Happy 2018!

I’m sure 2017 wasn’t the best for many of us. Perhaps for others it was the best year they’ve ever had, whether it was good financially, socially, or spiritually.

However your 2017 was, hopefully 2018 will be even better–and it will be better. Make sure your new-year resolutions aren’t too crazy. Baby-steps, baby-steps! Enjoy your time with family, friends, or alone (whether you’re glad to be alone or not), and have a fantastic new year!

It’s kind of like we’re viewed as aliens sent from another planet.

Obviously, we don’t interact with others much. We hardly say a word to anyone, and to someone who enjoys the company of others often, this puzzles extroverts. Are they antisocial? They might ask themselves. Do they have any friends? Why don’t they talk more? They don’t have to be shy. Why doesn’t she go out with us and have a good time? If I was stuck in the house all day, I’d go insane.

These are the questions I had to answer over and over as I was growing up and in socially-required environments such as family gatherings and job opportunities. I cannot tell you how many times I had to explain myself for something I simply do naturally–actually, I’m so caught up in my own world that I hardly notice that I’m not participating in the group or not interacting in general.

Miguel had a dream to become a musician. His family, however, banned music ever since his great, great grandmother started the trend after she was betrayed by her own husband. He focused on his music career more than his own family it seemed, and when he left her and their daughter, Coco, the mother got rid of all music in the house and raised their daughter on her own. Ever since, the family despised music–however, Miguel wasn’t going to give up his passion.

Out of 5 stars, this definitely deserves a full 5. Charming, funny, suspenseful–this movie was amazing. The people who created this movie worked hard to provide something as wonderful and eye-catching as this. You can tell that every detail was made with heart, and every word in the script was written with soul. Coco was made with pure passion. I highly recommend this incredible, cinematic experience!
