You would have me hang a Baroque oil painting of myself like I’m a North Korean dictator. What, no ornate gold frame? Why am I not astride my noble steed, clad in armor?
…We could add a horse?

anonymous asked:

what are some of the works by e.e. cummings that you like better?

i’ve been waiting for this question my entire life. (no, i’m kidding. but i’m extremely pleased to answer.) i have a beloved copy of selected poems from e.e. cummings at home with a … substantial amount of bookmarks. it’s sort of fluid, because i tend to love different poems of his in different times but some of my favourites as of now are:

after five 
be unto love as rain is unto colour
consider O
i like my body when it is with your
i will wade out
if i learned darkness from our searched world
if I should sleep with a lady called death
it is funny, you will be dead some day
love’s function is to fabricate unknownness
my mind is
nearer: breath of my breath
o sweet spontaneous
pity this busy monster, manunkind
since feeling is first
suppose
will suddenly trees leap from winter and will

some of them are quite ethereal, some deeply witty and slightly disturbing, all of them are captivating––and if you’d like to hear my thoughts on any of them in particular, i’d love to elaborate!

Guess who got asked to prom! BY A STRAIGHT GUY (Army pants). he’s my best friend, and a real man given the fact he has the guts to fulfill my gay student council dream of always helping out planning dances, and never getting asked. I couldn’t ask for a better person in my life. 

Thank you Jacob can’t wait for May 2nd!

TBH mon el being killed off wouldn’t be good enough. It’s not as simple as just getting rid of him and then likely playing on the grief that Kara would show in losing him. What I want, and what would be the best way to end the karahell dynamic, would be for Kara to wake up and recognize that their relationship is not right, that he is not healthy for her. I want to see her realize this and chose to move on to better things, not to move on out of necessity. No I don’t like mon el, but simply shipping him off is not the right answer to this terrible dynamic they’ve built. We need young people to see that they can chose a better life for themselves, that they don’t have to wait for the other person to break their heart before they realize they could have something better.

Write Like No One Will Read It


For the last few days, I’ve given myself some “time off” writing to get to some projects that are just for me, an essay and a short story I doubt I will ever publish but that I wanted to write because it was a chance for me to imagine a future I’d really like to see come to pass. And it has been really productive. One day I wrote about 7,000 words before noon. And I realized it was precisely because I was writing for myself that I was so productive.


When people ask me how to be more productive, they expect me to tell them about some special writing system I have or ways to organize your life better so that you use those fifteen minutes at the doctor’s waiting. I haven’t found that to be the way to become more productive. On the contrary, more pressure often does the reverse.

This is why some writers only write one book. It’s why the second book is so difficult for most of us (unless you’ve already got it written before the first one comes out and the pressure really starts). It’s why writers sometimes take decades between books. (Yes, I know it could be quality, too, but I suspect it’s fear.)

If you can figure out some trick to convince your mind that no one will ever read your book, that it’s just for you, that there’s no deadline, no fear of reviews, no worries about if it’s good enough, trust me, you will be amazed at the creativity that pours out of you.

Write like you’re a kid again.

Write like it’s a crime.

Write like it’s your journal.

Write like you’ve never been published.

Write like no one ever told you about comma splices.

Write like it’s your favorite decadent treat.

Write like it’s breath.

And it will be.

We’re all sinking in the same boat here. We’re all bored and desperate and waiting for something to happen. Waiting for life to get better. Waiting for things to change. Waiting for that one person to finally notice us. We’re all waiting. But we also need to realize that we all have the power to make those changes for ourselves.

International Women’s Day 2017
Journée Internationale de la Femme

Waiting your time, dreaming of a better life
Waiting your time, you’re more than just a wife
You don’t want to do what your mother has done
She has done
This is your life, this new life has begun
It’s your day - a woman’s day
It’s your day - a woman’s day
