  1. LOL nice! I think I’ve only seen a movie at most 3x in a movie theater. I totally understand how you feel about feeling insecure. Do we ever grow out of things like that? Congrats on yet another award. I still have a few I need to write up on (including one u had nominated me for)…ugh no time to write lately! ! πŸ™‚

    1. Haha…trust me it was a once in a lifetime thing: I don’t think I will ever watch a movie that much in the theater ever again Lol. As for feeling insecure: naw, I don’t think I will ever grow out of it fully, but all we can do is improve:) Thank you very much for the kind words: always appreciate it! πŸ˜€ Ps: don’t worry, I know how you feel. This week I don’t have a lot of time to write things either. There arevsoare other things I have to do as well, but I will try and keep up with everyone’s blogs πŸ˜€

  2. Congratulations! You truly deserve it, Raistlin! Also, thank you for the nomination. I am humbled! First of all, I saw Titanic 3 times in theaters, Kate Winslet is my FAVORITE actress. As far as being insecure, everyone is to varying degrees. Blogging will likely help with this. Finally, I am also terrified of flying. In 2013, I flew to London, England from the States. It wasn’t that bad. My Dad told me that more people die in car accidents than plan crashes so, when looked at like that, it might help alleviate your fears somewhat.

    1. Thank you very much for the kind words, they mean a lot. Kate Winslet is definitely a very good actress. Lately she does not appear in too many movies unfortunately. The last time I saw her was in Triple 9, where she played a very different role than usual. I agree, blogging definitely helps with feelings of insecurity (that and it really is something that has pretty much become a part of my life, something I never expected when I started this blog months ago πŸ˜€). Yes, that is what they keep telling me to, people die more in car accidents. So far it hasn’t helped me though πŸ˜‚ Still, I have to get over it some day, as I really want to visit some Asian country one day (preferably China or Japan). And that would take a bit too long to reach by boat πŸ˜‚

      1. Ah Japan is on my list too. My trick when getting on a plane is to pop a sleeping pill beforehand haha. I still teared up during takeoff but it helped. Some people suggest drinking on the plane (though I don’t drink myself). Also, they usually have in flight movies that you can watch to distract yourself. What made you decide to start blogging?

      2. Well, I am sure that there will come a time that I will let go of my fears and just do it (either that, or I ask if they can knock me out so I don’t notice anything of the flight πŸ˜‚). It was a bit of an experiment really. I was a bit fed up with Facebook (where I used to post small reviews) and than I came across WordPress. One sunday I just decided to start it, just to see what it would be like. Little did I know that I would enjoy it this much…now 6 months later, I pretty much can’t imagine to ever let this go πŸ˜€

  3. Congratulations!
    I tend to be pretty insecure as well though like you, I can usually hide it.

    Good luck for that future cruise and may the icebergs stay well away from you.

    1. Haha, thank you very much for the kind words. Appreciate it very much! Insecurity will always be a problem, but over the years things definitely have improved. Hopefully that will be the case for you as well. As for the Icebergs, perhaps I will take my Mobile Suit Gundam with me, that should help πŸ˜‚

  4. Congratulations! The award name is absolutely adorable hahahaha
    Thanks so much for nominating me too ^^
    I’m absolutely scared of flying as well, and heights in general. I get faint from watching *other* people on rollercoasters LOL
    Keep up the great work πŸ™‚


  5. You have watched the Titanic 9 times and it has to be on the big screens huh? πŸ˜‚ I have seen Avatar 3 times and all at the theater. 😊 the big screen just makes the movie better somehow! Have you seen it?

    1. Yeah, it was pretty crazy to have seen a movie 9 times in the theatre, but I don’t know: that movie just did something to me πŸ˜€ As for Avatar: oh yes, I have seen it twice in the theatre, both times in 3 D, which made it even better. Luckily James Cameron is finally working on the sequels, really looking forward to those πŸ˜€

      1. Cool πŸ˜€ Yes it is true, brace yourself: James Cameron is working on four, yes you read that right, four sequels for Avatar. The first is scheduled to arrive in 2018, so we still have to wait for it for a while. Hopefully it will be worth the wait πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you very much πŸ˜€ Haha…I watch a lot of movies, but there are definitely a few classics along the way that I have missed as well πŸ˜€ It is a very good movie though, definitely worth watching (although 9 times might be a bit excessive lol πŸ˜‚)

  6. Congrats, and Well deserved! You’re a man of many interests and talents. I’m impressed by how diverse your interests are, how you write so well in your non-native language, English, and how you keep up with other people’s writing. A model blogger, indeed. Great work, man! And btw, Titanic is the most profound cinematic experience I’ve ever had. Great movie. I saw it 5 times in theaters ( I was only 7 years old ).

    1. Wow, and I am pretty impressed by this truly terrific comment. Thank you very much for these very kind words. It really means a lot πŸ˜€ Yes, I have not seen Titanic now in over ten years, but it will always remain a movie unlike anything I have ever seen. I remember the first time I saw it, that the entire movie theatre remained in their seats until the end credits (abd it wasn’t a Marvel film lol). There were even people that started flap-img their hands, truly a thing I have never experienced again after that πŸ˜€ Thank you again !
