I've started exercising again. I know, I know. I hate New Years and it's new yous, but this isn't like that.

I ate meat accidentally on Wednesday. I was with a party who hadn't realized there was meat hidden in a dish. I was mortified when it was discussed afterward and it seemed everyone knew-- apart from me, although it was announced that I was a vegetarian in the beginning. Everyone seemed to smile at me...

I love YouTube. It helps me keep up to date with art news, watch the latest fashion shows, has video essays on history, race, politics and feminism. Though, it has an ugly side-- from privileged, mysognist YouTubers to commenters who police women's bodies to plain assholes. Here a just a few unappealing titles: 15 Things... Continue Reading →
