I’m beginning to think it might be a wee bit too lofty to assume I’ll be able to write every day so let’s all just be thankful I can find time to write at all. The problem is, I get all these thoughts that I’d like to write down all at the wrong times! For example, at work, on the way to work, while cooking dinner, while studying, while reading, while driving, etc. When I finally get home at night and get a chance to write it all down, I’m so tired I can’t do anything more than lay down and go to sleep or numb my mind with a movie. In fact…
Sleep has been my extra curricular activity lately. Tuesday night I went to bed at 9:30pm and Wednesday I was asleep by 8:30pm. It kind of made me feel super old and boring to be honest. But at least I wasn’t super tired at work the following mornings.
Then I kind of undid all my good deeds from sleeping so much by seeing the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn Part Two. It was worth it though. It was a really good movie! It was also a great way to end the franchise. There’s a twist at the end of the movie that had me really pissed off while watching it but all was okay by the end of the movie. I can see why the screen play writer wrote it like that. I think it was a really good compliment to the book, especially since the book went in detail about peoples powers and we get to really experience Alice’s power in that scene and get a glimpse into how it must feel to live in her world. I don’t have any complaints about the movie except maybe baby Renesmee. That baby is super creepy. Okay and my second complaint would be getting more of the background of them hunting for an answer to how long Renesmee would live and getting to see more of Charlie. It was a bittersweet ending though. I love the movies and the books so much that it’s hard to be happy that the past movie came out. It’s the end of an era…albeit a good one.
I thought it was fitting that the director chose to show all the main characters from all the movies in the end before the credits ran. Because really, no movie/book was a standalone. You needed to read them all and watch them all to get the full story and get closure. This one might end up being my favorite of all the movies. Possibly… I’ll make my decision I suppose after I see the other movies again and watch this one like 4 more times. 😉
I’ve been in a wrestling match with my emotions lately. While I like my job and the ministries I’m involved in, I’m not happy with other areas of my life and it’s making me kind of depressed which makes me more tired and not wanting to go out to see people and not want to be involved in life in general. If you’re reading this and know me personally, you might be shocked, idunno. I’m not really sure what to do about what’s going on with me. It’s not as if there’s a switch to turn off how I feel unless I started taking drugs and that’s not going to happen. I know that drugs and alcohol don’t solve anything, they just hide the problem until you can no longer run from it or you end up dying. I know I can pray about it, and I have been, it’s just not helping me right now. They’re all subtle feelings too that end up compounding into something much larger and more painful. I don’t even have a positive way to end this paragraph. It’s interesting to think back on life when I’m feeling happy and when I’m feeling depressed and see how the picture changes. When depressed, the past seems like I’ve been mostly sad and depressed and unhappy most of my life. When I’m happy, it seems like I’ve just been hit with hard times here and there and some sad periods but mostly good and happy times. Different perspectives are pretty crazy huh? The same life lived, viewed from different lenses, has many different interpretations.
