Secrets from a Girl (Who's Seen It All)

This didn't change my life after watching.
It improved it.

Themes of generational trauma, resentment, cynicism, philosophy, and basically having a consciousness, displayed in one of the most eccentric, absurd, and non-traditional ways I've seen done in YEARS. (Legitimately has some of the best and funniest fight scenes since Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.)

There's almost too much of what I want to say about it, this shit is next-level, so I'll try my best. (Later Edit: On small rewatches, more of the story's chaotic visuals make more sense.)

I've been a very glass half empty kind of person I think since, I was a kid.
It's been very easy to only see the negative in any situation, especially knowing that there's always one there. And that way of thinking feels almost addictive.
But the things is, I want to be wrong. I want my negative thoughts just to be thoughts and not realities, but that has always been seen as naive to me.

Yet, I still find it enlightening to be reminded that, although the bad exists, so does the good, it's just as powerful, and I'm just as able to make the most of it as anyone else.
(Just had a rethinking on certain emotions)
It's just that, life can feel like everything all at once.

Thankfully, there's still a way to navigate the chaos.

Believe the hype.
Plus "Everything" bagels are gross anyway.
