Sam Sihite : There are enough comments praising the heartfelt story so im just gonna say: BRUH THAT ANIMATION IS SMOOTHER THAN THE TEARS RUNNING DOWN MY CHEEKS. Holy CRAP. Excellent use of rim lighting, nothing feels weird or disjointed, everything's perfect!!

Three Cuties Vlogs : I love my father Make this 👇Blue if you love your father

MrLittlelawyer : I know this. In a very real sense I am this girl right now. It is the moment in my story right before the father dies, but in my case, I'm afraid it will be my grandfather. I've failed right now, having left a major in engineering at a very prestigious engineering university after 3 years (you'd probably know the name, honestly). I left mostly over a slowly dying GPA and financial responsibilities that I couldn't keep up. I pushed away all things to pursue this degree- social life, friends, entertainment and even family sometimes, and still struggled. The journey pictured in this short is NOT easy. I'm now 22. My grandfather, the engineer who inspired me, is in pretty bad health. I know he won't last too much longer. I've got about 3.5 years remaining on my enlistment in the US military, which was my backup plan. I'm not standing still though, I'm not stagnating, I'm lying in wait. I'm putting my finances in order, saving, and preparing for what is to come. I'm getting into routines, becoming more disciplined by the day, and learning to live a more healthy lifestyle. I know I'm smart enough to do it, I always was, but I didn't know how to live as I should have then. I didn't know how to balance myself or stay disciplined. On Jan 2, 2023, I will begin again. I'll finish then too, with flying colors. From there, I'll go to the stars one day. My inspirations and constant support, my grandfather, my father, even my mother, probably won't see all the things I'll do, but I'll carry them with me. I'll be no different than the first men through this way, explorers and voyagers of the past, and I'll take that torch. I know this. Thank you TAIKO studios. Thank you so much. I have not cried so hard in a very long time. Not even when I was in basic training. You've reminded me where I'm going and strengthened my resolve to reach the goal all the more. P.S. And to those of you just scrolling by, I'm really just posting this as a note to myself, which I know I'll find again someday. A message of remembrance and encouragement were written in the spur of the moment. I appreciate that you've read it to this point though, and I hope that one day you'll hear of me again. Thanks for listening to someone who is, at the moment, a nobody.
