She is the author of a book on Yemeni female pioneers, and frequently encouraged her fellow countrywomen to engage with politics and run for office.

Birth Order and Hogwarts Houses: Middle Born

Those who were born in the middle are described as: 

  • Sociable
  • Compromising
  • Mediator
  • Independent
  • Peacemaker
  • Makes friends easily
  • Easy to get along with
  • Willing to work things out
  • Good negotiator
  • Easy-going
  • Generous
  • Flexible
  • Loyal

My Prediction:

When I saw the description for a middle born child, one house automatically came to mind: Hufflepuff.

Middle Born Percentages:

  • 23 Total
  • Gryffindor: 3 (13.04%)
  • Slytherin: 3 (13.04%)
  • Ravenclaw: 2 (8.69%)
  • Hufflepuff: 15 (65.21%)


My original prediction once again proved to be true. This time over 60% of those who were middle born ended up belong in Hufflepuff. Once again, we can look to The Sorting Hat for an explanation: 

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil

Dima and Lama Hattab (b. 1980) are twin sisters from Jordan who became the first women from the Middle East to participate in the famous race Marathon des Sables, a six-day ultramarathon in the Sahara Desert. They also contributed greatly to promoting female participation in high-performance sports.

They first participated in the 1999 Dead Sea ultramarathon, where they finished 3rd and 4th. In 2002 they organised the first Jabal Ishrin charity race in Jordan, going through the Wade Rum desert valley, with all proceeds going towards charitable causes.

Let me tell you about a woman named Eliza.

Okay so I know we’re all obsessed with Hamilton, and rightly so. Mr. Lin-Manuel Miranda has done a superlative job of integrating different cultures into the narration of one lesser known founding father, Alexander Hamilton. This is perfect for that man’s story, since Alexander was himself a poor immigrant and not apart of the wealthy, white culture that we are often told existed solely in the early days of the United States.

But I present to you that the greatest character in Hamilton is not Mr. Hamilton himself, but Mrs. Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, his wife. Please look at the facts.

Growing up Eliza was the middle child, the second born. Her dazzling older sister, Angelica, was described as the oldest and the wittiest. Angelica is the one who sets crowds after her. She is the one who puts herself in the spotlight. But Eliza? Eliza is kind and trusting, she is absolutely selfless and would never do something to someone else if she thought it would hurt them. It’s stated clearly that if Angelica had expressed interest in Alexander then Eliza would have given him to her and said she was fine (she’d be lying).

But Angelica is cool, so Eliza marries Alexander, and she’s truly happy. When she saw him she wanted it known that “this one” was hers. This was the first time she wanted something with all her heart, wanting it enough to be willing to show others how much she wanted it. And she got it. Eliza’s life is suddenly wonderful! She’s so happy to have Hamilton, her life is at an all time high.

But Alexander is always away, occupied with the war. Eliza becomes pregnant but doesn’t want to bother Alexander, knowing what he does is important. So what does she do? She writes his commander, George Washington. This girl waits for a whole month before her beloved husband finally comes back, and all that time she was sitting on the news of their coming son. Again we see her selflessness.

Then, years pass. Alexander writes like he’s running out of time and he’s always away, so Eliza hardly sees him. She raises their son for the most part alone, but she knew what she was doing. She taught him how to be kind, caring, and she imparted her respect of Alexander on to Phillip. This is truly beautiful, a wife that believes so much in her husband that her son can see his father’s glory through her.

And then the tragedy. Alexander just can’t say no to the temptation that arises in Mrs. Reynolds. Eliza’s world is broken, shattered to pieces. The one man she ever loved. The one man she truly trusted. Not only that, but the only gift that was wholly hers and not Angelica’s. That man had not been taken from her, he had left. Eliza could have spoken out and saved him or destroyed him, but what does she do? She burns the letters, she doesn’t speak to the press, she is silent. Eliza lets Hamilton ruin his life, and he we see that selflessness yet again. She won’t help him, he’s gotten himself into this situation, but she’s not going to make it any worse.

And then, a while later, when their son dies in an incident that could be blamed on Alexander, she forgives him and they are a couple once more.

And one last moment, and this is the most beautiful. Years later Alexander dies to Mr. Burr’s shot, Eliza is truly alone. Her son is dead, her husband is dead (technically her daughter is alive but she’s barely even in the show). What does Eliza do? She publishes his letters, she raises money for the Washington monument, she talks to all the soldiers who fought with her husband, and even more. This woman single-handedly does everything she can, but not for her own glory. She wants to make sure that with the time she has she’ll convince the world to tell the story of Alexander Hamilton. She wants to make sure his legacy lives on.

This man has cheated on her, practically abandoned her, and broken her heart, but she is so selfless. She doesn’t hold grudges, she isn’t bitter. This woman never thinks of herself, she’s always living for other people. Her children, her husband, and the hundreds of kids she helps raise in that first public orphanage in New York City.

