I have to ask myself this question all the time. I even ask my cat, Libra.

To me, a good person is someone who would return a wallet, as is, if found, regardless if the wallet had a shit ton of money inside. Why? Because this shows how strong their moral compass is, especially when given a situation that is very tempting.

A couple of days ago, I came across this kind of situation. It wasn’t a wallet though. I was at the gym near the squat rack and I noticed there were a couple of locking collars lying by the barbell I was about to use. Collars are clips that lock weights into place on a barbell. They cost around $20 – $50 for a pair and the ones I found looked pretty nice. No one claimed them and the gym doesn’t supply those because people would take them…

Ray of hope.

What is the worst feeling in the world? To me, it’s that sickening pit in my stomach when I have 20 chapters of chemistry left to study for an exam the next day! The disappointment at my incapacity. It’s almost intense enough to drown in. I’ve always hated this feeling. It’s the one thing that makes me lose my sense of balance, I know, ironic isn’t it? The girl with no fear (or at least the girl who pretends she has no fear) is scared of tests.

Well it’s not ALL that juvenile if you think about it. 😛 What are tests?  It’s where you prove yourself and “test” your capabilities. So it’s okay to be nervous 😛 if your someone who craves perfection. And almost as if paraphrasing my fear in perhaps a much more dramatic way. I heard little Kal’s voice say, “The world’s too big, Mom”. I swear I almost choked on my food when I saw that sad little kid hiding in the closet. I was watching man of steel. The one movie I swore I’d never watch. But then, procrastinating from studying seemed more important than keeping my word. 😛

Superman who I hated. Who I referred to as the “nerd who is scared of a green rock” had all my attention. Maybe it was my nervousness, maybe it was because I’ve been thinking a lot about the future lately, but the story of a boy trying to find his place in the world, that was something I could totally relate to.

I have to believe that you were sent here for a reason. And even if it takes the rest of your life, you owe it to yourself to find out what that reason is

Even a child, alone in a foreign world with no one who even belonged to the same species could find his way when he was given a few words of encouragement. Is that all we need? That helping hand that guides the way when we’re lost. It almost makes you feel, anyone can be superman if they tried. What I loved most about the movie was that superman was no longer the embodiment of perfection. He infact was just another human with every little flaw. The only thing special about him (besides the death ray eyes and the whole hulk strength) was that he wanted to be good. It’s like a subtle message, you can achieve anything as long as there’s a little good in you. Hope. That’s what it gave me.

And of course the striking new additions would be the super hot guy and this New found sense of humour that super man movies seemed to miss all this while. It’s finally helped it fit in with the intimidating line of super heroes today’s cinema offers. Well Mr. Clark, err.. Superman we seem to have had a misunderstanding before 😀 you don’t seem all that bad afterall.
