Picture perfect

I find myself staring in awe at the world a lot lately, it all just seems so special to me. There’s something so significant even about the little things that happen from the minute I wake up to the one where I go to bed. I have new reasons to be happy, to just stand there and smile about all the things I’m grateful for. The little kid that waved at me as I went to school, the knowing smiles from familiar faces, that perfect joke in class that sends us all wheeling hysterically till we’re frantically trying to breathe again, those silly conversations I cant imagine with someone else later in life.. All the goofy flirting with my high-school crushes. (:D my favorite). Coming home to shove the head phones in my ear and just drown in that perfect, clear voice and then to be shocked, pleased rather when I realize how much I get the lyrics. Or sometimes the song is just perfect in its own way, one such song right now would be, ” Waiting for superman – by Daughtry” . The poetry in it I can’t get bored of!

“Yea he’s still coming just a little bit late. He got stuck at the laundromat washing his cape”

When you’re done reading you should check out the video too.

That perfect scene in a movie. It’s so real that you’re moved, you experience the emotions they do. I still cant get it out of my head, that scene in MOS where little Cal is scared of the world and hides in the closet until his mother comes for him. Those adorable little eyes! I just cant shake them off. I guess I always adored kids

. Another kind of a perfect scene in my opinion would be the ones that just give you this rush with the amount of swag, and word pun there is in the dialogue, you know? An example for this too comes from the same MOS, (Yup, I’m turning into a superman geek :P) would be that final scene where Lois Lane welcomes Clark Kent to “the planet”. I was always a sucker for word pun.

Those climax revelations in mystery novels, that rush I get every time i find out who the murderer is in every Agatha Christie, or Sherlock Holmes novel. They’re probably the reason I like mystery novels in the first place. And of course, its hard not to mention this cause I spend half my life on Facebook. That perfect post, or status update from your favorite page! Nothing matches the rush you get every time I read a #teenagerpost that I can relate to.

You know what I mean? Then of course when I say picture perfect I can’t help thinking in the literal sense. My my Ian Somerhalder’s page updates! 😀 Keep ’em coming buddy.

TV LOOKOUT

And finally, time to bring out the big guns 😛 The reason I’m even writing this post would be my favorite show of all time: How I met your mother.For someone who likes the idea of picture perfect things. That show is like candy land! seriously! Its the main theme of it. Almost every instance, from Barney Stinson’s playbook to How ted meets the love of his life. Its all EPIC. I wouldn’t be wrong if I said that show redefined epic! those “Its the dream” lines, the “slapsgiving”, all the Canadian mockery and each of Banrey’s unbelievably long plays. What is fiction? Wikipedia defines it as ” the form of any work that deals, in part or in whole, with information or events that are not real, but rather, imaginary and theoretical—that is, invented by the author.” Fiction is something that doesn’t exist but, would be so cool if they did. The fact that this show makes a mind blowing sitcom with that very guideline is, to quote Barney Stinson, “Legen -wait-for-it- dary!” 😉

 

As long as these subtle puns and happy accidents keep intervening with the everyday course of living. Life is good 🙂

 

Ray of hope.

What is the worst feeling in the world? To me, it’s that sickening pit in my stomach when I have 20 chapters of chemistry left to study for an exam the next day! The disappointment at my incapacity. It’s almost intense enough to drown in. I’ve always hated this feeling. It’s the one thing that makes me lose my sense of balance, I know, ironic isn’t it? The girl with no fear (or at least that’s what he goes about pretending she is) is scared of tests.

Well it’s not ALL that juvenile if you think about it. 😛 What are tests?  It’s where you prove yourself and “test” your capabilities. So it’s okay to be nervous 😛 if your someone who craves perfection. And almost as if paraphrasing my fear in perhaps a much more dramatic way. I heard little Kal’s voice say, “The world’s too big, Mom”. I swear I almost choked on my food when I saw that sad little face hiding in the closet. I was watching man of steel. The one movie I swore I’d never watch. But then, procrastinating from studying seemed more important than keeping my word. 😛

Superman who I hated. Who I referred to as the “nerd who is scared of a green rock” had all my attention. Maybe it was my nervousness, maybe it was because I’ve been thinking a lot about the future lately, but the story of a boy trying to find his place in the world, that was something I could totally relate to.

I have to believe that you were sent here for a reason. And even if it takes the rest of your life, you owe it to yourself to find out what that reason is

Even a child, alone in a foreign world with no one who even belonged to the same species could find his way when he was given a few words of encouragement. Is that all we need? That helping hand that guides the way when we’re lost. It almost makes you feel, anyone can be superman if they tried. What I loved most about the movie was that superman was no longer the embodiment of perfection. He infact was just another human with every little flaw. The only thing special about him (besides the death ray eyes and the whole hulk strength) was that he wanted to be good. It’s like a subtle message, you can achieve anything as long as there’s a little good in you. Hope. That’s what it gave me.

And of course the striking new additions would be the super hot guy and this New found sense of humour that super man movies seemed to miss all this while. It’s finally helped it fit in with the intimidating line of super heroes today’s cinema offers. Well Mr. Clark, err.. Superman we seem to have had a misunderstanding before 😀 you don’t seem all that bad afterall.
