My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me."

"We can’t selectively numb emotion. Numb the dark and you numb the light."
I will love you
Not through the grandest feat
But through the brush of your hair as it falls out of place
Through the little notes in your briefcase
Through every kiss good morning and good night
Through a smile just so I can be a light.
In all the small things
The details and the chores
I will choose to love you
All the more.

no matter the place,

"If you’re anything like me, don’t you often wish that God would just “work His magic” with your heart and circumstances? But wouldn’t that be so contradictory to His relational nature that engages us through every part of the process?

It is where He most readily strips you of your ability to “hold it together” or “power through.” He allows difficulty so you have no option but to depend fully on His faithfulness and hold tight to His promises."
"I want to learn you.
I want to learn with you.
I want to learn from you"
