Movie Mixed w/ Emotions

After so long, I've finally watched the movie Gladator. My parents have told me before to watch it and though we had it on DVD, I never got to watching it. I don't know if it's just because I didn't want to or I just kept forgetting about it. Well, after many years of passing it up, I've FINALLY watched it. It was quite a good movie and made me feel hate, hurt, pain, sadness, disgust, etc. So many things had happened to Maximus. The ending really hit me hard.
At the time I was watching the movie, I was already feeling a bit down from previous events or thoughts in the evening so the movie amplified my feelings and made me feel even worse. If a movie could do that, would you think of it as a good movie? I think so, but that's just my opinion.

I do however advise those who are of the right age to watch this and haven't, to go out and rent, buy, or somehow watch it. They do air the movie on TV every now and then. I watched the beginning on TV several days ago then finally broke out the DVD of it we have and watched it at 2am.

By the way, after watching the movie, I listened to the soundtrack off of youtube and found I can't exactly explain it in words.
Here's the ending song of the movie for your listening enjoyment.


Also, dealing with the emotions part and why I was feeling down while watching the movie. Have you ever had a friend of yours, feel like they're slipping away. Like you're jealous of someone stealing them away but you urge them on to go after that person? It's hard to say but something like that.
Well, lately that's how I've been feeling. It's getting to me but thankfully I have great friends who are there for me and cheer me up. Thank you to them. Sometimes I wonder what I'd do without them.

Dream 8/18/10

This is just copy and pasted directly from notepad where I originally wrote about the dream after I woke up. Sorry if I REALLY can't write. Haha. But here it is anyways.

Had two dreams. One was more a nightmare where I was laying in bed and each time I woke up or something I had bugs. Ants or spider like bugs to specific. I yelled at my parents or I just remember telling them the line "At least you don't have bugs in your bed". They went to check and saw all the bugs which they wrapped my sheets up and ran to the garage where they were going to clean them.

The second part of the dream or after I went back to bed since I woke up earlier this morning around 9am. But anyways, I was walking around a store that looked really familiar. Like I've walked around before in a previous dream. It was in a mall because before I was walking around and there was a celebrity in the mall. I don't know how I got in but I looked out the doors and there was like a mob outside all the doors. I was like, "It's going to get hectic in here soon."
While I was walking around there, I was trying to get through thee racks past a guy with a couple of his sons. The guy FINALLY let me pass but then said, "Son you need a girl like this". He then started following me and was talking about me. I can't really remember what he said but then it went to where the son had went off in the store, I went after him because at that point I think I was dating him. Next thing I know, I make one turn and I'm outside. I found him down a long road or street on a bike. I caught up to him laughing then stopped. I don't know if I talked him in to a race back or something. But I started running. He came after on bike until we got to a point where we were going up and down stairs. Like on a path but it had kid's stuff in it. I was ahead of him most the time until I started tiring out and he went ahead of me. We got to the final and last slide where he waved to our friends at the finish line. I grabbed on to him and hugged him going down the slide. He got up and went over the finish line which I struggled to get up and get over. I think he ended up helping me. He was a cute guy too. I know I heard one of my friends (Jackie I think) say, "That's not fair, they came down the slide together." Haha. It was a good dream I think. C:

Star Wars Marathon?

Can you guess without looking at the title what movie this picture is from?
If you've guessed Star Wars, then you are correct.

I just finished watching a Star Wars marathon the past couple days. I watched one through four a couple nights ago while I just finished watching the last two tonight. It was nice to watch them again considering I haven't seen any Star Wars movies in years, probably since I was in middle school and that was over four years ago.
I think a reason being why I wanted to watch the movies lately was because of all the talk about the new Star Wars: Old Republic game coming out next year that my friends just can't wait for. One of them showed me the trailer and even live game play shown and taped at the E3 Convention in California. Supposedly it's scheduled to come out next spring, or so my sources say. It DOES cost money to play, just like many other online MMORPG. I would tell you how much but I'm not exactly sure. You would have to look up the Old Republic website to find that out. I'm gravely sorry.

