It’s been a long 365 days without meat, but I’m actually proud that I was able to get through it. And I’m excited for tomorrow’s lunch (korean BBQ) with my favorite three people in the whole wide world.
Now it’s time for a new resolution. Any suggestions?
"To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die"
So I finally watched (500) Days of Summer. And it was everything I thought it could be and more.
The love story, the characters, the quirky parts of the movie that made it oh so unique with a touch of Juno humor. Everything clicked perfectly. And don’t even get me started on the music. The soundtrack is flawless. Every scene received the right accompaniment of music that it deserved. Joseph Gordon-Levitt became Tom. And it was amazing to watch his journey.
What made me love this movie so much, I’m still uncertain. I would love to elaborate more but I feel as if I should contemplate and digest what I have seen. For now all I can say is that it is the one movie where everything made perfect sense to me. Where everything I had ever questioned about life was finally answered. Through sound, pictures, and silence, this beautifully created film capture my heart. And I will never forget it.
Get ready for the spam of pictures tomorrow. Because it’s coming.
"you’ll come back when they call you no need to say goodbye"
I’m serious when I say I don’t remember the first time I met you. I really don’t. I remember thinking Joanne was some new girl from Korea, yet I don’t remember the moment I was introduced to you. But I do remember the exact moment when I knew we would be as great friends as we are now. It was Christmas, and we were all gathered at June’s house. You all had arrived back from ski trip, and I was feeling so isolated and left out, even though you all included me in the conversations. We ate so much, and you were the only one who wanted to get seconds. I was amazed at your ability to confirm your lingering hunger, while I sat there, hesitant at the idea of standing up and getting more food. In the end, I chickened out, and you left to get more. In the end, I was the one with the half empty stomach while you were satisfyingly full. We all went upstairs to June’s room, to goof off and take pictures, poking at our food babies in the mirror. And when Joanne, June, and Sarah crowded on her bed, you and I sat on the floor. I don’t recall what exactly we talked or giggled about, but at that moment I had never felt so sure. I knew at that instant that we had grown to become better friends in a matter of minutes. I can’t explain it, but it was as if something had formed, a bond had been created that couldn’t be broken. And ever since that day our friendship has grown stronger than I have ever imagined.
It’s been a year since that day, and its been years since the first time I met you, but looking back at all of my memories, I don’t know how I would live without them. Korea brought all of us even closer together, but most importantly our friendships grew even stronger. Our plane trip home with Daniel in the way, the unstable subway rides, our horrid jetlag, and our memorable bus ride to the airport, Regina Spektor and the kids we would leave behind. We survived through it all, even though we were at our bests and worsts. And I still am amazed at how we got through those two weeks without any fights or arguments.
I really can’t believe how much you’ve left an impact on my life. I’m not exaggerating when I say that I consider you my little sister. I really do. And although sometimes we may switch roles and your the older one lecturing me about confidence, its nice to know that we’re there for each other. You make me want to become a better person, because I want to set a good example for you. If I’m ever confronted with dilemma that puzzles my moral compass, your usually one of the key parts of my ultimate decision.I know my lack of confidence can be annoying, but your inflated confidence is what I admire the most out of you. Your everything I’m not; pretty, confident, and intelligent, not too mention sometimes a bit snarky. But I look up to you nonetheless. I try to do better and be better so that maybe one day you will look up to me. And maybe I’ll learn to look upon myself better, too.
So maybe I don’t remember or exactly know your birthday when asked. And maybe I don’t remember the first words you ever spoke to me. But I do know this. Your one of the closest people in my life, and definitely one of my real best friends. So little sister, tease on, party hard, and know that I’m always here for you.
