“1. Kiss that cute boy at the party, but push him away as soon as he puts his hand up your skirt
2. Smoke a cigarette for the first time, and make it your last
3. Don’t straighten your hair for a week, see how many compliments you get
4. Blast your favourite song even when your mum has told you off for playing it too loudly. Enjoy those 3 minutes of pure happiness before she pulls the plug out.
5. Say yes to going out, you’ll have something to tell your grandchildren about
6. Paint a sun on a rainy day, then stick it to the window
7. Eat the cupcake, you have better things to worry about than those 300 calories
8. Do yoga and meditate as often as possible
9. Stand up for yourself. Someone called you a slut? Someone said you are ugly? Someone said your art work was boring and dull? That is your cue to fucking stand up for yourself and make them speechless
10. Don’t respond to a group of males whistling at you. You’re a human being, not a fucking dog
11. Leave your headphones at home, see how much you are missing out on because you’re always lost in your own thoughts
12. Carry hand sanitizer and bandaids in your purse
13. Wear sexy underwear, loads of leather, a fur coat, heels and purple lipstick. Do it for yourself, not for the hot guy next door.
14. If you’re having a bad day, cry, scream, punch a pillow, throw stuff around. Then you pick up the mess, including yourself and get back up.
15. Smile, be polite and get on peoples good sides for starters
16. Stop waiting for your crush, stop dressing up for the bar man that serves you a free drink or staying extra hours at work for your boss. Stop impressing these dickheads and start impressing yourself.
17. Laugh until you cry, and when the girl sitting next to you in class tells you to shut up, laugh even louder.
18. Do whatever feels right in the moment, laugh, cringe and regret it later. Repeat.”—insical (via insical)
“Don’t trust charming. Why? Because the boy who can talk all the right words knows it too well. Things like boys and love aren’t meant to be practiced like that, it should be a bit awkward- it should be raw.”—The best advice I’ve ever received. (via fawun)
The new Veronica Mars movie is unsatisfying in part because it continues a juvenile approach to a love story that’s no longer about adolescence.
As usual, Monkey See’s Linda Holmes does not get it.
"To trap Veronica — who is a feminist landmark figure for a not-insignificant number of women — in this story is a little … depressing. She apparently went to law school, but that’s over. She apparently built a relationship, but that’s over, too. All she really wanted was to go back to high school, work in her dad’s office, and be with the guy she once called a "psychopathic jackass" because at last, all her dreams came true and he’s literally perfect?”-Holmes.
If you think Veronica’s story, on the TV show or in the movie, is only about her relationship with Logan, then you are missing out on a lot. Veronica does not remain in Neptune only because of Logan. She does it because being a detective is her calling. She’s not being trapped. She is finally accepting herself for who she is.
And by the way? It’s not like she’s just going to forget what she learned in law school. That degree is probably going to come in plenty handy as she continues working cases.
