And, goodness, I'll be lucky if I actually get this post up tonight. The WiFi here has been awful the past couple days. (I just heard Meg March in my head, "Jo, please don't say 'awful'; it's slang.")
Oh, dear. My apologies for the rambling. MovieCritic tagged me with this a good while ago and I am finally getting around to it. If you don't know, this is me comparing myself to four fictional characters that I find to be...like myself in certain ways. That's not the best explanation, I know. So, without further ado, I give you The Fictional Characters Tag.
Cinderella is by far my favorite princess, but I do think I am more like Belle in plenty of ways. For one thing, I LOVE books. Good books. That's obvious, right? For another, I feel like a lot of people around me think I am 'odd'. I'm a bit preoccupied and daydream-y from time to time. And I just don't seem to fit in with most cliques. Finally, everytime I hear Belle sing "I want adventure in the great wide somewhere...I want so much more..." etc., my heart sings out "Me too!".
2. Anne Shirley
I believe I have compared myself to Anne before. But let's rehash. I am constantly doing something awkward or making a goofy mistake because I was lost in thought, not paying attention, or simply not thinking. I am a bit of a hopeless romantic, too. (I say 'a bit' but, okay, I just am a hopeless romantic.) I also tend to be rather idealistic, and some day I think I'll find, just like Anne, that what I was really looking for was right in front of me the whole time. Maybe.
3. Elinor Dashwood
This likeness I discovered through an online quiz and couldn't help but agree. Perhaps I am romantic and 'daydream-y', as I said, but I can be sensible and careful, too, when it is really important. I have also been known to mother-hen everybody, being overly concerned about others. I'm also fairly reserved and quiet when it comes to my thoughts and feelings.
Yes, I may have thoughts and feelings like Anne, but I do not wear them on my sleeve as she does.
4. Meriadoc Brandybuck
Here's the most surprising one, I am sure, but as I was considering my fourth choice, he came to mind and the more I thought about it...yeah. See, Merry and I are both kind of in the background a lot, but we can be loyal and courageous, too. It may not be obvious at first, but he and I both have what it takes to be a hero (or heroine, in my case). And like him, I may be underestimated because I am short, but I am passionate about what I believe in.
So there you have it. Four fictional characters I really relate to. I hope I proved my case satisfactorily ;-) Thanks for the tag, MovieCritic.
Speaking of her, MovieCritic is actually hosting the Robin Hood BBC watch-along that is going on right now. Be sure to hop over to her blog and join in the fun!
Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
