This is the other one people seem to be into. And as a friend who’s known me since I was 18 mentioned, this is not what I look like usually! This is like…alternate universe MADE-UP-AS-FUCK me with some Veronica Lake-ass lipstick on.
And as another friend said, “I am dead. From a boner.”

So a while ago, I did a shoot with my close friend Nate Williams in my underwear and it was very fun. I posted some of the photos on Instagram and the reaction was largely positive, because well, girl in her underwear. Duh.
This past week, I agreed to do a couple more similar shoots for two different photographers mostly because I was curious to see if I was any good at this modeling thing and also to see if I liked doing it. This is one of the shots from Monday by photographer Jim Cushinery, which I edited a bit to add the dramatic blue overtone. He did an amazing job taking the pictures.
While we were doing the photos, he asked why I was interested in or at least okay with modeling a little now, and I remembered a quote from the amazing Nora Ephron’s book “I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts On Being A Woman.” In it, she writes:
“Oh, how I regret not having worn a bikini for the entire year I was twenty-six. If anyone young is reading this, go, right this minute, put on a bikini, and don’t take it off until you’re thirty-four.”
I spent so much time when I was younger covered up — first because of a damaging and patriarchal religion, then because of some misguided Tina Fey brand of feminism as being “better” than other women by being unsexy, and then because of fear that I was ugly and fear of my sexuality and just fear in general. The quote’s more of a metaphor anyway, for just doing things, and trying stuff out, and not holding back, and not nitpicking, and why not?
So okay, I’m 26. 
I’m not taking off this bikini until I am 34. ;) (Or 84, maybe!)

"I think it’s just the simple nature of the story, it’s about the little moments, something that is glossed over in almost all modern entertainment. It’s the supposedly boring moments, the things that supposedly don’t matter. But in reality, I think those are things that do matter, not these big set-piece moments, the things you’re told are going to define you. The first kiss doesn’t really matter that much. The film explores that and how important your relationships are with your family members. It’s very easy to become resentful of the people that raised you or the people that you raise, just because you’re so close to them. It’s hard to see them sympathetically for the person that they are. And part of what the film expresses is that we’re all trying."
