this is from a real diary by a 13-year-old girl in 1870. teenage girls are awesome and they’ve always been that way.
James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
From the film’s IndieGo page:
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

these are songs to drown out that mean little voice in the back of our heads that we hear when we dare to look in the mirror, to give us the motivation to get out of bed on the days we think we can’t, and to empower us on the days we reign as queens and all we need is an anthem to kick doors down to.
it’s hard to stop starving yourself of the love and light you deserve so much when everyday you face a world that tells you you’re worth so little. the road to self-love is a long one, but where you are now is already miles ahead of where you’ve been.
please don’t forget to love yourselves today, okay? <3
what a long fucking week that was. congrats on finishing the week, everyone
