About me
I am a dreamer, a writer, a runner, a Girl Scout, a sister and an over-achiever. I am entranced by the power of words. I enjoy a challenge, travelling, questioning, and competing.

I am slightly obsessed with Superman, media representation, Girl Scouts, Supernatural, good books, women's studies, LOTR, Sherlock, rugby, super heroes, dark and evil characters, and running. That is mostly what I blog about. I am a Slytherin and on the Myers-Briggs Personality Scale, I'm an INTJ.

i think there is no greater dark magic than the cha-cha slide

you will never get a group of people obeying every command so quickly as you will by putting on that song.

every previous conversation grinds to a halt as everyone goes to the left and then takes it back now y’all

A best friend is someone you can text at 3:30 in the afternoon to ask if you can borrow a condom and they meet you outside ten minutes later with said condom no questions asked.


Representation in the media is so narrow that I’m not really sure how ANYONE feels adequately represented. Sure, I may be a cisgendered, able-bodied, able-minded, white, Christian, American, but:

My sister has Down Syndrome
I have more gay male friends than straight ones
My priest is a black French man
I am acquainted with two transsexuals
Some of my closest friends are Muslim, Jewish, or Wiccan
My boss is African American (and her boss is Hispanic)
My rugby team consists of straights, lesbians, bis, and aces
My president is bi-racial
Most of my friends at church are deaf

It’s gotten to the point where even though everyone LOOKS like me in the media, I find it hard to identify with the characters.

White, straight, WASP, and Cis is not the “default” and if it doesn’t creep you out a bit to see it portrayed that way, I think you probably need to get out more.

sexual identity is who you go to bed with

gender identity is who you go to bed as


"People want the rugged authenticity of being different without actually being punished for it — and I understand why they do it. I recognize the insecurity. Just a decade ago, my peers were flinging words like “terrorist” and “faggot” to me in the halls of our high school. Now I’m “trendy” and “fierce.” Either assessment rings lonely and desperate. How they are tremendously afraid of being insignificant. How the fantasy of race that they have projected on my body makes me have some mystic power they are jealous of. They are afraid of boring. They are afraid of being nothing. They are in a constant state of falling — grasping for all of the bindis, beards, dashikis, gauges that they hold on to to feel relevant. And what hurts the most is that when they do it, it magically becomes beautiful. It becomes a beard worth $8,500 and not a beard worth five bullets. When the white body wears our scars, they finally become beautiful.

Every brown boy has a story about the hair. Pluck it out of him. He’s used to it."

Going to a country where the standard greeting and response is different is the most confusing thing ever and i don't like it

British Person: Hey, You alright?
Me: Not much, you?
...
Me: Hey, What's up?
British Person: Yeah, you?
