Last night I saw my first Studio Ghibli film. It was wonderful! I don’t know why I waited so long. It was My Neighbor Totoro and was playing as a special event at a local movie theater for Studio Ghibli Fest 2017. I really loved the Totoro and the Cat Bus. I went with my uncle and my boyfriend who both liked it too.

There was a huge snafu though. It was supposed to be the subtitled viewing but they didn’t turn on the subtitles right. It was so weird watching the beginning of it in Japanese with no clue what they were saying! But Duolingo just added Japanese so it made me more psyched to add that language. After a bit, they tried to turn on subtitles. Failed. Then started it over with the dubbed version. I made a joke to my boyfriend that it was all because it was my first time and first times have to have awkward beginnings. It was still great though.

Now for the meetup idea! I was wondering if any of you wanted to meet up at the Regal in Rockville for the Monday at 7pm (there are two showtimes but that’s the only one that works for me) showings of the others. There’s one at the end of each month for a bit. The next one is Kiki’s Delivery Service on July 24th. I was thinking that we could also get food or drinks nearby. It’s okay if this doesn’t work for anyone. Just wanted to suggest something!
