    Why You Should Work For Women 👠

    I’ve recently decided I do not want to work for men anymore. Instead of dragging all my old bosses, let’s focus on the positives! Here’s why you  should work for women! She is more likely to be your mentor. Women get women and chances are, she’s been in your shoes and can share your point of view. Better yet, she can add to it because she’s already gone through it. Men and women have different experiences and you might be able to better learn from a Girl Boss (get it lol) because she can relate to you.  Also, there are tons of resources specifically for women! (ex: scholarships, bar associations,…

    It’s Okay to “Feel Fat” 💩

    We live in a society where everyone is offended by everything. Do you ever feel like you can’t say anything without someone taking it the wrong way, putting their spin on it, or straight up telling you what you should be saying instead? I feel this way. It infuriates me. So let me tell you what happened. The other day I was over a friend’s house and we were drinking vodka and trying on dresses. Because that’s what girls do. And I looked in the mirror and said, “I want to lose ten pounds”.    All hell broke loose. In my mind, I thought I was saying: Wow, I look…

    Go and Love Yourself 🦋

    I said something today and it broke my heart but I also know I need to accept it because it’s true. I’m used to not being supported. I’m used to it. And saying that out loud sucks because deep down, I know how true that is. It sucks because I’m used to not having literally anyone support me. Not a mom, a dad, a fairy godmother, nothing. That is a fact of my life. I’ve been trying to fight it and I’ve been trying to force people to love me, but I can’t. You can’t make people love you. You can’t make people believe in you. You can’t make people…

    Still NOT Getting A Job ☃️

    It’s almost 2019 and I promised myself I would have my life together by 2019. And that matters. Because this honey sets deadlines and she sticks to them, duh. Everyone has been telling me I need to get a job. All successful adults have jobs. Literally everyone has a job. One day I was walking down Sunset Blvd. and I looked at everyone and thought, “Wow, he has a job…she has a job…I bet they have jobs too. Look! A delivery man, that’s a job”. I was like a kid in a candy store realizing everyone had jobs. Except there seemed to be no candy for me. I quit my job…

    For All the Daughters ❤️

    For all the daughters who didn’t get hugs. For all the daughters who were made to feel small. For all the daughters who want mommy’s love and daddy’s success. For the daughters who feel misunderstood. For the daughters who don’t feel like daughters. For all the mothers who don’t understand their daughters. I’m starting a foundation. It’s going to be big and it’s going to be grand and it’s going to make all of this worth it. I am going to build a career where I give women everything I needed when I was young. Everything I need right now, today. For all the daughters, I got you. Your sisters…

    Baby’s First Sabbatical 👼🏽

    All this time I’ve been beating myself up because in my mind, I was supposed to be using this time in LA to get YouTube Famous. And as long as I’m not famous, I feel like I’ve failed. Except a year ago I couldn’t even admit that I wanted to be famous because my ex shamed me into thinking it was stupid. So how the hell was I going to become famous when I couldn’t even admit out loud that I wanted it? All this time I’ve considered myself a failure for not being famous yet, but what if I was doing all the real work in the background? I…

    Fuck Your Feelings 🌸

    I gave up my personality a long time ago. I think I just got so good at being pretty and making myself small. For my mother, for John* and his family, for Arthur*. I wanted their acceptance so much that whenever they said they didn’t like something, I got rid of it. And yes, I always get fed up and leave eventually, but by that point I’ve already given up so much of myself and I’m exhausted. And I’m depleted. I have no fucking clue who I am. I’m completely uninterested in meeting people because everyone I’ve really loved has either manipulated me or left. Or both. I’m tired of…

    Remembering Your Divinity 🧚🏽‍♀️

    The other day I had one of those LA epiphany moments you see on tv, and it was pretty amazing. I was driving down Santa Monica Blvd listening to Alanis Morissette- Thank U and I just cried, and smiled, and had the sun shining down on my face. And before that, the lady who did my wax (cause I’m fancy) told me I was beautiful and women would kill to have my body. And it meant a lot to me because she was actually really pretty. And skinny. And engaged. And the girl I wish I was. Rewind. So basically, I was explaining how fat and insecure I felt in…

    The Story of You 🌟

    Has anyone else been experiencing these post-graduation blues accompanied by an overwhelming feeling of not quite knowing who you are? I graduated from college 2 years ago. I have been an adult for two whole years and I still have no idea what I am doing. How do you know which next steps to take? Should I go to grad school? Move to NYC? Get a bigger apartment in LA? What am I trying to accomplish? How am I going to get there? It would be nice if I knew the answers to half of these questions; I don’t. But I do know what I’m trying to accomplish. I want…

    Self Love vs. Happiness 🌸

    Self-Love (n): regard for one’s own well-being and happiness. Self-love is not happiness. Let me say that one more time, self love is not happiness. I found myself in a bit of a funk recently and for the life of me, I could not figure out what was wrong. I meditated, I did yoga, I practiced little acts of self care throughout my day…and still, no happiness. How could I not be happy if I loved myself? I woke up every day with the intention of loving myself, and I acted with that intention. Or so I thought..
