Something I plan on learning: I’d like to learn how to grill things without ruining them, i’d like to learn to be more versed in radical feminism and i’d like to learn to not be so shy about introducing myself to people both online and in real life .
A piece of advice for all my followers: Do not give a minute of your time to unworthy people. Surround yourself with wise and worthy women. Don’t be afraid to of fucking things up for yourself or making bad decisions, because even if you do, you can still be happy and be proud of who you are.
You have to listen to this song: Aguas de Marco” by Elis Regina. The most beautiful song in the world.
My blog(s): Just this one. My original intention was to just have it be a happy place of calming images to cool myself down after reading about things that upset but lately its been going in another direction, and i’m okay with that.

1.) If you became ruler of the world what would your first order of business be? Jeesh. So many possibilities. If I could only choose one thing to do immediately I think i’d want to do something about child exploitation but too overwhelmed to think of concrete action.

2.) What’s your main hobby?
I like like cooking a lot when it’s not so hot outside…right now I guess gardening because it’s so hot in my apartment.

3.) A moment that made you happy recently?
A really cute little kid on my street ran halfway down the street then said “hi!” and ran away again.

4.) What do you major in or are planning to major in and why?
I’m an English major for complicated reasons involving my current school not accepting transfer credits and needing to graduate in a timely fashion due to scholarship constraints. Prior to that (and before a really long interruption in my college education) I was double majoring in Philosophy and Biology. I want to teach middle school English :)

5.) Favorite book(s)?
"Wide Sargasso Sea" by Jean Rhys, anything by Virginia Woolf, Isabel Allende, lots of others.

6.) Any good movies or tv shows that you recommend? Lately really into Xena and also dumb action movies where a lot of things get destroyed and blown up.

7.) Women dead or alive that do you admire and why?Ex: Harriet Tubman,your mom,etc.Up to 3. Virginia Woolf, Sojourner Truth, rad fems of tumblr

8.) What’s a phase you went through that you now laugh at remembering?jfdks didn’t know how to word that well There was a phase in middle school when I was reading a lot of cosmo and read that it was seductive to eat lollipops  or some shit like that and I remember trying to seductively eat a lollipop at some middle school party.

9.) Any spooky/supernatural stories that happened to you? Once I was peeing behind an abandoned gas station somewhere in Texas and I saw a chupacabra but on further googling probably just a wolf with bad mange.

10.) Fav. holiday and your fav. way of spending it? I like cooking and eating and being thankful so I like Thanksgiving for those reasons.

  • A Colin Morgan Appreciation Post (1/?)

He is full of enthusiasm for everything. Everything is great, everything is nice, everything is fantastic all the time and sometimes I think: ‘Right, I could do a bit of a pep up here’ and Colin's there sort of just going: 'No, everything is great' and I go: 'Alright yeah, everything is fine'. - Bradley James

I’ve learnt many years ago not to try to live up to Colin Morgan - there’s no point, he is on a level that is far beyond the rest of us, so it’s better just to have him as your goal and silently plod along behind him!” - Katie McGrath

One of the most hardworking, welcoming people I’ve ever met. I think one of the best actors I’ve ever worked with. I would say that the reason the show is as successful — a major part of that is because of him. He was always on there and welcomed everyone to the set even if they’re there for one scene or for a few years.He would just always give you so much. If you had a scene with Colin you would be better, I think. He’s genuinely one of the nicest people. He loves acting so much and so committed. He gave his life over for the eight months we filmed. He’s someone I am in awe of. I’d like to be a bit more like him. - Rupert Young

I told Colin Morgan I would direct him in anything he chooses. Colin is going to be a very big name and Shine (the company who did Merlin) were so lucky to get him. He’s a brilliant actor and so professional…so hard-working and a really nice guy. - Richard Wilson

He is the first guy on set and the last guy on set for actually everyday. I don’t envy him his workload. Merlin is the lead in the show in many ways and he is in a huge amount of it. - co-creator Julian Murphy

No matter how tired he is whether he is up a hill on a horse, whether he is in the water, whether he is in a castle having to fight a green screen monster, pretending a monster in front of a green screen, no matter what we throw to him he always gives a 100%. - co-creator Johnny Capps

Favourite People - Colin Morgan

What I remember most about my encounter with Colin Morgan is how articulate and thoughtful he is. Does his star burn brighter because it has been fashioned out of adversity?  Absolutely. All I do know is that he is smart enough to know that hard work and sheer determination has catapulted him into a position of extraordinary privilege and opportunity. So far he’s made some very interesting choices outside Merlin, and he has deftly avoided being typecast.
