Favorite Howl’s Moving Castle quotes
Things are better, btw.
I think we have a thing where we try not to stay in a fight for too long. Mostly because it makes us both miserable and when we’re both raw from fighting and getting mad, we enter into a state of sullen depression or reflection and somehow we end up apologizing and trying to make things better.
In other news, I realized that we have sort of technically been together for 2 years and 8 months.
Sometimes I get so mad at him that I want to yell and throw things at the wall.
Hello there. I’m not going to put this under a read more, so feel free to skip this block of text if you see it. As you know, I haven’t been updating the blog with anything substantial for a long time. There are plenty of reasons for this,
One, I’m still struggling with Tumblr’s new interface. It’squite cumbersome, but I’m getting used to it day by day.
Two, I’ve found myself both slacking off in the work department and finding no more inspiration to write, whether it be the day logs or my own ideas for stories or poems. I used to think of myself as a writer, but now I am not so sure any more.
Three, school has been getting tougher. Granted, a lot of it is because I keep getting distracted from my senior work load, but I’ve also been going through this odd pseudo-depression state recently.
Four, just recently, I discovered something about myself. Or maybe accepted something about myself. For me, I find myself very cool and collected a lot of the time, sometimes annoyingly positive. But beneath my goofy exterior, I have a lot of emotions that I deal with by blocking them all out. I invalidate my feelings by comparing myself to other people, or other situations, and force myself to move on with things.
Now I think I’ve finally acknowledged this about myself, and today I managed to do a lot more with myself.
When I wake up tomorrow, it will be a brand new day for the both of us.
I just want to discuss this for a moment. Not only is it adorable, but it showcases so many emotions of that first encounter with someone you like.
George; When George first notices Meg his eyes fixate on her for a moment and he straightens his file as his body tenses with anxiousness. He then looks down when he realizes that she isn’t looking at him and continues to look down for ages. You can clearly see that he is thinking how to initiate a conversation, how to not act dumb in front of someone so beautiful. I love how he balls his fist because he is so tensed around her and then takes a deep breath and relaxes his fingers before blinking up and slightly sighing over the silence. Also the way he purses his lips together because there’s so much he wants to say but he doesn’t know where to begin so he just stands there smiling and secretly marvelling over Meg.
Meg; Everything about her is innocently seductive. I love the way her eyes flick over at him slightly embarrassed and she looks down when he gazes towards her but secretly glances back from the corner of her eye and smirks a little because she is attracted to him. The way she holds her file tight against her chest because she too is nervous and shy. I love that the little quirkiness of Meg is when she tucks her hair behind her ear. It’s such a gentle yet flirtatious move. She glances at George while doing it with a cute smile hoping that he’s staring at her or that he notices she’s looking and that she’s interested. Then she peeks back and sways a little and they both continue to pretend they’re waiting for the train when in actual fact both are waiting for one another to say “hello”.
Everything about this short scene is packed with so many emotions that even I get butterflies for them as characters. I think Disney portrayed this so beautifully. The innocence of love between a boy and girl back in the 1940’s. Such a simple encounter of meeting your “true love”.

Another wonderful commentary. jashfkasjdasd
This is why that guy who said “there’s no reason for me to care about these characters getting together” annoys me. Yes there is, it’s just shown subtlely and effectively through wordless animation instead of having it forcefully laid out in your face
We all know those couples: they’ve been together forever, they’re crazy about each other, and they somehow just make it look effortless. What’s their secret? Here are the top lessons to learn from successful couples:
· They stick it out. Successful couples don’t bail the moment things get rocky. They know the value of sticking it out, letting tough times or arguments play out, and seeing things through to the other side.
· They are best friends. These couples aren’t just romantic partners, they are best friends too. Their relationship has deepened to the point where they have formed a bond that goes beyond just dating, and they’ve become each other’s closest friends. The trust and respect you have for your best friend makes for a romantic relationship that is iron clad.
· They laugh at life. Even though stress and hard times come their way, they find ways to laugh at it and find humor together. Being able to laugh at life’s tough situations shows that no matter what, you’ll get through it.
· They deal with stress. Rather than letting stress build up until it explodes, successful couples deal with it. They talk about it and find ways to work through stress, rather than letting it fester.
Happy 17th birthday, my love. I look forward to when we see each other again.
Soon. We’re almost there.
Have a good one. c:
