Welcome to another edition of Katherine at the Movies, where I, Katherine, watch movies. On last month’s edition, I did a quick recap of all the movies I had watched over the course of 4 months.
To remind you all, the goal is to watch 366 movies in 366 days (Yay leap years!). Simple. Last time I posted the first Katherine at the Movies, I had watched 108 movies. That’s averaging 27 movies a month. But in order to successfully complete this challenge, I need to average 31 movies per month. My count is currently at 146. I’m falling behind. Way behind.
When I started college, I realized I had a lot more time on my hands than I used to in high school. I had a less structured schedule than before and I wasn’t much of a partier feeling more comfortable spending my Friday and Saturday nights in my dorm room rather than at some kegger. With all that free time I started watching a lot more movies than I ever did. My best friend at another university, two states away, and I would schedule movie nights watching whatever seemed good at the moment.
Then in 2012 I started writing down all the names of the movies I watched. At first I would watch a movie a week, but then by the summer, I could watch 4 movies a day. I inadvertently started watching films just to see how many I could watch in an entire year. (By the way, I ended up watching 301 movies that year.)
