I'm going to NASA this afternoon for some presentations, so hopefully I won't be stuck in the heat.
Because of its originality, it's hard to describe or compare it to other anime titles. "Speed Grapher" is similar to "Evangelion" in that it deals with the philosophy of human mind and desire and is deeply enriched. I thought of "Elfen Lied" in some instances, but "Speed Grapher" is way beyond that league. It's similar to "Silent Hill" (the video game/movie) in the perfection of the background music. Its clean graphics are in the realm of "Last Exile's" awesome artist, Range Murata. In all, this title can stand on its own. "Speed Grapher" is rated TV-MA (mature). This is definitely not for kids or the light-hearted or the occasional anime fan. This is definitely for you hard-core anime fans. I tried to get the import version, but was unsuccessful, so I'm anxiously awaiting for Volume 2.
I'm trying to figure out ways to keep my spirit of determination up, get my hypothalamus to work in my favor. Release those hormones and give me that good, happy feeling. Maybe little rewards might work. But with me giving the rewards, it's probably unlikely that they'll suffice. What's going to stop me from getting it (other than okane), if I really want it? I guess, in truth, the joy of going to Med School and becoming a doctor to help others is reason enough to strive.
Onegai tasukete kami-sama! Ganbatte!
Believing in something gives humans the drive to improve themselves, to provide the stamina needed to continue the race. In this case, it seems to be better to be a hypocrite. So long as you continue to push and "succeed" in life, while at the same time, remembering the truth. And for those that are completely ignorant and are devoid of the truth, may you be showered with pseudo-bliss-full days.
I'm watching "School Rumble" right now. Usually not my type of anime, but it's really starting to get a hold on me. I don't think it'll end the way I want it to, but I hope to be pleasantly surprised.
Alright! That's enough of a break. Gotta get back to work...apparently for me, Friday is always my busiest day.
But how can all of us be wrong? Doesn't majority always represent the truth? Majority, in truth (chuckles in irony), is not a representation of the truth. Instead, it is a representation of what most have agreed to agree on. If you disagree, then you'd agree that if 90% of the world said that the word "truth" contains six letters, then it must be true. Right?
Confusion -- A state in that which is not normal. Confusion is the state of life. Laugh at those who believe they are normal, or who snicker at those who they see aren't normal. We're all abnormal, weird, if you will, and those who refuse it will remain lost or can dwell in their sea of false happiness or content.
Two nights ago, I suddenly woke up around 4:30 a.m. with some ideas for my Medical School Essay. For fear that I'd forget it when I wake again, I crawled out of bed and looked for some paper and a pen or pencil. I ended up writing incomplete sentences and some notes for a good 20 minutes. It seems good, I just hope it'll be enough to push my application to the top of the pile. Ganbatte-nee Rei-chan!
