Tiring thoughts after a tiring day is just tiresome.

A weekend getaway after a whole lot of insecurities and anxiety with your favorite snacks and a perfect movie to ease you.

Forrest Gump


A spectacular movie by the wonderful actor Tom Hanks, watch the film and you just feel lighter, you feel that the world isn’t as complicated as it seems.

A coming of age movie that imparts lessons on love and accepting yourself as who you are, something that gives you hope and a Ferris wheel dream kiss to dream on.

Dead Poets Society


There would be a teacher whom we remember forever in our lives. One that inspired us, one whom we truly looked up to, one who made learning fun, one who made us want to be good people.

Watch the film to gather the courage to stand up on the table and shout out your inspirations.
