Anonymous asked: Are you Muslim?

No. 

I was raised in a Greek Orthodox Church. Based on my experience in the church, Christianity didn’t vibe with me. But I respect that the religion allows people a values system and a moral code to guide their lives. 

I pretty undecided on religion currently. Maybe someday I’ll have a clue. For me, the three Abrahamic religions share a lot of similarities in their values. It is about finding a community to express those values in. I have yet to find that community.

My boyfriend and I are doing long distance for the next two years. It is the worst. It’s only been 5 days.

Listening to immortal technique loudly when I am angry always makes things better.

"So you’re fluent already?"
- says every person who never studied a language.

I think my life got a lot better when I learned how to properly wash my own hair.

Even though I give America a lot of guff I do enjoy a red (shoes), white and blue outfit. 

*boyfriend’s house has no full length mirror so acrobatics were in order.

There have only been two times I have been under tornado alert. Freshman year of college and last night.
Freshman year - class was cancelled. I went back to my room. I realized I didn’t know what to do in a tornado. So I watched Netflix.
Last night - look up all possible information about tornados. Watch the pretty lightening while freaking out.

A college education right there. Informed, but panicky.

I leave Michigan in less than three weeks. I’ll miss my boyfriend and produce prices.
Only good things about the Midwest.
