Pheew ! I’m so happy to be done with this ! So I couldn’t help myself and drew some more Teddy/Victoire..

I like to think that being raised with Harry, Teddy automatically tags along with the great tradition of Weasley gatherings, so he goes to Fleur & Bill’s house pretty often. okay. Maybe a little too often.

This is so amazing. I love connecting with her on this level. It’s such a Pan-African experience, and so it draws us closer. Most of us American Blacks o/ Caribbean Blacks, Continental Blacks etc etc have this or similar experiences with our hair being loved and cared for in this way.

Also. because it’s on Vogue White folks get some education about who we are which is a nice bonus since my White coworkers/friends don’t know some really BASIC shit about Black culture that is an everyday lived experience for us. I love that she pointed out and honored the differences in her white friend’s hair. Proof positive that you don’t have to fucking metaphorically cut the skin off our bodies and wear it to share culture with us. Yeah everything about this is on point.

So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.

The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female.
These were my two first mistakes about honesty: I thought it meant relentless self-flagellation, and I thought it could redeem everything. I believed there was nothing self-awareness couldn’t save. My readers taught me otherwise: They often read my self-awareness as meanness or self-indulgence or delusion. It didn’t endear me to them at all. It didn’t dissolve the flaws it confessed.
Leslie Jamison, Is There Anything You Did as a Writer Starting Out That You Now Regret?
The best advice I can come up with is this: Keep your living expenses LOW. The smaller you live (materially-speaking), the bigger you can live (creatively-speaking). This way the stakes aren’t so high…you aren’t demanding of your passion that it keeps you living a rich life. Then you can stretch and grow with the most possible freedom. This was my strategy in my 20’s, and it’s the reason I worked really hard to avoid all debts, and to keep my lifestyle really manageable. If I’d been saddled with a big life, I don’t think I ever could have found my way forward to the freedom I have now.

Have you heard? Zits are cool now.
So yeah.. gonna try this weekly comic thing again, we’ll see how that goes…
Also, I’m selling my book in my personal shop now! Signed and drawn in.
And if you’re in LA come by the Secret Headquarters TONIGHT (thursday) 6-9 and see my zit IRL.


This is EXACTLY me this week, down to zit placement. I’ve mostly forgotten it’s there when I’m out until a well-meaning person peers too closely at my face.
