United States copyright regulators are agreeing with Wikipedia’s conclusion that a monkey’s selfie cannot be copyrighted by a nature photographer whose camera was swiped by the ape in the jungle. The animal’s selfie went viral. The US Copyright Office, in a 1,222-page report discussing federal copyright law, said that a “photograph taken by a monkey” is unprotected intellectual property.

But even for women who realize they still have a lot of things to figure out, around age 30 a sense of acceptance begins to settle in. It’s when many of us experience our first big career payoffs, and allow ourselves to exhale a little because for once it doesn’t feel like we’re building our lives from scratch. On the cusp of 30 — in stark contrast with prior milestones like college graduation — you’re set up to finally start living your best life, or at least a realistic approximation of it. You realize you’ll never be a wunderkind, and you’re okay with that. In general, you give way fewer fucks.

my sister’s best friend got married this weekend in nashville.

im hoping to feel recovered any minute now…

In your anger and your despair and your glorious, glorious youth
do not discount the idea of soul mates.

Discount the idea of a singular soulmate.

You still have way too much to learn
to be taught by one person. It’s going to take a lot of time.
It’s going to take a lot of long nights
and willing mouths.

And you might
curse the one who teaches you what it feels like
to cry at the bottom of the shower in the middle of the night
but it is important to learn how to get back up on your own feet
and let the wolf in your throat howl at the moon
once in a while.

Spit out the name of the one who teaches you how to let go.

Keep every love note from the one who shows you
how to want yourself only when he stops calling you.
Use them like blueprints when you forget
what it sounds like to ache.

They’re not all gonna be bad. Some of them burn.
Some of them feel like sinking into the heavy belly of the sun
and sure, sure. You never come away from something like that
without a few burn marks

but I promise it’s worth the warmth.

Remember, every time you think you’ve found “the one”,
there’s probably going to be just one more.

And you’re still gonna love every single damn one of them
like they were the most important sucker on the planet.
In this life, you’re going to love like pulling teeth,
(one after another)
and that’s okay.

I promise it’s all right.

Laura Ingalls Wilder’s rough memoir of frontier life, which served as the basis for her Little House on the Prairie series, will be published this fall as Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography. The Associated Press reports, “The not-safe-for-children tales include stark scenes of domestic abuse, love triangles gone awry and a man who lit himself on fire while drunk off whiskey,” adding, “Wilder and her daughter Rose Wilder Lane, herself a well-known author, tried and failed to get an edited version of the autobiography published throughout the early 1930s.” It will be published by the South Dakota State Historical Society Press.



oh hellllllllllll yes

on a muuuuuuuuch lighter note, i went to an adult gymnastics class last night and it was great.

plus, i got to watch all the circus people train while we learned which was worth at least half the cost.

so here’s your ramble and psa for going to the dermatologist:

dark spot on my chest gets darker. nurse sister and friend who’s had many spots cut off harass me to go to derm. finally get derm recommendation and go. derm immediately says “yeah, i’m taking it all. i expect this to be melanoma. i’ll call you by the end of the week.” two shots, three stitches, dark spot cut off in full.

call my dad who promptly freaks out and freaks me out. cry. wait 24 hours. wonder how people handle far far more terrible cancer diagnoses. contemplate own mortality. drink wine.

answer phone call. hear bad news with good implications. melanoma but relatively shallow and defined. hear need for follow up and name of plastic surgeon. prepare for possibility of lymph node dye test. call parents. digest being 28 with a malignant diagnosis. be greatful for all above mentioned people in my life.

They had a big going away party for NPH last sunday at the soho house which was really fun. The highlight of the night for me was swimming in my party dress. No regrets. There will be welcome party for Andrew tonight, but sadly no rooftop pool : (
