Last night, or this morning depending on your concept of time, I watched “The To Do List”.
I thought it was great, although normally I don’t really like these kinds of movies.
After I watched it I read some reviews/comments and while many agreed that it was really good, some people also said that it was cliché, very “American Pie”-ish, etc. I guess it is true that it’s similar to “American Pie” but I think the female character is refreshing. I like that she’s a good student and over-achiever. I feel like in movies with the theme of teen-sex, the characters are rarely like that. Like you can either be smart or having sex, never both. I also loved that she didn’t regret any of it. In my experience as a teenager, sex is something that adults make a huge deal of, particularly the possible negatives that accompany sex. Things like STD’s, STI’s, being taken advantage of, ‘saving yourself’, pregnancy, the sin of masturbation and becoming used goods were always emphasised at my secondary school… Probably because it was an all-girls Catholic school, but yeah. Nobody ever said that it could be fun, nobody ever said that it doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with your value. And while I do not advocate teen-sex, I just think it’s not the end of the world, and “The To Do List” made that clear. Obviously, who you’re doing it with and how you feel about them can make sex a big deal but that’s up to you. Just be ready and safe.
So… if you are of age (because this is rated R), and you’re okay with this topic, I think it you should watch it. The tagline is kinda gross (“her first F”??) and maybe you won’t read into the story as much as I did, but it’s funny. Who doesn’t like a comedy?
I took a really long nap today and I dreamt about one of my friends and it was really nice.
When I checked my phone a few hours later, I saw that he had texted me.
I can’t help but feel like this is some act of fate, regardless of how small it is.
Maybe I’m looking for things that aren’t there.
Yesterday I was doing some thinking, about other people and then about myself. I have previously come to terms with the fact that I have only mediocre knowledge about a lot of things. Like “Jack of all trades, master of none”. I feel like such a poser >.<
So, to challenge myself to be a master of at least a few trades, I made a list:
It’s basically what inspired this whole blog, my quest to become a real live girl who is “for real”. Don’t be afraid to reach your true potential.
So far, I’ve been sort of wasting my 2.5 week holiday, but I guess that really depends on how you define “wasting”.
Today, I read this book and it definitely wasn’t a waste. I really liked the characters (except the father because he was terrible). The emphasis on honesty really resonated with me; I’ve always wanted to be an honest person. I like how the truth set everyone free.
