Warnings Signs Of Exhaustion

Wellness of any kind is nothing to joke around with. Rest, relaxation, vacation is essential to your wellbeing. Otherwise you’ll burn out. Recharge, recharge, recharge. I myself am in need of a break. This is also how people end up on Snapped. Do any of these signs apply to you? How do you handle exhaustion? Via: Heartbeat Quote

East Side Middle School Alumni

Mischa Barton: Not only the O.G of The O.C, but the O.G of ESMS success. Heads up, our middle school was probably wilder than your college. When we went it was a floor and a half of an elementary school, the top half, on York between 77th and 78th. I can only imagine the affect it had on those kids. Anyways, I didn’t attend with Misha, but her sister Hania was a grade above me. Now this was when Disney Movies were it (Luck Of The Irish, Halloweentown, Johnny Tsunami type shit), we were hyped when we found out she was the star of A Ring Of Endless Light. Hyped. She was even cooler in high school, playing Marissa Cooper. I snorted coke with an $100 bill, because Mischa snorted coke with an $100 bill (allegedly).

Julia Fox: Known her since elementary school, she was in second grade I was in third. If you wanna know what our first interaction was ask her. She knew who she was from the jump, cartwheeling over in our cafeteria/gym, announcing herself, in a nobody…Julia Fox manner. As an artist she’s lived many lives and is now a burgeoning A-list actress, her breakout role being Uncut Gems. It wasn’t my speeding heart, or the clouds spinning, spinning, in the sky, but her commentary, “Jaquana you’re talking a mile a minute. I don’t know what you’re saying,” that made me realize I was about to overdose at fifteen. In the crevice of an inside outside park on 79th street.
We spent one summer hanging out with gang members and destroying Carl Schurz Park, where had I come five minutes earlier, I’d be witness to her throwing a dead pigeon on some girl badmouthing her. Legendary, she used a plastic bag to pick up the carcass of course. That chick had more bark than bite and left sobbing.

Emily Meade: Same grade, same classes. In seventh grade had plans to marry Heath Ledger (RIP). Her performance in The Deuce was superb, harrowing and underrated. What a complex character and an amazing show, one my mom and I loved.

Erin Yogasundram: started a popping fashion blog, a successful online boutique (ShopJeen) and has been humble the whole way through. Even after making it on Forbes 30 under 30, she still made time to answer questions regarding entrepreneurial pursuits. Now the wife/manager to influencer Kerwin Frost. When I think of Erin, square black framed glasses and junk in the trunk comes to mind.

Aliza Kelly: Cosmopolitan astrologer, always had a winged eye and goth vibe. BFF’s with Emily Meade then, BFF’s with her now. She was on the Spanish speaking side of school, so I never had classes with her. What comes to mind isn’t appropriate, high energy, chatty and wears tons of black is the best I can do.

EJ Dickinson: Friends for one year in the sixth grade before she transferred to Riverdale Prep. Cracked me up. Now she’s a senior writer for Rolling Stone.

Colby Minifie: Same grade as her sister Hayden. She was younger, so I have no memories. She is a star of Fear The Walking Dead and friend to former coworker Melody, who raves about her.

I’m the only black person to add to this group. Invalidating my experience with lies, when I don’t know you, is weirdo vibes and disrespectful.

Happy L’Wren Scott Day

Again wait until I post the full story next month to use these receipts. In honor of Melanie Hamrick’s birthday, this is now L’wren Scott Day. Again Mick and I have been dating for almost a year, there was no house purchased on her behalf. ALL HER STORIES ARE FAKE. She pays them to run stories she writes herself.

My gifts are a blessing and a curse. You didn’t see L’wren’s final moments, I did. When in a trance she took her life, when her soul fought to get back into her body, confused, distraught, weeping, realizing she could not comeback. When she floated over loved ones on her way out. She did not want to go.

Like I said the women Mick go for are well connected, well dressed, beautiful and have a star quality. Where between Melanie and her sister, Rachel, do you see any of those attributes? Neither come from money, neither were known before coming up off Mick Jagger, neither of them were principal ballerina, both of them have uneven faces. Youth alone is NOT enough to sway Mick Jagger, who can get younger and prettier. Via: Lwren Scott Archives

Pulling Up To Harry Potter…

With the squad, ready to scrutinize everything, EVERYTHING. Fuming over Daniel Radcliffe’s blue ass eyes (not green) and misplaced scar. Fix it Jesus! When’s the last time you did this? Were you pleasantly surprised, or disappointed? Via: Trippy Book Chic

A Place In The Sun

ME causally ruining your lives, ya tu sabes. Where I’m from being an evil bitch is a prerequisite, I had to learn be nicer. Now I’m only horrible to those who truly warrant it. A treat! Karma is a bitch after all, I mean look at me. Do you think I care? Photographer: Marc Hispard

Healed Soul For A Hurt Heart

Always do what is for the higher good, no matter how much it hurts your heart. A healed soul is priceless, trust me I know. I’ve had to shed so many nouns, and better has always come of it.

I gave many chances to make the right choice, I was a fan and seeing people who inspire you in a poor light sucks. Still I have a job to do. Raise the vibration. When’s the last time you made a choice that hurt your heart, but healed your soul? Is there a decision you need to make along these lines that you’re avoiding? Via: Street Writings
