Sunday, I watched the afternoon matinee of Harry Potter VII part 2 and was pretty disappointed. Overall, the movies have been disappointing to me because I just love the richness and depth of the books. Most of the films have seemed like highlight reels to me. It isn't that I hated the movie or thought that it was bad, it is just that there isn't really anyway for the films to adequately represent the books.
After the film I went to the gym and ran for 20 mins. on the dreadmill before I started to feel my chest constricting. I spent the rest of the afternoon trying to cast the Anapneo spell with no success.
