Weekend Links 09.26.2014


Sorry for forgetting weekend links last week! I was in a low spot-- my depression hit me really hard last weekend. I'm thankful it waited until the weekend to get into full swing though-- apart from feeling ill, I was able to function fairly well. I think these things get worse when the seasons change. I'm trying to recover from dealing with the nonsense of last week. It's awful to be so sad you want to sleep through an entire day. But here I am trying to get back into my normal, happy, loving head-space.

How do we create a new generation of young ballerinas who don't get taught body-shame alongside dance? One teacher took on the challenge and has great solutions for teaching ballet without making girls hate their bodies.

This video about an Asian girl with a "White Guy Fetish" is brilliant and turns the exotification of Asians on its head.

An important, short poem that everyone should read.

Obvious to those of us in the Millennial generation, but tell those old timers that you've got the numbers to back it up now: we do, in fact, read the book when we want to watch the movie version.

Lourds Lane talks about the importance of finding your song.

I have adored Moziah Bridges of Mo's Bows since I first saw this stylin' 12 year-old wunderkind on Shark Tank: He now runs a $150k business!

Have you ever thought about the importance of who you're spending your lifetime with?

And a song for the weekend-- which I found because of Selfie.

  2. Oh my gosh, the "white guy fetish" video is really, really great and I think would be eye-opening for a lot of people--it's so great that you're incorporating social action into your posts! Sharing this for sure! (:

  3. I think Halloween is fun! Except for horror things. I like the candy and the dressing up and all that, but I hate scary things (even if it's a little ironic for Halloween). Do you like the horror stuff too? Or do you just like the atmosphere of Halloween?

  4. I know right! If you like that there was a webseries called "Gaytown" and it was a comedy/satire centered around a straight guy named Owen who faces constant discrimination and even silly string violence because he's a straight guy in a gay world. I recommend it although I don't think it ever came to a real conclusion.
