But today's post will be about tomorrow- I will be watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2! I wasn't excited yet when we bought the tickets on Sunday, but I definitely am excited now!
For those of you who don't know, I'll just have to refresh your memories. Harry Potter means a lot to me. My journey with Harry did not start in the 90s when J.K. Rowling first emerged; rather it was only in 2001 (I think) when I watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at the movies that I began to read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (yes I skipped Chamber of Secrets; but I read it after Azkaban).
And I was hooked- I began devouring word after word, page after page of J.K. Rowling's brilliance. After that there was no turning back- I moved on to other books, and thus began my love for reading, and later, writing as well. But the reason Harry Potter is so special to me is because I cannot imagine myself not being a bookworm and someone who aspires to get published. I don't know what I would've been like had I not stumbled on Harry, but I sure as hell would not have been the person I am today, which is why I'm thankful that the books actually shaped who I am today.
I will definitely be posting a review of the movie in the next few days, but it will definitely be biased and filled with personal meanings, so maybe I should call it a reflection instead.
I'm thinking that you can tell that this movie is no ordinary movie- it has a lot of very personal memories and emotions, it brings back memories of a time when I didn't have to worry about whether I've made preparations for my next meal, or whether I've done all my chores and responsibilities. The end of the movie will definitely be symbolic- I started my journey back home, as a 10 year-old, who discovered that some books are actually worth reading, and will end it here, in Melbourne, a little over a month shy of turning 20, who worry about so many other things in life.
Now I've to begin preparing for class tomorrow! See you!
