The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

I think at some point in our life, everyone was once a wallflower. Some might feel they are one more often than another. But I think this is why The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) has touched so many people hearts, in addition to it being a very good film itself. So, as you might have guessed, this movie has been wholeheartedly added to my favourite movie hall of fame.

Sweet Sixteen

I am turning twenty-six today. I know that is far older than sixteen and I didn’t mean to deceive you by the header. But as I am reaching twenty-six, I am reminded of the time I was turning sixteen. Honestly, I can’t remember, but it was supposed to be sweet, wasn’t it? And now at twenty-six, can it still be a candy-flavoured coming-of-age? Or sugar is restricted for grown-ups? Am I at all a grown-up? What had happened to that sixteen-year-old girl? How different am I at twenty-six from my sixteen self?
