Grad student, but not the worst. Feminist. Vegetarian. Currently obsessed with Broad City, The Mindy Project, Garfunkel & Oates and bright pink lipstick. Always obsessed with Taylor Swift's style, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, and good food.
As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all. Becoming friends with Lena – without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for – has made me realise that I’ve been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so. Taylor Swift on feminism in the Guardian. Great article. I like how smart and thoughtful she comes across in her recent interviews.
I was 17 when I wrote [Better Than Revenge],” she reminds me. “That’s the age you are when you think someone can actually take your boyfriend. Then you grow up and realise no one take someone from you if they don’t want to leave. This whole TSwift interview is giving me life (especially the part where she’s basically like “I had no idea what feminism is when I said I wasn’t one, and now I get it and I am one, so oy with the thinkpieces already), but this quote is especially good!

got no problem with watching a full season of tv in one sitting but when it comes time to pick a movie im like “am i really ready to pay attention to something for two hours”
