“God, we wasted so many days.”
Of course this movie makes me sad because it makes me think so much of Colin but it also makes me appreciate my life so much more for some reason. I can’t even explain why but there are just very small moments, like Elio in the lake with the Star of David necklace in his mouth or the inverted color flashbacks, that just make me think of how beautiful some small, mundane things can be. As depressed as I may get sometimes I do love my life and I know that it will only get better, going to college next year and everything, and even though my only experience was very painful, the feeling of falling in love is so fueling and beautiful and I know I’ll have many more chances at love and one day Colin will just be a faint, somber memory.
