I probably won't have the sanity to deal with your problems but tell me all about them anyway.

My name's Danielle. I'm 22.

I'm passionate about '90s childhood nostalgia, feminist rants, Emma Stone, and the pastel color palette.

Ocasionally, I have heartwarming revelations about existing on the planet.

If you didn't want to walk into a child's bedroom in the 1980s, this is the wrong door.

It took me until my third year in college to learn that, when I get a salad or make a sandwich at the deli, the thing I find really delicious that is seasoning up the dish is onions.

Three years on-and-off of various combinations, trying to determine what it is in this combined ingredient group that I think tastes so good.

What you can get out of this is, I don’t pay much attention to things and I could never be a taste tester for anything because it’s tough for me to distinguish one ingredient from another when it’s in a combination.

"Hey, I made this soup with a little more garlic, can you tell me if you think this is better?"

"Well, I can tell you right now that it tastes like a soup but if you get me in three years, I can report back at least one of the flavors to you. Just send me my paycheck in 2017."

Remember that time I went on a date and my opener for discussion was about feminism and it turned him off immediately and I said to his face “If we don’t agree on this, this never would have went anywhere anyway”?

Sometimes my mouth craves Hot Pockets and my stomach makes a gurgling noise that just rejects that idea and it says “I’m not really trying to sit on the toilet that long today, let’s try something cleaner and safer.”

I’ve adopted a new characteristic of speaking in which, when someone asks me a question I feel is stupid, I start off answering it with “I mean…” and it makes me sound extremely condescending at work.

"Is the bread here [starts to head down aisle 7 with baking needs]?”

I mean…it’s in 11 with the aisle marked ‘bread’…”

"Oh okay! Thanks!"

Most customers don’t catch onto it, or if they do they remain good sports about it, but I’m starting to feel kind of like a dick and I don’t catch it until it’s already out of my mouth.

You never realize how often you need a microwave until the one your family’s had for 35 years finally shits the bed.

It’s like when the power goes out and you try to think of all these various ways to try to obtain light and you forget and repeatedly flip the light switch a couple times.

I still look at an empty counter, clutching cold coffee.

I still look to the empty counter, holding a chilled takeout container of Chinese food.

I may starve.

About five years ago, my dad reorganized the silverware drawer so the columnal order went knives, spoons, forks.

For the first seventeen years of my life, though, it went knives, forks, spoons.

My brain has refused to accept and learn from this knowledge and every single time—unless I’m grabbing a knife, whose order has not changed—I grab a fork when I want a spoon and vice-versa.

If my brain were in that saying “Can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” it would be the rustiest, crustiest, ricketiest looking pooch that no one would want to pet because they’d be afraid she’d fall apart if you even looked at her wrong.

It’s weird to me that people believe in soul mates because why would you choose to believe there’s only one person out there for you? That makes the price of everything seem so much more.

Life isn’t an “ALL SALES ARE FINAL” blowout sale in a store going out of business. The store doesn’t close forever if I don’t get that one specific sweater I want to wear for the rest of my life.

It’s a lot more comforting to know that, if you fuck up this relationship, there are many more people out there you are potentially compatible with.

I know I could make friends with so many more people. That’s why it’s so important that the people you choose to spend your time with are ones who make you happy and that you’re not wasting your time with.

The people you choose to spend time with are those that you have personally selected to improve your life, not the only possible people on the planet you could get along with so you guess this is what you’re stuck with.

"There is a reason why heterosexual people are obsessed with asking similar-sex couples, “So, who’s the man?” They want to know who fucks and who, as it were, is fucked. Because sex is power – specifically, the exercise of male power upon women – then any time power is exercised, it invokes the spectre of male and female roles. When sex is defined by power, determine who has the power in the fuck and who does not, or who gains social status in the fuck and who loses it, and you will discover who must compulsorily be fucked by whom."
