Thirty Days of Feelings: Day Six

This year I’m undergoing a bit of an experiment: Thirty straight days of doing/watching/listening to/reading something that makes me feel – however fleetingly – like an actual human being, in the hopes that this will thaw a layer of ice off my frozen shriveled little heart, and allow me to not be such a buzzkill this year. So let’s get to it.

Day Six: Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3

Yes, it is another Pixar movie. I can’t help if this company has a direct line to my heart strings, OK?

I thought about picking the first Toy Story movie, because it is such a classic, but at the end of the day I actually think I prefer the third one.

Toy Story 3 picks up around 10 years or so after the first, and young Andy is all grown up and heading off to college. With the move out comes the cleaning, and our intrepid toys find themselves donated. Hijinks ensue.

Ultimately,Toy Story 3 comes down to a story about family. At first, the toys feel like Andy is their family – and I suppose they aren’t wrong. But what they realize is that they are their own family, and that they can face any threat, any disaster, and any change as long as they are together.

And yes, the end makes me cry. Every time.
