Rapunzel

Trying to return to LJ

Hey there! I'm Annie, Asian-American, and 20 years old. I've been away from LJ for a while, over a year, but I'd like to return to it since it's a more text-oriented blogging platform (I've been spending a lot of time on tumblr). I'm hoping to find people who will comment occasionally and incite interesting conversations about practically everything.

I'm studying to be a high school English teacher, so I care a lot about the arts, social justice, and education, and I'm particularly interested in how we can utilize hip-hop pedagogies in the classroom. I identify as someone who actively works to dismantle systemic oppression and am particularly focused on the intersections of identities like race/ethnicity, sex, gender, sexuality, ability, etc. I like having sex-positive conversations about consent, sexuality, (non)monogamy, and kink. On a less big-idea level, I love music, writing, food, my family, and my boyfriend, who has been a part of my life for over a year now. I'm a little all over the place, but I'm a pretty laidback person who likes meaningful conversations, so I hope I can find some new friends to add :)
