I Love ‘Harry Potter,’ But It’s Time to Let It End


Six years after its final book and two after its final movie, the Harry Potter series has started showing some not-entirely-unexpected signs of life in 2013. Back in September, we learned that J.K. Rowling will write Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Themthe first in a series of films set in Harry‘s canonical universe. And yesterday, news broke that a Potter prequel is set to hit London’s West End in 2015, co-produced by Rowling herself. But as one of the many superfans expected to hit the (magical, weather-replicating) ceiling at the idea of an expanded Potterverse, I’m concerned Harry Potter might be best just the way it is: iconic, massively popular, and definitely, conclusively over.

23 Things To Do Instead Of Getting Engaged Before You’re 23

Wander Onwards


As 2013 wraps up, I’ve been noticing more and more people getting engaged and/or married under the age of 23.

As we come to a close

Well once again our year is coming to a close. Everyone’s worried about their New Years Resolutions and what not. This year I’m going to start something new. I’m not going to plan anything, I’m just going to make myself one promise and that is to try to become a better person not by saving money, or going to the gym, or eating more “clean” (whatever your definition of it is) I’m just going to learn from my daily situations at hand by writing and expressing myself. I know that’s probably going to be a tough one because I’m a lazy reader, but I’m sure it won’t be nothing I can’t handle.

Anyway, hope everyone is having a Happy Holidays!

Meals for the Broke


“So long as you have food in your mouth, you have solved all questions for the time being” -Franz Kafka

Today me and my boyfriend were asked to make dinner. Considering the fact that we live with his mom who is a grandmother to a lot of mouths, we basically had to make dinner for 20 people in a Foster Care. Our house didn’t have much to cook considering the fact that we are going grocery shopping again tomorrow I manage to whip something up our of nothing! So here’s the recipe!

•One pound of Chicken breast
•Half a Package of chicken broth
•4 Tablespoons of flour (for thickness)
