Spider-Man: Far From Home

Celebrating Our 59th Monthsary with Spider-Man: Far From Home, a Review

We just celebrated our 59th Monthsary. I can’t believe it’s been almost 5 years since Mahal wooed my entire family to pay his respect and ask for permission to exclusively date me.

We really didn’t have anything planned because both Mahal and I are so busy. He’s graduating from his DTI course this week and he’s finishing his requirements while I’m busy doing client work, farm stuff, and taking care of Tuz and our tiny home.

Years passed and I’d still watch it when I feel sad; when I feel inspired; when I want to be inspired; when I feel happy… basically no matter what my mood is. I just tear up with this movie no matter how many times I’ve already watched it and it always makes me feel like everything is alright with the world after indulging myself with its heartwarming story.
