So I have been on summer break for a little over two weeks now. And most of what I have been doing is watching movies. Ever since I started my Netflix account thats what I end up doing most days. And I like it cause I am able to catch up on movies I didn’t get to watch. I think I am a little obsessed with it right now. I have been watching a lot of movies,  some of which are pretty good movies. Aside from watching movies at home I have also watched two really good movies out in theaters too. Up and Hangover. Both movies I recommend for people to watch. I also recommend Secret Life Of Bees, Into the Wild, and Smart People .

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

things to ponder.

April 15, 2009

“To live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning in the suffering.”

— Viktor Frankl

I heard this quote several times in my religious studies class. It was not until yesterday that I actually started to think about the meaning of what it is saying. The man who wrote/said this was a Holocaust surviver. Viktor Frankl before the Holocaust was a doctor of neurology and psychiatry. While he was in the concentration camp wrote a manuscript called The Doctor and the Soul, but that was destroyed when they found it. He did let this discourage him. It became he driving force and hope to be reunited with his family. Unfortunately, his family did not survive. He wrote another book called Man’s Search for Meaning. This man despite everything continued to live and continue to make his life have a meaning. 

When I heard that the quote above was a said/written by a Holocaust surviver it then somewhat made sense. But isn’t it so true. We continually complain in what we do not have, what has happened to us, we as a society tend to focus on the negative rather than the good that comes out of lives. But why? It does nothing, but bring us down more. The bad things happen in our lives for a reason and they shape who we are. The suffering we endure during our live can help us be stronger and better people, but that is not possible unless we understand the good that came from the suffering. When we survive or overcome the suffering, we learn from it. We are able to have this understanding for our life. It helps us gain fulfillment in our own lives. 

What do you think?

weirdness.

Saw this video and thought it was very strange. What are your takes on it? I guess I can see the correlation to the song and video but yeah. It kind of tripped me out. Oh well, its art.

proud days

April 7, 2009

Yesterday, I found out that my boyfriend, J Diaz, got an internship with Mattel. So very very proud of him. I knew he would be able to get it. He is very talented if you don’t believe check out his online portfolio here. He is probably going to hate me for putting that link up for you guys to see. But yeah, I don’t care cause I am very happy for him. I knew he had enough talent to get it. 

Well that is it for now.

fails.

April 6, 2009

I know I said I would post everyday during break and I did not. Apologies. I have just been enjoying my spring break. Been reading a lot over the break. I am rather embarrassed to say what I was reading, but I enjoy reading. There is something about being able to escape ones life and enter a world imagination, fantasy, romance or what have you. For me personally, I can get so immersed in the book I forget what is happening around me. And all I see is what is happening in the book.

I just somewhat recently picked up leisure reading. I am glad I did, but I feel like I have so many years to catch up on cause there are so many good books out there old and new that I won’t be able to get to them all.

Ramble ramble ramble. That’s all I seem to be done lately on this blog. Hopefully next time I will have some content that may enrich your lives. AHAHAHA.

Till next time.

breaks.

March 29, 2009

I am finally on spring break, but I have nothing to do. My much anticipated spring break is not filled which much.

I am watching Bolt right now.  Seems pretty good so far. Sorry for not posting the last couple days. I will be posting more this week.

So until then.
