Hey! Austen, here.
I'm in the process of figuring
out this whole gender thing, so you
might also know me as Alison.
Welcome to my personal blog.
It's full of pretty people, pretty places,
fandom, and journal entries.
I try half-heartedly to be quality,
and wholeheartedly to be myself.

"We should make Easter a forty-day celebration. If Lent is that long, Easter should be at least that long, all the way to Ascension. We should meet regularly for Easter parties. We should drink champagne at breakfast. We should renew baptismal vows with splashing water all over the place. And we should sing and dance and blow trumpets and put out banners in the streets. And we should invite the homeless people to parties and we should go around town doing random acts of generosity and celebration. We should be doing things which would make our sober and serious neighbors say, ‘What is the meaning of this outrageous party?’"
—  N.T. Wright (via gospelofthekingdom)

I feel like this should be pretty self-explanatory. I’m drawing these for a zine at my college (and they have a tumblr! lips-appstate.tumblr.com!), but submissions are due today, so they’re a bit more rushed than I would have liked.

I tried to be inclusive and not-shitty. Hopefully I succeeded at that. There are more of these I’d like to draw, but like I said, time limitations :P

tkdoesthings TEEAAAAK, those two cuties in that first pic loOK LIKE US.. WHO DREW US?!?!?!PK@#P$$T

Here’s my (belated) photo of the blood moon Monday night/Tuesday morning. Ari and I stayed up until 2:30 watching it. Pretty amazing! Ari let me borrow her nice DSLR to get a photo of it, but without a zoom lens you can’t get too close. Staring at the moon once it was in full eclipse, plus the addition of those two bright points (which were probably Mars and a bright star) made me feel like I was on another planet, looking up at space from an entirely different point of view. I wish we had more solar bodies close to Earth, so we could see more things with the naked eye, but I guess having a moon is pretty great too. Imagine if we didn’t have one!

A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change- because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it!

Feelin’ REALLY GOOD today!

I talked to my sisters about the gender thing, and they’re totally not freaked! This is a good, good day.

Had dinner with my dad and very, very gently broke the news that I’m questioning my gender identity.
