Stormy Saturday night thoughts
The rain is stronger now outside. I can hear the wind whistling and pitter patter of rain as it hits the glass windows. A draft can be felt now and then. It's wet all around.
I'm writing this hoping that I can finish it and publish it successfully. I would not be surprised if we will not have electricity later on.
Phone, charged. Flashlight, charged. Candles, ready.
These are just little worries and nothing compared to those who are affected worse by the storm - flood, no electricity and the storm have claimed lives (67 was the last count I have read).
The majority of strong storms usually hit our country at the last quarter of the year.
There's nothing else that we can do but pray for everyone's safety.
Because it rained today, I was not able to go out for a walk or were were able to go anywhere other than buy stuff from a nearby store.
The rest of the day, I spent looking for jobs and watching movies, which led me to The Cabinet of Curiosities which is a Netflix series. These are evil, terrifying, horror stories. Each story has a different director. Some are predictable. Some have anticlimactic scenes while some have boring ones. There is one episode there where Rupert Grint starred in. He played Ron Weasley in Harry Potter. I think I have seen another movie of his but that was it.
I have asked this before and I want to ask again. How far will you go to do something for your loved ones? for yourself? for others? Would you risk your life and do whatever it takes no matter how risky or say, how evil the act is?
In one episode, she even killed her husband because she felt he was not supportive of her to attain beauty. The mind is a complex thing. Sometimes we have to walk on eggshells because we do not know what to say or do so that our partner will not get mad.
In one episode, a brother's love for his twin had wasted his life just to bring her sister back from the dead.
We really cannot know how dire a situation is unless we ourselves are put in such a position.
That reminds me of what person A said to another (B): "Give up some of your kids for adoption instead of you suffering." The context of that was, person B just can't seem to make ends meet. She is a single parent with three kids and she tries her best to provide for them. Whatever the reason person A said that to B, I find that inappropriate. Would you easily give up your family like that?
Anyway, The Cabinet of Curiosities is not for everyone. It's gruesome, gory, morbid and ghastly. However, if it is something within your interest, then go for it.
The rain outside has stopped. I hope the storm will be over soon.
