my name is kassi and i am twenty, living in the wonderful city of melbourne, australia. i love reading books and writing stories more than anything else in the world. if you were to find me anywhere, i'd be lying in the grass daydreaming about what could be, and what will. i enjoy pixar films, american sitcoms, and thora birch. write me a poem if you want to win my heart. i like to spend my days listening to folky tunes in exciting places. my love for that wizard named harry potter will never die.
“Books are like mirrors: if a fool looks in, you cannot expect a genius to look out.”
— J.K. Rowling
Writing moody songs and trying to ignore feelings. It’s like I’m sixteen again. Oh god.
“As soon as teenage girls start to profess love for something, everyone else becomes totally dismissive of it. Teenage girls are open season for the cruelest bullying that our society can dream up. Everyone’s vicious to them. They’re vicious to each other. Hell, they’re even vicious to themselves. It’s terrible.
“So if teenage girls have something that they love, isn’t that a good thing? Isn’t it better for them to find some words they believe in, words like the ‘fire-proof and fearless’ lyrics that Jacqui wrote? Isn’t it better for them to put those words on their arm in a tattoo than for them to cut gashes in that same skin? Shouldn’t we be grateful when teenage girls love our work? Shouldn’t that be a fucking honor?
“It’s used as the cheapest, easiest test of crap, isn’t it? If teenage girls love a movie, a book, a band, then it’s immediately classified as mediocre shit. Well, I’m not going to stand for that. Someone needs to treat them like they’re precious, and if nobody else is ready to step up, I guess it’s up to us to put them on the path to recognizing that about themselves.”"
