if you follow my blog at all you’ll know that I absolutely fucking love Despicable Me. Like… LOVE. It’s one of my favorite movies of all time. The writing, the comedy, the timing, the animation; it’s all incredibly well put together.
In fact, I’m a fan of Illumination Studios in general.
Granted, I’m not a fan of their movies.
LE GASP you say. How can you be a fan of a studio but not all their movies.
Becuase, dear reader, their movies lack a lot of things. And, for the most part, many of their movies aren’t really displays of “We Do What We Want”. They’re more “We Do What the Audience Wants.” Which… sort of makes sense. They’re a new studio. They don’t have the funds to really take huge risks yet. But god, their audience-pleasing choices can be so….
Like remember that time a few people stood up and said “hey those Minions were sort of cool”
and Illumination Studios said
OKAY HOW ABOUT WE FLOOD THE WORLD
And brought us one of the most annoying things to grace this planet.
216. The houses helped students suffering from anxiety in different ways:
Mental health is such an important subject in Slytherin!
Every year the students in Slytherin celebrate their own ‘mental health week’ where they talk about issues such as anxiety and depression.
They are not afraid to tell their friends about their own issues with mental health, and always encourage each other to be open.
Whenever they find out about anyone suffering they will try to find out as much as possible about the subject, even the most stubborn pure-blood wizards and witches will turn to muggle literature.
Slytherin students own their anxiety, not the other way around.
They realise the importance of getting help, and always support those who want to talk to a therapist or psychologist.
One year they persuaded Dumbledore to hire a therapist to come to Hogwarts. The therapist was a huge success, appreciated by students (and teachers) from all houses, and has been there ever since.
Gryffindor students always offer to help anyone dealing with anxiety.
They know that everyone has their issues and that everyone needs to deal with them in their own way.
Gryffindors are all about facing their fears.
They will always help people suffering, and help them come up with a plan to feel better.
They pride themselves in conquering anxiety or depression, and will always celebrate every tiny step forward and any progress an individual makes towards conquering they’re metal health.
Many Gryffindors are very open regarding mental health, but they do not force anyone into telling people if they are not comfortable with that.
Hufflepuff students are amazing at dealing with anxiety!
They will always help anyone who needs it, in whatever way is needed.
Hufflepuffs will literally do anything to make you feel better.
They know that the most important thing is preventing mental health issues, and will always try to work long term.
Even though they want you to feel better now they know that sometimes you have to do things that makes you anxious to ensure that you’ll get better.
Whenever a student conquers their anxiety there will be a huge celebration. They know how hard it’s been and that they deserve all the appreciation.
Ravenclaws are all about getting to the root of the problem and getting better that way.
They will accept your boundaries, but will always challenge you to face your fears.
They often host little science projects related to mental health regarding different students experiences, where they do experiments and analyse the results in order to try and better understand the mental illnesses and how to help people conquer them.
They are very understanding that everyone needs to deal with anxiety and mental health in different ways, and will never do anything that might hurt you in any way.
102. There is a secret passageway from the hufflepuff common room to the kitchen. The hufflepuff students all know about the passage and they use it to visit the elves and bring back food to their common room. The older students also use it to suggest food for special occasions, such as birthdays.
