Giving up on girl hate is the best thing ive ever done tbh im so much happier all the time
Let’s play a fun game called “we’re just friends but I’d fuck you if you asked”
I am not good at making confessions, so this post is for my love, Lauren.
This little hard working girl has accomplished so much in the past couple months. VSA, National Merit Scholarship, marching band (color guard) leader, starting senior year, great grades in school, taking French 2 (w/o taking french 1!!!), wonderful guard performances, and lastly getting her first interview! I am so proud of her and I know she is going to do great! There is absolutely nothing to worry about because what is there not to like? I am so happy and excited for her to take this next step in her life. Now onto applying to Vandy and becoming a student there!!!! She’s even turning 17 soon and our 9 month anniversary this weekend! Lots of surprises coming your way!
I understand that this past month has been very rough between work, school, band, and neither of us having a car, but just you wait. All of this waiting will pay off and we can finally go places without begging others.
My best wishes go to buttsincorporated as she finishes her senior season of marching band and pushes on to her Winter Guard season which we are both very excited for as well. Keep up the good work Lauren, I love you.
confession monday: im bi
I may not have any special talents but I can recite every word Groot said in guardians of the galaxy
if i ever misgender you or use slang (bro, man, gurl, dude) that makes you feel even slightly uncomfortable please tell me because your gender identity and comfort is more important than any word i may use to refer to you
it’s a metaphor, you see; you put the textbook in front of you, but you don’t give it the power to actually teach you anything
what others call a rebellious phase I call the sudden realization I don’t deserve to be treated like garabge
IT HAS BEEN SAID
Sending a big “FU” to the corporate side of the fashion industry.
As an increasingly successful fashion blogger, I have been targeted by several brands, large & small, one of which is quite a large corporation.
Because I am undermining a very important part of their money making system.
Today, the fashion industry is split in half.
You have Women’s fashion & Men’s fashion.
You will find designers here and there who produce androgynous designs but for the most part, the industry (brands & corporate companies) want designers who either design Men’s wear or Women’s wear, and follow a very gendered structure. Everything from the tailoring to the materials has to be specific to the binary boy/girl gender system.
This is why you can’t find feminine style’s of clothing tailored for the average males body type in any department store, thus creating a “mens” & “women’s” division.
Every time I modify the clothing I buy in department stores to fit my body type and then model it for people to see, not only am I inspiring people to step out of the box with their fashion choices, but I am merging two markets into one.
Why is this bad for corporations?
More markets equal more advertising and marketing opportunities which ultimately leads to more sales and more profit.
When I successfully inspire people to be less mindful about if they look like a girl or a boy, ultimately I am inspiring them to go against the gendered market system that brands and clothing companies make so much money off of.
I have received several hateful emails, discouraging my efforts as a fashion blogger. I was even asked by a large corporate clothing company to STOP buying their clothing and modifying it to fit my body type. They stated that by doing so, and sharing it with my audience that I was creating the illusion that gender did not exist, and that I am leading a bad example for society. …
A GENDERED SOCIETY CREATES A HUGE PROBLEM.
IT DIVIDES PEOPLE.
IT DISOLVES ANY & ALL ORIGINALITY.
FUCK YOU, to any clothing brand, company & corporation who’s got a problem with who I am, what I believe in & how I express myself.
Blue Stars 2014 production notes:
For 50 years people have been calling the Blue Stars home.
We think of Home as an extraordinary place, a place filled with special people and memories. A place to which you can always turn. It is where our heart is.
In 2014 the Blue Stars will look at the idea of home in its production of “Where the Heart Is.” The show will explore what it means to build a home, and how that environment shapes and forms the love of a family.
