Genre: Classics Book Marathon

books

And we are back!!!

As seen from the title, I am going on a classic book reading marathon. I have thirty something books minus Agatha Christie books, I have on my shelf. I am slightly those types of books. And here me, telling you what I define a classic book to be.

A classic book defined for me would a book written in the ancient times until 1980s. Sorry Harry Potter, you are not a classic in my books. Bye.. 🙂

I began to be obsessed with book genre of classics after taking Literature in High School. Thank Mrs. Bailey. Thank you.

There are rules, I plan on keeping while doing reading:

I am not allowed to quit reading a book. I must finish it fully. I can’t quit even if the story is slow, full of language and romance.

I have to rate the story and review it even if its just a sentence or two.

Here are all the books minus Agatha Christie, I plan on reading. There is no order in which I am reading them.

Dear Hollywood, get some new ideas. Sincerely everyone

lifestyle

Dear Hollywood, get some original ideas. Stop redoing the old movies. Midway, stop taking history and mixing it into your own way. Stop using musicals and turning them to movies. *coughs* Cats… yeah, I know what the original is, yeah, I know I am old.

Lets take Endgame Marvel. Instead of ending a franchise with that movie. Lets make Black Widow, all though the actress did say in the first making of Avengers, she didn’t want a movie but of course, we want more money. Lets add some marvel TV shows have more money. Like they don’t have enough money already.

So, we have no good ideas, so use death as entertainment. Its perfectly fine to use triggering topics like suicide, self harm, and depression. I know Netflix is not Hollywood but they make movies and for me anyone who makes money. Or I can use Me Before You since it was made by Hollywood. To summarize the movie: A romance between a caregiver and disabled man. Then at the end of story, the caregiver supports the disable man committing suicide. What? This love, people say. I am so confused. Then when you see on the news that a girlfriend is committed a crime when she pushes her boyfriend to commit suicide. I know not the same thing but sort of is. Its not realistic. And how is a great movie, hmm?

And then Netflix drama, I have. 15 Reasons Why…. After it aired, I heard on the news that teen girls were committed suicide and only later did the mourning parents find out its from this show.. And this show is great, how? Celebrities applauded it while kids are killing themselves. Like, am I the only one noticing that?

Then lets you get to the some way deeper.. toxic relationships…. And the movie, I am about mention is a rated R movie and no, I have never seen it and no I don’t plan on doing. The reasons I know of this movie is every since the movies came out, ads of it kept opening everywhere for it, TV commercials, or Pandora/YouTube/Spotify ads. I had to cautious when my siblings around making sure it was muted when the ad would show up. Fifty Shades of Grey. Summary basically: girl met rich boy, he tortures her through the movie, she thinks it love, they get married, and then he gets killed. I don’t get it. People love it. Its R movie, yes, but people loved it. But when in the news, people abuse other people, its a bad thing. And this is looked upon with great entertainment. Yeah.. get a better perspective Hollywood.

Even as a Christian, I know some people are sick of Hollywood’s ideas and perspective of things.

Don’t remake old movies, when you have no movie ideas. Don’t treat something dangerous as entertainment. Start asking the public what they would like for a movie. Maybe make book adaptions, people want to actually see.

Dear Hollywood, make get new ideas,

Sincerely,

Everyone!!!

GOD VS FEELINGS

lifestyle

Welcome, owlnerds. This message are for you and all the people. If you do follow me, I wouldn’t be surprised if you unfollowed or unsubscribed but the truth must be shown.

Something today, the world struggles with feelings. We base everything on feelings. We don’t think of the most important things. If something doesn’t sit right with ourselves we flash hate at them. Feelings the reason our society has scrapped the word gender. Why we have to watch our tongue with pronouns? Oh, no someone will be offended like it has been happening before this. No, way? *rolls my eyes* It’s stupid. Just stupid even corporations are practicing the use of pronouns. Really? Why? Today I feel like a man. Oh, I am a woman today. I am genderless, excuse me. Your life is not based on your feelings and thoughts. I am sorry to tell you that but it’s true. 

Even your birth certificate didn’t choose your gender. Wow. You did it. Your feelings told to ignore them. This thing, you have where feelings are more important is called sin.  Temptations push against your conscience and tell you are free to do whatever you want. 

Which is more important God or Feelings? God doesn’t say your feelings should guide your life. No, My Word should. 

Your feelings just want to be heard that is why people are being pressured to things to fit the crowds. This is why we think we fall in “love” with the same gender. This is why we kill babies. This is why people die. Feelings are not going to save the world. 

God is. If only you would notice Him. You know He chooses to create you. He could have not to put you in existence. But He chooses to do so because of the love of His Son. God is real and everlasting but feelings disappear. Feelings lead to temptations and temptations lead to sin. 

What is more important you or God? Did you not read that ME ME ME game in life gets you nowhere? 

But God first, read His Word, Follow Christ. Repent your sin leads you more to Him and eternal life. 

Which would you choose? 

Emotions

writing

Another poetry post. I honestly don’t care if any of you decide to unsubscribe. I am clueless what do with this blog. I feel like I failed by not doing weekly posts like I promised from the beginning.

So without further ado, here goes nothing.

I think the hardest thing to do is to breathe

To cry

To let your emotions break free

But it so easy to bury them

To pretend everything is ok

To look as though everything is under control

To hid it under your skin

When all you want do is scream

Hit a wall

Or maybe its this year

Where I release everything

That shatters my mirror

Hurts me worse than bruises

Emotions or overreacting

Like people will say?

I am just overreacting?

Or I losing myself completely?

Who knows anymore?

The fear now is if I will ever return to normal.

If normal is the new thing

Or will have this thing

Digging at me

My whole life

Destroy all the relationships

I hold dearly

Or will it ruin a new relationship

I come across.

Who knows anymore?

Thanks for reading.. maybe next week I will have a more uplifting post.. Maybe?
