My First Ramble: Frozen

First of all, please excuse my awful grammar! My grammar checker (A.K.A my mom) was super busy and didn't have time to grammar check it so in advanced I'm sorry for any mistakes. 

So I hope that you have seen Frozen by now. It's been a huge hit and so first of all I would like to say that I very much liked the movie. It was great, the animation was incredible and Anna was funny. Plus there was a very hilarious snow man named Olaf. Seriously the movie has some awesome, funny parts. 

But there are a few things that don't make sense and don't add up. Such as: how did Elsa get her power? Yes she was born with it but is a genetics thing? Is it passed down from generation to generation? And what about poor Anna who sings Do You Want to Build a Snow Man in front of her sister's door. Did Elsa never leave her room? How did she get food? Did the servants know about her power? And what happened to Kristoff's parents? 

And I am so sorry but I can't help but compare Frozen to Tangled. They truly did an awesome job on that movie and yet it seems like no one gives it much credit while Frozen is instantly a life long classic. 

Has anyone seen the Story of Frozen? I thought it was very interesting. I even watched it three times. But when I went to talk to my mom about it she gave me a different opinion. Yes it was cool to see how personal the movie was to all the people who worked on it but it also made it so that the movie meant so much to the people that it didn't mean so much to some people who watched it. Me included. Sure I thought Let it Go is a super cool song. But that moment when Elsa sang it didn't bring shivers up my arms. And I felt like I didn't know eboght about Elsa to connect emotionally with her in the first place. Anna was good but I feel like they could have made the movie so much better if they had only fleshed the characters out a little more and maybe explained a few things too. What I thought was very well done in the movie was that twist ending... I will say no more in case any of you haven't seen it yet. Kristoff was good too. I liked how Anna and Kristoff started off as friends and slowly became closer to each other. 

The Story of Frozen really high lighted how amazing Disney's research group is. They went to Norway and learned the culture. What was cool to me is that they managed to capture Norway in such a great way. Not to mention the animator a were sent out to (I can't remember the exact place) but to a location with lots and lots of snow so that they could see how the snow moved and reacted to certain things. Which then made their animated snow very realistic and beautiful. 

So that's really all the thoughts I have on that movie. Don't get me wrong, it was great for a cute and nice Disney movie but I would have liked to see a little more depth. (And this is all coming from a writer who loves and craves character and plot depth.) 

Thanks for taking the time to read all this and I hope that you enjoyed the movie for what they made it to be. :):)

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
