We all fantasize about things. About how things could be if we only did something differently. And we all have that "what if?' encoded in our brains. What if I could actually finish writing this paragraph? What if I was actually able to put my thoughts on paper in a clever yet easy to understand way? Well, you know what they say: we are what we do repeatedly, so if you constantly keep finding excuses for doing something tomorrow instead of today, well then, you are simply lazy. You want to do something? Do it now. Don't wait. But I'm getting a little off topic right here...

Ever see a movie with an ending where the guy gets the girl and they walk fly away together to the city of their dreams? Or have you seen any of the classic westerns, where the cowboy rides off into the sunset? Well, let me tell you something about those endings: they're bullshit! Take the cowboy for an example, the sun is almost set, he will have to camp right outside the town he just left. And the couple, you might be asking... Well, the couple will still have their fair share of arguments. And it won't be all milk and honey for them, they still have to work, do the dishes and laundry, unless they're both filthy rich. And even if they are, that beautiful romance of theirs will fade at one point. Presumably soon. That's why I liked the ending of the TV series Californication (quick link to see it here, or you can download a pirated copy of it) - Hank didn't get his one and only, yet. But it was a start. It was a beginning to something bigger, it was a start to period of time when he'd make everything he can to keep Karen happy. Will he though?

We can all romanticize about whatever we want, but none of it will ever happen in the exact way we want it to. That cool thing you just watched that cool guy do in that movie? Well, it's just a movie. Don't expect it to happen in actual real life.
