The War is won! Believe it!

I don’t know how many readers of my Blog are aware of this. I don’t get that excited at the New Year, New Year. I know it’s a New Year in terms of a new calendar year. Too me though, I feel like a “new year” really begins on our birthday.

I had the weirdest experience on the bus today going to work and I think it has a lot to do with this belief of mine. I am learning to drive at the moment, so for the time being I am still travelling by bus and may continue to do after. I don’t mind the bus really, especially when the weather is nice. That’s for another day though.

As I coming to work I was listening to Thirty Second to Mars “This is War”. Now I don’t know if you know this reader, I have a video clip for every single song on my iPod, that is not the original video clip. So there I am on the bus, thinking of the video clip I had thought to this song. When it gets to certain lyrics of the song:

I do believe in the light, raise your hands up to the sky
The fight is done, the war is won, lift your hands towards the sun
Towards the sun, (it’s the moment of truth and the moment to lie
It’s the moment to live and the moment to die, the moment to fight)
Towards the sun,
Towards the sun, (it’s the moment of truth and the moment to lie
It’s the moment to live and the moment to die, the moment to fight)
The war is won (to fight, to fight, to fight, to fight)

I nearly start blubbering like a baby on the bus, luckily I had to get off just as it was starting.

I think it had to do, before I left for work this morning. I had had being having a conversation where I admitted that no matter what my ex-friends says about me, no matter what people who have a problem with and wont talk to me. No matter what they say, no matter how long they stay friends with each other for. I genuinely believe I AM, and will always, be the better friend.

I am not miserable when my friends are happy, I am miserable when they are, it disturbs me to know “friends” are only when happy when I’m miserable. If I hear something about someone I don’t think rings true, I will ASK that person. I don’t gossip behind their backs and tag them in passive aggressive memes with no actual “burn”, because the gossip isn’t true, and I don’t just ignore them. I don’t just gossip and NEVER ask the actual person they’re talking about. We are not in High School anymore. I will ask.

There is no fight, there is no War, because I am better. I am the better person and I BELIEVE that now.

That’s the difference…I actually do BELIEVE that I am the better person.

The End.

Civil War

One of my “birthday presents” over the weekend was to see Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War“.

Now I am going to start this off with saying that this will not have any spoilers in it. Even though there was a character in it that I thought hadn’t been mentioned in any of the other trailers, apparently they were. I had to rewatch the trailers and, yes, they were there but extremely briefly. I must have been literally blinking at the times this character was shown. Because of this though I am not going to talk about this character, just in case you missed the character as well.

I am going to start off with saying that I have actually never watched any of the other Captain America movies…Yes, I know it’s shocking and I was worried that I would have no idea what was going on. It wasn’t too bad though and I think this was something to do with it was a Avenger movie really, with just a really strong story focus on Captain America and more of his past. I honestly also believe that they kept Thor and the Hulk out of this one because it would then make it an Avengers movies. If they keep at least a couple of them out, then it’s not officially an Avengers movie?

It is a great movie, I don’t think we would have expected anything less. Captain America vs Iron Man…It’ll be interesting to see whose side viewers will take. I know I came out liking a totally different character to the one I liked before. Do be prepared for a lot of country and place switching though…One moment they’re in London, the next they’re in Switzerland or something.

Apart from that it was a really good movie, good explanation of how the Captain and Iron Man come to really hash it out. Some good motivation of future possible characters demise? There is also a lot more one-on-one fighting between the heroes rather than involving and destroying a whole city. Which is also a theme throughout the movie, the catalyst if you will for the whole set-up.

Spider”man”…Oh my goodness! He was fantastic! Much MUCH more likeable and much more realistic to believe that he’s a teenager rather than some moody 30 year old playing him. Much more innocence. I might actually go see his Spiderman movies.

4 out of 5 books…The constant switching of places around the world made me not able to settle in and get involve.

ANZAC Day <3 Lest We Forget

ANZAC

Lest We Forget…So that we can live

Today is Australia and New Zealand day of remembering and respecting. ANZAC Day is our day to honour and remember solider present and past from all the War of which we participated and those soldiers who died, so we cold be free. The date of the 25th of April commemorates the anniversary when Australia and New Zealand both were apart of the first campaign that led to major casualties for both countries.

AnzacDayRemember

For most people it’s a pretty emotional day, as I am sure that every country around the world experiences the same kind of feelings when they commemorate their soldiers. The feelings I feel, the appreciation for what these young men and women did for us, the freedom they gave to us. I try to hold onto that feeling for as long as possible. I tend to find during the next few weeks after ANZAC Day, I do things, stay off of social media things and get a lot more proactive.

What do feelings do you all have? Do you find yourself doing a lot more “proactive things” after you celebrate your soldiers?

Remembrance Day

Today on the 11th of November Australians everywhere will be taking a minutes silence at 11am. As on the  11th of November 1918 the guns fell silent on the Western front fell quiet after fours years of warfare.

The 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.

Dracula Untold

*Possible Spoilers!* I did not have anything to do with the creation of the movie, I am just purely writing some observations*.

Check out more here at the imdb page: Dracula Untold – IMDB

I finally got to see this movie and I really loved it! Dracula Untold is based on the story of Dracula. Except the difference is here it shows how “Dracula” become the monster. Something that I previously had no idea about, I had always heard about what happened with Dracula after the fact. I knew bits and pieces, I knew that the moment that pushed him over the edge was the death of his wife.

Without giving too much away, I really enjoyed this movie. It was one of those movies though that seemed to go quickly through one part and slowly through another without really a specific reason why they seemed too focused on one part. For example, where Luke Evans actually turns into Dracula I felt that it went far too fast for such a pivotal part. I felt like it was a movie that could have done better off it had been longer. Maybe not an epic movie, but it definitely needed to be longer than it was.

The acting was awesome, I have had such a crush on Luke Evans ever since I saw him “The Three Musketeers 2011“. I think he has an air of old Hollywood about him. Dominic Cooper (think Mama Mia, Captain America) plays his enemy, and plays the bad guy extremely well. You completely don’t like him and have no sympathy for him, but his last scene was another part that I felt needed to be more spectacular.

Expect to be intrigued in this movie, I wouldn’t say that it will blow your mind. You will be interested though, you won’t notice the time that has gone past.
