There’s nothing you can do. There’s nothing you can do to prepare. It just rocks you like an actual hurricane. Her cement-free real butt, the outfit changes, the makeup changes, the winged eyeliner, the white wrinkle-free pants while she sings Resentment. All these hits back to back. Beyonce hits. Jay Z hits. Two hours of chart-topping songs. Songs. Songs. They smile at each other. They like each other. They cash checks together. They’re just better than us.
Like, you know she has a large intestine and a colon. You know she has to poop at some point. Doesn’t she? Doesn’t she?! That, somehow, she is only human (right? right?) but then you remember she only uses red Renova toilet paper and you hate yourself all over again because what is white Charmin in the red package, you plebeian fool? What have you ever accomplished in life?
melissa beck: Do You Love Yourself Enough To Love Beyonce?
Watching the “On the Run” HBO concert special on Saturday night was how Alishan and I prepared for our half yesterday (well, that and a metric ton of Selena’s delicious spaghetti and meatballs) and this is pretty much exactly how it made me feel. I bet Beyonce can run a half marathon in like an hour flat.
Lexington, you’re the cutest. #sharethelex #nikeplus #2sixpoints2 @nikerunning (at Woodland Park And Pool)
Couldn’t have made it through today without either one of my crews. Thanks #2sixpoints2 for getting me this far and @jgeil2 for being my own personal hydration system through 20 rolling, windy hills! @nikerunning #nikeplus (at Legacy Trail)
Soo Sunny Park (b. Seoul, Korea) - Unwoven Light at Rice University’s Rice Gallery in Houston, Texas. Composed of 37 individual sculptural units, the installation uses iridescent plexi-glass embedded in pieces of a chain link fence to cast shimmering, colorful reflections across the spacious gallery.

To say I’m overwhelmed is an understatement. I’ve been so appreciate of everyone’s support, kind words, and food this week (shoutout @mspitt3 for the Coldstone delivery), but having two friends convince @getsomehomie to mail pizzas to Kentucky? That’s insane and I love it, and Mom would too. Seriously, not sarcastically, #blessed. Thanks so much @karalambert and @jules3190, y’all are the real MVPs and I love you so much.
