30 Days of Gratitude--Days 11-15

Today I'm grateful for . . . variety. A variety in writing, books, movies, food, chocolate, friends, you name it! While I have favorites of all of these things (fantasy stories, Harry Potter, book adaptations, sushi, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, my BFF Kirsten) I don't think I ever fall into a rut. It'd be a very boring world if all we could eat or read or experience were our favorite things.

Today I'm grateful for . . . goofiness. My friends and I are always laughing. Of course we have "serious" times, or times where we have in-depth conversations, but we're always joking around and teasing each other (especially when Avery's around).

Today I'm grateful for . . . movies. Kirsten and I just had a movie marathon. We watched "The Hunger Games" (something we both decided we needed to watch again before the "Catching Fire" premiere next week), "The Host," and "Mean Girls." We also watched tons of "Friends" episodes. Movies that will have to wait until next week are "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "Julie & Julia," and "Ocean's Eleven."

Today I'm grateful for . . . YouTube. I love to look up new trailers for movies that are coming out, or interviews with Jennifer Lawrence, or Taylor Swift music videos. Sometimes I reward myself with YouTube time if I've met my word count goal for the day. ;)

Today I'm grateful for . . . write-ins. I get most of my writing done at write-ins during NaNoWriMo. I wrote 3,700 words yesterday at the most recent write-in and now I'm back on track!

I love this post, both because it's well-written and because I love happy things.
Reese's cups are my favorite, too.
And, it's so cool that you're doing NaNoWriMo! I thought of doing it, but I'm pretty sure I would fail miserably. :)

I hear you on variety. I have a really tough time picking favorites of anything since I love so many different things. Great list.

Grrr. I totally had this open to comment the other day and then my browser crashed. You are so goofy in the variety of your movie and YouTube viewing at write-ins. Ha! I just used all your things in a sentence. Heheheheh.

@Everyone Thanks for the comments! :D

@Lit Maggie Thanks! :D And you should totally do NaNoWriMo. Even if you don't meet your goal (though most everyone does) it's still a great push to write! :)

Ron just told me he wants to see Catching Fire. I told him he should go to the midnight premiere with you (I assumed you are going to the midnight premiere!). I couldn't sell him on it, though. Have fun.

Boquinha said...

The movie would be ending right before his usual time to wake up!

@Boquinha, yeah, heh heh. He says he's going to a matinee next Tuesday.
