Hey :) I'm Elif, 22 years old, from Germany and this is my blog. It used to contain:
HARRY POTTER, J.K. Rowling, fanfiction, DRAMIONE, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, TOM FELTON, EMMA WATSON, Feltson, NCIS, TIVA, Criminal Minds, ALEX DAY, Charlie McDonnell, Joe Jonas, Eminem, A Very Potter Musical/Sequel, Glee, Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, Lana Del Rey, vlogbrothers, Nerdfighteria, John Green, Oscar Wilde, Pride and Prejudice, other movies, books and authors I'm smitten with and a lot of other random stuff.
Now it's just a blog of a heartbroken girl who needs to get her shit together and move on...
Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center.

"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."
there’s something really interesting in this passage that I wanted to point out Trelawney assumes that Harry was born in midwinter because of his “dark hair” and “mean stature” and “tragic losses so young in life” Tom Riddle was born in midwinter, is describe in CoS as resembling Harry, and his mother died right after his birth Harry has a piece of Voldemort’s soul in him that’s why Trelawney made that assumption
TRELAWNY WAS ACTUALLY A GREAT SEER SHE JUST MESSED UP SOMETIMES AND ACTED A LITTLE GOOFY SO NO ONE TOOK HER SERIOUSLY
BECAUSE CLASSICAL ALLUSIONS
For those of you who don’t know your Greek mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of the King and Queen of Troy. Apollo tried to get in her pants by giving her the gift of prophecy and took nice guy douche-bagging to a godly level by cursing her when she turned him down.
The curse? That she would never be believed.
So all of Cassandra’s warnings to the people of Troy fell on deaf ears.
And in case you don’t remember, Trelawny mentions that her great-great-grandmother’s name was … you guessed it… “Cassandra”
