Another year has come and gone. I really thought that 2014 would be a big year of change for me, but in reality it turned into more of the same. Change is on the horizon, and rather than depending on it for happiness, I’m moving forward and promising myself that I will enjoy life. Besides, there were some great new releasees this last year. Favorite Movie — Guardians of the Galaxy I wanted.
Read Dune – Actually, I’m not sure why I haven’t yet. I love the mini-series. The book has to be better. Read a ridiculous romance novel – I’ve never done it, because I reach a point where I start to question what I’m doing with my life and why I am bothering with this. I think there are romances worth reading out there, and I will find one that captures me.
A couple of weeks ago I ended up with a low-grade flu. Since I was good for nothing other than sprawling on the couch and sipping juice, it seemed like a great opportunity to marathon all 8 Harry Potter films in one weekend. Watching the movies in close succession brought some interesting perceptions. Before I jump into those, a few stipulations. 1) I am a Potterhead, converted to the books.
Farewell, 2013. You brought some great things, and you left me frustratingly stagnant in others. But I went to 15 movies this year and I’m finishing out the year with a trip to The Lion King. So I can’t complain. On to 2014! I enjoyed last year’s recap so let’s recap my 2013 favorite discoveries. Favorite Movie – Frozen I saw a lot of movies I really enjoyed this year, many that.
I have a problem: I love books. Nothing excites me more than dissolving into a fantasy land, falling in love with characters, and becoming fully engulfed in another world. The problem is that it’s very, very hard for me to do that successfully. I’ve had a year full of book starting, worse than I’ve had for a long time. It got so bad I stopped marking books on GoodReads as.
