the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people
I just want longer hair and a fatter ass and expensive clothes
“So three Black women in maybe two thousand pages of women’s magazines and all of them biracial or racially ambiguous, so they could be Indian or Puerto Rican or something. Not one of them is dark. Not one of them looks like me, so I can’t get clues for makeup from these magazines. Look, this article tells you to pinch your cheeks for color because all their readers are supposed to have cheeks you can pinch for color. This tells you about different hair products for everyone—and everyone means blondes, brunettes, and redheads. I am none of those. And this tells you about the best conditioners—for straight, wavy and curly. No kinky. See what they mean by curly? My hair could never do that. This tells you about matching your eye color and eye shadow—blue, green, and hazel eyes. But my eyes are black so I can’t know what shadow works for me. This says that this pink lipstick is universal, but they mean universal if you are white because I would look like a golliwog if I tried that shade of pink. Oh look, here is some progress. An advertisement for foundation. There are seven different shades for white skin and one generic chocolate shade, but that is progress. Now let’s talk about what is racially skewed. Do you see why a magazine like Essence exists?”

the whole “be a good person be positive” shit isn’t a joke or a thing i say for notes like i really genuinely think being rude and hateful are fucking terrible qualities and they’re really boring. hateful internet personalities are so exhausted and never should’ve existed. being hateful in real life is so corny like.. i seriously think being a good person is cool idc if i sound like a sesame street character lmao being mean for no reason is not fucking cool it’s embarrassing and pathetic as fuck lol! grow up! why do people act like when they reach an age where the tv shows they watch stop saying “being a good person to other people is important” that it becomes uncool or “babyish” like what the fuck how does it help you or anyone to not be nice lol grow up…
never trust girls who call other girls sluts

John Krasinski wrote what’s inside the card at some point prior to us shooting the scene for A.A.R.M. and it is a private message to his co-star and dear friend, Jenna Fischer. They are the only ones who knows what it says. She read it for the first time when he gave it to her in the first take we shot and I can tell you that judging from her emotional response, it’s really something special.
