anonymous asked:

whaaaaat how do you all internet famous people get sent all over the world to do things, so spoilt and you diddn't even earn it.

What the shit. I never reply to these kinds of things but this has annoyed me. First of all, no ‘internet famous’ company is sending me anywhere nor are they/anyone paying for anything for me when I travel. So i’m not sure where you’ve pulled this idea from, especially considering I don’t even promote products on my Instagram for money or even contra - even though i’ve been asked to multiple times. 

I work over 60 hours a week to fund my own way around the world, I work really hard actually, so don’t go talking about ‘earning’ anything, when you don’t know shit. Thank you very much. You Dick.

I stopped having crushes after a while. Now I just latch onto famous internet personalties. I become obsessed, study them, pay attention to everything that involves them, read fan fictions, get bored and then move on to the next one. It's almost like I live vicariously through them. I've never had luck with the men around me so I've just accepted my loneliness. People don't pay attention to me and this is how I cope. It's like my evolved version of a teen celebrity crush but way more depressing.

Get out of my head? Hahaha, I relate to this in a real way. Also maybe we shouldn’t give up yet? There’s gotta be someone that makes our heart flutter the way our celeb dream boats do!

My brother made this awesome piece of work and barely anyone has seen it. Watch it and praise it, cause I wanna make it internet famous for him!

i knew this guy in middle school who when asked about his future plans, even by school counselors or teachers would without fail always chant,

KICK ASS, GO TO SPACE
REPRESENT THE HUMAN RACE

i wonder what he’s up to these days.

On getting exactly what I wanted and feeling terrified

I saw Brandon from HONY just down the block from where I live.

I was super excited, and approached him asking if I could get a picture of him. He was so nice, and agreed readily. I snapped him taking a picture of a young man in a wheelchair. He then asked me if he could take my picture. OF COURSE I agreed, anyone who knows me knows I love I having my picture taken.

After he took a few shots, he asked me “So what’s your story?”


I told him about my sizeism project, my blog, and the picture on tumblr that got a lot more attention than I thought it would. He said he was really interested, wanted to put me up on the blog, and to email him as soon as I got home with all my info. I did just that.

I expected him to post the CLOTHED picture of me, and link to my blog, so anyone who was interested could check it out.

So needless to say I was a little surprised when I saw my half-naked self on Facebook, getting thousands of likes every minute.

My first instinct was to burst into tears. It’s what I do when I’m too overwhelmed and don’t know how to feel. A million thoughts raced through my brain - but the most prominent one was

“This is exactly the exposure you wanted to spread the message of size acceptance. This is the perfect venue for you to share your story, and you should be honored.”

Then why did I feel like utter shit?

I knew that thousands of people were looking at my body. I knew thousands were judging me.

Still, I knew more were supporting me, sharing kind words, and getting something from what I wrote.

IT’S WAYYYYY EASIER, however, to focus on the smaller percentage of negative assholes rather than the overwhelming love.


I panicked. I emailed Brandon, asking him to please post the other picture with a little more of what I had to say, as I thought maybe that would stop some of the trolls. I didn’t know how to feel. Here I was, this woman speaking about loving yourself and accepting who you are, suddenly absolutely devastated because some random people I don’t know were saying nasty things about me on the internet.

Brandon was amazing. He offered advice, his support, and told me if I ever changed my mind he would delete the picture.

I took a few hours with myself to sit and think and absorb what was happening. Should I tell him to delete it? Should I delete my blog? Should I persevere and leave it up? 

Finally, I decided to leave it. I know what I am trying to do, which is help young women struggling with their body image and expose the hypocrisy and cruelty that is sizeism, is SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT whatever feelings I may have about myself.

I didn’t do this for attention or sympathy. I have people in my real life who help me with anything I need, I don’t need to look to strangers for that. 

I am doing what I’m doing in the hopes I can make a difference in a world that has so much cruelty.


But also know that I am human. I have my bad days. Maybe I will change my mind and decide I don’t want to be in the public eye, and everyone will forget about me in about 2 seconds.

But I hope I continue to gain strength from this experience, and get the chance to tell my story at a widespread level.

And I hope you know that to all who have been supportive, I love you.

The Definitive Guide To Making Your Pet Famous On The Internet

Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, two felines with no concept of wealth or celebrity, have already reached a level of success more lofty than the rest of us will probably ever see. Because the world has never been – nor ever will be – fair, each cat nets its owner six-to-seven figures of real American dollars, all in exchange for living, breathing and doing cat stuff.

But they didn’t make it on their own! They had a lot of help (duh, because they’re cats) from their owners – the real heroes of this story. They’re the ones devoting an unfathomable number of hours to bravely documenting the inspirational lives of their pets, armed only with smartphones and a deep sense of purpose. They’re the ones who keep their pets’ schedules. They’re the ones who sacrifice real jobs for their furry friends who don’t actually give a damn. This life could be yours!
