Noooooo! Noell totally stole my “well, I’m off to the gym!” pose.

Guy just ran down the street toward me and said, “would you like to be a part of a real nice modeling video?” I wanted to say F off. But instead I said, “Oh. Thank you so much for your interest sir, but I’m going to decline on your offer.” Damn you, Midwest upbringing.

I think I’m over it, but the Loreal makeup app was the best thing that happened to me 5 minutes ago.

 Donate. Then pour ice water over yourself wearing an Italian sport coat and linen pants. Do it!

Just got a breakup letter from my dentist. Responded w/ emotional voicemail “YOU’RE the one who doesn’t take my insurance anymore. I tried to make it work! I TRIED!”


This is the best thing

This is my spirit everything.



Some tweets about #NMOS14 and people all over standing in solidarity with #Ferguson

I have hope.

It seems to me that if more women are writing YA than men, and your panels and lists are only full of men, then you must be working pretty hard to exclude women—or you aren’t working hard enough to diversify your reading. Of course, no one should tell you what you should read, even though you’re missing out on most of the good stuff, but if you’re informing what children and teens are exposed to, then it actually is your responsibility to read more widely, recommend a broader variety of books, and strive for more gender parity and diversity in your panels and author visits.
