Well besides from all that drama, I’m currenly reading ” The count of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas. It’s a good book , kinda like a romance story for men.( Okay, I’m lying, it’s an action book for girls). The story is quite interesting for the hero is betrayed by people he thought would do no harm to him , not because he’s all naive and stupid and such but because he feels that he’s invaluable and thus has noting that would make others go against him. ( However as you can tell, he’s totally wrong). What this reminds me is how messed up life is. As long as you succeed , there will always be others who are planning your downfall so they can step on top of you to be where you are. Even when you feel that you are no important to this world and that you’re accomplishments are minor, there is someone out there jealous of what you do, what you have and what you are. To blind to this fact can be quiet dangerous as the book shows us with Dantes’, the hero of the story, fall from fortune. Therefore, I believe that we should enjoy and share our accomplishment but make sure to not over do the sharing to the point it becomes bragging and be aware of those around us so we will be prepare for the traps they will set along the way.
I’m going to the immature of blaming something else for something that happened right now : My school work made it pretty difficult to post last week, sorry . ( There I just did it. I’m a horrible person. Fight me.) Other than that drama, I took an English test last time on the book ” All quiet on the western front”. The test was basically me evaluating this evaluation of the book by this professional website (Well, I think it was professional. I would tell you the name of the group if i could remember). This reminded me the reason why it’s a good thing to watch/read/listen to many reviews by others before deciding if you should skip or take your chances with the movie, video game, books and such. Everybody has different opinions on any subject thus watching one review for anything is a bit biased for the review is based off what the reviewer feels about the item.( Oh dear, even I have trouble understanding that sentence a bit). For example, one review might praise the item for something clever that they enjoyed while another review might berate the item for that same item because they found it distasteful.
“Oi ! I thought my opinion matter the most when it comes to deciding what I like !” you exclaimed angrily.
True true, my reader. However, are you willing to spend like 60 bucks on a new game only to find out you hate it ? Or go watch a movie that you absolutely despise with all your being and wished that you could jump on a time machine, and go back to steal the tickets so you wouldn’t get to see that awful movie ? ( *cough* Avatar the last air-bender live action movie *cough-sob*) If so, then forget those reviews ! Go do what you want to do now!( Except for jumping off that cliff. Bring a parachute first). However, if you’re a bit more careful and would rather use that money for something you’ll enjoy then reviews are great way to test the waters.
For Jaws. By going over many reviews of an item, you can see the strong and weak points of the items and predict if you can enjoy it or not.
What is up people !? ( *insert witty response here*) This week I watched an interesting movie called “Paths of Glory” in class. It is a World War One movie ( as in it’s setting is in World War One, not made during World War One on the battlefield with bullets and artillery shells flying everywhere). It’s quite a tragic movie and will make you end up protesting to the things done in the movie loudly like a child being strapped to a chair being forced to eat raw onions. When you think about it, nearly any book/story movie/tv show can leave us into that state of protest ( I’m not so sure about auto/biography and tv documents). Why you ask ? Simply, they grab the problems of this world,slap neon lights all over it and then wave/ram it into our face until we notice it. Just think about it. In nearly any fictional story where there is a corrupted society or it is a dystopia, and before you even read three chapters, red lights are flashing in your head telling you that the world you’re reading in is messed up . However you’re not thinking about how messed up the world you live in is messed up when you’re driving to buy that expensive cup of coffee are you ? Looking at this from far away, it’s clear that fiction is the window/door that leads to awareness. Sure, maybe the plot might be unrealistic, the characters could be flat, one-dimension, the setting bizarre and strange but the reason why it’s like that could be that the author is trying to state a deep and meaningful message that applies to us, the real world. ( That or maybe they’re just bad writers)
I.AM.SORRY.* bows a thousand times* I was way too busy with doing school work to post last week’s post. Well, here it is now finally.( I can already sense your ever growing excitement *Sarcasm mode*). So I know I once typed/wrote about finding references to mythology and religion once but holy cow, today my mind was blown. While taking a quiz on ” All Quiet On The Western Front” my teacher made me come to realize that references can ninjas at times.( Can’t see them, can’t hear them, but they’re there.) There was really clever reference to Charon and the river of Styx that required you to look at it from a whole new perspective to realize it. In the same vain, it is similar to looking at an art piece. Sometimes it is clearly obvious what the artist’s message is. However, there are other times when the message isn’t all that clear and it takes you a minute or two ( or hour if you’re that type of person) and maybe a lot of head titling. Getting out of that box might also be required. ( I’m looking at you Snake.) Overall, some things require having to think outside that damp cardboard box and look at the big bold world outside. And after you’re done you can go to bed.
Hey, Hey, Hey ! This week I was reading “All Quiet On The western Front” by Erich Maria Remarque. I have to say, it’s a pretty good book. There’s action, drama, and tragedy but has a ‘mature’ feel to it because the violence and horrors of war is not gloried in any way. While reading the book, I couldn’t help but think how the story was kinda similar to the anime “Attack on Titan”. Both start out light-hearted with the main characters being in a chaotic world but everything being sane at the time beginning. However, things began to fall apart as time pass on. We are force to watch the violence and madness of the war break the characters, turning them from young innocent children to cold, numb adults . It is clear that life and experience can alter and shape a child into becoming the adults they will be. From desensitizing Paul Baumer, the main character of the book, to making Eren, the main character of the anime, bloodthirsty for vengeance, the effects of violence and war can be very damaging .

This week, my teacher gave us some more tips on romance. He lectured us about the art of gift giving and now that I think about it, it’s so true. I remember this hilarious video where the posts of unhappy people were shown. In every post, they had a complainant on what their lover gave them for valentine days. Even thought the reasons were never told , you could conclude that the poor guy either procrastinated,forgot, or was a bit insensitive . (
that or he didn’t care). However, the person on the receiving end of the gift was clearly upset/not pleased . I guess the moral of the story is that if you forgot to get a good present for someone for any reason, you might as well just flat out admit to them that you forgot and you’ll make it up to them or whatever instead of getting them something weird/questionable and risking . ( what makes a good present you ask ? Something that the person will like/apperciate getting.)
