"7. Get a tattoo. Get five tattoos. Get another whole in your ear. You will still be able to get a job. Don't listen to your dad. Did you really want to be employed by someone like your father? Haven't you had enough judgemental old white men anyway? Get FUCK YOU tattooed on your hip."
"If I'm attempting to make something and I hit a creative block that's threatening to spiral into a bout of self-loathing, taking a few minutes to floss my teeth hits the brakes on that cycle and gives me the mental and emotional distance I need from whatever I'm working on to be able to re-approach it with a fresh, less critical eye."

"As a transfer student to Barnard, I had no idea how important feminism would become to me."
"My personal librarian was assigned to me, and I knew that she would be glad to help, and that everyone else in the class had either seen her or wished they had the time. I never thought I would be a burden for asking for help when it became hard to find information, and I certainly didn't think it made me any less of a student. Yet when it comes to going to a therapist, there's a lot more hesitation." (This was written by one of my personal students. ♥)
