11 Thoughts During The First Episode Of 'Game Of Thrones'

When you FINALLY get around to watching it after everyone else has

11 Thoughts During The First Episode Of 'Game Of Thrones'
HBO

After weeks and weeks of possibly everyone I know telling me to watch 'Game Of Thrones', I finally broke and started watching it. Just in time for the very last season apparently. I know, I know, I am a little late to the party, but at least I am watching it after all this time. I may have been convinced by the 'Game Of Thrones' edition Oreos that have just come out, or maybe by the chair that keeps appearing all over. I mean, it must be at least pretty decent for it to get signature Oreos, am I right? From the very beginning of the first episode of the first season, there is such a thick plot that the viewer is thrown in to. Here are a few of my thoughts from watching the first episode and trying to make sense of it all.

The Episode is called "Winter is Coming" but winter is clearly already there

There is snow all over people! Literally all over!

Ahh really chopped up body parts this early?

We are only about two minutes in. And why does only one of the guys seem slightly concerned?!

That theme song though

Love the map idea as well as the music. 10/10.

These white walker things seem spooky

There is some Voldemort thing going on because nobody believes they are back but clearly they are.

I see why it is so easy to get confused with characters

A third of the way in and they have only named about 3 people. No wonder nobody can keep track.

Jon Snow hating haircuts is too relatable

Me too, Jon, me too.

I wonder where they film these

I mean there are just so many landscapes. They are in the snow, then a valley, then the beach. How long does it take to travel and film?!

Dragon Eggs?

I mean why not at this point.

They language barrier seems like it could be a potential issue

Not that anyone is really concerned about the health of Daenerys and the Dothraki's marriage, but there seems to be many, many issues here.

They really squeezed a lot into the hour episode here

I feel like I just watched a whole movie.

This kid is climbing the castle again

Listen to your mother!

Oh my God they pushed the kid off the castle

That ending?!

As a final note, the episode was totally packed with so much information. At first, it is hard to take in and I see why everyone is overwhelmed by the first episode. and maybe they stop watching after that. However, I must confess, I did watch the second... and the third immediately after. What can I say, it sucked me in! Needless to say, I will be binging the remaining seasons on HBOgo until I am caught up. Alas, everyone else was correct. It is absolutely incredible. The popularity is well deserved as the entire show itself is well written, directed, and filmed. The actors are so good and I cannot think of a bad thing to say about any of it! I have cleared my plans for the next few weeks and if anyone needs me for anything, you can find me in bed with my Game of Thrones Oreos, binging the rest of the series.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13603

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
