So these days when I’m having a bit of a low self esteem moment ie whenever I see a picture of Miranda Kerr or open a magazine I take a second to think "can this almost flawless looking human being do any of the following - clone dna, make transgenic organisms, use a dna sequencer or attempt to identify the mating system of a threatened species using genetic analyses" the answer (thus far) is no. Sure, I will never look like Candice Swanpoel, even on my best day, at peak fitness, covered in makeup, with my hair done by a professional, wearing sucky-iny undies under sympathetic lighting… but I am capable of all the above, which is kinda cool right? Plus I get to wear a lab coat. I dont see Miranda Kerr wearing no lab coat!
Ok. I read 50 Shades of Grey. That shit is fucked. For starters E.L James has the most IRRITATING habit of using the same word over and over and over and over again in the same paragraph. And its always some weird word that doesn’t fit in with her super simplistic language making it even more annoying. Oh and the storyline is boring and predictable as fuck. Then there’s the absolute PATHETICNESS of Anastasia Steele.”Sure honey you can ruin my career and cover me in bruises and be completely suffocating I find it sexy”… PLEASE! females have poor enough role models as it is. There was one chapter where this dodgy creepy Grey character covers her in hickeys so she cant sunbake topless because hes so possessive. If Matt did that to me I would kick him in the face and leave. Oh and Id also ensure that I sunbaked absolutely naked for the duration of the trip. I am really, really annoyed that I wasted a day of my life reading it. Seriously furious.
In other news.. theyre making Life of Pi into a movie!
“We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving. We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins. We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive are our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, ‘You can be anything,’ and we heard, ‘You have to be everything.’”—Courtney Martin (via chrisanthemums)
