"Forgive. Forget. Fake it. Chin up. Wear lipstick, make lists, make sure your voicemail isn’t full. Mix protein shakes, send timely thank you notes, sip drinks more slowly, stare at adults’ eyebrows, smile without dimples, develop perfect posture. Be gracious, be kind, eliminate self-pity. Look in the mirror and shift your internal monologue from ‘How do I look?’ to ‘This is my face,’ from ‘What the hell am I doing?’ to ‘This is my life.’ Capitalize your emails, read the news, walk briskly, stay focused, and never, ever let on that you are somewhat lost and sometimes lonely and so completely confused (and would someone please just let me know what it is I’m supposed to do next, where exactly I’m supposed to go–). Just keep going. Go, and do not stop."

In social issues class today our professor held up a black book and was like “this book is red” and we were all “no” and he said “yes it is” and we were just all “that’s not right” and he turned it around and the back cover was red and he said “Don’t tell somebody they’re wrong until you’ve seen things from their point of view” 

that speaks to me 

I want him to know he’s becoming the next Tumblr sensation

Anne Hathaway with The Princess Diaries producer Whitney Houston


Please tell me you knew she was a producer in this movie.


Girl yes, this and the Cheetah Girls.

Didn’t know either of that.

Whitney cared about uplifting young women and mentoring them. Her doing these movies was just an example of how much she cared.

It bothers me how this isn’t promoted, like everything else the world knows about whitney.

^^^^ there you go… Smh.

I did not know this I feel ashamed 😩
