So in seventh grade I was Caine Soren.

Story Time!

In 7th grade, I read the first 4 books in the Gone series (all that was out at the time) and I was in love. Completely obsessed.

So when my teacher announced that of end of the year project would be a “character project,” guess who i picked. Caine Soren. 
For this project, you had to write a piece, from your character’s POV. I wrote an interview. We also had to dress up as our character. This led me to wear a crown, one of my father’s dress shirts and carry around a “scepter” that i made I made on my back deck with a plastic bat, glitter and silver pipe cleaners. 
And I had to share it in the middle of class. It went well.

I basically walked around school all day yelling “I am king Caine fear me.” 

I wish I was kidding.

So tumblr, here’s the beautiful piece I wrote in 7th grade. 

Note: things in bold are comments I made just now.

That’s how much money government subsidized birth control saved the U.S. in 2010. (via micdotcom)

 I received tons of racism. I’ve been beat up twice because of it and called every bad name in the book that you can think of that you can call an Asian person. I was pretty uncomfortable with the fact that I was Asian for so long. I felt it was such a negative thing because of the way people treated me. Luckily, I went to a university that was really diverse and I think my college years is when I started understand that it’s pretty awesome to be Asian American and it’s not really a bad thing to be a minority. I actually felt really empowered and that there were more advantages to being a minority, if that makes sense. Like, I’m 100 percent fluent in two languages. I understand so many more people and cultures because of the fact that I did grow up differently.

cassandra clare and things you probably don’t know but should

alli6:

Okay, everyone, gather around. It’s time for some schooling on the Harry Potter Fandom and some of the greatest fandom wank in its history (and considering that this is the HP fandom, that’s saying something). With the release of the City of Bones trailer, there’s been a whole lot of The Mortal Instruments on my dash, and consequently, Cassandra Clare. Now a bit of a disclaimer, I’m not trying to change anyone’s opinion on Clare’s work. If you like TMI or any of her other series, then that’s perfectly fine, and it in no way makes you a bad person or wrong. But with the recent deletion of a lot of the Cassandra Claire fandom wank pages, I feel like before people give her another dime, they need to be informed or refreshed on all the crap she has pulled as a BNF in the HP fandom.
