So finally i had finished the first semester of second year of uni. Before the summer school start, i will have 3 weeks of break, which i think it’s plenty and long enough for me. First has gone pass…what did i do..really not much..working..cooking..and just relaxing i suppose. The second week, which is this week, I went to see “The Hunger Game: Catching Fire”. It’s pretty much the same structure and similar storyline as the first one. It is still a pretty well film and does grab your attention the whole time even tho it’s a 2 and half hour movie. Sometime i felt like i was just siting there and wait to find out who is she going to kill… which the ending was very unexpected i suppose. Not much background music in this movie, I think it uses the actors’ facial expression to bring out the emotion instead of letting the background music to do that job. So by doing that, i think it makes the whole movie heavier and deeper for people to understand it. Not like it’s hard to understand the story..but just different than most action movie that usually focus on the music to bring out the excitement. So far not much plan for this week..cause will have to keep looking for new place to live, and working from friday and saturday. umm Just trying to keep myself organise as much as possible i guess.
Anyways, I gonna try to write and learn some flower here in my blog as much as possible. So next time when the customer at Eden Garden ask me about the flower, they won’t get super snobby and make me feel like a total idiot. If i can answer their question, i will be like “in your face ~ take that !” lol
Poinsettia is tropical plants and can be put indoor near the sunny window (not cold shadow place). It will last year if you take care carefully. It needs to be fertiliser during the winter and spring. If you purchase in December, by the time of February that most the flowers will be fading. You cut the flower off and plant the whole poinsettia in the bigger pot (if necessary). Two months later, you continuing cut off all lateral shoots. Another few months later, the flower will blossom again. (Information 1 from HERE). Poinsettia also known as Euphorbia pulcherrima, it’s part of the spurge family. (Information 2 from HERE).
So this semester is almost finish. Two more weeks then i will officially finish this semester. I’m pretty much just study as much as possible (if i’m not being lazy) everyday. So far one subject i’m on the schedule, and from tomorrow i will start prepared for another subject..which I’m more afraid of this one…cause for me it’s a bit harder and i have pretty much no idea what’s the structure of that unit..so a bit lost…lol. Anyways, study most the day, but also watch a movie while i was having dinner. I think i watched 3 movies from last week to this week. The first one is so bad that i can’t even remember the name….I remember i didn’t even finish the movie..and i just deleted the movie from my computer.
The second movie i watched is called, “Generation Um…” I have no idea what’s the movie about before i watched it. Mostly because i saw Keanu Reeves is in this movie, so i was like, ‘ya i will give a shot’. It’s either this movie is too deep and too unique to understand, or it has to be too stupid and has no meaning in it at all. The whole movie is about the 3 main characters’ life in the same day. It’s very un-hollywood style of movie. The way of camera capture the angles, not much of background music, slow story line. For me…the whole me is like undecided…unknowing of what’s the next step….the drug ? or another sex ? or just Keanu walking around doing nothing all day ? Really really strange movie. Is it arty ? I think a little bit. When Keanu was recording with his video camera, the movie changed to that video camera screen which is all shaky and simple style. Not sure i like it….very simple style….!! In the end, it finally has a little more story for the conclusion. However..i’m not sure how to connect the dot with the whole film ? Smart people in school , when they graduate that they could be the dumpiest one ? Smart people could be very undecided with their life ? I really don’t know what this movie is trying to say…. O.O !!
The third movie i watched is called, “Standing Up”. I actually just found out this movie today and I was the trailer a little bit but i have no idea what’s the story. But the trailer just looks really interesting for me and made me want to watch this movie right away. So i finally got this movie just right before i start cooking my dinner, which i can actually watch it while was having dinner. OMG I love this movie so much!!!!!! The whole time i couldn’t move my eyes away for just one second. I even forgot about that i was actually eating dinner…i ended up really focus and being very emotional with this movie. The story line goes very quick and smooth. It could be a very arty movie like “Moonrise Kingdom”. But it didn’t , it’s a very realistic story that can actually happen in real life. I love how the story goes a bit unpredictable and especially the ending was half sad and half happy. As we all want a happy ending, but b/c the realistic of this movie, it doesn’t have a happy ending or a romantic love story. gosh i love it. We want to help, we all want to pull our hand out. But when we are in the comfort zone…we forgot about the other one ..the one who did everything to help us..the one who can actually survive without us..the one helped us away from the nightmare. Just like in this movie…. the boy is actually the mature and smart one..but then again..he knows the life will not go the way we wants. at the end of the movie, i found out this movie is actually basic from a book called “The Goats”. It makes me really want to read this book..want to find out more about the story. umm so this book and the last one in my last blog…will be the two books i want to buy for next year. lol. (If i can finish the 5 books i have right now).
Today i was also watching some short clips from sundance film festival , gosh so many ideas and creative just went throughout my brain. I can’t wait to finish my exams, so i can start putting those idea in my art and videos . so excited, hahaah.
One last thing , i just deleted about 800 friends from my Facebook…deleted those people i have been really uncomfortable for a long time, people who i really just don’t care..and people who i don’t even know who they are. Anyways, so now i feel much comfortable with my Facebook friends and post whatever i want to post. haha Took me 4 hours to deleted those friends…gosh…really shouldn’t get suck into Facebook in the beginning..lol.
