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). Yes, not EVERYONE has the same ‘type’, not everyone has the same taste, but you have to admit, there are some features that most people find appealing or attractive.

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.

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.

Hi! Today I am gonna be discussing my thoughts on this magical, fantastic and surprising piece of literature which has hit our planet like an asteroid.

But these are my thoughts. My thoughts that I will later convert into a proper review.Read More »

That Awkward Silence

Hey guys! Today I want to talk about awkward silences. This has nothing to do with books, in fact, there are no awkward silences with books unless your book talks to you (if so, please tell me the name of that book). Every silence with a book is comfortable but that is not what this is about! Generally, I just don’t like them.Read More »
