I will be cultured… one day!

I had an epiphany the other day—I am so not cultured. Then I decided I wanted to be.
So... in order for this to happen, I need to participate in cultural things. So I made a list!

*Read 50 classic novels. The only classic novels I’ve read were the required ones for highschool English classes. And I probably didn’t enjoy them as much as I should because I was forced to read them. So hopefully I can even learn to like them. But just in case, the list I made had 100 books. 50 classics. 50 others. So I can have a few breaks from the classy stuff. :)

*Watch all the Lord of the Rings, Star Wars & all the Avengers Movies. [Hulk. Ironman 1&2, Thor and Captain America.] I’ve never seen them. & I do realize that these are probably really random for a “To be cultured” list, but you’d be surprised at how many times these things are referenced in this country. So soon I’ll know what people are talking about. :)

*Watch Movies. {In general}. I’m getting a lot better and not hating them. I used to think they were a waste of time and I also could never pay attention throughout the whole thing. So I haven’t seen or even heard of many. But now I’ve come to the conclusion that movies are good, cultural & educational.

*Watch a musical on Broadway. NYC would be awesome. Vegas would be sweet. But even Gammage has some cool ones every now and again.

*Visit another country. At LEAST one. Pretty much any of them will do. But I’ve always wanted to go to France and England. And I WILL go one day. I will.

*Listen to music from other countries & in other languages. Cultural, no?

*Always try new things when given the opportunity. Like hobbies, random activities and such.

Come to my house!! We have all this stuff!! Also, you've never seen Lord of the Rings (or Star Wars!) What??? Okay, I just ordered the first LOTR extended edition because we only have the other two. Come watch it with me this christmas. Because I want to see you. And we can dress up as hobbits.

HANNAH GUNDERSON YOU ARE THE COOLEST EVER! I really love you, that's all. I have a lot of goals like this too. AND I'm glad to hear your movie realization because I love movies. So can I tell you that you can google search 'PROJECT GUTENBERG' and then download A TON of books for free? I'm not sure if you want to read them on a computer, but THEY'RE FREE! I would advise you to NOT do Lord of the Rings in a marathon, because you will not appreciate them all in a row. Actually to be honest, you may not appreciate them at all. BUT I LOVE THEM! Once you watch all of these movies then we should have a discussion. That is pretty much a list of all my favorite movies. I'll travel with you and see the Broadway plays if you're looking for someone to go with. Also I can send you some wonderful french, greek, and spanish music. This post just made me really excited.
