Hey guys! It’s time for another throwback, and another Manifest -themed one at that! When thinking about what to do this time, I decided to go with this particular day at school this time last year (like, probably this time last year exactly). For some reason, this memory stands out more than most of the things that happened last year, and even though it was kinda sad, it does make me laugh now. You’ll understand what I mean!
That Time I Realized I Probably Shouldn’t Watch Sad Things In Public
If you’re a follower of this blog, then you know I’m a crier, especially when it comes to TV/games/books/etc. Sometimes it feels weird being upset about fictional things, but it honestly makes sense. Growing up, and especially when I was in high school, I didn’t have anyone I felt like I could be myself around. I didn’t have many friends. I was constantly spending time reading or playing video games, to the point where fictional characters became my friends. Maybe I have some sort of mental issue, I don’t know, haha! But the point is, I cry about fictional things.
Manifest is one of those fictional things, and they know how to hit you in the feels. This time last year, I was going through the show for the first time. My sister was in season three while I was in season two, and she warned me that the last few episodes of season 2 were pretty sad. I though, “how bad could it be?”
Then again, I always think that, and I’m always proven wrong, haha! Anyways, I remember this particular day I was at school, and it was a day where I spent most of the day there. I wasn’t feeling well, so I decided to give up homework for the day since I was pretty caught up with everything, and I went to the cafe to get something to eat. Now, the cafe is one of the most populated places on campus, so it was pretty crowded. But I sat down and turned on Manifest on my phone. Which ones did I watch? The last two to three episodes of season two. And was I proven wrong about how bad it could be? Um, yes? I laugh now, because all these people were around, and I’m literally sitting there in the middle of the cafe trying hard not to cry. If you’ve never seen this show, let’s just say my favorite character’s life and my OTP (One True Pairing) was at stake, haha! And if you have seen it, and you didn’t think it was sad….HOW? That’s one thing I can’t imagine…watching a show without being sad about it. My one consolation about getting upset about fictional things is that studies actually show people who do tend to have higher levels of empathy. I guess that’s a good thing?
What do you think about this throwback? Let me know in the comments below! And as always, God bless y’all and have a wonderful night!
Note: If you watch Manifest, and have seen the newest episodes, please do not comment about them! Due to my chaotic schedule, I haven’t been able to watch them all, so I don’t want any spoilers!
