Abbie Nielsen, Dear Future Daughter (via octobermoe)
Really needed this, especially since it’s exams week and my anxiety is overwhelming.
Im going to tell my kids this.
so my boyfriend and I tried roleplaying the other day and we did the whole “professor and bad student who needs to pass” thing, only he wanted to be the professor, so I had to be the horny and failing student. I’m the valedictorian of my senior class of 400 and I have a horrible phobia of flunking, so when he whispered “you’re failing my class, you naughty girl” in my ear, I started crying and we had to stop
When people constantly tell me “old movies are boring.”
"Old movies aren’t funny because they don’t swear."
"There aren’t any cute guys."
"Are you trying to be a hipster or something?"
"its in black and white"
"There’s bad acting"
"the story is pointless"
lets not forget about Cary Grant
"the special effects look fake"
"They aren’t relevant anymore"
when girls think they are better than other girls because they are tomboys who engage in stereotypically “male” activities it makes me want to actually gouge my own eyes out because they are pretty much reinforcing the patriarchal idea that men are better than women without even realizing it and that is just incredibly sad
Women like me do not fall gracefully,
we stumble over our spines, trip over
our vowels, and collapse into your arms.
Our hearts are open books,
Russian novels containing fifty pages
on the way your voice drifts across
the telephone wires each night.
Our hearts are first drafts,
unedited verses about each and every
person we have ever loved: the stranger
on the subway, the girl who gave us a balloon,
the boy who stole our virginity
but not our heart.
Women like me will love you from a distance
of a thousand syllables while laying in your bed,
we will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible,
and when we leave you will finally understand
why storms are named after people.
