The Good & the Bad  
My brother was just home for a week long visit from Boston! He is going to Harvard there, finishing up his Master's in Architecture and I am so proud of him. He is truly an amazing person, with a tremendous work ethic and an extreme talent for what he does. I envy him so much because I wish I had the drive and motivation that he has, I just have no clue what I want to do and it's very frustrating at times. I miss my brother so much when he's away. It gets harder and harder without him around. We were never very close when we were younger, but now that we are both older our relationship has grown and expanded. As happy as I am about that, I also feel so guilty that we didn't have that when he was around all the time :(.

HBP NEWS: Okay, now it's time to rant. I just read a review of this film from someone who got to go to a screening of it here and I am quite depressed about what I found out. I, myself, happen to be a hardcore Tonks/Lupin fangirl and after reading that they barely appear in the film and their relationship is never even mentioned, I am devastated *cries*. I just can't understand why the screenwriters always choose to leave that particular storyline out of the films??! There are quite a few people out there that are fans of this relationship and/or the characters and it's just incomprehensible to me how they could keep ignoring that entire part of the story. Does anyone else agree? I was upset about the release date getting moved to next year, but now I really don't care much when it comes out...

1. Your layout is so lovely :)
2. Did you see the person in the ONTD comments who was all "they're not that important to the story line"?? I was like :O I'm bummed right along with you.

Thank you, Jorajo, I'm so glad you like the new layout :) I did see those comments and it really annoyed me, how can anyone seriously say that?! I think that story line is critical, especially in terms of how the series ends.

Exactly. You do know that Gary Oldman isn't in either DH film, which means...Sirius isn't in it at the end? Ugh.

Oh no, really? What is wrong with these people? That was one of the most touching parts at the end of DH :(. Now I'm really depressed.
