Prof. Datar of our Anthropology class had us trace our family tree as far and as wide as we could.
Unfortunately, I had to cram my assignment because of thesis. But hey, I mad it to five generations and a dozen other branches. That’s pretty good for someone who did it all in three days.
I had mixed emotions with this assignment. On one had, I got to see how I am really related to my relatives. You know, the people you know are related to you but can’t exactly tell how. Now I know we share a great grandmother or something
On the other hand, I failed to include my grandfather’s half-brother (because he can’t remember his name), and my adopted aunt’s myriad of lovers and kids from different fathers (because Papa doesn’t like to talk about it).
In the end, the ones that made me think of the most are the ones at the top of the tree: the great grandparents who started it all. Who are they? What did they do for a living? How was life like during their time?
I managed to document this much in three days. This makes me curious about how much I can find out if I had more time.

I took a much-needed break and watched Struck by Lightning today.
When I first saw Chris Colfer on Glee and watched his interviews, I could see a big difference between Kurt Hummel and the actor himself. So I wasn’t surprised when I heard that he wrote a movie and starred in it.
I’ve read a lot of negative reviews about the movie; that it was narcissistic of Chris Colfer to star in it; that it was another dark high school dramedy that no one wants to watch; that the main character, Carson, was not endearing at all.
The latter comment really irked me.
It reminded me of that time in 3rd year when I bought and read a copy of JD Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye.
I hated it. I thought Holden Caulfield was a brat who didn’t care much about himself or others (though it is true that most adults are phonies
It was much later when I realized that it’s not always about liking the main character, or disliking the villain. It’s not about the setting, or the ending.
It’s about the story. It’s about making you realize things. It’s about making you see that there is a world out there that is better/worse than yours, but still kinda the same. Am I making sense?
So yes, I liked the film. I don’t care what the
elderly critics say about it. I highly recommend people to see this, especially the younger ones who are still deciding on their futures.
