For us, there is no elsewhere






I'm Bee. I am part PhD candidate, part hermit.

My blog has a lot of things on it. I run almost entirely by queue. I don't know how to write summaries.

A complete list of shows I have watched can be found here. I blog about things like feminism, queer issues, science, and working in a research lab. I recommend the green "about" button on the left for something better than this sidebar.

On this blog, spoilers are tagged and/or put under a read more. Trigger and content warnings are used and you can find a list of what I tag here. Please always message me if you would like something tagged.

I only have three more weddings booked for photography.  Like… at all.  It’s weird.  I purposely took no bookings in 2015 because I didn’t want to a) overwhelm myself when I have my dissertation, defense, and graduation on my plate and b) commit myself to being in a certain place on a certain date when I have no idea what my timeline is after graduation (or even when things like interviews might be scheduled).  So I knew this would happen and it isn’t like I suddenly don’t have clients.  But I just looked at my calendar and there’s only three left before the end of the year (nobody gets married in the winter, so it’s just through fall).  And I don’t know if I should be excited because less stress or sad because less fun.  But I’ve super super enjoyed having weddings as a part of my photography work and I definitely will resume them once I am settled in a new place and new regular job and find the time again.

if I continue to both dress + act like it’s fall, it’ll suddenly become fall and everything will be great.

To ensure that mud and dirt doesn’t get tracked into their nice forest home, chipmunks are incredibly hygienic and will constantly groom themselves from head to tail.

Perpetual Calendar, 2013 | by Arina Pozdnyak

❝When a Vassar girl takes a shine to another, she straightway enters upon a regular course of bouquet sendings, interspersed with tinted notes, mysterious packages of “Ridley’s Mixed Candies,” locks of hair perhaps, and many other tender tokens, until at last the object of her attentions is captured, the two women become inseparable, and the aggressor is considered by her circle of acquaintances as — smashed.❞
(This 1893 report from the Yale student newspaper is part of the long history of romantic friendship)


"This is what’s different: Now, I’m not getting any negativity. In fact, teenage boys come up to me on the street and want to get their pictures taken with me, want to give me a hug, tell me that Big Boo’s their favorite character. That means a lot to me. Because I’m winning the hearts and minds of people that are young and are going to grow up and control the world.” - Lea DeLaria

❝I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.❞
