Horseradish

“Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake someone else up, so that they can feel this way, too.” —Lemony Snicket

J.K. Rowling

It all ends in 5 days and I just realized how unprepared I am for Harry Potter to end. I swear to god I am not ready for this yet. I can't say that I'm really happy or unhappy about the last movie because of this mixed emotions right now. I can't wait to watch Happy Potter and The Deathly Hallow Part 2 but at the same time I don't want it to end, ever. Since the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone back in 2001, I watched every single Harry Potter film without fail and I started reading all of the books a few years ago. I practically grew up watching Harry Potter. It's my childhood and it's more than just a movie to me.

If someone asked me if I am sad that the adventure of Harry Potter is over, of course I'm sad! That's not even a question for me, or to the devoted and loyal harry potter fans. Even the last premier last night in London just caused me to unleash tons of emotion. I'm sure those who loves Harry Potter totally knows what I'm talking about. It's kind of hard to process the movie series is coming to an end, and knowing that I have nothing to look forward to anymore starting from next year. Sometimes I wish a big guy with a giant beard would come to my house and tell me I was going to a wizard school or probably an owl flying into my window with my Hogwarts acceptance letter, lol. But I doubt that would ever happen.

Ok.. positive thoughts now. The series may be over, but Harry Potter will never end. It will live on in all the hearts of all the fans and always be remembered. The Harry Potter series is a legend, and the legacy will live on forever. This story moved us all and thought us many things and I thank you J.K.Rowling for this one amazing journey. A decade ago, you introduced me to the world of literature. The world of magic. I grew up reading and watching Harry Potter. So thank you for this gift that you have shared with the world and also to the cast and crew for making the wonderful movies.

This final movie will definitely be bittersweet.
I will miss it and always love HP.

Take The Good With The Bad


I believe that everything happens for a reason. No matter how bad the situation is, there's definitely a reason for it. Even though life can be a bitch sometimes and has its ups and downs like a roller coaster or other times it feels like a merry-go-round, going around and around but seemingly getting no where, just remember that this is just how it is. This is life and you just have to deal with it.

Some people think that they're going through a really rough time and they're the only one who's going through it when the truth is, you ain't the only one. Open your big wide eyes and look around, everyone on this planet is going through 'something'. Everyone has their own problems, and some of them might actually have the same problem that you're going through right now. It's just that the only difference is how you handle it. Some people try to handle things by searching for a solution, some people have faith and hope for better things to come, some people just keeps complaining but never do anything about it, some people is just too ego to make things work, and others just simply gives up and never bother to fix it. I'm not saying that I'm an expert on handling my problems, oh never. To be honest, I screw things up quite a lot myself actually. But what I've learned is that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle things.

Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. Make sure that you are a good person and a good friend. Appreciate everything around you because you never know what you have until you lose it, and once you lose it, you can never get it back. If you have something to say, just say it. Be honest and straight forward. When people give you advices for your own good, take it in and do something about it. Treat people like the way you want people to treat you. What is meant to be will end up good and what is not won’t. Relationships are worth fighting for, but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At time, people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you must move on and realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you. Hopefully, people realize great things when they come around and don’t lose something real. Always fight, until you can’t anymore, and then be fought for.

Marilyn Monroe once said that people change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

So the next time you're having doubts about your life, or complain about how shitty your life is. Just stop. There are people out there who is dealing with stuff that is much more worse and painful than what you are dealing with right now. They just don't show it to the whole world. Being too dramatic about something small can cause something huge, something worse. Seeking sympathy from everyone isn't going to solve anything. Running away, hiding or killing yourself isn't going to do you any good. You'll just end up more miserable.

Fight for what is worth it, handle things the mature way and have faith a little.
