Today, I am ignoring the temptation to lie on the couch, read blogs, or just wander around helplessly. Today, I am listening to Master Yoda’s wise words; Do or do not, there is no try.
Today, I have decided not to try to write, but to actually write. But in order to get myself more in the mindset, I need my writerly effects.
1. Attire. I need to be comfortable and cool during these hot days, so I chose to wear my tank top that says “Wandering.” To me, it can represent many things, but today it represents my wandering into/inside my book.
2. Accessories. In the previous picture, you can see I was wearing a OUAT Storybook necklace. How can wearing a book around your neck not make you wanna write? Also, I snapped on my “Authoress” and “Storybrooke” bracelets. I wear my “authoress” one every time I write. The Storybrooke seemed fitting to my mood today, so I chose that one, as well.
3. I need something yummy. I was craving some S’mores Oreos, so I grabbed a couple to tide me over until lunch. Also, I always make it a point to have a water bottle with me, but I was craving something more refreshing, so I chose my Strawberry Lemonade Sparkling Ice drink
Now, all I need to do is resist the temptation to go online and actually start typing, and I will be set for a writing day! XD
What are your “writerly effects?”
Hi everyone! Sorry for not posting in over a week – I got busy doing other things 😉
This is a post I’ve been planning for a while now. I’ve been super excited since the announcement of Frozen 2, but lately I’ve been feeling anti-Frozen because of my first requirement for Frozen 2:
I absolutely, positively, most definitely do not want Elsa to be gay. So many people are petitioning for Elsa to have a girlfriend in the next movie and it’s honestly making me sick – even Idina Menzel herself is for it! Elsa is perfect the way she is – she’s a character loved and obsessed over by thousands of people – she should just stay the way she is!
I’ll be extremely upset with Disney if they go through with this – so please, Disney, if you’re reading this – don’t do it.
My second wish for Frozen 2:
That Elsa has a love interest (not a girlfriend). I really want her to fall in love with a super handsome, super nice guy! She deserves it – she really does XD Don’t you think Jack Frost would be perfect? I think Disney and Dreamworks should team up just once…. XD
That they all have new costumes and don’t wear the same outfit and same styles throughout the entire movie. Come on – be realistic! I was so thankful they had new outfits in Frozen Fever, but please – how about a new style, Disney? 😉
Anna and Kristoff either need to be married or get married in the movie. I literally will die if this doesn’t happen. They love each other and I’m sure a lot of time will have passed, so they should be talking wedding plans, right? XD
That Kristoff sings more!! He has such an amazing voice and he hardly sings in Frozen or Frozen Fever – he needs to have a full song and maybe sing a duet with Anna – they need that, too! XD
Speaking of songs – I really want the songs to be AMAZING! They need to be powerful, emotional, maybe a fun one or two, and they just need to kill me basically LOL!
This is the last one – that the movie is all around OUTSTANDING! I know sequels can be hard, but I believe if they don’t rush into it (which I’m glad they aren’t doing), they can make some magic happen! ;D
So, those are my wishes for Frozen 2! What are yours?
Hi everyone! I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorite characters and movies that I feel don’t get enough appreciation or attention from me (and others). I’ll also of course be stating why, so expect some mild fangirl-ing XD
Ernest T. Bass from The Andy Griffith Show! Now, normally when I watch something funny, I’ll laugh the first few times I watch it and my laughs will suddenly subside and I’ll just smile or not even care anymore. But sometimes, something is so funny that I literally laugh every time I watch it – no matter how many times I’ve seen it! This is the case with Ernest T. Bass. He is a crazy, wild, mountain man, hillbilly who loves to throw rocks through windows and climb and jump around like a monkey – all the while laughing merrily! I just can’t get over him – he absolutely cracks me up! Laughing makes me feel good and definitely turns my day around, so I highly recommend watching Ernest T. Bass when you need a good laugh. That is, if you like that kind of thing ;D
The Cowardly Lion is another one of my favorites. I die each time he laughs or cries! It’s so hilarious – and when he “barks!” AGH!! The Cowardly Lion, just like Ernest T., makes me laugh every time I watch The Wizard of Oz! 😀
I’m sure many of you might hate me right now, but I really like Jar Jar Binks! I wouldn’t say I love him, but I really like him! I honestly don’t understand why people hate him so much. He’s just clumsy and prone to making mistakes – but aren’t a lot of people? I love how he walks and talks, and I’ll laugh when he makes mistakes and I feel bad for him when people get mad at him. I understand, it could be annoying and extremely frustrating to have him around all the time, but in the movies, I’ve always enjoyed him.
*dies* People. This – oh my gosh. This is seriously one of my all time favorite movies!
*returns from grabbing my Count of Monte Cristo bracelet*
The Count of Monte Cristo is an intense story full of revenge, romance, broken hearts, redemption – it just kills me, you guys! It’s one of those movies that you watch where afterwards, you feel dead. Just completely drained and like you can’t focus on anything else but the amazing movie you just watched.
