So, you know how everyone thinks that the Top is his totem, but in the beginning he mentions that it’s actually Mal’s? Well, you see, if it’s not his totem, then it’s not going to properly work for him. Cobb’s totem is his WEDDING RING. Whenever he’s dreaming, he has a wedding ring on because, as he says, in his dreams, they’re still together. In reality, he’s not wearing a ring. During the last scene of the movie? He’s not wearing a ring. BAM, REALITY.
I hope you find what you (may not even know you) are looking for. :) (It’s getting very repetitive of me na, I know, but I am in full support of this ‘exile’ adventure. :D
First thing that popped into my head is a title of a coming of age, indie hipster movie starring Michael Cera and my conveniently placed love interest will be played by Kat Dennings called: A.g.’s Exile Adventure
Kidding aside, I know I’ll find whatever it is I am looking for and I am wholeheartedly thankful for the people (like you!) who support me and despite the distance, I know that is there when I need help :)
I am starting to see why my parents sent me here...
I just need to let this out and rant. Read at your own pleasure.
I woke up 3AM today with my face dry as hell, my lips painfully chapped, and jet lagged as fuck.
Yesterday’s walk around downtown (Michigan Ave.) was very unproductive. The street hasn’t provided me with anything yet.
The main reason I am here is to study. Since most community colleges already started the summer semester, I have to check out the Universities. Thing is, universities are expensive as hell, even if I only plan to take one class.
I know why my parents sent me here despite the cost and inconvenience which is to make me self reliant.
I had so many niceties in my life back home—- All of them are missing here. America maybe the land of Milk and Honey but there is something that is not amusing me here. Everything is HUGE and all but seeing that almost every block has a closed down property and office spaces for rent is just too darn depressing.
I also notice People smile because they need too, not because they are genuinely happy.
I may be reading too much into this or I maybe getting cynical because all my plans are going awry but I’ll just try to enjoy the coming months as much as I can.
I will try to get into a school, I will get that Leica, and when I get back— I’ll be a better man.
The Number of Americans. I mean, so many of them!!! Kidding aside, everyone is so intense and in a rush. No one seems to take things slow and chill. I always believed that slow is smooth and smooth is fast, but everyone is rushing.
