You’re better than this. Better than whatever it is you’re going to do now.

— Richelle Mead, Last Sacrifice (via observando)


Rowling wrote Hermione to eschew stereotypes. She doesn’t end up with the hero; she is never there to function as Harry’s love interest. She prefers Arithmancy to Divination in school. Hermione is also a total badass, despite her prim and proper reputation. (…) So often, female characters are allowed to be aggressive or rebellious, but in exchange are stripped of any traditionally feminine qualities and instead are forced to pick up traditionally masculine traits. However, Hermione is never made to do that. Most notably, she is written to be highly logical and emotionally expressive, a combination not commonly afforded to most of today’s leading ladies.(x)


"Do you consider yourself a feminist?"
“I don’t really think about things as guys versus girls. I never have. I was raised by parents who brought me up to think if you work as hard as guys, you can go far in life.”

- Taylor Swift 2012

"As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means."

- Taylor Swift 2014

Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.

Many things are bothering me, and I don’t know where to start.

I’ve read my classmate’s blog, and it surprises me on how my choice also have hurt her. On how many my casualties are.
Don’t get me wrong, I only chose what made me happy. I based it on how someone can show me how special I am to him, and how he can make me happy. After all, love was never in my dictionary before. Still, I can’t blame him for all his efforts to me, he is just doing what he thinks will make us happy. Up to now, I can’t define what my feelings for him is. I don’t know if this is finally a true devotion, or is this just a mere liking? Is he only my puppy affection or is he the unconditional love I deserve. I am still young, but this is the reality of being a teenager. I don’t know how many people like and dislike me, but the mere fact of people loving me because of being true to myself makes me so overwhelmed. I am a firm believer of trust and loyalty, so please do bear with me.

To you (whom I have unintentionally hurt),
I am so sorry. I am just trying to find an answer to all my queries. I am just a bare definition of a confusion. I am happy now, and I wish you well. You have a special place in my heart, but we could still remain friends. The friend that I have known 4 years ago, the friend that made me laugh for so long. I miss your lanky legs and your cute nose. You once called me your bestfriend, your “mare”, your seatmate. But what happened? I am happy with him now, and I wish you could accept the fact that he made me contented with what I have and I couldn’t ask for more. I think I love him, but still I am in denial. I know it hurts, but please, I wish you happiness because you deserve it.

To the other casualties,
You girls are one of the best I have known, and you are a great part of my puzzling high school experience. You are my roadtrip buddies, my foodie friends, my homies. I know, somehow, that both of you likes him, but the sad truth is, he likes me. I wish he could just move on from me so he could see the two of you. I would vow before God that I would never spill it but your secrets should be properly told to each other. I never intended to hurt the both of you. Please make him happy, and I wish you happiness too.

To my Baho,
I like you. And I think I already love you. I am just waiting for the right moment to tell you. I have a lot to say but my mind tells me to stop. I was never confused about my feelings for you, and I never will be. Please wait for me, because at the right time, I could finally say the right words to you, without second thoughts and hindrances. Please be with me, and I will be yours. :)

Once, I have read, that all teenagers come to a point in their lives that they feel that they are being judged by society because they show their true personality. And This Is It.

I found the giraffes making love on the  TFIOS movie

I’ve been waiting for SO LONG for this post! This is the most definite Nerdfighter reference in the movie…so pleased!

Is this real? I did not notice this while we were filming. I wonder if  propsmaster Kelly did this? (She’s a nerdfighter, so it’s possible.)
