So, Here Goes: I Am Ugly

16 Nov

Fatshion Hustlings

I’ve been wanting to write this post for a long while now, because I think it is something important that is worth saying, both on my part and on the part of anybody else who feels this way about themselves, and to anybody who finds that this way of thinking is a sad thing that denotes low self-esteem, when it actually has more to do with self-identification and wanting to self-identify in whatever way we want.

So, here goes:

I am ugly.

Naturally, this is not the first time I have said this. As somebody who has had the severe misfortune of being a teenager before, I used to declare myself ugly all the time, just like pretty much everybody else around me. Back then I said it primarily to gain sympathy and maybe a denying comment or two. “You’re not ugly Gillian, what are you saying?” “C’mon, I’d kill…

To Climb or not to Climb…

11 Nov

Happy Orange World

I decided to sign up for a beginner’s climbing class while in Arizona. I think the school and I have a very different definition of the word beginner.  I have been climbing since I was a kid…apparently this type of climbing is called bouldering. I also have experience indoor climbing and rappelling, but this was a new experience – top-rope protected climbs on high angled rock faces.

Their website states “Rock climbing’s special combination of mental and physical challenges make it a unique experience. The intrinsic rewards that come from combining concentration, agility, balance, strength and judgment are unequalled in any other sport.” – I agree.  It was scary – and lots of thinking – Where the hell am I going to grab next?? – and Damn why am I so short?? Tall people have many more options! Um…this is hard. –  went through my mind…

No. 6 Stanford Shocks No. 2 Oregon In Pac-12 Showdown

8 Nov

CBS San Francisco

STANFORD (CBS / AP) — Stanford squashed Oregon’s national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. Florida State might want to send the Cardinal a thank you card.

Tyler Gaffney ran for 157 yards and No. 6 Stanford hammered No. 2 Oregon for three quarters before holding off a furious rally by the fast-paced Ducks for a 26-20 victory Thursday night.

The Cardinal made it two in a row against the Ducks, who haven’t lost to any other team in the last two seasons.

“If you control the line of scrimmage on either side of the ball you can beat these guys,” Stanford coach David Shaw said. “We’re a big, physical football team that plays well together.”

Kevin Hogan ran for a touchdown and played a mistake-free game at quarterback for Stanford (8-1, 6-1 Pac-12) as the Cardinal put on a clinic in how…

One small world

7 Nov



I got a call from this location earlier today. Well, not this location exactly. This is Aloita Resort – Mentawai Islands, Indonesia and my friend is living in a hut in the jungle nearby.


Her call was no surprise, nor was her whereabouts. For the 2.5 decades I’ve known her, her next call could never be predicted for its timing or its origin. If the phrase free spirit was in the dictionary, her name would be next to it.

Over a forty minute conversation, while she, “partied with Carly in a hut on the beach,” we caught up after three weeks out of touch and we laughed until I had tears streaming down my cheeks. While she and I have conversed from all points all over the world, this is a friendship that triumphs over any length of silence or distance. As she always says, we are soul sisters.
