Ageism: Part Due

The feedback I have gotten over and over again from mentors and colleagues is that confidence trumps youthful acne. Good thing I know how to perform.

I have been studying this Milano woman's look all week. I think it has echoes of Meryl's outfit below. My hair isn't as wiry, but it sure has the volume for this 'do. Psssh.

One theme of my clinical internship has been trying desperately to look older. A girl can only take the comment that she looks 19 as a compliment so many times before she gets insecure/pissed off.

I've weighed all my options to age myself (start smoking, tanning bed, act ignorant about technology-- "What are all these kids twittering each other about?") but none have done any good. I'm just going to keep channeling the movie therapists that I look up to, such as Meryl Streep in Prime.

Pashmina, chunky jewelry, glasses, awkward short hairstyle, horrified look. I can do all of these things! :/

in my next life

In my next life I would like to have a career as a NPR journalist and girl band member, like Carrie Brownstein in Wild Flag. Check out Wild Flag below and tUnE-yArDs in the next video. Both bands played at NPR's show at SXSW this past week.

tUnE-yArDs (how can you not love this??)

Lady Sybil's new pants

Princess Jasmine-- an icon for women's lib. "I'm sorry Rajah, but I have to go!"

Downton Abbey is filling the Mad Men shaped whole in my heart for period pieces.
