I went to the midnight premiere of the Hunger Games movie with 5 other kids from my youth group last Thursday night! It was fun to hang out with them and chill in the movie place for 5 hours waiting in line. That's what I love about premieres, you get to hang out, just chill and wait for your movie. Plus you make a lot of new friends. Anyways, we were waiting and about 2 hours in, they sat us in another auditorium to get more people into the lobby. And while we were waiting, they just put on another movie! So we got to watch 2 movies in one night. We watched This Means War with Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine. The movie was basically perfect and really funny to me for some reason. It was quirky and had action scenes which is, you know, great. I like those movies. I'm strange and you probably wouldn't pick me for loving action movies…but I do. And then we watched the Hunger Games which was fantastic as well. Obviously the book was better, but the movie was such a great adaption. I thought I wouldn't like the actors they picked for each character, but it ended up to be very good. There is a very long list of movies I want to see…
Friday was relaxing and enjoyable. I went to lunch with one of my good friends who was my small group leader for 3 years in high school and also taught at my high school. I don't really know how to explain our friendship because she's like 7 years older than me, but we are really close. I tried Vietnamese food for the first time and it was surprisingly good! Later that night I didn't really do anything, but I did end up watching The Descendants. I don't really know what to say about the film, it was good, yet in a really simple way. George Clooney was great in it and I'm not surprised he got all of those nominations.
Saturday, I went antique shopping with two of my friends and we found the cutest bookstore. It had a ladder that slides to get books on the top shelves and we took (totally staged) photos. It was so much fun. And then later that day I worked on cleaning my bike--oh, did I mention I got a bike?! Yes. Its a vintage schwinn and its red. It's lovely. I think I'm going to name it 'Ruby.' :) Anyways, I continued working on it on Sunday because it was kind of rusty. The little neighbor girls that I am friends with came over and helped me out too. They are wonderful and I love spending time with them (they are 1st graders). And I'll get to be their counselor at camp this summer which makes me so happy!
The rest of Sunday was spent driving back up to school and catching up with friends. The drive back is always my favorite because I get to sing along and play whatever I want. No shame. Okay. Well thanks for reading this whole thing…I probably should have put some pictures in! I hope you are all having/had a wonderful spring break. :)
