i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that
Tiredd. Wish I was with my J1ten fam instead of at work. :-(
All the kitties want to be in my room today. <3
Oh god guys. JK Rowling is a genius, and so is this person.
the thing I love about this fandom is that there are 7 books and 8 movies to observe. so every once in a while some blessed soul finds a piece of information that makes all the magic resurface again
Oh Lord…it’s a metaphor too. It’s symbolic of Neville holding on to his past, the horrors of what happened to his parents, of being a passive vessel for that atrocity. As if the terrible thing kept happening and would never stop happening.
When he moves forward and becomes part of his own story instead of the story of his past, his strength surges.
Reblogging this again because it got better
I’m literally getting teary-eyed right now. I was never that much into Harry Potter, sure I read all the books and saw all the movies and complained about how much they left out from the books. But I never really submerged myself into the story or the universe, you could say, as much as some people I know who are like mega!fans. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, everyone’s different. But I’ve just noticed that I’m getting more and more attached to and like appreciative of HP now that the series is over.
Like I almost value it more now and I think it’s because I know that we’ll never get anything quite like it. And I think that’s an amazing and beautiful thing. And there’s sort of a HP generation that like has a certain comradery if you will, that like was reading the books when they were first coming out and had to wait and wait and wait for the next one and then had to do it all over again and at the same time with the movies.
And it’s just really cool that there’s still so much of the HP universe that we don’t know yet and are still learning things about it. And it’s still teaching us things and reminding us of things. And like someone said above, making all the magic resurface again.
I just think it’s cool.
[Gifset: Demi Lovato saying “I’ve dealt with mental illnesses, and my father dealt with mental illness, and…He wasn’t able to function well in society. That happens to a lot of people. This week I am launching the Lovato Treatment Scholarship Program. I’m helping one person at a time. I’m going to pay for their treatment.”]
Demi Lovato is going to launch The Lovato Scholarship Program in honor of her father.
it’s so refreshing to see someone as famous and popular as she is with teen girls be so honest about mental illness
It’s also really refreshing to see a celebrity putting money into getting actual treatment for people, not just vague “awareness”.
This is one of the greatest things ever. Photo courtesy of @kylieburrr. I look like Gretchen from the Saturday morning cartoon Recess, I love it! She was one of my favorite characters.
