i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit
"Looking at Maslany’s shooting scripts is something unlike any other actor, because there are multiple colors of papers and a ton, ton, ton of notes about her thoughts about the characters." - Graeme Manson

I WANT THIS SO BADLY.
These situations where I can’t make a choice because I’m too busy trying to envision the perfect one—that false perfectionism traps you in this painful ambivalence: If I do this, then that other thing I could have done becomes attractive. But if I go and choose the other one, the same thing happens again. It’s part of our consumer culture. People do this trying to get a DVD player or a service provider, but it also bleeds into big decisions. So my rule is that if you have someone or something that gets 70 percent approval, you just do it. ‘Cause here’s what happens. The fact that other options go away immediately brings your choice to 80. Because the pain of deciding is over. “
And,” he continues, “when you get to 80 percent, you work. You apply your knowledge, and that gets you to 85 percent! And the thing itself, especially if it’s a human being, will always reveal itself—100 percent of the time!—to be more than you thought. And that will get you to 90 percent. After that, you’re stuck at 90, but who the fuck do you think you are, a god? You got to 90 percent? It’s incredible!

SEVEN YEARS. SEVEN YEARSSS IN AZKABAN. Oh, wait, that wasn’t soul-sucking dementors, THAT WAS LIFE WITH NO NEW HARRY POTTER BOOK TO LOOK FORWARD TO. Jk, jk rowling. Sort of. But I can’t believe it’s actually been 7 years since I closed the pages on that final chapter just after sunset (How poetic. How fitting. And while dawn was breaking at Hogwarts…) (I know, I know, not nearly as fast as some of you. But I read it deeply, okay?). Back then I had just graduated from middle school (as Harry graduated from Hogwarts), and then I went through high school and graduated that (at the same time as the final movie. Can you say HP generation??), and now I am in college but soon I’ll graduate from that, too. I AM SO OLD. It has been so long and through it all my friends have stood faithfully beside me, those 7 well-worn books on my shelf (this is for dramatic effect, I have way more copies than that in my house). You might ask, really, Lydia, isn’t that getting a little old? After all this time? (I know, I know, I just had to set it up). And I, of course, reply with a fervent “Always.” Once a Potterhead, forever a Potterhead. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 #thefandomthatlives #rowlingswomanthroughandthrough #harryfreakinpotter
IT’S SO PRETTY
