As I watch the sun slowly descend upon the world, I am always struck by a strange and timeless thinking that the world is still full of possibilities. I feel a connection to the grand, elusive scheme intertwining to all of humankind, and I am struck by something undefined. Even though I can’t define that thing, it still compels me to do better with my life than what I have done so far.
Another one of those days where it dawns on you how frighteningly shallow and vain (and to an extent, ingenuine) the world can be
im okay im not crying nope s’all good
What’s going on?
Focus at her face, look at how surprised she was.. people don’t normally ask her (with genuine sincerity) how she’s doing and… (cries)
(Spoiler warning)Saw Lucy the other day. As a movie enthusiast, I enjoyed it immensely. Great effects, great action, great concept, and Scarlett Johansson was, as always, perfect. But I have to be honest though, there were two things that irked me a bit: (1) the plot - the Korean mob plot felt too simple and out-of-place for a movie that promised complexity, (2) towards the end, the movie kind of seemed pointless.
It was smart, and sometimes it was almost thought-provoking. Almost. The whole movie revolved around the idea of a human gaining the ability use the brain’s 100% capacity. It was fascinating to see the effects, and in a way it makes you think.. ‘Shit, this is actually possible.’
But in the end, it (felt like it) took back everything it said.
This is my interpretation of the film: We have access to only a tenth of our brain’s capacity, and that is totally okay. As the movie presented, if we even go as far as 20%, we lose the things, the aspects, the parts of us that make us ‘human’. When Lucy gained access to 100% of her brain’s capacity, she literally turned to nothing (and everything). So, 10% isn’t bad. Because our mistakes, our shortcomings, our errors - they’re part of us. They’re inherent in us. Without them, we’d be something else, we’d be living emotionless, painless, and purpose-less lives. And that’s fucking boring, right? It sounds cool on paper; if it ever becomes possible to gain more access to our brain’s capacity, it would be ground-breaking… but only theoretically. As for its application, it wouldn’t be as amazing, because gaining more brain capacity would mean losing our humanity.
Now everyone’s posting about how excited they are for If I Stay, and I can’t help but feel so possessive.
There’s a fine line between wanting your favorite artists/films/books to be discovered by more people, and not wanting it to become mainstream. (Or in my case, “liked” by people I don’t like.)
I’m sure all of the students of AMV College of Accountancy, University of Santo Tomas would agree

"If you’re tired, you don’t really need to leave (or stop). You just need to take a rest."

Just realized that I haven’t been on Tumblr for almost 2 weeks now. Oh my God.
