1. #standup4girls. October 11 is International Day of the Girl and to celebrate, LitWorld is encouraging women, men, girls and boys to tell the story of an inspirational woman or girl. Their Stand Up For Girls campaign gathers these stories and promotes them worldwide in hopes of showing girls the influence they can achieve through reading and writing. {523 million girls and women worldwide cannot read or write.} To participate, fill in and print out the official sign and take a picture to post on social media with the tag #standup4girls. You can also physically stand up at noon your time on 10/11 (you’ll be standing up with thousands of other girls, boys, women and men around the world), share a story, or donate to the cause here. Words can’t express how amazing this is.

2. Twin Forks. My favorite band of all time is Dashboard Confessional. I remember buying A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar at Target in like, 8th grade, soon after discovering them–I still have it today and it is my favorite album EVER.  It is high school to me, but brings up only good memories. Kind of like Sarah Dessen. Chris Carrabba, the lead singer, was also my favorite concert ever. DO YOU UNDERSTAND I LOVE HIM? I routinely check their tour page and during my most recent visit discovered that Chris is with a new band now called Twin Forks, and the music is just as amazing (!!!!!!). AND they are doing a concert here in two weeks (!!!!!!!!). Freeeeeeeaking out. Here’s another lovely throwback I’m loving.

3. Skull photography. I stopped in a really cute store in the Inner Sunset last Friday and this photograph by Misha Ashton-Moore has been haunting (hehe) me ever since. I didn’t buy it then, but I might have to go back and add it to my gallery wall. There’s something so scarily beautiful about them.
