I have a serious addiction to Sex and the City. When I say serious I don’t just mean I love it, I mean I LOVE IT! I have watched the movie I don’t know how many times. I am watching it right now because it is on tv, which shouldn’t matter because I own the movie, but still I’m making us watch it. I blame my bfffff and my roomie for getting me into this. I just feel so fabulous when I watch and it makes me want to strive to be fabulous everyday. Not only do I love it because it is so into style and fashion, but I also love the friendship dynamic the four girls have AND I love how Carrie Bradshaw is a writer. I just want to be her. Can I please just move to Manhattan, dress expensive, and be a writer please? Thank you! The other reason I love watching the movie over and over again is since I know it by heart I can multitask while watching it, like writing this blog. It is good background for me, and good motivation to write so I can feel like Carrie Bradshaw. I know, I’m lame, but that’s okay!
I ❤ SATC
In the spirit of Halloween, I suppose it’s a good time to confess that I am a total Harry Potter nerd, like completely. I’ve read all the books, a few of them twice, and seen all of the movies countless times. I know almost all the lines, all of the characters, and everything. I told you, I am a nerd. I have reasons though. Obviously the entire series has an awesome storyline, but it is just the whole series as an art form that amazes me. J.K. Rowling is an artist and what she created truly is a masterpiece. She created an entire new world. Yes many authors do this with their stories, they draw you in and for a little time period you leave your troubles behind and fall into the words, but Rowling did this and kept it up for the entire seven book series, each book growing larger than the previous until the last few. I remember reading them when I was younger and feeling so proud of myself for finishing these large books, but in reality it was more like watching a movie in your head, that is how vivid Rowling wrote this story. This world she created had its own language, locations, its own schooling system, laws, law enforcement, everything. She stayed so consistent that after reading the books and the entire series you were pretty much fluent in this world as if it could be a real place. I admire her imagination and wish that I could think of something this detailed and to keep it going for so long. I would love to sit and pick Rowling’s brain to see how she wrote, did she plan, brainstorm, or just sit and write? Did she know how the story would end in the beginning or did she make it and change it as she went along? Again it just amazes me.
So yes, I am a serious Harry Potter nerd, a Potter Enthusiast if I had to label myself, and that’s okay with me!
