“Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable.”—Sometimes, I Just Don’t Have Time for Individual Fights | this ain’t livin’
Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.
alb your hair looks really pretty! did you let it fade or something? it looks like a lighter pink than usual.
Yeah! Usually after I bleach my roots I do my whole head in my regular bubblegum pink colour. This time I decided to just tone my roots and I left them blonde for a few days before adding lavender to them, and didn’t dye the rest of my hair at all. The colour of pink in my hair currently is a colour that is basically permanent, a very light whitish pink. I’m enjoying having this lighter shade right now ♡ it’s nice to change your look every now and then.
Hey Miss ALB, will you be attending NYCC this year? I know you've been crazy busy and I'm sorry if you've been asked this a million times already. I'm just hoping to meet you/say hi/be generally awkward in your presence. (Well, I'd prefer to be suave & enviable, but I'll take what I can get...)
NYCC takes place on Canadian Thanksgiving so it’s not a great convention for me as far as timing goes! I won’t be in attendance, because I’ll be taking the opportunity to spend some much needed time visiting my family back home.
