Shadow on the Wall


“There are times, Catarina, when I find myself transfixed by a shadow on the wall, or the splashing of water on a stone. I stare at it, the hours pass. The world around me drops away, replaced by worlds being created and destroyed by my imagination.”
Leonardo da Vinci hologram
Star Trek: Voyager, “Scorpion, Part 1”

A little bit about me: My name's Denise. I'm a college student, majoring in theater. Ergo, I love to act! I also like big words and spend large portions of my time writing fan fiction and original works. I'm a proud nerd and you'll probably see a plethora of posts related to my various obsessions!

Speaking of my obsessions, I love:
Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Mythbusters, Teen Titans, the Inheritance Cycle, Syfy's Alice, and other wonderful things that I can't think of right now!

FYI: Most of the images and GIFs aren't mine.

Hey, you.

Yeah, you, the person who looks incredibly bored. Yeah, you. I’m talking to you.

You have really nice eyes.

I like your smile, too, because it means you’re happy, and I like it when you’re happy.

Now keep on scrolling because this is really embarrassing for me, okay?

This blog fully endorses Calming Manatee.

Because anything, even a meme, that helps you accept your emotions in a healthy manner is worthwhile. Mental and emotion well-being are an important part of fitness that shouldn’t be ignored.

And try not to beat yourself up over it.”]

“Hi! I’m the Doctor. I noticed you were having a bit of a bad day. So! Convinced you’re not important, eh? I’ve never heard a stupider stupid thought in my life. Wait. No. That sounds bad. Misguided, is that a nicer word? I don’t mean that YOU’RE stupid, but just your thoughts are stupid—
Right, anyway. Popped by in the TARDIS to remind you that I have never met someone who isn’t important. And if you’re clever and want to tell me we’ve never met, I’d like to remind you I said, ‘Hi! I’m the Doctor,’ and that counts as an introduction.
You matter. Just remember that. You matter.”

Some girls say they’re not pretty,

s-e-l-f-h-4-t-e:

Because they know someone’s gonna come & say ”Shut up, you know you are”. But some girls say they’re not pretty not because they’re looking for attention but because that’s how they feel. They compare themselves & see what others don’t. We see someone beautiful, but they see stretch marks, gut hanging out, small bodily features that wouldn’t catch the average guy’s eye. That’s why some girls can’t take a compliment, they feel like they don’t deserve it.
