So far adulthood is just going grocery shopping, realizing you didn’t plan well or logically, going grocery shopping again, repeat ad infinitum. 0/10 stars, would not recommend

This post is still getting hundreds of notes a day and I am going grocery shopping again.

Don’t forget the laundry.  There is also a whole lot of laundry.

The Justice for Michael Brown Coalition share their list of demands.

There are gonna be SO many lawsuits….this town hasn’t been following proper police procedure for years, if ever. They weren’t even writing out reports after interacting violently with citizens (the chief told them not to, as long as no one DIED: I mean, my GOD what a good ol boys club). To handle a protest as badly as they handled, or rather didn’t handle it….to remove their badge name and number while ON DUTY??? You watch. Lawsuit city. There are gonna be a lot of bitter tears. They are LITERALLY professional jackasses. I hope there will be a million crowdfunded lawsuits taking out a million dirty cops.

"I delight in photographs
I delight in words
I delight in mixing both
To see what happens if they bend
My pity for the pure photographer
My pity for the pure poet
Is tempered by the responsibility
I have to three media
Whereas they to only one."

i hate that stereotype that all women lose their shit over shoes….and even more, i hate all marketing that supports this lame idea.

look, you jerks, i’m a WHOLE woman. i like a decent pair of shoes, but there are so many other things in this world that will make me flip my shit:

  • a good book
  • time with friends and family
  • benedict cumberbatch
  • a well written and directed film with good dialogue and talented actors
  • a delicious meal that i cooked myself
  • my favorite bottle of wine
  • that perfect golden hour light when the sun comes out just after a rainshower
  • a long road trip with the perfect playlist and my three kids singing along to their favorite songs
  • sex with the love of my life
  • art that makes me feel

So shut your mouth with that stupid-ass shoe business. gimme a pair of flip flops and anything from the list above

"A white man is promoted: He does good work, he deserved it.
A white woman is promoted: Whose dick did she suck?
A man of color is promoted: Oh, great, I guess we have to “fill quotas” now.
A woman of color is promoted: j/k. That never happens."

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

I had someone say this to me once and it completely rocked my world.

i need to memorize this for future discussions with my white friends and family who don’t seem to get it and call me “too militant”.
