And now it's time for random bits of GMS hairstyle trivia.

Mermaid Hair originated from concept sketches the GMS production team in Los Angeles sent to the GMS development team in Seoul for review. KMS liked the design so much, they asked if they could use it first, which they did in their Legends update.  It was based on a haircut one of our staff had just gotten at the time.

Wavy Mop and Bisk Hair were based on pictures some Basil Market members had posted of themselves.

For Royal and All Stars hairstyles, Bed Head Hair is the most popular for male characters, followed by Wild Tangles then Overgrown Hair.  Kitty Hair is the most popular for female characters, followed by Lively Waved then Muse Hair.

“Shorty, you got to be held accountable for the things that you do, you know what I mean. Don’t throw it all away for nothing. People love you because they see that you have something—you can’t. You got to show them that you won’t change as a person, but you’ll grow through experiences.“

P.S. While you’re at it Raek, can’t you drop some new Wu-Tang? Some of us are pretty hungry… 

You can wear Nikes and feel like the best version of yourself. But you can have on a Zara pant, right? And a girl walks in with the Celine version, and you feel like shit. That is the problem. I’m talkin’ about us, the new slaves, the people who love fashion. I’m talking about us, you know? ‘Cause I’m a slave to it. I love it. I love it! I loved it since age five, when my mama brought me to a discount fur spot. She asked me what I like, and everything I liked was too expensive for us.

#TheVictoryColumn is a monument in #Berlin, #Germany. Designed by #HeinrichStrack after 1864 to commemorate the #Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War, by the time it was inaugurated on 2 September 1873, Prussia had also defeated Austria in the Austro-Prussian War (1866) and France in the Franco-Prussian War (1870–71), giving the statue a new purpose. Different from the original plans, these later victories in the so-called unification wars inspired the addition of the #bronze sculpture of #Victoria, 8.3 metres high and weighing 35 tonnes, designed by #FriedrichDrake. Berliners, with their fondness for giving nicknames to buildings, call the statue #Goldelse, meaning something like “#GoldenLizzy”. #droppinknowledge

To me, it's simple. Either you are or you aren't.

You are A) Going to do it or, B) Not going to do it.

And whatever that thing is, commit to it. There are times when multi-tasking is necessary. But if you say you’re going to do something, do it. It’s just that easy.

Say, you want to join a group. Singing, dancing, sports, Chess Club, whatever. Do it and follow through. Don’t be that punk that sits in the front row with their feet up acting like a badass, like you’re too good for it. Because 99% of the time, you’re not.

Is this a little dramatic to be relating to the Chess Club? Possibly. But everything translates. Do you think that somebody is going to hold your hand all the way through life? Reminding you that you need to sign this paper work, or call this person, or be a good parent? No. There won’t be.

Because it’s all relative. 

And if you are somebody that’s like this, don’t complain when suddenly nobody wants to put up with your bullshit. Because you know what? You brought it on your damn self. And you have nobody to blame but that person staring back at you in the mirror.

Today in class people were talking about institutionalized racism and the discourse was basically a cluster fuck of finger pointing at certain races. every example of racism was a state sanctioned policy/program. I swear the room went silent when I pointed out the state’s monopoly on things like the police that obviously (in stop and frisk specifically) targeted minorities because there isn’t a repercussion for their actions, I pointed out that they will get paid because their agency is backed by force. That silence that fell over the classroom was the sound of thinking of a different perspective and that is beautiful.
