day july

I wrote this on Facebook at 5:30 this morning

I woke up super early this morning and I think it’s just now fully hitting me that I actually finished the whole damn challenge. Yesterday I was proud, but right now, thinking about all the crap I’ve put my body through this year, the fact that I pushed myself far enough to finish is nothing short of a miracle. For that I am BEYOND proud.

And for those that don’t know, because I don’t broadcast it to the world, this last year was hard. I really struggled with depression, I laid in bed all day and binge ate like it was my job. I put off running a ton and spent my days napping instead. Between July and January I gained 70 pounds. I’ve lost a little bit of weight again, but I’m still up 30 pounds from where I was last year and not in as good of shape. But none of that matters right now because I finished. I may have ended up behind the scary Balloon Ladies at the end there, but I’m almost proud of that fact. I did it and I can’t believe it.

Just a reminder:

Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote In the Heights to prove that Latinos aren’t knife wielding criminals.

Lin-Manuel Miranda didn’t want to focus on the guy selling drugs on the corner, he wanted to focus on the guy who owns the corner store.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to show Latinos in college.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to show Latinos wishing to change the world.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to show Latino business owners.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to show even though Latino culture is different, we are still legitimate Americans.

Lin-Manuel Miranda set In the Heights happen during July 3rd to July 5th.

Lin-Manuel Miranda shows the barrio celebrating the 4th of July.

Lin-Manuel Miranda also shows the barrio being incredibly prideful of their country of origin.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is saying being proud of one country does not invalidate the love for another.

In the Heights is as much of an American Musical as Hamilton

Harry Potter Art Challenge- Day Eight : Favorite Quote

This is a quote from Dumbledore in Goblet of Fire. I thought it fit every character in the book so..

I’m sorry I’m rushing this so much but I have no time

Commission Me

*whispers* someone write a fic where Derek saves Stiles from a fire even though it’s terrifying for him to do because it reminds him of his family and then Stiles is all surprised and awed by it and Derek realizes that Stiles the secret love of his life almost died and then KISSING

SKAM thoughts of the day: Why we should appreciate, that Julie is taking her time.
  • We are all impatient. frustrated and don’t understand why it takes so long. We need a trailer, we all miss SKAM content!
  • It has never taken this long before. The trailers have come relatively quickly after the other seasons ended, so now we sit back and think, why does it take so long this time?
  • But we need to keep in mind, that season 1, 2 and 3 was roughly created in advance. Julie knew who the main characters would be, and their main storyline. 
  • I don’t know when she and NRK exactly decided that season 4 was going to happen, but probably sometime during season 3.
  • From there, Julie had to figure out the main character  and the storyline. She might have had a rough idea about it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she also wanted to examine the feedback from the fans and take their wishes into consideration - in terms of both the protagonist and his/her story/issues.
  • She also had to do research and perhaps find new actors for supporting roles associated with the new protagonist.
  • Julie undoubtedly takes SKAM very seriously, and she has proven that she really works into depth with the characters and their issues portrayed on the show. she does lots of interviews and is generally thorough in her preparations. She loves her show, and I have no doubt that she wants to make season 4 as meaningful as the other seasons.
  • Although the show seems so simple, it take time to create something as brilliant as SKAM!
  • Think about how awful it would be, if the production company behind Julie was a comercial company, that only had money on their mind, and didn’t really care about the meaningful content. If someone was breathing down her neck, because they knew the fans were LIT right now. If they didn’t give her the time she needed and the show lost all its depth. We have seen it so many times before with succesful tv-shows and movies, where they just want to exploit the success in order to make more money. Tv-shows and movie franchises often get worse and worse because they lose depth and character development.
  • WE DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN TO SKAM!
  • So be grateful Julie is taking her time. Be positive about it!
  • And with that said… I really want a trailer soon.
