So I’m sitting there, looking at these books wrapped in white. There are small words on the front. Hand crafted of course, these small imperfections that add to the beauty of the project. I looked at them, my mind racing with the possibility. That happens a lot, I love when my mind races. The feeling of possibility is absolutely beautiful. It was a gamble sure. Money to be placed on something And you don’t know what, but with some amount of trust I went through and bought a book taking a serious chance and having the scared part of my brain say “no put it back! You could hate it! But also I could love it so I stopped worrying (I mean I tried to I just tuned it out!) then I went ahead read the white paper one last time and tore it open! Taking a leap and hoping with excitement.
Oh boy! You’ve finally hit it big, you’re doing what you love and making money at it. Life couldn’t be better, it took you a few years but when Hollywood gets ahold that long time to make they happen will be set and passed in a minute of screen time so all we must do is do our thing. Create what we must to get to our happiness and watch all the years later when that work is glossed over in a minute.
Well another day passes, I’ve made some progress I’d like to say well I have, I mean in technicality. We write and we write listening to those around us who don’t believe in the medium so we keep going despite that it its hard on some of the days where you wonder if it’s what you are supposed to do. Of course you know it’s what you gotta do but there is that feeling. That maybe they are right well you gotta do your own thing thats it just do it.
Interstellar is a weird experience. When I first saw it I was sad and also mad. I was sad mad. Smad. It at first came off to me as a confusing mess that you couldn’t rewatch with the ideas into the film later, like what was possible with Inception. You see you watch that film and knowing what you know about the future of the timeline you can go..Oh cool, that’s some foreshadowing for what is to come. In this film, it is straight forward there really isn’t a thing that makes you know more in a satisfying way. When you rewatch this film, there is a sort of thing that happens where you see what’s gonna happen you’ve seen it before, but you can look at the finer details and see the smaller things. You almost are the main character Cooper you know as much as he does, he’s not like Cobb from inception. This guy doesn’t have a mysteriously dark past that he is withholding from the audience, he is just as confused as you are whenever he enters the wormhole. He is learning with you.
Another important note is how the film has a theme of how time for us in our current state marches ever forward in a straight line that is the only way that we can comprehend it in our present state so in the instance when Cooper sees time as we may in the future. It creates his personal hell. He regrets leaving and now he is sitting there watching himself leave no matter how much he begs himself to stay. I feel like we as people would do exactly that if they were trapped in a box of our past mistakes, yes we would try our best to change it and scream and cry about. As much as I would love to say I wouldn’t, I probably would. You might as well admit you would too even if just for a minute. That scene goes on for a few minutes, Mathew Mcconaughey (yes I did have to look up how to spell his lat name ) is great you can seriously feel the emotional anguish that his character is going through. The lesson here is that he was only able to move forward when he found a way to use the past to help him grow as a person more accurately save humanity. So in continuation of yesterdays post look at the past but don’t get stuck in a box wanting to change it.
Hey guys sorry there wasn’t a huge post today my sister graduated so that took up a lot of time! It was fun and exciting to see her start accomplishing her goals as she enters the super cool and scary adult world! Anyways be back tomorrow with something more! Question of the day though, How did you feel when you graduated? Let me know!
It’s plain at the start, the flavor is mostly there whenever you at your own flair, be it salt pepper, soy sauce or whatever else you think would be good. I was getting ready to make rice in the rice cooker. I pulled minute rice out of the cabinet and then the cooker, I then was stuck smelling the uncooked rice. This dry almost wooden floor emanating from the container. That was when it hit me almost as strong as the flavor. There is the idea that you start as something and then end as something else. Rice may start as something plain but it may end different flavors and ideas so just keep moving forward the likelihood you’ll change for the better is rather high.
Writing by itself is weird. It is not something you can easily brag about doing. There have been countless time I’ll talk to someone and they’ll say, “Oh reading is for losers.” The interesting thing is that by someone attacking reading they are also attacking the writing half of the equation, in order for a writer to get out there into the world someone has to do the reading, In movies, at some point, everyone is looking at words to describe what is to be there. The script is written before it is spoken. Therefore ink kisses the pages, making things come to fruition. Making it real. Still though the problem sits, you can’t casually show off writing, as far as anyone’s concerned they are simple runes struck on page, you can write the most heart felt thing on this earth but if someone isn’t completely open to it. Or if you know how to properly trigger someones emotion. It’s that emotional response, it doesn’t matter what it is about if you can make someone feel something you have succeeded
The catch is, you have to do it every day, test things, try things… you can’t care too much if someone hates what you do, everyday you learn more and more so judging someone on their past works , it is only a stepping stone, everyday is a step to perfect the craft even if no one is looking.

Well there is not too much that I can personally say on this holiday, that couldn’t be said better by others. This isn’t to diss myself, of course not but I suppose this would be a good time to just remember to be grateful for those around you, and lets remember those we have lost fondly. Make today a good one.
I was with my dad while he was making cinnamon rolls, nothing too crazy about that in the outlook. It was not something that normally happens with us so there so thinking of those rolls, the way they disintegrate in your mouth into these flakey sheets. What is even better is when this treat (sometimes breakfast,) in this case that is what it was. So after he was finishing placing the frosting across the buns. I thought back to the way I remember the taste, almost too sweet but it also called back to a simpler time . One of a childhood, imagine the great excitement I felt when I was able to take the last remaining bit of frosting out of the container. It was likely to be gone quickly but that remnants of flavor was something that simply had to be savored. So that is what I did. After it was gone I had a desire to get more of that feeling back. As I got every little bit out of the container a thought crossed my mind, we alway push for more and to grow. I was beginning to think of keeping the filing going, we have always had desire to grow Bill Gates, who created Microsoft, kept working and building until he made something far bigger than himself. So let us keep searching for that bigger and better frosting on those cinnamon buns, lets make something delicious!
