Tagged by the Queen in the West

I was tagged by the lovely aqueenrisesintheeast

In the first one I’m supposed to write five things I like about myself, then tag ten people. 

  1. My furnishing and home decorating skills
  2. (omg alex I like my hair air dried as well) I like how I’ve started to be nicer to myself and cut myself some slack
  3. (wink alex I know I’m one of those really good friends) Hufflepuff and how a damn fine one okay thank you
  4. My lower legs
  5. (I agree tho so I’m just going to say the same as you) my damn sweet ass taste in tv shows

The next tag is all about BOOKS

Rules: list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. don’t take more than a few minutes and don’t think too hard; they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list.

  1. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - JK Rowling
  2. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
  3. "Secrets in the Fire" - Henning Mankell 
  4. A Clash of Kings - George RR Martin
  5. Divergent - Veronica Roth
  6. The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini
  7. The Fault In Our Stars - John Green
  8. The Hobbit - JRR Tolkien 
  9. A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini
  10. Not Without My Daughter - Betty Mahmoody 
#i'm so upset #and i'm so done with people defending them #i don't care if 1% or 13% or 90% of its followers and politicians are just feeling sorry for themselves because people have to run from thei #their homelands to seek refuge in other countries #where they are clearly not welome #too many of its followers and politicians are scum #we're talking real fucking scary shit here #violence threats hatred #and the scary thing is that some people buy it when they're talking about saving people in their own countries #like #okay #so #you're telling me that you just because you want money #that you can help a lone child in a place where there's war #where there's no democracy #no legal security #places where citizens are being threatened stalked murdered thrown into jail without a trial assaulted tortured and frightened #you're telliing me that... it's best if these refugees are better off over there..? #do you think that they WANT to run away from their homes? #do you think they WANT to leave everything behind? #do you think they realize that despite doing all that #despite risking everything to come here to safety #to sweden where everything is great #a utopia #compared to where they've been #compared to the things no person should have to see ever #do you think they know that they're not welcome here? #that they might as well stay and risk dying on a slightly smaller scale #because they are certainly dead if they flee the country and are deported back #but you don't care

sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today, goddamit.

Okay, so the post is gaining notes and…

Friendly reminder that anyone born between 1985-1998 didn’t get their hogwarts letter because Voldemort’s ministry wiped out the record of muggleborns
