"I loved him straight away. He turned up and hadn’t slept. He was on an all-night flight, and he was really polite. We talked, and I really liked him. I could tell straightaway he wasn’t a fame boy, and he was really talented and a cool guy." *

"My favourite sport is baseball and one of my favourite baseball memories is, my dad always worked weeks so he could never come to my games during the week. He could only make it on the weekends. It was my last year of little league before I was going to the big diamond. I was a small kid and fast and I was good at baseball. I always dreamed of hitting a home run and getting to jog around the bases. Where I played at, all the fields in New Jersey, there were no fences so you could never hit a home run. Then when I moved to California, it was my last year on the little league diamonds so basically my last chance. I was like, ‘I’m never going to hit the big one…’ I wanted to hit a home run all season and this one game I had during the week, I had two in one game. I called my dad to tell him about it. He wasn’t there and it was so sad. I wanted my dad to see so badly. He was like, ‘I’ll see the next one!’ Then I’m in the next season at the play offs, I haven’t hit another one. My dad still hasn’t seen me hit a home run so it’s a weekday, playoff game and it’s literally the last inning and I come up with two odds. I’m in the on deck circle looking up at the stands cause my dad was trying to make it if he got off early enough and he’s not there, it’s just my mom and my sister. So I go up to bat and it’s 2 to 1 and I hit a home run and tie the game. Then literally as I was running third and coming home, my dad was in the stands and he literally said he got there right before I cracked it and he saw it. It was the coolest moment of my life. It’s still one of my favourite moments."

I haven’t got it yet, but I’m hunting it and fighting for it, I want something serious, something fresh—something with soul in it! Onward, onward.

And then I saw that Melissa Fumero had been cast as Amy Santiago on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and I felt my guts roll up into my throat and try to escape out of my mouth. Omgomgomgomg that’s it then. There’s no way in hell a major network is gonna cast two Latina actresses in such a tight ensemble show I AM SCREWED.

And then next day my agents called and told me I’d booked it.

I couldn’t believe it. I had been saying to my boyfriend the night before how there was JUST NO WAY. Normally, The Latina is a singular element of the ensemble she is working in. She’s there to provide contrast, or sexuality, or humor. Or she’s there to clean the floors and/or steal your man. There are some serious stereotypes very much alive in film and TV today, and The Latina is one of them.

Here’s the thing though. The world is changing. Slowly but surely, television is changing. The character stereotypes are changing, or being turned inside out by some fantastic writers and actors (I’m looking at you, Orange is the New Black, Scandal, and The Mindy Project). People of color are on TV playing roles that are fleshed out, complex, human. And yes, some of those characters are maids. Some are sexy heartbreakers there to steal your man. Some own BBQ joints, while some are Chiefs of Staff. Some are prisoners, and some are cops. All are real people with hopes, dreams, ambitions, fears, and all the other vast human emotions and desires…

…This is important. Because young women are watching TV, and they are getting messages about who they are in the world, who the world will allow them to be. And in big important steps, television is showing a reflection back to those young women that YOU CAN BE WHATEVER THE HELL YOU DAMN WELL PLEASE, and that two Latinas on one show is NORMAL. I think that’s a win for everybody.

"Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit."

This is one of the most important things I have ever read and I wish I would have come across it sooner. This is real, this is important.

Studio Ghibli | 1985 - 2014

After recent rumors of Studio Ghibli closing their animation department and the low box office numbers for When Marnie Was There, it was time to make an appreciation post for a company that has created true movie magic again and again. So, thank you, Studio Ghibli. Hopefully it isn’t good-bye just yet.


If I could get bands to come and play in my house, I’d like that. I’ve never been to a festival. I’m a creature of habit, mashed-potato comfort, I like rugs. Our sofa’s squishy. Maybe too squishy - it’s hard to get up sometimes.- MF

"so now you’re about to turn twenty and the world hasn’t gotten any bigger for you. you’re untouched, unloved, unprepared. your parents still pay for your gas. your friends all have internships. one of them even got cast to be in a movie. you’ve got all this talent that you don’t know how to share. you just want to fuck someone, anyone, to feel a little less like an island. the man at the McDonald’s drive-thru held both sides of your hand when he handed you your change and you cried the entire way home. skin burns. you’re about to turn twenty and you feel like you’re fifteen. you sleep for fourteen hours and still need a nap. the world is shrinking one empty heartache at a time.
you’re scared you’ll never find anyone to love you, not even well. you’ll settle for anything.
don’t.
you’re about to turn twenty and they never remind you how young that is. falling in love does not make you grow up, heartbreak does, and there is more than one way to fall apart. you’re about to turn twenty and it’s okay if you aren’t ready. it’s okay if you aren’t ready. it’s okay."
