She stole the world by stealth,

but ran away from herself.

Trying to find a way home,

she truly is alone.

 

The King’s Speech (Movie Review) March 29, 2011

Filed under: Movies — Jessica @ 5:50 pm

I’m a huge fan of movies. So naturally, seeing at how this one took home many Academy Awards, I just had to see it. I know it’s rated R, but only for language (very funny language at that, too). I must say, Colin Firth did the best job in playing a stammerer, and Geoffrey Rush was so funny as the speech doctor, and I just always love Helena Bonham Carter, so the actors were great in this movie.

But there’s more to it. Surely, you know this movie has more to do with a man with a stammer. It’s about overcoming fear, it’s about the value of friendship, about what one could do for love, it’s about coming out, it’s about having a voice.

The screenplay, by David Seidler, is an inspiration for all. I think when I grow up, I’d like to write screenplays or be a director for movies.

I think this is the reason why The King’s Speech nabbed so many awards, instead of Inception, or True Grit, because the movies that are real, the ones that touch your heart, the ones that you know are true, tend to make a bigger impact on you than one that is supernatural or a Sci-fi thriller.

This is Lucky, and that’s all I have to say about The King’s Speech.

HOLA! BONJOUR!

Hey guys, sorry I’ve been gone so long. (And I don’t even have WHAP anymore). Well, I guess my best answer is: Math. I’ve been super busy with it. But I PROMISE I will try and keep up with my blog and my other stuff at the same time…. 🙂

 

 

My lesson on: Reflections, Musings, Interpretations December 20, 2010

Filed under: Poetry — Jessica @ 2:54 am

I always found it mindboggling…

how reflections never show what you really look like, but show the reverse image…

so I always wondered…

who am I and what exactly do I look like?

Even when I muse about it…

did you know, musings, are reflections?

Is anything in this world ever real?

But do we look reality in the eye, or just brush its skin?

My friend,

it depends on your interpretation.

So believe what you want to believe.

Believe it’s real,

because it’s the closest thing you have to it being…real?

 

My lesson on: Dreaming, Visions, and Reveries December 6, 2010

Filed under: Poetry — Jessica @ 2:57 am

What I’ve learned,

after what I’ve been through,

is that dreaming,

is a fantasy, a paradise, a nightmare, or an empty void,

is that visions,

do not show your future, but hold painful flashbacks of the past,

is that reveries,

are empty dreams and musings without meaning.

But,

there is always a will, to make a way,

and

dreams,

create the pavement for your road,

visions,

help you keep going and to not look back,

and that to make

reveries

real,

you must keep chasing those pavements, and never look back.

So what I’m saying is, MAKE YOUR DREAMS REAL, DON’T SIT AROUND HOPING IT WILL COME TRUE

Happy Holidays,

Lucky

 

Hub of a Pot November 11, 2010

Filed under: Poetry — Jessica @ 5:55 pm

I feel like

the hub of a pot.

Hollow inside

Elegant outside.

I see the world only through a small opening.

Colors, in black and white.

Are they worthy enough to be a color?

My life,

in black-and-white

 

Rain…

Filed under: Poetry — Jessica @ 5:53 pm

I breathe out

A sigh of relief

Today, the first sparkles of rain

plops down

On my head

On my arm

On the sidewalk.

I smile.

The Sun is still out.

It’s nice to see,

Zeus yielding to Apollo

———– ———— ————

Rain…

Burns my skin

Purifies my soul

spills with my tears

Takes me out dancing

gets my mouth to open up and sing

Pulls my head back laughing.

*                       *                        *

Rain….

are the splatters of paint on the blank canvas of the world

is my elegant consort

is a timer

It’s time to go inside

Is it?

Rain….

is my dance

my song

my friend.

————— ——————– ————-

At last, Zeus clears the way

for Apollo.

I smile.

 

Haikus: The Five Senses November 10, 2010

Filed under: Poetry — Jessica @ 2:12 am

Sound

Water bubbles up

Beaks around us chirp soundly

Trees sway to their song.

Do not fret because

Without this music, we would

drown, in loneliness.

 

Textures

Cold water burns my

skin. As mud seeps through my toes,

I feel, full of peace.

 

Smells:

The whiff of winter

Cinnamon and Lavendar

Christmas approaches

 

Tastes

The sourness stings

like a bee. Yet it dances

on my tongue. Lemon.

 

Sight

Moon howls at the sky

Stars glitter, sprinkling me

Sky is black; sleeping.

 

 

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF October 29, 2010

Filed under: Charities — Jessica @ 8:09 pm

Halloween is coming up! And not only do you get to stuff your face with endless sugar, you have the chance to help other kids all over the world.

UNICEF does a trick-or-treat fundraiser every year, and you can get a little orange box like this –> 

On the back, it tells you how much each donation can help.

Did you know…

$.07 provides 50 kids with safe water for a day

$2 buys 1 liter of therapeutic milk

$19 buys 3 mosquito nets to protect kids from malaria

$257 provides an emergency classroom kit for 40 kids

#500 buys a water pump for a whole community

~ Learn more at trickortreatforunicef.org

Don’t be a stickler and think if you don’t do this, someone else will, because you don’t know that, and if we all thought that way, we would never make a difference. You can also donate online from the website above.

If you can, donate a penny, nickel, or dime! Every cent counts, because every kid counts!

 

Inception September 26, 2010

Filed under: Movies,Uncategorized — Jessica @ 12:54 pm

I watched the movie, Inception, a loooong time ago, so I don’t know why I decided to talk about it now. Anyway, I was talking about it with some friends yesterday, so I thought it would be fun to let you guys know the characters.

But first, the plot:

This is the story of Don Cobb, who runs around with Arthur doing illegal jobs like stealing ideas out of someone’s memory/dream. Until one day, he comes across a man who wants him to do Inception (planting an idea in the mind). The man promises Cobb after this job, he can go home to his kids, (who he had to leave). Can Cobb and his crew accomplish the impossible?

Characters:

Don Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio, Main Character)-

He’s a haunted man because he thinks he murdered his wife. So every time he’s on a “dream mission”, he keeps dreaming her up, even though she isn’t really there.

Arthur (Jordon Gordon-levitt, Dobb’s second in command)-

He’s the guy who makes sure everything is set in place for everything, kind of like a watch dog (in my opinion).

Ariadne (Ellen Page, a college girl)-

She is a new character they recruited. She is their…dream setter. She dreams up the setting, locations, details, etc., so Cobb can put fill it with his subconscious.

Eames (Tom Hardy, guy they needed to help carry out Inception)-

He’s part of Cobb’s crew they recruited.

Saito (Ken Watanabe, the asian man who gives Cobb the mission of Inception)-

There are a lot more characters, but I’ll just give you a few to keep you on your toes. This really is a great movie, so go watch it!
