Check this out: Coach Nic just finished a 65 mile hike through 3 mountain passes with over 18,000ft of elevation change. Badass, right The journey involved hiking over boulders the size of cars, showering in freezing lakes, inclement weather, and no cell phone service for five days. Nic said, “It was a wild one... survived a wicked hail storm at high altitude and was challenged physically and mentally everyday. One of my most epic backpacking trips for sure! I had a great time!” Nic will be back on the Old Town schedule this Sunday. Make sure to congratulate him on his successful trip! #morelife #backpacking #badass
I am inspired by this woman everyday. Find the people who will engage in conversation, not just about the art, but about how we can make it equitable. I’m really grateful Emma has joined the #Rescripted team and even more so that she took the time to sit and talk about everything that goes into her writing career. Here’s to a lot more conversations, and a brighter future. “I absolutely think it’s possible for a critic to be a member of the community of artists they are critiquing and I would even go so far as to argue that those who are a member of that community are better critics than those who are not.” - Emma Couling

finished my first Spartan Race this past weekend. beer fest Saturday ~ Spartan race Sunday - definitely my jam. 5 miles with 20ish obstacles sprinkled in. I learned that my upper body strength definitely has room for improvement and wearing a super (wo)man shirt makes you feel approximately 37 times more #badass than you really are. //

If you have not yet read this piece in the @nytimes do yourself a favor and read it now.
In it, @kellymarietran speaks out for the first time after online harassment lead her to delete all her Instagram posts.
What she experienced is an amplified nightmare of the micro-aggressions many folks experience when they dare to carve out their corner of nerd culture and don’t meet the status quo. We couldn’t help but tear up when we read this, and we bet we’re not alone:
“I want to live in a world where children of color don’t spend their entire adolescence wishing to be white. I want to live in a world where women are not subjected to scrutiny for their appearance, or their actions, or their general existence. I want to live in a world where people of all races, religions, socioeconomic classes, sexual orientations, gender identities and abilities are seen as what they have always been: human beings.”
We want to live in this world too. In order to do so, we have to challenge the supremacy that, when left unchecked, can grow like a mold throughout fandoms and squelch voices denoted as ‘other.’
Everyone deserves to see their face in their heroes. Representation matters, and we will fight for it.
“You might know me as Kelly.
I am the first woman of color to have a leading role in a “Star Wars” movie.
I am the first Asian woman to appear on the cover of Vanity Fair.
My real name is Loan. And I am just getting started.”
We can’t wait to see what comes next from this badass hero 💪🏻
💜In order for you to insult me, I'd first have to value your opinion... I'm just saying💜
