This weird movie starring Colin Farrell chronicles a man, and others like him, checking into this hotel for single people. During the application process, they each have to choose an animal they’d like to be turned into. If at the end of the 45 days stay they’re still single, they’ll be turned into that animal and sent out into the world.
It’s a dystopian movie. Only couples can enjoy the city, taking trips and cohabitation. If you’re seen alone, authorities ask for papers proving you’re in a relationship. Also, at the hotel, it’s all about routine.

In the past 12 weeks(?), I’ve lost count, I have learned to think more and more like a journalist in every aspect of my life. This is especially applicable when it comes to my social media and social life in general.
I used to allow my shyness and anxiety to hold me back from a lot of potential opportunities to connect with others and get to know them better. I was able to do that for so long, but it has cost me in ways I’ll explain later.
Have you ever been asked why you are the way that you are? If so, it could be taken a number of ways.
You could take it as a compliment like, “Oh, this curious person is interested in me!” Or you may be unfazed by it as if it’s a perfectly reasonable thing to ask, maybe as natural as them asking where are you from or can you cook. Or you might take it as a unique conversation starter.Continue reading “Why Are You the Way That You Are?”
