musings about july

Just a few more days + this month will be over soon, but I haven’t posted about the reasons why I was looking forward to July this year + why I simply love this month 😉

Here, let me count the reasons why:

  1. I simply love July since a month from now my little man, Jared, will be turning a big two, + his blog, jared’s little corner, will be celebrating its birthday along with mum 😀 + although there won’t be no fancy celebration this year, it will not make the event less exciting or make me look forward to it less. We might go out-of-town even for just a day on Jared’s big day or the days nearing that date 😀
  2. The last installment to the epic saga, Harry Potter + the Deathly Hallows comes out in the cinema this month. We have been highly anticipating it + although it will be a bittersweet experience to watch our hero for the last time on the big screen, it is something I wouldn’t want to miss! Long live Potter!
  3. This month is also the month my fave, incubus, will be coming down to Manila for a concert at the Big Dome on the 28th + though I haven’t got a ticket yet (which I shall be posting soon as I got one!) this is something I really look forward to! This early I have to be good to my siblings so they will look after the little man whilst mum watches a concert 😀
  4. A lot of exciting + new things are happening in the blogosphere, with loads of giveaways too, and although I was spending more hours in front of the PC + spending less + less hours sleeping, I definitely have no complaints..well except that I hope my pc can cope up with all the things I have to do online, that is! 🙂

So, what are you looking forward to this month?

potter alert: the deathly hallows part 2 london premiere

“Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home” ~ JK Rowling

Don’t you just wish you were with those several thousands of Harry Potter fans in Trafalgar Square in London to witness this epic premiere of our beloved series, the best premiere the UK has ever seen? I sure did!

Well, too bad Trafalgar Square is eon miles away from where we are. Glad my bro, who is the most Harry Potter hardcore of all my siblings, found this almost-four-hour video streaming of the most celebrated London premiere. Enjoy 😉

potter alert: wait there's more

 Several more days to go before the last installment of the last book opens in theaters worldwide, + I must say I have quite a bittersweet feeling about it. Happy that, finally I will get to see the highly-anticipated completion of The Deathly Hallows, but sad at the same time, knowing that after these there will never no more books to anticipate + movies to watch out for. It is the end of our Harry Potter adventure + for someone who’s been hooked for almost a decade now, I do not know how I’d cope with the loss.

Until I came across this new site that author, JK Rowling is launching on the 31st, Pottermore. According to the teaser, Pottermore is a free website that builds an exciting online experience around the reading of the Harry Potter books + readers are asked to come back on 31st July to find out how you can get the chance to enter Pottermore early.

I’ve readily signed up with the site + am keeping my fingers crossed that it shall be enough to tide us over 😀
