Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review

To be fair I wasn’t going to move this over from my other blog because frankly I wanted to review things which weren’t really well known, but then again I thought it would be a waste not to move i over and frankly as you guys probably have notice I have a huge obsession with Harry Potter so I felt like this needs to be on here wheather it is popular or not.

As you know or you don’t, Harry Potter it was the first book series I wanted to read, you see I suffer from dyslexia and I also have his thing that I should try anything that I know I am going to fail at, enter this thing called reading. When I first got into the Harry Potter series my mum use to read them to me, she did this up to the fifth book. I also had the audio books and I use to follow the words. It takes me about thirty minutes to read the first Harry Potter because of the audio books having in away brainwashed me over the years and I can simply scan the books without really looking and I know the words.

The reason I am saying all this is because my dream is to be a film producer (the ones who cast and get all the funding for the film. My parents are both accountants and they always joke about how even though I am determined not to follow there route I still what a job where I have to deal with budgets) I didn’t watch the first or the seven film in the cinema no idea why I just know I didn’t. Harry Potter made me interested in the making of a film, the behind the scenes aspects. I’ve probably watched the special features as many times as the films them selves so to say the least I was really excited for an eighth Harry Potter book.

The good thing about this, is for people like me who struggle with reading having it in play format is perfect it makes it easier to read each word rather than having a blurry mess of words which the other Harry Potter books have caused. I have studied Drama in the past so I am use to this sort of format, my brother no so much. It annoyed him a little he is far more academic than I am, he actually enjoys reading and although he has done a bit of acting in the past, but he is not use to this format. I do agree this story lacked the detail that it needed, the reason Shakespeare works so well is because it is beautifully written and has plenty of detail. This script lacked it and due to a thin story it doesn’t come across as well. Then again I shouldn’t really compared one of the greatest writers to Harry Potter but then I can be a drama snob. Well I can be a snob full stop.

The next bit contains spoilers. There are parts of this story really well planned out, the friendship between Albus, and Scorpio is probably a better friendship than the original trio. Although I understand Ron and Hermione fighting all the time, that does tend to happen to people who are trying to remain friends but clearly like each other. Most of the time it was over being jealous of someone. That being said Harry and Ron’s friendship annoys me at two points, the first being Ron spends weeks hating Harry for thinking that he put his name in the goblet of fire, yet he believe Harry at once for Voldemort return and he walks away from Harry and Hermione in the last book. He also believes Harry is not the heir of Slytherin. Those three things I think are all related and well Ron does one, then he does the opposite, then he goes back again. If they were really best friends then I doubt it would be so all over the place. It might have been jealously though. See that was the redeeming quality of this book the bad points are long.

The whole concept of the time thing just seemed really pointless and also broke rules which JK Rowling had already set out. The Time Turner doesn’t change time because after all it has already happened. If that makes sense Harry even says that in the third book. So these two boys go back and change the past which has broken one of the main rules that were already set out. It’s really annoyed me and thus made the whole book more like a bad fan fiction. The whole Voldemort having a daughter just seemed cliché as fuck.

There were nice moments sure, but you have that even in the pile of crap of Fifty shades of grey (which let’s be honest is a book about stalking) the plot was weak and almost needed the detail which the books have, maybe just maybe it would have been decent then rather than wtf is happening. Anyway it’s poor in harry potter terms but better than some of the crap theses days so gets a 3/5

I originally gave this a two but I think that was just the incail shock about how bad it was frankly it is not bad, it is simply average in my opinon.

A Review of Bravissimo

Just going to add something a little happy on here because I am trying to work about politics but I am just going around in a circle so I am going to take this from my old blog and put it on here.

