Well, that’s not a very nice thing to say. And it’s not true. I usually consider myself “fat” but there are moments in my life where I try on a piece of size six clothing and it hangs pretty well on me, thank you very much.
I’m doing a psychology presentation about how television influences nutrition and I’m reading some very interesting stuff. This is the first time in a very long that a psychology-related thing hasn’t been boring the hell out of me. (Maybe because I chose the topic?)
My weight struggle started when I was around 11 or 12 years old—I literally think about food all the time and whenever I eat I literally gain a pound—because I constantly think about how fat I am, how much I don’t fit in certain clothes, how certain clothes are too tight on me, how cute clothing look really terrible on me because I’m not thin enough to look cute in cute clothing, how most clothing make me look fat, how most Magazine Asian Girls are just so tiny and cute, how I don’t fit into the schema of the Cute Asian Girl, how most people probably think I’m pretty fat, how much fatter I look in photographs, etc.
The worst thing about all this is how much I hate exercising and eating healthy. I think I might start walking and biking more and eating less again. I always feel guilty whenever I eat something that’s y’know, delicious.
Whatever. Sometimes it’s just better to forget about it all when you’re about to have a burger.

LOL CHUCK GETS SHOT WHILE BEING MUGGED TO THIS SONG. I honestly could not stop laughing for ten minutes. "Hey, was that Under Pressure?" I just found out it was the indie hipster cover.
“You raved and you bitched when you came home about the stupidity of audiences. The goddam ‘unskilled laughter’ coming from the fifth row. And that’s right, that’s right — God knows it’s depressing. I’m not saying it isn’t. But that’s none of your business, really. That’s none of your business, Franny. An artist’s only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else’s.”—Zooey Glass to Franny Glass, Franny and Zooey, “Zooey,” J.D. Salinger
“You ever think about how in, like, a Tom Hanks movie, everyone lives in a reality in which there’s no such person as Tom Hanks? Because otherwise, people would be mistaking the main character for Tom Hanks all the time? So either Tom Hanks doesn’t exist in the world the movie takes place in, or he does exist but he looks like someone else?”—Dan Wineman, quoted by Kottke. In fact, Julia Roberts’ resemblance to Julia Roberts is the basic plot of Ocean’s Twelve. (via crumbler) (via hellyeahtomhanks)
