2nd day of 2016

It’s the second day of 2016 and I’m sick. An exciting way to begin the new year, complete with chills of high fever and sore throat. Unending coughs since this morning.

Then there’s the internet.

Being stuck at home, prepares me to binge watch and re-watch movies that I set aside for better days. Or when I wish to see adorable and highly relatable awkward lines, scenarios, characters.

Me, and Earl, and the Dying Girl
Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist
Scott Pilgrim vs the World
Paper Heart

As well as heartwarming and bright stories of Amelie and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. ❀

Sometimes, it feels strange how funny lines can call out my tears. Not of happiness but more of sadness. Scary moments. Random thrills.

Need to get well soon.

Sherlock
The Big Bang Theory
Criminal Minds

Rainy Days, Films, and a Hot Cup of Coffee

Multiple raindrops can trigger a lasting sensation. There aren’t much to do on rainy days. How I wish I could go back to my younger years when I can dance in the rain without any worries to bother me. Now that I’m 22, I find other musings to keep me company. There are dozens of books waiting for me to finally pick them up. Different notebooks lay bare on my table (sometimes on the bookshelf, or possibly under my bed) because I hoped to write when I suddenly have some incredible ideas. Sad to say, those notebooks are gathering more dust than letters.

Adult worries come in different forms: work, responsibility, forgotten dreams. Aside from all of those concerns, the worst trouble I have now is getting distracted so easily. When I turn on my computer, online sites distract me. When I try to write some notes, other things on my table distract me. When I try to read a book, my thoughts distract me. There is an endless cycle of starting and getting distracted; going back but end up procrastinating. That’s why now, I wish to limit all of these distractions to one or two things (hopefully I have enough willpower to do so).

Tim Burton Movies

Most of my written works are a little dark and disturbing at times, but they make me feel and see differently. Aside from books, I also find comfort with movies. Most of the time these movies are done by Tim Burton. Then of course there are an extra inspiration withΒ Johnny Depp. πŸ˜‰

Tim Burton’s style is quirky but understandable. There are just some points which couldn’t be made better than a dark atmosphere and amazing cast. He knows his style and he improves it through time. I hope to be able to create something which more people would relate to.

I also try to remember some of the films that I enjoyed with my family which were directed by Tim Burton. Memories that are also sources of my inspiration in writing. There is really something fascinating with the dark yet colorful storylines.