So a review on the bravissimo swimwear. Also, a great excuse to show off my body because let’s be quite honest I have a good body for someone who doesn’t work out. When I got to about 14 my boobs just suddenly got bigger but I didn’t gain any weight. I think I went up four cup sizes in a year. Although my band size (26) doesn’t actually exist in most swim wear or bras this brand does however make slightly tighter band sizes which fit me perfectly (it does change on the style as some are a little loose) so since there I’ve struggled to find pretty and big bras. My mum was told about this brand a fair few years ago as I have seemed to inherit her big boobs, so after failing to find my size on yet another shopping trip my mum told me to try this brand. Most of my bras are under £20 as I get them in the sale and well my boobs are still growing so do not want to spend more than that on something very few people see. This was swimwear I brought last year, mix and match another thing I like about this brand you don’t have to by the set if you don’t want to. Your bottoms may still fit you, but the top might not and vice verse. They are comfortable, stylish and fit well. The one thing I will say is some brands fit certain boobs shapes better than others but that’s more of a guess thing, they do have a return policy so always worth a look before you buy anything. If you find a brand that fit well stick to it changes of coming across a bra that doesn’t fit well is slim. This website also have there own sizing chart which you should follow before buying one. 90% of people wear the wrong size. I spent much of my life wearing a band 32 which was far too big for me. They have the most accurate sizing guide I’ve come across, worth the look. I give this brand a 4.5/5

The Art of Lying

I can’t remember how old I was when I realised that my mother didn’t know when I was lying, but I remember I was at prep school (So age 8-12) as I know by year eight I had figured it out. I can remember lying to my mother, probably about something really dull and boring but I was probably scared that she was going to get angry at me.

I lie a lot, mostly because I get bored, like people really bore me and therefore I lie about really mundane things in order to make myself and the people around me a little more interesting. This is making me look like some sort of crazy person, and maybe I am, but at the end of the day I don’t lie about serious things.

This isn’t meant to be about what I lie about, because frankly most of those lies I can no longer retain, but it’s about how I think I get away with it. Take a game of bluffing, poker, granted I haven’t played in a while so might have lost my touch, I have also never really play seriously so who knows if it’s just my friends being dumb or I am actually get away with it.

I can’t remember how old i was, again I was probably around 12 that I started to do this, as I remember using this trick playing a game while on a ski trip with my school. The game in question was cheat, although sometimes called bullshite, and the art of the game is to lie. It’s a perfect start, however most people, when they lie, have certain things that give them away. Honestly, I have no idea what my tell is, and frankly no one has ever told me what mine is, so who knows if i really have one? However, I have trained myself to produce a tell, I know what you are thinking, why would you want to get caught? The corner of my lip turns up when I lie, though it is something I have forced myself to do, and honestly if my lip turns up I probably want you to think i’m lying, and I am probably not lying. The first few times I’ll be lying, and then it will just be a fifty, fifty chance that I am in fact lying. It’s weird and maybe I am a little bit manipulative, but there is something about the rush that I get when I lie.  I also burst out laughing, again something which probably means that I want you to think i’m lying.

Now I have never lied about anything serious, most of the time it’s like I say I went shopping, and actually went somewhere completely different. I would say they are a little more than white lies, but not by much, I have okay morals and therefore lying about a crime for example is not a route that I would go down. What I am trying to say is that lying is all about is believing what you say, and honestly there is nothing more satisfying than seeing someone believe a rather over the top lie.

I lie a lot, yet if you ask anyone in my life they will call me brutally honest, and frankly that’s true as well. I am the type of person who will say you look crap when you ask my opinion on a new shade of lipstick, I will say if I like the new girl you are dating, if you ask, and every so often I will just blurt out what I am thinking, no matter how cruel it made me, but honestly this just makes it easier to lie. At the end of the day most people like to protect how other’s feel or to get out of trouble, but I lie because I want to seem a little more interesting, as I suffer with boredom. Which some say is a sign of a lack of intelligence, but that is another subject I’ll talk about another time.

Maybe I lie so much because I never forgave my parents about lying about Father Christmas, honestly even though fifteen years has past since I found out (They used the same wrapping paper) I honestly believe it is the root of my lying habits because the two people who you are meant to trust the most lied for the first seven years of my life. My mum also wrote a little note pretending to be the tooth fairy, which is something I am still bitter about.  That’s why I think I lie, and ultimately I lie about so much, in fact you could almost call me a complustory, I told my boyfriend of three years a few months ago that most the stuff I’ve told him is proably bullshite. We haven’t spoken about it since, but we are still together so he must like me for some other reason.

