30 Day Challenge // Day 24 // Something That Represents Your Favorite Culture
I’m Buddhist and I’ve always loved the imagery even before I was. The wrathful deities from Tibetan and Mahayana art always fascinated me as a kid. They were like transformations the gods took on in battle. Like a monster magical girl I guess. His is name is Mahakala. Power Prism Make Up.

O.O

Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

Here’s some pictures from 2007-2011 (high school graduation-college graduation) that highlight my Harry Potter fandom.

1.) midnight movie release for OOtP, cosplaying as Tonks, 2007

2.) first attempts at ~photography~, 2008

3.) exclusive HP Exhibition cast members pre-screening movie release for HBP, at the Omnimax theater at Museum of Science and Insustry, 2009.

4.) last outdoor Quidditch match between cast members at MSI, 2009 (Matt, on the left, broke his nose!)

5.) photo c/o Chicago Sun-Times for their interview with me when I won the Harry Potter Uberfan contest, 2010

6.) HP Exhibition castmastes at the DH pt. 1 midnight screening, 2010 (we got to be on the local news!)

7.) Visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park with my contest winnings, 2011

8.) HP Exhibition castmastes at the DH pt. 2 midnight screening, 2011

It’s been a hell of a journey.

On making your own luck

Been striking out lately in the job hunt department.

Icing on the cake was a few days ago when I was told i had a job and a start date…only to be emailed back about an hour later saying it was actually meant for a different Ashley. woof.

So I’ve decided that I’m going to be chasing after one last opportunity before I tone it down and refocus my energy elsewhere.

Got in touch with a guy I know at the local library who works in childrens/teen services who said he’d put in a good word for me to take over his job, as he’s leaving to go back to school.

Fingers and toes crossed for this one to work out, because honestly, after all this time, this is the kind of job I’ve always been after - I just lost sight of it. Spreading a love of reading and education to kids and teens has always been the end goal, even with my work on FYUC.

So send me those good vibes!

From the Magazine archives—
In honor of author J.K. Rowling’s 49th birthday:

Harry Potter and the Ivory Tower

Potter scholar John Granger, AB’83, puts Rowling’s series on a shelf with Bram Stoker, Geoffrey Chaucer, Jane Austen, and other Great Books authors.

“Harry Potter didn’t just drop out of the sky,” Granger says. “People may be uncomfortable using the tools we use on William Shakespeare and Dante Alighieri on Joanne Rowling, but she’s writing in a tradition that goes back to the Middle Ages and stretches all the way up from Samuel Taylor Coleridge through C.S. Lewis.”

John Granger is the shit. I’m still honored and humbled that he read my BA on war and oppression themes in Potter series.
