On Tuesday night, we had a roommates only night. All guests or friends or boyfriends, etc, left the room for two hours while the roommates hung out and watched movies, drank hot chocolate, and did makeup and hair.
We watched Enchanted with Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey and we watched Fern Gully: The Last Rainforest. It was a very girly night where we remembered our youth and relaxed. No homework was done, no stresses were present, and we stuffed our mouths full of food that we really didn’t need. It was a relaxing and enjoyable time that I believe everyone should allow themselves at least once a week to rid themselves of the stresses of classes and work.
Now, while most of you know what Enchanted is or at least have heard of it, I bet a lot of you have never heard of Fern Gully. My roommates sure hadn’t before Tuesday night. I think that is a crying shame! Everyone should see Fern Gully at least once in their lifetime.
Fern Gully is the story of Crysta, a fairy in the rainforest, and her family. Their world is being destroyed by loggers and the trees are in pain, but Crysta won’t let that happen! When a human working on the site thinks she is a bug and tries to spray her with spray paint, he accidentally sprays an ancient tree that holds an evil spirit. In the process of this, Crysta accidentally shrinks down the human, a creature that all the fairies fear thanks to their crazy friend Batty (a bat who escaped from a biology lap with a radio in his head), when she is trying to explore the logging areas and hatch out a plan. What happens? Well, you will just have to watch the movie and find out.
Now, that was just a little insight into my childhood. Unfortunately, it also shows my age in relation to about every other student on this campus haha, but that’s okay. I am just happy to share my wisdom and experiences with everyone in order for them to experience these moments and movies themselves. Next up to introduce to the roommates… We will just have to wait and see. 🙂
Thanks for listening!
