Just because you feel this way now doesn't mean...
Or even that it’s true.
I’m not on my “A-Game” this week and this isn’t an “A-Game” video, but that’s why I have to share it. I’ve been doing this personal art project over the last year centered around authenticity and stripping myself of judgments. I film/photograph myself in the moment-singing, talking, playing, in costume-and then leave it. I don’t edit, perfect,...
I love learning about what makes me uncomfortable....
Because then I can pinpoint it and change my actions. If it doesn’t work for you-investigate and redirect. That’s what I’m trying to do these days.
I think, at some point in time, you have to...
You have to say: Here’s what I want in my life. Here’s where I think I’m going. Here’s what I’m willing to do. Here’s what I know I won’t sacrifice, and here’s what I’m not sure about. Then, you do what you can do, when you can do it, where you can do it. Then, the rest is up to opportunities, choices, and, well…surprises. So,...
That moment when you realize you will always love...
We never stop loving those we’ve loved. I just hope that, even when committed to another, I am still loved back, in some small corner of the heart. Is that strange? Did I give back those hearts? Or did I keep a small part of them? And in particular, one.
I wish I could walk around like this.
Cycles. You've gotta get back up again, even when...
Lately, every day has been a struggle. But I will continue. It will get better. I don’t believe it, but I know it.
Today, I did five things that I couldn't have done...
When I feel like I’m moving slower than I want to, I have to remember that I’m making great personal progress. I will carry this with me into every part of my life and my future. This work sets the stage for me to accomplish those dreams that I have. I cannot go be future me without learning what present me needs to learn. And I was all kinds of awesome in the face of adversity...
My eye is twitching and it makes me giggle.
I’m about to go for a jog…and I’m gonna be eye-twitching the whole time. Watch out, neighborhood! Crazy girl in tie-dye is running through y’alls neighborhood.
madnaked-summernight asked: Ah, I sent you a message in response since I hadn't figured out how to do the whole "ask" thing. Anyway, the book's title is, "Einstein-A Life" by Denis Brian. I haven't read too much of it, and it's a pretty lengthy, but should be worth the read.
Gotye cover. My apologies for looking kinda strange and not as much like myself. Lighting was odd and I haven’t slept or showered today. No makeup and authentic moments FTW! *edit* Someone asked what kind of beer I’m drinking! Terrapin’s seasonal “Hopzilla”-in case you are wondering. Mmmmm…delicious.
A baffling, infuriating trend has cropped up in reviews of The Hunger Games:...– Jennifer Lawrence Is Not “Too Big” to Play Katniss (via usakeh) “if critics are going to pick on a 21-year-old woman for not being skinny enough for a fantasy film, why haven’t they been more consistent in their critiques of actors’ bodies? I haven’t seen much concern about Liam Hemsworth’s...
I will take you up on that offer.
Followers! I want to know, how to you deal with...
Ha, I made so many mistakes but I’m posting anyway! Regina Spektor’s Eet
I enjoyed the Hunger Games books, but all the merchandise surrounding the movie premiere leaves a bad taste in my mouth (no I haven’t seen the movie yet). I feel like it cheapens the story, somehow. It makes it into something you can consume, rather than something that teaches you. It turns us into a part of what it was against-mindless consumerism without thinking about the reality of what...
I'm a liar and a coward. And I'm so resentful!
If I could easily lose weight, in a healthy way, without triggering that thing in my brain that trips up my eating disorder, I would. Can I do that? No. I’d trigger something that would take my life away, because I just can’t diet like other people. It’s like an alcoholic. One drink isn’t a possibility. So maybe I’m brave for not doing it. But I would, if I could....
Right now I’m dyeing my hair the most intense red you’ve ever seen. LET’S HOPE THIS WORKS OUT
Short commute-i.e. biking to work or Trendy, more youth-centric neighborhood I don’t want to be lonely-but I’m on a budget and don’t want to drive 2 hours every day. Hmmm…. Also: I’m working at Whole Foods, now. I’m looking forward to it!
I'm pretty sure all of the mosquitos in Florida...
And now so many open wounds as a result of scratching. Mmmm scabs. Lovely!
Have you noticed that the most judgmental people...
I feel great today, despite the melancholy song.
