Beauty and the Beast, The Frog Prince. :)

Beauty and the Beast - what makes a person beautiful in your eyes?

A heart for Jesus. A love for people. Externals that I tend to notice first - eyes and smile, sometimes hair if it’s striking. 

The Frog Prince - what do you find disgusting?

Hypocrisy or a lack of integrity, the result when people don’t clean up after their dogs or drop rubbish in public places, and olives. The only good thing about olives is not eating them. Oh, and people who chew with their mouths open, pick on scabs in public, chew fingernails or cuticles, or don’t shower often enough. Using something sharp like a knife to pick one’s teeth, or digging in one’s ear with keys instead of a Q-tip. (You asked - sorry if that’s too graphic!)

"As I Walked Out One Evening" by W.H. Auden // read by Tom Hiddleston

things that are rather wonderful: tights-and-boots weather, blueberry pie filling for breakfast, making food for my friends and watching them enjoy it, The Civil Wars’ harmonies, seeing an acorn for the first time in my life, smiles, and scuffing my feet through leaves in the street. also the witchy autumn light hanging over the river valley as I walked over the bridge the other evening. 

got back from university choir lake retreat (5 rehearsals in 2 days and lots of bonding with new choir bbs) yesterday and realised every moment of my time this entire week is committed to something. horrific French exam this morning, work, two papers and two quizzes due soon, Antony and Cleopatra to finish reading and watching, stepping up on French practice time, promised to bring baking to two different events on Thursday, lots of other reading, discussion and research for pro-life club to help prepare before Thursday, food kitchen serving trip Wednesday morning very early, swing dance practice Friday afternoon, work Saturday morning, little sister visiting Saturday and Sunday, going swing dancing Saturday night with sister + friends, church Sunday morning, and concert with little sister Sunday afternoon.

i may possibly be crazy. 


i like to think that hogwarts has a really strong wi-fi signal, but like the stair cases, it keeps moving around. just muggleborns, chillin on their laptops all suddenly stand up together, dash madly to a different corner of the school, and sit down wordlessly like some kind of mind hive flock of pigeons while the purebloods are just so confused
