I need to get out of this rut. I’ve been back in LA for just over a month now and I feel like I have very little to show for it. I need to find a job. And ideally a used car, too. I’m still settling into my new place (with the boyfriend and two other housemates), but I’m starting to go a little stir crazy. Fortunately, I’ve been keeping in touch with Meredith and Michelle and they’ve been super supportive. Mer and I have talked a lot about the sudden freedom and confusion of post-grad life. I feel totally caught off guard by it. I know I need to get off my ass and get serious about job hunting - and for that reason I’m dedicating tomorrow afternoon to editing my resume, working on my portfolio, and applying for jobs. But I also think it’s important to take care of myself - to get out of the house, be active and healthy. So I’m trying to come up with little things I can do to feel better. For one, I can start going on walks. I plan to go to my nearest library and sign up for a library card. I’m really close to LACMA and a bunch of other great museums so I’m going to look into upcoming exhibits. And I really want to catch up with my friends in LA (I’ve been dreadful at keeping in touch). Beyond that, I’ll keep brainstorming. I’m trying to be less negative and self-pitying, which at times can be really hard. But today’s actually been a pretty good day and I’m really hoping tomorrow will be too.



I was making myself some new Matt Smith/Eleven wallpapers, and since I like them so much, I’m giving them to you, my fellow Whovians, to use as well!

  • works best on windows
  • my url wont show up when you set your wallpaper settings to “fill” (w)
  • if you use a slideshow as your desktop background, all four of these combined are beautiful (w)

Please like this post if you use one, I like to know if anyone likes my work because it encourages me to make more graphics!

(disclaimer; the textures are not mine, I simply gathered them and made them into a wallpaper) 

these wallpapers are so pretty! currently using all four in a slideshow as suggested and they look awesome

Emma Watson’s speech in occasion of the “HeForShe” UN campaign launching.

yabanned:

Today we are launching a campaign HeForShe. I am reaching out to you because we need your help. We must try to mobilize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for change. We don’t just want to talk about it. We want to try and make sure it’s tangible.

I was appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women 6 months ago.

The more I spoke about feminism, the more I realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism by definition is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes.

When I was 8, I was called bossy because I wanted to direct a play for our parents. At 15, my girlfriends didn’t want to join sports teams because they didn’t want to appear masculine. At 18, my male friends were unable to express their feelings.

I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive.

Why has the word become such an unpopular one? I think it is right I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I think it is right that I should make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that affect my life. I think it is right that socially, I am afforded the same respect as men.

But sadly, I can say that there is no one country in the world where all women can expect to see these rights. No country in the world can yet say that they achieved gender equality. These rights are considered to be human rights but I am one of the lucky ones.

My life is a sheer privilege because my parents didn’t love me less because I was born a daughter. My school did not limit me because I was a girl. These influences are the gender equality ambassadors that made me who I am today. They may not know it but they are the feminists needed in the world today. We need more of those.

It is not the word that is important. It is the idea and the ambition behind it because not all women received the same rights I have. In fact, statistically, very few have.

In 1997, Hillary Clinton made a famous speech in Beijing about women’s rights. Sadly, many that she wanted to change are still true today. Less than 30% of the audience were male. How can we effect change in the world when only half of it is invited to participate in the conversation?

Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either.

We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled.

Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves.

You might think: who is this Harry Potter girl? What is she doing at the UN? I’ve been asking myself at the same thing. All I know is that I care about this problem and I want to make this better. And having seen what I’ve seen and given the chance, I feel my responsibility to say something. Edmund Burke said all that is need for the forces of evil to triumph is for good men and women to do nothing

In my nervousness for this speech and my moment of doubt, I told myself: if not me, who? If not now, when? You have the opportunity here. If you believe in equality, I implore you: we must strive for a united world but the good news is we have a platform. It is called he for she. I invite you to step forward, to be seen and I ask yourself: if not me, who? If not now, when?

Thank you.
