film reads

Age: 18
Country: England

Hi, I’m about to move onto a new stage in my life (University!) and would really like someone to talk or write to about my excitement and fears. I am planning to study English Literature, so if you have an interest in reading, that would be ideal as books are what I’m going to live and breathe for the next three years. However, equally I have a big interest in Film, I run my schools European Film Club and work part time in an independent cinema. I am into more art house films, but also have a soft spot for crappy action. While horror isn’t my thing, my little sister is all over it, so I can discuss that as well.
I’m quite scared about moving away from my sister and step-brother who are my best friends, and I think building connections with new people will really help in this new transition.
I am really lucky to have an eccentric mother, and so am really widely travelled for my age. I have visited mostly European countries, such as France, Germany, Greece, Sweden and Russia, but also been to New York and Ontario, Canada. However, when you’re a tourist you don’t get a very good feel for the culture, just the sights. I would love to learn about other lifestyles, whether it’s your religion, traditions or anything else.

Preferences: I’m not very particular with age ranges, however 14-23 ish would be preferable. I think it would be difficult to get to know someone without common life experience. Unfortunately, despite my best attempts I only speak English, so that would be important for a pen pal. However, I do have some embarrassing GCSEs in German and Spanish, so I am willing to sharpen my rusty skills if you would like.

top 10 favorite events or periods in history (in no particular order)

You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, and the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, breath of the fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single second of every day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and the colors fill your mind until there is nothing left to do but explode, There are no wrong answer. Inspiration is everything. Sit back, relax, and take it all in.

get to know me (2/10} favorite animated films ☰ the last unicorn (1982)

I am a little afraid to go home. I have been mortal, and some part of me is mortal yet. I am no longer like the others, for no unicorn was ever born who could regret, but I now I do. I regret.

“But here, condensed into one 10-minute span, I recognized the sinking feeling of being betrayed by a white woman you’ve stanned for, loved, liked, or even simply been mildly okay with. It’s that feeling when you find out that, after enjoying her in Easy A and finding her bubbly personality lovable, Emma Stone was fine with playing an Asian woman in Aloha. Maybe you went through it with Scarlett Johansson when you found out that she’d accepted the lead role in Ghost in the Shell, an adaptation of a Japanese anime series. It’s the betrayal you feel the first time you realize that women who are labeled pop-culture feminist icons, like Tina Fey, are perfectly fine with gunning for blackface laughs at your expense, or blaming your idols for white girls’ lack of self-esteem. (Beyoncé is many things, but she is not the reason you hate your body.)

For some, it’s the 53 percent of white women who voted for Trump, or finding out that the leader of your local NAACP chapter is literally a white woman in disguise. For others it’s finding out that Taylor Swift’s been coasting on America’s fear of black men for years. I feel it every time I realize there’s a white women on my Twitter timeline who will tweet in earnest for Planned Parenthood while sparing only a perfunctory tweet for Black Lives Matter or the Standing Rock Sioux.

The thought that white people may see you as no more than a body for use or a culture from which you can pick and choose what you like while discarding the rest and those who invented it? The idea that a white woman you see as your potential friend or ally will eventually prove to be looking out for her own best interests over yours or the greater good? These are concepts that the people of color watching this film are intimately familiar with.

White women have always played, and continue to play, a large part in upholding the supremacy. They have not held the best interests of people of color.”
