Arrival (2016)

Directed by Denis Villeneuve

Cinematography by Bradford Young

Name: Jenni

Age: 20

Location: Germany

Languages: German, English, basic French, some Italian and I’m starting to learn Finnish next month. I’ve also just started teaching myself some Swedish.

I’m looking for some people who can keep up with my weirdness (most people I know sadly can’t). I live and breathe for travelling, music, books and cats. My favourite bands are The Smiths, Guns N’ Roses, Beartooth, Nirvana and Our Last Night, but I’m listening to everything that makes me feel anything at all. I’m into science fiction and dystopias (I’ll always love my teacher for forcing Brave New World on me). Also, music festivals and concerts, guys! I love lots of thing and I’d like to hear what you like.

In August, I’m going to move to Finland for six months, so if you live there, contact me! :) I’d like to meet new people from all over the world though. Having meaningful conversations or just a good laugh is always amazing. Everything above 16 y/o is fine by me. I’m so looking forward hearing from you! :)

Easter/Spring-ish Headcanon 1/5

It’s the Spring Fling Festival! A festival hosted in lkemen Academy! Being an easter theme, kids all around town are welcomed to come over to enjoy the games and events the school’s hosting. From their own egg hunt and café (plus a huge snack table filled with sweets ). Come to Ikemen Academy to enjoy the beauty of spring and boys!

Izumi (Nerd Senpai): The quiet one in the family, always sits in one corner of a room and reads the whole time. The only time he isn’t doing any reading is when they are eating. But, then again, he is still a bit shy even when’s he’s with people that has known him for his whole life. (Like aunts and uncles he hasn’t seen in years. “I remember the old days when you were in diapers!” “Who the fuck are you???”) Uncles would be the ones pushing him to talk more while his aunts are at his throat, asking about his love life or about him getting a girlfriend (especially since he’s at that age). They would say that if he keeps his nose buried in his many pile of books, he would never get a girlfriend. BUT, WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW is that the local Kouhai bookstore is far more interesting than the girls his family would always force him to interact or flirt with.

What Bonobos Can Teach Us

Bonobos share 98.7% of our DNA. Physically, they resemble chimpanzees. But something remarkable sets them apart from their primate cousins, making them an altogether different animal. Bonobos live in almost complete absence of violence; work cooperatively toward shared goals; foster a society that values equality; and engage in prolific casual sex. Could these gentle, promiscuous creatures hold the key to a world without war? Vanessa Woods, author of Bonobo Handshake, discusses what we might learn from our evolutionary relatives with anthropologist Brian Hare and NPR RadioLab’s Jad Abumrad.

Walkinredinstead challenge day five: stereotypes

I was definitely the stereotypical nerdy autistic kid, and I am now more or less close to the stereotypical autistic STEM student. And I am totally fine with that.

I love the nerd culture! I love science and sci-fi. I played with a toy microscope and toy chem kit as a kid. I spent my teenage years reading classic sci-fi along with popular science books, going to science festivals and getting better at skepticism and critical thinking. Now I’m at uni studying biology, and I have a real microscope and a real chemical lab to use, and I’m reading complicated textbooks and actual research papers. And it’s a huge part of my life.

I relate to that stereotype so much that I can’t help but see myself in every such character in media, no matter how badly represented. I even love Big Bang Theory. I just always felt like nerd culture was a place where I could be safe, and it was true. I know not all autistics are nerds and geeks, but I am and it’s okay. I’m allowed to love what I love.

So what I want to say is, stereotypes can be incredibly harmful, but you aren’t doing any harm by having stereotypical traits. You are you! It’s not something you can change and you shouldn’t try. Yes, some of us are just like those stereotypes. People are different. And that’s a good thing.
