“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

I post and reblog: things I think are pretty, things that intrigue me, things I'm a fan of, and things I care about.

Common themes include: books, writing, movies, more books, cozy beds, breakfasts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, feminist issues, and occasional pieces of my life.

"I also expressed my concerns that drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people." —

Malala in her meeting with President Obama (via padarnaalat)

That gif set of her on Jon Stewart got like 60K+ notes, watch this get like ten…

The lack of media attention on this statement confirms that the West likes to tailor Malala’s message to suit its own vendetta. Will anyone be hearing this? No, because feminism! education! down with the Taliban! Smh.

I’m really impressed that I recovered enough to say “Thank you, sir” while urine was running down my leg.

This is the last thing I’ll reblog on the topic. Is a lie.

OH. MY. GOD.

I wish I hadn’t been commuting during this, I’m so bummed I missed it!

“My favorite story out of this is Malia, when she was 4, she had a little dance thing. Well, Michelle was gone that weekend so I’m taking her to ballet. And I get her in her little leotard and her little stuff. I did her hair, put it in a little bun.
We get to the dance studio and one of the mothers there right away comes up to Malia – she thinks she’s out of earshot of me and she says, ‘Sweetie, do you want me to redo your hair?’ And Malia who she’s 4 says, ‘Yes please, this is a disaster’ you know, she didn’t want to hurt daddy’s feelings.”
