I love the message in this song that celebrates all types of girls; whether it’s the girls who love to dress up and going out every night, the girls who love to stay at home with a book, the girls who love competing in sports or the girls that express themselves within their art, that all of it is amazing and it doesn’t tear other types of girls down, but builds these type of girls up that society tends to bring down. I definitely want to be like “Most Girls”.

Shoutout to the tall girls. 

Shoutout to the girls who knows that ordering a dress online might mean getting a semi-long shirt in the mail.

Shoutout to the tall girls who constantly has to hear “Wow! You’re so tall! Do you play volleyball/basketball/softball/soccer/tennis/every-sport-under-the-sun?”

Shoutout to the girls who love heels but wear flats because if one more person says “But you don’t need heels!” that person’s gonna get a heel up their ass.

Shoutout to the girls who have had guys say “I really like you, but you’re really tall, it would look weird”.

Shoutout to you, tall girls. Be tall and proud, rock that dress/shirt, and if anyone says you can’t date someone because of height differences, kick their short asses with your awesome heels.

as a 20 year old who grew up watching shows like boy meets world, sister, sister, lizzie mcguire, that’s so raven, and more, let me just say that disney channel today isn’t as bad as we think it is. yes, there was a period about three years ago where, let’s be honest, the shows sucked. however, in the past year or so i noticed a huge difference in the newer disney channel shows while i was watching tv with the kids i nanny for. let me explain:

good luck charlie: the first show on disney to introduce a lesbian couple who were the parents of the little girl’s friend.

KC undercover: this show stars zendaya who kicks major ass and shows little girls that they can be whatever they want, including strong and fierce.

liv and maddie: FIRST OFF, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT DOVE CAMERON, SHE IS PRECIOUS AND NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS AND PROMOTES SELF LOVE AND IS AN ACTUAL BALL OF SUNSHINE AND IS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT. in one of the episodes of this show, the characters stand up to a group of boys who rate them based on their physical appearances on a scale of one to ten. in another episode staring kristen bell, they stand up against reporters who only ask them questions based on their femininity rather than asking about the role of the amazing characters they play like they do with liv’s male costar. and then there’s maddie who stands up for what she believes in and never lets a male make her feel like she’s anything less just because she’s a girl who loves sports.

and then we have girl meets world: the sequel of boy meets world. what can i say, it’s a great show and the main characters learn from riley’s dad, cory matthews. it’s a normal show (similar to lizzie mcguire in a way that it’s based on normal kids who are just trying to get through the awkward phases of middle school) that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

i’m not sure what shows people are calling dumb from disney channel but maybe check these ones out for some good stuff. i know we all miss the old disney but these particular shows aren’t so bad.

The Birth of Mary, Queen of Scots:

On the 8th of December 1542, nearly a month after the defeat of the Scottish troops at Solway Moss, Princess Mary Stewart was born on Linlithgow Palace. She was the only surviving child of Mary of Guise and James V of Scotland. Unlike his father who had died in the battlefield, nearly three decades before him, James V died as a result of an illness

“There is no record that James ever saw his daughter, though he might have had time to do so before he was laid low by severe illness.” (Porter)

James V died six days after Mary’s birth, making Mary the first Christ Queen Regnant of the British Isles. She was crowned the following year, being less than a year old. There is a tradition that when James V heard of his daughter’s birth that he said “It came with a lass and it will end with a lass.” But this as Porter points out, given how ill he was, it is highly dubious that he was able to utter such coherent words. But for historical novelists, this makes up for good drama no doubt.

Mary, Queen of Scots as she became known became part of the ‘Rough Wooing’ –this was an aggressive Anglo-Scottish policy that was Henry VIII’s brainchild. He sought to have the Scottish nobles he captured during the battle return to Scotland with the mission to convince the Queen Dowager and the other nobles to his proposal of a betrothal between her and his son (then) Prince Edward.

At one point, when her father’s body wasn’t yet cold, Henry VIII attempted to invade Scotland and there was one man who firmly opposed this and this was none other than John Dudley who’s reputation hasn’t been so good thanks in part to his former allies turning against him when the going got tough following the Jane Grey fiasco and pop culture.

Before Christmas of that year, John Dudley voiced his concerns, saying that “seeing that God hath thus disposed his will of the said King of Scots, I thought it should not be to Your Majesty’s honor, that we your soldiers should make war or invade upon a dead body or upon a widow or upon a young suckling…”

When the King died, a man who continued Henry VIII’s aggressive policy under his royal nephew and new King was Edward Seymour, newly named Lord Protector and Duke of Somerset.

Somerset had no intention for diplomacy. As far as he was concerned, diplomacy was failing. The Scots could understand he meant business by only one way and that was through fire and blood. Pillaging and heavy artillery. Although this did the trick, planting fear into the Scots’ hearts, it also strengthened Mary of Guise and her allies’ resolve. She decided to stall and secretly sent her daughter, her companions, among them the well-known four Maries, her half brother (Moray, who would return shortly after), to France where she would meet her future spouse, the future King of France, Francois.

Mary, Queen of Scots has a lot of detractors and defenders and seldom any people in between. On the one hand you have this naïve girl who was well-educated, who loved playing sports, and dressed in men’s clothes for that, and was also very beautiful, and had received not a lot of training to be a ruler but more how to be a Queen Consort while she was in France, but on the other hand, you also have a girl who caught on pretty fast and who wanted to reconcile both factions of her country, Protestant and Catholic, and tried her best but failed. And then tried again, using conspiracy to oust her cousin Queen Elizabeth when she didn’t agree to reinstate her. And this last act of hers not only failed but ended with her being sentenced to death. This was extremely painful as her executioner botched it and it took more than one blow to finish the deed.
The truth is likely somewhere in between. Mary was a quick learner, well-learned, fashionable Queen, but at the same time, she was also tired after years of trying and having little to show for it except plotters at every turn who hated her because of her sex and religion and for refusing to give up. When she finally gave up, she tried to rise up but once again she felt defeated and sought her cousin Queen Elizabeth I of England for help and as previously stated, when she realized this was a huge mistake, she plotted against her and this ended with terrible results. She was much a victim of circumstance as of her own actions and rearing.

I´ve finally got summer vacation, so now I can draw stuff again! And since my digital art skills suck, it´s mostly just flat colouring on a picture I took with my phone =V=“ I decided to finally realize a design for a new OC I have been dabbling with this semester.

Introducing; Poppy Bubblegum AKA “The rollerskate princess”. Poppy is a somewhat hyperactive girl who absolutely loves sports that goes fast, and her favourite is rollerskates. She is 13 years old, 154 cm tall and her concentration isn´t all that great with things that go slowly. Her style is very cute, but simple so that she can move freely and run about like she always does. She likes the pop and kitch late 80´s – early 90´s look, think los angeles, venice beach, with pastelly, geometrical and asymetric prints, or palm trees and pineapples and neon colours. She is also really into tropical juice!

I haven´t really developed her profile all that much yet, but I am working on it! ^^” Hope you like her!
