home-of-amazons preguntó: Do you really have thick curly brown hair? I'm trying to imagine you as a female version of Frodo and the image just isn't coming together.
i hope you don’t mind if i publish this since the world needs to know the truth:
i have thick brown hair but it’s a bit longer and straight, not curly. so that kind of cancels out any direct resemblance right there, tragically
on the other hand i’m short, have the whole “bug-eyed idealist” thing that frodo/elijah wood seems to have going on, and maybe in another world would have hairy feet (hairy legs, yes; feet, no).
so in conclusion i can see the frodo resemblance (someone told me i look like that, i didn’t come up with it myself) but you probably wouldn’t mistake me for him on the street
besosbeijosbisous ha dicho those are the worst ppl who can’t speak but also participate a ton absolutely painful imo
i don’t understand what they get out of the class or why they decided to take it. because obviously it’s important to challenge yourself (esp with speaking/pronunciation) but this is not even a challenge it’s just a waste of time??? why are u here…
she also feels the need to raise her hand constantly so it’s just really embarrassing all around
bbb i think we’re in roughly the same level of spanish (yours is probably 10000x better than mine but i mean same academic level) and there’s a girl in my class who literally can’t speak spanish. like i don’t care at all if people make mistakes (since i make the most of anyone i’m sure) but this girl has to stop every two words (no joke) to ask how to say something really simple like “pig” or “punishment” or “method”. like!!!
Natalie Barney (October 31, 1876 – February 2, 1972)
Natalie Barney was an American playwright, poet and novelist who lived as an expatriate in Paris. Barney’s salon was held at her home at 20 rue Jacob in Paris’ Left Bank for more than 60 years and brought together writers and artists from around the world, including many leading figures in French literature along with American and British Modernists of the Lost Generation. She worked to promote writing by women and formed a “Women’s Academy” (L’Académie des Femmes) in response to the all-male French Academy while also giving support and inspiration to male writers from Remy de Gourmont to Truman Capote.
She was openly lesbian and began publishing love poems to women under her own name as early as 1900, considering scandal as “the best way of getting rid of nuisances” (meaning heterosexual attention from young males). In her writings she supported feminism and pacifism. She opposed monogamy and had many overlapping long and short-term relationships, including on-and-off romances with poet Renée Vivien and dancer Armen Ohanian and a 50-year relationship with painter Romaine Brooks. Her life and love affairs served as inspiration for many novels, ranging from the salacious French bestseller Sapphic Idyll to The Well of Loneliness, arguably the most famous lesbian novel of the 20th century.
"What is there for women who feel the passion for action when pitiless Destiny holds them in chains? Destiny made us women at a time when the law of men is the only law that is recognized."
which lord of the rings is this from
