Never Under Appreciated

Remembering Corey La Barrie

Death is the one thing that we know is ahead of us and yet the thing that is the most senseless and confusing when we are faced with it. A complete paradox,

Loss has always been a hard thing for me to handle no matter if it's been my great grandparents or an actor from my favorite tv show it's just something so unfair and so devastating. I woke up the other day to a text from a friend that simply read "wtf Corey died?!" I knew immediately by the spelling of the name who he was talking about and went to twitter to confirm the devastating news. My first thought automatically went to his close friend's people that I love and that I've watched online for years I cried for them and still have been doing that often. My thoughts then drifted to his family and how devastated they must be to lose someone they love especially so young. And then my thoughts were with my friends, we were all in this youtube community these people while some of them we don't know personally feel like we've kinda grown up together. And now I'm here thinking of everyone praying somehow someone will make sense of something that seems so senseless.

25 is too young. Period. I've never subscribed to the idea that "when it's your time it's your time" 25 is no one's time. This is a loss that is understandably felt hard.

If you are stumbling across this article and didn't know Corey I highly suggest you look him up on YouTube and read some of his friend's posts about him. He was the funniest guy in any room no matter the capacity of said room. He was the guy willing to help his friends anytime. He was the guy who made everyone feel welcome when they first came to LA. That was all very clear to me after reading the hundreds of posts of mourning. No matter how hard you looked you couldn't quite find another person like Corey.

Unexpected deaths are always some of the most challenging. Corey's family is going to face so many expenses with this funeral and so I leave you with this if you have any money to spare here's a link to his families go fund me page every dollar helps

Fly high Corey you are so loved and missed.

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
