Random Sunday thoughts from watching TV shows

I've been watching The Walking Dead and funny as it may be, I'm scared for their lives. That's how it's always been for me. I read books, I watch movies or tv shows and I get attached. Once they have me, I'm with them until the end, and perhaps for even longer than that. 

For those who are pop culture-impaired, this show is about a world (funny how it's only in the US) overran by zombies. Everyone is infected and those who haven't turned are struggling to survive. Just another apocalypse.

Of course, it goes without saying, that people keep dying. They get shot, bit, eaten alive, and anything else you can think of. Main characters keep disappearing, to be replaced by others. After all, the show has to go on.

So what is the point of all this? It's like life. If you don't get it, come talk to me :)


Loss

Hello again. Happy new year. And I'm back. A lot of things have happened and I'll write about them when I can. For now, I have something on my mind. A note I wrote a while back but didn't get to finish.

I lost a phone a few months ago. An old Nokia fliptop that was my dad's from years ago. It had lived a good life and had served me well the past few months before that. Losing it didn't bother me not just because of that but other reasons, too. One of them being that I wasn't worried about the contact numbers. All the important ones, I still had them. All the important ones, will get in touch if they wanted to. 

Moving to Africa and starting anew, I have lost more than a phone. More than the clothes and things I decided to leave behind. But it's ok, I'm ok. The important ones, are with me or will find me.
