I have this really nerdy tradition that during every spring break I watch all three of the Lord of the Rings movies. I know, I know, it’s really nerdy. I’m not really sure what I started doing it, it just kind of happened about three years ago. On Tuesday, me and Becky went to Andrew’s to watch the first of the series, the Fellowship of the Ring, and last night they came over to watch The Twin Towers at my house.
Becky ended up spending the night, which was really fun. She hasn’t spent the night at my house in probably like six months, so it was just nice to have girl time. We talked some about prom and were trying to figure out what the heck we’re going to do with our hair, but to no avail (any ideas?). We also reminisced about middle school and elementary school and all the stupid drama and stuff that freaked us all out; it all seems so silly now, but at the time it was such a big deal. I guess that’s growing up.
I’m going back over to Andrew’s tonight to watch the last movie (which is the best one!). I think I forgot how long they were. They were long to begin with, but I have the extended versions which add like another 30-45 minutes to it. So they’re like four hours. :l But totally worth it! They are probably some of my favorite movies.
I’m still pretty sure I like the books better though. In some ways, the movies don’t give it justice. I think that’s how it is though with most books that are turned into movies. Speaking of which, I need to read those books again. Next to Harry Potter, they’re my favorite. I know, super nerd.
I started fiddling around with Photoshop yesterday and ended up making a few icons. They’re the first ones I’ve ever made, so there’s definitely room for improvement, but overall I’m pretty proud of them. You can see all of them on the icons page, but here are a few of my favorites:
What do you guys think?
