Friendly Neighborhood Reporter

breaking news & breaking hearts

Rachel. ENFP. I live in New England and study journalism. 

I write books sometimes.

When I grow up, I'm gonna be a TV reporter.

[T]o be honest, there aren’t a lot of of jobs that are cooler than being a reporter. I mean, that’s what Superman was.

—John Horton, former columnist for The Plain Dealer, to Poynter, before adding, “I miss the daily challenge that you had, the feeling that you were doing something larger that made a big difference, fighting that fight every day. I think journalism is one of the few jobs that really has that aspect to it.” How mass layoffs in 2013 changed the lives of former Plain Dealer staffers. (via futurejournalismproject)

I was just browsing PostSecret (which I never do, BTW) and I saw a confession from a mom who said she wasn’t pleased with her daughter and wished she’d been a “tiger mom”. It looked almost EXACTLY like my mom’s handwriting and I don’t know how to feel. Like, we’ve always had a weird relationship, but I feel like I’m pretty damn successful…

Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible.

Do not tease children about their crushes.

Do not tease children about their crushes.

Do not tease children about their crushes.

DO NOT TEASE CHILDREN ABOUT THEIR CRUSHES.

DO NOT TEACH CHILDREN FROM A YOUNG AGE THAT THEIR EMOTIONS ABOUT ANOTHER PERSON ARE INVALID.

DO NOT TEACH CHILDREN THAT IF THEY TELL ANYBODY ABOUT THESE EMOTIONS, THEY WILL ONLY BE MOCKED.

JUST STOP.
