Pride and Pen

I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason, and without all of the ridiculous, horrible, and awesome things that have happened to me I would not be the person I am today, and without what happens today I will not be the person I'm supposed to be tomorrow.
I'm sure that the world has great things in store for me, I just have to find them.

If one can call a place outside of both fiction and reality home, that's what I would call this. This is my home.

This blog is purely for me, it's my place to be as geeky as I want, be as hipster as I want, to just be me. This being said, I'm also generally a pretty nice person, and i'd love to chat with you.

"One way to get the most out of life is
to look upon it as an adventure."

Ooooohhhh questions, I love questions! :)

Submitions I guess?
Read the Printed Word!


I desperately need more books. I have one book that I’m reading right now, and it’s the last of my unread books. All I want to do is go to Powell’s book store in Portland and get more books.

It’s my favorite place in the entire universe, and I have a mile long list of books I want to buy at the moment. So I want to go and sit on the floor, and take up space in the isles and be in peoples way with my basket full, and piles of books.

Because I am that girl. I am the girl who will take up way too much space and slide out of the way when she finally realizes someone’s leaning over her to try and get a book. I am the girl that will stand and wait patiently for ten or twenty minutes for someone to move so I can get to the books behind them. I will say excuse me, and please and thank you. Because I really am grateful to get to the books behind you.

I am the girl who loses herself in the bookstore but never gets lost. The girl who never looks at her map of Powell’s but gets a new one every time she goes. I’m the one who uses the computer only when desperate, until then I will look at every single cover until i find the book I want. I am excited by each and every new book I find and in love with every new book I choose to read. 

Yes, I am that girl, who loses herself in the books, and never realizes whats going on around her. The book is far more important. Imagines herself in the wizzarding world of Harry Potter, and begs not to be chosen as a tribute in The Hunger games, who trusts her parents not to send her off to be an Unwind (even though she’s to old now to be unwound). I am not in reality and one other world of someone’s imagination (combined with my own). I am in every other world, and rarely in reality.

Because reality is never really good enough for me, unless I’m in a bookstore.
