Movies I Never Tire of Watching

The Harry Potter -series

These movies and books are a big part of my nerd-identity and therefore important to me. I can watch them over and over again and have not yet grown tired of them. They always bring me back to good memories and I just love them.

Komisario Palmu movies

These are a series of three (four) Finnish movies based on the books of Mika Waltari. They are good old murder mysteries and a part of old Finnish black-and-white movie legacy that I love. My dad loves the old black-and-white Finnish movies and I was raised watching them. This “series”, however, is one of my favorites because they are murder mysteries. I never get tired of watching them, even though I have watched them hundreds of times and remember nearly all of the lines of the movies. I can always watch them and revert back to my childhood when I watched these movies.

Sorority Boys

I came across this movie when I looked for Michael Welling movies and loved it from the first watch. This movie never fails to make me feel good. It’s a funny movie about personal growth. I love it and will probably be inspired to watch it once again because of this post. 🙂

Detective Conan -movies

These are a series of anime movies that correspond to the anime series of the same name. One comes out every year and since I found these, I have watched them from the first to the last nearly every year once the newest has been released. I just love these, not only because they are detective stories, but because they are great anime movies.

The X-Men -series

These, like the Harry Potter movies are a big part of my nerd-identity. I have watched them several times and will watch them many times in the future. While they are not all equally good, I love them all.

The Host

Now, I don’t know if I like this movie so much because of the movie or because it has Jake Abel in it. I admit that was the biggest reason I wanted to see this movie, but I liked it quite a lot when I saw it. Actually I liked it so much that the next day after seeing it I went to the closest bookstore and bought the book it was based on. Needless to say I finished the book in, like, three days. It is a great story about not judging people because of what they are but based on how they act and how they are on the inside.

It Takes a Lot of Courage to Stand up to Your Enemies, But a Great Deal More to Stand up to Your Friends

Quote Me

I’m sensing a theme here with the Dumbledore quotes.

Although I chose this one, I can’t say this is the only great quote, it’s just the first that came to my mind.

This is one of my favorite quotes for many reasons. It reminds me that it is okay to not always agree with my friends. I have strong opinions and I’m not afraid to voice them. If I sometimes find myself doubting myself in the face of my friends having differing opinions to mine, I remember these words.

Although the difference in opinion may create some bad feelings between us for a little while, I believe it will strengthen our friendship. And that is what I feel is the soul of this quote. That you may be afraid to stand up for what you believe in before your ‘enemies’ but in the end, their opinions do not matter but you will be even more afraid to stand against your friends because theirs does. But in the end, the leap of faith you take when standing up to your friends will pay up in the end because they are your friends and they love you.

Another reason why I love this quote is the tone it sets for Neville in Harry Potter. A boy who does not believe in himself gets recognition for once in his life and it gives him courage to be better. Even though he is awkward, clumsy and not that great in school, somebody recognizes he has potential. It also gives him the first validation for why he got sorted into Gryffindor.

These are some of the reasons why I love this quote.

More fingerless mittens

I made another pair of fingerless mittens. These too are in Harry Potter colors. These are in Slytherin green and “silver” (grey). I love green, it’s my favorite color, and I decided to make these. After that I decided to make a whole set, so there’ll be two more pairs in the near future 🙂

Finger-less mittens

Made some fingerless mittens for myself because I love to use these kinds of mittens in the autumn and spring because they’re not too warm to use. I chose these colors to go with a scarf I made on Harry Potter -style in gryffindor colors. The yellow in the mittens is a kittle lighter than the yellow in my scarf because they stopped selling the exact shade I used on the scarf.
