Bam! There it is. My 1,200+ follow forever. It’s not that exciting I don’t follow a lot of people. Though I do feel like I might have left out quite a few people so I might be adding names later on as I find more. But yeah, here it is ♥️
Wow, I can’t believe I actually have 2k followers! Thank you all so much for following me! Whether you’ve been following me from day one or just found me yesterday I really appreciate it! (I tried to get everyone in there but knowing me I probably missed a few so don’t feel bad if you aren’t on here. I still love you!)

But he’s got nothing on the amount of times female characters are posed that way compared to their male counterparts.
I read The Fault in Our Stars. Not because I’m excited for the movie, but because two of my very good friends here on tumblr have very different, very passionate, and very valid opinions on the book. And I was completely lost as to how I should react. I care about these two people very much and it broke my heart to see them at such odds. So yesterday I sat down and started to read it hoping that doing so would give me some informed context concerning their opinions. Having just finished it, here are my opinions…
