Guys this picture is so important to me. Sometimes i back out of cosplaying a character because im worried people will judge me or shame me for doing it because im black. Im constantly worried people wont take my cosplays seriously because im just a black girl dressing up as iconic white characters. And sometimes that fear makes me feel like I shouldnt do it, like cosplaying isnt for me and I shouldnt go to cons.
But meeting this little girl made me understand how important it is to show my love for characters even if they arent my race. This little girl came up to me and asked for a picture at LexCon, and I almost cried. She came up to me the ONLY black Harley in a sea of perfectly “accurate” white Harleys. And I was so happy she did, and so happy I was there. Im glad I chose to cosplay a character I love, and to be there representing black cosplayers, because now this little girl might have a little bit more confidence in herself. Maybe my being there helped this little girl see that even girls like her can be geeky and cosplay whoever they want.
I really hope so. I know this made me feel more confident. And this is a picture im gonna treasure forever!

It’s Hotel Kakslauttanen! This is their glass igloo village where you can watch the beautiful and vivid northern lights from your bed. How wild would that be?! There is so much do and experience here. If you are brave enough you can take it one step further than the glass igloo, and sleep in real snow-built igloos! Of course, they have cabins too (that are absolutely amazing and drool worthy). I would love to go someday!

Who will go here with me! Pleaseee

Anonymous asked: This may be a dumb question, but what does being in love feel like? My parents are getting divorced (it's been a long time coming), my aunt's marriage is falling apart, my grandmother has loathed my grandfather for the past 50 years, and I guess some of my friends' parents are in love, but it seems weird to ask them. I mean, I know that long term not just friend love is a thing, but I don't really get it, even though I think I want it.

marchingjaybird:

It’s not a dumb question, but it’s kind of a hard one to answer.

Love is one of those things that people are always trying to explain and a lot of times it comes out all poetic and seems like it’s meaningful, but really when you break it down they’re basically just saying “Idk, it’s pretty nice and makes me feel all goopy inside”.

The thing is, there are different types and degrees of love, and what one person considers being in love might not be what another person considers being in love. For me, it’s like the best friendship I’ve ever had. Nicki and I are always together unless one or both of us is at work, and even then we text each other constantly. Meeting her was like meeting a part of my brain that I didn’t realize was missing. She fills a space in my life that no one else can. I think, really, that’s what love should be like. Too many people assume that it’s supposed to be passionate and all-consuming and shit, like you read in books, but in my personal experience, the relationships that tend to last are the ones that are quiet and comfortable and companionable.

Which is not to say that it’s easy. Love is hard and it’s something that you have to really work at. There’s no person that’s going to just easily slot into your life and bend to your wishes and agree with you all the time. You have to compromise and cooperate, and sometimes you’ll have goals that you can both work towards, and sometimes you’ll have separate goals and you’ll have to support each other. Sometimes you get to be selfish, but sometimes they get to be selfish, too, and you have to accept that even though you’re in love, you won’t always agree with each other. There are a lot of adult conversations involved in making love work, where you have to sit down and talk rationally instead of screaming and calling names like you might want to.

I don’t know if that even begins to explain anything, but that’s the best I can do. :/ Hope it helps!!

I had my boyfriend who smokes use matches for a few days instead of a lighter and record the date and time and whatever he was thinking about while smoking. 
It’s funny that he quit smoking a few weeks after this project.

idk man, imagine showing Arthur Weasley a gif for the first time. At first of course he’d just think it was a normal wizard photograph, but then you’d explain that muggles made it and his heart would just explode with joy over these muggles making such amazing shit even though they have no magic at all. How amazing. How inventive.

Maybe whenever you’re feeling bad about yourself imagine how much Arthur Weasley would enjoy meeting you.

Thank you
