Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 9 - Battle of The Bastards (Sansa is pregnant)

First of all, this review is not spoiler free. This review is a fucking spoilerdom! Proceed with caution.



Anyway, have been reading a lot of people come up with theories that Sansa Stark is pregnant and all but after last Sunday's episode, I have come to the conclusion that she is. I might be wrong but who cares. Everyone is giving predictions and ambigious lines so here I am offering my 2 cents.

First of all, we started thinking Sansa is pregnant because she said " I can still feel what he did, in my body, standing here, right now." during her speech to Littlefinger.

Now, we have Ramsay telling her that she could never kill him because he's part of her now. This is the part where everyone surmises that he was referring to his child.

However, what she answered after that was the one that confirms it for me.

Your words will disappear.
Your house will disappear.
Your name will disappear.
All memory of you will disappear.

This quote leads me to think that she is referring to their child. Which she will name as a Stark and his child will never know the name Bolton and will never know Ramsay. His house will disasppear as there will be no more heir and his words will disappear because no one will ever remember him.

Success stories

Success to many is one big step and one big opportunity given or provided at the right time. That is entirely false.


Success is the culmination of years of hard work and preparation. Years of slogging it out there and making yourself known. Success is all about that 10,000 hours you put before that big opportunity. 

I am not successful and at the age of 33 this year I wonder whether it's too late. A lot of people who are younger than me are already successful. That's what I see through social media and the news. The truth couldn't be farther from that. Everyday we hear about the success stories but not the mundane ones, not the ones where people fail. We are not tuned for storytelling about failures and mediocre achievements. 

It is true, we are a generation of youngsters who want to achieve something without putting in the hard work. We feel we are owed these achievements because we are promised greatness since young. We forget we grow up with people who work hard for the promises they made to us. They were not brought up with promises but they promised us everything because they want us to be better than them. 

We were brought up to believe that studying hard ensures success. We forget that studying is just a small part of our life. We were not taught finances, marketing, management and the benefits of hard work. We have the rest of our lives to make not something wildly successful but to try our best in whatever that was given to us. To work hard in achieving something and I've always believed that if you know what you want and everything you do is in the purpose of achieving that... you will either get it or die trying.
