Taylor Swift on Emma Watson’s UN speech and (last 2 gifs) on not “acting up” like Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears (x)
I wouldn’t call myself a Swifty fan, but watching her develop from a teenager into a more aware woman over the years has been pretty beneficial to see in the media, if only for the similarly raised, privileged white females who look up to her.

We Fell Asleep
I was already fading, my eyelids heavied and tucked in. I was curled on my side, the first time I’ve felt cold enough in LA in too long. I was wearing your grey sweatshirt as a nightgown because I forgot to pack sleepwear that night. You curled into a comma along with me, your weighted arm draped over my ribs. I had quietly fell into the black. I didn’t feel too far away before my body jerked me to come to. I jolted, awakening the both of us by my sudden spasm. You didn’t stir, you just tightened our space, brushing my hair away from my face and pulling your arm in to hold me closer. It was a small response, the littlest move, but in the dark in your room, your pull tugged me toward a feeling I had forgotten.
When we’re little and we have a nightmare, we instantly wake up our moms or dads to sleep next to. It’s the only way we feel safe enough to return to slumber. The need to have someone there physically, eased our minds into security. A comforting presence. This feeling of safety someone else can give you.
It didn’t occur to me how much adulthood is spent without that. We adjust to weathering moments- both hard and weightless, on our own. It’s not sad, really. Just a normal, natural growth. We just don’t need as much saving when we’re older. You can survive on your own. But, you woke up when I did. You brushed my hair behind my ear, you held me tighter, and pulled a blanket of familiar ease over me. No one has stepped into this role since I was a kid, recovering from my nightmares soothed only by my parent’s breath beside mine. Now it’s you.
This moment, the littlest nothing of a moment, was meant to be felt by me alone, and it became something we met together. That’s what all this is, isn’t it?
I shut my eyes and we both fell asleep.

Los Angeles-based artist and baker Christine McConnell (previously featured here) just shared a fantastic selection of truly monstrous baked goods over on Reddit.
Here you see a batch of waffle cones that turned into a nest of ferocious be-tentacled beasties, a terrifyingly realistic facehugger made of sugar cookies (glued together with caramel and glazed with milk, sugar and nutmeg), an adorable chicken pot pie (with beak and feet carved from carrots), a fiery Danzig birthday cake, tarantula cookies prepared like Girl Scout Samoas, and a spectacular birthday cake created for a Voodoo-Bayou themed party. The tongue of the snake atop the cake is a handmade candle.

“Yeah. I am attracted to things that Asian Americans have not done. My hope is that people just get used to an Asian face doing these sorts of things. And that makes it easier the second time around, and it makes it more likely. But you know, I’m realistic about that too. I don’t know that when my career is over, everything [will be] different. That’s certainly something I think about. Having said that, I don’t put that above my personal needs—they’re intertwined. I take personal glee in doing things that haven’t been done by Asian American men in film and TV." - John Cho (x)
Though I’m not sure how Selfie is going to be other than New Girl 2.0, I’m supporting it solely because they made an asian man, THIS particular wonderful asian man, the show’s main male lead.

I guess when you’re young, you just believe there’ll be many people with whom you’ll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.

Without fail, if I’m having a bout of insecurities- about work, my relationship, myself, whatever.. Nothing works at turning my mood around quite like dressing up, playing pretend, and making your OWN self feel good. Fuck the need to rely on a man or other people. You depend on you. All I need in this life of sin, is me.
