Conversation I overheard at work

  • Customer: How can you do this job (stripping)? Isn't it degrading having to take your clothes of for money?
  • Dancer: You're the guy that just forked out $300 for me to take my clothes off. Isn't it degrading having to pay that much before a girl who looks like me will take her clothes for you?

thank you very much<3

Dear mama,

You’ve been dead for three years and gone since I was five. I still rememeber our road trips to see Katerra in rehab and to Kentucky and other fun places. I remember you showing me how to put on makeup like a big girl but telling me I wasn’t allowed to wear it until I was big like you because I was a lady and us buying ice ream from that one super authentic road side stand in the middle of nowhere. You got peanut butter ripple and I got one scoop of blue moon and one scoop of strawberry. I remember how your hair used to always bounce and sparkle in the sun and how you used to smile and call me your angel and tell me how smart I was and how I was just like you. And then our road trips started to turn into what you called “medicine” runs. I always knew there was something wrong about where we went. You always came back quiet and secluded and acted strange. I always told you I believed you up until the end but mommy I always knew. I knew what you were doing and I used to cry to you to stop and you always used to promise it was okay and you would but it only got worse and then you lost me and bubby and I know even in your stupour it broke your heart. I ached for you mommy. I cried every night for years begging God to let us come home to you but he never did. And then I became so angry. I shut the world out. I hated you. I hated God. But mostly I hated myself. I blamed myself for what was happening. I should have been able to stop you and make you see what you were doing to yourself and our family. And then by the time I was 16, you were diagnosed with stage four cancer. It was too late and you knew it and deep down, so did I. I remember you calling me one night crying and begging me to make you better and I howled and cried because I had to explain to you that there was nothing I could do . I’ve never felt so helpless in my life mommy.. And then it happened.. I got the call from Katerra and that finally did it.. I broke. I couldn’t go on. After everything that has happened in my life, I lost my reason for staying strong and that’s just what you did. You kept me strong because I wanted to be just like you.. a strong independant beautiful woman who didn’t let anything get in her in her way. I became someone I still to this day don’t recognize. I quit caring about anything and everything for a very long time. But things got okay over time. They never got better but things became bearable. I graduated high school and it broke me once again because you couldn’t be there to see me. Even today, I think about joining you. I miss you mama. I mis you so bad. You missed so many things you should’ve been there for and it’s not fucking fair. There are so many people in this world that are so ungrateful for thier family and the things they have because they don’t know mama. They don’t know what it’s like to be where we have been. I wish I could be like that but I can;’t. I enjoy every meal I eat no matter how smaell, every time I open my eyes in the morning, every time I get to see bubby and sissy because I know the horrors of this life. I know what terrors lie in wait in the future,. I know I’m going to lose everyone I love and the thought alone is enoough to makes me want to swallow the medicine cabinet but I can never do that because you told me not to. You told me I can never be weak enough to take my own life. You told me because you knew I would listen and you knew how bad life really is. I want nothing more than to be three years old again and have you hold me in your arms and rock me to sleep in the rocking chair in the house in centerville. I want you back more than I want anything, and you would be so proud of me mama. I’ve become the woman you’ve always wanted me to. I strive for perfection and I fight tooth and nail to not become addicted to the demons I inherited from you. But that’s all I can do is try right? I miss you mama. I love you to the moon and back..

Dear Melinda,

We’ve known eachother for nearly six years and I’ve legally been your daughter for four. How wild is that? I don’t say it nearly enough but I love you and thank you for everything you have ever done for me. We have definetely had our ups and downs and we are really only now starting to really connect because of my own unwillingness to connect with you any adult figure other than my own mother and for that I’m so sorry because I knew that’s all you wanted from me. You have been there for me when literally NOBODY else has been and you don’t know it but I appreciate that unlike you will ever know. You are the most wonderful mother a daughter could ask for and someday I hope to make it up to you and help you realize this.

Dear Joey,

It’s been almost four months since we broke up. I can’t believe how time has flown. Last night I cried about you for the first time since you hit me that last time. I told myself I missed you and I believed it. But today I realized that no, no I don’t. I miss having someone to come home to. I miss having someone to kiss and do things with. But I do not miss having someone tell me I am worthless and ugly and terrible for wanting friends. Nobody has any idea what you really did to me Joey. Because of you, I can’t bring myself to trust anyone anymore because you were the last person I would ever expect to do the unthinkable. I want to though. And I’m trying so hard and every day I’m making progress. I gained all that weight back that you made me lose. And I bleached my hair back to blonde from red. I have lots of friends now who love me and support me too. And one day when I am ready, I’m going to spread these bruised wings and fall for someone new because you did not break me like you intended. I am stronger now because of you and I can admit that. You showed me that I do tend to accept the love I think I deserve. It hasn’t been until now that I have realized just what kind of love that is and just truly how strong I am. I don’t harbor any ill feelings for you. I only hope you realize what you’ve done and change for your next girl’s sake.

Dear Crystal,

It has been months since we have called eachother friend. I hear you’re doing better now. I know how you feel about me but just know as much shit as I have talked, I really do hope you are okay and got help for your problems. I really don’t understand what happened. One second we were on top of the world and the next, you’re trying to kill yourself because of a guy you barely knew and I had no idea. I guess that’s what life does huh? Everybody just builds their own little bubble around themselves and forgets to let people that love them in.. I regret not asking you more about your feelings. I had no idea just how bad you were off. I wish sometimes that I could go back and stop you and I from growing apart. It didn’t have to happen this way and I hate it. But I have also accepted that some friendships just aren’t meant to last and if you love something, let it go. I just hope someday you come back.

Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.

What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.

Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity. 

Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.

For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood. 

Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be. 

YES. Beyonce Gave Us SO MUCH LIFE With Her MTV VMA Medley.
