More talk, less selfies, basically.
If your buddy has just told you about something really embarrassing that he did, or complained about her stupid boss, or told you about how his last apartment was a nightmare, do not say any of the following:
"I’ve got an even better one."
"Something even worse happened to me!"
Love this piece of advice. One of the things I can’t stand is people being competitive with each other even in the smallest of things.
But without discounting that statement, the issue is that these women have the absolute right and privilege to put whatever they want on their cell phones with the expectation that said contents will remain private or exclusive to whomever is permitted to see them just like their male peers. The burden of moral guilt is on the people who stole said property and on those who chose to consume said stolen property for titillation and/or gratification.
Out of all the articles I’ve read about this issue, I think this one sums up my thoughts about it the best. I hope many people get to read this one.
It’s a unique and ambitious endeavor, one that took almost a decade to get off the ground and that began before Jessica Chastain became a star. First-time director Ned Benson wanted to make a relationship movie from the perspectives of both a male and female character – though in fact it began as one screenplay, and when Chastain said it didn’t really represent her viewpoint, the filmmaker hit a eureka moment and expanded on his story. The rest is history.
Really looking forward to seeing this. It’s been a while since I watched a can’t-get-over-it-for-days film, and I’m pretty sure this is going to be one.
THERE’S POWER IN LOOKING SILLY AND NOT CARING THAT YOU DO.
I seriously love this quote by Amy Poehler I know that it isn’t the most powerful or inspirational quote that’s out there, but to me it means a lot. It’s nice to know that no matter how “weird” you are you will be stronger - by not caring - than those who make fun of you from their own insecurities. Not only does this help me to not care what people think, it also inspires me to carry on with my dream (trying to write books and screenplays). I know some of the stuff I do is silly and not the greatest works of art, but they’re me and I’m proud of my projects…
Moral of the story: be yourself and love Amy Poehler, she is awesome!
