1. Mixed feelings about the last day of internship today- on one hand i regret not putting my absolute best for work everyday and possibly screwing up my chances of getting a TC at that firm but on the other hand, so grateful and thankful for the other loveliest interns and pupil lawyers that made all the mundane work much more enjoyable. Really going to miss all the random hths in the middle of the day at the pantry with Trina & Paul, the sudden outbursts of laughter from our lawyers’ room all the time and the sense of relief/ satisfaction when each day of work is finally over. Tonight’s farewell dinner was a blast, i literally laughed till i cried because of the epic love stories that were shared. I can only hope that my future colleagues will be half as awesome as all of them.
2. Why am I addicted to friends again?! I’ve watched all the episodes from all TEN seasons at least thrice and I still find it just as enjoyable. I need help.

The moment when Harry takes Draco's wand
- J. K. Rowling: I said to Arthur, my American editor - we had an interesting conversation during the editing of seven - the moment when Harry takes Draco's wand, Arthur said, God, that's the moment when the ownership of the Elder wand is actually transferred? And I said, that's right. He said, shouldn't that be a bit more dramatic? And I said, no, not at all, the reverse. I said to Arthur, I think it really puts the elaborate, grandiose plans of Dumbledore and Voldemort in their place. That actually the history of the wizarding world hinged on two teenage boys wrestling with each other. They weren't even using magic. It became an ugly little corner tussle for the possession of wands. And I really liked that - that very human moment, as opposed to these two wizards who were twitching strings and manipulating and implanting information and husbanding information and guarding information, you know? Ultimately it just came down to that, a little scuffle and fistfight in the corner and pulling a wand away.
- Melissa Anelli: It says a lot about the world at large, I think, about conflict in the world, it's these little things -
- J. K. Rowing: And the difference one individual can make. Always, the difference one individual can make.

"Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."
