hey amy! could you recreate a video like this for the chillier months in the end of winter beginning of spring? it would be really great to get some tips for styling head to toe and tips for layering
Well, that's great then, because the majority of girls are really pretty, in fact, the majority are beautiful, too. In my opinion, the only females who i don't think are good looking are women/girls who don't know how to treat others, & even then, i can only count a few! Try adjusting your eyes, you may be able to see a shitload of more beauty in the world if you tried! Maybe even toward yourself, if you're insecure (which i hope not)! & i'm not just referring to inside beauty, but outside, too.
Yeah she was obviously shopping at a higher quality vintage shop. Not really much of a challenge. What would truly be a challenge would be making solid looking outfits from a Salvation Army. I've personally spent a couple hours in the store only to find 1 or 2 pieces that fit me and aren't stained/ripped.
Usually Salvation Army is full of clothing for fat people, so its a really big challenge to find something stylish and somewhat fitted.
I think it's hard to get a whole outfit from one store, one day. But if you thrift a lot or if you go to an upscale vintage shop (like anyone has that kind of money...) making a whole outfit out of vintage is a cinch.
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
