Dream-come-true for a rock/mineral collector! Today was amazing and I can’t wait to add these to my collection. The top photo is of my sisters and me in the “Crystal Quest.” The bottom is what I got from it!!!

I just followed importantbirds. This is life-changing.

1. Favorite movie
The World Unseen, probably. Also: Moon, Suspicious Customers, and The House Bunny.

2. Favorite memory
That’s hard to answer.

3. Celeb crush

4. Where do want to live
I think I might want to stay on Long Island. I want to try Canada or Sweden for a bit. Who knows?

5. Describe your dream house
Nothing too fancy, but with enough space for all my hobbies. Some days I feel like living in a city apartment, other days a suburban house with a nice property.

6. Cats or dogs

7. Do you wear glasses
YEAH since, like, first grade.

8. Do you like spicy food
Yes, but I don’t have a high tolerance for it. 

9. Any fears?
Whales. The possibility of whales. The possibility that, in the right conditions, a whale may be able to exist near me. Swimming across the deep end (8ft) of a public/hotel pool by myself because whales. Things that resemble a whale even in the slightest bit, especially if it resembles a whale’s tail (this is also partially why I am afraid of butterflies). I almost swerved off the road while driving once because it was night time and I saw a water tower that was lit up from the bottom making it look like a giant whale tail statue and I yelled. I went kayaking last year, but my dad and aunt got too ahead of me, so I was by myself and I began to imagine whales jumping over my kayak. I think this is a legitimate phobia. (But it’s okay to laugh).

10. Worst job you’ve had
I haven’t really been employed enough.

11. Favorite drink
Chocolate milk, ginger ale, or Honest Tea’s green tea with honey.

I’m tagging anyone who is bored and feels like doing something. Answer the questions above or make your own based on what you feel like writing. And just pretend I tagged you. Yay!


When I say my neighborhood is in the woods, I mean literally. (Yes, that is a claw foot bathtub with pillows and blankets in it.)

I have been given a large collection of lesbian mystery novels. Help.

And now something else just scared me oh my gosh I want to call my dog over but everyone’s sleeping and he’s in the other room.

I hate those moments when you get scared, but you’re not in the optimal place/position for making yourself feel better, so you want to move to stop being scared, but you’re too scared to move, so you just kinda have to wait it out.

I had no idea that Orange Is the New Black has been filmed at the prison a couple minutes from my house… But more importantly, I didn’t know how bad the conditions for real-life prisoners there is. Riverhead, what are you doing? Get your stuff together. It’s upsetting that these civil rights violations have been happening just one town over from me and no one says anything about it. Prison reform is needed.
Here’s how to get involved.


just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time

it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness


I figured, now that I’m driving my own car, I may as well enjoy driving through a HUGE puddle when no one’s around, just to see what it’s like, SO I DID AND AS SOON AS MY TIRE HIT THE PUDDLE I SAW TWO INDIVIDUALS AND A DOG WALKING OUT THEIR DRIVEWAY NEXT TO THE PUDDLE AND OH MY GOD THE SPLASH WAS A TIDAL WAVE I’M PRETTY SURE I DROWNED THEM. They weren’t terribly close, so it probably missed them by a couple of feet, but in the moment all I saw was water and still I am the worst. I’m so sorry, whomever you are, even if you just got a little sprinkle on your toes.

I’m so proud of myself and my car. It’s my favorite color. I brought it home yesterday!

Someone literally said “He looks 25 anyway” about me today. First of all, I highly doubt I look 25 years old. Second, what is it with the increase of me being perceived as male by strangers? I don’t like it.

Happy Puerto Rican day!
My family is celebrating at the beach for my aunt’s birthday rather than going to the parade.

FUN FACT: Did you know that New York has the second largest population of Puerto Ricans? The first largest is Puerto Rico, of course. This is where the term Nuyorican comes from - Many of us use this term to signify the culture and heritage of non-Puerto Rican-born Puerto Ricans in our home, New York.

"Nuyorican is a portmanteau of the terms "New York" and "Puerto Rican" and refers to the members or culture of the Puerto Rican diaspora located in or around New York State especially the New York City metropolitan area, or of their descendants (especially those raised or still living in the New York area). This term could be used for Puerto Ricans living in other areas in the Northeast outside New York State. The term is also used by Boricuas (Puerto Ricans from Puerto Rico) to differentiate those of Puerto Rican descent from the Puerto Rico-born."

I… thank you.
