Happy 89th Birthday Angela Lansbury!
(October 16, 1925)

Birthdays have never been tough for me. Aging simply opens up new pages of possibilities. Age really doesn’t have any bearing on my ability to look forward with joy.

-Angela Lansbury

Are you trying to tell me that you think that I am Anastasia ? - Anastasia (1997)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUGH MICHAEL JACKMAN
12.10.1968 

"With age, you see people fail more. You see yourself fail more. How do you keep that fearlessness of a kid? You keep going. Luckily, I’m not afraid to make a fool of myself.

Life is very long. T.S. Elliot. Not the first person to say it, certainly not the first person to think it, but absolutely god damn right.

Happy Birthday, Deborah Kerr (September 30, 1921 - October 16, 2007)

I learned when I was a girl that the golden rule in life is not to fight about things that aren’t important. Save up your strength and fighting spirit for the time that something comes along that is important to you. Then fight … and fight hard.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: SCANDINAVIA

Formed shortly after the Kalmar Union in protest against Durmstrang’s growing acceptance of the Dark Arts, the Scandinavian Academy for Sorcery Studies is situated in an undetectable location in Hinnøya for students predominantly from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden (and occasionally Finland, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands on account of their historical associations with the region) whose parents preferred for them to be educated in a more sympathetic environment. There is a large heated bubble on the outskirts of campus created for astronomy studies (by far the most popular academic stream at the school) where students can observe the night sky with an unobstructed view. A particular branch of divination correlating to celestial patterns and the movement of stars is studied intensively, and students occupy a large portion of their time speculating various outcomes of the alignment of stars and planets (overheard in the halls: “If Venus and Jupiter had been two degrees closer, I guarantee you I would have found that rogue troll already. The planets have not been helpful lately.”).
