Day 15 - The Film That Depicts Your Life
I always feel very self conscious when saying that some movie or comic or song accurately describes my life. You’ll always get the comments “yeah, you and every other arty teen girl” or “I don’t know what crack you’ve been smoking, but that’s as opposite to your life as you can possibly get”. I often wobble on a very fine line between reality and fiction as it is, so sometimes, even just subconsciously, I try to make my existence like that of my favorite movie or comic.
Any way, the movie I choose is Ghost World, so you can understand the “you and every other uncertain teen” comment. But I guess, that’s what makes things like this so successful, how relatable it is to it’s target audience and crap like that.
But seriously, now more then ever, I feel my life is treading the path of Enid’s. I’m finishing highschool, I don’t have any idea what I’m going to do, and I’m trying desperately to cling onto that one person, but the continuous current of change is washing everything familiar downstream. I’m trying desperately to swim upstream, clinging to those few familiar things, but have you ever tried swimming against a current with your hands full?
One thing I do have going for me though, is that it appears I function better in social situations then Enid. So while I’m being swept down stream, at least people will like me.
