You dudes, it’s like been forever, huh? I didn’t really mean to abandon this blog, it’s just that I took a crappy job, and then I moved, and then I unpacked, and then I took a better job, and then I unpacked my workshop, and like… It took a while.
And I’m just starting to feel it. Maybe it’s the weather putting a little spring in my step. Maybe it’s some other stuff that I’ll eventually get the courage to write about. Whatever it is, I’m stoked to have a backlog of things to write about, and a schedule that’s regular enough that I can make some progress on the things I feel passionate about.
Speaking of things I’m passionate about, I don’t know if you know this but I’m pretty into this whole love-your-body stuff going on in the world right now. Sometime it’s really hard to be into yourself. It’s been pretty awesome to be fortunate enough to have role models like the Militant Baker out there kicking ass and taking names and writing blogs and a book. And that’s just one. Shit, just a few minutes looking at Tumblr, and you’re bound to stumble into some body positivity (try #effyourbeautystandards to start). And just when you think it can’t get any better, HuffPo interviews the CEO of Lane Bryant, Linda Heasely (and then fails to mention her name even once in the accompanying article… lame). Anyway, by the end of this interview I was like pumping my fist in the air, and stuff. Well, not really, but l in my head I was. Won’t you take a minute to check it out by clicking the picture below and watching the first video?
Thanks for coming back. Now, I just want to say how much I her diplomacy. Kudos for not getting up and saying “yeah! women should take over. we’re better! we have compassion!” and instead suggesting that maybe if men were in on the conversation, women wouldn’t find them to be our nemeses but our allies. For a woman who runs a “plus-sized women’s clothing company,” I liked that she said it’s not about size or gender. Just be a fucking decent person. And it’s ok to love yourself. Well, that’s what I got out of it anyway.
Welp, I just wanted to share this great interview and say hi! And I did. So back into the night for me, like Batman.
PS. Thanks to my awesome Mom for posting this on Pinterest for me to watch, in the first place.
