The Proton Resurgence Brought Back Painful Memories

I am currently binge-watching The Big Bang Theory on Netflix. Yes, the series has ended with 12 Seasons and a total of 279 episodes but it’s one of the best and biggest TV shows in recent history. Plus, I wasn’t able to watch all of it because we cut our cable eons ago to save money. Anywho! In Season 6, Episode 22 (133) titled “The Proton Resurgence” they featured a character named Professor Proton. Arthur Jeffries, Ph.D.—a.k.a. Professor Proton— was a former children’s science show host who was hired by Sheldon and Leonard to entertain them. There was one scene that caught me off guard which resulted in me not being able to process the entire episode because I was tearing up. Besides that, I also found myself fixed on one memory.

Being Forgotten: Chicharrón in Pixar’s “Coco” Teaches Us a Lesson

Whenever it’s revealed that I was raised by my abuelito (grandfather) and abuelita (grandmother) or laking-lolo’t lola, I would get positive reactions. They say that people raised by grandparents are very different. They’re good with older people, respectful, kind and so on. I really appreciate that but people who were raised by their grandparents are people, too. We have flaws, we make mistakes, and in my case, shot out several people in my life. *trying to live a positive life here Anyways, I’m saying this because one of my favourite films titled, “Coco” touched a chord. My abuelita and I would always watch it. She would also laugh once I start to sing along. And if you follow me on Instagram, I always share that it’s being shown on this channel or that channel. (It’s now on Netflix, too!) If you’ve seen it, I know you agree that “Coco” is a beautiful film.
