I just stabbed myself with my pencil while taking notes on George Eliot’s Romola. I’ve only been in grad school for a week and I’m already bleeding for my Master’s degree.
I think you know you’ve found someone special when you meet them for the first time, and it feels like you’re just picking up where you left off. You kind of look at them and think
‘Where the hell did you come from? Where the hell have you been?’

God just spoke to me right here.
You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less.
What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back.
I have a lot of feelings about Neville Longbottom as a Hogwarts professor.
Seriously, think about it.
Neville organizing tutoring sessions and study groups for kids who have trouble with their classes like he did.
Neville using positive reinforcement with his students as opposed to humiliation and punishment (because he remembers being 13 years old and having his boggart turn into his professor- an authority figure should never be a kid’s worst nightmare).
Neville creating events that foster unity between ALL the Hogwarts houses as opposed to creating rifts between them.
Neville getting sidetracked during conversations with students and going off on excited rambling tangents about different kinds of plants.
Neville Longbottom is the best. That is all.
so uh do you like chipotle?
This is God’s truth. Tell it like it is!
…while “the female gaze” is attracted by things like a naked, sweaty Chris Evans or Idris Elba, it’s also attracted by things like: men smiling in sweaters, men crying (DON’T LIE TUMBLR), barefoot fragile Sebastian Stan in the rain on Political Animals, men holding babies, men speaking foreign languages, Mark Ruffalo, and a whole bunch of weird stuff on Ao3 that I don’t even wanna get into. And that’s just “the female gaze as it pertains to men.”
