Are We In The Clear Yet?

I don't even know where I'm going with this to be honest but I feel like I need to write something or else I'll just sit in my corner eating ice cream and watching re runs of Pretty Little Liars. 



So lately...no...um...in the past couple of weeks, I've been going though the entire cycle of emotions. I start the day happy, then go into Yoda mode (preaching and shiz), then into this crazy fun chick, then into someone who thinks about every stupid thing she's ever done, then happy again and sometimes being an emotional wreck also finds it's way into the cycle. I don't know how this works but that's how almost every single day goes. I'm not complaining here because there is nothing to complain about. Everything is going my way, great friends (with the occasional ones who suck me into their mess), loving parents, and even school is hella good. But then why the hell am I just fine not hella good? 

Let me update you on what's been happening:

GA Day (Day 6)

Pain, it comes in all forms. The small twinge, a bit of soreness, the random pain, the normal pains that we live with every day. Then there's the kind of pain you can't ignore. A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else; makes the rest of your world fade away until all we can think about is how much we hurt. How we manage our pain is up to us. Pain. We anaesthetize, ride it out, embrace it, ignore it... and for some of us, the best way to manage pain is to just push through it. you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals.There are no solutions, no easy answers. You just breathe deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be managed, but sometimes the pain gets you when you least expect it, hits way below the belt and doesn't let up. You just have to fight through, because the truth is you can't outrun it, and life always makes more. -Meredith Grey

My Headphones #1

Sooooo I know that I have been away for far to long but the truth is nothing really happened. Well, things did happen but I just didn't know how to put them in words. I know that this is a lame excuse but sometimes you just have to regroup and let things fall in their places. The truth is, I was happy. I am happy. Extremely. And when you are content, you have nothing to rant about. Back to the title, I thought of yet another string of posts that I'll be writing. "My Headphones". It's pretty literal. Each month I will tell you ten songs that I have been playing on repeat, I will link the video/lyrics video and write my favourite bit of the lyrics (mostly the chorus, duh.) so that you can get an idea of what it's about. Warning: They could be new releases or from years/months ago. So here goes.

The Longbottoms

This is not some life experience or an intellectual post. Just a rant about something that has been bothering me ever since I've been a potterhead. 

So as you might know, a lot of stuff from the books didn't make it into the movies, for example, Peeves, Voldemort's backstory, Harry's sassiness. But what bothers me the most is that they completely looked over the detailed story about the Longbottoms. The "fans" who have just watched the movies have so little knowledge about what Neville was going through. They just think that he's a kid who lives with his grandmother, no big deal. 

Well, I'm here to enlighten the lot of you. 



The Longbottoms were a part of the fight against Voldemort. They were one of the bravest people out there. But they got captured and when they refused to give up even the slightest bit of information, they were tortured into insanity. They didn't even remember their own son. That's why Neville lives with the Grandma. Big deal…
