I HAAAAAATE EVOLUTIONARY PSYCHOLOGY OH GOD SO MUCH HATE SO MUCH LOATHING HATE HATE HATE
One final left today and I am so unmotivated. I haven’t even looked at study materials. Super senioritis in full swing.
totalitarian dystopian future lit is like “what if the government got so powerful that all the bad stuff that’s already happening ALSO HAPPENED TO WHITE PEOPLE?”
"Going out for a walk. Be back later."
Also hey, if you like this, I have prints of it for sale at my Society 6! There’s only a couple pieces up there right now, but more of my art will soon be available for purchase through there!

(Jane Eyre has been my favorite book since it settled into my psyche around age 13,* but emphasis on “Jane Eyre,” particularly “Jane standing up to for herself and being like I DESERVE LOVE, TAKE YOUR HEAD GAMES SOMEWHERE ELSE, and then being like WAIT HOLD UP I DESERVE LOVE BETTER THAN THIS, KEEP ALL YOUR EARTHLY GOODS, PEACE OUT.” I’m not gonna lie, Full Book Version Rochester is a really shitty guy, and movie versions have to work overtime to dial the racism and sexism (and classism, too) down as best they can. Like, if you haven’t read the book, you have noooooo idea. What I’m saying is, Jane Eyre is a master class in How to Like Problematic Things.)
(Yeah. If you’ve kept up with other things I’ve written about… age 13-14 apparently set the stage for the rest of my life.)
(If you would like to see Louisa May Alcott’s take on Jane Eyre—which I think I read was her favorite book also, and in terms of her “blood and thunder” stories under the A.M Barnard pen name, it shows—which involves a heroine who DOES marry the bigamist, who himself is a straight-up villain, try A Long Fatal Love Chase.)
shout out to Grace for letting me liveblog The Last Unicorn to her. What a champ. True friend.
UGH how can something called The Last Unicorn stab me in the heart so many times? Damnit, now I have to buy another children’s book (ha like that’s not all I own). I’m legitimately sad I never read/watched this when I was younger though, younger Sam would have LOVED THIS SO MUCH wow man. Guys I feel so late to this party. So late but very happy to have arrived.
