I think that if voldemort really wanted to kill harry potter the night the spell didn’t work on him he could’ve just picked him up and thrown him out a window given the fact that he was a one year old infant
I don’t think there’s any word in the english language i dislike more than sorry. i’ve seen it just chuck at me during a really shitty time like it’s going to just band aid the hurtful things they’ve said and done.
“I wrote “Bootylicious” because, at the time, I’d gained some weight and the pressure that people put you under, the pressure to be thin, is unbelievable. I was just 18 and you shouldn’t be thinking about that.You should be thinking about building up your character and having fun, and the song was just telling everyone to forget what people are saying, you’re bootylicious. That’s all. It’s a celebration of curves and a celebration of women’s bodies.”—Beyonce
I find it hard to believe that it’s only 2 more months away before 2013 ends. Mostly because I’ve done so much in this year alone, I lost track of time.
This year was filled a lot with me going out of my comfort zone and just being surrounded by very very amazing people who were so tremendously encouraging. I’ve had some challenges but all I overcame with high spirits, just patting the dust off my jeans and elbows as I solved them. That’s a sign I think that I’ve grown a little than before.
Last year, I found myself being very sad cause I felt like I lost a huge chunk of myself to a few experiences before. I remember thinking I can never get those good parts of myself now, and there’ll always be this huge hole in me.
Fast forward last Sunday, I realized that I’ve been wrong, those parts of myself were never lost in the first place, they’ve just been misplaced or chucked elsewhere that I just needed time to return in it’s place. That huge hole was simply imaginary. All these current things about myself, were ever present, just hidden.
I keep saying this but it’s because I don’t want to forget that I owe it to everyone on here. To John, Alan, DFTBA, my friends, people I’ve worked with, my family and you followers, I have you guys to thank. For believing in me, for making me find my way back.
my take on this was that we’re given an idea so much that loving someone meant fixing them when it’s like that quote i liked so much, i painted twice: “You can’t save people, you can only love them”
clear and well that message is stated in both videos. for kara it’s that you don’t need to save the situation, you can come to live with it or love it. she didn’t say she was ugly to say it was a poor thing or that it was something she felt ashamed about, she was stating that regardless whatever it was you felt or how you viewed yourself, it’s completely fine, completely great and completely okay.
as for tessa, her point on us not listening was directly relevant to that quote. we keep thinking that we need to save people from their negative thoughts instead of just holding their hands, compassionately letting them speak and express how something made them feel.
perhaps that’s what we need, to not try to think how can i fix this or change this person’s point of view but instead how can i grow with this person and understand how they feel. to open our minds to understand everyone has their own thought pattern, and it may be difficult or frustrating to understand that. like Kara said, as long as that didn’t come in the way of someone living their lives or you living yours, it’s alright.
I gave a speech?presentation?talk? today at an event held by AMCHAM Malaysia (American Chamber of Commerce) and I’m still trying to process that I actually stood in front of a room filled with 40 plus people and shared with them my thoughts on being a young girl from the Gen Y.
Mostly, I’m grateful and thankful for the people who gave me the opportunity to speak, who believed and trusted my talents.
Ahhh, this has been such an interesting experience.
during times like these i feel like i haven’t been doing enough or i haven’t been trying my best. (it’s a bad mindset i think cause sometimes i think i need to pat myself on the back for a job done well)
i was invited to be a judge for a program called Young Enterprise, introduced to high school students by the American Chamber of Commerce, where I got to interact with many different people from the industry. i was obviously a rookie and the youngest in the lot.
it’s intimidating but i’m very appreciative for the opportunity given.
that aside, i’m starting my scholarship/university applications soon. which i’m very scared and nervous and anxious and just generally all over the place about!!!!!
as much as The Conjuring freaked me out last night, today i have a ton of things that i remember i need to attend to and i haven’t and on top of that i’m being pulled by the neck with responsibilities (tl;dr: asian family traditions) so i don’t think i have to be scared anymore.
and wishing those who completed ramadan, happy eid!
“You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things.”— Jamie Tworkowski (via rawie)
