Never trust people who don’t tag their posts.

what are they thinking

what are they hiding

where are their FEELS 

nobody knows

It means we have an addiction to the alt + reblog function.

last night it occurred to me that sirius black being colorblind would make a lot of sense

bc like

i dunno dogs and stuff

but imagine a red-green colorblind sirius

but he CANT TELL THE COLORS APART

HE CHEERS FOR THE WRONG TEAM AT QUIDDITCH MATCHES probably.

"AW YEAH GRYFFINDOR SCORES!!!!"

"Padfoot, that’s your brother who scored."

"NOT FUCKING AGAIN"

Do you think it'd be necessary to go to a writing school for a person to be a good writer? Did you attend a professional writing school?

maxkirin:

Hello there, writerly friend~ ♥︎

I’m actually kind of surprised that I have yet to touch on this subject. So, I would like to thank you for sending in your question c; That being said, the answer to your question is pretty simple.

Short answer:

No.

Long answer:

Neil Gaiman, Maya Angelou,  H. G. Wells, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, J. K. Rowling (who got a B.A in French, of all things xD), Arthur Conan Doyle, Ray Bradbury (which I think it’s the most ironic, seeing as how SO MANY people in high school get to read the works of an almost-high-school-dropout), and the list goes on and on.

No. I don’t think that in order to be a good writer you need to go to ‘writing school.’ You don’t need ‘formal’ education in any art to be good at it, you just need to be passionate about what you do and always be looking out to improve your craft. Simple as that. There will be people out there who will try to tell you that unless you go to college you are wasting your time, and I would instead urge you to research, ask people (as you are doing now) and make your own choice.

As for me, I took a bunch of creative writing courses in college. Looking back on them, I didn’t learn anything that I hand’t picked up in high-school by that point (except for maybe the Marcy Rule). No. The best part of that class was really not the class itself…

It was the empowerment. It was a place where we all wrote. It was a place where we were encouraged to write— and you had to write, after all everyone had to turn in 10 pages of writing every week. It was also a nice place to meet other writers, and create a community.

But don’t let that fool you. I quickly realized — because I’m self-centered to know when I am becoming lazy — that I soon outgrew the pace of the classes. During my metamorphosis (when I finished my first book) I realized that the class was slowing me down. I was comfortable with writing 2.5K words a week and calling it done— but I wanted more than that, I wanted to write more.

So, I moved on. I found a pace for myself, made this blog, and have been writing stories ever since. Simple as that.

Remember that I am not saying that you should skip on school altogether, or that you should go to college. I am giving you the power to choose for yourself. Going to college may be helpful— but do not expect, for one second, that having a piece of paper saying that you graduated from a creative writing course makes you inherently better than any other writer.

There is no ‘quick’ or ‘easy’ way to become a better writer. Whether you go to school or not, you are going to have to put in the hours, and write.

If you don’t think that this is an empowering message, I want you to take a moment and realize that there have been amazing writers who attended university and amazing writers who did not. This means that it’s not where you go— but your own passion and dedication that dictates your own success. This means that what you do with your talent is up to you. You hold the entire power of creation in your hands.

And if that is not empowering, then I don’t know what is c;

holy shit dude

If you don’t know Alex, I suggest you read up on him. Because yeah, sure, any parrot can mimic, but Alex was one of the first to prove on many occasions that he understood the meaning behind the words he said.
With that in mind, just think about what he said for a sec. Alex had to understand on some level that death means leaving. That’s fucking mindblowing.

Alex also was shown to have the intelligence of a young child, anywhere from 3 to 5 years old. He could do basic addition and subtraction, and independently taught himself the concept of zero (something that most CIVILIZATIONS couldn’t do!) He had a vocabulary of thousands of words, some of which he made up himself, and had deep interpersonal bonds with many scientists and trainers, as well as other parrots. 
Alex the parrot is basically the coolest bird ever.

animals are often smarter than you think. There is/was a gorilla they taught sign language to. And one day she asked for a kitten. they gave her a stuffed animal but she signed sad. She wanted a real one. She was allowed to choose one from a litter. 
She named it All Ball and she loved it.
Except one day All Ball escaped from the cage and was hit by a car. And this shows you just how much animals can understand. They signed what had happened but didn’t think the gorilla would understand. But she started making weeping, howling/crying sounds and the signs for bad, sad, etc. 
And then “Sleep, cat”. She understood death.
She’s had two kittens since then.
Animals understand more than you think. Depends on the animal, yes. 

Oh well there goes my heart…

White people will literally tattoo ANYTHING on their bodies. ABSOLUTELY. ANYTHING.

why is she tattooing tea on her? did tea save her life? 

I have this feeling that she doesn’t even know what chai means. Probably thought it was spiritual or something. I’m patiently waiting for her response lmao

CHAI IS THE HEBREW WORD FOR LIFE HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THE PICTURE IT SAYS #Hebrew THE WRITING IS IN HEBREW YA’LL ARE BEING PURPOSEFULLY IGNORANT TO SHAME A “WHITE” GIRL WHO ISN’T EVEN WHITE

AYYYY Jew stepping in here.  Chai (chet-Yud) translates to “Life”. Which is what we say out of respect to the familes of those who die. But most importantly it is a symbol of the jewish religion, this being from the saying “Am Yisrael Chai” translating to “The children of Israel are alive”.  Do you know how awesome it is to see someone embracing my culture? I’ve grown up scared to even mention that i’m jewish to people in fear of being attacked or killed. So to see someone tattoo it on themselves is awesome! I mean yeah the Torah forbids it, but it also forbids most medicines so fuck that. All you SJWs go on about “appropriating other people cultures”. But did any of you think to actually ask a Jew?  No.  You all assumed she had “Tea” tattooed on her because saying you’re open minded is completely different to actually having an open mind.
Here’s a little saying for you by Hillel."he who refuses to learn deserves extinction.”
And you didn’t even try to learn.  

Your Anti-Semitism disgusts me and i hope you learnt a lesson here.ps summer-tryst You have embarassed the hell out of yourself. Enjoy eating your own words since Chai “Isnt even spiritual”.  nahh. it just represents the religion that all monotheistic faiths are built upon.  totally not religious.
