I used to go by 'danse'. I don't anymore. It happens. Before you ask me, 'shikata ga nai' is a very commonly used Japanese expression meaning, 'It can't be helped'. It suits my pessimistic worldview so well.

I'm nineteen, I study linguistics, I speak four languages and I know just enough to be dangerous in a couple more. I don't do poetry but I do like writing short prose. I've been known to spit out a novella in the past, and I have an idea for a book which I currently have no time to write. :/ I update this rarely enough as it is. Life's tough all over, I guess.

Please leave me feedback if you have it, because I can never improve if I don't know what needs working on.

I will close this with some words that aren't mine, because I can.

And I find it kinda funny

I find it kinda sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take...

"I just don't know why you're suddenly so attached to a straying thread," he said. "A skirt isn't made to have bits hanging off of it. You should fix these things when you catch them." She narrowed her eyes. "Nobody's perfect."

Glass reviews
No one had really noticed. She'd shrunk into her own realm, behind her imaginary glass, retreating. //I am in a box,// she thought jokingly, picturing a mime acting it out. She reached her hand out in front of her, as if pressing her palm to glass. She co
