Good Old March, Sleeping, Mirror Mirror and Hunger Games

Sleeping

I’ve had enough of hard times going to sleep already.  I’m on my last week of US Shift. With Psalms 4:8, I claim for good day sleeps.

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe. Psalms 4:8

Mirror Mirror

Aside from the wicked witch, 7 dwarfs, the apple and the prince, I cant remember anymore what Snow White’s story is. The Movie Mirror Mirror was lovely. It was light, funny and even if I cant remember the details of the story, I know they did change the twists.

Hunger Games

I can’t get enough of it. The day after I watched the movie, I opened twitter, saw it trending and I was filled with Hunger Games thoughts. I searched for the next 2 books’ synopsis(Catching Fire and Mockingjay). I think I want to read the series. Catching Fire is set to be released on November 2013.  I searched for Youtube videos. I tweeted about it. I can’t say that I super liked the movie. I just cant think of the appropriate word to describe it. Actually, I fell asleep during the first few parts of the movie – that is because we were watching the movie 3 hours before I hit the my 24th hour awake that day.

We were saying that Hunger Games was like  Big Brother, due its tagline(at least for the Philippines) ”teleserye ng totoong buhay”, and SurvivorBut Hunger Games is way, way morbid. Too bad that many say that most of the movie’s twists were already seen in the movie Battle Royale including the survival game, lottery thing and the couple twist.

I did NOT like the killings. But taking it away from the big screen will defeat the mood of the story.

If there is one thing that I really liked about the movie/story, it would have beenKatniss, the main character, a resemblance of a future-day Joan of Arc, having the guts to face her society’s and current time’s greatest challenge through all odds.

Starting the last week of March….

If a drop of water falls in a lake, there is no identity. But if it falls on a leaf of lotus, it shines like a pearl. So choose the better place where you would shine and learn where to draw the line. Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in life makes the difference. –from an anonymous SMS sender.
