You’ll never live forever and I’ll forget you just the same.

"So you’re a Hufflepuff?"
"Only on my better days."
High school is in no way irrelevant. All of the things that happened to me in high school are still part of me. I am still friends with the best people I knew in high school. A great deal of the self-exploration I did during those years continues to define me. The music and media I discovered then have hugely influenced what I’m into now (and a lot of that media is still the same stuff…like, I still watch Buffy…and the fact that Joss Whedon went on to do huge amazing stuff like The Avengers is really special for me because I was rooting for him when he was making weird, quirky, content with a cult following that I was proud to be a part of.
That’s just one tiny example.
And, of course, the insecurities that were created by crappy people and crappy situations in high school have continued to affect me, and I imagine will continue to affect me forever.
I basically created myself in high school. And I am still that self that I created…and if I had done a worse job of it, I would be a worse person. So don’t let anyone tell you that those years don’t matter.

My daily mid-stretch crisis
THIS IS IMPORTANT!
Yesterday, I went to Disneyland. Apparently, at their Innovations building, there is a HUGE Avengers exhibit, complete with appearances by Captain America and Thor. Naturally, I ran screaming into said building, camera at the ready. After falling on the ground in front of the array of Iron Man suits and bursting into tears at the Steve Rogers exhibit (exactly like the Smithsonian one in TWS) I got in line to meet the Star-Spangled Man. (The workers were all awesome, they loved that I was such a nerd and so unbelievably excited to meet the Captain.)
My purse has a large Doctor Who pin on it, (not pictured) and the camera man for Steve pointed at it, looked at Cap, and was like “Look at this, it says something about she’s a Doctor?” and Cap points at it and goes "Oh, that looks like a blue police box!" so I said, (I was speechless guys I literally am such a dweeb) "It is." and he said "When I was in England doing an Op in 1942, I was stuck in a burning building and a man named John Smith pulled me out of the building, and then ran into a blue police box just like that and disappeared. Do you know if this has anything to do with that?"
I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT I SAID IN RESPONSE. YOU GUYS. THE CAPTAIN AMERICA AT DISNEYLAND WATCHES DOCTOR WHO. HARDCORE REFERENCED DOCTOR WHO. KNEW ABOUT THE WHOLE JOHN SMITH ALIAS THING. CAPTAIN AMERICA WATCHES DOCTOR WHO. I AM IN TEARS REMEMBERING ALL OF THIS.
anyways, we took pictures, i cried when i walked out, thought you all ought to know. the end.
This dude knows his stuff. He’s the same Cap that I saw during my bachelorette party. When I gave him a drawing as a gift for his upcoming July 4th ‘birthday’, I mentioned I thought he would appreciate it because I knew he had gone to art school before the war. He GRINNED so big and said "Wow, no one ever remembers that!"
He also made me punch his shield because I had my Winter Soldier jacket on.
Disney, KEEP HIM, HE’S PERFECT
WHEN I WAS THERE I HAD MY TARDIS PHONE CASE AND HE ASKED WHAT IT WAS AND I TOLD HIM AND HE ADDED IT TO HIS LIST I LOVE HIM KEEP HIM FOREVER
*dramatic soap opera music plays in the distance*
Two households, both alike in genocide
In fair Gallifrey, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life
