You flicker.  I cannot touch you.  I put my hands among the flames.   Nothing burns.   And it exhausts me to watch you

I always appreciate these on other blogs, so here it goes.
here's a photo of me
Cesca. Sixteen years old. I live in Devon, in England, and above all other aspects of admiration, I hold Sylvia Plath, Van Gogh, and JK Rowling in the highest place.
I have an INFJ personality type
Quirky facts you may not have predicted include; I’ve recently relapsed anorexia nervosa, developed anxiety at the age of 10 and depression at 13, and take sertraline and melatonin, and I research European history an awful lot.

Dogfight (River & Lili, by Savoca) is in 50 Essential Feminist Films list! I’m so happy and proud about this! I copy what they say about it:

A rare film set during the Vietnam War and told from the perspective of a woman, Nancy Savoca’s Dogfight reveals a different kind of cruelty people inflict upon one another, off the battlefield — in this case, a group of misogynistic Marines using women in a contest of looks. Lili Taylor’s peace-loving Rose, who becomes one of the targets in this game, soon realizes she’s being courted by River Phoenix’s Eddie for the wrong reasons — though his guilt and seemingly genuine interest in Rose is apparent. Rose confronts Eddie about the game, defending the honor of all women involved, which winds up bringing them closer together. In Old Wives’ Tales: Feminist Re-visions of Film and Other Fictions, author Tania Modleski writes:

In view of the narcissistic self-referentiality of many male-directed Vietnam films, which repeatedly and utterly disqualify women as authorities in matters of war and peace, we can perhaps appreciate Savoca’s audacity in having her heroine’s aspirations and values point a way out of the trap in which the soldier finds himself.

There is a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.

I don’t even want to recover
This is a coping strategy and I can’t cope with anything right now
