I love too many things. Following me will probably annoy you, so I don't recommend it.
I'm batshit and I have an unhealthy fixation on vampires (NOT the sparkly ones), Blair Waldorf's transformative power over my life, Cersei Lannister and her drinking game invention talent, the Troll of Winterfell - Sansa Stark, teens who are wolves (or Derek Hale), incestuous thousand year old vampires who originated their species, the rebels who took down the Capitol, fallen angels masquerading as Shadowhunters, fashion as performance and also as a convenient way to not be naked, dancing like a nerd, being a nerd, shiny things (that aren't vampires), and men I would like to rub myself on.
Fair warning. ;-)

If you could go anywhere in the world right now would it be to a “where” or to a “who”?

I was not prepared for this question

A who. Hands down. No question. 

I can’t keep it all in… turned 4 today!

A huge THANK YOU to all of you people who, against my prior warnings, still follow me. I still don’t know what you’re doing here, but I appreciate it all the same.

Netflix Queue: *has almost 200 listings*

Me: I don't have anything to watch.

Me: *scrolls through Netflix' suggestions before giving up and just watching Daria again on Hulu*

Mom (who is a sixth grade teacher): I can't just give them busy work. We have to teach the Constitution next week.

Me: Just show them National Treasure.....oh wait. That's the Declaration of Independence.

"I hate Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel and all the other Princesses like them. They are terrible role-models for young girls (and even for boys). Ariel especially upsets me. I understand the love and fascination for something unlike what you know (in her case, humans). But she is teaching young children to give up their special abilities - things that help define who they are - for "true love." It sickens me, because I’ve watched it happen and am currently watching it unfold again in reality."

Seriously though, are you guys watching the movies?
I don’t see how Cinderella and Snow White are bad role models (Aurora’s barely even in her own story, so we’ll leave her out). But really, characters like Cinderella and Snow White were genuinely kind; I don’t see how those are qualities that shouldn’t be emulated by boys or girls. And I may be defensive of Cinderella especially since I was in a similar toxic relationship, but her keeping her spirits up while under the abuse of her step-family is a valiant quality. And even Snow White, who despite the hardship that she’d gone through was still charitable and kind.
And we come to Ariel. Ariel gets a lot of flack fro giving up her underwater kingdom and tail to be with Eric on the surface. I could understand that except for one detail in the movie: her father came into her private space and destroyed all her things. Not to mention that she’s manipulated by the eels and Ursula into taking the deal. It’s not like all of a sudden she just says “screw it” and up and leaves. Not to mention at the end, it’s Triton who gives her her legs and lets her be with Eric: if anything, you could say the film is about parents letting go of their children.
And if it’s happening in reality, so what? People have given up things for love for centuries; it’s not just because they’ve seen The Little Mermaid. It is sad, but it is their decision: they’re the ones who deal with the consequences. You can’t blame the movie for people acting on their feelings, not matter how illogical or wasteful it seems.

PEOPLE WHO REDUCE ARIEL TO “GIRL WHO GAVE UP HER VOICE FOR A MAN” MAKE ME WANT TO STAB THEM IN THE NECK WITH AN ICE PICK.
*sips some wine*
BEFORE before BeFoRe (prior to) Ariel ever saw the underside of Eric’s stupid boat SHE WAS SINGING HER THEME SONG! Previously on the Little Mermaid, Ariel, youngest daughter of Triton, was singing “when’s it my turn?” She wasn’t in love with Eric, she was in love with not being cooped up and controlled and unable to explore something that seemed super fucking awesome to her. OMG. How difficult is this to understand? Super difficult? Well fuck you then. Go watch Frozen since you need shit spoon fed to you.
Also, Eric is basically the best fucking Disney prince in the history of those goddamn douchebags. He was actually IN LOVE with Ariel. He might have been susceptible to Ursula/Vanessa’s magic trickery, but let me remind you that when shit hit the fan and all the able to breathe underwater people disappeared, this dude went to war for Ariel, holding his breath like a kid at summer camp so he could harpoon the freaky squid woman who took his girl. Shit.

(Also Cinderella was disinherited and abused for her entire life so if the one time the poor thing got to go to a party and it ended up getting her out of that fuckshit is a harmful story for children then I don’t even know. Like….what?! “Little girls, don’t use any avenue to escape your abusers. Only use these preapproved ones so you don’t send the wrong message about feminism.” And Aurora was also sick of being cooped up her whole life and then she met a nice guy by a pond and they danced to Tchaikovsky and it was cute. Not seeing the problem.)

I just spilled pickle juice on my sheets and haven’t yet decided if that’s reason enough to change them.

I am so good at being an adult. So freaking good. Le sigh.

I’m caught up on Teen Wolf now. And all I can say is “Bad Peter! Naughty werewolf!” and “Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” about Kate Argent. Does anyone know why she’s even on this show?

If you don’t jiggle your ass to the beat in that one part of Anaconda, you’re missing out.

Sometimes you just have to have a mini dance party all alone in your room.
And sometimes you’re dancing to a song you’re making up as you go along.

The alarm telling me to go to sleep is going off in 15 minutes and I am definitely going to ignore it again like I have all month. 

Le sigh

I love birthday emails from stores.
