Moore says that even in a school of the most gifted acting students in the country, Lupita stood out right away. “The first thing you notice about Lupita is how stunning she is, of course. But I knew when the class came in, everyone does a monologue for the class on one of the first days as a way of introducing themselves and their work to everybody,” he says. “You could see she was incredibly committed and capable of very delicate feelings and very, very talented.”
Her colleagues and friends describe her as being passionate about more than just acting, investing her time on issues personal to he. The Mexican-born, Kenyan-raised performer was involved with AIDS activist groups on campus, particularly AIDS in Africa. “If there was someone notable especially from Africa coming to speak at Yale, which there often was, she’d like to go see that,” says Moore.
“She has concerns beyond that of an actor,” says Van Lieu. “Since she did that TV series Shuga in Kenya, she’s been active and concerned about the AIDS crisis in that country and so on. I think she’s just a real citizen of the world.”
Until then, her friends and former colleagues are enjoying watching her rise and rise and rise. “It’s strange and it’s surreal. But if there was someone that I thought everyone should know, she’s one of the people I would think that everyone should know,” says Moore. “As an actor it makes me feel very good about the industry because you want to believe that it values not only talent and beauty but that it values uniqueness. And Lupita is unique, very unique. There’s no one else like her.”Read more here!
I feel like this mindset that we have to ‘learn to love our flaws’ is doing more harm than good. I will probably never love my stretch marks or my nose or my waist, but I will learn to live withthese parts of me. Body positivity is NOT about being head over heals in love with your physique. Sometimes it’s just about realizing that your bodily imperfections do not determine your value or self-worth.
I wonder if my bloodsugar’s high, because I could use a tall drink of water.

My PMS is worse than yours. Once a month, I hate on everyone. I break up with my boyfriend. I entertain homicidal fantasies about my fellow commuters. I bitch out the people I love for no reason and I drive the people who love me away. I cry. I yell. I alienate.
So I wanted a birth control method that would stop all that. Progesterone is a hormone we make in our bodies. When you’re pregnant, you make more of it. So using a birth control method with progesterone sort of makes your body think you’re pregnant, which often results in lighter periods or no periods at all. But since you’re not really pregnant, you don’t put on a bunch of weight and give birth to a baby after nine months. That’s what I’m talking about.
There are several birth control methods with progesterone, like the Mirena IUD and the shot. These are both great methods, but I went with the implant, which is a tiny, plastic rod that’s the size of a matchstick and goes in your arm. That’s right, a doctor inserts it into your body like you’re in a science fiction movie. Except instead of getting tracked by the government, you don’t get pregnant (or PMS!) for three years.
The whole thing took about five minutes. First the doctor gave me a couple of shots to make me numb. Then she stuck a little device into my arm, lifted the skin up, and shot the little sucker in. And that was it, I was out the door. (And FYI, thanks to Obamacare everything was free.)
A few months in, I’ve experienced some light spotting, which is a common side effect and no big deal. And for most people, the spotting goes away eventually. I’m happy to report that my PMS is gone, gone, gone. Oh, and I’m not getting pregnant anytime soon either. Thanks, implant!

that’s a pretty bold statement. “my pms is worse than yours”
I’m so sick of seeing those “you’re not a bad person because you’re part of a privileged group” coddling posts, because no, you may not be a bad person just for being part of a privileged group but you ARE kind of a shitty person if you feel the need to prioritize you and your precious feelings over taking responsibility and doing your part in tearing down the system that lets you be privileged.
