“Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.” – Lori

So there’s a new freshman at my school. And she’s super sweet and nice.
And she’s an insane theatre kid like me
We both have major lady boners for Laura Osnes, and mourned the death of Herman the Fish. We fangirled over Heathers.
And we’re making plans to watch bootlegs together in our dorm rooms some Friday night.
Did I mention she’s the biggest sweetheart ever and we may see Bonnie and Clyde onstage together during our fall break?
