I usually have trouble sleeping at night; but last night, I didn’t fall asleep until a little after 5am. I woke up when my mom came home from work, somewhere around 1pm. As usual, the “you’re not doing anything with your life” conversation came up, but I didn’t bother. I was more concerned with the fact that I’m out of Honey Nut Cheerios. After searching the pantry a couple times, finally around 4pm I had some waffles. They weren’t chocolate-chip waffles, but at least I had a somewhat-reasonable substitute for Honey Nut Cheerios.
The rest of the day consisted of Sudoku puzzles, a new novel, and boredom on the internet. I’m currently reading Apologize, Apologize! by Elizabeth Kelly. It’s one of those funny unbelievable-family books. I love those.
I feel like I’m getting spammed by movies. They’re coming out left and right: It’s Kind of a Funny Story (I read the book back in 2008, it was very entertaining) Jackass 3 (I love the Jackass series) Morning Glory Wild Target (I’m following Rupert Grint‘s expansion in acting; he’s good) Megamind A Christmas Carol (Though I’ve heard the story many times, it never gets old; same with Jim Carrey) Salt How Do You Know Tangled 127 Hours (I’m getting into James Franco) I Love You Phillip Morris (Two of my favorite actors, Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor) Life As We Know It (Just came across this last night) Going The Distance The King’s Speech (I want to see this movie for several reasons including the actors, and because it’s a movie about stuttering) Just Go With It Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son (Might as well finish the series) Rabbit Hole Take Me Home Tonight (I watch films similar to this all the time; they never get old) Paul Opens March 18, 2011 Super Opens on April Fool’s Day Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Opens May 20, 2011 The Hangover Part 2 Opens May 26, 2011 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Opens July 15, 2011
I have a lot of movies to see. I am, after all, a cinephile 🙂 Though I get frustrated with Netflix sometimes, I’m glad I have them.
Today wasn’t a complete waste of time. I woke up at noon as usual (I should stop saying this, it happens regularly so we’ll just assume I wake up at noon everyday), had my bowl of Honey-Nut Cheerios in peace (surprisingly). Then I got back in bed and finished my book. The last few chapters were very emotional, and I didn’t expect that, but overall it was a good book (sequel actually): “Children of God Go Bowling” by Shannon Olson. Her life oddly resembles mine in a way. I wrote a little after I finished the book. I didn’t start on the next book immediately like I used to. I guess since it was so emotional, I just wanted it to sink in, and think about it a little bit more. But my next book is: “Lottery” – by Patricia Wood. The rest of the day was devoted to Tumblr. I stated my opinion on a post about ageism (I seem to be stating my opinion a lot lately). Basically my point is Ages 13-19 are considered teenage years. Why single anyone out when they’re in the same category? Everyone hates 13yr-olds supposedly because they’re immature. There are several immature people in the world. It doesn’t have to be a specific age. You can be 40-something and still be immature. It just depends. I’m seventeen; I’ll be eighteen at the end of May this year. I was pretty much immature up till February 2010. My dad’s death had a great impact on me; still does. I’ve changed into a completely different person. Mostly someone silenced. You can say you’re 17. But proclaiming your age doesn’t tell your maturity level. You can assume, but you can never be sure. We’re all young. The world is fucked up enough as it is; why do more damage? Why not just come together? Different countries are struggling with different-yet-similar issues; whether it be leadership, or financial issues, or anything else, one thing is certain: the world is struggling. They’re aren’t that many people that see this.
Maybe I’m naive, but this is just how I see the world. Among other things.
