Corp. Bites: Perfection and Me

I constantly fear that all of the feedback that I get is making me a worse person overall. The overall attention to detail and overly critical analysis can only seep over into my daily life. I fear being that person who dies when someone speaks improperly (although that already kills me). I just fear that I’ll become that guy with these disgustingly high standards for people inflated by my job’s expectations.

Is your personal life more important? I prefer to just overlook some minor things, and it’s going to be super difficult to just turn that filter off. Think about how you can never think positively about Christopher Columbus once you found out he raped and pillaged. Turning off that filter is uber difficult.

This song is almost able to make me forget the whole Rihanna thing. I legit enjoy this song a lot.

Corp. Bites: Gender, Gender

Two topics for discussion today.

First, at our lunch table we’ve established that gender norms and roles are expected and no one wants to change them. When discussing who should pursue whom and which sex should take the iniatitive, everyone was pretty gender typical. Men hunt, women are pursued. I guess people really are still ‘there.’ I guess…

Also, the double standard of MTV showing Sammi punching Ronnie, and the defense of them showing it because ‘a man should never hit a woman’ and what’s commonly held is truth is just…By this logic, it’s commonly held that women aren’t equal to men and aren’t as capable, thus should be paid less. Oh no? You mean that logic doesn’t hold, yeah, I didn’t think so.

I know I should never be surprised by these things, the fact that for most people gender and sex are equivalent such that the physical purely determines societal behavior. I think what struck me as strange was the presence of a WGS major that didn’t have a ‘progressive’ opinion.

I can’t think of the last time I thought ‘Wow, Adriana Lima is the most beautiful person in the world.’ Actually, I can. I was in 9th grade, and had to draw something from a magazine. I saw her in a jeans ad, thought she was not pretty yet could not take my eyes off of the advertisement.

And that’s when it hit me, she’s pretty pretty close to perfection.

And she’s been just hamming it up with VS for a bit, so I’m glad she’s back to looking like this. That face. I’m done.

There’s something about this image that I find fascinating. You have a bride and her cake in a truck, hard and soft, practical and fanciful. I could speak a lot about this photo, but I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

Somehow, Armani has made Rafa look less fug. Great job to the photog for only showing the better proportions of his face.