It does have some thematic elements (unfortunately a lot of movies do), so make sure to talk with a parent before watching it 😉
But truly, it’s worth watching! It’s such an amazing story – I can hardly put it into words. *mentally tells mom we need to watch this movie again*
“It’s a rumor, a legend, a mystery! Something whispered in an alleyway or through a crack!”
Anastasia is a beautiful movie about a girl who has lost her memory and wants to find her real family. Dimitri, a con artist wanting money, gets “Anya” as she calls herself, to agree to portray as The Grand Duchess Anastasia who has been missing for several years after her whole family was killed (except for her grandmother in Paris 😉 ). It’s a mystery, a romance, and a musical! The songs are so powerful and emotional – one of which gives me chills just about every time I listen to it! *thinks, I need to listen to the soundtrack again…*
The only thing I don’t like about this movie is the villain, Rasputin. He’s absolutely disgusting. We skip the parts that are all about him cause it’s just too much. *ugh, now his song is in my head!!*
We actually just watched this movie last night! After watching it, I always think – man, that’s a really good movie!
Reign of Fire is about the world being destroyed and taken over by dragons. There are not many survivors in the world and even London is empty – except for the hundreds of dragons that live there. It’s a survival story and definitely worth watching! And, I just have to say, Christian Bale’s accent is amazing. And so is Gerard Butler’s. XD It’s also very sad, but not in the way that would make me cry. It’s just sad. 😉
I think the rest of the movies I have to show are all romances – oh boy! XD
Miss Potter is about the authoress, Beatrice Potter and her journey to becoming a best-selling author. It’s also a tragic romance. Oh gosh, so sad. It’s a very serious movie, but a great story! Oh, and Ewan McGregor sings a song in it, so that’s awesome XD
I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! It’s SO CONFUSING!!! LOLOL!
Seriously, this movie is insanely confusing to me, I don’t get how something that happens in it is even possible, but somehow it is. My mind just can’t wrap around it. XD
This is a love story about two people who live in different time periods, but somehow start writing letters to each other and form an attachment. It’s a beautiful movie and again, so confusing to me! I really wanna watch this now, too…
*dies* It- I- it’s just – *dies*
The Young Victoria is literally one of my all time favorite romance movies! The acting is superb, the costumes are gorgeous, and the story is just amazing. It’s all about Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Their meeting, how they fell in love, the struggles – I just love it. It’s an absolutely beautiful movie and makes me so happy (and yet, dead) after I watch it.
This movie also has some thematic elements in it, but easily skip-able 😉
Treasure Planet is one of Disney’s greatest movies! At least I feel that way LOL! I don’t think this movie gets nearly enough attention as it should. It’s a great story full of adventure, humor, and AMAZING songs! Whenever I’m listening to music and a song from this movie comes on, I always get so happy! Also, with that little chub nugget of adorableness (AKA, Morph), how could you not like this movie? XD
Everyone, this movie messed me up. In a very bad way. I was depressed pretty much the rest of the day after I watched it. I was crying after the movie ended. I died. (I actually was getting teary as I typed all that right now)
I’ve only watched this movie once so far, but it’s a very interesting story, tragic romance *bites lip*, and just – *sigh*. It’s a very good movie, I loved it. But the ending is terrible.
This movie also has a thematic element in it. I’m letting you all know this so you can let your parents know in case you wanna watch it. I don’t want them thinking I’m recommending bad movies to you! LOL!
Okay. Now that I’m dying over everything I just typed, I think I need to go continue reading my Amish romance book and maybe have some ice cream. XD
Do you love any of the characters or movies I listed? Did any of the movies sound interesting to you?
Ahem. Sorry for screaming, but it was quite necessary because ZOOTOPIA CAME OUT ON DVD TODAY!!!! AAAAGHH!!! *dies*
Seriously, you may not know this, but I am seriously in love with this movie. I’ve been counting down the days till the release (I think I’ve texted Emma almost every day the past few days, telling her how much longer until Zootopia XD ) FOREVER and now it’s finally here and I’m just… I’m just so happy… *cries* LOL! No, not really, but I am super happy ;D
My Judy and Nick Infinity Figures are posing with the movie- ISNT THE CASE SO CUTE?! I saw this movie twice in theaters- proof that I loved it. It’s just such an amazing movie. The story is great, intense, and it even gets scary at points (literally I was freaking out at one scene) and it’s super fun, funny, and heartwarming. I definitely believe it’s a must see! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed
VOICE CAST INTERVIEWS?! YESS!!! I love to see the voices of the characters- although I already know Ginnifer Goodwin since I watch OUAT and also Jason Bateman. I still can’t believe awesome Nick Wilde is little Jeb Carter in Little House on The Prairie… O_O
Okay, now for a question….
Do you love Zootopia as much as I do? Are you craving a donut, too? XD
