Growing up movies.... When I think about movies in general, I think about the VHS, the VCR (no beta thankfully), and the rows and rows of copied tapes that my parents and I created when I was in elementary school. We purchased a VCR in 1986. Every Labor Day weekend we would go purchase a rather large amount of blank VHS tapes, rent another VCR and about 20-30 movies for under a dollar each. Marathon is not a fitting term for what we did. I loved it.
The kids were in charge of the G/PG films during the day. My mom and dad would take care of R at night after my siblings and I went to bed. We would fit three, two-hour movies on each tape (not understanding that this would make those VHS wear out way faster--and the picture was not as crisp). My dad would always take care of the "setup" (hooking up a VCR to another VCR that is attached to a television is tedious). We made ourselves scarce for that part of the process. For the watching, we were present. I was also allowed to load the movies and cue them up. It was always fun hitting play/record. We had a VCR with buttons that would light up red for whichever action was in use. The only time there were two red lights were when you were recording (Play/Rec). I always enjoyed looking at that. It seemed like we were accomplishing something.
I love movies.
So much so that I feel the stories I write about are envisioned as films in my head first; naturally.
As I continue blogging my intent is to write and share my experience with specific movies starting as early as I can remember. I am not planning on reviewing films so this won't be a critical blog. My intent is to convey how those movies made me feel growing up and sharing the chronology of my movie viewing experience.
I hope it will be enjoyable and I am excited to get started.
First up: Disney's "The Jungle Book"

For years I've thought about these 5 principles and how they apply in life and work. I've found that they are each at work in some form when I'm reaching a goal I have set and haven't had anyone tell me they aren't important to personal and professional growth. It isn't an exhaustive list by any means but it is a great place to start. Including principles like these have helped me stand out in a sea of resumes and provide employers an idea of how I approach work. What principles do you bring into work with you?

Ye mere desh k culture k thekedar hai,
Yaha ladki ka character uske kapdo se mapa jata hai
Yaha ye matter nahi karta wo sahi hai ya galat,
Chote kapdo mei hai to she is asking for it
Impress karne k liye hi wo kapde pehanti hai
Uski soch ,uski choice, uska comfort ye mayne nahi rakhta
Ladki hokar wo apni soch kaise rakh sakti hai
Kyi logo se two timing ki hogi usne
Par suit pehanti hai to galat ho kaise sakti hai
Aur skirt pehan li to ,chahe uski zindagi mei koi ho na ho
Lekin slut ki category mei wo aane ko taiyyar hai !!
Ye mere desh k culture k thekedar hai !!! Rape nahi ho sakta iska ,
For sure case forged hai ,
Koi sharam rakhne wali ladki
Kabhi ye keh nahi sakti
K uske sath aisa kuch hua hai .
Chupchap agar sehti rahe
To izzat ki haqdar hai
Ye mere desh k culture k thekedar hai !!! Uske kapde ye dikhate hai ki wo chahti hai uske sath galat ho
Aur galat hoke kuch bol gyi tab to usne zarur nyota hi diya hoga,
Rape thode na zabardasti hai
Ik mauka hai jo us ladki ne hi tumahre andar k janvar ko diya hai,
Wo janvar jo apne harmones control nahi kar paya
Aur unko uncontrol karne k liye bhi to wo ladki hi zimmedar hai
Ye mere desh k culture k thekedar hai !! Mere desh ka culture jo itne salo se tika hai
Wo aj hil gya hai kiunki ladkiyo ne chote kapde pehne hai
Ye matter nahi karta ki tum us culture mei devi mane jane wali ladkiyo ko wo izzat do na do
Bas ye matter karta hai k ladkiya jaise tumhare culture ki definition hai vaise kapde pehne
Akhir ladkiyo par hi to is desh k culture ka sarobhar hai
Ye mere desh k culture k thekedar hai !!!
Ye mere desh k culture k thekedar hai !!! .
A cringe worthy discussion that led to this !!!

Happy #FeelGoodFriday 💜 We love to hear what Alumni have been up to since their exchange. #KLYES and YFU Alumna, Portia, is helping empower girls in Ghana by creating and distributing feminine hygiene kits to girls in areas where these products are unaffordable or unavailable. Portia said, " I have always had this inborn feeling of wanting to help others, and a year of participating in the YES program has blossomed this feeling into a responsibility I'm beginning to understand and explore." 🇬🇭 #WeAreYFU#ExchangesMatter#ExchangeOurWorld
(BWF World Junior Championships 2017) Ganda Campuran Indonesia Dan Tiongkok Berebut Tiket Final
Dua pasangan ganda campuran Indonesia akan berhadapan dengan Tiongkok, untuk memperebutkan tiket final Blibli.com Yonex Sunrise BWF World Junior Championships 2017.
Rehan Naufal Kusharjanto/Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti akan berhadapan dengan Fan Qiuyue/Liu Xuanxuan sedangkan Rinov Rivaldy/Pitha Haningtyas Mentari menantang Liu Shiwen/Li Wenmei.
“Untuk besok kami optimis tapi tidak jumawa. Mudah-mudahan besok semua bisa mengatasi Tiongkok dan ke final. Untuk strategi nanti akan beda-beda karena tipe main mereka juga beda. Kami lihat video dulu dan harus yakin dengan pola sendiri. Apalagi dengan situasi lapangan angin, kami lebih yakin. Kami tidak ingin takabur tapi semoga anak-anak bisa menghadapi lawan-lawannya tersebut,” kata Nova Widianto, pelatih ganda campuran.
Menghadapi laganya di semifinal besok (21/10), Rehan/Fadia mengaku akan mempersiapkan diri lebih baik lagi. Sudah dipastikan mengamankan medali perunggu, Rehan/Fadia pun berharap bisa mencapai hasil lebih.
“Kami harus siap dari awal jangan kalah start. Sama untuk persiapan besok akan melihat video lawan untuk dipelajari,” kata Fadia.
“Yang penting lebih berani capek karena Tiongkok lebih rapat mainnya, konsentrasi ditambah lagi. Kami harus tenang dan nggak boleh nafsu di lapangan,” imbuh Rehan.
