ROOKIE is a website created by and for young women to make the best of the beauty, pain and awkwardness of being a teenager, and every school year they compile the best content from the site into a book. ROOKIE YEARBOOK 3 explores cures for love, girl-on-girl crime, standing for something, features interviews with Rookie role models like Sofia Coppola and Kim Gordon, and includes bonus exclusive content from Shailene Woodley, Dakota and Elle Fanning, Grimes, Kelis, Sia, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of Broad City, Haim, and more! ROOKIE YEARBOOK 3 comes out October 21, but you can pre-order it now!
I’m reading Lola and the boy next door and I like it, I loved Anna and the French kiss, 2 cute, had no idea the books connected, etc. but I’m a lil skeptical of any girl who has sexual awakenings over tall teenage boys in pinstriped pants.
Isla and the Happily Ever After is also fantastic. Etienne St. Clair is forever my #1 though. So fit!
i just learned this year that matt leblanc as joey was supposed to be handsome and not like a weird little man

Really fantastic video from Sammi about the abuse she faced in her previous relationship and how the public nature of that relationship (coupled with everything outside of the lens) impacted the way people have treated her new relationship and how people treat her as an individual. Also about how the domestic abuse has affected Sammi’s day to day behaviour. We’ve talked a lot on tumblr about the abuse within certain circles of the YouTube community, but we should be aware that (although very important) these conversations can be insular at times and there are conversations about abuse happening elsewhere on YouTube, in other circles, etc.
This week’s episode of Mental Floss was written and hosted by me! (Sorry for stealing your job, fishingboatproceeds.)
Intern Paige did a wonderful job hosting mental floss. She’s funnier than me and also smarter, and should probably just be the new host, except that she has to go to college.
(paigelfinch is awesome.)
