The Magic of Willy Wonka

About two weeks ago, I attended the Summer Sessions movie event at Jackson Court where the feature movie was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Although I am not a big fan of the movie, I did enjoy some aspects of the event. For me, the best part had to be the free candy.  (The struggle is real in college and anytime I see advertisements for free food or candy, I have to be there).

The disappointing part of the event was that I did not receive a Golden Ticket. I wanted to be Charlie that night, but my dream never came true.  I guess maybe that is why I had to leave the event before the movie ended; it was just too hard to see Charlie on the screen and know that I could never be him.
