"If you know me well, you can definitely confirm that the words, “I just want to dance” are heard at any given point of the day. Apparently, there was this day that I came home from pre-school and told my Mom, “I want to do ballet and dance on my toes.” Don’t know where I got this idea, maybe the teacher had introduced us to Thumbelina Ballerina. Not really sure. But the one thing I am sure of is that dancing is why I love music as much as I do and vice-versa, and there aren’t many things better than those two combined. At least in my book.
NY is for…

PS - if you have any super fun tips or places to visit, comment beneath!
Above White Noise:Matt Murdock/Foggy Nelson “Matt doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. He’s not a cliché. He knows what it looks like, a blind guy having a bat daemon, but- They are not a cliché.”
All Things Counter:Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes “‘You have the same daemon as Bucky,’ a boy with a freckled face marveled. His own daemon, a monkey, was sitting on his shoulder, clinging to his ginger hair. ‘That’s so cool.’ The soldier turned to face the boy, silent, and something about his face made the kid back away, rejoining his family, glancing back at him nervously. The soldier was not surprised. He looked at the hyena. To the soldier, his daemon looked nightmarish. Ugly. His sharp needle teeth were exposed, dangerous jaws parted in readiness to bite.”
Cross My Soul:Stiles Stilinski/Derek Hale “Sometime around mid summer, during the intervening weeks of baseball camp and recovering from baseball camp and the latest Minecraft update, Jinx hops up the plastic step stool to their bed and says, ‘Derek’s daemon won’t talk to me.’”
Down to the Bone:Matt Murdock/Foggy Nelson “Everyone always wants to know why his daemon isn’t a bat. As though being blind is all that there is to him, the center point of his character.”
The Insectivore:MCU Avengers lineup + Darcy Lewis “Two years before Jane hit a space alien with the Mystery Machine in the middle of the New Mexico desert, Darcy took a class on how to profile people’s daemons.”
Neala and sequels: Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter “In which Harry’s daemon settles and everyone but him is surprised.”
I’ve stopped being very outspoken on Twitter. It doesn’t help me, it doesn’t help my mind, and I don’t want to force my views on people. So I just post pictures of cats, that’s my thing – keeping it trivial, keeping it simple
