Baking in my Bathing Suit

I bake in my bathing suit and often do other ridiculous things.

Do not try to be pretty. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just ‘pretty.’ You have galaxies inside your head, darling. You were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky.

American greatness (the new Manifest Destiny?)

francismcrobot:

As much as I dislike Taco Bell, I won’t mock their breakfast taco. America grew to span a continent - we’ve won wars, been to the moon, led the world in science and technology. And if we want to put bacon/Fritos/corn syrup/Red 40/disgusting amounts of salt on everything, who will stop us? This is the 21st century and this is our new Manifest Destiny.

This is what the guy I married thinks about…

He certainly keeps me on my toes :)

A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, [it is] an obsession about female obedience.

Always reblog. 

Understanding this concept is probably the only reason I know longer have weight issues. Instead of thinking that I should be thinner to look nicer, I’ve got it in my head that thinner=more compliant and over my dead body is that ever happening.

Please say this out loud every time pictures in magazines make you doubt your beauty. Please, please, please!

We’ve been taught a woman’s body will cause men to sin. We’re told that if a woman shows too much of her body men will do stupid things. Let’s be clear: A woman’s body is not dangerous to you. Her body will not cause you harm. It will not make you do stupid things. If you do stupid things, it is because you chose to do stupid things.

Victorian Christmas card, wishing you Peace, Joy, Health and Happiness.  Victorians were very interested in natural history, which may explain this unique illustration.  1880.  (via)

This is my ideal Christmas card, in every way.

Sometimes it feels great and turns out terrible.
Sometimes it feels terrible and turns out great.
Feeling inspired is not necessarily a requirement for getting that shit done.
But it’s a nice feeling to have when you’re getting that shit done.
It’s good to turn writing into a discipline.
So it feels slightly more bad when you stop writing than when you are.
Because sometimes it’s going to feel really bad.
Because writing is hard.
(But it also feels good and is worth it, or you wouldn’t be doing it, I hope.)
Revision is often harder. So relax! 
It never has to be perfect the first time.
It never has to be perfect the first time.
Or even the second or third.  Or sixth.
Powering through rough days should make you feel capable and proud.
But the days you can’t don’t make you a failure.
One word typed is always one more than you had.
So don’t feel bad if it’s the only word you wrote today.
No word is truly wasted.
You likely learned something from sentences deleted and shelved.
You might not know what yet, but you’ll find out.
Stop comparing yourself to other writers.
Seriously, stop comparing yourself to other writers.
Some people write fast.  Some people, not so much.
Some people outline.  Some don’t.
Some people write in order.   Some don’t.
Some people revise as they go.  Some don’t.
It’s just their writing process.
And your writing process is yours.
You don’t have to justify how you make words to anyone.
All you need to do is make words.
Make words.

Courtney Summers is my queen.
