girl fact #285: makeup gives us super human strength. if you see a girl with perfect winged eyeliner and red lipstick, approach with caution. she’s got the power to slay her enemies with one look and use their blood as blush.
I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn’t make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.
Sylvia Plath (The Bell Jar)
God this quote.
Don’t even care that Sylvia Plath’s become shorthand for, like, sad teen girl poseurs because guess what—that’s bullshit.
I hate how much I identify with her.
These are my IDEAL GLASSES. Where do I find them? I have been looking. Also, everything else is…everything, so of course her classes are le creme.
Location: Austin, TX
Abortion Fund: The Lilith Fund
Affiliation: Board Member
Why I Do This Work: Because without access there is no choice. If a friend asked me for $5, $50, or $500 to be able to pay for an abortion, I’d give it. I volunteer on the hotline, I donate, and I fundraise. I’ll be fundraising for abortions until we repeal the Hyde Amendment and all people have access to full spectrum reproductive healthcare (this this we call choice).

Whoo! I know her! Proud of my Lilith Funders.
