1. Who is your
favourite Holland, that isn’t Tom?
Dom!! Because he’s so funny and nice and I love his books and the small clips
of his stand up on YouTube, He’s also replied to me a bunch on twitter soo
that’s nice (Also Paddy because he’s so cute).
2. Has Tom made a
life changing difference in your life?
I don’t know that he’s made a Life changing difference in my life but he has
made me want to be a better person, I have been actively donating to more
charities and I often am more aware of what is happening in the world and how
it if affecting others.
3. How and when did
you discover Tom?
Look I must be honest, I first saw Tom in Civil War. I knew he was in ‘In the
Heart of The Sea.’ But I just never got around to seeing it but I also think I
saw ‘The Impossible.’ At school once sooo…
4. If you could cast
Tom in anything, ranging from existing movies to books, what would you choose?
I would cast him in a Live Action version of Disney’s Atlantis as Milo Thatch!
I just think Tom would be such a great fit for that character and also, I love
5. What you love
about Tom most?
I Love who Tom is as a person, He just cares so much. He’s not like other
Air-headed actors who are in it for the fame and the money. He also cares so
much about everything and especially his family, like he includes them in
everything he does and it just shows that he is such a good person and he is
not like most other young actors who are just there for the ride. He wants to
make a difference and he honestly is… uhh I mean he has a great smile and Abs!
(pfft I don’t feel strongly about this at all.)

that’s your favourite character portrayed?

had. Also, I haven’t seen a lot of his other movies.

to support it in any way that I can but hopefully next time the Australian
dollar is worth more in pounds :P
12. If you would ever
meet, what would you like to tell/ask him?
I would tell him that he is an inspiration to millions and that he is doing a
great job and that if more people could be like him the world would be a much

because I screwed that up.

Spidey was so accurate and funny and there was finally a marvel villain that
didn’t die or have something happen. Plus guy in the chair!!

