Hey, everyone! I know I don't post very often and honestly, it's mostly because I don't have much to post about. I want my posts to have meaning and purpose. Today is National Dog Day and is kind of hard because I no longer have my Puddles here with me. No happy tail wags to greet me when I come home for the weekend and no cuddles on the couch. It's very rare that I cry over death. I think the last time I cried over someone passing was my grandpa when I was nine. This was different. I grew up with my dog Puddles, having him to be put down was like I lost a part of my childhood just died. I was an emotional wreck for two weeks, trying hard not to think about it because I knew I would start crying. Well, about five months later, I feel like having a discussion about death.
Mom, Dad, and I talked, we agreed that Puddles was hurting and something needed to happen but we didn't really talk about it. Now keep in mind, we thought Puddles was going to die five years before because of how he was acting and snapped out of it so at the time I just thought it was just chit-chat. My dad called me on a Tuesday and said that he had to take Puddles in. That definitely wasn't an easy decision for my parents and I knew that I couldn't make that decision, which leads into a bit of a segway of sorts.
Death is an interesting topic because people talk about it but we don't talk, talk about it. Mostly because it leads to religious debate and to be honest, it's stupid to fight over this. Whatever you believe in we are all afraid of death. Yes, I said it, we fear death. It's a natural thing to do. I believe it is a bit of pride with a major splash of FOMO, Fear Of Missing Out. We all want to make a mark on this world in some way or another. I have come to relevation to welcoming death instead of fearing it. Someday I will pass away just like any one else and all I can stay is to embrace life anyway I can. Maybe I'll read more books or travel more but I no longer fear death like I did before.
Now onto a happier topic!
I saw Suicide Squad and honestly, it was good but disappointing. For a person that actually reads comics and watch the animated series I can say that Jared Leto's Joker was interesting but nothing showed the true Joker. Harley Quinn is supposed to be basically physically and emotionally abused by Joker, and Suicide Squad is where she starts to realize that she doesn't need Joker that she always has before.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
