Dear candidate, thank you for your application to our ballet academy. Unfortunately, you have not been accepted. You lack the right feet, achilles tendons, turnout, torso length, and bust. You have the wrong body for ballet, and at 13, you are too old to be considered. [x]
In 2007, Misty Copeland made history by becoming the third African American female soloist and first in two decades, at American Ballet Theatre.
“I don’t think I needed my ingenue years. What would I have done, some more movies? The flip side of taking time away is I really figured out some stuff. I figured out things in terms of quality of life. I’m sure people have reservations about it, but you can’t work with everybody. And besides, I don’t want to be famous when I grow up. I just want to do good jobs.” - Natasha Lyonne for EW [x]
Is it selfish to say I want you the whole fucking time? I want you in my head. I want you in my bed. I want your hands all over my thighs. Give me your tightest grip. I want to exhale all of my loneliness and sadness to you. I want to breathe you in. I want you. I want you and I know this sounds pathetic but I want you to want me too.
