Better than justice.

dove evolution and how I hate myself a little less

I had to edit a movie of myself on Saturday, and yes it turned out beautiful. Jess was an incredible videographer (I post this soon, I promise). BUT as I was sorting through all the raw footage, I was left feeling preeeeetty ugly. We had rented a macro lens, so every minute detail was larger than life. Very pretty at times.... BUT mostly kinda gross. Hairs and toe nails and fat is a billion times more hairy, toe nail-y, and fatty. I was trying to stay sane about it, telling myself that "NO ONE IS PERFECT" and "EVERYONE LOOKS DISGUSTING UNDER A MICROSCOPE", but needless to say, it was hard.

Watching this Dove commercial on beauty image helped kick me back into a more healthy self-esteem. Thanks be for You-Tube advertising. It kicked me where I needed to be kicked.

Amidships - In or toward the center of the boat.

This is my response to you being a ship in the sea.
You and I are in the middle of everything.
Everyone else is just part of a supporting cast.
Doesn't everyone feel this way?
They should.
Everyone should feel this singular.

Tube. Ing. Tubing.

Claire. Mandee. Chris.
Floating down whatever river is directly next to Lava Hot Springs.
I miss us all the time.

Lunchtime at the Apollo

I am currently eating a homemade cinnamon roll, licking the frosting off the back of my hands and thumb and rolling the soft sticky bread over my tongue until I get bored and swallow. Eating sloppy, for me, this only happens when I feel comfortable, like a little kid at the lunch table, making monsters out of sandwiches and trading apple slices for chocolate milk.
