What does it say about me?
This Changes Everything is new in theatres and should be required viewing for all women, girls, and anyone in the entertainment industry. Tom Donahue's discussion of the lack of female representation behind the camera is well-structured, compelling, clear, and concise. Though it doesn't necessarily tell us anything we haven't been hearing for years, it’s (hopefully) still enough to get people listening. It reiterates that men outnumber women in film in almost every department and, while the Me Too movement has pulled many peoples' heads out of their asses, we still have a long way to go before the representation on a film set matches the demographics that represent our society.
We’ve all been there. Tucked under our covers, peacefully asleep like a sweet cherub, when a nightmare creeps in.
I have had moderate to severe acne since I was 14. It has become an intrinsic part of my identity and often dictates the way I interact with the world. To my chagrin, it also dictates my mood. When my face is covered in pimples, I am overtaken—possessed by the insecurity monster. This monster makes me act out, rage, and react in ways that a normal 29-year-old woman does not.
I have always been a jealous person.
The year is 2002. I've just started the eighth grade and am shy and awkward and wear my hair parted down the middle. I love my bright blue track pants and wear a retainer that I proudly display every time I smile.
