Good to see theyve started filing again. The trailer was quite good but apparently it came out after only having shot 10% of the movie. 

  

Yeah. Apparently they’ll be done filming by the end of the year, which is good.

Oh, and it’s now THE WEEKEND.

Good to see you, @Rita Eleanor. Brazil has been looking a bit dodgy so good to know you're okay.

Been a bit of a crazy year. The virus is on the up in the UK and we went into new restrictions last night; here in London we're in Tier 2 and aren't allowed to meet people outside of our household indoors as we head into winter. Great fun when you live alone. But what can you do!

Life goes on, after a fashion.

@Rita Eleanor, glad you came back to our happy forum! I'm still carrying on in this pandemic. We were off work for a few weeks in March and April, but we are back in full swing now. My husband's work didn't shut down at all.

Have you heard Paul's song Back In Brazil? It's so good!

The Hole Got Fixed, Ahhh Girl and Ron Nasty, thanks for the mensages! Nice meet you too, The Hole Got Fixed!

Here is really complicated. But I'm safe.
 
As I am a student I do not need to work, but unfortunately the reality of the majority does not have this option.
 
It's been seven months of "quarantine". I feel that we didn't have a 2 Tie, the day with the fewest deaths was last week, with 450 people.
 
It is very sad to say this, but the rates of cases and deaths became "normal".
Many bars and cafes are crowded, many people without a mask...
 
Unfortunately, many people still believe that everything is just a "big conspiracy", and they continued their lives normally. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

I hope everything is fine with you! I'm following the news, take care!
 
Changing the subject, I love "Back to Brazil", thanks for remember, I'm listening now. heart

I had my wisdom teeth taken out on Thursday-- not fun but also it was very nice getting to sleep in bed all day after surgery and get milkshakes. Other than that, I've been doing nothing but school, watching spooky movies with friends every week, and goofing around on the BB Discord. I also have to work on college essays......but i don't wanna.......

Oh, also I got my scores back from the 2nd time i took the SAT.....and I got the same exact composite score as I did the first time. HOWEVER, this time my math score was the higher score, compared to last time where my reading score was higher, and thus since colleges most take into account your highest reading/writing and math scores, so by combining those scores I got a higher SAT score overall. (I got a 1400 composite both times, my highest reading is 760 and my highest math is 660, so therefore my overall total SAT score that colleges consider is a 1420. woop!)

The Braves season is over much to my disappointment. Heartbreaking way to lose three straight games after taking a commanding 3-1 series lead. Game 7 was really close.

We buried my dad today. Everything happened so fast. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer just about 8 weeks ago but it had already metastasized into his bones and pretty much everywhere but his brain. He ended up in hospice a little over a week ago and passed under a comfy blanket of morphine and atavan.

I spoke at the funeral:

My dad was brilliant, difficult, complicated and simple.

He believed there was a right way to do everything and he was the only one who knew what it was.

He was angry a lot and felt misunderstood. He drank every night and smoked a pack a day for decades. I was terrified of him my whole life and wanted nothing as much as I wanted his love and approval.

There were moments of tenderness. We spent hours together building a model railroad in the basement. When it was time for the pinewood derby in cub scouts he showed me all the tools to use, resulting in a car that was perfectly constructed and lost every race. But most nights he sat down in the basement lighting one cigarette from the last and drinking.

He was human, he was scared just like we all are. He had a very hard time showing love but every time he did, it was something special.

I’ll miss you dad. If there’s an afterlife I know you’re there now telling them everything they’re doing wrong.

I'm very, very sorry to hear that, @Pablo Ramon , it's never easy. I know your pain, it would have been my grandfather's 85th birthday today had he not succumbed to lung cancer as well last month. 2020 is an awful year, but we'll get through it together.heart

Here's to 2021, it cannot come soon enough.

I've been feeling low in recent times and feel like life is getting away from me. I'm taking solace in the most basic pleasures: being alive and music. It's hard but as John sang in God , "we'll just have to carry on." I'm sure things will work out in the end.
