...And this time is no exception.
Happy New Year to all! I hope that it has been going well for you so far, and that you've enjoyed your holidays. For those of you now back to school and work, I feel for you. I've been back for a week now.
I'm never entirely sure why I write these journals. I mean, I don't think anyone really ever reads them. Perhaps that's why I write them as rarely as I do.
Let's see... last year I acquired 50 new watchers, putting me over 300! So I've reached that milestone... whatever that means for me.
For those of you wondering, The Hobbit movie I went to see wasn't worth it. I mean, I'm glad I got the closure of finishing off the trilogy, but... it really shouldn't have been one. One, maybe two movies tops, not three.
If you want a good movie to see, I recommend Interstellar. I saw that movie on a whim with my friend who was really pestering me to see it, and I really
enjoyed it. A++, would watch it again. Phenomenal acting, directing, music score (Hans Zimmer always outdoes himself) overall great movie.
Christmas break this year was nice, but pretty short, just under two weeks. I miss the five week breaks of yesteryear. I'm glad, as is custom by now, to have received a stellar present from my good friend Icaron
She is so huggable! Saga's an amazing friend, and this plushie is an amazing gift. Thank you so much!
Which brings me to my next topic! I saw Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks a couple months back.... and then again... and then a third time, all in about a week! And I have to say, I love
Sunset Shimmer! The character development she went through in the movie was great. In the "Who was the main character?" debate about RR, I definitely
side with Sunset being the main character, not Twilight. Sunset has begun her personal growth trip, to the place where she should have, and deserves to be, as a princess (hopefully). So yes, while she (nor any pony) will ever dethrone Best Pony, aka Rainbow Dash
, from her top spot, Sunset Shimmer has come very close to my heart, and I cannot wait
for EQG 3 to come out! More Sunset Shimmer is what I need in my world. Also I highly recommend Rainbow Rocks to anyone and everyone! It's now on Netflix, so easy to access for many of us.
Well, aside from that, there's not really much else I want to say here. 2015 so far has been... sub par, for a variety of reasons. Let's just say I hope it gets better soon. Got invited to a wedding later this year though, which is nice.
I'll try to write more of these if there's any sort of demand for them. I hope all of you are enjoying your new year, not freezing too much in the cold weather, and are surviving through the longest pony hiatus yet!
