Disclaimer: This blog can almost entirely be summed up as "puppies and politics" (surprisingly little pandas or plaid) and is mainly used to document the things that make me smile.
I am a 20-something American female college student, and I care very much about the world as a whole and us humans that live on it. Feel free to say hi!

Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’
