it’s not bad or selfish or wrong to desire attention and love when you are feeling ill and upset. sometimes, you need other people to keep you afloat. that’s okay. you are not a burden. being needy is not a bad thing. you deserve to be cared for. it’s okay to ask for help.
A reminder for anyone who is scared of being called “attention seeking” because of their illness.

this hit me like a load of bricks.
Dumbledore, notorious for giving second chances Dumbledore, let Sirius rot in Azkaban for twelve years.
He must have known Sirius well due to his time in the Order, he must have known what James meant to Sirius. Dumbledore was a member of the freaking Wizengamot yet he didn’t fight the Ministry’s horrifying trial-optional policy.
This is a man who took back Death Eater!Snape at his word, shielded him from prison, and employed him at a school for children.
But he didn’t have a use for Sirius, so he didn’t care about him.
I got 99 problems with Dumbledore and his treatment of Sirius Black accounts for like 64 of them.
To be honest, Albus Dumbledore is one of the most disturbing, terrifying characters I’ve ever found in a book, because he thought he was a good guy and so did everyone else and the books don’t really challenge it either (given that Harry forgives him for everything he did), but when you look between the lines he was profoundly, profoundly immoral and unethical.
A couple of months ago, I was talking about HP characters with a friend, and he said that Dumbledore was one of his least favorite characters of all time.
Naturally, this took me back a bit since he’s one of the heroes of the series, misguided as he was at times. Still, I was curious and asked my friend why he hated him. His answer still strikes a chord with me.
"There is never, ever a reason to leave a child in an abusive home. Never."
Links to Help You Start Coding by azurethemes/salazhar
In honor of opening my theme blog, I thought I’d make this post on learning how to code since many people ask where/how I started coding. This is not a tutorial on how to code a theme, but a list of resources on how to start learning HTML and CSS.
These websites are the one I used to learn and understand more about HTML and CSS.
- Code Academy
w3Schools is what I like to call my online glossary. It has literally everything you need to know.
MAKING TUMBLR THEMES
There are many great tutorials here on tumblr on creating your own theme. Here are a few:
Tumblr has also provided us with a document on creating custom themes and I suggest going through it.
USING BASE CODES
If you wanna start coding themes, but you don’t know where to start, I suggest using a base code.
I have a masterpost of base codes here, but you will want to use base codes that come with instructions like these two [ one | two ] so it’s easier for you to customize and understand the theme.
Again, this is just a list of resources to help you begin coding your own tumblr themes. I will release another resources list with more external links that provides you with tutorials to make your themes even better. This one is just to help you start out.
Please like/reblog this if you found it useful.
If you have anymore questions on coding, feel free to ask me!

I was talking to someone recently about how google keeps track of your searches and
Just a reminder that pranking underclassmen just because you’re a senior is not okay. Just because seniors did it to you when you were a freshman doesn’t mean you should propagate the hatred. You may think this tradition of pranking is funny but I saw girls sobbing in the bathroom our freshman year. Please don’t. As seniors we should be helping freshman, not purposefully getting them lost or making their first year in high school a living hell.We are not better than freshman, merely older than them.
HEY WRITER FRIENDS
there’s this amazing site called realtimeboardwhich is like a whiteboard where you can plan and draw webs and family trees and timelines and all that sort of stuff. you can also insert videos, documents, photos, and lots of other things. you can put notes and post-its and, best of all, you can invite other people to be on the board with you and edit together!!
this is really really awesome and a great tool for novel planning, so if you’re doing nanowrimo…. this could be good for you!!
This is a great website and helped me to lay out so many things. Use it. It’s beautiful.
