uh the text box looked weird there for a moment.
hi i literally have forgotten what this is.
[smacks mic] iS thiS thIng oN????
i'm kidding, hi hello. for those who've forgotten me, i get it. i forget myself like everyday.
i'm jess! the resident dad, or i used to be at least. it's been a lil bit since i logged into this site and honestly, i felt the tug the most today. the tug never left, but some days it's more than other.
i think i'm just feeling really fuzzy right now, i've been on a little movie spree and i finally made myself it up and watch call me by your name. now. i love that book, i think i read it in my earlier high school years, so it held a very special place in my heart. it isn't really even the plot- though, i adore the plot and the characters. what got me with the book was the feeling that these memories being retold were my own? i felt so invested in the lack of time and how i could barely register how i felt for a very long time, that the book was just so much more magical. it's all about the experience, i recommennd you read it.
anyway, i was putting off watching the movie because as an avid read, book-to-movie adaptations will forever frighten me, i'm afraid they won't do the book justice a lot of the time. i mean, we have gems like harry potter and perks of being a wallflower and honestly, i enjoyed the hunger games movies. but for cmbyn, i was nervous they wouldn't encapsulate that ethereal feeling i feel every time i reread it. but tonight, watching it with a big chocolate chip muffin and the book snuggly tucked against my chest, i really felt like they pulled it off. i felt myself so emmersed in the world and in the two characters and the wonderful scenery. it's a slow, methodical movie that just put me in one sweet mood.
i didn't come here to gush about cmbyn, though i'm very much just a general pile of goo when it comes to contemporary books. i like to be transported into a story that could definitely happen right next door to me, or in another country. i rave about books like aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe or the sun is also a star or boy meets boy (which i finished reading for the first time today on the bus! honestly, one of my favourite books of all time) because those books make me feel so good.
but whatever, if you're still reading this, i'm sorry for the impromptu gushing over some of my favourite books. i've been really busy with university, i'm in my second semester and it's just more stressful than my first. but oh well, i faked my way through that one so i definitelyy can fake myself through this one.
how have you all been?? i miss it here. this was a place i loved to come and hone my writing skills, y'know? i still write, i'm really just in the process of building my own story, it's been creatively blissful.
tell me about your lives, please. i do miss hearing about all the fun things that happen in others' lives. maybe tell me your favourite book? that'd be fun! if any of you are book lovers like me, lets connect heh.
alright ! please stay well rested, guys!! make sure you drink enough water, take your supplements, take time off to take care of yourself, maybe watch a movie or listen to music or read or anything ! love you guys, bye bye. < 3
