Mamihlapinatapai (sometimes spelled mamihlapinatapei) is a word from the Yaghan language of Tierra del Fuego, listed in The Guinness Book of World Records as the “most succinct word”, and is considered one of the hardest words to translate. It describes “a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start.”
A quick intro I assume is on the more formal side, ya?
As yous can sees, my name is Erika. I like to learn about everything imaginable. It’s been a (bad?) habit of mine since I was about three years old. I am a straight edge kid. Always have been, definitely plan on always being one. I read as much as I breathe. I have an unhealthy obsession with Disney & practically live at Disneyland. My best friend is someone I’ve known for 7 years, but I have never met him in person. I love anything morbid/macabre; like seriously, I like some sick twisted shit. I write and illustrate (am currently working on a novel series). Music pumps my blood. I tend to lean more to the “rock” spectrum of it all, but I really will listen to anything. I thrive off of quotes, be they from film, literature, TV; you name it. I am very interested in film as well. I enjoy learning different languages, my most favorite being American Sign Language (hardcore shit right thurr). I collect lunch boxes. I like to play dress up.
I love happy endings.
I hate happy endings.
This is all I really care to write about for now, just to give you a tip of my iceberg.
Tumblr, I think you & I are going to get along famously :)
