1| More people crying over how Rey in The Force Awakens is their girlhood dreams come true!
2| The World of Wanderlust girls have made a great list of mistakes solo travelers too often make. While they unfortunately (and necessarily) include far too many female-safety tips (WHY CAN’T MEN JUST RESPECT WOMEN’S AUTONOMY AND NOT BE POTENTIAL RAPISTS) there’s a lot here that’s really useful!

4| WOW. Derek Webb, one of my favorite singers in high school, wrote a strong, hard, beautiful confession of his adultery and responsibility in breaking up his marriage.

1| This tiny girl is every Star Wars nerd.
2| Hahahaha, this video is GOLD.
3| WOW. I don’t know why this exists or what Gypsy of the Year 2015 is, but some people performed Hamilton’s “Wait For It” with a background of news headlines from 2015: discrimination, hate crimes, terrorism…culminating in “Forgiveness – can you imagine?”
