Okay but this is actually an interesting thing. We just did “L’incoronazione di Poppea” (the Coronation of Poppea) which is an opera by Monteverdi and a few people in the opera looked up the history of this. Nero was married to Ottavia, and then Poppea came in and convinced him to leave her, so then he married Poppea, and that’s where the opera ends, but the history gets weirder. Poppea and Nero are happily married for awhile, and then Poppea gets pregnant. Now, there’s some arguments about what actually happened to Poppea, but it’s generally assumed that she and Nero got into a fight and he kicked her or hit her or something and she died and lost the baby. So Nero, being upset about Poppea dying, finds a little boy who looks like her, marries him, and basically pretends he’s Poppea. 
Creepy stuff.

Man I love (hate) the disparity between plus size and straight size marketing at Forever 21.

Sizes, like, 0-12???: “SEXY LEATHER SCHOOL MARM. WE LOOKED AT PICTURES OF COACHELLA, HERE YOU GO. THESE ARE GROUPED BY COLOR. WEAR A WEIRD CAGE DRESS, IT LOOKS FASHION. YEAH, FASHION.”

Sizes 12+: “lol here’s some shit for the next four months, at which point you will be back because we know you ain’t shopping for quality, enjoy The Blouse and The Sweater (you can’t wear a bra with either probably)”

Filed under ugh stupid and 1000% accurate but hey even though I'm a size 16/18 I don't want cute clothes fall 5 is great or whatever bullshit

13-year-old Mo’Ne Davis is about to become just the 17th female to play in the Little League World Series after pitching a three-hitter to lead her team to an 8-0 victory in a Mid-Atlantic Regional championship game. She killed it. 

I see a lot of killings and police brutality all over my dash and raising awareness. But I wanna share some positive stuff going on

Go off sis!

Been meaning to speak on this. But yeah, she’s doing the damn thing. There’s also an all-black team from Chicago that is looking to reach the finals as well, I believe.

She’s badass

Making a grocery list is hard when nothing sounds good. I have no desire to eat anything these days. Except for like, junk food. I want McDonald’s, and Panda Express. Nothing else sounds good. And I’m struggling with my binging tendencies.

And to boot, I feel kind of depressed. I dunno, I think my hormones are out of whack because I’m off the pill right now?

I might also just be intensely bored. I start school in a week and I think life might get better then, because all I want to do right now is sit and watch Netflix and hang out on pinterest. Although I have been practicing hair and make-up, so that’s good?

I dunno. I’m in a funk. I hate being in a funk. :(

I don’t know how to do a proper reply but thank you! And yes, being liked/followed by a BBW blog is like so violating and ewwwww I just feel so gross. :( I already reported one for harassment and we’ll see what happens with the other one. As long as they don’t follow me I’ll be fine. Ugh ew those blogs are gross. :(
