Hi, I'm Brenna.
My life isn't interesting.
I just like to pretend it is.
Olin College Class of 2018
One time when Sirius was helping out with Mrs. Potter’s baking she asked him to stir the batter and he replied with a “sure, Mom” and almost dropped the bowl as he realised what he said. But then James sneaked up behind him to try and stick his finger in the batter and Mrs. Potter slapped at his hand and complained about her messy sons, and Sirius just beamed
There was magic there, I swear it. I tried to go to the library but you needed student ID.
Fun fact I learned on a tour here: after they built their original library they filled it with so many books that their weight caused the building to begin slowly sinking into the earth. It got so bad that they had to build a second library.

Window frost (also called fern frost or ice flowers) forms when a glass pane is exposed to very cold air on the outside and moderately moist air on the inside. If the pane is not a good insulator (such as a single pane window), water vapour condenses on the glass forming patterns. The glass surface influences the shape of crystals, so imperfections, scratches, or dust can modify the way ice nucleates. If the indoor air is very humid, rather than moderately so, water will first condense in small droplets and then freeze into clear ice.

Sometimes I see posts like these and just think to myself like wow.. This could literally be the cause of my death.
This is just cruel.
What I Be Project, Steve Rosenfield
Photographer Steve Rosenfield recently asked subjects far and wide to complete the following statement: "I am not my ___ ". He prompted individuals to fill in the blank with their deepest and darkest insecurities, moving people to bring issues regarding body image, substance abuse, mental illness, race and sexuality to the forefront. The results of the social experiment of sorts is a photography series titled the What I Be Project, an intimate examination of the anxieties and inhibitions that plague men and women of all ages.
The “What I Be Project” is all about honesty.
In today’s society, we are told to look or act a certain way. If we differ from these “standards,” we are often judged, ridiculed, and sometimes even killed over them.
By stating “I am not my_____,” people are claiming that they do in fact struggle with these issues, but it does not define who they are as a person. It is not aimed for people to say “You’re not fat,” or “You don’t have love handles.” It is to spread awareness on what people go through due to society’s paved roads. These are serious issues that some of us can live with, but most battle on a day to day basis.
- I am not my shame.
- I am not my gender.
- I am not my image.
- I am not my turban.
- I am not my weakness.
- I am my amputation.
- I am not my bi-polar disorder.
- I am not my adoption.
- I am not my number.
- I am not my vision.
