Battle In The Bathroom: The People Vs. The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh


From the blog of @andreadisaster.

For years, there has been a war in the women’s bathroom of the Carnegie Library, main branch. Women, girls, ladies, chicks, gals, whatever we’re being called these days, have been writing, drawing, ranting, scribbling, scrawling, doodling and defacing the walls of the bathroom. These walls have been painted on a weekly basis back to basic shades of beige or pea soup green. Unlike the New York City Clean Train Movement, the spotless walls have not slowed down the scribblers in the slightest.”

Nerdy girls can’t be tamed.

Spent the day in Pittsburgh with my friend.


We took a bus to Oakland in the morning and were supposed to sit in on a History of Jazz class at Pitt. As it turns out, the class was rescheduled for tomorrow without our knowledge so we didn’t get to go. We spent a few hours in Oakland instead, while we waited for his mom to get off work. We walked through the Heinz Cathedral, and looking up at the beautiful stained glass windows was the most surreal thing. I recognized a lot of the names and pictures that were on the glass (thank you, AP US history!)

Also, I went in the Carnegie Library for the first time ever! I could live there and be happy, it was so nice. I love that “One good thing a day” project that they have there. I picked up one of those little books and I wanna do it. :3 I also found some nerdfighters had taken over the “Tell us what the library means to you” sheet that was hanging up.

It’s kind of light so if you can’t read it, it says: “DFTBA” “not forgetting to be awesome” “Whoever you are, I ♥ you! DFTBA!”

Also here is the full sheet (my favorite comment is the people watching one because omg I do that):

Then we went to a bookstore and I picked up a copy of Franny and Zooey by JD Salinger. Even though I had a nice time, I don’t think I would want to go to Pitt. City living is just not for me (holy goddamn traffic, I almost got run over like twice) and the housing there didn’t seem very nice, at least from the outside. I didn’t get a tour or anything.

Today was a pretty nice day, though. :)

Welcome to Pittsburgh! :)
