Description I guess it's not completely normal, but I'm trying to stay positive even with all the crazy stuff that's been going on. Running helps a lot, but too bad Daniel doesn't agree.

Running For Life is the one-hundred seventy-fifth video in the lonelygirl15 video series.


Jonas: (yawning) So it's morning, and uh... (normally) Sorry. And I'm worried about Daniel. 'Cause uh...

Daniel: (lying in bed and mumbling sleepily) Shut up, I'm sleeping.

Jonas: See what I'm talking about? He hasn't done anything useful since we got here, and all he does is sleep all day, and then at night he reads comic books, and, uh, drinks. A lot. So let's go get him. (Jonas walks over to Daniel, still in bed.) Beast! Daniel, wake up!

Daniel: No...

Jonas: I know that I heard you, so you're up, you're awake, come on, let's, we're going for a run.

Daniel: Correction: You're going for a run.

Jonas: No, come on man, I want to go for a run with you, it'll wake you up, it'll feel good.

Daniel: Ugghhh... (Jonas apparently opens a window or the curtains, because Daniel is suddenly bathed in blinding white light, and then Jonas makes an odd noise.) Oh my God...

Jonas: Work off the hangover... Eh? Eh?

Daniel: Aw, no man, I feel fine. Ughhh... (Music begins to play.) Shut up, it's so loud, please.

(Cut to a shot of outdoor scenery. Jonas holds the camera, so the view bumps around as he runs.)

Jonas: Nothing like this, you know? Fill your lungs with that air? (takes a deep breath) Ahh! Look at that. (Jonas pans around to show the mountains.) It's awesome. Okay, so you're probably wondering why I'm always so chipper and upbeat, like maybe it's... fake. Well, the truth is, it is. (scoffs) Kind of. It's an act, a little bit. But not really. The thing is is that you can't, you can't choose what life throws at you. You can only choose how, how you react to the things that are happening to you, and I mean I'm not happy about my aunt, I'm not happy about my parents. I'm not happy about a lot of things, but, you know, I, I get up in the morning and I go run, and I face the day, and I face my problems, and I try to make the best out of them. And Daniel, well, he chooses to sleep... and drink. But you know, I, I know he hasn't always been like that, and I'm not giving up on him. I just think he needs help. I know he'll get back to his old form, eventually. 'Till then, I'm going to go enjoy the rest of this day. Later.
