I want to know if I’m the only one.

fucking shit

Definitely. 

sooooo many times.

The amount of notes makes me sad

Wow the number makes me sad.

Why is that sad? The fact that we don’t all agree with our parents shows that we are capable, to some degree, of thinking on our own. That should be a celebrated thing. Unless you have some genuinely awful parents, there’s nothing bad about being a little stung or irritated that they don’t think exactly the way you do.

On “Severus Snape: A Slytherin Who Died Like A Gryffindor”

Here’s the thing:

Snape did not die like a Gryffindor.

Most of the Gryffindors at least those who are quintessential Gryffindors we see die go out in a blaze of bravery and glory, making some sort of dramatic final stand or protecting their loved ones

Snape didn’t do that.

Snape died trying to outsmart/ outwit Voldemort, trying to save his own life, trying to talk a psychopath out of murdering him.

He died like a Slytherin, but that’s a good thing!

Thank you for your warm welcome.

Your Excellency, Sir Nicholas, Mr President, thank you for inviting me and Catherine this afternoon. There cannot be a more impressive place than the iconic Sydney Opera House to begin our first visit together to Australia. I know that New South Wales is a very special place, and Catherine and I are looking forward to seeing that for ourselves over the coming days.

My last visit to Australia – in 2011 – was at a sad and testing time for the nation. A cyclone followed by flooding had devastated lives and property in Queensland, and bush fires had ravaged the State of Victoria. I am sorry to return to find that, yet again, fellow Australians in north Queensland are coping with the aftermath of another destructive cyclone.

Australia has much to contend with at the moment: your contribution to the ongoing search for MH370 has earned respect in every quarter of the globe. Australia’s determined and leading role in the search is at the very edge of technological ability and human endurance.

You have also responded with great generosity in the past few days to the natural disaster afflicting the Solomon Islands, which is suffering dreadfully from floods and successive earthquakes. Australia has led the international response in a way that is testament to the strength of your partnerships with your neighbours, and the important role that Australia plays both regionally and globally.

This visit to Australia has been one that Catherine and I have been looking forward to for a long time. On my first visit here as an adult in 2010, I remember just how bowled over I was by Sydney: seeing the energy and diversity of this beautiful city, and understanding just how much Australia is the home of innovation, opportunity and possibility.

I was well prepared: the affection that my grandmother The Queen has for this nation is infectious.

Her Majesty spoke recently of how, since her first visit here sixty years ago, she has been privileged to witness Australia’s growing economy and flowering self-confidence.

For Catherine, Harry and me, born in the early 80s, we’ve never known anything else – Australia and Australians have always been for us a beacon of confidence, creativity in the arts and sporting ability.

Harry felt very honoured to be invited to the centenary Fleet Review in Sydney harbour last year; and I know how much my father enjoyed his visit here in honour of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. My mother’s deep affection for Australia – which you were so kind to reciprocate – needs no reminder.

I don’t think I could finish these brief words to you without mentioning one other family member, George, who is now busy forging his own link with Australia. Catherine and I were very grateful for the many kind messages and gifts from across the country that we received when George was born. I suspect George’s first word might be ‘bilby’ – only because ‘koala’ is harder to say. We really look forward to our time here together as a family.

Australia is an inspiring place, as this amazing Opera House shows so vividly, and I know that a truly unforgettable few days lie ahead.
Thank you.

"I think every woman at one point or another in their life has been called a bitch. For a long time I had a real problem with that word, I didn’t like it and I thought it was derogatory. But I’ve gotten to a place now where I’ve made a lot of peace with it. It’s been so overused and made to seem so derogatory towards woman that I’ve adapted it into an empowering feeling for myself. If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch, if that’s what an assertive woman is to you. So I’ve sort of adapted it as a badge of honor."

the whole concept of flirting is just lost on me most of the time really. whenever someone is like “oh they were flirting with you” i’m just like. what. whenever someone is like “were you flirting with them?” i’m just like. what. whenever someone is like “oh you totally were flirting with them!” i’m just like. what. what is flirting. what is going on. what. i have no idea what’s going on. what

“Neither the Queen nor Prince Philip has any liking for slow-moving emotional or psychological dramas, infinitely preferring a film with plenty of plot and action. If things are slow on the screen, they are not above adding their own interjections, though perhaps not quite to the extent that the Queen’s father did when he was alive. “For heaven’s sake, get on with it, man!” the King would shout if the hero was perhaps too slow and dreamy in his lovemaking. Philip’s occasional wisecracks are couched in lower terms audible only to those nearest to him, while the Queen has a habit of forecasting aloud what she thinks is going to happen next. In the semi-darkness of her private movie theatre she gives full play to those inner feelings she is so good at concealing in public. A comedy sequence will invariably reduce her to peals of hearty laughter, while a moment of screen suspense has even been known to wrench a throaty scream from her.”   The Royal Family A Personal Portrait by Ralphe M. White and Graham Fisher (via goodqueenlilibet)

“So often serious in public, the Queen in private has a considerable sense of humor. There was an occasion when I encountered her in a corridor late at night following a royal banquet. She was tired, but in high spirits, walking along in her stockinged feet, her shoes in one hand, her tiara in the other. Seeing me, she put one hand to her back, bent forward and feigned a hobble. “Oo-er, me poor back,” she exclaimed, in cockney accents which would have done credit to Eliza Doolittle.”   The Royal Family A Personal Portrait by Ralphe M.

Britain’s Diana, Princess of Wales, sits next to pop-star Elton John, who cries during a memorial service for Italian stylist Gianni Versace in the Milan Cathedral - July 22, 1997

Life is so scary at times. Who would have imagined that barely a month later Elton would be singing a tribute song to Diana in her own funeral?

I really wanna cry now. And Oh god…22.7. George….
