Hello readers, I hope you’re enjoying your summers. I have spent the past few days reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. She is also the author of the wildly inspirational blog– The Happiness Project. She is inspiring me to stop fighting my nature…
I really, really like to make lists. When I was in high school, I kept a small notebook full of random lists; playlists, my favorite memories, shows I’d seen, things to look forward to, etc. I think that list making should be a vital component of my blog. Nerdythings is still a baby, so I’m still learning. I think I will try to do a weekly list.
I’m going to start with a classic, and I’d love to hear your own versions of this list in the comments.
AHEM. My favorite movies: (right now)
1. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
2. Star Trek (2009)
3. In the Land of Women
5. Annie Hall
6. Practical Magic
7. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
8. Into the Wild
9. The Art of Traveling
10. Star Wars Episodes II (shut up) and IV
Writing that list took me a long time. That’s why I cheated on number ten. I very nearly had a couple breakdowns. Choosing ten movies for which to proclaim my love and then not even mentioning the rest? What about the movies I watched until the VHS tape was too hot to touch? What about those films that I put on every single time I stayed home sick throughout grade school? What about the ones that made me cry? Or the ones with good looking casts? What a cruel post…
Movies that came really close: (Is this cheating? Don’t care.)
