as i type this, i am currently watching the first chronicles of narnia mov ie, the wardrobe. when i tell you this lion the witch & the film franchise is the best film franchise of all tim e OKAY. let me play it out for youI AM NOT EXAGGERATING : there are beautiful children (who tur n into attractiv adventure, mysticism, magic, bea e teens/adults), utiful scenery, a lovely soundtrack, and THI NLY -VE ILE D CHRISTIAN IMAGERY. if you’re not really into the whole christian scene (which is a-okay), these films are still for you because the christian imager y, in this case, adds to the drama and beauty of the sto ry but doesn’t hit you over the head with rel igi on. it’ subtle comparison, but man, is s not a particularly it a beautiful story. there are three movies so far: the first is the lion, the witch and theout war dro cast as tiny, adorable, morallbe which features the y complex children. the second two show (princ e cas pia n treader) them grow up and look & voyage of the dawn REA CUTE which only ADDS to the beauty of the stories.LLY it’s like an added bonus!!! and as an added bonus the third features homoerotic tension! it’s bas ically the coolest film franchise ever. the books are also GREAT, and there are seven of them, so you should definitel y check them out!!!!!

yo real talk can i confess something to you guys??? i learned how to ride a bike really late. as in, yesterday. yesterday being 12 days before my 20th birthday. i know. my mom had to take me out on my bike in a parking lot and hold onto the back of it because i was THAT SCARED of riding a bike (I AM STILL VERY SCARED OF RIDING A BIKE). but i still felt kinda cool riding my (vintage!) bike even though i am a grown adult (ha) learning to ride one. THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS don’t feel dumb for learning things late or not being able to do things. just ask someone to help you and you will learn another skill, which is never a bad thing! and anyone who makes you feel sad for not knowing how to do something is a loser. honestly i feel excited (BUT ALSO SCARED) to ride a bike and i hope y’all learn something cool this month or this week or even today! learning things is fun and we all learn things every day so don’t feel bad if you don’t know stuff. :) if u live in delaware (like i do) or in the surrounding area you should totally check out the newark bike project, which is a diy bike repair and sales joint that also hosts open mic nights and local artists and everyone there is super cool!! i got my bike there for $35 and it’s vintage and pretty and orange. support local artists and volunteers!!!
crafts i have tried that i was not good at (but have enjoyed anyway) whittling crocheting knitting painting knot-tying doing anything good with my hair painting nails making candles making perfume making birdhouses mosaics that one thing where you make a butterfly habitat terrariums/keeping plants alive in general calligraphy trying to get really good at makeup like those girls on youtube sewing that thing where you scratch off the black stuff to reveal shiny stuff pottery
be anything you wa nna be when yo u grow up
