life and adventures of maya

today i went to see my doctor for a checkup after school and i was really confused because he seemed kind of hurt and annoyed and everytime i would ask him a question about something he would just give this little “hmph” like, “why are you asking me” and i didn’t get it until i got home and looked in the mirror and realized which one of my brand new doctor who shirts i was wearing

So today we were playing icebreaker games in one of my acting classes, just going around the room and saying our name and something we liked, and I was just kind of not listening until a girl a couple feet away from me goes, “…and I like John Green books” but I couldn’t talk to her because we were in class so I just kind of went

and then just whispered “I WILL BEFRIEND YOU"

  • Mom: You should tell me now if you do because I can't just snap my fingers and make food appear if you decide you really want something in a few days.
  • Me: Yeah, I know. It's the first exception to Gamp's Laws of Elemental Transfiguration.
  • Mom: What?
  • Me: You can't make food out of nothing. You can summon it if you know where it is, transform it, or increase the quantity if you've already got some, but yeah, you can't just snap your fingers and make food appear.
  • Mom: That's a Harry Potter thing, isn't it.

A boy in my class today: “Do you ever have those moments where you wonder, like, woah! What if all of this is just somebody’s dream?" 

Me: ”…All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.“ 

Charlotte: "Maya. Maya. Why did you have a tiny statue of Edgar Allan Poe in your purse. …Maya. Stop making that face. Where did that thing come from. Put that away." 

Me:
