DISCLAIMER!: For your own sake, please just skip this post if you haven’t gotten to watching Restless. (please know that i’m judging you though. sooooo much judgement right now.)

“As I write this letter, the ocean breeze feels cool on my skin.
The very ocean is soon to be my grave.
They tell me I will die a hero, that the safety and honor of my country will be the reward for my sacrifice.
I pray they are right.

My only regret in life is never telling you how I feel.
I wish I were back home.
I wish I were holding your hand.
I wish I were telling you that I have loved you and only you since I was a boy.
But I am not.
I see now that death is easy. It is love that is hard.

As my plane dives, I will not see the face of my enemies.
I will only, instead, see your eyes.
Like black rocks frozen in rain water.
They tell us that we must scream, “Banzai” as we plunge into our target.
I will instead whisper your name and in death, as in life, I will remain forever yours.”

This is just. omg. i can’t even… too touching:’)


Silver Screens (Part 1)

by retrodiction

So I’ve been watching a lot of movies lately (WHICH, ACCORDING TO MY RESULTS, I CLEARLY SHOULD NOT BE DOING) and i really think they deserve more recognition than they actually get. I guess i really like these kinds of movies because there’s always something you can relate to.

Also because their quotes can’t stop screaming out “NOTICE ME. NOTICE ME!”

The Art Of Getting By

Movie 1: “we live alone, we die alone, everything else is just an illusion.”

This film is just downright cliched and totally predictable. (not what i loved about it) Guess what the film’s about! Love. 
You can already imagine me rolling my eyes.

DORKALERT! “Rules of cutting school.”

1. Cutting school is fun

2. Cut rarely to preserve the ‘specialness’

3. Do something culturally rewarding to earn it morally

4. Noodles.

So i basically break these rules on like nearly a weekly basis? yes, i know, i’m a badass like that.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Movie 2:  “How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot! / The world forgetting, by the world forgot / Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! / Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d.”

Fate. Mistakes. Love and what have you. Not watching this is not even an option. ‘Nuff said.


Movie 3: Death and all his friends.

Weirdly morbid teenagers? Check.
Seemingly pointless emotional estrangement? Check.
Funeral gatecrashers? Check.
A ghost BFF? (who’s actually just a figment of your imagination. WHUT?) Check.

A dying girlfriend? Check. Double check. TRIPLE CHECK. (angsty because Mia Wasikowska has to die☹)

“There’s this kind of songbird that thinks it dies every time the sun goes down. In the morning when it wakes up, it’s totally shocked to still be alive, so it sings this really beautiful song. I’ve sung every morning since I’ve met you.” -Annabelle


This one’s my absolute favourite;)
