Widen primaries: The closing race between Sanders and Clinton, and voting system
It's been a mixed reaction after the last victory in Kentucky and Oregon. Both Trump and Sanders won Oregon while Clinton won the majority in Kentucky and the race to California in the Democratic primary is clashing, more than the republican primary. But there is still debate over the Sanders Campaign and how Clinton has so many delegates, so will easily win the Democratic nomination. Bill Press of CNN and Hilary Rosen, both of whom are Democrats, gone back and forth on the whole "but" word during Sanders' talk about condoning violence and the number of delegates Hilary has is enough to win over Bernie. Moreover, Bill mentions how the voting system is rigged and the votes are not received, not just for Bernie, but for both Trump and Hilary. Hilary has strongly disagreed with the voting system and how Bernie is "whining about the process." At this point, there is tension rising in the media over how Bernie should quit, yet he refuses because since he has won Washington state and Oregon, there is bound to be another victory in California. And he believes the voting system is rigged and sees it as a principle in order to keep running. While it is true that Sanders has over fifteen hundred delegates, as of right now on May 18th, there is no denying that the voting system is, in fact, rigged. Think of it like this: When you go to the ATM to withdraw cash, the screen asks you if you want a receipt. Obviously, you may want to choose "yes" on the screen before the machine gives you the money and identifies you based on your card name and account. In the voting booths, the problem is this: you have no proof for whom you voted. You are the only one who knows for whom you voted. No one else knows for whom you voted - and you have no proof. Why? Because you have no receipt. And even if you have eyewitnesses watching you as you pick a candidate, they'll probably won't even remember you when you first step into the booth due to thousands of people who are in line to cast their vote. That being said, since we have two more weeks before June, there is tension growing from within me, and there is hardly anything to add but to keep pressing onward.

Moving up from a spiral of contingencies
Every since my detox from procrastination, and drinking, I started to wonder if I've done the responsible thing and moving into new territory would be commendable for me. It's a quiet morning somewhere in Texas. The sun is out reflecting it's beam on the trees, freshly cut lawns, birds singing, and I'm looking out of the front door with a cup of coffee. I'm not used to this. I'm usually still asleep until the afternoon rolls by. Now, I'm lifting weights and drinking protein shakes and up by eleven. I usually eat frozen foods like pizza bites and canned soup from the cabinet. Now I'm eating foods freshly made by the fitness club in my town. I used to write bad high school poetry and essays with no hopes of publishing them. Now, I'm making an effort to keep a literary movement alive and going back into the world of acting as a profession. All of these are new changes I've been making and I'm wondering if making new changes will help me get out of my shell. The detox period was hell. Lots of fidgeting, punching walls, excruciating pain to get me off of the popular social media sites and mindless consumerism when in fact I can live off of those by dropping down my usual food intakes and spending a certain amount of time reading and exercising more and less drinking. And let's not forget about talking to people. Hi everybody! Okay, that's too modest. How about picking up on a topic already in progress? Yeah that works. Making changes is not really exciting when you get right down to it. In theory, it seems like a good idea and you get excited and motivated, but then when you start, you turn blink and look like an idiot. You also have to keep up and never say to yourself, "Oh, I don't know maybe some other time." The best way to combat this is to ask yourself, "What can I do?"

Which one are you: Tyler Durden or The Narrator?
You don't talk about the rules, but you're still interested in knowing what goes on in Fight Club. More importantly, the motifs the two main bad boys have when confronted with selfishness about consumerism and their quest for enlightenment, and the many actions of Project Mayhem. This week's Which Character involves a cult classic, based on the novel and would later turn into a film adaptation. More importantly, two badass men each with their own set of norms. So let's get on with it, shall we? Tyler Durden Tyler set forth into a social program by attacking consumerism, popular culture, and capitalism, while preaching about how to go beyond one's own abilities and beliefs. He is a rude dude with the occasional politeness, and his practice in Anarcho-Primitivism, and Buddhism shows him as an individual with integrity. While he is part of a split personality and a figure of the Narrator's psyche, he is no doubt a man who helps bring order and peace by wrecking havoc on those who inflict misery on the poor and working class who always wanted to do something with their lives. In Tyler We Trust. The Narrator The man with no name (Joe or jack) is a slave to the Ikea nesting instinct. Moreover, a victim of consumerism and everyman of society, doing whatever people throw at him. This is his life, and, with chronic insomnia and depression, ends one minute at a time. He is, however, a man with a heart and will help those people like Marla and Bob fulfill their needs. The Narrator changes when Project Mayhem goes out of control and becomes self-deluded by Tyler's orders. When too much is too much, He wants everything he ever wanted back to normal. While harsh and boring at first, The Narrator can be a typical man of support and acceptance. Which movie character represents you the most?

TU FUI, EGO ERIS (Silent Hill 3 analysis)
Most of the characters in stories are often weak at the start and have no clue where to go. That’s not as compared to strong leads who can go in blazing with no problems. When the story progresses, things unfold and the audience realizes why the presentation was set up. Questions are made like, “Why is this happening?”, and “What’s the point of that?” Silent Hill 3 is more than just a survival horror game with sickening effects and uncomfortable moments, It’s a coming-of-age tale. Growing up. That’s the adventure for Heather Mason. As soon as the game starts with the second cutscene, there’s a red filter on the screen and inside the fast food restaurant where Heather is. The color red signifies a bad omen or incoming death. Heather doesn’t realize it, but the game save icon pops up in certain areas in the game, and she narrates how it hurts her head every time she looks at it. She also reiterates pleasant communications with her father Harry (the main character from the first game), letting him know she’s on her way home from the mall, and how she defends herself when Douglas follows her. Heather is ill equipped and establishes a fear effect after she encounters the first monster in the game and throughout the first couple of hours. Even her narration in various explorations shows this. The antagonist, Claudia, is one of the sources to Heather’s upbringing. She wishes for a better paradise in Silent Hill, but is blinded by the fact that innocent lives should be shed for her own religious beliefs is wrongful, however, she is correct about Heather as she understands she will reveal her true self when one of the missionary monsters kills Harry. Now, Heather is a child with a hidden past, but in order to adapt her maturity, she must prepare herself when she ventures back into Silent Hill (Born and raised until Harry takes her with him) and stops Claudia. A few disturbing clues to add also is the blood on Heather’s beige jacket, the coat hanger item she picks up in the game, Harry’s notebook on adopting Heather, and a regurgitated god before the final boss fight. Now, Heather receives help from Douglas and Vincent, but it’s her memories and fears that accelerate her further. Just like in the Batman comics and movies, for example, the only way to overcome fear is to embrace it and let it thrive towards enemies. Heather has a fear of fire and mirrors (burned as Alyssa, and her own reality in a separate world), and fights her other self in the amusement park. She collects the lost memories and takes them as sign of recreation and mentality, knowing she has full confidence to stop the paradise nightmare. After she sees Harry’s corpse in the apartment, Heather falls into a state of denial, feeling stuck and not sure where to go. She defeats God, the final boss of the game, much like her father defeating the final boss from the first game, and showing she is now grown more aware of her survival and instincts. Tu fui, ego eris. “As you are, as I am: So you shall also be.” And so, in a dangerous, unfair world, where mock-ups and restrictions keep those from handling the pressure of the real world, hiding in disguise seems like the only way to live with the hole dug deeper, until fear reawakens the truth and moving forward overcomes guilt and knocks down the door into a more clear division.
