I got a beautiful deck of tarot cards when I was in fifth grade or so, and while I don’t really consider myself a spiritual or mystical person, I do enjoy using them.

I was obsessed with her blog, the Danger Diary, throughout high school, I transcribed all her posts down by hand in my journal, and I actually wrote my college admissions essay about her. I noted in my introductory post that the name… Continue reading Badass Gang of Inspiration for 2017 (Pt. 1)
