie. I recommend it to anyone ... unless you can't handle like .5 seconds of nudity. In that case, don't watch it.

I have posted the music, so listen and tell me what you think of it.

Apples. I've had the most random conversation about them today. It was a custody battle over them. If you want to read them [click here]
This convo is one of the many reasons that My friend Rachel and I shouldn't be allowed in public.

Other than that I have done nothing. I'm tired.
Good night/day seeing as it is almost midnight here.

Dear Friends,


I’m sitting here, in front of my computer, and it just doesn’t feel right. I know that I’m home, and yet it still feels like I’m not. If that makes any sense.

I watched the most amazing films last night. My entire day was consumed by my thoughts on these films. I watched: Gerry, Elephant, Last Days and I am about to watch Goodbye Lenin. All of these films have been added to my list of favourites. Then again almost every film that I see is added, because at the time that I see it, I tend to think that it is the most amazing film to date, but then sure enough another one comes out, and I think the same about that one. I think I am going to put a summary for the first three films next, so if you don’t want to read about them, scroll to the bottom =D

Gerry: Matt Damon and Casey Affleck are driving buddies, who are going on a hike to see a “thing”, but after conversation they finally decide that neither of them are interested in this “thing” so they then decide to turn back. It soon becomes apparent that they are lost in the desert. After several days of wandering in silence they both pass out from fatigue and dehydration. In the end, only one survives closing the movie with an awkward car ride filled with silence. Even though there is minimal dialogue in this film, it is still worth something. Gerry is based on an actual event which can be read about in Journal of the Dead. Gerry is the first movie in Gus Van Sant's Death Trilogy

Elephant: The movie tells the story of a school shooting waiting to happen, though the eyes of several people. It shows how everyone with the school was connected whether they knew it or not. John Robinson’s character is aware of what is going to happen when he sees two students entering the school with guns and large duffle bags strapped around them. He instinctively warns people to not go into the school, and yet no one pays attention. When the first shot is heard the student body goes into a panic. The two students branch off into different sections of the school shooting everyone who happens to come their way. The movie ends with only one of the two students alive debating to kill to kids he found hiding in the freezer. There is no resolution. Elephant is loosely based on the Columbine High School massacre and is the second movie in Gus Van Sant's Death Trilogy

Last Days:The movie fallows the life of Blake a alienated rock star. If you like Kurt Cobain, I suggest you see this movie after all it is loosely based on his last days alive. Blake dies from a guns shot. The ending of this movie hints at the possibility that Blake could have killed himself, but there is a scene that leaves you to wonder. Last Days is the last film in Gus Van Sant’s Death Trilogy
Other than watching those movies, I really have done mothing but listen to music. I have become especially obsessed with this one song from Last Days it’s called, Death to Birth I happen to think that it is magnificent. There is also another song from Goodbye Lenin that I am quite fond of. It is a piano solo called Summer 78 I believe. I am going to try and put those sites on a MP3 player so that I can put them on my site. They should be up fairly soon. I promise.

I guess I should be going. I already wrote that huge post yesterday. Have a good one.

Dear Friends,


My mother is beginning to annoy me. I discovered today that she has been going through my things, because she doesn’t trust me, I don’t think that my mother will ever trust me. I guess guys must be wondering what this is about, so I will tell you. Long story short, I have a boyfriend, and my mother believes that I shouldn’t have one, and well, I have been somewhat lying to her about it. I don’t want to hurt her. Honest. That is the last thing that I want to do, but as much as I do love my mother, I really do like the guy that I am “secretly” dating. I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to hurt anyone and yet, with the position that I am in, it seems like I have to hurt someone in order to make another happy. It’s not fair.
It happens to be even worse now, because I really want to see him, seeing as I haven’t for about 2 months, and well a friend of ours was going to have a little deal with us, so that we could all get a chance to see each other, and my mother won’t, because as she put it, “I would feel more comfortable know thing that ‘that boy’ won’t be there”. I really do hope that things will work out.

Over my summer vacation, I have been watching one of the most amazing films. It is called, Snow Cake. Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver and Carrie-anne Moss are in it, I happen to find this amazing, especially seeing as I wasn’t able to picture Alan Rickman playing anyone else other than Snap in the Harry Potter series. He is a wonderful actor though, and this film has proved it.
There is this line that is written on a picture in the film that I find to be dazlious. It goes along the lines of; “The past is only a memory, the future a fantasy. It is in only the present that we truly live.”
I also happen to love how the film is set in Canada.

Since I left for my Fathers house, I have been wondering a lot about being “home-sick”. I truly don’t understand that concept; I mean I don’t think that it is accurately named. How can a person miss their home, and not the people in it? I think that “home-sick” should be changed in to something else that suits it better. What do you think?

I have been looking for a song, and I can’t seem to find it. It is called Notteru Ondo and it is apparently preformed by The Drifters but I can’t seem to find it no matter how hard I look. I guess I’ll have to look harder then.

I’m being yelled at to get off of the computer. So I might as well get off, because I also need to rearrange everything in my room. My mother has moved everything out of its place.

I hope and wish that all of you are having a wonderful summer.

Dear Friends,


shit. Things are ... ... just, insane.
I have a friend who-litterally, just moments ago, I found out that her sister has been diagnosed with cancer. I don't know what to tell her. I don't know how to react.
And, while all of this is running through my mind, it's resurrecting thoughts of my Grandfather who died of Cancer 2 years ago. TODAY OF ALL DAYS.
I wish that I could help her out, I could say, "I know what she is going through" but the truth is, i don't. When my grandfather was diagnosed with cancer, I didn't know anything. I didn't believe it till the day that he passed. And because of that, i have no clue how to help her.

bleeeargh. I'll think of something. I have to.

In other new, i'm boring. That was the highlight of my day.
have a good one.

Iz bettah!

Dear Friends,


So, I'm doing better today. See what I meant by " give me some time and I'll be fine". I'm used to this I can expect that it's only a 24 - hour thing. Although, when it happens, it's like my panic attacks. It feels like it'll never end. That is the part that gets me freaked out. xD
Thank you for all of the caring comments. Hugs For You All *huggles*

If I can find a layout that I like, I will be changing my site. If not I may try to make one. although It'll end up being crap, seeing as all I have is MS Paint, but I have seen it be done, and I am willing to try ;D

Other than that, I'm a boring person, so i shall end this post. xDDD

Have a good one you guys!

You Honestly Dont Need To Read.

Dear Friends,


I’m trying to figure things out. I’m an emotional wreck at the moment. Feel free to laugh. I don’t know what has gotten into me lately.

I miss him, a lot more that I really should. I know I’m being stupid, and I’m being selfish and childish, but I can’t help it. I should listen to friends and never get mixed up in this stuff, because although there are the good times, there is so much that I wish just wouldn’t be there. So much hurt that comes from absolutely nothing. Maybe I just need some meds or something, maybe this is a chemical imbalance, I mean really no one can belike this at the rate I am. Maybe I just need a good nights sleep and then in the morning I’ll feel better.

If you have known me for a while, you know that I get like this quite often. I really think that I have a problem. No, I are not suicidal. You guys don’t have to worry about that. I’m just a clingy person by nature and I miss not having him here beside me. But, alas, I will get over it. Give me some time =D

Sorry about wasting your time. You shouldn’t have read this.
*loves*

I'm praying for some divine intervention.

Dear Friends,


I've studied as much as I can. I've re-taught myself every thing that I've learned this year, all with in a 2 hours period.
even after all this. I know I'm going to fail.

I can now say; I hate Science with a passion.

Wish me luck xD
