1. Don’t try to piss quietly. Nobody in a public restroom thinks you’re knitting in your stall. They came to piss, just like you. And if you have to take a dump, do it. Get over your fear of public toilets. It’ll make life a lot easier.

2. Masturbate. Masturbate a lot. Talk about it with your friends. You’ve got the right to make yourself feel good and brag about it just like all the boys with extra large kleenex packages on their desks.

3. If you want the large fries, get the large fries. Hunger and appetite are nothing to be ashamed of, just human. Don’t ever feel guilty for eating in front of others. You need to nourish your body to stay alive. We all do.

4. Laugh as loud as you have to, no matter if you snort or gasp or literally scream.

5. Fart when you have to.

6. Always remember you weren’t born to visually please others. Forget the phrase “what if they think it’s ugly”. If you think it’s lovely, it is lovely. You wanna wear it, wear it!

7. Speak your mind! You can learn to do so without insulting others or shoving your opinion down other people’s throats.

My mother coments on appearance all the time, and is always trying to get me to laugh “more quietly”. I had no idea loud laughing was apparently offensive until she whammo’d me with that one.

If you point out casual racism on a regular basis, you’re going to get a lot of people whining that you’re too ‘politically correct,’ which is not a phrase that actually means anything anymore, besides saying of its speaker, ‘I am nostalgic for a time when I could be as racist as I wanted and nobody bugged me about it and thus I would like you to just shut up now you dumb person with your stupid thinky brain thoughts trying to infiltrate the hostile and unmovable lump of granite I replaced my mind with.’

pls give me a franchise where, when a good female character turns evil, she is not immediately dressed in a bondage-inspired outfit that is 2 strips of leather and a thong and instead dresses in sensible jeans and combat boots and a comfy jacket because hello, evil agenda here, there’s no time to be objectified, world domination is priority

"Come to the Dark Side, we have pockets and sensible footwear."

Pockets you say?

IM IN

australian wizards learn how to cast spells without saying the full spell because they’re lazy speakers

australian wizards are really good at non verbal spells because why say it when you can think it

australian wizards have highest rate of magical mishaps due to the experimentation of shortening of spell language

abr’cadabs, mate.

drop bears, sky-hooks, yowies and bunyips are real

wizard firefighters because the fires here are alive

indigenous spells only passed down by word of mouth within the tribe

and just imagine australian animagii, because I doubt any wizard or witch would change into something that looked out of place

massive branches of indigenous spells being wiped out when languages were lost

australian history of magic classes focusing on the impact of white settlement on indigenous wizarding communities

australian care of magical creatures classes are some of the most dangerous in the world

The Rainbow Serpent being an actual extant magical beast. As the giver of life it is the polar opposite to the basilisk. It’s rumoured that its glance can cure the petrification caused by the basilisk.

Bunjil being the animal form of a famous animagus

Hell every Dreaming story turning out to be an actual account of magical beasts or wizardry, only the exact facts are sketchy as they’ve been somewhat distorted by the telling of the tale from generation to generation 

Marngrook as a wizarding sport

Potions classes with endemic australian flora. Students struggling with potions using eucalypts due to their highly combustible nature

Australian wixen working with muggle firefighters during bushfires as they’re so used to eucalypts blowing up in their faces.

my ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that i may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, i have big dreams and i deserve to live a life i love and let that love radiate
