    On Christmas of 1914,

    there was a cease fire between two armies during World War 1. They met each other in no mans land, sharing gifts and playing sports. This is one of the very few commercials that are worth watching. https://youtu.be/NWF2JBb1bvM

    I watched a Documentary called The Barkley

    Date Night is one of my favorite movies.

    I can see how the title might be misleading and have judgmental others think it is a mega-romantic movie when it isn't that at all. The first part of the movie is extremely slow and many might say boring with caps, but if you do not watch it and pay attention to it, I will...

    I love Into the Wild

    for just this reason. I think sometimes about materialism as a sickness, an epidemic that no one seems to be able to break free from. We all sit in public places whilst staring into our phones and all I'm thinking is that I'm looking up into a void of humanity, I only see robots...

    As long as you can still grab a breath,

    you fight. You breathe. Keep breathing. When there is a storm. And you stand in front of a tree. If you look at its branches, you swear it will fall. But if you watch the trunk, you will see its stability. The Revenant

    No one can ever prepare you

    for what happens when you have a child. When you see the baby in your arms and you know that it's your job now. No one can prepare you for the love and the fear.

    Has anyone seen the film Incendies?

    It's amazing but at the same time heartbreaking, about siblings searching for their brother who was taken from their mother during the Middle eastern conflict & Lebanon civil war. I was emotionally drained afterwards but it's so unforgettable and special.

    .. It makes me realize that no matter how rotten the situation is, something good will come out of it... No matter how down I felt these past few days, the end was just the beginning... I am more ready to get on this roller coaster ride, called LIFE!
