(August 23, Sunday)
It was a day of anticipation and nervousness. However, it was very nice to watch Harry Potter for the first time. Watching it kept my mind off of “tomorrow” and kept me in the present.
As bad as it sounds, I often lean towards distractions to pull me away from reality. But, inevitably, there comes a time while I am distracted that I “wake” up to reality, and think on it. I don’t necessarily like it, but it helps me to remind myself that I can’t escape. There is nothing that can forever pull us away from reality, not even death. No matter the situation, it is happening, it is current. It sucks, but, often times if you compare it with the movie you are currently watching, life may sound better and more reassuring.
Anyway, it was a fantastic day to spend with friends!
