none of these are really good action shots (refer to the phhs 2010 and 2011 for a full page spread of yours truly) but today Dana taught me how to play tennis and it was rough. Rough mainly bc I wasn’t allowed to play tennis in HS because my coach was training my wrist for badminton championships (see photo) since 9th grade, (tennis swings and badminton swings are very different, and tennis messes up your badminton and vice versa and it takes a lot of practice to separate the two and I experienced this firsthand today). it was just frustrating bc I went at learning tennis with badminton still in my wrist and my jumpshots (even after not playing for 4 years bc I lost my racket, cry) and that just messed up everything and I’m currently no good at tennis. but someone gimme a birdie and a tall net and THEN we can tango.

That moment in your childhood when you realize that Diagon Alley is just the word diagonally….
And the Mirror of Erised is just the word desire backwards.
Didn’t even realize. Does that mean Knockturn Alley is nocturnally (dark/night)?
Yes, and Grimmauld Place is a play on grim old place.
And Dumbledore is just a dumb old door

feeling all of the feelings as I read about the sociology behind women in leadership and identifying so much with the sad truth that it hurts. and because of this, I can’t have a single day of vacay to be with my family without it being ruined by my job even from a far. Ish needs to change, and we, women, will overcome.

I have a lot of hate in my bones because of the people that I work with and it is ruining me! and I have no idea how to shake it off.
I hate that in order for women to be successful, we have to be disliked. I hate that because I’ve come to this realization and it hurts. a lot.

I’ve been experimenting with bees and gold ink! Also my scanner crapped out, which is just as well because the ink looks better photographed than scanned.

goodbye to my raven’s purple nike shox that I’ve had since 8th grade and have carried me thru miles and miles of running and walking and that time we walked the cobblestone of Rome and when you helped me jumpshot my way thru high school badminton championships…your arches are broken and shocks deflated.. it’s the end of an era.
