this is adorable.
someone was excited for his new xbox one.
and now the never ending battle to turn the damn video game off begins.
Yi Yi (Edward Yang, 2000)
I paused this movie frequently because I didn’t want it to end too soon, turning a three hour movie into a five hour movie. Even then I wanted it to continue.
this movie was long, no lie, but it was also really damn good.
and I loved the son the most.
"I first learned that I was crippled when I was eight. We played a game in the yard where we would race and do somersaults. When even the youngest kids beat me, I knew I had a problem. Then when it was time to go to school, I was the only one who couldn’t go, because it was a very far walk."
"Do you remember the saddest moment of your life?"
"When I turned twenty, I had this moment where I realized that I hadn’t been able to get any education. And suddenly I knew that I’d probably never have a family."
this story breaks my heart.
here’s a selfie and a pic of the adorable earrings that were gifted to me last week, unfortunately it seems one of them broke off at the post so at least I have this to look at and feel sad.
long week at work so that means only two workouts this week, but I’m planning to hit up the gym tonight if I can move the boy off the couch.
also, apparently you can get a chemical burn from icy hot.. who knew?! well, I guess the boy does as he now has one. ouchie.
off to buy groceries.. adulting done right.
