Thursday Thirteen #148

Happy Thursday! This week, I wanted to keep it light and fun. While not writing-related at all, I figure this is my blog and I’m allowed to have some off-topic things here and there. I’ve decided to go with things I’ve learned from movies, which I hope you enjoy.

What movies have *you* learned from? I’d love for you to let me know in the comments.