Alexander Hamilton is great, I’m glad we remember him now and he’s not just consigned to the 10 dollar bill with no one knowing who he was. But I don’t want to be Alexander Hamilton. I don’t want to be George Washington. I don’t want to be Angelica or Lafayette, or Jefferson, or anyone else.

With all that is in me, I hope I can be half the person that Eliza Schuyler Hamilton was. She is my inspiration. She is my hero.

Manal al-Sharif (b. 1979) is the woman responsible for the campaign aimed at giving women the right to drive in Saudi Arabia. To initiate this movement, she filmed herself driving in the country, where it is illegal for women to do so; she was detained and released on bail on the condition of ceasing activity and not talking to media. Still, she remained an active voice pushing for women’s rights in the Middle East.

She is still campaigning heavily on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook for the loosening of Saudi Arabia’s strict legislation, despite the risk associated with these activities. She was awarded the Vaclav Havel Prize for Creative Dissent by the Oslo Freedom Forum in 2012.

It was no secret in all of Westeros that the Reach was rich, maybe even more so than Casterly Rock. So, of course, it was no secret when your parents threw a big bash for your sixteenth name day. Lords, Ladies, and Knights from all over the reach came to participate in the Tourney, the feasts, and the other festivities that were held on the request of your Grandmother, Olenna Redwyne.

You were the oldest Tyrell daughter and the middle child born to Lord Mace Tyrell and Lady Alerie Hightower. Lords and Heirs of Lords had traveled from all over the Seven Kingdoms to try and win your favor and your hand. It both amused and annoyed you. Just because you were of age didn’t mean you suddenly needed to be married off. You especially didn’t want to be married off to some stuffy Lord who would use you to produce heirs and get money from your parents.

Iwaizumi Hajime/IwaOi/Oikawa Tooru headcanons Part 2 (because I cannot write headcanons of one without the other) :

General stuff and IwaOi in (grade school and) middle school:

  • Iwaizumi is born a strong boy. He may look small and lanky (before he starts building muscle in the later half of middle school), but he could lift heavy things easily (including a crying and hurting Oikawa on his back 20-minute walk back home.)
  • Iwaizumi claims willpower can bring real strength.
  • Iwaizumi loves dogs. Whenever he saw one on the street, he would either flash them a big smile or approach them to pat them.
  • Iwaizumi is an animal whisperer in general.
  • Iwaizumi doesn’t get sick often, but whenever he does, it’s serious. He would burn up with high fever, several times, before he fully recovers. (Oikawa freaked out the first time (when they were four) and wouldn’t leave Iwaizumi’s room because he can’t leave or Hajime-chan might die when nobody’s watching. It’s one memory both mothers like to talk about when Iwaizumi and Oikawa are older. Oikawa refuses to acknowledge he’s ever been so naïve and stupid.)
  • Iwaizumi asks Oikawa to stop calling him Hajime-chan in their third grade in grade school (Oikawa refused but at least dropped the ‘chan’ under Iwaizumi’s persistence. Iwaizumi started calling Oikawa by his last name around the same time and Oikawa wasn’t a bit happy about it. He complained but Iwaizumi was persistent.)
  • (Iwaizumi’s and Oikawa’s stubbornness could rival their competitiveness. Though if there’s any exception, it’s for each other (and their family.))
  • Iwaizumi brings it up several times and asks Oikawa to use his last name in the following years but Oikawa refuses (again and again).
  • Oikawa is persistent of calling Iwaizumi ‘Hajime’ because he feels special to be the only one still allowed (or more like being tolerated) to use it to address Iwaizumi. And since Oikawa is still bad at making friends, it’s one important proof that he’s special to Iwaizumi who has way too many friends other than him. (Iwaizumi may have a lot of friends (and many, especially boys, want to be friends with him), he likes to keep only a few close ones. Before Iwaizumi and Oikawa befriend Hanamaki and Matsukawa in high school, Oikawa is actually the only one Iwaizumi considers as his close friend.)
  • Oikawa comes up with Iwa-chan in their fifth grade and declares that it’s either ‘Hajime’ or ‘Iwa-chan’ (because they are best friends and best friends get best friend privilege.) Iwaizumi agrees to ‘Iwa-chan’, albeit reluctantly.
  • Iwaizumi might dislike the nickname (he’s neutral about it later), but would politely ask anyone other than Oikawa to not use it to address him. (Because, well, Oikawa insists best friends get best friend privilege. Iwaizumi does let Hanamaki and Matsukawa use ‘Iwa-chan’ when they are teasing or pissing off Oikawa.)
  • (Oikawa finds out about this and feels more than happy with it. He shows his gratitude by pretending not knowing.)
