I woke up this morning, perky and full of energy. Woot woot!! I got up, sneaked a peek at my phone's clock and went outside the room to have breakfast. After that, I checked my Twitter, Facebook and email. The cleaning bug bit me so I cleaned my room. Only my room. Haha!
Then afternoon came.
I spent a good few minutes staring at the computer screen, not knowing what to do. Watched some videos on YouTube. Liked and shared some articles on Facebook. Tweeted a few more. Got into a lively Twitter conversation with some Twitter buddies. Then, again.. went back to staring at the screen. "Boring Sturday. Pfft!"
So. I decided to watch a movie. Ikr. No surprise. That's what I do during these kind of days. Sometimes, I'd go out and take my dogs for a walk.. but it was scorching HOT outside. If I go outside, I'd melt! Like ice cream!
Okay. I'm exaggerating.
I chose to watch the movie trilogy - The Lord of the Rings. I'm sure you all have heard of it. If you haven't, then you should go to a bookstore and buy the books, or to a movie shop and buy the DVDs. It's an adventure you shouldn't miss. "My precious...."
Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.”
