CAN I GET A HELL YEAH IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING WITH YOUR LIFE AND YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP
I mean I’m not saying there aren’t any good fathers in the world. I’m just saying that to be considered a good dad a man has to do maybe 20% of what a woman has to do to be even a mediocre mom.
Like a picture of a dude giving his baby a bath can get 133,000 notes. But if a woman didn’t bathe her child they’d run her out of town with a pitchfork like a monster. You never hear somebody ask a pregnant woman at her baby shower “Are you going to help change diapers?” and giggle. Everyone assumes that this mother won’t let her baby sit around in it’s waste. But they will ask the expectant dad that EVERY FUCKING TIME.
Men get praised when they do things that women are expected to do thanklessly.
And under here, Hedwig”—Harry pulled open a door under the stairs—“is where I used to sleep; You never knew me then— Blimey, it’s small, I’d forgotten… .”
Harry looked around at the stacked shoes and umbrellas, remembering how he used to wake every morning looking up at the underside of the staircase, which was more often than not adorned with a spider or two. Those had been the days before he had known anything about his true identity; before he had found out how his parents had died or why such strange things often happened around him. But Harry could still remember the dreams that had dogged him, even in those days: confused dreams involving flashes of green light and once—Uncle Vernon had nearly crashed the car when Harry had recounted it—a flying motorbike..
Oh look, another job rejection after I took a day off work (therefore lost a day’s wages) to travel half way across the country (paying for petrol & parking) to go to an interview which I spent hours and hours preparing for, and then a week later they just send me an email to say thanks but no thanks
And this is the latest in a long line of similar rejections, plus the hundreds of applications I’ve sent off over the last almost two years that just get ignored
And did I mention that I have a degree, a postgraduate qualification and LOTS of different voluntary experience but apparently that’s not enough anymore, if you want a job you must be perfect in every way
It’s 2014 why is there no dating website for Harry Potter fans
Ok so I live in Edinburgh, Scotland and my house is about a mile away from JK Rowling’s.
Around the time The Casual Vacancy came out my mum and sister were in a shop and my mum saw the book and went “JK Rowling wrote a book for adults? I bet that’s rubbish” and she turned aroUND AND JKR WAS STANDING BEHIND HER.
MY MOTHER INSULTED MY HERO TO HER FACE. BUT JK DIDNT EVEN REACT SHE JUST WALKED AWAY.
It really, really, really, really irks the shit out me when people in The Casual Vacancy tag bash the book, and then say they didn’t finish it. How can you form a complete opinion and give something a rating if you didn’t even finish the story? You could say I couldn’t finish it because it wasn’t grabbing me, but don’t form the opinion that something was “bad” when you never even reached the end. They make hard statements as if they’re knowledgeable about the entire story when really it just makes them look like a dumbass.
I got my eyebrows threaded for the first time today I hope you’re proud Scarlet
My eyes streamed like hell and my forehead was a massive red stripe afterwards but yay well-shaped eyebrows
