When you get a few minutes check out my friend Mary Lynn’s essay about getting arrested. Fun times (in a really un-fun sort of way).
If you like it, you can follow her on Twitter @MLR1985.
Great essay about why Neville is so great by Emily Asher-Perrin.
“It’s a lesson in self-worth under stronger personalities that most human beings could do with at some point or another. Because society at large insists that the only people of value are leaders and their closest confederates, people like Neville are dismissed at first blush much in the same manner that he is dismissed by his classmates in his first years at Hogwarts.”
One of the regulars finally admits his fear:
Me: You always look so guilty.
Student: That’s cause I’m afraid of you.
M: Why’s that?
S: I think you might hate me cause I’m loud, bring my books back late, and you know, goof-off, and this is a library, you know?
M: Seems like you’ve got a lot to think about.
