“Life is pain. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” ~ The Princess Bride
I missed watching a good TV show. I really did! With all the crap that is on TV right now, no wonder we only keep the cable for the Discovery and cartoon channels.
I am very grateful for people bringing up old TV shows to the attention of the world, because this is how I found “Boy Meets World”.
Boy Meets World is a TV show that started in 1993 and ended in 2000. It was never aired on the Romanian cable (which is a pity). I started watching the series about 2-3 months ago (I will be forever grateful to the Internet). It has 7 seasons per total and I am currently at the 5th season. I don’t want it to end.
It’s about a weird kid going through school and life, with funny situations and with awesome life lessons. This one is just a small example of what people today are missing.
Why can’t they make shows like this one anymore? Seriously, what happened to television. Especially sitcoms like this one. Why did they stop making them?
Besides enjoying this series, I also feel in love with the actors. Never heard of them before, but now I can recognize them without any problems. They are serious actors and such awesome role models, both in character (in Boy Meets World) and in real life. My favorite by far is Topanga Lawrence played by Danielle Fishel. She’s everything that today’s society tell us not to be, and yet she still is a beautiful woman.
I also loved the fashion of that time, with large sweaters, lots of layers and just the lack of technology, especially of cellphones. Whenever I watch a new episode I get a trip down the memory lane, back to my very fun and weird teenage years.
I now understand why people get depressed when an awesome show ends. I still have 2 more seasons, what will I do after that? I need to find more awesome shows like this one.
This was a nice weekend. It might’ve been gloomy, I might’ve been lazy but it was a nice weekend altogether. Not even the constant rain could dampen the mood. In fact it was awesome that it rained, we cuddled in bed with Marlanu’ while we watched TV.
We had pizza, went to the park, went out with family and for the first time ever we saw 2 movies in a roll at the mall. We saw 2 Guns and Riddick 2. The movies were great and all, but I am starting to hate going to the mall to watch a movie. There is always someone that hits my seat, or multiple people speaking on their phone or even speaking in general.
It’s annoying and I feel like going Hulk on them. I can dream, can I?
Still, it was funny. I also noticed that I was the only one there that didn’t gave a rats ass about appearance. There was me: jeans, sneakers, a baggy sweater and no make-up and then there was everyone else. Sometimes I think I pay to much attention to this, but its weird being the only one with a fresh face and not dressed to impress. I even get crazy ideas like I am a slob and that’s why I’m the only one. I can’t be the only one, can I?
Oh well, I will live.
This was an awesome weekend, and something tells me that it will be a while till we repeat the experience.
3 more months and that’s it, the year will be over. What have I’ve been doing with my time?
This year flew by and I only have a few memorable moments. It seems that I’ve been slacking a lot this year. I dunno, I don’t feel like anything got done. It might be me or it might be the weather. Still, I was looking in the old records of my life and it felt like I got more done and went places.
This year, I can honestly say that I kinda blew half of what I had planned for myself. But, there are still 3 more months. Can I catch up?
I dunno, but I miss those old days when things where new to me. Darn you routine for ruining my youth. I also need to let Tumblr alone for a while.
I got feelings watching this movie. It’s amazing how many memories a simple Anime can bring back.
I missed Dragon Ball, that’s a fact. I’m very happy they released a new movie this year but my God it was so tame compared with the original series. No kinky jokes, no Bulma nudity, Vegeta was transformed into a wuss, Goku into an “idiot who only thinks about fighting” and the rest of the characters were there just as a background.
Then again its hard to make a good Dragon Ball movie since the fights take most of he screen time. As Johnny said, in this movie the first part is about Bills (The God of Destruction) eating different things while thinking about Super Saiyan God and the second part has the fight between Goku and Bills.
Still, it wasn’t bad.
It a was a good trip down the memory lane. The graphics were cool, but I seriously had a problem with Goku’s pink hair. Why pink? Why?
Oh well, at least the gave Vegeta and Bulma more importance. Yet, it didn’t feel like Vegeta and Bulma. I mean if Vegeta wanted to slap Goku, he would slap him. He wouldn’t command Bulma to slap him, no matter how scary she may be to Goku.
I’m sorry, I can’t help it. I love so much the original DB and DBZ, that anything after that kinda irritates me. Its fun to watch the new movies and all, then the inner geek in me comes out and starts complaining.
Don’t mind me, just watch and enjoy the movie.
It’s Autumn and I already have a cold. Its not that I wasn’t prepared for the chilly weather, its more that I wasn’t prepared for my colleagues. They really love me and they enjoy sharing anything with me, from food, cute things to a flu.
And that’s how I got a cold.
I can’t complain. I mean I got some really cute stuff yesterday from my colleagues. It was like a mini Christmas. Really made my day a lot easier at work.
This is a food container from Ikea. Not that functional, but cute. I mean, besides a sandwich or fruits, I cannot put real food in it. It might spill and it will make a mess. Still, its something I wanted and Ikea is in the other part of town; it takes around 1 hour to get there during a normal day. I’m glad someone bought it for me.
I wanted a wallet for a while, since my wallet ended up with my mother in law (long story). But I am not prepared to spend so much money on a wallet. After all I am on poor mode for almost 3 weeks. I’m trying to save money not spend it. So, I got a mini pouch from one of my favorite friends at work. It’s perfect as a wallet for me.
Its not like I will have lots of money with me, more like work card, metro card, ID and taxi vouchers. I was really happy when I got this. I don’t know if she read my mind or noticed the plastic bag I had as a replacement. Yup, I’m that cheap. Then again, we (me and Johnny) are trying to make a major step and it takes a lot of preparation and responsibility.
We are trying to save for our own place. So, for use to avoid paying our entire life for a small apartment we decided to save money and pay one big chunk of it in one go. Growing up sucks in these times. Its easier being a kid, because parents now will do anything for their kids and they spoil them rotten.
Still, it will be fun, I want to see how far can we go.
I knew it was a bad idea but I still went ahead with it. The need for a change in the daily routine overcame my need to stay away from certain people.
I can’t complain. I found some good motivation, I played card games, took a few photos and just enjoyed the cold Autumn weather at the country side.
When I go on vacation, even on a mini vacation, I only want a good bed, good food and nice company. I don’t care about the rest as long as those 3 are on the list. This time I only got the first two. I do think I was a bit harsh after all people do get sick all the time, but this is the first time I saw someone getting sick as soon as work was involved.
I think it will take a while before we will go back there. I really need to calm down before seeing that person again.
.. at 3AM while waiting for my shift to end.
No, I wasn’t slacking on the job. There are times when there’s nothing to do. So, to avoid falling asleep you need to do something. I chose to practice my Hiragana writing. I don’t know how much will stick to me but its better than nothing.
I swear its not on purpose. No matter how much I sleep, I still wake up tired and nothing gets done.
I’m guessing the night shift tiredness is catching up on me. 3 more weeks on this schedule and then we shall see if it gets better or if it gets worse.
Oh well, I might as well move my ass and do some cleaning if I’m complaining about not doing anything. Here’s a nice picture from the office
When Marlanu’ wants to be left alone he makes it very clear. Apparently he didn’t want his picture taken.
