While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.


Autopsy and video show John Crawford shot from behind in Wal-Mart

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

Shout out to Al Jazeera straight up showing a video of their reporters getting tear gassed during a live interview of the Ferguson police chief denying that they are tear gassing journalists.

Videogames are great, they let you try your craziest fantasies

For example, on the sims, you can have a job and a house

Ugh, word.

Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.

Less than 5

For some reason, Elena and I thought it was a great idea to work out at 11 at night then spend the next two hours making a list of the sexiest dudes in the world and googling shirtless pictures of them………..

We need to be up at 6:30 for school and it is currently 2am………..



So there’s that article on FB about the difference between “hot” and “beautiful” women that a few people I know have posted and it’s making me so irate right now. It basically comes down to the fact that it encourages an “us” vs. “them” attitude, where wearing mini skirts and make up means you’re basically living a lie and that all us beautiful people are over here in our comfy sweaters with no makeup so we’re kinda like better than you. UGH. It says beauty is in the eye of the beholder but then goes on to list everything that is NOT beautiful: one night stands (can we say slut shaming), smokey eyes (the fuck?), and texts messages (seriously, wtf?). This is such a huge part of the problem, we as women start making value judgements of other women instead of celebrating the differences that are inherent in our gender. Don’t want to wear mini skirts? Cool, don’t, but don’t then turn around and tell other women that want to wear them that doing so is somehow an affront to being a woman. Let her do her own thing! Same thing for literally anything else. Don’t yuck someone else’s yum! (I took that saying from someone on tumblr). We need to empower each other, not tear each other down. In conclusion, fuck that bullshit article.


Geeking out over our new 3D TV, dinner and swirls at Aqui’s, standing in the front yard naming all the stars with our sky map apps….NOTHING in this life is more important than the love I have for my family. Absolutely nothing.
