Happy International Woman’s Day!
I want to celebrate the ladies who are forgotten by the world. I’ll be doing 2 more sets to celebrate all the amazing ladies in fiction!
I want to celebrate women of color, the LGBTQ* ladies, the physically disabled ladies, the ladies suffering mental illness, the plus sized ladies, the ladies who give everything to others and have huge hearts, the ladies who love ladies romantically or platonically, this is the for ladies who are battling sickness or spend their days in hospitals, the ladies who don’t fit into little bubbles… and the ladies like me and like so many others! I want to give love to each and everyone of you.
This is for the ladies who are made to feel bad because we’re supposed to look and be a certain way… we are wonderful and perfect! Today is our day.
Pass on some love to the ladies in your life as you go about your day! Let’s celebrate lady friendships! Let’s celebrate all the wonderful ladies today!

In 9th grade I believe the look I was going for was punk rock fairy (or something??? we just don’t know) but one day I was wearing a flowy hot pink skirt with a white top and old black ballet slippers and a teacher (who would end up being my math teacher two years later) told me she always saw me around campus and that she loved my style and individuality and tbh after that I never regretted any of my weird clothing choices and still don’t
NO WAY. The middle book is one that my grandma had as a set when I was a kid, and it was the first thing I read Grimm fairy tales out of! I’m so glad I know what it’s called so I can hunt one down!

"Do you remember the most frightened you’ve ever been?"
"When I was 21 and I found out my girlfriend was pregnant."
"How’d things turn out?"
"Pretty damn well."
Someone called street parking in Los Angeles their version of the Hunger Games and omg, it’s true.
Once you sit there and do the math of all the times on the five or six signs on each telephone pole and find out that you CAN park in that portion of that street at that time on that day of the week for at least two hours, actually finding a space you can actually get your car into (after you’ve had your heart broken by several driveways) sometimes requires several laps around the block. Once, I spent twenty minutes trying to find parking in Hollywood on Las Palmas because it was the only one I knew I could legally park on for more than two hours and had to like, be faster than some dude who was trying to get the same spot as me.
May the odds be ever in your favor, indeed.
