The Lion King was my favorite movie growing up. I used to watch it almost every day. My sister and I knew the whole script by heart and could sing all the songs. I remember being told to write in a journal in school. The journals were never collected or graded. We just had to be writing. I would just write out my favorite scenes from The Lion King word by word and learned nothing about self expression.

Yeah I know Rafiki never actually said that quote, but it was a meme a while back and you gotta love dank memes.



  1. Is there any way that I can get this pattern? I saw it on Pinterest and fell in love with it. I cannot transfer it to a email. Any help would be appreciated.


    • Sorry about that. This post is so old and I’m a little embarrassed that I didn’t notice that I didn’t post a link to the PDF file here. It’s at the end of the first paragraph. You can download it now and then put it in your email as an attachment.
