Tetris Tetris Tetris. How I love thy little shapes; How I adore the way they fit so perfectly together; Yet how I despise thee; How I writhe with anger when the blocks go a foul and tiny squares are left behind, empty holes that represent the emptiness of my soul when I lose.
Hello! Back from hiatus.
Anyway, thought of the day: if you can’t change someone directly, be inventive and find a way to inspire that change indirectly. Put ideas, theories, and supporting evidence forward, and let them take whatever information they want. You can’t truly change a person unless they themselves want to change. At this point, I’m fine with just being the instigator of progressive thoughts.
P.S. - Still don’t really know how to work the MacBook.
People’s relationship to life is an ever changing one. There are times when people can only see what the next two weeks will bring, and we complain as if victimizing ourselves is justified. Then something bad happens (or something good, but usually it’s something bad) and this short term lense we’ve been looking at life through suddenly shatters, and all we’re left with is the big picture around us. While this is good in the long run for some, I don’t want to be that person that gets caught off guard. I want to already be aware of the big picture instead of being forced to see it suddenly, then trying to make sense of it. I admit, I often get caught up in looking through that short term lense, and have done it all weekend. Then I saw the Academy Awards, which acknowledged the work of John Hughes, who recently passed. He worked on great movies including The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Home Alone. His movies (at least the first two) dealt with the pains and struggles of growing up, and of course Home Alone is just a classic comedy that reminds me of being young (it was my favorite movie when I was little). It really reminded me that my youth will not be here forever, and every day I pass looking through my short term lense at home is every day I have missed an opportunity to appreciate my life. So even though these next two weeks will feel stressful, I have to remember the bigger picture that surrounds my tunnel vision, and know that the world will not end no matter if I do well or not.
So Alice in Wonderland was quite interesting. Nothing I wouldn’t expect from Tim Burton. It was quite an aesthetically impressive film, paying close attention to every detail that ultimately created a fantasy land I’ve never seen before.
The characters were not unusually crazy, and it was quite funny. I loved the bloody big head queen, as well as the white queen. But my favorite character would have to be the Mad Hatter. Surprisingly, he was constructed to be quite a complex character, balancing his madness with more stable characteristics of logic and faith. Go Johnny Depp.
Very excited for my first pre-screening of a movie… ever! So this is what it’s like to be special…
/21/ I’m so tired.
/20/ It’s the most wonderful time of the day.
I love night time. It’s the most peaceful, reflective, still yet alive, relaxing and happy time for me. I don’t know what it is, but I love the night.

Just for your information, entry /18/ was for you. I know you asked about it before, but for some reason I didn’t want to tell you. But yes, it was for you.
Thanks for another perfect weekend.
/18/ Here’s to the pilot that weathered the storm. —
You know those days when you feel so annoyed that the very feeling of electricity and negative energy is flowing through and penetrating every single part of your body? Yeah, I’m having one of those moments right now. I don’t know what/where the exact source of emotions originates from, but whatever/wherever it is, it’s doing overtime right now.
