Sweet on the Outside

So recently, like the rest of the world, I have been experiencing a heat wave that makes life very uncomfortable. And, I currently have no air conditioning--which means that my room? About 80 degrees (Fahrenheit) and higher on hot days with little to no wind. With this being the case, especially without a good cooling down at night (making it really hard to get a good night's sleep, combined with the sounds of the outside world coming through the window that must be constantly open in order to get a nice breeze), it seems no surprise that there are adverse effects on the people. I am no exception. I have recently discovered that being constantly overheated makes me very irritable, and while I can often be irritable during normal, non-heat wave times, I usually have the good sense to keep what's in my head from coming out of my mouth without a thought.

The Finer Points of Friendship

Have you ever heard of Neville Longbottom? Luna Lovegood? Seamus Finnigan?

I'm Not Sorry

Let's pose a hypothetical, now. Imagine you're sitting with a friend who has had a particularly bad day (or week, or month, or...well, you understand) and you have been listening to them as they detail in length how absolutely awful their (previous time period here) has been. At the end of everything, perhaps you have advice for them, perhaps nothing but someone to gripe to, but whatever you have, you tell them, "I'm sorry about (insert something here)." And they reply, "It's okay, it's not your fault."

Let's Talk Disney

So if you know me, you know this one thing. I am a fan, down to the core, of the monolith that is Disney Animation. I specify, of course, because while I love a good Disney film such as Pirates of the Caribbean (Jonny Depp!) or some other along those live-action lines, I will always continue to return to Disney Animation.
