Kindergarten Boyfriend

Now we’re all grown up and we know better
Now we recognize the way things are
Certain boys are just for kindergarten… certain girls are meant to be alone
But I believe that any dream worth having is a dream that should not have to end
So I’ll build a dream that I can live in and this time I’m never waking up

Martha Dunnstock Appreciation Post

So I’ve noticed a lot of appreciation posts on Tumblr, and I wanted to make one for Martha, because I think out of all the characters in the musical, Martha Dunnstock deserves a lot of appreciation. Martha is 100% herself all the time. She doesn’t care that her crush of 13 years thinks she’s weird. All she knows is that she might have a chance with him. She’s always faithful to Veronica, even when Veronica ditches her for the lipstick gespatcho. And even when she’s being called “Martha Dumptruck”, she takes it with a grain of salt. In her world, Martha is a queen of unicorns and rainbows and sunshine and happy endings. And even though she may be flawed, Martha knows that’s who she is. And she will always be proud of herself no matter who says what or what anyone thinks about her. Plus, she’s a total fangirl, with her My Little Pony collection and her memorization of The Princess Bride, Martha reminds me of what the average Tumblr girl should aspire to be.

“What can I say? I’m a sucker for happy endings.”
