The 51st State

The relief traffic map above indicates approximate average density of traffic on the interstate highway system - a dense linear territory between city, state, and countryside. 

“Fed by the prosperity of the last decade, the 46,567-mile network of limited-access roads that make up the Interstate System is a linear economy-on-wheels, a distinct and self-sustaining 51st state, in a sense, that generates life and commerce …”

I’ve wanted a pen pal for a while now, because I’d like to branch out, learn about other places, and also have something to look forward to. Some of my hobbies include baking, planning/managing events, and watching netflix(does that count as a hobby?). I also like dogs, plants, Lana Del Rey, coffee, cake decorating, makeup, mythology, volunteering, and painting(watercolor, but I’m not good at it). I’d really love to have a pen pal who shares some of my interests and doesn’t mind sending or receiving huge snail mail letters/packages.

Preferences: I’d prefer someone 15 or 16, and I’d prefer female but that I’m not too concerned with.

No Trump
No KKK
No Fascist USA

PLEASE

Don’t stay silent while they take away or limit your reproductive rights.

Don’t stay silent while they harass immigrants.

Don’t stay silent while they belittle your sexual orientation or your gender.

Don’t stay silent while they wreck our school systems.

Don’t stay silent while they build a fortune off of our misfortune.


Get up, stand up. Call your representative. Protest. Be vocal, be loud. Give em hell kids.

*my nun friend to me* “I couldn’t vote for Hillary. She’s for abortion!” *Me* “Let’s be honest. How many ‘mistakes’ do you think Trump has paid for? More than Hillary ever has, I bet. Think about it, for a second.”

“You don’t know everything.”

“Of course I don’t. But I know how men work. Especially when they’re rich and famous and brag on Howard Stern about all the sex they constantly have. And no Trump supporter can ever look anyone in the eye and claim he never arranged one on the side, can they?”
