Movie Review: If I Stay

Assalamualaikum and hello to all of you!

We got cuti for 3 days alhamdulillah but still, there are stacks of homeworks to do and I've done 4/5 of it. And a hiwar text to be remembered. Lets skip the mukaddimah, can I?

So, the last 1-week holiday, I watched a lot of new movies and one of it is this. If I stay. Well, movie ni sudah lama ditayangkan actually but I just downloaded it that week so.. that's it.

This story is tragic. It's about Mia Hall, who just had an accident resulting to a lot of loss in her life. Now, she's experiencing an out-body-experience and she will be deciding whether her body will die or live. There are a lot of flashbacks in this movie, the ups and the downs. But the flashbacks are more about her complicated love story with a boy in a band, Adam. When she's losing so much in her life, she also has her best friend, her family and Adam. She has a lot to reason to go, but there are also a lot of reason to stay.

The main reason I watched this was because Chloe Grace Moretz and one of the characters is named Adam (I'm so obsessed with that name). I can't say that I love the movie, but I don't hate it either. It is somehow good, but maybe the tragic things that happen in this movie making it hard for me to completely love it. I love Adam, but in the same time I hate him. I hate what Mia and Adam doing to each other. But what I hate the most is the loss in Mia's life. It's so devastating. If I'm in her shoes, I think I'll prefer to just go. 

And the soundtracks are so so so nice! I love it so much. Some songs that I keep playing on repeat from the soundtracks album are:

  1. Halo - Ann Brun, Linnea Olson.
  2. Today - Willamette Stone
  3. Heart Like Yours - Willamette Stone
  4. Heal - Tom Odell
  5. Promise - Ben Howard

I give this movie 3.8/5 stars. Probably romantic drama doesn't fit me so much. But to the people who love romance movies who make you cry out loud, maybe you should try this. I didn't cry but even Titanic never makes me cry so...

Here's the trailer:

How To Make Everyone Love You (You Don't)

Of course the only reason I'm putting this gif here because of Blair Waldorf.

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!

This week is one of typical week as usual. Homeworks, presentation, extra class, not getting enough sleep, feeling tired. One word to describe my week? Bliss (note the sarcasm).

I'm gonna talk about something that we can't change, read the title. 
Obviously, humans are not perfect. There is no human in this world that is perfect. I am not perfect. You are not perfect. They are not perfect. Everybody has their own flaws including that was hidden perfectly by the flaw owner.

When you change everything, every single thing about yourself, that you're not sure that you love the change or not, don't you realize, that even if you change everything about yourself, that tidak-sedar-diri hater will still exist? I bet you know it, it's just you don't want to accept that fact. 

Even if you're beautiful and smart and nice and religious and whatever so on, that hater will still exist in your life. I don't know why, maybe that's lumrah for humans? Because there are certain people that have this kind of feeling that urging to find someone else's flaw instead for fixing their own flaws? Jealousy? That's it. You can't satisfy everyone. And everyone wouldn't satisfy you. Sometimes they didn't understand. Sometimes you're the only one who understand.  

Sometimes you're the one who wrong. Come on, you're not always right. People learn something from their mistakes. So, go ask them for their forgiveness and try to fix it. Some flaws need to be fixed, some are too natural and you can't fix it. You're not perfect. But if you keep doing the same mistake, and saying that you're being you, you're not perfect I think that's wrong. I told you. Some of it should be fixed on your way of becoming a better person.

So, segala yang baik itu datang daripada Allah, dan segala yang buruk itu datang dari diri saya sendiri. Assalamualaikum and farewell.

"Sometimes the people around won't understand your journey. They don't need to, it's not for them."