Lying sometimes helps, and sometimes it doesn’t but lying is apart of us all, and it is something which is drilled in to you from a young age, however some people are just better at it, than others.

The Media is Hypocritical

If I had this blog when Obama was in office I would have said that I like him but equally I would have written articles which show him in a negative light because let us be honest the media are pretty much up Obama’s arse. Trump is a completly different story. Over time I am moving to realise that maybe I am slightly pro trump, but frankly I just see it as having an opinion. I personally think Trump is an arrogant arsehole but if I choose to agree with a politiction on wheather I liked them as a person or not I would never back a politition in a million years.

Some of what i write here I would never say in front of people I know out of fear, a load of people know that I stand up for the one being battered no matter the side they are on. So with Trump, now being bashed for something Obama pretty much did but never announced I would like to share a few facts wih the world.

Obama had a huge issue with Fox News, while Trump has a huge issue with CNN. The way they dealt with those two facts was very different. Trump calls them out in socail media and in speeches which although is a little childish he is allowed to do that because of his freedom of speech. Obama did it in a much sneaker way, he would get his team to phone them up and threaten them, saying they would never be allowed to come to one of his press conferences if they show him in a negative light.

For example one of the last things that Obama signed was in fact a propaganda law. It was signed due to the issue of the Russians, and although this is something in which Trump can enforced he has yet to speak about this law so I am unsure if he even knows about it. The law is…

“The Center is authorized to provide grants or contracts of financial support to civil society groups, media content providers, nongovernmental organizations, federally funded research and development centers, private companies, or academic institutions for the following purposes:
To support local independent media who are best placed to refute foreign disinformation and manipulation in their own communities.
To collect and store examples in print, online, and social media, disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda directed at the United States and its allies and partners.
To analyze and report on tactics, techniques, and procedures of foreign information warfare with respect to disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda.
To support efforts by the Center to counter efforts by foreign entities to use disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda to influence the policies and social and political stability of the United States and United States allies and partner nations.”

To me that sounds like that Obama want to look at every part of news before it was published. he almost wants to ignore all the bad things going on and make in positive. it is better to follow news about other countries from other countries because they are less likly to be controlled by the media and in turn just spread propaganda. I haven’t done the best job explaining this and for that I am sorry, if you wish to read more follow the linked before and read my sources

I would also like to talk about the fact that Obama threw three reports of his campaign, pretty much near the end because he didn’t agree with them. even though they had invested so much money in to the whole thing.. That is really no different. I would also like to add they were three converitive news outlets and he let things such as glamour stay upon the plane, which is a fashion magazine. It just makes me think that even before he got to office he wanted to crush the right winged magazines and wanted himself to be seen to be doing only good, which is ho we spent the last eight years. For a detailed report of which magazines were thrown off this place, please read source three.

I don’t really agree with what Trump is doing about this but what I hate even more is the fact that Obama faced no outrage, the media is a complete hypocrite. I believe in 2014 Obama’s Adminastraion won the Jefferson Muzzle Award for restricting free press. Yet no one talks about that? I wonder why? Maybe because Obama administration’s relentless aggressive pursuit of individuals alleged to have leaked government information, while the press office’s routine shunning of journalists from official functions in exchange for regularly relying on a private White House photographer. That is right the only photography which were allowed at press functions were the White House Photograph who of course is not going to show how unbelievably bad Obama treated the press by a mix of intimidation and blackmail. Although Fox as never “Banned” in the way trump has banned six networks they were often left out and uninvited to press events because they continued to publish inaccurate things about Obama.

Sources

I’ve add sources now because frankly I know what I’ve read but you guys can’t read my mind and therefore I thought I would add where I get my information from. This is a way for you to get a full understanding of why I feel this way.

