Before I went to see Before Midnight, I watched Before Sunrise and commented that it was startling, even as someone who’s seen it many times, to see how young they really were. And someone pointed out something remarkable to me: For those of us who were roughly the same age as Jesse and Celine, it’s not that we don’t remember how young they were; it’s that we never registered how young they were to begin with, because we didn’t register how young we were.

I feel like I have aged incredibly since I watched the first film, even though that happened just 11 months ago. I watched the second last night. And now—
I'm Alec. I'm go to high school in Seattle, which is a great city. I apologize if some of the stuff on this blog is immature; I was a different person when I started posting here than I am now. I tried to clean up some of the more distasteful things.

Things I feel particularly loving for at this moment: my yellow Arrow t-shirt (Clare and the Reasons!), Pushing Daisies, FIREFLY, Community, Netflix on my phone, anticipation to go back to school, sleep, questioning whether "anticipation to go back to school" is grammatically correct, the new Voice number I just got, those times when my mind is thinking clear enough that I can actually write things in this list and not keep flipping away and feeling like I need to sleep, Luna Lovegood-(8.26.10)
theta, spring, fun ferry rides with friends, music, feeling carefree, throwing it all to the wind, future less vivid, sun, some traits of myself, insignificance, Luxana, birds, blue things, green things, white things-(3.7.10)
So I decided I'm just going to add to this list and not delete older stuff-knowledge, good things, friendly people, REGINA SPEKTOR!, words, mathematics, NPR, Luna Lovegood, the design of Wired, colours, science, more-(12.2.09)
Participles, Luna Lovegood, Mika's new album "The Boy Who Knew Too Much," Alec (me), snow, energy, my friends (aww that's sweet en't it?), Seattle, my iPhone (her name's Mollie), film!, whipped cream, love, books, my brain, laughter, other stuff
