i believe in second chances. not only that but i've grown to learn to keep moving forward. no matter what brings you down, what pulls you to your lowest, makes you feel like you are just a piece a shit. there's nowhere to look but up. because in the end, everything will be alright. everything will be just fine. be happy that you are still living, be thankful for everything you have, for the friends who have your back and for those who tell you that they hope to see you suceed. be happy that you have those people.

the world is in our hands, we just got to know what we could make of it.

Fixed the DVD proportions, burned it, put it in the DVD player and watched it. I choked up watching it. I really did. It’s like I had this really proud feeling within me, looking at all the pictures and music flow together. All the memories and remembering the fact that she has been there for me ever since the first day I arrived upon this world.

This week was a pretty difficult one for me. Finishing midterms on Wednesday, I kind of took this project on my own. But I didn’t do it on the basis of needing to do it but wanting to do it. Even I had a week-long run of midterms, Istill would’ve put the time and effort upon doing a project for my grandma. I love her. She’s gave so much for me and I wish I could give just as much back to her. I hope she will know all the effort and love I put into this montage.

To be honest I had different original intentons when starting this. I worried about impressing other people; wanting to prove that ‘Hey that’s right, this is a reason why I’m a film major. I can do things like this. I do have a talent’. But now I figured out the true meaning behind this as the week progressed and as I dealt with certain issues.

I’m doing this for my grandma. For her 90th birthday. Not for anyone else. I dont need to prove anything to anyone else. I just want to show my grandma how much I love her by making this for her. 

I have a feeling when Saturday comes by and once the DVD starts rolling on the screen, I might bust out crying. Haha.
