About the Panda

I’m a grad student and (I graduated! Hello Master’s degree.) librarian shelving life experiences here and there. Welcome to my personal blog of rants and bitching and things.

My bffs call me “Panda.” However, my only relation to the endangered species is the “Amanda rhymes with ___” and that I’m pretty lazy. Also, I have a thing for black and white-ness. Simplicity. Yet everything in my life seems to be colorful chaos (barf). All that cheesy mumbo-jumbo aside, I have some pretty strong views on the state of pandas. I am anti-zoo and think we should stop trying to breed them.  The ones in captivity shouldn’t be there (no wonder they don’t want to make more babies. They know their children will be captives as well — ahem). Instead, we could use all our funds and efforts that have been going to a lost cause to support animals that are already thriving and have a chance. Over 3 million animals are put down in shelters every year. We have bigger problems to fix. Instead of adding more living creatures to this sad world we should try to help the ones already here.


Besides all these opinionated bits, I am a supporter of VHEMT (and an anti-natalist), a vegetarian-turned-vegan (veg circa 2010), and a Harry Potter fan (Go, Gryffindor!).

I have a matching-themed Tumblr that I (mostly) use to reblog others: Tumble with me. 

I’m a panda bear here. I’m a peacock on Twitter (Caw! Caw!): @Amandapandaduh