Are Transgender People Enforcing Sexist Stereotypes?

I believe that question is a good summary of why I have a huge issue of the whole transgender movement. When asking people about why the feel they are born in the wrong body the answer tends to be a bunch of social stereotypes. Here are an example of what female and male characteristics are…

fb738761-d5ca-4e4e-a6b7-568d1a5c16c8-13517-00000c62d603068c_tmp

I have grown up with a mother who does all the DIY and a father who is a better cook. Thoses are two social stereotypes so if we are going on the theory behind why transgender people feel that way then my mother should be a man and my dad should be a woman. When I was at prep school (look at me I am posh haha) at the end of every year they gave out prizes for every subject, I won three out of four times in the subject of design and technology which according to social expectations that is a male subject. Does that mean identify as male? NO IT DOES NOT. I grew in a family that you can act and dress like you want and that will compared to how I am meant to behave according to my sex.

i just think changing your gender is so pointless when we have been spending years trying to close the gap of social expectations. If you are born a female and believe you have the characteristics of a boy, so fucking what? That does not mean you were born in the wrong body it just means you have more of a male personality. I have more of a male personality but that doesn’t mean I would change everything about myself just to align my body with my mind. I wish my boobs were smaller, and wish that guys clothing did my size because I’ve always thought it was better (and cheaper) than that of girls. None of thoses things mean I am a man in a woman’s body. They just mean I’ve come to accept that it doesn’t matter what you look like you can be anything you put your mind to it without having to go through surgery and such.

While I am writing this I am currently watching the football, Arsenal vs Sutton if you want to know which game. I am an arsenal fan you could say me having an interest in football is in fact a male trait but again that doesn’t mean I am a man. I have no issue if you are a boy and want to wear make-up. I have no issue if you are a woman and you want to play rugby but I don’t think just acting like a stereotype means you are that gender. By changing your gender or attempting to, you are actually making those social expectations a whole lot worst and so I honestly don’t like the whole movement of transgender people. This is coming from a girl who may like my dresses but my personality and character is a lot more of a male stereotypes than that of a woman’s.

Stop conforming to social expectations and stereotypes of what characteristics you should have and relate it back to your sex.

I would just like to say if you can give me an answer to the question why do you think you were born in the wrong body? Without talking about stereotypes then you are more than welcome to have a go at what I have said.

Fuck You Fake News!

I watched Trump’s spontaneous speech yesterday, I actually read it out to two of my housemates, both of them are a lot more left than I but once I read it out they said the words, I do believe he is trying to cover things up but if he does everything he says then at least he is trying to do a lot of good.

A lot of that speech was about fake news, now I have probably talked about this before because it is something I am passionate about because I do believe the media shouldn’t lie, but often it is the lies that make the money. When I read an article I check to see if there are sources, if the words ‘some sources’ are used then i looked for a different article because you need to actually know who says what when it comes to articles. For example I could say, sources tell us that Donald Trump has a green penis, that doesn’t mean it is true. I remember when i did history I would always have the words, “Which sources?” In the margins whenever I used the words “some sources tell us”, you need to actully use infomation that is creditable.

If it isn’t bogus facts, which are fucking up the public perception it is also the fact that they media are telling half truth, the immingration control for one thing.  According to the New York Times, around seven hundred people were held by immigration officers over the first fourty eight hours of this immigration control. I have not checked this number but it does seem to have caused the most outrange so I thought I would use it. Now that number is not huge in compassion to the year 2013, it is actually not that bad. On average 1200 people per day were held in dententions in the US, that is nearly double the amount of which happened when this order was implemented. Having gone to a boarding school I know plenty of people who would be questioned when coming back into the country. It may not be fair but they just want to double check those who fit the apperence on those who do wish to harm the population. By all means say that seven hundred people have been unfairly questioned but then also compare it to other infomation, because let me be honest the general population are thick.

