JK Rowling said she would have made Seamus/Dean canon but she felt it would be distracting from the main trio

Literally how much space do you need to have a line about Dean asking Seamus to the Yule ball

Look, I’ll try

"Parvati had tried to ask Dean to the ball, but he told her he was going with Seamus instead."

DONE

You are just the best

Just saw this and “access to a car”?
… debatable.

Bitch, if you were sick, I’d pick up the keys and go to you WITH OR WITHOUT A VALID LICENSE HOLDER OVER THE AGE OF 21 WITH AT LEAST 2 YEARS OF DIVING EXPERIENCE IN THE PASSENGER’S SEAT!

She’s Got A Problem With Common Core, And She Ain’t Afraid To Calmly Explain Why She Hates It

Diane Ravitch has no problem getting squarely in the middle of our education debate. As an unabashed critic about where much of education reform is going, she’s bound to rub some people the wrong way. But her points about testing and the root problems of our education system are definitely worth hearing.

montereybayaquarium:

Girls rock science! In June, a group of bright middle school girls, mostly from Watsonville and Salinas, spent an afternoon untying themselves from a human knot and learning secret handshakes as part of a team building exercise. Later, the girls created their own blogs to document their experiences during a week-long summer camp.

The girls are participants in the Aquarium’s Young Women in Science program, which seeks to inspire interest in science and conservation among young women by introducing them to the marine life in and around Monterey Bay. The camp is presented in both English and Spanish, creating an inclusive setting for the girls to learn how they can help save the world’s oceans. 

The program is part of a long-term effort by the Aquarium to help young women aspire to careers in the sciences and math, and fight the notion that there’s no place for them in those fields. As part of this girl power groove, participants also get to meet women currently working in the sciences.
