Almost a Decade


I was watching the news the other night and one phrase caught my attention. They were talking about how the Harry Potter movies have been captivating audiences for "almost a decade" now.

A DECADE?!!

I'M OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow how time flies. Harry Potter has a special place in my heart because for our first date, Nick and I saw the 1st Harry Potter movie (and not on DVD haha). Yep it was November 2001 and it had just come out that week! Of course we go to every movie that comes out now and I can't wait to go see the latest (hopefully tomorrow!).

Now the books are done but there is still that excitement of waiting for the next movie to come out. When the movies are over, it'll be a weird sad / empty / depressing feeling because I don't really want to close that chapter of my life.

I don't want it to end either. I was hoping she would start another series.

The Harry Potter stuff is pretty cool. Have you read Twilight yet? I couldn't put those down.

Yeah I have read all the Twilight books; and then read the arguments on "which one is better". They are so hard to compare!! Although if I HAD to declare the best of the 2, Harry Potter wins hands down!!!!

(not to mention the twilight movie was a big disappointment and you can never say that about HP).

I read all of the Twilight books! I knew the Twilight movie wasn't going to be great b/c they had such a miniscule budget. They don't seem comparable to me. I'm also curious to see how the last Twilight movie turns out and if they'll change the ending. I don't think the ending of the last book it really condusive to a movie... too much of a build up for no fighting.