I have an IQ of 124, which puts me in the top 91% of the population, I am smarter than the average person but that doesn’t mean that the average person needs to believe everything that is put in front of them. I like to check a lot of the facts that I use because I don’t want to become someone who uses there platform to in theory brainwash people in order to believe what they believe. We have got to be the moment in the time where all our media seems to be very  left wing, I don’t actually trust most of the right winged media so I am left somewhere in the middle not wanting to believe bias news and not wanting to believe manipulated news. What can I do? Not a lot.

I don’t have the power to preach to the masses, I may have a few hundred followers on here and on my twitter account and few thousand on my Instagram but they are following me because of my boobs not my blog. I want to make a difference but the only way I can get notice will cause a thousand different people to sent me death threats. I already get enough.

Saying the words I am a white conservative is like wanting people to suddenly hate you. I live in a world where I am allowed to express my opinions and I know not everything I will say people with agree with, I don’t even agree with my parents when it comes to politics. I was against Brexit and I supported Gary Johnson but I have very little issue when it comes to trump. I am not make sense all the time but I am a twenty one year old girl, I don’t even know who I am how can I know how i feel. If i see someone bashing Trump I try and get them to see the good, if I see people bashing Hillary I try and let them see the good she has done. Everyone has a good and a bad side to them and sometimes one is shown more than the other when it comes to the media.

I am a stronger believer than you need to give people a chance to show their true colours. I am the person who thinks the death pentaly should be scrapped. I think prison should be focused on educating people. I think that people who have an attraction to children but do not act on it should be helped and given dolls in hope of helping them with their condition. I believe that people don’t need to say they are transgender and try and change everything about them, I believe they should just wear and act how they want without saying “I am a male born in a female body” I believe that people choose to be offended. Regarding the whole Karrie Kloss thing and her dressing up as someone from Japan, unless you are from that country or have relatives from that country you cannot say you think what she has done is offensive to people of Japan. I have read the comments of a lot of those articles and most of them don’t even care, those who are actually from tha country. A few number of people (Most of which no nothing about Japan or it’s culture) made comments on twitter and studdenly the media starts saying that it is inappropriate.

In that theory white chicks is inappropriate, how dare two black guys dress up and two white blonde girls, that offended me SO much. Just to let know know I don’t care because it is a funny movie. Karlie did a good job showcasing another cultura and she should be praised for letting the fashion industry see that rather than getting bashed by the media due to a few people on twitter saying it is inappropriate, who aren’t even from that country.

My rant now is over, as I can’t be bothered to type anymore, just make sure you check those sources.

FUCK Valentines Day

Today I spent the day just like I would normally, I got up, I had a shower I did some work and I watch some god awful day time TV. With just minutes until the end of this day I thought I would write this. I hate valentine’s day. Now before loads of  people just say you are bitter and single, I do and fact have a boyfriend, he just happens to live on the other side of the country.  He sent me a message earlier asking me if I was watching the football and I said no, my housemate is spending time with his needy girlfriend. I know that sounds harsh, I live with two couples, one spent the whole day together the other treated the day just like any other day.

I honestly don’t see the fucking point in the day, if you feel the need to celebrate this so called day, then is your relationship really that good? If you need to throw all your emotions to the person you ‘love’ once a year, why don’t you do it every god damn day.

I grew up in a home that this so called day wasn’t a big deal, sure my parents gave each other a card and my dad brought home flowers but shall I tell you what my dad would randomly buy flowers throughout the year no matter the day.

I wanted to get this out because I honestly don’t get the whole thing about the day, to me it is only there just for companies to make money out of you. It wasn’t until the fourteenth century till Valentines day was even connected to love and romance. I just don’t want to be apart of a holiday which is about nothing more than money. It is not needed, like I said if you love each other you should be showing that every day not on this day.

You should be getting/giving flowers every other week. You should be going out on dates when ever you have time, you should be expressing love through letters and words. Why do you let it all out on this day? because like many people everyone has become so manipulated by the media and by the world that they feel the need to get absorbed in to consumerism.

HAPPY EVERY OTHER DAY
