To everyone who knows his story, you’re a lucky one.Some will snarl at the thought of immortalizing a fictional character upon one’s very flesh.
But to the likes of us who get teary-eyed every time we see that part where Silver hugs James, or that part where he runs after his father or that one where he looks up at the night sky and sees that old cyborg. Not everyone can appreciate what “Treasure Planet” has told, but to me, it’s worth more that just a Disney cartoon.

The only time I get mushy about things is when typing about it is so worth it.That night after the very last screening of our film, my word for it was “surreal” (sue me if I have misused the word).Here is why I am happy:It was finally finished, it was finally done. Everything we have worked hard for finally reached its end and it was epic. All the hard work, blood, sweat and tears was all worth it and watching that film made me feel that I really can amount to something.
The sad part?It’s over. Mam Ja gave a speech that literally felt like everything was finally coming to an end and a new chapter will begin, a chapter in which I don’t belong to. She talked about moving on and looking back. Making (and possibly forgetting) memories. It’s sad because I felt like everyone was ready to move on, everyone was ready to go. When everyone has finally graduated, I’d probably be somewhere inside the campus thinking where I went wrong, and I’d just be another passing memory to the friends I have made, especially in this film.Not everyone knows this but I really have (thank you to Gio for the term) “Separation Issues”. I just hate having to part ways with people that’s why I keep my friends to a minimum. But in this film, I have met a family, I have made a family.Within the time we have spent together, we all did crazy shit together. Ate like pigs together, joked like assholes together, laughed like crazy together and enjoyed the time together. We may have shed tears, but damn, it was so worth it.All those drooling late nights where you’d just find yourself lying on the muddy floor, ready to sleep. The times when we just told stories that had nothing to do with the film. Even those moments where we all started sharing something only those who are close to us knows.Don’t even get me started on the teamwork we all had. Only we know what it meant.
I don’t know, maybe I just don’t want to be forgotten when everyone has graduated and started working while I’m stuck studying Lit or something.I was happy, I am happy.You guys don’t know how happy you have made me.and everyone fuckin’ knows I’m not a happy person.Well, maybe I am… but that is not the point.I just consider each and every numbskull in dunkin’ domats, family.and after time has passed, when everyone has forgotten what we did. We will never forget what we had.Well that’s my opinion anyway.
