Now to sleep so deeply that it’ll take a Pokeflute to wake me up.

All those times you thought you felt a text message were actually a cute lil ghost who wanted to be your friend.

You monster.

Well, now I hate myself forever. Thanks, Tumblr!

I miss the days when every Will Smith movie had a rap song accompanying it.

Whereas any real, self-respecting dad is only derpy, like, 50% of the time.

I’m aware (and annoyed) that this trope is so prevalent in TV, mainly used for comedic purposes. However, here are some TV dads who are actually stable and supportive, who can and do take care of themselves and their children as best they can.
Keith Mars - Veronica Mars.
Sandy Cohen - The OC.
Rufus Humphrey - Gossip Girl
Yes, I watch TV shows catered towards women sometimes, get over it.

Posting my old Formspring Answers.

I was recently reminded of my old Formspring days, when I made a bunch of new friends in a very strange way, by exchanging questions and answers with a group of anonymous strangers on the internet. I looked up my old profile, and I’m going to post some of my favourite answers to questions here.

Flicking back through the years 2010-2012, it’s interesting how my answers show my slow evolution into the person I am today. If you don’t like them, it’s cool. They are mainly for nostalgia purposes anyway.

Do you believe in reincarnation? Why/why not?

I got reincarnated once. Came back as a shoelace, most boring second life ever.

How long do you usually spend on foreplay in comparison to how long you spend actually having sex?

I’d tell you, but I found that using stopwatches to track such things really detracted from the intimacy of the whole thing. Unless we were re-enacting some Olympic athlete fantasy, I suppose. Though I’m not sure a starting pistol really has any place in foreplay.

Can you name the eight colors of the rainbow?

Salmon, taupe, beige, vermilion, buttermilk, avocado, and Greg.

At what point do you believe life begins?

After high school.

My dreams of becoming a doctor were shattered when I was told that “kissing it better” was not standard medical practice, and generally leads to you losing your licence to practice.

As someone who also pursues kissing as a hobby, not being able to practice would have severe repercussions on my personal life.

You can read all about it HERE, and it’s as awesome as it looks and sounds.

From the article:

Made With Code is a new Google initiative to motivate future female programmers. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women, and Google is spending $50 million over the next three years to change those numbers.

More than 150 high school girls turned out for the event, including local chapters of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Black Girls Code and Girls Who Code. Kaling, a writer and actress, emceed the premiere, which brought in Google X Vice President Megan Smith, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton, iLuminate creator Miral Kotb, Pixar Director of Photography Danielle Feinberg and UNICEF Innovation cofounder Erica Kochi.

Come on, let this be a thing. I want to see female coders become such a thing that brogramming culture dies out completely. The prevalence of sexual harassment and bullying perpetuated by the current culture annoys me.

Especially when it’s done by people who know what it’s like to be cast out because they were different…
