I believe that Malala is the futurrreeeee

June 29th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter


Like perhaps the rest of the world, I  am completely taken by Malala, the Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban for standing up for the education of young women, and survived. Since being shot, she has only been awarded the Nobel peace prize, the youngest ever to receive it, and is still working tirelessly as an advocate for human rights. AND SHE IS MERELY 19. She makes me trust and even long for the future. Most recently, her org started joined with Schoola, an online retailer of second hand clothes that benefit charities. It’s  a super simple way to help out with her cause. Just request a bag to be mailed to you, fill it with all the gently used clothes you do not wear. They handle the shipping, and a portion of the sales goes to Malala’s work. So simple. Ladiesssss I know you got some shiz you do not wear. DO IT TODAY!

on if we deserve to even Be

June 28th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Sometimes it’s like, oh noooooooo, is the earth going to fry up like an omelette, sizzle and implode, or is the moon going to suddenly shift  and move and tsunami us all into floating underworld corpses, or is an incurable virus going to spread through our vitamin water or is an asteroid going to smack into the planet, raining fire over all the fields and all of the Targets, worry / worry / worry, but then you see that these are are thing:

and then it’s like, no, you right you right, COME AT AS, ASTEROID, WE NO LONGER DESERVE TO BE.

Baby Ambassador.

June 26th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Anne calls Luke the baby ambassador, basically because he makes it seem like all babies spend 90% of their time giggling and gazing at you lovingly, and you know, never screaming ever at all. LUKE I CAN’T WAIT TO VISIT YOUR COUNTRY / IT BETTER NOT HAVE CHANGED.

SHOWER!

June 25th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Mackenzie and her lovely mom Linda offered to throw me a bridal shower. My first thought: YES PLEASE THANK YOU! Second thought: HATS!

Babies n family n gals came from near and far to watch me stuff my face full of mini quiches and freak out over cheese boards. Mack hung up quotes about love and marriage from my plays. I received a tower of Christmas ornaments. By which I mean, BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.

(a substantial part of) the problem

June 24th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

I don’t want to pretend to fully understand what UK’s vote to leave the EU really means for its countries, or the reasons behind deciding to leave, or stay. But: I read today that after the votes were cast and counted — google analytics revealed that A WHOLE LOT OF BRITS TOOK TO THE INTERNET TO GOOGLE ‘WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LEAVE THE EU’ and even ‘WHAT IS THE EU?’

AFTER.

THE VOTES.

WERE CAST.

I will be the first to admit I am guilty of this. But also, we all are. We the people of the internets. We get riled up about things before we even fully understand them, because it’s cool to get riled up. We click and like and share but don’t take ten minutes to think deeply about what it is that we are liking / clicking / sharing. We hop on bandwagons cause there’s free drinks inside and mini quiches and old books and people with fun hats and impressive IMDBs  BUT WHERE IS THE BANDWAGON GOING, EVEN? WE SHOULD KNOW. NOT YELLING AT ALL OF ENGLAND, YELLING AT MYSELF.

America Song

June 23rd, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Cause I’m proud to be an American

where at least I know that some of my representatives care more about doing anything in their power to further secure the safety millions than sojourning early to their beach houses for the 4th of July

and I won’t forget the ones who died

BECAUSE THEY WERE SHOT BY BOTH LEGALLY AND ILLEGALLY OBTAINED ASSAULT RIFLES

and I’ll proudly sit down

next to them

and give them hugs and snacks

Cause there ain’t no doubt it’s time to push and push against that hard wall, to start taking action, to adapt  with this increasingly terrifying world, and if and only IF we do, then

God Bless the USA

FOUR MONTHS FROM TODAY

June 22nd, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

Is it possible to form a memory before it’s happened? LET’S TRY. Four months from today, I will be panicking in the living room of some mountain cabin, surrounded by my bestest of friends and plates of untouched cold cuts,  taking in the horse themed decorations, focusing on them in hopes of focusing myself. I will step into a cloud dress,  float down the mountain on a soft sea of rosé towards vows / mini quiches / my love / the rest of my life. AHHHHH / IT’S REAL IT’S REAL

He knows.

June 20th, 2016 by Bekah Brunstetter

If there were ever a question re: whether or not Morrison knows the insides of my soul, for my birthday he gifted me with Cake, Dress, and House cookie cutters, and also two vintage Heinz Pickle Pins, first given out as gifts  to lure people to the Agricultural booth at the far end of the fair grounds at the 1893 World’s Fair, all of which he learned from an SAT question:

SO YEAH, HE IS ALLLLLLLL UP IN THERE.
