America, Be Like, and Bless Up: Kirk, a female Border Collie, watching herself win the 2017 Purina Pro Challenge. DOG PLAN p3 Ain’t I been told y’all?! BYOBC. No, not bring your own bottle - bring ya own is bottle is cancelled stop drinking so damn much and enjoy the Thai food without the liquor cot dammit that curry is delicious on its own without the merlot but lemme not start, that’s for another day lmao. BYOBC mean Be Ya Own Biggest Cheerleader. U feel me? Always. Celebrate ya own success. Motivate YOURSELF. Ultimately among friends but even among family u gon have people cheering for you buuuuuuut NOT really cheering for u 😂. This ain’t bc they evil! They might be - like some of them - but mainly they probably just a lil tight that they ain’t having success like u. U feel me? That’s why u gotta watch out sometimes about bragging about ya accomplishments all on Facebook and LinkedIn like “truly humbled to humbly be awarded the 40 Under 40 in My [Extremely Specific Field of Work] in [Oddly Specific Geographic Region]”. U really humble bc u seem hella braggadocious right now no shots lol. Just keep some of that inside and be thankful to God and celebrate with yourself not bc u the sh!t but because u know that out of all the people that God could have rewarded for they hard work he chose you. “But smash I work 10x harder than all my friends, I deserve my success!” No. U deserve nothing. It’s Filipino workmen in Dubai right now building buildings in 120 degree heat to make a lil scratch to send home. THEY work harder than u. It’s just that u was born in America and they was born in the Philippines u get me! That’s why every time I pull an all nighter for work on a transaction, I remember that but for the Grace of God, I could be in Dubai on the 98th floor of a building working myself to death. May God always make us thankful and may he reward our hard work. Be ya own cheerleader beloveds! Bless up ❤️

Fail, Gym, and Life: IF IT DOESNT CHALLENGE YOU IT WONT CHANGE YOU OMILLIONAIRE MENTOR There’s this famous quote that many of you already heard before: "If something that you’re doing doesn’t challenge you, then it doesn’t change you." ☝️️Of course, since every one of us has room for improvement, this can also mean if you don’t change yourself, then you can’t be responsible for changing your situation in life. You can never see any improvement in your life if you stick to your comfort zone. ✔️Learn a new language. Chines, Dutch, Nihonggo, French, Filipino, Mandarin, Spanish, etc... these are just some of the languages you can discover as you strive to challenge yourself. ✔️Figure out what you’re scared of and do it for one week consistently. If you’re in sales, and you’re scared of talking to people personally or over the phone, then you have a problem. You can’t just relate with your clients online, can you? Now, instead of crippling in fear and automatically thinking you’ll fail, spend at least five minutes a day to pick up the phone and make a call to a prospect. Yes, it’s scary. But you will get through it! ✔️Dedicate at least nine minutes a day for physical exercise. You don’t need to go to the gym, you know. A simple 9-minute run around your neighborhood or an intense dance routine done in your living-room can do wonders for yourself. Aside from the obvious reason that exercise can help you maintain your regular weight or shed those unnecessary pounds, it can also aid in making you feel better about yourself by releasing endorphins. If you feel good, you do good. ✔️Make a realistic budget and find out how you can cut back on something so you can invest more. Challenge yourself to step out of your current budget and develop a better budget for yourself. Money management is not about what you make – it’s what you do with what you make. ✔️Attend one career-related seminar a month. Don’t settle for your current job position. Aim high in your career. Of course, with that aim, include in your action, too. millionairementor fridayvibes hustle grind

Anaconda, Bad, and Beautiful: T-Mobile 12:38 PM 53 % Tweet Amritsizzurp2LaWhore @Vasheezy They made us hate ourselves: an Indian children's book, as evidence UGLY BEAUTIFUL 6/9/15, 8:32 AM Reply to Amritsizzurp2LaWhore Home Notifications Messages Me belligerentbagel: pilambdaod: xekstrin: pilambdaod: bengali-babe: “Colorism isn’t real.” Colorism? Wow because the term “racism” is so blase. pilambdaod Colorism specifically refers to people of their own race valuing lighter skin over darker skin. For example in latina culture, valuing “good” straight hair over “pelo malo” or bad, curly hair. Racism would imply we’re talking about at least two different races here; colorism specifically is about racist ideals within one race, people of one race policing others appearance within their own race.  (since this is an indian book, presumably made by indian people for indian children to read, depicting a light skinned indian woman as more beautiful than a dark skinned one, it’s colorism.) One of those is clearly Caucasian the other Indian. Creating random new “isms” only makes legitimate grievances seem petty and stupid. “One of those is clearly Caucasian” Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut  Karisma Kapoor, Shruti Haasan, Zarine Khan All actresses/models born in India to parents who were also born in India (or Pakistan), in a narrow view of “race.”  If a Papua New Guinean hooks up with a Swedish person all you get is a human.  There’s no new thing you’re going to get. You just get a human.  - Bill Nye: Race is a Human Construct (and don’t look at the comments; it’s the usual cesspool of bigots)  Ideas on “race” have been in slow development over the years, but colourism is a real thing (often with roots in imperialism, especially as Western ideas of beauty began to intrude upon countries).  The 100 Years of Beauty: Philippines has a jarring jump where April Villanueva (who has light/medium-toned skin) gets her skin darkened for the 1910s-20s aesthetic, then becomes powder-white when US/European colonial interests make a stronger influence on Philippine society in the 1930s (more in the research video).  Two more examples of skin tone variation between famous women in countries where colourism has become prevalent in celebrity culture (ie, it was a lot harder finding photos of a dark-skinned Korean actress than a light-skinned one):  Koreans: Song Hye-kyo and Lee Hyori  Filipinos: Valerie Garica and Nicole Scherzinger (active in the US; Filipino father, Hawaiian/Samoan-Russian mother)  Variation in skin colour across a “race” is as real as variation in eye colour (”oh, you have brown eyes? I guess you’re not a real Caucasian”).  Colourism also pervades a lot of modern beauty marketing.  What’s underneath your dark skin? A prettier, lighter version of yourself! Everyone should strive to be more fair and lovely because only then you’ll be happy with your flesh prison!!  tl;dr colourism exists and isn’t some bogeyman made up by “”es jay double-ews,”” and if you’re the person bemoaning how it “delegitimizes racism” then it’s likely you actually don’t care about racism at all and are just trying to devalue the arguments with the classic “but so-and-so people have it worse! how could you be so self-centered and selfish??”
