"But I'll tell you the same thing I tell my students when they complain about the depressing nature of American literature: life is not a PG feel-good movie. Real life often ends badly, like our marriage did, Pat. And the literature tries to document this reality, while showing us it is still possible for people to endure nobly."
It's gonna be made into a movie, starring the gorgeous Bradley Cooper *drool*! I love it when they make movies out of the books I read, especially when my favorite actors are being cast in them. Can't wait~
Everything just depresses the hell out of me lately. The injured Malaysian kid who got robbed in London riot - couldn't get the image out of my head, I kinda regret watching that video now. The US debt crisis that could lead to global economic collapse - what if there'll be no money to buy food nanti iskkk. A friend who just lost her baby - may Allah continue to give her strength, Amiinnn.
And the PMS is definitely making me feel worse. Reading books about teenage angst and rebellion like Catcher in the Rye and The Perks of Being a Wallflower (it's gonna be made into a movie yeay!) also doesn't help at all.
Tried to cheer myself up by watching my favorite TV shows - Friends, How I Met Your Mother, and my favorite movies - Closer, Love Actually for the past few days. I watch Closer everyday that I can almost memorize all the lines in every scene now. I don't know, I guess I feel a bit better after that. It's temporary but well, better than nothing huh? Cepatlah boleh sembahyang balik so I can get back my inner peace and get over this unpleasant feeling.
In the meantime, I leave you with my favorite lines from my favorite twisted love story ever, Closer, featuring the oh-so-awesome Clive Owen:
Dan the Obituarist:You think love is simple.
You think the heart is like a diagram.
Larry the Doctor:Have you ever seen a human heart?
"I think that if my friends or family are upset, I won't tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn't change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have. Good and bad. Just like what my sister said when I had been in the hospital for a while. She said that she was really worried about going to college, and considering what I was going through, she felt really dumb about it. But I don't know why she would feel dumb. I'd be worried, too. And really, I don't think I have it any better or worse than she does. I don't know. It's just different. Maybe it's good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it's okay to feel things. And be who you are about them."
