Okay… That’s it… I think I’m going to set this as my alarm on my phone so I can feel like I’m waking up in heaven on a daily basis.

There’s just something about children’s choirs.

There’s just something about this song

Okay, let me tell you a thing about this song. My mother is a nurse in the NICU with small premature babies. and she had one baby that was born addicted to 5 different drugs. Needless to say, the poor baby had to suffer through intense withdrawals, and my mom discovered that this song was incredibly soothing for the baby while he went through all of his pain. She would play this during his rougher patches, and it would calm him down. So yes, there is something about this song. 

Fun facts!

This song is a mele (soft, metered song with music) in contrast to an oli (a chant), and translated, it’s a song actually for Chief Kalakaua and Cheifess Lili’ulani. It tells of the beautiful scenery of all the islands, and specifically, a beautiful blooming flower that withstands the summits of each significant peak of Hawaii (including Mauna Kea!). 
If you contrast the words mele and oli, you will hear them (say them outloud!) how soft, and harsh they are respectively. This mele is comprised of mostly soft, flowing words (save for the name of the mountains!) and the combination of those beautiful words used to name beautiful things and the Children’s Chorus is probably what it is.

Peace(fulness) transcends language.

No but imagine aph Ukraine and Belarus getting synced periods and Russia just has to deal with them screaming and complaining about cramps and depleting the chocolate supply and everything.
Imagine that.

I remember excitedly waiting for this documentary to be released in 2011, and many of you will probably remember it. But I thought it was worth bringing it back

So people seemed to like the two doodles I’ve drawn, thats why I continued with something nicer. It sure took more work, but it was worth it. I hope you guys like that!

As you can see, Ivan is younger than the other two. He is in the first year and one of the shortest pupils… but not for long, I can guarantee. Though it’s his first year, he is pretty talented with magic without practicing as much as other students, but nobody actually knows why since he tells everyone who asks that hes never done that before. And luckily, he is no show off. He’s very decent about it, all he wants is to become friends. That’s more or less of a problem, since Ivan is one of a kind that says things he should not say in various situations. He is way too honest.

Arthur, like Alfred, is in the second year. They’ve been rivals (of course what else) since they’ve attended Hogwarts. Arthur mostly hangs out with Ivan because he is nice and talented, and they help each other learn. But actually, he is more of a loner. Always in the library, giving his best in learning and therefore tries to block everything that could get in the way out. He has hoped to be put into Ravenclaw, and sure felt let down as he joined Slytherin instead without understanding why. The reason is that Arthur can be very impudent at some points, he is a fantastic liar for example. Most teachers like him, but he claims to hate nearly everyone. 

Alfred is a great person, at least he thinks that. Hes openly proud about being a Gryffindor. Despite the way he shows himself, he is pretty self conscious sometimes. And he knows that some people are clever enough to see that, Ivan for example. So instead of forming a friendship with these people, he makes fun of them to get laughters from “cool people”. He learns very soon that this is not how one should behave and starts helping people out in as many ways as possible. Soon he is known for that and there are barely people that don’t like him.

"I’m the sixth in our family to go to Hogwarts. You could say I got a lot to live up to. Bill and Charlie have already left – Bill was head boy and Charlie was captain of Quidditch. Now Percy’s a prefect. Fred and George mess around a lot, but they still get really good marks and everyone thinks they’re really funny. Everyone expects me to do as well as the others, but if I do, it’s no big deal, because they did it first."
