When I mean movie marathon, I MEAN movie marathon. I seriously never think I have spent so much time just watching a screen, and it isn’t even a TV-show. It’s not Riverdale or Friends or TBBT or 13 reasons why. Because when it comes to TV-shows, you have a really easy time predenting that you are not waisting your whole day. It will just be “one more episode, oh gosh I can’t miss the next episode but then the season is finished so it’s like a natural break there, oh my god it’s soo exciting if I just stop watching here I won’t be able to think of something else until I continue, and I have homework. It’s better if I just watch this next episode so I in 45 minutes will be able to focus” but of course it doesn’t end there. It doesn’t end until your phone or laptop or iPad dies and you wake up from the “coma”, blinking like you have never seen sunlight and realises for the first time that you don’t have a life. And then you need to eat a bunch of chocolate just to comfort yourself. Okay, this may be just me, because it feels like I just described rock bottom. I mean, sure the top is lonely but when you are as deep down as possible you are a whole other sort of lonely. You are an isolated prisoner. And if there are other people down there, it is to dark for you to be able to recognise each other. What was I talking about again? Oh right, movie marathon. So anyways, B and I had a movie marathon yesterday. It wasn’t even intended. We started by watching Hush because we were bored and the opposite to being bored is being scared. Then we just kept going, watching Dumb and Dumber and lastly Nerve. I mean, these movies clearly don’t have anything in common with each other whatsoever. But they were all great. Hush made us paranoid so we almost spilled out the bowl of popcorn when mom opened the door, probably jumping two meters up and then trying to act normal. (Must have looked suspicious now come to think about it. I hope she doesn’t think we are doing drugs.) We laughed like crazy when we watched Dumb & Dumber. And Nerve made us curl up in a corner of the sofa, with our eyes stuck on the screen. Then we went to bed, and surprisingly, slept very well. Today we somehow ended up watching ANOTHER movie, this time To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. And it was GREAT. I am feeling a little educated in special areas. A little inspired. But considering what weird mix lead to this, I may not do anything from the inspiration. Instead, I should read. We have an English assignment til after the fall vacation, and a part of it is reading an English book. I chose The Perks of Being a Wallflower. And I loved it, at least the few pages I have read this far. It is written like a diary, and the boy who is the writer and main character have something very familiar to me. He writes as he speaks, meaning he always leave the things he originally talked about, following side tracks and not sticking to the subject. He even said it himself. But he does have more interesting things to say. Which means I should get to reading it now.
I discovered though, that it has been filmed and are laying on Netflix. Maybe I should go that way instead? Emma Watson are in it, and I have a minor crush on her so I don’t know why not. Hmm. Let’s see. Anyways, gotta go either decision.
Bye for today!
