Zootopia – My Daughter’s First Movie Theatre Experience

For the first time ever, my daughter watched a movie in a movie theatre. She’s watched a movie on TV before, and she paid attention to the entire thing. The movie was Majou no Takyuubin (Kiki’s Delivery Service). She watched a couple movies on the airplane, but didn’t pay attention to them for more than fifteen minutes. So, I was wondering how well she would sit still for a movie in the theatre.

The movie was Zootopia, a movie she’s been excited about seeing for a while now. Well, she had her drink, a strawberry Fruitopia. It rhymes with the movie’s title. She sat between my wife and I in a nearly empty afternoon theatre. And then the movie started. And when the theme song by Shakira started, she was dancing in her seat. Both times. There were a couple scary moments in the movie when she hid her face in my arm, but she was okay once it was over.

At the end of the movie, she didn’t want to leave the theatre. She didn’t understand that once it was finished, everyone had to leave. When we got her to leave, I asked her if she enjoyed the movie. She did. I asked her if she was scared. She was. But she had a good time. And most importantly, she sat for the entire movie. She’s patient enough now. And she loved the movie.

As for what I thought of the movie, I enjoyed it. It was quite fun, funny, and pretty creative. My first impression was that I wanted to visit Zootopia. Go see it!

Week in Review – April 10, 2016

I thought everything would return to normal, but I still find it difficult to keep up with the pace that I set before. Still far too much to do, and not enough time to myself. Soon, I hope!


Honestly, I’ve done so little, not much to update. I did read a couple pages of Redemption Ark, though. Now at 39%.


Still no place to write. Haven’t had time, either.


I’ve been studying Esperanto slowly, but I’m getting close to the next level. Trying to study every day.


Lots done, still lots to do. Got things taken care of regarding health insurance, driver’s license, and pretty much everything involving IDs and address changes. Still working on a job, getting my bank card reactivated, and cell phones. Also, my wife’s permanent residency has basically been approved. We should get the visa package this week.


Thought I’d get some done, but I had no time.

The Blog

Not really as much as I thought I’d do. I haven’t been able to maintain two posts per day. It’s been slow going, but things should pick up later in the month.


Nothing at all.

The Next Week’s Goals

More job searching, getting bank accounts sorted, and hopefully cell phones. Also, arranging my wife’s official landing in Canada. Other than that, try to maintain my daily language studying and post as usual. I’m not committing to anything special online.

How was your week? Let me know in the comments below.
