Est-ce que tu sais? Je t'aime, crétin.
So, I'm Jackie. This here is my Tumblr. I appreciate a good many things. I can also be known to be scathing and sarcastic. Don't expect too much. I'm from San Diego, California and attend Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania as a Journalism major.
I like Firefly, Sherlock, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Portal and Portal 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Harry Potter, and I would say Doctor Who but I'm still on Eccleston, so it doesn't even count. Also: Questionable Content, HIMYM, Arrested Development, Merlin, and various nerdy things.

When I wrote that sentence, it felt absurd. Of course you have the right to say no. We all do. “Just say no!” “No means no!” And yet…
We grow up learning that “No” is rude. It’s more important to avoid hurting other people’s feelings. It’s important to be polite and accommodating. Setting boundaries and prioritizing our own comfort and safety is selfish. We push these lessons even harder on women, expecting them to be caretakers, putting everyone else’s needs above their own.
I think Listening Ear training - where I became a volunteer crisis and sexual assault counselor - was the first time I really started to learn about the importance of boundaries. We talked about it first in the context of sexual harassment and assault.
You have the right to set your own boundaries, to say no and to have that be respected."
In the past 24 hours I’ve developed nearly-simultaneous crushes on Chris Pine and Jason Bateman and now I feel weird
that one friend that you love but texting them is like hitting yourself in the face with a brick over and over
I feel like people don’t realize how introverted I really am, and interpret it as being antisocial and secluded and awkward.
and then walking back into the library to study for your next one.
