I fucking hate the way fashion brands try to sort you into “body types” for their clothes. I have a pair of teensy Lucky cutoffs and I love the fit, so I’m looking at their website. I don’t think that my body is a far outlier, but none of these categories fit me.
- Under 5’4” in height (nope, I’m 5’7”)
- Slim arms and legs (yes)
- Small to average bust and butt (yes)
- Waist is slightly smaller than hips (maybe more than slightly, but yes)
- Body follows a straight line from top to bottom (no)
- Slim arms and legs (yes)
- Small-to-average bust and butt (yes)
- Waist and hips are roughly the same size (no)
- Curvaceous with well-defined waist (yes)
- Fuller arms and legs (no, my arms and legs are slim)
- Average-to-large bust and butt (no, I have small boobs/butt)
- Waist is significantly smaller than hips (yes)
- Curvaceous with less-defined waist (no)
- Fuller arms and legs (no)
- Average-to-large bust and butt (no)
- Waist is roughly the same size (or larger) than hips (no)
Apparently it’s impossible for me to be tall with a defined waist, but still have slim arms and legs and a small butt and small boobs. Fantastic.
[For the record, the pictures of the legs on the first three look IDENTICAL so don’t come at me with the slim legs/fuller legs business]
Holy shit y’all, I just totally made up an amazing recipe! I had leftover quinoa (cuz I’m crunchy AF) and I put canned pumpkin, evaporated milk (I had leftover and need to get rid of it before I leave next week; next time I’ll probably use almond milk), pumpkin pie spice, raw honey, coconut oil, chopped pecans, and flax seeds in a pot and came out with an amazing pumpkin porridge!
I have a package coming today and I’m refreshing the tracking page like a child. Some things never change.
Finals picnic supper of turkey jerky, apples, edamame rice crackers with spinach hummus, and dried mango. Could be worse I suppose.
I should study for my finals, but all I want to do is clean my house and daydream about the fact that I’m flying to see Hank in 9 days.
Just a friendly reminder to not put your change in the red buckets this year!

So while some of your nickels and pennies are going to hunger relief or “Christmas Assistance” just know that a large portion of your donation is going toward lobbying governments worldwide for anti-gay policies - including an attempt to make consensual gay sex illegal.

"If you blame Native American communities for their poverty, remember that the entire continent was stolen from them.
If you blame Black American communities for their relative poverty, remember that Black Americans were stolen from a continent, trafficked, and enslaved for nearly 300 years.
Tell me again about how your family ‘started from nothing’ when they immigrated. Didn’t they start from whiteness? Seems like a pretty good start.
The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy. Tell me your proud heritage, and I will show you the violence that made it so."
