Girl Lesson #3

You were born with a paper lantern for a
heart,
the skin lit from within, the light in
danger
of going out.

Note. There are no specific spoilers for Gone Girl in this piece.

Gone Girl is a powerful bullet-train of a novel that takes a little while to get you settled in to your seat, but once you’re in and buckled up, brace yourself, because it doesn’t let you go until the final gripping page, and you’ll be hitting a lot of mountains and hairpin turns along the way.


“The idea that Taylor Swift is teaching her preteen fans to focus their lives only on chasing boys is completely false. She is actually a fantastic example of a strong, professionally-independent woman: she writes all her own songs, she’s smart, she’s creative, and she is completely unashamed to be who she is. We need to remember that being girly or wanting to find romantic love does not make a young woman weak or somehow inferior.”

Peace

Literally speechless.

I just tried the new CW show The 100.

Among the 6 main characters, there is a black guy and an Asian guy (pretty decent, right?). The black guy is even one of the two main love interests for the white girl (crazy!!).

THEY KILL OFF THE BLACK CHARACTER IN THE THIRD EPISODE.

THE ASIAN CHARACTER IS THE ONLY ONE WITHOUT A LOVE INTEREST.

I just…

I can’t.

lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain."
