look man draco malfoy is a sad nerd baby who has had everything handed to him and has probably never asked a girl out let alone seen a boob
this is the same nerd who wrote weasley is our king and thought potter stinks was brilliant he is a nerd and i’d probably shove him into a locker
okay, most of what i do re: harry potter is criticism, and hp is flawed in such a number of ways, but sometimes i just sit here and
i mean, you all have a comprehension of just how drastically harry potter changed literature, yeah? like. it revitalized it. it blew the literary scene apart. the new york times had to create a separate bestseller’s list for children’s lit just because harry potter existed. harry potter changed reading.
so many people on tumblr were born in the ’90s. when the first book came out, most of us couldn’t read. but we grew up in a world where everyone, everyone, everyone was reading harry potter, no matter how old they were; we grew up in a world where the most popular story in the entire world was a fantasy children’s book.
it’s sort of difficult to grasp, sometimes, the extent to which harry potter is not just a book. the extent to which what is basically a series of fun, interesting, and fairly good novels is such an enormous, enormous part of our lives, a cultural touchstone, a truly universal reference point, something so many people have shaped their lives around, a foundation for all of the stories we would read and watch for the rest of our lives— for so many of us, the first books we ever loved
the extent to which so many of us can’t call ourselves “fans” of harry potter, because it would like being a “fan” of, like, having lungs.
it’s not even about liking it or disliking it. it’s just a part of us.
- Have you eaten in the last 4ish hours?
- Have you had something to drink today?
- Can you have something, even if just milk or water or cup’o’noodles or toast with something yummy on it, if you haven’t, please?
- If you have any injuries, can you please take care of them for me?
Whatever you have or haven’t done today just know you’re super strong and I am so proud of you
Okay you can go back to blogging now~ <3
Funny you should mention that…
It’s my old axe but it still works like a charm.
is it a good show or is it just dark and gritty with a high production salary and middle age white dudes?-a question y’all need to ask yourself
When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit.
That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.

Anastasia Trivia: The musical number “Paris Holds the Key (To Your Heart)” features a cameo by Josephine Baker, an American-born French dancer, singer, and actress who was a world-famous entertainer. She refused to perform for segregated audiences in America and is known for contributions to the Civil Rights movement, assisting the French Resistance during World War 11, receiving the French military honor, the Croix de guerre and was made a Chevalier of the Légion d’honneur by General Charles de Gaulle. She rose to fame performing the Danse sauvage wearing a costume made of bananas and little else. In later shows in Paris, she was often accompanied on stage by her pet cheetah, Chiquita, who was adorned with a diamond collar. The cheetah frequently escaped into the orchestra pit, where it terrorized the musicians, adding another element of excitement to the show.
I found this list and I felt like I need to share it with everyone. Because this is so important.
Please don’t feel miserable as an artist. Don’t be that miserable person.
I want to add few words to the first point here. This is very personal for me.
I need to constantly think about this.
Just be better version of Yourself not another version of someone else.
And this is the problem not only mine but I saw many people who feel miserable because they compare themselves to other artists.
They compare the art, the methods of doing, workflows, approach. It just stops You from doing a thing, going forward and makes you feel bad.
You will be noticed because of who You are. Eventually You will find Your way. People will recognize You. Don’t be a copy of an artist who is a copy of another artist. Do Your thing.
Find people who will encourage You in what You do.
Collaborate with another passionate people like You.
Feel good with what You do.
And life will bring You what You want.
Hope this words make a better day for some of You.
Hugs for all!
