If I’m extra sarcastic with you it probably means I’m flirting with you or you really annoy me and I can’t handle your shit
Have fun figuring out which
YOU GUYS IT’S DECEMBER 10TH YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS HAS BEEN IN MY QUEUE SINCE FEBRUARY
Do you want to know what really bothers me?
When people tell me that I’m a terrible person for not wanting to settle down and have a family when I’m done with college.
I realize that is your ”normal,” but it will not be mine!
This world is so big and so wonderful, full of interesting places and people to see and meet.
People with their own stories and beliefs and reasons for being where they are, and I want to meet them. I want to go places that I have read about in books, I want to see the places that I’ve been dreaming of since I was a little girl, and honestly, travel is very hard and very expensive when you have a family!
I do want to get married. I really would like to have a travelling partner, but I don’t want to have kids. People tell me that I’ll change my mind soon enough, or that I’ll “come to my senses in a couple years.” But that’s all bullshit! Don’t tell me what I will and will not do, and don’t think for a second that you know how my future will turn out! I’m not going to be your average soccer mom. I only have a limited amount of time here on this earth, and I want to use it as best as I can. Helping people, learning things, spreading joy and love, and exploring everything that I possibly can. I feel so passionate about this, that no one really gets how serious I am when I say that I’m joining the Peace Corps, or some other agency that will allow me to travel and help people! I just want to make good use of my life. I want to leave a mark, however small it may be, and I want someone to tell their brother or sister, or their husband or wife, or whoever they have, that they met this person who changed their life in some little way. It doesn’t have to be a big difference, but I want to make one in this world we live in. That is my only goal in life.
In case you’re in need of motivation, have some from the Doctor.
You can do it!
Let’s talk about Johanna Mason for a minute. The scene after Finnick and Katniss endure the torturous jabberjays is powerful for many reasons but what stuck out to me the most (other than Jennifer Lawrence’s incredible acting) was Johanna. She literally screams at President Snow and tells him he can’t put everyone in an arena to psychologically torture and kill them. She’s completely right. He can’t continue to be a coward and put innocent humans in an arena as sacrifices for entertainment value. Then right after she says that, she has this air of complete calm and says, “What? He can’t hurt me. There’s no one left that I love.” That is gut wrenching. The fact that Capitol has taken everything and everyone from this girl, but she keeps on going is something that is truly inspiring. She doesn’t give up even though many would in her situation. She is courageous through it all. She’s not afraid to stand up to the Capitol and show that even though what they’ve done has scarred her, she is a fighter and they don’t control her. That is why Johanna Mason is amazing. We need more characters like her.
I would also like to say thank you to Jena Malone because she exudes every emotional layer of Johanna perfectly and I don’t know of any actress who could’ve done a better job.
I swear I love all of them.
Reminder that while the concept of virginity is technically a social construct, your sexual debut is still allowed to be special to you, and you are still allowed to wait and want to make it meaningful, and your self-perception is still allowed to change after you have sex. Just as long as you’re doing these things for yourself, and not because someone told you that you should.
You do you.
something small yet very meaningful.
