“confidence is not a crime. It does not mean a girl is a bitch or a slut, or thinks she’s better than you. It just means that she likes herself. And personally, I don’t wanna live in a world where any girl with healthy self-esteem is labeled a whore, or where you have to dislike yourself to be considered a nice person.” –Tavi Gevinson

I don’t know much about Tavi Gevinson yet but stumbling across her TED video sure made me want to take the time to learn. I’m a huge TED freak. I have that APP on every gadget I own and Tivo the show too. I can’t get enough of those amazing talks. I was lucky enough to stumble across her TED video while on TED watching another talk.
I knew her name from my fashion interests but never took her seriously since she was so young. Boy was I wrong to do that. She gives me hope. I thought most all teen girls now a days just wanted to be some vacuous porn star with big fake boobs or, god forbid, Snookie. Then I see this adorable girl who actually has a brain & artistic style. I wish I was 1/2 as together as she is when I was her age! She must have an amazing family behind her that supports her education and artistic endeavors. How lucky she is for that too!
Below is her TED Teens video. I want to only post positive things on my blog and this girl fits right in.
I stumbled across this story on CNN and was so happy to see this amazing boat was saved. It’s a shame how irreplaceable pieces of history like this get lost over time.
It’s a crime that there’s not a Hollywood History museum here in Los Angeles with items like this in it. I know Debbie Reynolds tried to open one with her amazing collection of props and costumes but she couldn’t get it accomplished for some reason I do not know. What a great tourist attraction this would be. Something our economy desperately needs too!
Below is the entire story from CNN:
(CNN) — The historic vessel which provided the setting for Humphrey Bogart’s only Oscar winning performance has been resurrected from the scrapheap by a movie-loving Florida couple. READ FULL STORY HERE
