What makes me so happy about this is that she isn’t telling you you must love your body or that you are obligated to. She saying you have permission to. And that’s important, because there are a lot of reasons why people have trouble with self-love.  But the idea that you aren’t supposed to love your body, that you aren’t allowed to for whatever reason, needs to be crushed. If you can’t love you body right now, if your body causes you pain or disphoria or distress, you aren’t required to love it. But you are ALLOWED to. You are entitled to the chance to make peace with your body, if you ever reach a point where you are ready to. No one else should be trying to stop you.

Sometimes I see or read things, and I didn’t realize that I needed them until they are two GIFs of Nicki Minaj and some amazing commentary that come across my dash and I instantly burst in to tears and feel a weight lifted off my chest.

Totally intrigued by Dallas Theater Center’s summer production of Les Miserables directed by Liesl Tommy.   The story is reset in modern day with an awesome racebent cast.

Check out the highlights video here!

  • My sister: Aren't you done yet?
  • Me: All this is for one class. I have four others. College is hard.
  • My sister: Yeah, that's probably why I didn't do it.

When you see me show me your bachelors, show me your masters. That’s the best thing you can do for me, as my fan.

YAAAAASS NICKI. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSS

i haven’t found the source video yet.

I love the way Nicki encourages people with education. I’ve seen her ask about report cards on Twitter and tell young people to bring their C’s up to B’s and B’s up to A’s. And this quote is too awesome. ❤

slowly-drifting-awayy said: If you went on an interview for a social work position, and they asked what are your weaknesses what would you say? I am also an aspiring social worker at NYU, I am going to be an undergraduate senior in a week and i always think of what I should say for that question. I don't wanna sound like I have problems, I would try to come up with a witty answer?:/ just wanting to know if you'd know what to say haha thanks!

I think that’s a pretty personalized question, and usually a pointless interview question, since people are not going to be completely honest in the “what’s your greatest weakness” question.  No one will say,” sometimes I get really sad and don’t want to come to work”, or “I have a tendency to hate my coworkers”. 

I guess my answer would be that I have trouble networking, because I’m an introvert—  but I’ve taking public speaking courses, developed my interpersonal skills through education and effort, and I try to always start up conversations with others.  

I think whatever your weakness is, you just have to demonstrate what you are doing to improve on it.

Anonymous said: So I'm an undergrad looking at grad schools for social work or counseling - and I have no idea where to start. I heard about needed to do GRE's, but IDK when I should do those if I want to go for Fall 2015 admission into grad school. And I have no idea how to find a good grad school and I'm nervous and worried.

You know.  Other people might disagree, but I just read the mission statements, looked at curriculum, pricing, and ranking and decided what was best for me.  I don’t believe that you have to go to the school with the ultimate reputation, with the big name.  I believe you go to the school that will work for you. In fact, I’ve read the experiences of many social work students in Ivy league schools and my experience at my state school in the south as actually better.  This semester is the first time I’ve ever had a class with people I didn’t like, and that was just the first day…maybe it will get better.

My university didn’t require a GRE for social work.  

In the end you will get an education, and it’s the effort that you put into that education and the work you do outside the classroom that really matters, not the school, in my opinion.  Because as hard as you try you don’t know if you will like that school once you start, you don’t know if your professor will be apathetic, or clueless.  What you know is what you want to get out of it, and what you are willing to do to get it.
