HP: Hardest Possible blog to write ... ever

July 23, 2011 - Pam Rodgers
Well I saw it, along with several millions of people (not in the same theater of course). Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part 2 midnight showing was every bit as exciting as I thought it would be. The movie was fantastic and was a wonderful ending to an epic story. But this one of the hardest blogs I have ever tried to write.

I sat down the next day and tried to lay down the groundwork for my a blog. Here's how I started:

My dad, brother, sister and I began our experience early going to the reshowing of Deathly Hallows Part 1 at 9 p.m. prior to the midnight showing of the eighth and final movie. It was nice to see the movie played back to back to see the seamless continuity of it all. Harry Potter 7.2 was two hour action packed ride that fantastic to watch. It truly is an end of a decade of entertainment when the credits rolled.

Then nothing came to me. I tried to come up with words to describe the film beyond the adjectives I used in the first the one paragraph. But I have just sat here, starring at my computer screen, fingers on the keys trying to put into words what it all means to me, and I just can’t seem to do it.

After putting off the blog for several hours. I finally saved what little I had and put the blog to rest, hoping each day I would wake up and inspiration would hit so I could complete the blog. It never came. Now a week later, I decided to type the honest truth. There are no words I can come up with to adequately describe my thoughts about the final Harry Potter.

I can’t imagine what my life would be without Harry Potter. It was a huge part of youth and young adult life that it still hasn’t fully sunk in that it’s done. I can always re-watch the movies and reread the books, for sure, but there won’t be anything new to look forward too.

I always knew the ending would be bittersweet but I never knew how much until the day actually came. I didn't cry; I teared. The ending is too awesome and epic that tears just don't seem fitting. Plus, I'm not really a crier.

I will have to watch the movie again and try to wrap my head around my true opinion and will probably not share those with everyone.

One final thought. Saying Harry Potter is over is very incorrect, in my opinion. Yes, there will be no more movies or books, but it will never go away. So saying goodbye isn't fitting. So I'll just say "See you later, Harry Potter," as horribly cheesy as that may be.
