I adore my dog, laughter, my kindle, honesty, music, curiosity, sprawling vistas, leisurely conversations about everything, foodgasms, Disneyland, board games and kindness. lots of kindness. I want to try and make the world a better place.
I am girl that has a disability called Cerebral Palsy but isn’t wholly defined by it. It’s there, it is part of me and my life but there is also so much more to me.
In my veins runs rock music. Butter cream frosting. Tea and ginger ale. I have a strong sense of adventure and a ton of passion. This is where I keep stuff going on in my head. Crazy place.
This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.
That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.
one of my roommates used to work with 5th graders in a creative writing class thing and they had to write a romance and most of the kids wrote stories about princesses and crap but this one little girl wrote about how a marshmallow fell in love with a mug of cocoa and he loved the cocoa so much that in order to be with her he melted and died like wow kid that’s some shakespearian shit right there
