‘There is a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasnt because I thought I would be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love? And then you don’t have it. What if you like it? And lean on it? What if you shape your life around it? And then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is, death ends. This? It could go on forever…’ Meridith Grey – Grey’s Anatomy
The past few nights have been rainy, windy and cold. The perfect setting for thrillers and horror movies. I remember past winters, back when I was a teenager. Then, we used to watch such movies on such nights. Movies like, Urban Legend, I know what you did last summer, Stigmata, Exorcist, Halloween, Night of the Scarecrow, Scream, Bride of Chucky and the list goes on.
It was awesome then. I remember my brothers would have their stock of snacks (twisties and poppies!), and we would all sit in front of the TV or PC, with the light out. *Awesome*. It is a shame now that we do not have such family nights, or such movies really. 😦
And as a side note, I watched Exorcist with my cousin on a late rainy winter afternoon. We were under the covers, alone at home, and the PC screen far from us. The movie ended around 18hrs. A bad bad time to finish watching a movie like Exorcist. It just got dark and you have not showered, have not had dinner or anything yet. That movie really was scaring. The horrible head of that little girl turning 360 degrees. *Shivers*
Anyway, those would be unfogettable past winter thrills, In My World. 😉
I just love winter mornings. When the gentle sun rays seep through my curtains and light my room in a soft orange glow. 🙂 It makes me want to stay under my sheets and to bury my face in my pillow. Warmth! And when I do decide to get out of bed and open my door, the cool breeze caresses my skin and it just feels awesome. *-*
Sometimes when I wake up and it is raining, then I don’t get out of bed (except if it is a working day, when I HAVE to) and sleep some more. You only get that kind of sleep in winter, yeah. 😉
But I suppose that’s just winter in Port-Louis. Winter is the only time of the year where you can appreciate the sun’s heat in Port-Louis. Other places in Mauritius do have ‘cruel’ winter. Like Bois Cherie. It can get real cold there. People are actually covered from head to toe!
But like I’ve always said. I’m lucky to be in Port-Louis.
I’m still in bed.
And I’m greatly enjoying this Winter Morning In My World.
Morning Glory. Just finished watching this movie. It is not one super great movie. It is just perfect for a Sunday afternoon, when you have nothing better to do. I don’t do movie reviews, and I am not going to do one now. It is just that this movie touched me. It reminded me of something I didn’t even realise I have forgotten. So I am jotting this down here, lest I forget it again.
It does not matter what people say. It really does not.
I have got to believe in myself and my dreams, no matter how far-fetched or impossible it may seem.
To not give up, even in the bleakest hour.
To always give my best.
To be patient.
And even if I fail, at least I know that I tried.
This feels good. Positive energy. 😉
