"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This

This just punched me in the heart.

Tumblr giveaway!

US only. I’m sorry. Last time I sent a giveaway package overseas, it cost me like $20. I can’t afford to ship books overseas :(

Items:

Two pins, one with an adorable dragon, the other with an adorable owl.

One Reading Girl Cameo pendant. If you already have one of these, you can give this one to a friend.

A small notebook and pen set.

Some cute painted clothespins. Mostly because the colors matched the notebook set and they’re cute.

Three books: Death in the Andes by Mario Vargas Llosa, Oranges are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson, and a collection of T.S. Eliot poems. All books are used but in good condition. (Sorry if used books seems weird. I bought these with my own money. FOR YOU.)

HOW TO ENTER

Reblog this on tumblr and add your favorite book of 2014. I will randomly pick a winner on 8/21/14. 

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage: A novel

"

You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.

Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.

Incidentally, this is a red-whiskered bulbul, an Asian bird that has established a few breeding populations in the U.S. I got my life bird at Huntington Gardens in California, and no, thye didn’t give any fucks there either.

This portrays me pretty well today.

Sad news this morning: Poet, performer and political activist Maya Angelou has died after a long illness at her home in Winston Salem, N.C. She was 86.
Born in St. Louis in 1928, Angelou grew up in a segregated society which she worked to change during the civil rights era. Angelou, who refused to speak for much of her childhood, revealed the scars of her past in I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, the first of a series of memoirs.
