Joseph Kony needs to be stopped. Crime against humanity needs to end. If we are able to capture the #1 worst criminal in the world today and end his formidable treatment of African children, we begin our journey in ending all world crisis and stopping these criminals in their tracks.
Yesterday night, I watched the film that has been talked about as one of the most scary ghost movies this year; The Woman In Black.
When I first heard about the book being made into a movie, I was up and eager to go watch seeing as this is one hell of a ghost story. When Daniel Radcliffe came into picture, I was already spazzing quite a bit.
There has been quite a buzz about this film; jumpy, scary… the whole shabang I heard. Trust me in definitely is jumpy and at times purely scary but for me, it lacked the whole terror factor. I thought Daniel Radcliffe’s acting was very good and I don’t have any complaints at all. I just wanted to go to a film to be terrified and I didn’t quite get it. The ending…. we’ll leave that to be judged.
Would I recommend this film? To certain people, yes but overall it’s just.. okay.
… I just wanted to post this.
This is probably just a reminder for myself but if this catches anyone then maybe this will benefit you too.
I just watched a documentary about Korean high schools and the reasons behind why there is so much pressure for them to study and achieve exceptional grades. I’m already a fan of K-Pop and i’ve been interested in Korea for a while now, so this documentary didn’t shock or dumbfound me as much. What it did do was make me acknowledge, more deeply, that perceptions, expectations and ideals are so much more harder to let go of than i thought.
We spend most of our lives trying to live up to our parents, relatives, teacher’s or whoever’s expectations. Realistically, we try to live up to society’s expectations. We try to make ourselves fit into society’s ideals and expectations.
Call it farfetched if you want but in order to be accepted in our world, we have to change who we are. In trying to climb up the ladder of social acceptance, the ones who we hurt… the ones who we neglect… the ones who matter the most become lost.
I know i;m just one of many who struggle to accept me as i am, but i am trying. Sometimes tumblr doesn’t help, with dashboards filled with pictures and videos of people who are attractive.
Learn to love yourself as you are. Let no one tell you can’t do something or your not worth it. It is tough and a struggle to keep as you are in this world but there are people out there who will help you along the way. If there’s anyone reading this, thinking that there’s no one… i’ve got your back.
