The First Loves Blogfest is hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh. Click here to find who is participating. The goal is to mention our first loves when it comes to movies, songs/bands, books, and people.
The first movie I fell in love with was Disney's Beauty and the Beast. I loved that movie, watched it numerous of times, and in fifth grade, I wouldn't be caught without a blue ribbon in my hair and a book in my hands. Belle was intelligent, beautiful, and she wanted more out of life.
I remember hearing Seal's "Kiss from a Rose" in Batman Forever. I completely fell in love with the song, and it makes my breath catch every time I hear it today.
Eloise Jarvis McGraw's The Golden Goblet was the first book I loved that I had to read for school. I read it in sixth grade, and it ignited my passion for history, ancient civilizations, and mythology.
In third grade, I fell in love with a boy. He was very intelligent, tall, and quite cute. I won't say his name, but he was the first guy who made me feel special for my intellect. He said the only people who could sit with him at lunch were those who made straight A's, so my friend and I got to sit with him. Yeah, we both liked him. He skipped fourth grade and went to a different school after third, so I lost touch with him. I wonder what happened to him.
