i tried to put the important stuff

we’re only 7 days into 2016 but I can already tell you that Hidden Figures will be the best and most important movie you see all year

These women, strong, educated, independent women- each in their own way- are what we should all aspire to be.

Their ability to ever back down, to stand for what they know is right, what they know is good, propels their story higher than any other I’ve ever known.

Katherine wasn’t afraid to take credit where credit was due.

Dorothy wasn’t afraid to take initiative and stand up for the work she had done.

Mary went through hell and back to make sure she could live her dreams

These women can do it. These women paved the way so you can do it.

liveblogging my baking attempt

ok, so it’s important to note that i have never attempted baking without a recipe

of course i’ve jazzed up a few dishes and made the recipes my own, but this time i’m really flying blind

so i don’t have many baking materials, so i just started throwing stuff that looked right in the bowl

it’s pretty bland, but i tried to put some honey, cinnamon, and oats in it because that was the taste i was going for

i wasn’t sure what i wanted to bake… but after a while it looked like a decent cookie dough so i guess that’s what i’m doing

Hey: it’s okay to be excited about the stuff you like. While its important that we continue to ask for better, more thoughtful writing from our media, please don’t feel you personally have to twist that critical eye into policing yourself for your own sincere enjoyment of the things that make you happy. It isn’t your responsibility to confess the sins of everything you consume; you don’t have to publicly flog yourself for enjoying something less than perfect.

Be kind to yourselves. It’s okay to take a break sometimes.
