A Pirate’s Life is the Life for Me

So I’m not sure how many of you were aware of this, but today is “International Talk Like a Pirate Day“. And you all know how I feel about holidays!

So of course did.

free stuff

A few years ago a group of us dressed up as pirates, so I still had my awesome costume. I put it on and sauntered over to the store, trying to be as Anne Bonny as I could.

When I got there, I told the lady “Arr, I be commandeering this shop!”

And she gave me my doughnuts.

Day 27) Your Favorite Disney Hero

Peter Pan

So yeah, I was a huge Peter Pan fan. I loved him so, so, so, so, so much. I always wished he would come over to America and visit me, taking me away to Neverland. But sadly he never, ever came. Other kids wished for Hogwarts letters, to go to Camp Blood, etc; I  wished for him.

I used to read the illustrated classic as a kid, just like I did with Phantom of the Opera, and the day I bought the actual book I had to read all the way through.

We were at a restaurant and instead of talking to everyone, I was like nope I’m reading.

Anyways, so I love Peter Pan and I love how he has red hair, that is just perfect and how I had always imagined it. Now I know that Peter isn’t the most humble of characters, as he is boastful, egocentric, cocky, etc. Peter is mainly an exaggerated stereotype of a boastful and careless boy. He is quick to point out how great he is,  (such as when he congratulates himself for Wendy’s successful re-attachment of his shadow). In the book and play, as well as both films, Peter symbolizes the selfishness of childhood, shown in Barrie’s work through constant forgetfulness and self-centred behavior.

But he has a lot of good points too. He really loves and cares about his Lost Boys and Wendy. He might not always put them first, but he does care about them. And he always knows the right thing to say.

Plus he’s brave, kind, funny, and always up for games of make believe and imagination.
