Turn the bells

After watching The King’s Speech, I kept thinking it’s amazing how you can make a great movie out of such an absurd and realistically uninteresting subject. Colin Firth’s acting keeps blowing me away (I became quite fond of him after having seen A Single Man, although most people would know him thanks to Bridget Jones’ Diary), but what truly amazed me was Helena Bonham Carter’s transformation. Who would’ve thought that that same woman played in Fight Club or Harry Potter?

Today was my birthday. I’ve finally made it to the twenties. I don’t feel old, and I don’t feel young either… to be honest, I don’t know what I’m feeling, really. People always say that these will be the best years of my life and that I should make the most of it, but how can I when I don’t even get the opportunity to do 10% of all the things that I really want to do? Especially when I’m so used to failure that I just end up laughing at the end of a bad day – but that doesn’t count, right?

And maybe since I turned 20 today, I needed to write something, you know, to comemorate this joyful and blessed event. I ate sushi and cake today. I took a walk and enjoyed the beautiful, soft and breezy weather. I spent a regular day, a happy day. And now, I’m feeling all hollow inside.

Tell me, is there something wrong with me?
