Thank you for introducing me to Caro Emerald
Thank you for telling me to stop and look around
Thank you for reading The Catcher in The Rye
Thank you for listening to Frank Sinatra
The long rides around town,
For the fried shrimp balls
For not forcing me to watch horror movies
For standing on edges of rooftops
For stopping me from putting a foot out to test gravity
For recording me holding my breath for 2:15mins
The accents we tried
The prank calls
The rain dancing
The day we jumped into the water fully clothed
The day we forced an outing and scratched the car
The day you made me try to drive on my favorite road
For accepting that stupid fax
When no ones know how to actually fax
The soundtrack we made
That we never listened to
Thanks for being on my speed dial
I’ve been gone for over a year, an excuse for that? Sheer laziness plus i’m not one to stick to habit. I also can’t promise to do this on a weekly basis, but i got back to journaling early this year so maybe some of that will be on here. Why am i back? I guess my outlook on life changed so fast so dramatically that i guess i feared i might have a personality disorder, why am i sharing this? i still don’t know.
But back to the basics, that sounded like a line from a 90’s tv show introduction.
What could have been, it’s a something we all crave, it’s that moment where we escape reality and just think of what we would like to happen, what we all imagine and daydream about before waking up back to reality.
As humans, we tend to getaway from life for at least a few minutes a day, but why is that, is reality so bad? Or are we just not satisfied with our lives and how we live. I mean dictionaries define daydreaming as; “a series of pleasant thoughts that distract one’s attention from the present.” But why is that, why do need to distract ourselves, is life that dull?
I myself believe it’s an escape, and I accept that, because in a sense, I sometimes find my dream farfetched and unlikely. So using the powerful tool that god has given me, my mind, I have chosen to live for a few minutes within a universe that makes me smile brightly and forget about life’s regular snags.
Artistic and original ideas that could be the change we need in our lives, if take these risks, we might see life in a new light, like a new lenses.
If it’s the person we have crush on, or that new hobby we want to try, or just maybe something as simple an item on our shopping bag, why do we always postpone what we want when we know it could make us happier even if its only for a moment.
As I sit here, One month prior to my high school graduation, I find myself thinking that I might have jumped the gun with choosing to major in Film.
The closer I get, the scarier it is, about 80% of people I know are telling me to choose a major that could provide me with a well paying job. Now that is a good option if I can accept living my whole life sitting in a desk job, contemplating on what could have been.
I’m not a realist, far from it actually, I live in the idea of me doing what I love and being successful, but why is that such a bad thing, I mean shouldn’t we do something we love instead of what others think, what about all the high school/college dropouts who made a living out of a hobby, why do we always look down on people who create an option instead of taking the easy way out.
I’m writing this because writing releases my tension, because today, three months after choosing to major in something I like, I’m being told to choose the safe option. If you think about it, aren’t the ones who stray find success?
What’s making this so much harder is the fact that I’m born in between old and new, the generation that will change all, the ones who are helping break the cultural barriers that sometimes hold us back.
It’s a scary choice, to choose between your cultural beliefs or new ideals, should I follow or should I stray to find my way?
What would you do?
The term Troglodyte is used to define “Caveperson”, I’m not that big of a fan of hard scientific words but they are interesting and cool to use. A caveperson is someone whose manners are not civilized and whom acts in a violent way which I assure you is NOT me.
Of course, technology didn’t literally turn me into a caveperson but it did affect me but by being surrounded by electronics in my room, I didn’t have the need to leave it since I had everything there. By staying in the bedroom for countless hours and not seeing my family as much as I used to, they started saying “Ohh did you finally leave your cave” over and over again every time I actually left my room.
It took me a while before I realized that I actually was a cave person. Cave people only left they’re caves “shelters” when they had the need to. Like a caveperson, I planned on leaving only when I got hungry or needed something.

I decided to go watch the movie after a lot of people started praising it; honestly I was quite shocked that the franchise was rebooted and Tobey Maguire quit, but then again there are very few people who like wearing a unitard.
- Andrew Garfield as Spiderman:
I’ve always been a Tobey Maguire as Spidey fan, maybe because of his innocent eyes or because I grew up with the idea of it. Now I should probably start gushing about Andrew Garfield, a couple of weeks before the movie hit theatres I started googling his pictures and the only I can say is that this guy is one HOT SPIDERMAN!
- A Funny Movie:
Something that Sam Raimi, the previous director sucked at. When purchasing the ticket, honestly I didn’t consider that I’d laugh unless someone slipped with his or her food or something. Anyways, back to talking about the movie, I totally loved the fight scene in the Library with the classical music and the scene where Spidey makes fun of the robber.
3. Emma Stone Shines:
I’m not that big of a fan but i truly believed she rocked as Gwen Stacy, and the chemistry was undeniable. I hated her father’s death scene because you know, i’m a nice person.
4. His Parents’ Disappearances playing a big part:
Now I’m not trying to dramatize it but backen when Sam Raimi directed the movies they hardly mentioned his parents but here, right from the beginning questioning, “WHERE ARE THEY?” which is a very smart thing to do.
5. That He Actually Created His Webs:
I mean i’m a huge fan of fantasies and stuff but i mean creating his webs made more sense than just having superpowers, at least no kids will go try to get bitten by spiders.
Overall the movie was AMAZING, and a very exiting franchise to look forward to. I thought that this rebooted franchise would go south but apparently, not any time soon!
