This is my personal blog, a journal of my life; my blog of pretty things (et cetera) is here. Twenty-three. Might as well be five.
I just moved to Portland, OR, so if you're a Portland-living person, say hi! New friends for a new city are much appreciated.

Just realized that the next-door neighbors have been having a party tonight. You know, the ones whose living room I can see into, just a few feet away, if I look out my bedroom window?

And I’ve been listening to PU$$Y by Iggy Azalea at full volume on repeat for most of the last 45 minutes.

Yes, my bedroom window is open and yes, their living room window is open, so yes, they have absolutely been treated to an almost nonstop repetition of PUSSY, PUSSY, PUSSY that I hope their guests enjoyed.

I love the absolute JOY on people’s face, it’s quite something.


I might have cried a little bit. I want more orchestral flash mobs, please.

KDrew - Danger Zone Ft. Mr. Nickelz (Official Music Video) (by KDrewTV)

Really intense video… abandoned Packard Plant setting for the storyline, spliced with what appears to be footage of the Detroit (and possibly other) riots.

Take a Hint // Tori & Jade
(from TeenNick’s Victorious)


It’s all about consent and it’s so girl power and I miss the Spice Girls but this makes it almost okay.
(Melanie, this is so girls’ studies and I wish you were home right now to talk about it with me!)

why am I always hit on by the boys I never like?
I can always see them coming from the left and from the right
I don’t wanna be a priss, I’m just trying to be polite
but it always seems to bite me in the —
ask me for my number, yeah, you put me on the spot
you think that we should hook up but I think that we should not
you had me at hello, then you opened up your mouth
and that is when it started going south

get your hands off my hips or I’ll punch you in the lips
stop your staring at my —
take a hint, take a hint
no you can’t buy me a drink, let me tell you what I think
I think you could use a mint
take a hint, take a hint…

I guess you still don’t get it, so let’s take it from the top
you asked me what my sign, is I told you it was STOP
and if I had a dime for every name you just dropped
you’d be here and I’d be on a yacht

[chorus: get your hands off my hips, etc]

what about “NO” don’t you get?
so go and tell your friends I’m not really interested
it’s about time that you’re leaving, I’m gonna count to three
open my eyes and you’ll be gone

(ONE) get your hands off my—
(TWO) or I’ll punch you in the—
(THREE) stop your staring at my—
(HEY!) take a hint, take a hint

I am not your missing link, let me tell you what I think
I think you could use a mint
take a hint, take a hint…

fill these spaces up with days
in my room
you can go, you can stay
I can’t sleep
I can’t speak to you

me: listening to Bach while reading
me: still listening to Bach
spotify: HEY you should listen to ONE DIRECTION for the next 45 seconds YEAH let’s do that, they’re cool
me: please dear god bring the cellos back
spotify: here, have more cellos
spotify: oh and here’s an ad for “drinking songs” for St Patrick’s Day because that’s not ridiculous at all
cellos: don’t worry, we’re still here, we love you
spotify: you can keep your cellos for the next like… 15 minutes, but then we have something to say to you
cellos: let the strings fix it, make you feel all better

So there’s this song. I am positive it exists. The internet insists it doesn’t. The lyrics go something like,

I’ve got the Grable grace
I’ve got the Grable face
though I’ve had it much longer than she
gee if I only had her personality

and if anyone can find this song for me, I’ll love you forever. I believe it’s from the 40s, but it could be later.
