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.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
