Roots

The first thing that came into my head is the song “Roots Before Branches,” and since I think that the idea behind it is pretty solid I think I’m going to roll with it. It’s really hard for it to be black and white though; I mean you have to grow and ‘branch out’ a lot before you can really feel whole and even still sometimes it’s not enough. But even still before you can ever take the big chances you need to be able to answer one big question, ‘Who are you’ and ‘Who do you want to be.’ Without those, you can’t really build a  foundation have any roots to ground you, I guess is what I am trying to say. A person can’t expand their horizons or grow in any sense really without knowing somewhat about who you are and what you want, both in the grand scheme of things and the more supposedly basic, every day.

I’m not just randomly spilling all this out either, I’m saying because I’ve felt and I’m truly learning to understand it. You need to explore and experience and work on yourself before you can make the decisions about the rest of your life or if you want lean on someone. If you don’t know who you are on a level that you actually understand yourself as a person, you so easily get lost. From personal experience, it feels pretty impossible to find that person again; I went to the rediscover and rebuild approach into growing my roots. I have to admit I’m scared to really start branching out again, I feel like I failed so epically last time that I’m terrified I might not be able to pick myself up next time. But despite that, I still want to do it because every day I feel more confident as a person and that confidence is what makes me want to find more and be more.

Image result for Snow White with the Red Hair posterSnow White with the Red Hair – Shirayuki is a kind girl with brilliant red hair; she lives in a small town in where she runs her herbal shop. That is she did until catching the eye of the ridiculous Prince of Tanbarun, Raji, who decides to make her his concubine. But Shirayuki isn’t one to easily give up her freedom, thus she decides to escape to the forest but not without leaving Raji the parting gift of her long red hair. After crossing the border she meets Zen Wistaria, the second prince of Clarines, and after various circumstances, Zen, along with two aides, rescue Shirayuki from Raji. Seeing Zen as a fateful encounter Shirayuki joins him and aides back to the Clarines where she begins a new journey in her life with new dreams, forging loyal friendships, encountering different enemies and best of all discovering new and true love.

The hook for me to start watching was Snow White in the title; I’m a total sucker for fairy tales and I usually enjoy the new takes on classics. The reason I kept watching and why I kept wanting more was because of the stories. Not only the love story between Zen and Shiryuki but the friendship and bonds, and achievement that drove them. Beyond great story lines, not to mention it is a visually beautiful anime, the characters all have their own ways of being portrayed as strong, loyal and special.

It may not be the Snow White story we grow up with but if you ask me it’s a wonderful love story all the same. There’s comedy and drama, romance and adventure, really if you are a fan of the action, fairy tale, love story type of plots than I have to say I would highly recommend this anime.

Related imageI think this may have been the most powerful episode in the series so far. Honestly though when I saw the promo for this episode I was presuming that it was going to absolutely ridiculous. The reason being that the promo was mainly about zombies and I am seriously not a fan of the brain eating, undead creatures. It’s not like I’m afraid of the fictional, disease ridden monsters that I think that they are really dumb.

But then I actually watched the episode and realized that the zombies were actually just a plot device to get the Legends to the real story. Jax and Amaya’s mission was really the profound one for, not just for this episode but in the Arrow-verse as a whole.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00

While writing my recommendation for this series I started getting off topic frequently while talking about the subjects of the show. It didn’t really work in that context but I still really wanted to talk about so here it goes, my opinions and all.

Plus the thing that they are fighting for is so much more than just equality, they are fighting against conflict. Beyond that, it starts to sort of explain not only what ‘no conflict’ means but also why it is so important. For me, I think it kind of added to my interest and understanding of conflict and peace in a way that resonated with me.

Solar Eclipse 

Today was a total solar eclipse and I watched start to finish, kind of. My conclusion of the event, it was breathtaking and totally amazing. For me, this was actually my very first eclipse and I have to say it was something worth marking.

One uncommon thing that I think added to the amazingness, making it so much more of an event; not just watching the sun being hidden behind the moon but getting to seeing the surrounding differences. I’m not sure if that completely makes sense, maybe it’s just part of my science interest. As in how the environment changes in accordance to everything, the link that exists.
