Carissa Moore gets REAL

Carissa Moore gets REAL

I love Carissa Moore. I really do. The thing I love most about her is her honesty. She’s real. This ESPN interview is a great read. In it she’s open about her struggles with food, weight and body image, rather than trying to curate a perfect public persona. Sharing your insecurities with a large audience through the …

Six Feet Under- Everything Ends

Six Feet Under- Everything Ends

Everything ends. This we know without question. Yet it’s a truth we seldom look towards. We avert our gaze and attention any which way but towards that which we know is inevitable. Death.

Why LADIES Skate!

Why LADIES Skate!

I really  love this clip because, even though it is titled “Skater girls”, it actually features WOMEN skaters talking about why they love skating, and overcoming stereotypes and judgment to feel free and empowered. I love watching females (and males) of any age rip, and it is wonderful to see young girls today going for broke. …
