All About That Plaid

Because you know
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid.

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I have a type or two.
The quiet, stoic type,
And those with glasses too,
But there’s one style style that I can’t help but chase
With all the right lines in all the right places.

I see the brother types workin’ that rugged wear,
And the comedic types
Sportin’ the casual flair.
They’ve got that tartan look, I can’t resist,
‘Cause every chest of theirs is covered
From the neck down to the wrist.

Yeah, the weather it tells us it’s gonna be cold outside.
They know, that’s why they wear those warm shirts only flannel provides.
And though sometimes they change and wear something a little more fine,
I love them best when wearing something with angles and lines. 

Because you know I’m
All about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid.
Hey!

They’re bringing patterns back.
Go ahead tell them they look like lumberjacks.
They don’t care, they know it works for them.
And I’m here to tell ya
Every inch of them is perfect from the shirt down to the socks.

Yeah, the weather it tells us it’s gonna be cold outside.
They know, that’s why they wear those warm shirts only flannel provides. 
And though sometimes they change and wear something a little more fine,
I love them best when wearing something with angles and lines.

Because you know I’m
All about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid, and argyle,
I’m all about that plaid,
‘Bout that plaid.

Hi! My name is Julianne and I’m a feminist. I’m not trying to disrespect Meghan Trainor at all because I really appreciate what she was trying to do, but body positivity should be for everyone! A lot of my treble friends were frustrated that Meghan’s song didn’t include them too, so I mixed it up a little bit. Let’s cut the crap about “skinny bitches”. Women should learn to love each other and themselves. I hope you enjoy it!!

And that’s how you do Body Positivity.

I remember when I was in 3rd grade, there was a picture like this in our book. Our teacher taught us about eating disorders that day. I remember that, later, a boy from my class came at me pointing at the picture and said “You think you look like the skinny girl, but you look like the fat girl”. I knew I was fat. He convinced me I was even fatter than I thought I was. Rarely passed a week in primary school without someone telling me I was fat.

In middle/high school, people around me were super concerned about me developing an eating disorder. Since I was fat, that was the only kind of mental illness I could have, right? I was diagnosed earlier this year (after a suicide attempt), at age 21, with anxiety and depression, which no one saw coming because they thought that, once I passed adolescence without an eating disorder, I would be perfectly fine.

My godmother has cancer. It’s not going well. Maybe the treatment would have been more effective if she had gone to the doctor earlier about her swelling arm. You know why she didn’t go until a friend of hers who is a nurse took weeks to convince her? Because she thought her doctor would say “That’s because you’re fat.”, which is the diagnose that she had been given for every ailment since she got heavier. Which my mum’s doctor tells her every time. “That’s because you’re fat”, without a second glance, a second check, even if the symptoms could be an indication of something more dangerous.

Fatphobia is fucking dangerous. In the case of my godmother, it may end in her death. Fatphobia fucking kills. Body positivity is not “promoting obesity”, is promoting humane care  and respect for fat people.

So, to all people complaining about how Meghan Trainor’s video is not body positive for all kinds of bodies, here’s a butt made of straws

All About That Space - A bunch of NASA folks, mostly from the new Orion capsule team, created this cover of “All About That Bass” dedicated to rockets and space exploration. It is just so adorably geeky…

Start your day off with a fresh new slate - a new you, a new train of mind, a new day. What took place at 11:59 pm yesterday has evaporated once the clock turned to midnight. Forgive yourself for whatever was done and learn from your mistakes. Today is a new day and in honor of this, everything is new. Do not think about yesterday. This is a new chance to make a change and to make a memory.

While you are getting ready, eat confidence for breakfast. Fuel yourself up with reasons to love yourself - reasons that you cannot see physically, but reasons you find on the inside. Feed yourself with compliments that you can’t see in the mirror. Be confident in yourself with your eyes closed because what you see in your reflection is not the slightest of what you have on the inside. Be hungry to love yourself each morning. Compliment your strength, for as much as you didn’t want to wake up, you woke up anyways.

The minute you separate yourself from home, treat others as if you are treating yourself. Be gentle with their soft spots and rush to make their day, for despondency is common and you are the light they want to bathe in. Compliment someone by simply giving them your company, for solitude provides acrimony and you are the medicine to bitter feelings. If someone is grouchy, do not base their whole existence on their mood. Don’t judge somebody on their bad day as if it is their fault their 24 hours became sour. If they are having a bad day, be a reminder for all the good days to come. Everybody has a bad day but it is not sinful to try and make it good. Treat others as you’d want to be treated on your soiled day.

Be attentive to things you have never seen before and be available to the vicinity outside of your comfort zone. Do something spontaneous, something that will make tomorrow more exciting. Be careless with a careful heart and never back away from a new opportunity. Be foreign in your own home today and perform healthy actions that you are unfamiliar with. Being comfortable with where you are is safe but eventually it will grow tedious. Today, make boring an irrelevant word to your lifestyle. Do something that will make tomorrow brighter.

Something may anger you today and once you are angry, halt yourself from making decisions. The future will most likely be ugly if you make choices while you are hostile. Breathe. Let the anger dwindle within you before you decide to take action. You are allowed to be angry, but you should also be smart. Make tomorrow a day with little regrets from today.

You will think of someone thoroughly today who has hurt you or you will think about someone who you miss. You may even see them radiating jubilance, as if their urge to leave you never took action. You will see them happy without you and your heart will shatter in dysphoria and you will wonder if your existence was ever enough for those who took pleasure in tearing you apart. You will try to ignore the feeling of betrayal and your eyes may water because they have seen disgust. You will miss the person who hurt you most and you will blame yourself.

Stop here and cry. Darling, cry yourself a river. You have made it this far and you are allowed to rest in tears. Feel your emotions and let them be drained out in your watery eyes and once your tears are wiped away, let your breakfast digest. You have unlimited potential and invisible value and even though you cannot physically see the greatness within you, remind yourself that believing will expose the invisible. Believe that your worth is beyond economy and I promise you, love, you will see it.

Work hard! People are always watching and you will be admired for your muscles when your mind told you that you were feeble. Working hard may not always get you an instant reward but working on your necessities with all of your might is a reward itself. Sooner or later, that relentless spirit you have to not give up will be recognized. No one can resist the sight of a good spirit.

You will mess up today and you may be embarrassed. Don’t be! Don’t be embarrassed because you are a human who made a silly mistake. Don’t be afraid to be human, to mess up frequently. Laugh about it! Humor always eradicates embarrassment. If you laugh about it, the mistake you made that was “so big” will dwindle. It’s okay if you mess up but if you hurt someone in the action, sincerely apologize. Let them know that you were in the wrong and in the deep depths of your heart, be apologetic. It is not your fault if they don’t forgive you. You forgive yourself and move on with the day. The day isn’t over yet.

You will always have time and it may not feel like it, but you will. If you are exhausted, reserve that time for yourself but if you are active, spend that time on the person you love. The person you love will never fail to provide good company and we should never avoid good company. Aloneness is a factor of despondency and to rid it in our lives, we need company who will only better our day. If that complacent company comes from your own presence, so be it. But don’t be afraid to be open for others.

At the end of the day, be proud of yourself. You did it. You truly and sincerely did it and you are to be proud of yourself. If today was a bad day, there’s a tomorrow. Bad days only remind you of the good. If your morning was spoiled and there was no way to recover, remind yourself that there is a tomorrow. There is hope. There are new chances. There are plenty of life lessons. Learn from your mistakes from today so tomorrow can be better. If you had a good day, keep doing what you’re doing and make sure that others are having good days as well.
