So on point.
Meet The First Woman To Make It Into The FDNY’s Calendar Of Heroes.
Danae Mines became one of the few female firefighters in the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) 11 years ago, despite her family telling her that only men joined the department.
This year, she broke down another barrier by becoming the first woman to be featured in the FDNY’s 2015 Calendar of Heroes. She had been told that the honor was reserved for men, but when she saw the open call for firefighters, she went, despite feeling a little intimidated standing in line with more than 100 men.
There are currently only 41 women in the department, but perhaps the attention Danae is getting will increase that number. “I wanted my picture in the calendar so that young girls and young women can see me and know that they can do this job,” she told the New York Daily News.
Thank you Danae! Got me feelin some kind of empowered way.
Mariah Carey’s Rainbow Photoshoot 1999.
One of the last photos of Sharon Tate, in the backyard of her home with her friend, Jay Sebring in August 1969. She, Jay, and the friend who took the photo, Wojciech “Voytek” Frykowski, were murdered on 8/9/69 in Tate’s home by the Manson family.
She was seriously just so lovely. Such loss.
OMG YESS, The Tribe.
Clearly I need to return to watching all the episodes on Youtube immediately. Also, the costuming was either SO GOOD or SO BAD in this show.
Palette cleanser for today’s stupid.

Heavy lifting doesn’t unnerve Kulsoom Abdullah, who has helped to throw open the doors for Muslim women in the international weightlifting arena.
All the weightlifting feels.
I just cashed the first check made out to my dance team for a costuming budget. I just needed to share that little accomplishment. We’ve already come so far, I’m so grateful.
