So far, gf.

It’s amazing what you can discover in your school library.  You might even discover yourself.




I’m in love with this gif. Everything about it. The rain drizzling. The candle flickering. The colors. I love it.

This is how I would want my home to be set. A candle lit on a windowsill where the rain is always falling. I want to live in that kind of peace. 

Just looking at this gif and reading these comments somewhat calms me

this is somehow hopeful and cozy and calming and beautiful

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.


Smart Girls, we think you’re pretty brilliant :)

This shift in talking to our daughters is difficult, but important.
