"I do believe in the power of story. I believe that stories have an important role to play in the formation of human beings, that they can stimulate, amaze and inspire their listeners." - Hayao Miyazaki
Y’all, this happened.
How did this get made without my knowledge? Will I be able to understand any of it? Questioning everything right now, but I can’t wait to see it.

Beautiful speech given by my girl Ellen Page at the first HRC Time to Thrive conference (which promotes “safety, inclusion and well-being for LGBTQ youth”). And by “girl” I mean “girlfriend” - call me, Ellen.

"How Many More Times"
January 11, 1969
I feel that this bootleg is an essential to all Zeppelin fans. The quality of this recording really shows the true energy and power of the band.
The year 2013 was an interesting one - I put grad school on hold just as I hit the halfway mark, kissed my boyfriend goodbye, and hopped on a plane that took me all the way from New Orleans to Osaka (well, it was a few planes). I have made so many fabulous friends, embarked on exciting experiences, and learned lots since my arrival here in Japan. I am looking forward to spending all of 2014 calling this place home!

Happy New Year, y’all.
In case y’all have missed my silly lists, here are my New Year’s Resolutions for 2014:
- Write more
- Exercise often
- Study Japanese regularly
- Photograph something - anything - everyday
Truly, I would like to do all these things daily. I am setting my goals high so that when I inevitably fail I will still be accomplishing something - not studying Japanese everyday but three times a week is still better than where I was before. Also, I started all these resolutions when 2013 was still around, so hopefully they are already becoming habits.
Since I live in Japan you can catch my 365 photo project on my other blog, Let’s Get Kinki.
