Life is all about progress, not perfection.

My name is Jenny. I'm 22, straightedge, and vegetarian. I live in Portland, Oregon. I study English, German, Sex/Gender Studies, and Secondary Education at Portland State University. I'm an atheist influenced by Buddhism. I love music of all kinds, but metal is my favorite. I have tattoos, piercings, and crazy colored hair. I bake and cook and read and explore and go to concerts and try to lead a life I'll be happy about when I'm old and withered.


do you ever see a person you love do something really fucking ridiculous and you just watch and think “ah yes this is where i have laid my affections”

sorry i’m late, professor. im disenchanted with the human experience and waking up every morning thrusts me into an instant existential crisis

When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
  • books
  • unexpected kindness in strangers
  • the rest of the world to travel
  • languages to learn
  • animals to take care of
  • volunteer work to do
  • the power of a good night’s rest
  • the changing of seasons
  • infinite things to learn
  • billions of people to meet and possibly love
  • billions of people who might love you back

Needed this today

Everyone’s got the same insecurities as you
Believe me it is true
Do not be afraid
To show people the real you.
