Retired

This blog is as close to retired as it could get. I’m not very active anymore, neither am I on tumblr in general. I can be found on my other tumblr where I look for inspiring or relevant things for my projects. Take this as a friendly note that I won’t be getting close and personal very much, possibly because I’ve found different outlets for my emotions. Thanks for the time you took to read this, I love you all.

The message of Twilight is indeed to find love. And to stay with that love even if it is physically, mentally or emotionally damaging to you. The messages of Harry Potter are the importance of friendship, love (not necessarily romantic), intelligence (not necessarily of the book kind), courage (which can be the smallest thing imaginable) and acceptance.

Harry Potter actually tells us how to make important decisions. It tells us that sometimes you will face problems that are about more than just you. It tells you that sometimes you have to be selfless. And that sometimes you have to be selfish.

Harry Potter is about a group of smart, courageous, loving, wonderful characters trying to defeat Lord Voldemort. Which, by the way, is a metaphor for the power of friendship and love. Harry Potter tells us that friendship is so, so much more important than power.

Harry Potter is absolutely beautifully written, and the character development is the best I’ve ever seen. If you want an example, take Neville Longbottom. Over the course of seven years and seven books, he changes from a scared, shy, self-deprecating little boy who thinks he’s useless into a brave, resilient, intelligent, self-sacrificing and self-confident young man.

Harry Potter got eight movies, the last book was split into two because there is too much important and intricate detail to fit into one movie. The last Twilight book was split into two movies in an attempt to copy Harry Potter in order to make more money.

Edward and Jacob, as far as I can tell, are rather flat characters. I’m not really in a  position to judge here. Ron Weasley also has some frankly amazing character development. He makes mistakes, he acknowledges them and he learns from them. 

Hermione Granger is wonderful. She is intelligent, compassionate, loyal, dependable, and brave. And one of the most wonderful things about her is that she knows it. She knows that she’s good. She doesn’t moon around pretending to dislike herself, she just gets on with her life. But the absolute best thing about Hermione Granger is that she didn’t let romantic love take over her life. When the love of her life left, she kept going. She didn’t shut down.

That is why Harry Potter is and always will be the best, most wonderful, most brilliant book series of all time.

Probably the most accurate thing ever.

I feel like the point of twilight should have been give up on love that is damaging both physically and mentally…

Meshu – Turn Her Foursquare Check-In Data Into Jewelry


i watched this on the news, it was in melbourne in 2009, it’s about a lady that was waiting for the train, and she had her baby in a pram, and as the train was coming the pram rolled onto the tracks, the lady closest to the edge is the mother, she tried to grab the pram but it feel onto the track, amazingly the baby survived with literally only a scratch on the forehead because it was still strapped securley into the pram, people say that the dark shadow over the pram is some kinda of guardian angel that kept the baby alive

A mother’s 200-year-old gift to anatomy.
“The woman in labor has no name. She must have had one at some point, but as bad luck would have it, she was hit and killed by a carriage as she walked in front of the San Carlos Royal College of Surgery, back in 18th-century Madrid.
Nobody claimed the body, whose round belly contained a child about to be born. It was quite a windfall for the surgeons in training at the school, which was always short of corpses on which to learn anatomy.
The body handlers proceeded according to customs of the era: mud was applied and a mold created; this mold was filled with wax, and today it remains the most striking sculpture of those at the Complutense University School of Medicine. She is a Pietá lying back against a chair with her belly sliced open like a pomegranate and the fetus exposed, its little head pointing down. She is a life-like, life-size wax statue.”

“My local library branch started doing this “Blind Date with a Book” thing, thought you guys might like it. The shelf was full when we got there, but was like this as we were leaving. The books are wrapped in paper and have different designs on them, and then a few words vaguely describing the subject matter of the book. Things like “Drama”, “Plot Twists”, “espionage”, etc. The only thing exposed on the book is the barcode that you use to scan the book out. I thought it was a pretty cool idea.”


OMG awesome. I would so do something like this if I had time.
