#6: Little Boxes…

on October 31, 2015

Song of the day- Little Boxes from the Box Troll movie.



I actually just realized that whenever I finish my major assignments for uni in September/early October there’s always a good movie showing to celebrate! And they’re unexpectedly more good than I ever imagined. This is my last backlog post and then we’re finally up to date! Yay!

For 2014: It was the Box Trolls (a 3D stop motion movie πŸ˜‰ I always like those kind of ones cause they really show the heart and effort put in to developing the film! Where animators spend countless hours and hours moving the characters bit by bit.

Here’s the trailer


And a review of the brilliant minds of behind the animation!

And for 2015: The Intern

Seeing this picture of Snoopy has reminded me that it’s not too far away until it’s the New Year release date! Those lucky Americans of course though get to see it before us (Australia). But the Peanuts Movie studio have been really smart about continuing the excitement of the movie despite its prolonged arrival.

For one, they’ve introduced the Snoopy Peanutize your character website ( which of course, I spent a few hours creating my character for its different seasons! How could you not?)

And then there was the adult wah wah machine! Just released this week but apparently this is what kids hear when adults talk. Very hilarious!

Word & theme of the day


Definition by Google 2015

Momentous occasions to me always start and end with little boxes. πŸ˜‰ Why? Because at the end of every journey, you pack up all the stuff you don’t needΒ anymore. You either archive or discard it. Same with starting a new journey, whether moving into college or your very first apartment they all use brown boxes πŸ˜‰Β Little boxes mark the momentous occassion that you’re about to start something new in your life or the end of a journey.

They carry things that are important to you for the new places that you’re going to. The items in there remind us of home, the places and people that we’ve met and from people who we care most about πŸ˜‰

Sometimes though, we can be afraid of the new journey ahead and may be reluctant to pack the boxes. Or we can be overjoyed and excited for what is yet to come. And I can’t say it any better than Snoopy…

Do look ahead and embrace the new chapter. But it’s also ok to have nostalgia as it shaped you to the person you are today. While, change is scary and everyone transitions in their own time- at the end of the day if you’ve packed your little boxes- you’ve already made the first step. πŸ˜‰
