Begin to Hope

Are you now, or have you ever been, a feminist?

31 July
I’m flirting with distraction, drunk on it’s sloth.

Uncentered, unbalanced and unable to write -- I am an English/Film/Law student at Carleton University with hopes of being extremely rich. Unfortunately, because I am an overambitious overachiever I will probably never reach that goal...

I'm neurotic, picky, panicky, worrisome, crazy, funny, and ohh... somebody has "intimacy issues"

--A Few Good Quotes--

"This is a dumb world. In my world there are people in chains, and we can ride them like ponies."- Vamp Willow, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

"If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater."- Firefly

"Right now everything is great, everyone is happy, everyone is in love and that is wonderful. But you gotta know that sooner or later you're gonna be screaming at each other about who's gonna get this dish. This eight dollar dish will cost you a thousand dollars in phone calls to the legal firm of That's Mine, This Is Yours."- When Harry Met Sally

"Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know; maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop." - Grey's Anatomy

"Of course I'm holding back, I'm insane you idiot. Remember the other day when you told me I had pit-stains, well I have cried every fifteen minutes on the half-hour since you told me that. I am racked with self-doubt, I have panic attacks, I'm claustrophobic, germ-phobic, phobia-phobic. I talk to myself, I talk to my cats, I talk to three separate shrinks about the fact that often my cats respond to me in my mother's voice and, yesterday, when that stupid, pretty surgical nurse handed you a pair of latex gloves I almost killed the guy who's leg I was stitching up because I couldn't stop thinking about the two of you having sex on a box of steaks. Why a box of steaks? 'Cos my Dad had an affair with a female butcher and, as I mentioned before, I am insane. There, I opened up, are you happy? "- Scrubs
