Lavender Blues

I just got my M.A. in literature; now, I search for jobs and run, write, and draw stuff in what what spare time I have.

I really like Edna St. Vincent Millay, Bahktin, and Superjail. My childhood largely consisted of Sailor Moon and Harry Potter (Pottermore says I'm a Slytherin). I am also a huge Welcome to Night Vale fan. If your screen turns cyan and starts screeching at you while viewing my blog, rest assured that that's normal, and your hearing will return to normal in a few months, which is also when the greenish hair on your knees will start to fall out. Like I said, no problem.

Also, if you like fantasy, check out a project of mine under the We Four Elements tag or at we-four-elements here on Tumblr.

"La Resistance," Mary Prankster (Apparently she had a shoe thrown at her and was banned from a good number of local restaurants.)

I got excellent intentions
And unbeatable excuses
And I’m moderate in vices
With the usual abuses

I got entertaining stories
And a cheerful disposition
And fanatical devotion
To a kamikaze mission

kaylabickers-illustration:

Completed thesis! Five neighborhoods of Baltimore complete.

Brewers Hill, Inner Harbor, Mt. Vernon, Hampden, and Pigtown.

2013

Nothing to do with dating but this needed to be reblogged. Hopefully the designer makes these available as prints in the future because they’d make sick gifts.

It makes me irrationally upset that they put The Wire on the eastern shore…which is, like, mostly hicks and tourists (a.k.a. the exact opposite of Baltimore’s population).
(The “Philadelphia” from Always Sunny is about where Baltimore is, for reference. I know, I know—it’s because eastern states are weirdly shaped, etc., etc.) View Larger

idontwearclothes said: Fun Fact (if you didn’t already know): One time time Andre Royo (Bubbles) was going for a smoke while they were shooting, and a guy on the streets of Baltimore gave him a packet of heroin and because “he looked like he needed it”.

ahahaha it’s even funnier when you consider what a snappy looking dude Andre Royo is when he’s not in Bubbles wardrobe.
