Does Anyone Blog Anymore? and Where I’ve Been

I decided to make a post because as I quickly updated my website, I saw the date of my last blog post. Wow. I actually don’t quite remember how to use WordPress. This feels so 7 years ago. Anyway. I got to thinking about someone visiting my website and seeing how dead it all seems… […]

“People should just be allowed to look in the mirror and see all kinds of possibilities.”
M-E Girard, Girl Mans Up

“It's okay to feel bad about how things went down, but it's not okay to drown in guilt and regret every day for having made decisions other people don't agree with. At some point, we all have to man up and decide to do what we have to do, despite the people around us who try to get in the way.”
M-E Girard, Girl Mans Up

“I think maybe she could be my girlfriend. I don't want to be her girlfriend, though. But there's this part of me that totally knows I could be her boyfriend. I don't want her to think of me as a boy, or a boy substitute, though. I want to be a boyfriend who is a girl. I have no idea how to explain that stuff to anyone, let alone a girl I like. I just wish it was already all understood.”
M-E Girard, Girl Mans Up

Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Daphne Scholinski, The Last Time I Wore a Dress
