the freshmen - jay brannan

"23 years ago today, a boy named Harry Potter boarded the Hogwarts Express. 23 years ago today, Ron Weasley asked if he could sit in Harry’s compartment. 23 years ago today, Hermione Granger asked they if they saw Neville’s toad. 23 years ago today, Harry, Ron, and Hermione were sorted into Gryffindor. 23 years ago today, the golden trio met."

Some friendships just start; no matter how long you and another person have been friends or how close you and this said person are, you can (and will) never be able to recall that spark of ignition.

But then there are some rare moments. Rare timeless moments that before they’re even over you just know what the future lies. And in these moments, great friendships are forged.

Well if you can’t get what you love

If you can’t be what you want
You learn to be the things you’re not
If you can’t get what you need
You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
