Please Welcome Jazmine Hughes, The Hairpin's New Contributing Editor

jazmine
Hey young world: I’m Jazmine, your new contributing editor. I’m a Scorpio, an ESTJ, and a Liz Lemon specifically in the scene where she shuts down someone trying to give out food recommendations over hers, but otherwise probably more of a Frank, if we’re being honest.

Perhaps you know me if you’ve read about Grown Women or Seinfeld avoidance on this particular hair accessory review site, black parenting and interracial dating for Gawker and Jezebel, a bunch of things at The Billfold that I only wrote to get Mike Dang to like me (hi Mike!!), or if you are employed at a New York-based restaurant that serves mashed potatoes. (If you aren't familiar with any of those things, just know this: I love mashed potatoes.) I come to you from New York Magazine (nope, not the New Yorker); before that, Connecticut College (nope, not UCONN); before that, my mother’s womb (yup, that’s the one!).

I’m stupid excited to be here– Haley is my tier supreme, and I feel #blessed to get to work with her every day, and you all are just the toppest notch in a group of notches. In keeping in with Choire and Haley’s idea of a blog full of “petty enthusiasms,” today marks the last day that this is *not* a Danny DeVito fanfic website, but for job security, I promise to read all of your submissions anyway. I also accept all unsolicited photos of dogs.

Here’s what’s at the forefront of my mind: the descriptor of this website has always been simply “Ladies first,” which is quite possibly the best Queen Latifah song to live your life by. But on the real: Haley and I are committed to putting you first, and each other first, and continuing to make this blog the fun place that it’s always been, just with a little more Latifah.

See you tomorrow.

I can tell you one thing, you're my new favorite person on the internet that's for sure.

Alright Jazmine/new friend/all internet friends, can we get an IN PERSON meet and greet with the new editors going?? Preferably at any New York-based restaurant that serves mashed potatoes???

Jazmine

Lol who

"WHO? JAZMINE!!!!"

adorable-eggplant

@adriana Pupppyyyy!! Look at that crinkly little tongue.

@jazzloon Yay! That is so exciting! Now I can tell you directly that the interracial dating article linked above was super meaningful to me, and I sent it to my boyfriend and we had the 'things that are important to me to clarify before/if we ever have children' talk which was big and scary and totally necessary [neither of us is black, but also neither of us is white, and I'm mixed and he isn't, so it's a conversation that was going to have to happen eventually, but it was reaaaaally nice to have some talking points to get it started]. Also, that last line killed me and is why I am still, perhaps, not ready for kids.

Anyhoo, excited to see where the Hairpin is headed. If there could be more Billfold cross over, I would not complain... For example, everyone should be reading that 'how wizards do money' series; it's a gamechanger.

Jazmine

@adriana hi well it was fun being the contributing editor for one day but now I am dead due to the overwhelming cuteness of that pup thanks for the memories

Jazmine

@adorable-eggplant thank you thank you!!! am so glad it meant something; it's still a conversation my boyfriend and I are having. let's continue to talk about this!!

I love two men in this world: Danny DeVito and Mike Dang (and the aforementioned boyfriend, I guess) (and my dad). So YES all I want is more Billfold crossover!! Eee!

Jazmine

@jazzloon LOL JUST KIDDING. I am Jazmine and jazzloon is me and we are one in the same. So hi!!!

@avianbonesyndrome (and everyone else, I know you're wondering): YES we will do a meet up!! Haley and I are already starting to plan. Get ready to carbo load.

Anna Fitz

@jazzloon YOU GOT ME GOOD!!!

lupineline

Hiiiii! And welcome, welcome, welcome.

I think this is gonna be real good.

Roxanne Rholes

I've been MIA in Hairpinland for over a year, but this could totally be the thing that brings me back. Please forgive me, 'pin?

Bittersweet

@Roxanne Rholes Ditto! Very excited to hear this. Didn't realize Jazmine is a fellow Conn College (NOT UCONN) alum - that just makes me like her better.

Welcome, Jazmine! Looking forward to new Hairpin stuff.

Jazmine

@Bittersweet @Roxanne Rholes Welcome back, y'all. There's mashed potatoes and camel cookies for everyone.
