Sometimes the most radical thing you can do is tell the truth. . . Your voice is one of the most powerful tools that you have. That is why it is so emotionally destructive to be silenced, and so painful to be misunderstood. . . But then there are ways we avoid using our voice. Maybe you don't feel like you have anything of value to say. Maybe you don't expect your voice to matter. Maybe you don't know how to speak up, or aren't sure what to say. Whatever the reason, we owe it to ourselves and the people/causes we care about to use our voices to speak up, to advocate, to challenge, to affirm, and to teach. It isn't enough to have a seat at the table- what are you going to say when you get there? . . The truth I champion is our indisputable right to peace and pleasure. YOU DESERVE IT. Nobody else is owed your energy, your time, your gifts, or your wellness. I bring that message with me loudly, wherever I go. It is a challenge necessary for our collective healing and liberation from oppression. In a world that constantly devalues our humanity, truth is radical. It isn't always comfortable, but gives us the bravery to bring a microphone to the table and take up space for what we know is important. . . Thank you to the @theccnyc for creating #culturecon as a space for us creatives of colour to have real conversations about art, access, and community. Our voices were strong, and we will continue to speak up. For truth. For liberation. For the culture. . . Shirt reads: Women don't owe you shit. (Which is also true.) #catchfeelings

I decided to become a psychologist because my friend decided to become a psychologist. True story. : But first, some background. : I grew up admiring my sisters for pursuing careers related to their talents. Unlike them, I wasn't sure what my talent was, so I entered college “undeclared," and filled my schedule with random classes. : I stumbled upon psychology, liked it, and eventually majored in it. : I graduated college without a clue about what I wanted to do, so when a friend told me about his plans to go to graduate school, I applied to the same program the following year and got accepted. : Guys, THAT'S how I became a psychologist. : There's this misconception that each person MUST have a “calling." Not only is that belief untrue, it can hinder growth. If you're one of those people struggling to thrive due to a belief that “one day, it'll come to me," then you've likely been waiting for some arbitrary sign to tell you what to do, and you've avoided taking career risks due to fear that you'll make the “wrong" choice. But the longer you're in that state, the worst you feel for “falling behind" your peers. : Truth is, there's no “perfect" career for you. It's not mandatory that you “always knew" what you wanted to do. Some kids discover talents or interests that were REINFORCED enough that careers were born of out them, but it's not what happens to ALL or even MOST people. : For me, what started out as a seed of interest, grew into a tree of passion. I didn't know that I was going to fall in love with psychology as much as I did until I studied it, practiced it, and grew confident as a psychologist. : If my friend hadn't mentioned psychology school, I could've also stumbled into Law or business. 🤷🏻♀️ Maybe one day, I can still do those things, and I can become passionate about them too. : Moral of the story: Passion for something can be GROWN, and it's normal to have interest in multiple fields, but you have to pick one to start. : Photo: @steen.machine

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

6 Ways To Handle The Stress Of Earning Your Degree From Your Childhood Bedroom

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

It's definitely not easy, but it's something so many kids are struggling with right now.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.

Of course, this has caused widespread speculation that Swift has begun to re-record her masters.
