I tag tbirdatmywindow! Just cause! Whenever you see this T, fill it out and it’ll make me smile!! :)

tbirdatmywindow replied to your post: also on the right and left hand thing- a lot of teachers actually make kids write with their right hand so Sarah could be ambidexterous or right handed because of her schooling and how it was trained into her whereas Helena was never taught to write properly so she would write with what she thought was natural…just a thinking :)

interesting, although i would expect helena to be the one trained out of left-handedness if she spent time in a convent. do we actually know how long she was there before being found?

I want to say she was eight though I’m pretty sure I’m pulling that figure out of my ass. But yeah, it would make more sense for Helena to have been forced to write with her right hand. I like the mirror twin explanation more, but that’s just me. 

ALSO TEE YOU’RE INTO ORPHAN BLACK WHAT I DIDN’T KNOW THAT

So I was in a really shitty mood yesterday going to sleep, for lots of reasons, but then I woke up this morning to well wishes from the lovely Tee, a step-by-step morning wake-up guide from my best friend (complete with background music to listen to while completing the steps), and an email from the head of the Women’s Studies department calling me wonderful

Today is gonna be great, everyone.

I hope you DO come on strong. Too many people come on weakly. All those things you listed are just labels, and they don’t really mean anything. YOU bring meaning to them with your personality and your thoughts and feelings and everything that makes you you. And if I were meeting someone as awesome as you are, I would expect all that amazingness to overpower me- it should. And I’d be grateful to know up front exactly how great you are. 

Ahh that is…that’s SO lovely :) Thanks heaps for taking the time to tell me such pretty things! I hope you get some really positive karma in return.
