The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘he wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.

I still don’t know what to do with my life.

Yeah, being nineteen isn’t that much of a deal. Some people tell me that it’s too early to be thinking of the future, some people say that it’ll be too late if I don’t start now.

In the past few days, I’ve made hard decisions. I fell out of a relationship that I thought would last forever and change my views about marriage. I chose to shift out of the course which was supposed to be my ticket to an easy, prosperous life in the future.

I dunno. I just turned nineteen a few hours and a day ago. I don’t feel any wiser, though.

A friend asked me why I didn’t feel like celebrating my birthday. I told him, “I don’t get the point of it.” And I honestly don’t. Maybe the people around me are thankful because I didn’t bail on them a few years back? Maybe they’re happy for themselves, because they managed to raise and support me up to now? They have different reasons, I think.

As for me, I don’t see the point in celebrating.

Life is so easy to throw away, if one wishes to.
