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.

Be your own hero; it's cheaper than a movie ticket

"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."
- ― Mark Twain (via psych-quotes)


I’ve been everything.

I’ve been the person who shuts the door, alone in their room, crying at 2 AM instead of sleeping; faking a smile, barely containing myself during the day; dragging on and on and on.

I’ve been the psychologist; I’ve listened to friends cry on the phone, I know that she cuts, that he hates himself, that she lost her mother when she was 3. I see the people’s pain, but I can’t fix it.

I’ve been a success; the person who works their ass off to reach goals, the person who has a drive.

I’ve been known as the person who loves life; who laughs louder than anyone else, who laughs at their own jokes for 20 minutes, who can put a smile on someone’s face.

I have made mistakes, I’ve done things I will always regret. I’ve hurt others.

I have been forgiven and I have forgiven. I have let go of the hardest events in my life; I have moved on and felt free.

I have loved others, been loved; I see the beauty in each person. I see the sparkle in each persons’ beautiful eyes. I’ve watched passion in others, learned to be passionate.

I have hated myself.
But I have also loved myself.

And at the end of the day, I’ve learned. I’ve learned that I’m a failure, I’m a success, I’m sad, I’m incredibly happy, I’m a gift, I have flaws, I am beautiful, I have ugliness inside.
But you know what? That’s called life.

And I couldn’t ask for anything better.

i love people responding to their pets’ noises with ‘i know’

"This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world."

"It was just the way it would be on any normal day. Sometimes you think. Sometimes you don’t. Sometimes you worry about passports, dangers, pains, relatives and loved ones, and at other times your steps are light and you sing songs in the desert. Sometimes it is boring. And sometimes you feel at peace."
