Self-Doubt, Anxiety and Rejection

My head feels like a mess right now. 

My whole body doesn't know quite what to do and I feel like I have a billion different things in my head right now but I have no idea what to do. 

Part of me wants to say that I feel numb because I kind of do but at the same time I am feeling a million different feelings that I kind of don't know what to do. 

I'm in a shock kind of, my body just doesn't know what to do. Run? Hide? Fight the world?

But nothing?

I mean I guess not quite nothing I'm writing this so that's something. 

All of this started because I've had a rough couple of days.

On the outside my life seems fine, I've been reproductive, have been doing work, even today, I have tried to put on a nice front but inside it feels like I am collapsing under the weight. I think a part of me won't let me stop. I know that if I don't continue something might make me stop. It's like I am trying to run away but I'm not. 

This post is clearly me trying to get through that so here is me trying...

I don't know if I will ever post this but I really want to because I hope someone will feel the same. 

My whole life feels like it is changing. It will change in July, yes, but it feels like I need to make those decisions now. 

Decisions that I do not feel wholly ready to make. 

I know that I want to apply to do a Masters but every day I question this reason. I want to do it so I can continue in a field a love and love to learn about not for something else that doesn't give me all the enjoyment that I need for it. 

I just made a tough decision. Something that my God I hope I stand by because I feel like I need to make a stand. Yes, one of the reasons that it because I had self-doubt and I think that with anything like this you have self-doubt but I think that the other reasons like because I hate being self-doubted when I feel it myself. 

This is also because I feel like I need distance and if this was much later then I could feel different but right now this is what I feel and I want to be true to that. I know that my decision shouldn't have consequences and that makes me happy because I hope they succeed. I really do. 

Now for the anxiety, all of this is because I have anxiety over myself and maybe a little anxiety is good because I feel like that decision is going to make me so much happier in the long run. 

If I do a Masters, then I can focus on the things that I truly love. My degree. This blog. My writing. My future.

I have done everything that I want to and I have nowhere that I need to go which makes me so happy that I finally can do. 

So the rejection. I do have this feeling of rejection for my Masters, like when you apply for everything. But I feel like everything happens for a reason and I am happy with that and I feel like I made the decision to prevent rejection which will make me so much better in the future. 

The topic of rejection and social media is definitely something that I want to cover in the future but I think that this is enough for now because I don't feel like any of this makes sense which is fine because it helped me. 

See you soon, 

Amy

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female repres
