I am in love with the movie Moana. Disney really did an amaaazeballs job with it. Some people say it’s much better than Frozen because the female protagonist isn’t a “princess” and “doesn’t fall in love” at the end. Very, very feminist.

But I couldn’t dial the … More Let me text you instead

In short, just to give you a sense of how I define love–love means the wonderful opportunity to be the best of yourself next to someone who is equally inspired by your presence to be the best of themselves. … More Love =/= Relationship
