8 track Friday - I said a-Hip Hop

I'd skip the R. Kelly song, but that's just me. ;)

Includes the terribly nostalgic Tone-Loc "Wild Thing." Aaah, childhood memories!

Sorry, darlings

I'm sorry that I haven't been posting lately. My camera went kaputski a while ago and I can't afford to buy a new one right now. Unfortunately I don't really have any outfit photos saved up, so there won't be any of those for a while.

8-Track Fridays have been queued through the end of the year, so those will always be popping up on schedule. I also would like to continue adding new content in the form of Etsy Tuesday posts, inspiration posts, and things like Polyvore when I have the time. I've just been really busy and distracted lately - I haven't even been keeping up with my favorite blogs, which I used to read religiously.

A little bit of an update on how things are going:
School is going to be over here at the beginning of June, so things are a little hectic from the standpoint of finding a stopping point, trying to tie up loose ends and tidying up. I had a really excellent interview for a 5th grade teaching position and I've got my fingers and toes crossed that I'll get it! I continue to volunteer as an official with Assassination City Roller Derby. I've been taking a fun cardio belly dance class at the local rec center once a week. I haven't been reading very much. :(

What's new with you, lovelies?

the hipster headdress

Image from

How? An interesting and informative post by a fashion blogger on the "hipster headdress."

I am so happy that none of the fashion bloggers I follow do this.

I've been going through old entries at Native Appropriations and I'm honestly very surprised and saddened that she has so much content to work with. I had the opportunity to work for the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Oklahoma during an internship while I was in college, got to visit a lot of Native Americans in their communities and even had a great time at a couple of powwows, and got to personally hear some of their stories and witness their community's unique struggles. The way that Native Americans continue to be treated by the rest of society is really sad.

At the same time, I kind of feel like if I stand up and say something, like to my co-worker who mentioned she wants to get a dreamcatcher tattoo, people will just dismiss me as one of those people who latches on to causes just to have something to complain about. I just don't understand how people can do things based on the presumption that Native people, their cultures and their religions no longer exist.
