my day at degrassi

10

happy international women’s day! (march 8th)

“when i wrote that song, i didn’t even call myself a feminist yet. but i had seen first-hand how women are treated differently. for me, it was just small stuff like catcalls at shows. but the harassment that i’ve gotten lately, it all comes from the same thing. it’s people saying ‘i’m allowed to do this to her because she’s just a girl’. words like ‘slut’ and ‘rape’, they matter. they make us feel devalued and threatened. they choose words that inflict pain, and then they tell us it’s our fault for getting upset about it.”

the way degrassi portrayed esme’s mental illness was so realistic imo the extreme highs and lows and the all consuming mania and then her final break in the end…mental illness is messy and messier if you don’t/can’t get help and i think the show did a good job of that with esme. that being said, i’m so so so happy she’s finally getting help and i hope she’s in s5 because i need to know she’s doing better.

so today i

saw eric osborne and ehren kassam eating at a place i was getting lunch at but then i accidentally spilled half a glass of water onto my lap and then sat there unsure of what to even do about me or my water situation or even any slim possibly of me saying hi.. until they both eventually left the restaurant

so of course this is how MY one and only degrassi cast encounter would go 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️

400+ Follow Forever

So, today some crazy shit happend that yall will never believe.  I hit 400 followers (how the fuck did that happen??) and decided to celebrate with giving MASSIVE thanks to all of my awesome followers/mutuals/people that i like to stalk.  I honestly never thought i would hit 100 followers, so a number like this blows my fucking mind.  I can’t thank all of you enough for putting up with me for two years!  This thing is so massive that I had to put it under a fancy keep reading sign (professional).  So, whithout further adieu, I present to you my first follow forever.

[The day of my Degrassi audition] was a real pivotal day in my life, because it was the first audition I went on – and that’s already like a monumental thing – but it was also the day that I finally got accepted by these really cool Jewish kids at school. And they were finally like, ‘Yo, come over.’ This kid Daniel Pearlman… he called me over to his house, and I had this really tug-of-war moment where I actually did something that I probably shouldn’t have done. It starts with a W and ends with eed. And we did it out of a starts-with-a-B-ends-with-ong.

Drake was a little paranoid during his Degrassi audition, and if you’re good at spelling you’ll be able to figure out why.
