@hangnail if you really do want to contribute, the Hairpin Travel Series might still be available for download! I forget the details but I bet it'd be easy to look up. A bunch of exclusive essays for a really good price - I think it was like $3?

On Famous People It Took Me Way Too Long To Realize Are Not the Same Person

Two sets of people that apparently lots of people do not know are not the same, and like I don't understand how you can't tell them apart:

Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley
Laurence Fishburne and Samuel L. Jackson.

Now, I know they're similar in age, and Portman and Knightley both have bone structure and stuff, and Fishburne and Jackson both made a lot of movies in the same time period and have tooth gaps, but they look nothing alike! Am I the only person who sees this?

@Kate Harlin@facebook True Detective was my epiphany, the thing that made me realize that I know which is which. I feel enlightened now.

@Danger Zone Neil Simon and that other playwright, to the point that I'm not even sure what his name is.

Jeff Goldblum and John Leguizamo, but that was mostly because I constantly forgot Jeff Goldblum's name.

@Jazmine Hughes They look alike but do not act in the same way.

As usual, I loved this week!

Fashion Hairpin: Does anyone want to help me figure out how to dress up a grey T-shirt that's a little too big for me? Should I wear a fitted blazer over it or will that look like I borrowed lots of clothes from my dad? Any advice welcome, but please know that my wardrobe sucks.

On What Makes Us Feel Better When We're Sad?

I loved this. I don't always do the same thing when I'm sad, but often when I think I need to, I spend time by myself. The best way for me to take a break from my emotions is to physically separate myself from them, but you can't always just drop everything and get out of town, so I just try to take a mental break from whatever is bothering me, and usually that involves spending time by myself. I don't have a go-to person that I rely on every time I'm sad, and sometimes I just need to spend time with myself for self-care and to face however I'm really feeling, or just to shut out the noise of everyone else. Making a conscious choice to be alone for a bit means that I can try to create peace and have time to deal with my own thoughts. Sometimes it's a really long shower. Sometimes I just let out my feelings however they happen to come out. Sometimes I just turn on the TV and kind of stare at it. Having a little bit of independence, a bit of personal space, makes me feel less like I'm at the mercy of everyone else.

Thanks for this, it was a great read.
