I have Identified so completely with Gatsby, Nick and Daisy alternately every time I revisit the story.
Watching that film was an experience that I don’t think I will write about but …
Simply put I think the film understood what the story said and what it feels like to experience those things that each character experienced:
The desperation in wanting something that just isn’t there anymore and the hopelessness you feel when it is all that possesses you.
The confusion of feeling so full of emotion and so lost by the conflicts in these feelings. Along with the fright you feel at the pressure to not make a mistake that could leave you irreparably damaged.
The depression and the emptiness you feel when other people are feeling and experiencing things, that you can only watch and admire.
Whether you have read the book or watched the movie you know who these characters are just by these descriptions of their feelings and chances are you also relate to them. I think the film captured this despite it’s flaws and that means a lot to me just as the book has meant a lot to me for these same reasons.
And the worst part is all of these songs they remind me of you, these songs that you never even listen to anymore, or even cared about. Nothing reminds you of me, except for me.
You’re the kind of girl I could see myself writing a book about. I hope you don’t mistake that for love, like I once did.
That is a tiny white girl with her foot up, driving a flat black dodge ram. #thesouth
Icona pop on the radio twice today. The soundtrack to last summer is blowing up this summer. Argh #hipstermusicpost
After four years of college I thought I’d post four photos of some of my many favorite moments at UNCC. So thankful for all the awesome stuff that has happened these past four years and all the incredible people.
