After reading Romeo and Juliet and then watching one of the versions of the movie, I have to say that I preferred the book. It let me imagine the story more, even if sometimes I didn't understand what the characters where saying. The language used was the same as in the movie but I felt like in the book I had the chance to interpret certain things, I could let my imagination make the story up as I read while in the movie I felt like I was just losing my time and my ability to create things and stories. I like of the book that you knew exactly when an act started and ended, I mean in a play something like that is pretty important. I also didn't like the movie as much because I felt like some parts of the movie, like the first gun fight at the beggining, was being portrayed as a joke, as if they felt like they had to make the movie a comic. For these reasons I prefer the book instead of the movie.
My word? Achieve. I guess I just don't want this year to be like all of the ones before. Wasted. I want to take risks, be happy, improve my mental health, and grow intellectually. I want to be smarter, more responsible, friendlier, fitter, healthier. This year is the one in which I start taking life seriously and discovering who I am. I've already started finding myself but I still don't have the confidence that I need to go out and be me without shame or insecurity. But hopefully by the end of this year, I will be who I've always wanted to be.
Now as for what I'll do to actually achieve things and not just think about it, I will daily remind and motivate myself so that I can do what I have to do. I will try to travel to new places so that I can meet new people and see their perspective of life. That's for my intellectual growth. To improve my mental health I will stay away from situations that might give me bad anxiety. That doesn't mean that I'll stay away from everything that's challenging or that takes me out of my comfort zone, just that I'll take the challenges slowly but surely. To be happy I'll just stay away from negative people and negative things. It's kind of a part of my mental health.These are just general things that I'll do but of course there are more specific things that I'm not gonna go over.
I've said this many times but I just really don't want to waste this year. I hope that I'll be able to keep up with my goals and actually do what I want to do. I guess the only thing that matters is that at least I try. I know the process will be long, probably longer than one year but I'm determined to reach my goals. I do intend to complete them in at most 3 years. It is more than enough time and I'm giving myself actual goals and chances. I hope that by the time I graduate I am exactly who I've always wanted to be.
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken, is a sci fi book about dystopian future where tennagers have a disease which adults are scared of. There are 5 types of the disease and each type is a different power. Some can control other people's minds, some play with fire/cause explosions, some are extremely intelligent, some can move objects with their minds and some can control electricity. Ruby, the protagonist, can control other people's minds and erase the memoriesthey have of her. She was classified as one of the really intelligent ones by accident. All teenagers, including Ruby, are taken away to camps much like those during the holocaust except they're not as violent. Psi (the adults that work at the camps), keep an eye on all the teens, they are all afraid of their abilities and treat them like freaks. No kid is left roaming around if a Psi has them in their sight. Ruby manages to escape with the help of one of the Psi, who works with an organization that supposedly rescues kids so they can use their powers freely, but really they use the kids as weapons against the government. The main conflict in the story right now is that Ruby isn't sure if she should trust these people, she has a bad feeling about it all and she feels like running away from them, even though they bailed her out of Thurmond, the camp she was in. So long the book is really engaging, Ruby's character is still a mystery and so is the Psi who helped her escape but still you are emotionally attached to Ruby's character, although not to the rest of the characters in the book. So far this book is awesome and I really hope it stays that way.
How can the universe be infinite? But at the same time, how can it have an end? Infinity is impossible but if you think about it, the idea of infinity not existing is impossible too. What about the rest of the space? What would be in it?
For humans it is impossible to imagine either possibility. They are just mind blowing. Our human minds are too basic to understand such complex concepts. No one really understands them, and even if they did, at the moment of explaining it to others, the others wouldn't understand. So really there would be no use in understanding it.
Some questions, like this one, no one has the answer to. Why should we dwell so hard on something we have no hopes of discovering at least for a few hundred years? Sure it might be interesting and engaging but at the end of the day it just leads to frustration and confusion.
