About Me

Hi, I’m Julia, and I never know what to put in this section. Um. Someday, I will grow up to be a cat lady and maybe also an alcoholic. Right now I am a student, a wannabe writer, and occasionally an amateur musician when I remember to do music. Also I spend way too much time online, and there is a very high chance that I am the actual worst person.

I like nerdy things and history and musicals and politics and crying over fictional characters. I will probably like you, as well. I like most people. If you’re nice to me I will probably Stockholm Syndrome you into being my friend, so, y’know, do that at your own risk.

Favorite Quotes

There comes a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part; and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop, And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, the people who own it, that unless you’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all. – Mario Savio

I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.’ – Maya Angelou

[Compassion and tolerance] are not better in moderation; they are better loud, unapologetic, audacious, and bold. – Lucas Zucker
