A Love Story…

A friend asked me to post this on my blog.

No, I didn’t write this.

No, the guy in this story isn’t me.

Nor am I the girl in this story.

Therefore I don’t want to hear from anyone through facebook, phone calls, or texts saying “How sorry you are for my loss”  or “How you too know how it feels to go through a break-up” and then proceed to share your most recent heartbreak story with me.

You have been warned.

A Love Story…

You may not know me, I am only one of the billions on this earth and even though there are many other amazing stories out there, I believe to my last breath that you will only come across the one I’m about to tell you, once…

I was never good around girls. Being too shy to even speak to friends didn’t help that fact either. That’s why I consider myself lucky for having met the most wonderful girl in the world…

I was an idiot that couldn’t see the signs that she liked me, but thanks to her persistence we wouldn’t be here now.

So, here is my love story. It all started with a Kiss…

I don’t know if she recalls… It was after all, out of the blue

She asked if I could drive her to work one night. I agreed and dropped her off in front of her workplace. We held hands the whole way there. And then I remember… For that split second before leaving my car. She gave me a quick peck on the cheek.

She may not have known… To her it may have been a simple thank you gesture. But that kissed made me the happiest guy alive at that moment. I couldn’t help but smile all the way home.

I snuck out later that night at 3am. Being as quiet as possible. Eager to go and pick her up…

On the ride back to her house. She hugged my arm the entire way. And I had to question, Was she into me? And if she was.. I thought. Why me? But really I didn’t care. I just was lost in that moment… and everything changed that next day.

On the First date…

Foreign Movie Review: Rurouni Kenshin

Foreign Movie Review: Rurouni Kenshin

***Spoiler Alert***

Synopsis: Blood thirsty assassin samurai trying to find a new path of life now that the war is over and the army no longer needs his services anymore.

He shows he is ready to leave the past behind by carrying a reverse-blade sword, which is incapable of killing anyone since the front of the sword is blunt.

Kenshin quickly makes new friends and with the help of his friends he establishes a peaceful new life.

But his dark past follows him wherever he goes and threatens to sabotage his new future.

There is also an evil force of greed that threatens to take away the dojo he has called home and all his new friends that now reside their.

In the end, he and his new friends battle it out with swords, fists, and heart.

Final Thoughts: For a movie that is based on an anime. This is well done.

I have watched the anime and have to applaud the director/writer for staying true to the anime and bringing to life what we have seen before through animation.

Characters, dialogue, and story line all are mashed together beautifully leaving behind no questions as to why they did the things they did.

Even if you have not seen the anime, I’m sure you will enjoy the action sequences, solid storyline, and the exotic background of Japan.

The main reason why I didn’t give it a 5/5 is because I felt like some of the characters were left out like Yahiko and Mrs. Kauro.

Also the anime was known to be somewhat silly and humorous. That part was definitely left out in the live-action movie version.

Rating: 4/5
