“we teach girls to shrink themselves
to make themselves smaller
we say to girls
“you can have ambition
but not too much
you should aim to be successful
but not too successful
otherwise you will threaten the man”
because I am female
i am expected to aspire to marriage
i am expected to make my life choices
always keeping in mind that
marriage is the most important
now marriage can be a source of
joy and love and mutual support
but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
and we don’t teach boys the same?
we raise girls to see each other as competitors
not for jobs or for accomplishments
which I think can be a good thing
but for the attention of men
we teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
in the way that boys are
feminist: the person who believes in the social
political, and economic equality of the sexes”

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

only a nascent trying to harness huge fire
out on the beach in the darkness starting bonfire
so gorgeous, a man might cry
burning trees in the basement, start a cool fire
feel my heartbeat racing, baby you’re on fire
so gorgeous, a man might cry

back in paris you told me you were suicidal
it’s not a vacation if i lose you to the Eiffel
you’re gorgeous but you can’t fly
a hidden admirer sent me roses white as fire
we took our handfuls it was war, flower fighter

After all the time
After you
Had you seen me with someone new
Hanging so high for your return
But the stillness is a burn

Had I seen it in your eyes
There’d have been no try after try
Your leaving had no goodbye
Had I just seen one in your eyes

I can’t give it up
To someone elses touch
Because I care too much

Could you tell
I was left lost and lonely
Could you tell
Things ain’t worked out my way

Wish the best for you
Wish the best for me
Wished for infinity
If that ain’t me

Give it up
I can’t give it up

I can’t give it up
To someone elses touch
Because I care too much

Give it up
I can’t give it

the.newsroom

after seeing dumb and dumber it is hard to picture jeff daniels as a news anchor
but he totally kills it in the newsroom
his sharp wit and fast talking character will mcavoy is unbelievable
with a cast featuring emily mortimer, dev patel, sam waterston, olivia munn and alison pill
the show is absolutely amazing
there is a reason people say the best shows are on hbo
the newsroom is a prime example

” And yeah, you, sorority girl. Just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there’s some things you should know, and one of them is, there’s absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, number 4 in labor force, and number 4 in exports. We lead the world in only 3 categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined. 25 of whom are allies. Now, none of this is the fault of a 20 year old college student. But you, nonetheless, are without a doubt a member of the worst period generation period ever period. So when you ask, “what makes us the greatest country in the world?” I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. Yosemite?  We sure used to be. We stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reasons. We passed laws, struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbours. We put our money where our mouths were. And we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and we cultivated the world’s greatest artists and the world’s greatest economy. We reached for the stars, acted like men. We aspired to intelligence, we didn’t belittle it, it didn’t make us feel inferior. We didn’t identify ourselves by who we voted for in our last election. And we didn’t… we didn’t scare so easy. We were able to be all these things, and to do all these things, because we were informed. By great men, men who were revered. First step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one. America is not the greatest country in the world anymore.”

 I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

Oh I was made to live without you
But I’m never going to understand, never understand
Oh I was born to live without you
But I’m never going to understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier that’s going down

I thought it over and drew the curtain
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself
And I’ll only consider it as you played the hallelujah
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

If you’ve been made to serve the master you’d
Be frightened by the hokum and be frightened by the night
Could I’ve been made to serve the master
Well I’m never going to understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier that’s going down

Hold me in your everlasting arms
