Whenever I feel like there’s nothing to live for, I remember that Fili and Kili die at the end of The Hobbit. The Tumblr shitstorm is going to be legendary.

Some gals dream of a Breakfast at Tiffanys. Me? I’d much prefer a late lunch at the library.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Harry, but I wish he would have appreciated Remus a bit more than he did.

American literature classics are to be replaced by insulation manuals and plant inventories in US classrooms by 2014. A new school curriculum which will affect 46 out of 50 states will make it compulsory for at least 70 per cent of books studied to be non-fiction, in an effort to ready pupils for the workplace. Books such as JD Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye and Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird will be replaced by “informational texts” approved by the Common Core State Standards. Suggested non-fiction texts include Recommended Levels of Insulation by the the US Environmental Protection Agency, and the Invasive Plant Inventory, by California’s Invasive Plant Council. The new educational standards have the backing of the influential National Governors’ Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, and are being part-funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

james turning down every hogsmeade invitation by telling them he’s going stag

Sirius spreading a rumour that he has a cat just so when people ask him about it he can go, “Nah, I’m a dog person.”

Peter being loud so when a teacher chews him out, he can promise to be “quiet as a mouse”

Remus turning into a fucking werewolf

“You likely got into a grad school because you are one of the best of the best. Don’t forget just how much you’re capable of, especially when you begin running into walls. Everyone has a ceiling, and success is learning how to manage yours when you hit your head on it.”

Rich Astudillo
