a tumblr from a grumpy mythological creature.
forever and ever grateful for the intelligent, thoughtful, kind, fucking hilarious females i’ve met through tumblr. you have made me a better human, a better feminist, a better friend, and a better nurse. you are more like family than friends, even though i haven’t met most of you. i love all of you oh so much!
