  • Harry Potter is my favorite fantasy book series and some of my favorite movies. I think that the way you claimed Harry is rude is false. Yes, he does have his moments.

  • Emery commented on the post, Art

    This is a cool perspective Tara. I like how you think about all different things and what people might consider art. I think that art is something created by someone that shows and style that they want to represent.
