Hi my name is Christina. I like pretty things and learning about the world. I belong to unusual fandoms and make gifs when I'm bored. I tend to ignore big problems and overreact to small ones. I love good conversations with people but I hate making eye contact with them. I feel most comfortable on the water and happiest when I'm singing.

One of the best out takes from any television show, ever.

dichotomized:

Formerly the most populated island the Chesapeake Bay, Holland Island is now abandoned and rapidly eroding away. Before that though, the island was home to about 360 residents.  Suddenly in 1914 the wind and tide began to erode the western side of the island. Most of the population lived on that side, and were forced to leave. Pictured above is the last remaining house from Holland Island. It collapsed in 2010.

how about M, P, and R?

M - If I forgive betrayal. I do, it just takes a long time. But I don’t forget, just to keep everything properly in perspective.

P - What kind of music I like. I like a lot of indie rock and alternative rock. Basically if it has guitar and bass in it, I’ll like it. (Okay well I say that as a very general thing, I don’t particularly like metal or plain white tees etc)

R - For me to tell 10 of my curiosities. 
1. Science. My last tumblr before this turned into a science blog and was pretty well respected until i had a mental break haha
2. The care of various living things. I work at a pet store and I love learning and teaching about how to care for lizards, birds, hamsters and such (weirdly though I don’t really want kids)
3. Music. In high school I was part of choir and I learned a lot of music theory and music history, so I have a huge appreciation for classical and well-composed modern music.
4. Health. I’ve always been interested in health sciences and I constantly read about it. I’ll probably go into a health related field eventually.
5. Playing instruments. Goddamn it I really want to play instruments but my manual dexterity is so awful that it’s very difficult. I can play some piano though.
6. History. Mostly history that wasn’t taught in the history books. 20th century history is my favorite.
7. Other people’s lives. This sounds super gossipy, but I take a genuine interest in other’s lives and want the best for them. However I usually shut off when things get to personal about me.
8. The oceans. I REALLY WANT A SCUBA LICENSE AND I WANT TO SWIM WITH A MANTA RAY.
9. True crime. I don’t know, something about reading about serial killers and court cases gets me really intrigued.
10. Art. Art’s funny. I’m not good at it, but I love all sorts of art. I find pieces of art that bring out emotions in me really fascinating.

Some “rare” photos of Mädchen Amick that I haven’t seen posted that often. At least two of them were scanned in the early 90s so the quality is not that great. I apologize about that.
