Until the Very End

Last night I went and saw the midnight premier of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and I am just sd;fkljs;dfkja;dkjf;sdkjf!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D

I went with Andrew, Kwadwo, and Becky, and before the show we stopped by Walgreens. They had a 10 for 10$ deal on candy so we stocked up on that and then we also pigged out on popcorn and icees at the theater. Hey, every girl needs to eat 5,000 calories in one night every now and then! :P

The movie itself was so amazing!! <3 While Part 1 was more of “running around in the forest and nothing is really happening”, Part 2 was just non-stop action. There really weren’t any dull moments so I was really interested the last time. Part 1 was great the first time I saw it, but I didn’t think it held up the times I saw it afterwards; this movie I think will.

The movie really stayed true to the book. I think this was probably the most important thing for me; the books are already perfect and in the other movies when they tried to change things up, I didn’t think it worked. They kept my favorite quotes in there, the little scenes that I liked, and I loved the way they did Snape’s thoughts in the penseive. The parts that made me tear up in the books even made me tear up in the movie. <3

This was the third midnight showing I’ve been to for the Harry Potter movies and they’ve all been a great big nerdfest, which is the best. There’s just something about sitting in a packed theater with a bunch of nerds just like you cracking up and cheering at the same moments that makes it even better.

So while I’m so happy that they did a great job with the movie, I’m so, so sad that it’s all over. I was walking out of the theater and realized I’ll never have that feeling again. D: It’s really all cheesy and whatnot, but I love Harry Potter, and it’s just…over. No more books or movies. That’s it. :/

Thoughts about the movie, if you’ve seen it?

aaaaaaand, if you haven’t noticed, new layout! And guess what, I did it all by myself! Haha, well, partly. I used Georgie’s WordPress Theme tutorial for the basics, and then I edited it to the best of my ability. I’m not real familiar with CSS, so that took me a while to finally be able to do what I wanted with it, but I think it turned out pretty good for my first time, no? (You can be honest with me.)

There are some little issues that I still need to fix; for some reason the font in my sidebar and the font in my content (like posts and overall site content) are different sizes. I thought it might’ve been in the CSS, but I couldn’t find anything fixed thanks to Chelsea! Also, the comments link isn’t working. It shows the correct number of comments and you can click the link, but it won’t direct you to the comment section. Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

I haven’t forgotten about my Eurotrip posts either, I’m currently working on the first one. :)

A New Kind of Summer

Since Friday, things have been looking up a lot more. I still miss my grandpap, but I’m not randomly breaking down and crying anymore. My parents came back Sunday, and they said my grandma was doing great.They took her out to eat and she was so excited that she could now just go out without worrying about leaving my grandpap at home by himself. She wanted to go out again the next day for lunch, haha.

I’m not sure why, but this summer for me has been extremely exhausting. My trip to Europe I knew would be tiring, but I just don’t think I ever really recovered from it. I slept a lot the week after, but I also started my babysitting job which really drains me. I guess it’s this heat too; it’s over 100°F outside right now. :o

I guess usually over summer break I just lounge around and don’t really do anything with myself, and this summer I haven’t done that a whole lot. I’ve traveled a lot: two and a half weeks in Europe, and almost all of last week in Pennsylvania for pappap’s funeral. I babysit four kids (all under 5) twice a week, 8:00 – 1:30, and I’ve been keeping really active. I’ve been playing a lot of tennis with my friends and have been going swimming or just hanging out with friends. Nonetheless, I’m glad I’m actually doing things this summer.

I decided that I’m going to make a scrapbook of my trip to Europe. I used to be really into scrapbooking, and then I kinda just stopped. It’s really time consuming and I get frustrated when things don’t look perfect. So, I bought a kit and scrapbook and I plan to start working on that pretty soon. I’ve also been meaning to start writing posts about my trip. I think my next post will be one of those. I just need to gather my thoughts.

In other news, I got my scores back finally from my AP English Language and Composition Exam I took back in May. You may (or may not) remember me talking about it being extremely hard but I got a three on it! It was out of five, five being the best, and if you score a three, four, or five you get college credit. I wish I would’ve done a little better, but I’m just glad I got college credit.

Also, I’ve decided to do away with affiliates and instead just create a link page with all the blogs I read, like, and whatnot. So if you used to be an affiliate, you may keep my link up or you may take it down. I moved almost all of my affiliates to the link page. It’s up to you.

I feel like I’m just all over the place right now.
