Christopher Nolan does it again. With familiar faces like Michael Caine and Cillian Murphy, the director managed to bring the gripping suspense and ingenuity from the likes of The Prestige and The Dark Knight, movies which were both also directed by him. This time, he plays around with the concept of dreams, giving out the idea that if you can get into another person’s unconscious mind, you can find out their secrets.

The suspense manages to build itself up after the first 15-20 minutes, takes a hold of the audience and doesn’t let go, literally until the credits start rolling. Even then, you’re bound to spend the rest of what’s left of the day arguing over which outcome you think really happened at the end.

With a wonderful cast, (Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page of Juno fame, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard to name a few), great script and a fantastic storyline with amazing twists, Nolan takes his audience into the world of dreams, where you’re never sure if you’d ever wake up again.

To my beloved friends

To me, friendship is defined, not by the amount of fun you have when you’re out and happy, but the amount of support they give you when you’re down. The ones who are always around for a good time may not necessarily be there when you’re in trouble. It’s the ones who stick by you no matter what anyone says about you – the ones who aren’t afraid to tell you you’re wrong, the ones who, even from afar, will try to help as much as they can whenever you need it, the ones who aren’t shy or scared to ask you outright how you’re doing when you’re sad, lonely and depressed. Those are the ones for keeps. Because although they can’t be there when you celebrate your birthday, or couldn’t make it for your wedding, you KNOW you can count on them when it really matters.

I think you people know who you are. Thank you for blessing me with your wonderful friendship.

What it truly means.

All those times, those "horrible" break-ups, getting cheated on, fights and cold shoulders with certain ex-friends. All those times, I thought my heart broke.

Silly me.

But then you know what they say: Ignorance is bliss. It truly was.

For me, it's like time stopped. I'm registering for my masters program tomorrow, but it feels like I'm going through the motions. The excitement I felt a few days ago is either gone or has found a good hiding place somewhere I can't find.

I'm being strong the only way I know how: to go through life as if I'm fine.

Now I know what it means, I can only count on my prayers and the support from my beloved family and amazing friends.

Please help me pray that everything will be ok.
