Books, Life, Movies

Happy 2013!

Oh, the first post of the year is always the hardest.

So I will keep this short.

My sister and I have a new blog! ūüėÄ It’s a joint blog in fact. We’ve decided to both do a 365-day project for 2013. Because we’re bored like that. Anyway, it’s here:

Zara & Ida’s 365 day project

In other news, I thought¬†Sosy Problems would be my last movie of 2012 but it turned out that¬†The Hobbit was showing in the IMAX theatre so that became my last movie of 2012. Obviously, they’re two incredibly different films and I imagine that there aren’t too many people who would see both movies in one weekend. But I am mentioning it because I liked them both. And for the same reason. I mean, that they were exactly what I expected them to be.¬†Sosy Problems was ridiculous fluff that nobody should take seriously (and I really hope nobody does), I mean, it was bordering on¬†Sex and the City 2 territory (minus the adult themes). And¬†The Hobbit was a movie with fantastic vistas, battle scenes, special effects and musical scoring. I mean, the scene where the dwarves sang took my breath away.

And there you go, Sosy Problems and The Hobbit mentioned in the same paragraph (with a cameo of Sex and the City 2). I wonder if some people will find that offensive.

In more unrelated news, I go back to work tomorrow and things go back to normal, presumably. Not that I can define what “normal” is unless someone tells me that it’s just a synonym of “boring”.

And in even more unrelated news, the plastic container of peanut brittle that’s sitting behind me in my “new” computer chair just fell to the floor. I better pick it up.

Oh! Also, it’s a new year, which means I have to start a new reading list. So for 2012, I was able to read… 13 books. I guess it’s not that many but like I said, it’s better than the zero books I was able to read in 2011 and so many years before that. Anyway, for 2013, I’m going to be a bit more realistic with my reading goal and say that I hope to read… 20 books.

Twenty. It shouldn’t be too hard, especially when I finally catch up with watching all the episodes of¬†Castle. It’s really my addiction to TV shows that keep me from reading. But I think that’s a common thing. Anyway, I’m actually in the middle of reading¬†Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Yup, you guessed it right. I’m trying to read the entire¬†Harry Potter¬†series again. Just because the last time I actually read them (at least, the first 4 books) was in high school and though I’ve seen the movies several times, I would like to review all the details. As for¬†A Clash of Kings, it got a bit too heavy and difficult for me to read, which is why I took a break from it and started reading¬†Harry Potter again, but I’m sure I’ll get around to it sometime this year. Perhaps, when season 3 of¬†Game of Thrones in HBO is out.
