The one thing I love most about movies is how they can take me away to a completely different world than the one I’m living in. How, even if only for a couple of hours, I am carried away to a place where I don’t have to worry about school, work, money, my future and about a thousand other things that I think about every 10 seconds of the day.

These movies I’m speaking of seem to be able to spark this feeling in my memory. The feeling like I’m recalling something from my childhood. Not a specific event, but just that feeling of a good memory, a really good memory. A moment in my life when everything was perfect and I didn’t have a single worry in the world. The great thing about these movies is that they trigger this feeling, a feeling that doesn’t come that often on its own, and make it last for the entire span of the movie.

The part that puzzles me about this is it doesn’t have to be a fantasy, or some unbelievable tale. It could be as simple as a guy and a girl meeting in some regular town, that’s all it takes – and I’m lifted out of my world and I imagine that I am some character in a movie whose only problem is figuring out where he wants to eat dinner that night.

I’m sure I sound pretty childish, like I can’t handle normal responsibilities or that I’m just really lazy. But really, all I really want is to just not worry about anything for a while. I don’t want to be rich, I just want to be able to go and do as I please for a few years – or the rest of my life.
