Today we celebrated the work of one of the, if not the, best actors of all time. I quoted him many times today as I wore my t-shirt custom made for today. I got some strange looks because of my t-shirt which said in all caps “International Tom Hanks Day”. I was displeased to hear the checkout woman at Khol’s tell me: ” I thought he was dead.” She deserved a good slap which I reframed from doing.
But overall it was a good day to glorify Mr. Hanks’s work and life. Happy Intetnational Tom Hanks Day to all of the fellow Hanks fans out there! May everyday be as wonderful as today.
One year doesn’t seem like a long time when it is brought up in conversation or compared to the number of years you have been present on the Earth. It is only 12 months and roughly 48 weeks. Four seasons occur and 10 months of school do also. So in the world wide perspective, one year is only a centimeter in Earth’s circumference of life.
But when you think of one year as an anniversary of a continuous relationship, it is not measured the same. In the begining of the relationship pure excitement and infatuation blinds you from reality which is that you have spent half a year with this person. Then fights begin to ensue and frustration about the other person’s flaws sets in your mind. Over-analysation of the other persons statements makes up your rebutles. Then you wake up one day and realize that you have spent the past 365 days in love with the same person. It is an awsome phenomenal.
Words that relate to moments, events, a life filled of naps alone and sleepless nights. They describe days that seem out of focus and dreams that are nightmares. Tests upon failed quizzes and homework upon graded book checks are the definitions of them.
I’m tired of being described in antonyms, I want to live in the synonyms.
