It Does Not Say RSVP on The Statue of Liberty – “The Sorting Hat” (vulnerability)

Vulnerability is shitty. It is the absolute worst thing (for me). It's hard and it hurts because for the people that you keep in your life, you lose others and it stings. As someone who used to just trust everyone right away and wanted to spill even my most vulnerable secrets and stories, I've been … Continue reading It Does Not Say RSVP on The Statue of Liberty – “The Sorting Hat” (vulnerability)

Come Expectant – “The Journey from Platform Nine and Three-Quarters” (expectations)

I'm pretty sure some of the best and worst things happen when you least expect them. I mean, isn't that what people preach to single people all the time? "They'll show up when you least expect it!"

Many Days I Wish I Was a Hermit – “The Vanishing Glass” (loneliness)

Many days I look at Obi-Wan Kenobi's life after Anakin turned into Darth Vader and I honestly think "Goals". I like solitude. I like being alone. I really really like doing my own thing.

Is Dumbledore the best or worst boss ever? – “The Boy Who Lived”(commitment)
