objective beauty – a mini rant

As a plus-sized, brown girl, I have spent some time thinking about the concept of ‘objective beauty’, and well it has either left me confused, frustrated and sometimes just disappointed. There exists a certain set of physical features that appeal to most humans, say a skinny waist and big boobs on a girl or a six-pack on a boy. Blue eyes. Long hair. Cheekbones. Sharp jawlines. Fair skin (to a certain extent, at least).

never letting go of ‘do what you gotta do’

Heyo! Today, I’m going to be reviewing, or rather just discussing, my thoughts and emotions on The_Blonde‘s series ‘do what you gotta do‘ (or more commonly known as the art thief fic), which is available to read on ao3, and is essentially a two-part fanfiction not named after Kanye’s infamous ‘famous’ but rather on the original- Nina Simone’s ‘Do What You Gotta Do’. The name of the two stories are “i can’t blame you much (for wanting to be free)” and “the part of you they’ll never see (is the part you’ve shown to me)“, which are controversially longer than usual book titles; however, these were also the reason I first fell in love with the story.

Satpura ’17

Hey guys! Guess what’s new? Well, practically nothing except… I went on a trip in January, from my school, to Satpura! Now, a lot of you may not know where Satpura is. It’s in India, if anyone was curious. In central India, to be exact. Since that is clear, let’s get on with the post. So, I went with my classmates to this gorgeous nature reserve where all you could see were trees and greenery and beautiful sunrises.

The SIMS Book Tag!

Hey guys! So, I saw this tag on JesseTheReader’s channel and I was completely sold. (By the way, if you are not subscribed to Jesse already, GO SUBSCRIBE HE IS AWESOME!) I did not know the SIMS existed until some time ago when I started watching Dan and Phil’s SIM series. I still don’t play it but I LOVE WATCHING OTHER PEOPLE PLAY IT! Seriously, I could and have watched those videos all day long…

I am pretty sure I would stop doing any work whatsoever if I actually start playing it myself
