Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
"Likely nothing good can come from putting people together who inspire the resurrection of each other’s ghosts."
What a gorgeous sentence.

I had a lifestyle website once. It was really just a post on my blogspot where I confessed to being alone in my apartment and finding cheetohs in my sports bra, while my roommate was at a fancy Hollywood Pool Party. Style your life like my life and its inherent style.

This was a gorgeous read. One where, after the first few paragraphs you end up somewhere you didn't think you were headed -- but you are so grateful where you ended up.

Maybe like our lives.

Hopefully like our lives.

He says: "You don't know you're beautiful, that's what makes you beautiful!"
I say: "You don't know you're an asshole, that's what makes you an asshole."

I couldn't get the reply function to work, so, as a reply to the hate above: Why like that, girl? I mean, I'm all about critique, I'm all about feedback, but I'm even more all about the genuine commentary and support and questioning that I have always found at The Hairpin. I come here for the content and the comments, because of the thoughtful responses. And honestly, I do miss the robust commenting that used to be here. But also, I realize that not everyone is going to want to comment at length about how they want to be BFFs with Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie and Zadie Smith after watching an hour-long conversation. Am I glad that Jia still posts that? Hell yeah. Does it mean the golden age of this blog is past? Definitely not.

Maybe go back to The Times magazine? Or Buzzfeed?

And keep it up, Ms. Miller. I always love your work.
