This is my post for the First Loves Blogfest. This blogfest is hosted by none other than the ninja master Alex J. Cavanaugh, you can go HERE to see more about this blogfest and the other blogs participating. It's all about your first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person.
My first movie that I fell in love with was probably The Princess Bride. It had a bit of everything- comedy, romance, action, fantasy, and revenge. It made you believe in true love and wish for a dark pirate to come sweep you off your feet. It gave you a new type of princess. And some of the best lines ever... As you wish, Inconceivable, and the one below.
One of my favorite first bands that I fell in love with was Wham! I had the biggest crush on George Michael. What can I say I was maybe ten and it was the 80's. Can you believe those shorts?
I think when I was about thirteen I read a book called 13 is Too Young to Die by Isaacsen-Bright. It is a book about a thirteen year old girl who struggles with lupus and illness. It was a book that had a great impact on me and struck a cord because my mom struggled with chronic illness. It was a great book and I believe I still have it today.
Throughout my sixth grade year I had a boyfriend. (Ah, young puppy love.) We would walk home everyday from school together and went on my first date with him. His mom picked us up and dropped us off at the movie theater. I think the movie was Some Kind of Wonderful. Anyone remember that movie? At the end of my sixth grade year we moved from California. I was devastated. I remember my mom letting us stop by his house before we drove out of town. I remember watching through the back window as he got smaller and smaller, tears streaming down my face. I couldn't understand why we had to move away. Ironically we stayed friends throughout the years and still talk. He's also a writer. (Hi if your reading this, you know who you are. :)
So, what do you think? Have any of the same first loves? Have you heard of the book before? Read it? Scene the movies?
Don't forget to stop back Wednesday when I'm interviewing Alex.
