282.Wishes to stay weird

So I watched Amelie once again yesterday,and still managed to gain a new perspective on it.One of the most endearing qualities in the character Amelie is her lacking abillity to deal with social situations,but her obvious kind,do gooder heart. I think I find this a very interesting concept,and find movies that follow those sort of people quite relatable.Maybe I don't go to such extremes as Amelie(I have grown up with friends around me),I still do feel quite shy and unable to engage with those I don't know. I also don't really feel the need for social interactions on a constant basis.

I also happen to have watched Ghost World about 2 weeks ago. I think Enid is quite a contrast to Amelie-she also lacks social skills,but has turned against society/the people around her. She is an "outcast",yet shes bitter and cruel. I wont slash Enid too much-you do see later in the movie that she isn't completley cold and does have some heart. I don't really know the point of this post-I just generally find this a sort of intriguing.

ps I'm no longer in compulsory education!Yes I still have a few exams,and will be going to sixth form in a couple of months,but still I feel freeeeee. I took a bus home from school at lunch yesterday(there was no point in staying for the afternoon in art),and felt a small pang of sentiment over the 5 years I've been at my secondary school.I still remember year 7, how bewildered I felt not knowing a single person,whilst everyone already had there friendship groups.It's weird to think those school years have some what moulded my adolescence.This feeling of sentiment lasted a couple of minutes,and then I just went into "meh" mode,completley unbothered. Nothing is going to change that much for me-same teachers,same friends,same building,more work,more stress. meh.


  1. I know what you mean about it feeling like a limbo phase! I never thought I'd miss school but I guess after you've spent five years somewhere it's just a given. & oh right:) What you taking at Hunsley?
    Also yeah I am going to Wyke, it was the art rooms that sold it for me, there amazing I speechless when I walked in haha. But good luck to you as well:)x
