After a slew of ridiculousness, I'm finally a senior! Graduating in May and hoping to pursue all things music, film, and feminism :) my wordpress blog contains everything - mostly feminism, body image, intersectionality, books, and movies. I also write screenplays and make vines with my little sister when I visit my home state. Soon I'll be posting videos on youtube, keep an eye out! You can follow me on twitter at @AllixStewart
