Precious, Crazy Heart, The Other End Of The Line.

For the longest time I have been binging on DVDs (fake ones) and I really want to watch a lot of latest movies, but for now I have seen these 3. Here are my insights.

Precious- this was one heck of a movie. Award-winning indeed and lots of great singers (actors rather) here. Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz are here plus Paula Patton (I love her) and of course the lead roles, Gabourey Sidibe and Mo'nique proved a lot. I love the story and even though were lots of cuss words, I still got the message.

Crazy Heart- when I saw the trailer, I thought it was fantastic but then I wasn't able to watch it in theatres. I didn't get some details because the audio wasn't that clear but then I thought it had a great storyline.

The Other End Of The Line- I thought this was gonna be pretty boring but man, it had such a chick flick-y feel to it and the cultural touch to this movie was pretty good. I have seen lots of movies that have the same conflict but this one really entertained me.

I will have the chance to watch lots of movies soon:)

The Beach.

I've always loved the beach. Everything about a beach makes me feel so calm and as if I'm in a good place. The sand, the waves, the people, the sunrise and the sunset, it's giving me peace of mind at the time being I was there. It was fun revisiting a beach for the Holy Week vacation, I went with the family to San Fabian, Pangasinan...the beach there was you know, kind of crowded but it was perfectly where I wanted to go to. I braced the waves, the salty water, even stepped on some creepy crawlies (I was squealing inside tell u what) while walking. I also walked by the shore at night, even though it was pretty dark, and the view was amazzzzzzzing. For the first time in a very long time I was able to go to the beach:) Thank you God.

Sunrise was awesome and I swam again for the last time, then we we went home afterwards, it was such a long drive home- probably 6 to 7 hours, but it was worth it cause I was with the family.

Ok seriously speaking, I don't think I'll ever be open to dating both sexes, that means I'd only be able to go for girls. But that's not how I want it to be, cause in the world that I live in, when someone dates a person of the same gender, they instantly get bashed or talked about but are we really those kind of people? I don't think so. We should not care about what other people think of our preferences cause if we do, then we choose to live through others' opinions thus not having a chance to be happy.

I'll give you an example, you're a guy who dates girls all the time and you realize that all the girls you date don't wanna take it to the next level, just casual flings...and then you share a drink with your guy best friend, then things turn to "yo, dude" to "dude, just one night please?", you engage in such activity that made you think over things, then you wake up next day feeling awesome, then things turn to something you're looking forward to. You found love. You then tell other people about this new thing, they judge you for it, you suddenly feel like it's "us against the world". What do you do? Same goes for girls who are in the same situation.

That's just one of the many things I wonder about. Since I don't know who I really am, I want to get a dose of it to find out.

Apparently I havent told Andee, one of my SOJ friends that we're leaving...she said I was an ass for not telling her. I feel like one now! But this effort made me smile:) Thanks darling.

Getting ready for everything:)

Wow, it's been like almost a month since I blogged here, I have been busy with school, and after that I wasn't able to update because there were soooo much stuff to do. We attended this seminar that lasted half a day, it was mostly about immigration and settlement and all the stuff in between. It actually gave me a feeling that nothing's gonna be the same anymore as soon as we get there, I mean new house, new town, new faces and new everything, basically new life. Not that I'm complaining but it's making me feel different. Anywho, i'm really looking forward to it. I thank God (I will always do that) because He made this all happen. We just hope that we won't have a hard time looking for what we're supposed to and whatnot.

Getting ready. This is my life.
