a life lesson i’ve absorbed over the last week or so: trying too hard doesn’t work.
i watched garden state for the second time ever last night. the first time it felt all… profound. it was during a bout of serious depression a little over three years ago. afterwards, i went out and bought it and haven’t been able to bring myself to watch it since. until last night.
this time i didn’t think it was all deep and… stuff. i just thought it was really heavy-handed, and it left me sort of emotionally confused.
so. quilts. curly fries at cambridge common. truly terribly films featuring bill pullman as a fighter pilot president.
and that, as they say, is the way we get by.