While I was watching the movies, I kept asking questions to one of my friends who is waiting for the game and is kind of a Star Wars Fanatic? You might be able to say? I've probably referred to him in my posts before as Kikun. I'm not obligated to say his real name because I'm not sure if he wants me to just like any of my other friends and family. Therefor I have alternative names for them. I'm grateful to him for answering my questions even if it did spoil some of the story, but at least I had already seen these movies long ago and still partially remember them. I own the first three (the newer ones) but the last three I sadly do not. I watched the 4th episode on youtube but on my big screen TV while my laptop was plugged in to it. The other two I was lucky enough to watch HD on the Spike channel. They aired the older movies in a row. I was going to take them and watch them later but since I had nothing really to do all day, I watched them each in a row, commercials and all sadly.

There was one thing I noticed in the older movies that I have a question about and unfortunately my friend, Kikun, has not been on all day. So therefor I can not ask him, which is why I'm asking here.

In Episode 7, while Luke, Leia, and the others were celebrating becoming part of the Ewok tribe, Luke headed outside on one of the bridges thinking to himself when Leia headed out soon after. She kept asking him what was wrong and a question came up directed towards Leia from Luke. "Do you remember your mother?" She told him she didn't really because she "died when I was young" but she still had some vague memories of her.
Now in the newer movies Episodes 1-3, Padame Amidala had died right after the children were born. So, in the older episodes Padame, Luke and Leia's mother died some time after they were born? And in the newer episodes 1-3, Padame died after giving birth? Hmmmmm..... Poses questions in my mind even more, but at the same time, not really. I think there WERE other questions I had after watching the older movies, but I can't remember any at the time. Maybe they shall come to me later.

Now that my marathon of Star Wars is over, my next MIGHT just be the Lord of the Rings. I haven't seen those in a good couple years and I might just be due for it.
I'm not sure if I might watch it here soon or maybe next year since there's been talk between my friends Michan and Kikun of having a movie marathon somewhere before or after Megacon. We'll just have to wait and see....

I'm not sure anymore...

I'm actually not really sure what to really say on the blog anymore? I have ideas but I'm honestly not sure if they are worthy of the blog. I know this is my blog and I can say what I want to, but still, is it worth it? SHOULD I just put what I want and not care what anyone else has to say?

I just don't know....

Where Did I Go?

[Picture taken by me of my friend David Waugh, a photographer from Bellingham, WA]

What have I been up to recently? The reason I haven't posted in so long? Well, there are many factors to that. School, sickness, out of the house, and possibly vacation. When was my last post? Other than my laptop post of course. It was....earlier last month. I haven't posted anything in roughly a month and even before then it was a while ago. I'm sorry for not posting continually. Life's just a bitch lately. (Since it's my blog I am allow to curse thank ya very much. ;D )

Anyways, the past several months have been hectic since the end of May I graduated and about four days after the graduation ceremony I immediately left for San Francisco, California. I spent a month and a half total in California with my grandmother mostly but also other family. It was an amazing experience since I'm used to spending only a couple days with certain family members over there. I was able to slowly take my first step out of my small bubble that surrounds me. I take life too seriously in which I don't try things very much. I'm hoping at some point sooner than later that shall all change. I will have emerged from the bubble of solitude and become a different person (one that isn't insane, irritating, and a jerk hopefully). Back to California. I was there for a good month and a half and had many experiences. I literally took pictures every day so by the time I arrived back in Florida I had almost 3,000 pictures. It was quite a sight. I would like to post some here on the blog, eventually. I'd have to grab my external hard drive I stored them all on of course. You didn't think I'd keep them all on the computer right? Psshhh, no, my camera card would be absolutely full if that happened.
I originally hoped I had a laptop before heading out there so I had something to store pictures on since I KNEW I would be taking a massive load but my father was putting off ordering my laptop until last week. It's actually my graduation present ad I love it. I've been using it all day since it arrived at about 9AM.

Anyways, since I seem to be getting distracted from my main point, in a future blog post I shall post pictures and stories behind the pictures, that way you can (somewhat) relive my experiences I had taking them.

New Laptop

I'm back! For those of you who care of course. What you see above is a new laptop I just recently received. My parents bought it for me as my graduation presents. It's beautiful and I love it.

Maybe now I'll start to post on here more often. But I can't guarantee anything.

Other news, I have an art update.
I created a blog with my friend. It's now become where I post my art if any of you'd like to know that is.


That's all for now. Hopefully I'll post more often. If not, there's a chance I may just close down the blog, even though I don't really want to.
