"Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else, but just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes."

Skinny shaming is not okay.
Let’s be clear about that from the start. Anyone who thinks it’s okay to comment on or mock a skinny girl’s body needs to recognize his or her own internalized prejudice. Skinny shaming is body shaming. It’s harmful, and it’s real, and we need to stop it. But, no, it is not the same thing as fat discrimination.We’ve noticed an uptick in this misdirected comparison. U.K. musician Natalia Killsrecently vented on Twitter, evidently angered by Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” lyrics (“Yeah, this one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club / Fuck those skinny bitches”). Says Kills, “Horrified I’m considered a bitch for not being overweight.” She went on to defend those who prefer slender bodies, concluding, “Larger-framed women need to stop bullying/victimizing girls with small frames.”
