I have a weird outlook concerning myself.
Sometimes I fucking hate everything about the way I look and then sometimes I feel super just spot on like yeah I’m a badass.

Most of the time I feel like my face is slightly above average but then I look at the rest of me and it just ruins everything.

I got this for my best friend’s birthday and it’s really great!!!

My mum is getting me this for Christmas and I am so fucking excited

So I have been trying to get my brother into reading for aaaaages. Like since he was 10.. (He’s about to turn 19) And I got him to watch Perks of Being A Wallflower tonight and when it was over he goes “Wow. That was surprisingly REALLY good.. it’s based off a book right?” And I nodded and he goes “You’re a lot like Charlie” and I told that that was why I liked the movie so much.. and he said “but I also mean the way you can guys can sit down and read books in one day like it was only a paragraph long. I wish I could get into reading. Do you have any books you think I would like?” AND SERIOUSLY GUYS I DRAGGED HIM TO MY ROOM AND JUST STARTED PILING BOOKS INTO HIS ARMS I COULDNT STOP MYSELF I WAS SO EXCITED.

Cuddle up in my nest watching Perks of Being A Wallflower💚

When keepers at the Chengu City Zoo in China noticed their turtle wasn’t feeling well, they x-rayed her and discovered that 14 eggs had been caught in her birth canal. An emergency c-section was performed and the eggs were immediately buried into the sand until they hatched. They used a saw to open up her shell, and closed it up with epoxy resin!

As I’m walking through Target with my little sister, the kid somehow manages to convince me to take a trip down the doll aisle. I know the type - brands that preach diversity through displays of nine different variations of white and maybe a black girl if you’re lucky enough. What I instead found as soon as I turned into the aisle were these two boxes.

The girl on the left is Shola, an Afghani girl from Kabul with war-torn eyes. Her biography on the inside flap tells us that “her country has been at war since before she was born”, and all she has left of her family is her older sister. They’re part of a circus, the one source of light in their lives, and they read the Qur’an. She wears a hijab.

The girl on the right is Nahji, a ten-year-old Indian girl from Assam, where “young girls are forced to work and get married at a very early age”. Nahji is smart, admirable, extremely studious. She teaches her fellow girls to believe in themselves. In the left side of her nose, as tradition mandates, she has a piercing. On her right hand is a henna tattoo.

As a Pakistani girl growing up in post-9/11 America, this is so important to me. The closest thing we had to these back in my day were “customizable” American Girl dolls, who were very strictly white or black. My eyes are green, my hair was black, and my skin is brown, and I couldn’t find my reflection in any of those girls. Yet I settled, just like I settled for the terrorist jokes boys would throw at me, like I settled for the butchered pronunciations of names of mine and my friends’ countries. I settled for a white doll, who at least had my eyes if nothing else, and I named her Rabeea and loved her. But I still couldn’t completely connect to her.

My little sister, who had been the one to push me down the aisle in the first place, stopped to stare with me at the girls. And then the words, “Maybe they can be my American Girls,” slipped out of her mouth. This young girl, barely represented in today’s society, finally found a doll that looks like her, that wears the weird headscarf that her grandma does and still manages to look beautiful.

I turned the dolls’ boxes around and snapped a picture of the back of Nahji’s. There are more that I didn’t see in the store; a Belarusian, an Ethiopian, a Brazilian, a Laotian, a Native American, a Mexican. And more.

These are Hearts 4 Hearts dolls, and while they haven’t yet reached all parts of the world (I think they have yet to come out with an East Asian girl), they need all the support they can get so we can have a beautiful doll for every beautiful young girl, so we can give them what our generation never had.

Please don’t let this die. If you know a young girl, get her one. I know I’m buying Shola and Nahji for my little sister’s next birthday, because she needs a doll with beautiful brown skin like hers, a doll who wears a hijab like our older sister, a doll who wears real henna, not the blue shit white girls get at the beach.

The Hearts 4 Hearts girls are so important. Don’t overlook them. Don’t underestimate them. These can be the future if we let them.
