There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound. Diana Cortes (via sidebraids)

nyc nostalgia.

i had a not-so-good bagel this morning (seriously why is it so hard to get bagels right outside of the new york metropolitan area?), and it really made me nostalgic for nyc.

i have to say that as much as i love it out here (and as much as i know that we made the right decision in moving), i’m really missing nyc this week - specifically - musical theater (i’m dying to see hedwig), good bagels (obviously), and most of all, my friends. i have some great friends out here and i’m starting to develop some new friendships that i think will truly be wonderful, but that period when that connection is not totally solid yet is really hard. i miss the ease that developed with my friends in nyc -  our book clubs and dinner dates and the ability to get brunch with someone on a moment’s notice. i miss feeling totally comfortable and able to be myself without judgment or second guessing. but i must say, this would have been much harder without gchat and facetime and the norm of checking email every 5 minutes, so thank god for that.

tl;dr: come visit me and bring bagels please!

Inches? I thought we were rating them on hotness.

Jaclyn’s post is amazing and important, and all of you should read it right away, but I also just want to add that it made me think of this scene.

I’ll tell you what I’m tired of hearing? That somehow or other we’re too emotional when we talk. You know, when we raise an issue, we’re too emotional. Well, I am emotional… It brings tears to my eyes to know how women every, single day are working so hard and are getting paid less. It makes me emotional to hear that. Then, when I hear all of these phony reasons — some are mean and some are meaningless — I do get emotional. I get angry, I get outraged, I get volcanic. Sen. Barbara Mikulski  on the gender pay gap and whether she’s too emotional about it.
