This is a bit of a fangirl rant. You HAVE been warned! Lots of YouTube links, gif sets and Tumblr links included~

Dreamworks Animation makes the most amazing films I have ever seen in my life. How to Train Your Dragon and Rise of the Guardians are my two top favourites hands down.

I have been watching How to Train Your Dragon over and over again ever since my family bought the DVD. It’s a beautiful film.

One of fitting in, becoming who you are, forbidden friendships, and respect.

The amount of work that’s been put into this film is phenomenal. The smallest details were taken into consideration to truly make the film its own. If you look at each dragons fire, each is different and personalized to match the individual dragon. The expressions of the characters faces truly let the audience connect and fall in love with them.

I love seeing the actors behind the scenes, they match their characters so well (especially Hiccup) its’ almost scary! Here’s a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpxBMdl07sY

Dragons: Riders of Berk -the TV series for How To Train Your Dragon (Seeing the teens train their dragons and their friendship grow is amazing)

And I shall leave off with one of my favourite lines from the film from Hiccup:

“And now the spinning. Thanks for nothing, you useless reptile.”

8. Something you forget you have but love

 

I got this as a gift from my aunt. At first, I wasn’t loving it, it seemed a bit too girly for me. However, over time I began to appreciate it and it’s small details that make it a bit more unique.

 

Not only are the sleeves 3/4, they have very light and dainty details from the curves to the buttons on the bottom of the sleeve.

 

This actually has 2 zippers, and I’ve always loved the shape of it. It reminds me of drawing an “S” the cool way back in middle school.

 

These ruffles were always a bit odd to me, but eventually I got over it because I love how well this top hugs me and looks crazy fitted. Also, the zipper only goes up halfway which makes it a bit cooler in my book.

I dunno what it is, but sometimes we actually need to be at an all-time low just to learn a bit about ourselves.

On Saturday, I woke up with a reaaaaaaaaaaaally bad case of the Flu (along with a surprise attack of a swollen lip AND cramps! GAH, just kill me!) that I unfortunately picked up from my dad (ironically he got better the day I got sick), and currently I’m STILL sick in bed trying my best to get better asap! Well, I don’t have a choice seeing that I have things to get done and I hate being sick.

It’s been crazy! Not using my phone or my laptop (okay, well except for NOW) because my parents would keep it out of my reach so that I could recover …

But, I actually loved it. (Yeah, even the no music part! Crazy, right?)

It was like a burden was taken off my shoulders. I felt … enlightened. No social networking, not a given damn about the world (except for how long I was going to be stuck in this coughing/sneezing rut!) for the last several days. TRY IT SOMETIME … MINUS THE GETTING SICK PART!

All I was worried about was my health, WHICH I’ve realized just how badly I’ve been taking care of myself! I’ve made a vow to start eating properly, and to try to sleep earlier! I’m also substituting pop for a good ole glass of OJ! (anyone who knows me knows I am a coke/pepsi ADDICT)

We never think about these things because we’re so used to it. We’re used to putting it off, brushing it off like it’s nothing to worry about.

You realize the little things around you BECAUSE you have nothing else to do besides sleep while in bed, so you pick up on the little things like how helpless you are, how much you appreciate whoever is helping you get better (THANK YOU MOM!), and how to just breathe and be in a peaceful environment.

I didn’t realize some friends of mine would be worrying (which is why I’m writing a post, so that they know, AND I’m gunna post a fb status stating that I haven’t died), which I apologize for! I didn’t mean to make you worry!

If you are still reading, WOW I CONGRATULATE YOU! Why? Because I can admit this is a boring post, which most people probably scrolled past, and I’m more than okay with that, as well as it sounds like I’m some preaching monk or something (NO OFFENSE!)I’ll be sure to add an extra post to spice things up a bit!
