The Iconic Carmen de Lavallade
Still dancing, teaching, and slaying at the age of 83.
5:45 a.m. and you’re still a prick.
I wish I could sleep like this little guy.
“More girls should join boys’ teams so it could be a tradition and it wouldn’t be so special.” - 13-year-old Mo’Ne Davis, the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series in its 68-year history, the FIRST girl to throw a Little League World Series SHUTOUT. Her fastball? 70 MILES PER HOUR. #throwlikeagirl #BlackGirlsROCK
Jimmy writes his weekly Thank You Notes!
We crashed into diets,
pushed extremes to extremities and
programed ourselves into insanity
but the magazines still called us deformed
so we carried on scarring our skins,
and crushing our ribs—
trying to fit into expectations
defined by those who can’t appreciate us.
I want to be beautiful, but tell me,
because I’m on the verge of thinking
that enough is enough,
how much more mutilation do we need
before we could finally fit in a box?
