The Fault In Our Stars, Farenheit 451, To Kill A Mockingbird and Pride and Prejudice are probably my top four right now. Harry Potter pretty much defined my childhood though.
It started off very well, really liked the beginning and even the weird NHS thing was sweet. The sight of J.K. Rowling always reduces the inner Harry Potter fan-girl within me to tears, so that was nice. But then for a little while it descended into what I would politely call lunacy. Definitely not what I would call impressive. But hey ho, what do I know. Curious to know what people from all around the world thought of it. (Heard that a Tory MP tweeted that it was ‘multicultural crap’ - but this is the guy who was sacked for attending a Nazi-themed stag party.)
But then the parade of athletes was great, really loved watching that. I don’t know why but something about the unity and together-ness (not a word, but it should be) made me feel really emotional and just, happy, inside. And they all looked so happy. Well, who wouldn’t be, parading to ‘Stayin’ Alive’?
I was taken aback to hear everything first said in French then repeated in English! I googled it though and found that people had already started asking on Wiki and Yahoo answers; apparently the founder of the modern Olympic Games was French, and French and English are recognised as the official languages of the Olympics? Interesting.
So yeah. Let the
Triwizard Tournament Olympic Games begin! (The beginning bit of the ceremony was very Harry Potter-esque wasn’t it? Was it just me who thought that they’d be getting the Goblet of Fire out any second?!)
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Theorem
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Calculus
Harry potter and the Prisoner of Algebra
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Analysis
Harry Potter and the Order of Operations
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Statistician
Harry Potter and the Deathly Algorithms
I dreamt that I went to see the final Harry Potter film and they changed the ending so that what actually happened at the end was that Harry found a time-turner and went back in time until when Voldemort was a teen and hadn’t made any Horcruxes and destroyed him… And I remember walking out of the cinema SO ANGRY, hahaha. Why am I so weird?
Anyway, about to go to a market with Elvire and later tonight we’re going to the cinema, wooooooooooo. I am so happyyyy
I’ve been trying to decide for a while now what my blog actually is. And I think I’ve decided that it is what my mind would look like if you could see it. I love visual aesthetics, both natural and artistic. I love literature, and the power of words, when put together in the right way, to inspire and motivate, or capture emotions, moments, feelings. I love the beauty of language in general, whether it be English, French or Arabic. I love wit and humour, from dry and cynical, to downright silly and immature. I’m always thinking about the state of our world at the moment, and although it saddens me how much cruelty there is, I love the fact that there are good people. Lots of good people. And I do believe that good will prevail over evil, however long it takes. I love talking to people, I love my friends, I love my family. I love beautiful music. I love good films. I love House MD and Doctor Who and Harry Potter and old Disney films. I love expressing myself. I just love writing. Excitement, happiness, fear, sadness, worry, whatever’s on my mind… it doesn’t matter. I love clearing up and articulating my thoughts. It let’s me think so much more clearly. :)
…to the point where I even think about their reactions to certain situations in my own life. Don’t think that’s healthy. Sigh.
Oh my God!!! He’s so so cute in both!
