williedevine84 Guess who went on the Harry Potter studio tour today…?!
Jenna. 18. I like sugar, tea, and strawberries. Also, I'm actually a mermaid. I often use tags to go on rants that aren't related to the posts. (But, really, if you want me to tag anything, just tell me.) I write fanfiction sometimes, but I rarely finish it. This is a multifandom blog (including: One Direction, Dalton, Harry Potter Next Generation, Les Miserables, Merlin, Teen Wolf, Glee, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and Disney).
Today is the national mourning day for the Dutch victims of MH17. The first 50 bodies will arrive in the Netherlands this afternoon around 4pm. The minute before the plane with the victim’s bodies lands the entire country will have a minute of silence. In Amsterdam there will be a silent procession, where the participators are asked to wear white. There will be no commercials and appropriate broadcasts on radio and television.
We lost 193 Dutch citizens this past Thursday. Many families have been ripped apart. Everybody in the Netherlands, directly or indirectly, seems to have known someone on this plane. We are a small country. We are not used to this kind of terror, this generation of Dutchmen is not used to this kind of terror. I have no idea what this brings for the future, but just for today is does not matter yet. Today we remember. Today we think about all those lives lost on that plane. About all those families and friends who lost their loved ones in a useless plain crash.
Think about those people today. And think about the people you love who are still there. Appreciate them, be aware.
Tim and Regis; I will think about you most today. My old colleague and the brother of my friend. It is just not fair. Slaap zacht, mannen.
So you didn’t like it?
Re-posting this awful thing because of reasons
as thanks for hitting 4k followers, i’m giving away five sets of sampler packs of my PJO tea blends! each sampler contains enough loose-leaf tea for about three cups, and each set will contain six packs — one of each of the currently available blends.

don’t have a strainer to brew loose-leaf with? no problem! one winner will also receive a brand new stainless steel tea ball!
- you don’t need to be following me (but i thoroughly appreciate everyone who does)
- if you are following me and you win, though, i’ll doodle something for you on the back on the labels!
- both reblogs and likes count, so you can have two entries total
- if you reblog this more than once though, i’m disqualifying you. spamming your followers with giveaway shit is super obnoxious.
- no giveaway blogs either!
- winner will be chosen by random number generator!
- keep your ask box open, if a winner doesn’t respond within 48 hours then i’ll pick someone else!
- the first winner i pick will be offered the tea strainer ball, and if they don’t want it/already have one/whatever, i’ll offer it to the next winner until someone claims it (so please, future winners, only accept it if you really don’t have a way to make tea yourself just so people who aren’t already equipped have a chance at it)!
- GIVEAWAY ENDS ON AUGUST 15TH, 2014!
and for anyone who doesn’t win or just doesn’t want to deal with a giveaway, all these blends are available for purchase right over here on adagio!
