Love, Simon is about a normal high school guy named Simon Spier (played by Nick Robinson). The only thing is that he has a little secret…he’s gay. Simon’s parents, played by Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel don’t have any clue that Simon is gay and met each other in high school. Simon has a few supportive friends and begins emailing this guy, who’s also gay from a blog posting website and they start to develop a close relationship together. This guy, who sees Simon’s emails on the school computer threatens to black mail him by trying to get him to hook him up with one of his friends, who isn’t interested in him at all. Love, Simon displays through comedy by having people ‘come out’ as straight, to see how laughable it is and to realize that it’s hard for gay people to come out to their family members.
Love, Simon does a great job of not having the audience feel sorry for Simon just because he’s gay, but to see him as just another human being. This movie doesn’t go into gay stereotypes and it’s a great love story that’ll make you happy.
Today I decided to see the movie, The Shape Of Water, directed by Guillermo Del Toro. It stars Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, Michael Shannon and Octavia Spencer. It’s about a mute woman finding a confined fish man, who the higher ups at the facility she works at want to harm. Elisa (Sally Hawkins) eventually falls in love with the fish and Giles (Richard Jenkins), who’s Elisa’s care taker is reluctant at first to accept that she and the fish are close. It’s pretty interesting and I enjoyed the film.
I also got some Mexican food and two margaritas from a nearby Mexican restaurant. Knowing that I eventually ran up a $31 bill all for myself made me realize that I am not smart with money. I am currently unemployed and have looked for a job, since losing my job pushing carts at a grocery store last June. I am currently living with my disabled mother and I just hope that good things come along my way. I need to start taking more intuition and get some money coming in, I also need to find more happiness.
Thank you all for reading this and I hope you’re doing well.
