Brain Sprinkles 44

Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.

Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Book
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I didn’t plan on discussing the final Harry Potter book until I finished it, but with nothing else new to cover this week, I suppose I’ll write about it now. I started The Deathly Hallows a couple weeks ago after finally finishing The Half-Blood Prince, and the reason it’s taken me almost a year to get through seven books is because I feel like they’re progressively getting worse. As I’ve stated before, Rowling’s writing style is annoying at best and intolerable at worst, but I’ve stuck with the series mainly due to its huge influence on pop culture and all the good I’ve heard about the series. Now, with The Deathly Hallows, I’m nearly halfway through the book and hardly anything has happened. Harry and Hermione are lost in the woods, as they’ve been for a while, and nothing’s really going on. The book has stagnated, and I find myself bored. I’ll definitely finish the the series, but I had higher hopes for such a revered and beloved franchise.
