So it’s only Monday but I am already exhausted and can’t wait for the weekend. Is it just me or what? I feel like today was so long and I was sitting in my lessons like whaaaat it’s only been 20 minutes but it feels like 2 hours already!! I have so much homework I am surprised I even got to write this blog today but here it is for you guys. I am working on something else as well but I feel like my other posts that are more on my personal feelings and emotions ( my life stories as I dub them) such as Finding a lost voice, or Safety net etc. take a lot more time because they are a lot harder to talk about and it’s an important issue to address so I don’t want to rush with them. I hope you don’t mind but I am still working on a few of them so I thought since I love love love movies I would name my Top 10. Some of these I have seen 1000 times it feels like but I will never get tired of them. Haha!!
This is an incredible story about a young teen who is passionate about her hobby: surfing. She was leading a perfect life, a loving family who also love surfing, a wonderful best friend and she excelled at surfing. However one day she lost her arm to a shark attack. Obviously, such an event scars someone for life but she didn’t give up. She stayed focused and despite her disability, she entered the contest she had always wanted to enter. I don’t want to give too much away but she also uses her passion to help other afraid of going out into the water. I think this is just an extremely inspiring and thought-provoking movie. And the fact that it’s based on a true story makes it even more powerful and inspirational. I would definitely recommend it.
The Greatest Showman
I mean honestly, do I even have to say the plot? Unless you have been licking under a rock you have probably heard of this spectacular amazing movie! The only reason I didn’t put it at the top was that although it was both inspirational and entertaining it didn’t affect me as much as Soul Surfer. Nonetheless, it’s an incredible film that addresses many important issues such as Greed, Racism, Believing in oneself and Perseverance to name a few. It’s a movie that follows the life of P.T. Barnum and his adventures as he sets himself the task of creating a show later called a circus. He worked from the very bottom teaching us so much about the importance of goals and dreams. It comes with how to handle fame and not let it get to you. Simply amazing! Highly recommend it.
Homeless to Harvard
This is a movie about a girl that was born into an abusive, drug taking family but also born with incredible skills in school. When she tried she excelled beyond normal capabilities. After being put in foster homes until the age of 18, she was kicked onto the streets, homeless. One day she picked herself up and she realised had the potential to lead a good life and make good friends rather than following her parent’s footsteps so she enrolled in school and worked incredibly hard to get a scholarship and not just go to any university but an Ivy League university: Harvard. It shows once again where determination and hard work can get you! It’s a bit dark at times I will admit and almost depressive but worth a watch nonetheless. It’s also based on a true story so like how amazing is that?
So those were my top 3 in order and these are the rest
4. Mean Girls
5. Legally blonde
7. The DUFF
8. 10 things I hate about you

Do you guys have any other favourites that I haven’t mentioned? Do you agree with some fo mine or even disagree with them? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!! Love you all