19. What is your
favourite Tom Holland quote?
Uhhh I don’t have one?
This was soincredibly fun to make! It’s just a simple homage to one of my favourite shows, as well as a few of my favourite people! I’d definitely reccommend you check out the full video on youtube, and I’d love to hear what you think in the replies! I’ll be uploading all the poses I created for this very soon!
The Resistance, or protests against Trump beginning since November 8th of 2016, fights for peace and justice for all people. However, Pepsi recently decided that they want to fight for peace and justice for all people…while selling cans of their soda for loads of money.
In the recent 2-minute commercial, Kendall Jenner is modeling in front of photographers while a demonstration is taking place outside the modeling studio. The commercial features small clips of couples kissing, a hijabi Muslim taking pictures, among Trump opposers protesting in the streets. Later, Kendall removes herself from the studio and joins in on the demonstration by giving one police officer a Pepsi; as a result of her valiant act, the Resistance cheers, and multiple people begin drinking Pepsi.
This is problematic in so many ways, so let’s break it down:
1. Kendall Jenner is obtaining fame through a political commercial, yet she has never been political before this.
Besides mentioning her approval and support for then-candidate Hillary Clinton, Kendall has absolutely done no protesting of Trump and his radical policies. In an Instagram post, Jenner announced her support of Clinton, captioning one of her photos as “Shirt by @themarcjacobs. History by @hillaryclinton.” Despite being a female member of one of the most outspoken families in the country, Kendall Jenner has failed to attend little to any protests. But some protests weren’t in her area, so we’ll just let that slide… wrong. Kendall Jenner failed to attend the Women’s March, a series of protests held around the entire globe, even in remote places with small populations.
2. Pepsi is appropriating the Resistance for money.
Pepsi also, as a company, has never taken a stance on politics. Similar to Kendall’s issue, Pepsi is using their platform not to provoke change, but to make money off of the suffering of others.
3. Kendall Jenner wasn’t arrested, but Ieshia Evans was.
In 2016, Ieshia Evans was arrested by the police for protesting the death of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge. The photo sparked controversy, but a similar set-up occurred in this Pepsi video. Kendall came face to face with the police, but instead of receiving handcuffs, she gave them a Pepsi and receive cheers and applause. The Huffington Post says:
The image of Jenner approaching the police line is all too similar to the widely shared photo of Black Lives Matter protester Ieshia Evans in Baton Rogue in 2016, as Elle notes. Unlike Jenner, however, Evans was arrested. If only she had a Pepsi in hand.
This is just one of the countless examples of when celebrities use their fame to exploit national crises and obtain money. Like Gigi Hadid embracing her Palestinian side, the rest of Taylor Swift’s white girl squad is appropriating the struggles of millions of Americans.
Since we’re not the beloved first lady or the most skilled home entertainer of our generation, we’ll just have to settle for a video of the two snacking and making small talk. The clip comes from an upcoming Food Network special called Barefoot in Washington, which includes an invitation to an Obama/Barefoot Contessa dinner party.
The Domestic Garden Witch: Pocket-Sized Green Thumb
So maybe you’re a college witch with limited space and money, limited to the one window in your dorm. Or, maybe you’re a witch without extensive backyard space who wants to start up a magical garden. Perhaps you’re a kitchen witch who wants the freshest herbs right at her fingertips.
For many witches, having a garden seems to be a bit of a no-brainer. After all, plants and magic go hand-in-hand. Plus, when thinking of a witch, it’s hard not to think of a cottage in the woods with a little vegetable garden out front. Unfortunately for the majority of us, our cottage in the woods is a tiny flat, and our garden out front is a windowsill with limited space.
This is when it comes time to embrace your craftiness and bring your garden indoors! Not only does it place your garden in a convenient location, it also allows you to freshen the air, recycle what would otherwise harm the earth, and embrace your witchy green thumb!
An Excuse to Have More Wine!
Okay, so this is a cute and somewhat family oriented garden. It breaks away from the more meditation-oriented garden from last week, and strays away from the initial intensity of terrariums. But it sticks to the simplicity and ease of care that you would have with any succulents!
With midterms and various other tests plaguing our college witches, there’s sure to be plenty of wine being consumed in order to ease that tension. (Or, if you’re like me, your excuse for having a lot of wine is the fact that you “cook” with it.) Regardless, corks are often seen as nothing more than a tedious obstacle blocking your way to the delicious and happy-inducing fermented grape juice inside the bottle. Well, to most folks, anyway… I’ll leave the significance of corks in wine bottling to one of my kitchen witchery posts. So when all is said and done, many corks end up just being thrown away by the end of the night.
Succulents come in a range of shapes, colors, and sizes, from the massive saguaro to the tiny rock plants. But what makes them so easy to care for is the fact that often they can easily root from clippings and they require very little water in order to survive.
Corks, meanwhile, are great at maintaining low levels of moisture for extended periods of time, providing an ideal potting source for succulents. As such, it only makes sense to bring a bit of green into the home by using the corks as a pot!
You Know the Drill…
All you need (aside from the wine) is a cork, a drill with two bits (a quarter inch bit and a smaller bit for making a leading hole), potting soil, a little bit of aquarium gravel, and some clippings from small succulents.
Using the smaller bit, drill a leading hole into the cork, being careful to avoid drilling all the way through it. Then, use the larger bit to widen the hole so as to turn your cork into a miniature pot. Add a little bit of potting soil, followed by your clipping. Add a little more soil and gently tamp it down to secure the clipping into place, and decorate with a little bit of aquarium gravel. It’s as simple as that!
A common use for these plants is to glue a magnet to the back, allowing the succulents to serve as living refrigerator magnets. For me, I see these adorable little succulents being great gifts or even cute decorations for the small dorm room.
As I’ve mentioned, not much care is needed beyond watering every ten days or so. You can use a dropper to administer the water, or carefully use a small spoon to apply water.
How Can I Witch This?
Succulents vary greatly in their magickal uses. Jade plants are exceptional for inviting wealth into the home, whereas agave is great for attracting sweet and positive energies. Coordinate your plants with what your intent is. The cork itself can be decorated with runes, sigils, symbols, et cetera, or can even be studded with crystals!
If you’re going for the magnet idea, you can take a green spin on the concept of crystal grids, and instead create a succulent grid right there on your refrigerator, using the intent from the plants to attract the energies you want much in the same way as you would arrange crystals!
As mentioned before, these little plants make for great gifts, and therefore can be used as spells for others, as well. Aloe for healing, or jade for prosperity, et cetera.
If you’re trying to practice discreetly, these plants are a great way to do so!
And lastly, you can place crystals in the bottom of the hole you’ve drilled to correspond to the intent of the plant or to encourage health for the plant. This is a great way to practice a little bit of garden witchery in a very small setting!
Play around and get creative with the different ways that you can work with these little succulents to brighten your dorm or window!
