Captain Marvel

Yes, I went and saw yet another superhero movie. I can’t help it, I have always loved a good superhero flick ever since I was a kid. “Captain Marvel” is a good superhero flick. While not a “knock your socks off awesome” entry, It’s a thoroughly fun watch from beginning to end. Set in the 1990s, before the events in “The Avengers”, the film introduces Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Danvers, played by Brie Larson, had been taken in and trained by the Kree in the Starforce Military after being involved in an accident that wiped her memory. She ends up crashing to Earth during a battle with the Skrulls and begins to discover that she is not who she believes she is. With help from S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury, Danvers begins to unravel the truth about her past as well as uncovering an even bigger secret.

The story and action sequences are on par with most other MCU hero origin stories. A good amount of humor to balance out the serious tones. Great visual effects. A good lead in to the upcoming Avengers: Endgame and  very fun to watch. I score it at 7.5 out of 10.

Did you ever have a dream? Did you ever have a goal in life?

Well, have you?

Do What’s Natural

Why do people who choose to follow alternative diets have to try and push their views onto others? Vegans can be the most annoying, but then there are the vegetarians, the strict carnivores, and then the gluten free even though you don’t have celiac people and so on. People get so holier than thou and believe everyone should do as they do to make this planet a better place. Many make a point to constantly announce it to the world. News flash guys, the only thing you’re doing for the planet is annoying everyone else. Humans, like many other animals, are naturally omnivores and have been since we crawled out of the primordial soup. Our bodies for the most part were designed to take in nutrients from both animals and vegetation within reasonable balance.

Going vegetarian or vegan is not going to do the planet any less damage than we are already doing with pollution and consuming more natural resources than the earth can replenish in a short amount of time. Industrialization is killing the world, not hamburgers. If you wish to be a strict herbivore then more power to you, I may even join you for a nice vegan/vegetarian meal (as long is there is absolutely no soy involved) from time to time because that’s just what an omnivore would be willing to do for their friends but don’t expect me to convert. I do agree that we should stop force feeding animals or pumping them with drugs to artificially enhance their size or procreation rate, and that they should be kept in better conditions but not eating animal products is not going to get that particular message across. If we could go back to a time of hunters and gatherers and nothing is so overly processed it would be great, but that will never happen. Eat what you feel is natural for you and quit preaching.

Here We Go Again, She Means Well Though

I love my sister but sometimes I don’t think she really thinks about things all the way. Then again maybe I analyze the hell out of things too much, except for maybe some comments I leave on Facebook when I’m feeling down. Yesterday I made a comment on a post made by our half sister, something along the lines of happiness and success and how I haven’t obtained any of that yet. Hey, it’s true. Well my sister chimes in with, “You’re still young & not married & no rugrats. You can still go to school or online classes for a new career & Aunt Theresa said before to come stay w/her & try to start over. Sell some stuff, put some stuff in storage, take necessities & start fresh.”

Just a few minor problems with that oh sister of mine that you just don’t get. Nobody seems to get it actually. I don’t have the money to just up and go or else I would have done that already and be living my dream. Just because I don’t have a litter of children (thanks for rubbing that in by the way) does not mean I have a lot of money. Moving requires money. School requires money. Storage requires money. Sell stuff? What I got is not worth all that much. Also, there is no guarantee of finding a job if I just up and move to somewhere. Get me a job or $50,000 sis, that will be a good start. As for my aunt, as much as I love her I don’t think I could live with her. For one thing, my aunt is a devout Christian and would not look kindly upon my Agnostic views. Yes dear readers, I am Agnostic though I respect all religions. Secondly, she is a close-minded Trump supporter. And from what I can tell her house is full enough as it is with at least one of her children and a bunch of grandchildren always around. I think we would clash too much.

Sometimes those on the outside think there are easy solutions for everything when in reality it is all easier said than done.

They Remain Blind, But I Could Never Forget

Sometimes I don’t know why I still mess with Facebook. I suppose because it’s now the only way I can get messages to some friends. But sometimes it makes me want to let my opinions fly to some people or maybe even reach through the internet and slap someone around. Sometimes my two aunts get on a reminiscing kick, which isn’t always a bad thing, but then sometimes start going on and on about some relatives that have died. Auntie R not quite as bad as Auntie T, but they both do it.

This week Auntie T has been going on and on incessantly about my cousin Kelli who died about 10 years ago or so. Auntie T is one of those people who believe certain people could do no wrong in her eyes and that if you tried to tell her differently she will not believe you. She is a lot like her mother that way. Grandma was the same way with Kelli and pretty much everyone else, which always annoyed my father to no end and is pretty much the reason he hated visiting. Well this week, Auntie T has been posting pictures and everyone was all boo-hooing and saying how much they miss her, and all I could feel is intense anger and hatred. I cannot share in their grief because I actually feel glad that she is gone, though I don’t tell my aunts that of course. Maybe that makes me a bad person, but how could I feel bad at the loss of someone who chased me (I was but a child of 11 or 12) around with a large knife on one occasion, held me down daring me to scream just because she didn’t like me quietly listening to my headphones one day, held a pillow on my face a couple times and laughed about it, constantly harassing me and threatening me for no reason whatsoever and whenever I would go to an adult with issues I would be dismissed and told I was imagining things or I’m just trying to start trouble which is funny because I was always the quiet one. This girl was so evil, she couldn’t even stand it when her boyfriend at the time, who was a good 12 years my senior by the way, gave me a stuffed bear for my 12th birthday and she beat on her boyfriend because of it. It got to the point to where I hated visiting my grandmother. My sister and I would often go there on weekends but after awhile I began to just stay the night next door at Auntie R’s just so I wouldn’t have to deal with it all. So yeah, excuse me if I don’t share in the worship.

I’ll never understand how people can look straight into the face of evil and be so blind to it. I’ll never understand how an adult can bully a child and others pretend it’s not happening. I’ll never understand why someone would celebrate or mourn somebody with such evil in their hearts, and yes the whole family knew she was bad. And before you ask where my parents were when this was going on, they did not know the extent of what was happening when they were sending my sister and I off to grandma’s for a weekend visit, especially when grandma herself doesn’t know half of what goes on when she’s not around. My sister didn’t even know a lot of what went on because sometimes bullies like to get you when nobody is looking so that way when you go to tell on them, there is nobody to back you up.

I feel tired sometimes. Not sleepy tired, just tired of everything. Some days I cannot even get motivated to get out of bed. All motivation seems to be getting sapped away again. I hate these feelings.

Why should I have to give up my dreams just because everyone else gave up on theirs?
