An Open Email to my Girlfriends After Watching This

A couple months ago, while talking to a a boy with a very large personality about my single status, he told me:

"You’re very pretty, Gaby, it’s just you’re personality is (gesturing with his hands outstretched before he could think of a "nice" way to put it) just TOO BIG; it’s annoying." 
Why is it that guys who crack jokes, quote funny movies, shout their laughter and debate politics at dinner tables are always the “life of the party,” but girls who do the same are “too big”. Are we seriously still trying to make girls smaller? Are men still uncomfortable with women being not only equal, but bigger, smarter, funnier? 
You could say it was only this boy, who seemed smaller to me the instant the words came out of his mouth, however, those words did make me think. I hope one day someone appreciates my huge, annoying personality but finding someone who does isn’t what worries me. What worries me is that it’s an issue at all. Yes, you can say you or someone you know has found that guy who loves you for all your weirdness but I have come to understand that many men cannot handle a woman who is “bigger” than them in any way at all.
And as Lily Myers beautifully notes above, it’s not only guys who are at fault. There are too many women who hide behind those kinds of boys, feeling as though they need to make themselves smaller in order to fit into men’s lives and worlds. This has got to stop. I’ve seen it too many times and although I struggle with it more times than you know, I know that at the end of the day I will remain me, in all my crazy bigness. I try to surround myself with boys that appreciate that about me. And honestly, every time I meet a guy, I consciously spend a good amount of time gauging whether or not he can handle the bigness, the weirdness, the awesomeness, whatever you want to call it. Usually, he can’t, so I quietly move along and hope that the next guy will be a better man, one who understands that my bigness will not make him smaller; that one can be my friend, or maybe one day something more. 

Love, Gaby

Where the Hell is Gaby? (by myusernamesuck5)

I just returned from a 33-day Eurotrip to Ireland, France and the Greek Islands with some friends. Inspired by the famous Youtube video, “Where the Hell is Matt?” I made my own video, “Where the Hell is Gaby?” in which I danced my way through each place we visited, managing to embarrass myself in front of thousands of people across Europe. I hope you enjoy! If you do, please reblog :)

I Met the Walrus

"In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit and timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short and won the 2009 Emmy for ‘New Approaches’ (making it the first film to win an Emmy on behalf of the internet)."

NBC Explains Why It Fired "Today Show" YouTube Leaker

It turns out NBC fired the worker who leaked the video I posted last week. “What is the Internet?” is a YouTube clip of The Today Show back in 1994 with Katie Couric and fellow hosts asking about the internet. It’s a great clip and one would wonder why the NBC employee who leaked it got fired however, NBC explains that this was not the first of the employee’s transgressions.

The Old Spice campaign, “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” is back! The 2010 ads were part of one of the most successful viral campaigns in recent years.
