Books and Ages (or, Why it's Totally Cool to Read...
I usually find Joel Stein pretty amusing. I mean, I don’t regularly read what he writes, but if I find myself with an issue of Time nearby and one of his pieces is in it, I’ll take a look. This disappoints me though. A lot. As an eighteen (and a half) year old, I constantly feel that I am stuck in this weird transitional phase between adolescence and adulthood (a. I’m aware...
I want to be your John Green heroine. Your Alaska Young, your Lindsey Lee Wells, your Margo Roth Spiegelman. I want to be your Great Perhaps, your random road trip, the longest night of your life. Your hurricane, your eureka moment, your enigma. I want to take your whole world and turn it upside down… I had written something like this a few months ago, before I deleted my old blog....
30 Days of Female Awesome

Yeah hi just ignore this.
This is going to be a mushy, it’s-6-a.m.-and-Bubbles-feels-lonely post. Proceed with caution, for you have been warned. [[MORE]]First of all, though, before the mush, can I just be really proud of myself for finally being (mostly) over the boy from September? Like, really? Because this is exciting. I mean, it took me forever, but I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I fucked...
Interviewer: In real life: Friendship or Brothers??
Jensen: That’s almost impossible to explain. Nine months a year we’re stuck with each other literally twenty four hours a day seven days a week because we’re working on the show. Even doing stuff for ourselves in between isn’t possible. We’re constantly together. And even when we’re not actually working together during that nine months, or the other three months out of the year for that matter, we always find ourselves choosing to hang out and be together.
Jared: We even lived with each other!
Jensen: We did.
Jared: We were in each other’s weddings!
Jensen: We were.
Jared: And when we leave Canada for break we’re combining our families to do Christmas together in Texas this year!
Jensen: We will.
The guy I have a really ridiculous crush on was shitfaced and wandered into the lounge I’m sitting in and started talking about how all he wants to do is “fuck a bitch”. I didn’t know what to say (other than to mention that we’ve discussed his use of the term “bitch” in front of me as a way to refer to females) so I just said, “Don’t you have...
She confused gender identity and sexual orientation. I mean, look, I know that not everyone is going to understand the differences between these things, but like… since I do know the differences, I can’t really justify talking about it using her terms, but I don’t know how to correct it, and just… nyeh. I also don’t know if this is a matter of her being unaware of...
My professor told us we would be talking about transgender issues in class tomorrow, and sent us information about two different cases we would be discussing. Apparently, by “transgender” she means “intersex”. I’m going to correct her, I just don’t know how or when. She’s a really great professor but she’s got a thick accent and doesn’t have...

youstupidfucks: babblegirl: Like Jess had introduced him to her buddies at the Women’s Resource Center. And they went to every Take Back the Night and yeah Sam fought things in the night and knew the streets would never be completely safe but at least he could be a part of this movement to rid the streets of one kind of monster and or at least change the attitudes of people because come on...
If you are a Doctor Who fan, just reblog. It will...
I’m at dinner with my family and Trayvon Martin got brought up and I made the mistake of admitting that, y’know, what happened was infuriating and Martin did nothing wrong, and that the situation did in fact have to do with race and racial profiling. I wound up having to leave the room because I couldn’t handle all the yelling that ensued.
Going to a conference about sex and feminism this...
But first I apparently have to have a ~talk with my mother about ~things, specifically the speakers she found on the website (who she referred to as generally “whacked out”). Oh, my. Also, there’s a break room available between sessions, which I tried explaining was purely a place to get a snack and recharge our laptops, but she appears to think will be hosting an orgy. Dear...
Outlawing abortion does not prevent abortions, it...
onceinabluemoose: If you only know one fact in the abortion debate, it needs to be this one. If you doubt this fact, there is lots of evidence to back this up (both statistical and anecdotal). If you think this fact is not important, please leave now. My personal views on the morality of abortion or the status of a fetus are inconsequential because reality is messy and this is a fact.
My roommate’s friend is here and they’re talking about sorority nonsense and all I can think is oh my god this is fucking terrifying why in the hell would you ever voluntarily do this to yourself? Jesus. Also, I’ve decided that if I tried to join a sorority (excuse me while I make gag-y noises for a minute), all they would have to do to make me cry would be tell me my Doc...
Jennifer Lawrence and first impressions:
Woody Harrelson: I was on my bus, and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, 'Hi, Woody, I'm J—is that a sex swing?' Her first sentence to me.
Josh Hutcherson: When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute 'Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah' things. The conversation started with her saying, 'Think about a catheter going in – ouch!' and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse.
Zoë Kravitz: I'd met her a few times, and she was like, 'You should come over and we'll hang out.' So I go over to her apartment, and she opens the door in a towel. She's like, 'Come in, sorry, you're early, I was about to shower.' And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked. She was like, 'Are we here yet? Is this OK?' And I was like, 'I guess we're there!'
Anyone else had a creepy feeling lately? It’s the Republicans in your vagina.– Representative Vicki Barnett, Democratic Whip Michigan House of Representatives at the Planned Parenthood Lobby Day in Lansing (via raven-red) BEAUTIFUL. (via 14kgoldnyc) I was there! She really said this! She’s the greatest :)

Cute boy: I like your shoes!
My thoughts: I like your face!
My words: Thank you!
raptivist: “lets be friends” i whisper as i like all your text posts
Friend: On a scale of 1 to 10, how obsessed are you with Harry Potter.
Me: Nine and three quarters

gao-: babblingbubbles: The Chelsea’s phone is dead and she forgot her charger at home I’m going to pretend that I don’t suspect that this was intentional and won’t have it again until Friday which means I can’t talk to her all week which is a major fucking problem because I literally talk to her all the goddamn time, plus I left my earphones at home, and so between the two I am just wholly and...
