...LiFe iS nOt LiKe tHe mOviEs...
It's a very rare occasion for me to just sit during the day and watch a movie. It feels so wasteful to me because I'm always so busy and I'm never really caught up with work. So...because I've worked really, REALLY hard for the past week, I decided to give myself the luxury of climbing under my favorite quilt, on my bed, on a rainy Saturday afternoon to watch a movie. I'm not a super picky person when it comes to movies. If they entertain me in any way...I like them. I watched a romantic comedy and when it was over, my house was dark and quiet and I started to think about life and how different real life is from life in the movies.
In real life, friendships break up...and many times they can't be fixed. In real life, chemistry and love aren't always enough to make another person want you as much as you want them. In real life, cheaters win...and bullies never get beat up and left to run home crying. In real life, mean girls grow up to be mean women. In real life, some crushes are never confessed. In real life, kisses in the pouring rain never happen, and if they did...your hair would look crazy and your makeup would smear. In real life, people that are deserving and talented sometimes never see true success because they never catch their one big break. In real life, there is no perfect soundtrack playing in the background. Real life is just that. It's real...and many times, it's confusing and sometimes it's hard.
