#actors who are actually their character
the greatest casting ever.
Even better when you think about how Dan got a place for himself in NY to continue his career, Emma went to a school in USA, and Rupert bought an ice cream truck.
Follow your dreams Rupert
I didn’t know this. So I looked it up and - HE ACTUALLY DID.
‘I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short.
I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that. ‘I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, “Ain’t you Ron Weasley?” And I’ll say, “It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.”
It makes it even better that he just GIVES the icecream away.
this poST GETS MORE AND MORE AMAZING AS YOU READ

For a change. Not that it hasn’t been bearable or that it’s been necessarily “bad” at all these past few months, but truthfully I’ve been sorta lost. Until recently. I finally feel like what I’m doing at this moment is exactly what I should be doing. It’s not just a dull, repetitive series of days blending together in a fog and barely going through the motions, doing what it is everyone thinks I should be doing.
Truth is, I feel more liberated than I have at all this past year. Fuck ‘em if they think I’m wrong. I’m taking a break from school because underneath all the “goals” I was working towards and the credits I was racking up, the debt I was acquiring, the struggle of pleading with financial aid to come through on ANY platform there is for struggling students and low income Americans in general and being denied because I’m not married or 24 or have a baby for Christ’s sake, and the praise for “actually doing something for my future”, I was under so much stress. Perhaps it’s “unwise” to take a break from community college to focus on what really matters, right now. But unwise decisions are what we have to thank for making us who we are.
I don’t HAVE to do anything but die. And pay taxes. That’s it.
I stand behind what I do and say 100%. I always have. The amount of effort to balance surviving in the world on my own and keeping up with the amount of bills that come with being a “young adult” by myself, while simultaneously pouring every last penny I have left into a program for I’m-not-exactly-sure-what-career-yet is excruciatingly difficult. Manageable, yes. But why put this on myself now when the job market is shit anyways (and getting shittier by the year) AND I can do this later, when fafsa and other government programs will help me out a bit? Lord knows if there is a general category for those who need and deserve assistance, I’m sure I fall in there somewhere. But I gotta play the game. And wait it out.
I’m living in the Now. The Present. It is a gift, and I am learning more and more how to enjoy every last minute of it. I am happy. Not in the WE’RE GOING TO DISNEYLAND kind of excitement (although I’m not exactly sure from experience what that feeling entails). But I’m happy in the way that my bones are not aching for something I just can’t quite place my figer on anymore. We’re signing the paperwork for the apartment tomorrow and then the journey begins on Saturday. I cant say I’ve ever felt this way about anyone before. The minute we met this plan was set into motion, before either one of us even said a word. My expectations are realistic but I know this is Fate.
This is all so surreal. These past two weeks have been a struggle and a half but now I can take solace in the knowedge that it was all worth it.
