Communicating.

American Hustle. Wasn’t a bad movie but wasn’t the greatest movie. I love Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper pairing, especially in Silver Linings Playbook. The movie had funny moments and serious moments and the plot was well thought out. However, at the end I thought they accomplished nothing. I don’t know, the ending really didn’t do it for me.

I also stopped midway through the movie to play Payout 2 on the Xbox 360. So, maybe I lost the storyline of the movie by the time I got to the end. Anyways, it was a good movie.

Payout 2 is a mind boggling game because every time you start a bank heist over the map of the bank changes. Meaning, where the security room once was, isn’t anymore the next time you retry the heist, as well as the safe (it keeps moving too). I love that it keeps changing because it keeps the game interesting and you need to keep coming up with a new strategy to complete the heist.

I also played Don’t Starve on the Playstation 4. I love that game. It is a survival game where you must collect things and build and axe, fire, armor, etc. to live. Little side stories are added like a portal to enter 5 chapters or worlds to save another character Walter. When it’s nightfall you must have a fire or else beasts get you, and in the day time you may run into beasts as well and fight them. It’s a very fun survival game. It’s an indie game, and the art is awesome I love it.

Overall, that’s what today consisted of along with shoveling some snow a bit off my steps and driveway, and hearing that my cousin who is autistic ripped part of her ear off again. I have twin cousins who are severely autistic and I always always feel so bad that their condition will never get better. I remember as a kid I used to watch them as babies and they knew somewhat who I was, one knew better than the other. I wish they could communicate better, I feel their frustration when they can’t express what they want or need.

They’re 16 now, getting big and their behaviors are controlled but my aunt and uncle are getting very old. I just worry what will happen when they’re too big and too severe for my elderly relatives. They have great teachers that come over daily to help at least.

Man, do we take communicating for granted like understanding movies (such as American Hustle) and talking about it afterwards, understanding games (like Payout 2 and Don’t Starve), or simply expressing how we feel. Imagine not being able to understand and fully enjoy any movie or game and not be able to communicate to others how we feel about that movie or game. We don’t realize that communicating is so important and it’s frustrating when we can’t get our points across clearly for others to understand.

It’s the small things like that we should be thankful for when we think we have it rough or just having a shitty day.
