How 2 Slytherin, Part I

slytherin

Hello and welcome to Mari’s Strong Opinions About Slytherin House: A Saga. Our first step towards understanding of what is arguably the most misunderstood Hogwarts house is to discuss what it means to be a Slytherin, from the vantage point of an actual bona fide 2000% Slytherin, a.k.a. Yours Truly. Because guys, my people deserve justice. And if we don’t receive that justice, there will be consequences.

Slytherin =/= Evil

Guys. Guys. Not all Slytherins are necessarily evil. EVIL is not what encapsulates the Slytherin existence, although we have no qualms about this alignment whatsoever. Pls look to your left and observe that Slytherin = ambition, leadership, cunning, and charisma. It is not our fucking fault that many villains in literature and film also subscribe to these character traits. Nor is it our fucking fault that Rowling wrote practically every villain in the Harry Potter series as a member of our illustrious House. (I have always had issues with this but I will not delve into that hot mess at this time.)

Fav Things #3

Every Sunday we’ll be reflecting on the latest additions to our long list of Favorite Things. This post is your weekly update on the best trash in this universe. You’re welcome.

We’re back again this week with our favorite things. What do you expect to see? Yep, you’re going to see some ladies who are total YG trash. This post is somewhat more contained than last week but that’s because Anne is on the mend from last week’s illness and Mari got very sick and needs her rest. Regardless, enjoy- we only cultivate the most pure of trash for all to regard~*

#Selfie Soul Connection

Soul Connection: To Mari, Love Anne

Listen, it’s not every day you find a best friend. Hell, it’s not every year, decade, or century you find a best friend. In fact, if you really consider the world being the size it is, people being the way they are, and all the little weird coincidences in life we live through, it’s really a miracle we find a best friend at all.

That’s what I classify finding Mari as- a miracle.

Fav Things #2

Every Sunday we’ll be reflecting on the latest additions to our long list of Favorite Things. This post is your weekly update on the best trash in this universe. You’re welcome.

Welcome to the second week of Anne & Mariko’s favorite things!! This week is considerably longer than last week’s and, honestly, it’s probably because we are not holding back whatsoever. Are there a million things in the Hall of Fame (HoF)? Maybe. Did we even try to edit it down? No. Did I purposely try to exclude T.O.P because I’m trying to act as if I’m not totally obsessed with him? Absolutely.

Though this week pretty much came from hell, as most weeks following a long weekend do, we can agree that we found many things to love (and almost just as many things to h8, because deep down, we are h8rs). Now, onward, to trash!

Tumblr Therapy

tumblrpost

I know I’m not the only one, but I have this super complicated relationship with Tumblr as a (mostly) functional adult who really shouldn’t be on Tumblr. I actually just went through a major Tumblr drought because I kept telling myself, Mari, come on. Ain’t nobody got time for Tumblr. You have papers to grade. You have an office to vacuum. Today you had 10 Ritz crackers with some peanut butter for lunch and you need to acquire some dinner HELLO. Also, your closet looks like the aftermath of a hurricane that occurred during an apocalypse that wiped out 90% of mankind. NO TUMBLR FOR YOU. NONE.

And so, I didn’t Tumblr. I didn’t Tumblr for many, many moons. This was during those last three months or so of 2015 when I was overworking myself for fun & profit. I didn’t return to Tumblr until my 2 weeks of Winter Break, when I logged on and reblogged a few things here and there, then slowly started going back to my usual posting-a-lot-all-at-once-and-then-vanishing-for-24-hours routine. And you know what? It was actually good. I began to realize that Tumblr time has this bizarre calming effect on me. As a notorious workaholic who apparently has to work in order NOT to work, scrolling through my feed before bedtime counts as one of the few ways I can come close to shutting my brain off. (“You’re not hyper, your brain is hyper.” – my dad) Even after going back to work, and even though I really thought I would drop Tumblr again when school was back in session, I stayed. I’ve decided that I need it for stress relief.

It’s weird, I suppose, and I’m sure it’s more than a little bit irresponsible, but now even on weekdays I try to give myself at least half an hour of mindless Tumblr time. I reblog things to my // VERY CAREFULLY CURATED // collection of trash, photography, and tags of me wailing about Lee Jong Suk. I snack on something sugary and awful. I crank up my tiny space heater and put the same song on repeat the entire time. I stop thinking about work and school and what can I do for this child and why can’t this one remember that two quarters is fifty cents and all the other things always rushing through my head without a break. It’s nice.

Also, cheaper than real therapy. That’s important cause I am quite poor.
