The Perks of Being a Wallflower: 4 Best Scenes to Relive
Very few beloved novels are as good onscreen as they are in print, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of them. It certainly helped that author Stephen Chbosky directed and wrote the coming-of-age movie. The casting was practically perfect, especially the core trio: Logan Lerman as the wallflower Charlie, Emma Watson as cool girl Sam, and Ezra Miller as the fabulous Patrick. With the movie premiering on HBO this week, I thought it’d be nice to take a look back at some of its most memorable scenes.
When Sam and Charlie each stand up on the back of a pickup truck speeding through a tunnel, their arms wild and free, “The Tunnel Song” on full blast. The song was Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” in the book, but they changed it to David Bowie’s “Heroes” in the movie. I guess that means the tunnel song can be anything you want it to be. What’s your tunnel song? Mine would be “Ribs” by Lorde on sad days and “Safe and Sound” by Capital Cities on happy days.
When Sam gives Charlie his first kiss even though she has a boyfriend, not because she delights in sending mixed signals, but because she wants his first kiss to be from someone who loves him. Because hers was from her dad’s boss when she was 11.
Whenever Patrick opens his mouth. He's wickedly funny, and his lines are always above average. Just watch the video.
When Charlie answers a heartbroken Sam in the best and most brutally honest way. "Why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we're nothing?"
The Perks of Being a Wallflower premieres November 22, 10 pm on HBO Signature. Catch it on HBO On Demand starting November 25.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
