I’m a few days late with this post. In my mind everyone is just anticipating the 15th of each month to see what my favorite things about each princess are and what my goals will be. So, I hope I didn’t disappoint. (If you are just now noticing that I post this type of post on or around the 15th of each month, I just can’t even deal with you right now.) Anyway, on to the stats and stuff!
Seen in: Beauty and the Beast, 1991
My favorite songs:
- “Belle (Reprise)” – this is sort of like my life mantra. Is that the correct phrase?
- “Beauty and the Beast”
- “The Mob Song”
My favorite things about Belle:
- She’s a bookworm
- She doesn’t judge a book by its cover (both literally and figuratively)
- She loves to wear flats
- She is kind (as I learned from Cinderella, this is not a common trait)
- She is outside the norm. For example: she is the only person in her village to wear blue, not to mention the only one who reads.
Belle’s Most Depressing Moments:
- When she takes her father’s place as prisoner
- When Beast Dies (pretend the happy ending isn’t in this clip)
My Goals Inspired by Belle:
- Read a book.
Status: In progress. I am currently reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. You may know me as a bookworm, but it’s been a very long time since I completed a book. I will explain in a later post.
- Do something literary.
Status: Planned. I originally wanted to go to the oldest library in Ohio or go to one of Ohio’s famous literary sites, but I just don’t have the time this month. Luckily, since I volunteer at my local library I will be helping out at Teen Book Fest. See more info here: https://pickeringtonlibrary.org/event/pickerington-teen-book-fest-2018/
- See people for who they really are, beyond how they look or present themselves.
Status: In progress. This is not always an easy thing to do.
- Figure out what I think a “provincial life” is and what I am going to do to not have one. This could include, oh, I don’t know, finally deciding if I want to go to school for library science.
Status: On the back burners and avoiding slightly. More on this later as well.
- Make either “Hannah’s Muffs: Sweet Potato Bacon Pastries” sans bacon (Sorry bacon lovers, I’m a vegetarian) or “Jo’s Gingerbread”… or both from this adorable cook book I found at the library called A Literary Tea Party by Alison Walsh
Status: I thought Belle would appreciate this more than making something from her website since I’m reading Little Women. In my mind she thinks I’m a genius.
Until next time!
