Stephanie, a 21 year old undergraduate psychology major at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I'm a mix of California and North Carolina, a beach loving, accepting of everyone, southern girl. I've been dating the same man for almost six years. I love music of all kinds (well mostly, I'm not a rap fan), reading, WoW, tons of different fandoms, animals, cooking, and girl scout cookies.


“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

 

Today I decorated a fellow Tar Heel’s cookie cake based on the card/board game Settlers of Catan (a really fun game everyone should play). It has the colors and pieces and board tiles and everything. #picstitch #cookiecake #settlersofcatan

The reason I didn’t like Tauriel so much is not because she isn’t from the books. It’s because of how invincible she seems. She is pretty, ridiculously brave, wise, and from what we see so far, kind. She seems perfect, and that’s what irks me. Not one flaw other than recklessness, but of coarse, her recklessness saved Kili, which I think is another one of the reasons I don’t enjoy her as much as the rest. I hope the third Hobbit can redeem her flawlessness.

there’s something really interesting in this passage that I wanted to point out Trelawney assumes that Harry was born in midwinter because of his “dark hair” and “mean stature” and “tragic losses so young in life” Tom Riddle was born in midwinter, is describe in CoS as resembling Harry, and his mother died right after his birth Harry has a piece of Voldemort’s soul in him that’s why Trelawney made that assumption

I pointed this out in my Harry Potter class today and everyone started yelling and about five people told me to go to hell

this was so confusing when i first read it because i’m australian and in australia july IS midwinter

but hold on HARRY POTTER CLASS?

I keep having TFIOS epiphanies.  This one involved turning the clouds into a Venn diagram, and then having the overlap in the shape of infinity.

And you can’t not make that.

Can we all take a moment to appreciate the Third Doctor’s colorful insults

Of course, Louisiana has earned its reputation for discrimination. As a boy, I watched mothers of classmates spit on a crucifix held up by our parish priest as he attempted to lead a little black girl to a waiting car the day my Catholic school was integrated in New Orleans. But I witnessed incidents of racial prejudice that shocked me just as deeply in summer visits to my mother’s hometown of Brooklyn. So I grew up thinking of racism as American rather than Southern.

But prejudice is not really the point of these Louisiana stories—at least not the prejudice of the characters in these tawdry tales. It is simply one of the mechanisms along with religious fundamentalism, right-wing politics, and ill-educated speech that confirm the intellectual and moral superiority of the viewers over the villains and buffoons that have been scripted for their pleasure by pandering to their biases.
