hi there, anon. i didn’t realize i took a lot of selfies. thanks for the info. so, your question was whether i think i’m pretty. you already answered that no, i am not. 

and i have to agree, anon. i don’t think i’m pretty bc i’m not.

i’m fat.

image

i always have a double chin.

image

i constantly look like i haven’t slept in a week bc of my dark circles

and, i always look sunburnt. idfk why

image

i have this white line across my nose that makeup can’t cover up 

image

i have tons of wrinkles on my forehead. like what the hell? i’m 25

also, it’s the size of fucking texas

image

i still don’t know how to smile in pictures bc i hate my fucking teeth

image

my feet are flat. my hips are huge. my boobs are weird. i am covered in stretch marks. my voice is grating. my ears stick out two miles from my head. i am always fucking sweating and i’ve been asked if i was pregnant more times than i can count. 

so, you’re right. i’m not pretty. i can’t stand the way i look.

which is why it’s so fucking important that i post “a lot” of selfies. bc, anon, you’d better fucking believe that if i look in the mirror that day and don’t cringe, i’m gonna take a fucking picture to save that tiny little second. and GOD FORBID i show the world that i posses a little self love every once in a fucking while. 

TO ANYONE READING THIS: DON’T EVER LET SOMEONE MAKE YOU FEEL ASHAMED FOR LIKING THE WAY YOU LOOK—EVEN IF IT’S JUST FOR A SECOND. IF YOU LOOK NICE, YOU TAKE THAT FUCKING SELFIE AND YOU SHOW IT TO THE GOD DAMN WORLD BC THEY DESERVE TO SEE THE GOD/GODDESS YOU ARE!

that beard finally coming in? go ahead, bro. take a selfie.

you finally got that piercing you’ve been wanting? not really my style, but you’re fucking rocking it. take a selfie.

your boobs look awesome in that shirt? take a selfie.

you finally lose or gain that weight you’ve been working on? take a selfie.

your eyeliner look awesome? your new sunglasses make you look like  a celebrity avoiding the paparazzi? you killing that tux? you feel a tiny, rare level of self love? you always on a high level of self love? you just like your face? 

TAKE A MOTHAFUCKING SELFIE!

thanks for the question, anon. this one’s for you.

i thinks shes beautiful in my opinion 

This girl is my hero.

I think she’s gorgeous and that anon is a piece of fucking shit (probably jealous of how awesome/lovely she is). 

you are my hero.

okay but clearly anons face is too far shoved up their own ass because shes actually very fucking cute

I’ve got my second nostalgia recap at Entertainment Weekly! I recapped “Skin” early this week; here’s a snippet:

"Vanessa teaches Kennex another lesson in Respecting Androids 101 when Kennex tries to figure out where she was made. Dorian, who is always mildly annoyed at Kennex’s ignorance, says that instead of asking “Where were you made?” and “Who owns you?” he needs to say when and where she was born. She answers that Yuri is the man they usually answer to, but what also comes to light is a bond Vanessa forms with Dorian, who seems to have become a little bit of a big brother to her in this short amount of time. If only they could have had more episodes together.

…It also helped that the actress playing Vanessa, Ella Thomas, was incredible as a robot who has a “mind” that’s right on the cusp of being fully conscious. The way she carried herself, especially when it came to how she used her eyes and made her smile slightly hollow, was magnificent. Just like how Michael Ealy makes Dorian a believable character, Thomas gave Vanessa amazing realism and believability. I was completely sold.”

Molly Williams (fl. 1818) was the first known female firefighter in the United States. An African American, she was held as a slave, and belonging to the New York merchant Benjamin Aymar, worked on Oceanus Engine Company #11 in New York City in 1818. There she was used to be called Volunteer No. 11. Williams made a distinguished presence in her calico dress and checked apron and was said to be “as good a fire laddie as many of the boys.” Her work was noted particularly during the blizzard of 1818. Male firefighters were scarce, but Williams took her place with the men on the dragropes and pulled the pumper to the fire through the deep snow.
When asked, Williams always replied: “‘I belongs to ole ‘Leven; I allers runs wid dat ole bull-gine.’”
