I get to meet Amy Tan! And I’ll ask your questions!

I get to meet Amy Tan (author of Joy Luck Club and more) and be in a master class with her! I get to ask questions and was wondering if anyone here on Tumblr had any questions they wanted me to ask her. It can be about anything. I’ve only read two of her books, so if people had questions about some of her others that’d be cool.

I promise to report back!

So, Tumblr, questions?

For I have always been a seeker, a dreamer, and a ponderer on seeking and dreaming…
Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night.

Natural Hair places in Houston/Katy?

I’m currently transitioning my hair, and I don’t want to use my same salon I went to for my relaxers. However I don’t know where to go now. I need a trim badly, and I’m going to want someone I trust when I eventually chop off my straight ends. 

Does anyone know of somewhere to go in Houston or the Katy, Texas area? Also if anyone else is transitioning/has a hair care blog, like this! I want to start following some for inspiration as I keep going! Thanks

Always learn poems by heart. They have to become the marrow in your bones. Like fluoride in the water, they’ll make your soul impervious to the world’s soft decay.

Landlines pour moi?

I wouldn’t be against someone who has already finished Landlines by Rainbow Rowell gifting it to me. I have like $10 in the bank after paying for my apartment, food, and school expenses. Also, the library doesn’t have it and they said it won’t come in, even if I request it, in time before I leave for college again. I just want one fun, new read.
