Once you’ve finished high school, skip higher education. As far as your character’s personal life is concerned, you are free to pursue marriage, but don’t sleep around, or you could end up getting the Wicked Ribbon.
Select Activities” and then pick Plastic Surgery.” Now, there’s a lot to choose from, such as Botox, a Brazilian butt lift, breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, a facelift, liposuction, a nose job, gender reassignment, and a tummy tuck. At first, you’ll want to avoid liposuction, tummy tuck, and a Brazilian butt lift.
Everything else is fair game except gender reassignment, but those three, in particular, have a high chance of killing you. The more time you spend living, the higher the chance you’ll override the BarbieGirlribbon.
That’s where a Brazilian butt lift, tummy tucks, and liposuction help. Combine that with one of the three deadliest plastic surgeries, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for death.
If you had enough plastic surgery and led a vanilla life, you’ll be awarded the BarbieGirlribbon. In the game of Billie, you can attain different ribbons by living your life a certain way.

This is a bit different from the others and like a lot of the ribbons, you are going to need to avoid accidentally getting one of the many others you can obtain during a Citizen's life. To get the BarbieGirlribbon, you will need to be born a female and get plastic surgery done on yourself at least once every few years throughout your life after you've turned 18.
Once you hit 18, look for a job that pays decent money, but won't make you famous! Go ahead and get a Tummy Tuck, Nose Job, Liposuction, Face Lift, Eyelid Surgery, Breast Augmentation, and Brazilian Butt Lift at least once throughout your life.
Avoid Gender Reassignment, because we need to remain female to finish the life! Once you've checked off all the options and have done Botox 5 – 10 times, you can start skipping three years or so to get to the end of your life.

Seriously, my girls (especially Ray) are obsessed with hair accessories, especially headbands! So the other day I made them a headband holder on the spur of the moment and I thought I'd share a little tutorial.
Then take each 3 inch piece, fold it in half, and attach the top part (where the two ends meet) to the full length ribbon (my light pink). (I put my loops close together to fit more on in a small space.
This year for Ottawa Comic Con, I did my version of Atom Eve from Invincible. It all began when I was getting really into the DC universe and was looking for a character I could play, other than Wonder Woman.
This led initially to the decision to cosplay Justice League Unlimited’s Hawk girl, but also led me to Googling “super hero girl pink suit” (because pink is my favorite color) and coming across Eve. As we all know, I love me some Intersectional Feminism, and so I was impassioned to find a character whose emblem was a straight up lemme symbol.
He was hyped because Invincible is his favorite series, and subsequently unleashed her identity, aka the best pun I’ve ever heard, upon me. And I noted her red hair meant I could re-use my Hawk girl wig (the criteria for most of my future cosplay).
I began by drawing up my plans for the costume, and proceeded to pick up a meter of pink stretchy fabric, and a bodysuit pattern. I started by buying a translucent mesh, pinkish bodysuit from Forever 21 online.
You can see that my original plans included the partial dark pink arms, but I didn’t start sewing until a couple of days before the con and decided to forgo them. That being said, my friend showed me a foam “camping mat” at the Dollar that ended up being great material with-which to make the cast.
Finally, I made the emblem with 2 pieces of white stretch jersey-type fabric, as well as some pink spray dye from Tulip, and some black embroidery thread. I hand-serged the white pieces together, cut a lemme symbol out of some cardboard and used the piece of cardboard as a spray guard, sprayed pink onto the white fabric, and then stitched an atom with the embroidery thread.
Near the end when I had stitched almost everything together, I decided to add clear straps to keep the suit up. The last step was finding some pantie hose and pink socks, throwing on some stripper heels (aka my prom shoes, but that’s a whole other thing) and styling my wig slightly.
An interesting side note: for my makeup I used a children’s glue stick from the Dollar to block out my uni brow, as I was letting it grow out at the time of this cosplay. If I could change something: I would have searched more thoroughly for an opaque light pink bodysuit or made one myself, as it would’ve looked closer to the actual character.
Authors note: this is going to be spicy and I hold no regrets There are a lot of memes out there designed to crap on people who don’t use “proper” English.
Whether it’s surrounding missing/misplaced apostrophes (you’re vs your, there vs they’re vs their) or words that have been newly created or re-defined as a result of colloquial speech (hello, extra, glow-up, basic, legit, dank, etc.) There’s a lot to unpack here, and mostly I’m going to center on the word (actually the acronym) BAE, but first I’m also going to touch on the whole misspelling/misplaced punctuation.
Simply put, the only time improper punctuation is genuinely an issue is when you legitimately do not know what the other person is trying to say. For sure, it gets a little stickier when there are missing question marks or commas, because yeah, you literally might not be able to ascertain the meaning of the sentence… but for the most part, homophones like “their, there, they’re” function the same no matter what form they’re written in.
Don’t pretend someone is stupid for valuing function over the confusing, inconsistent, and convoluted rules of the English language. If we wanted it shortened to the term that actually makes the most sense, we’d call it a control.
Not only is BAE totally legitimate as an acronym and a part of the English language, again, because we have built a shared understanding around it, it also denotes something really nice. It’s a huge compliment and it’s a way of describing the significance of someone’s role in one’s life without having to go deeply into it.
Also, you better be able to tell me what a misplace modifier is and what symmetry in writing is because those are also significant chunks of English grammar and And making fun of “improper” English is a sign of privilege and serves to reinforce respectability politics as well as alienate people who have more consequential shit to think about like how they’re going to survive poverty, or how they’re going to get a job, or how they’re going to adjust to a new Canadian citizenship identity, or how they’re going to your know, just enjoy their existence because again, language rules are interesting and cool and beautiful and fun to study, but functionality in communication is the only truly and inherently necessary component of language.
Since today is Fan Expo, I’m going to do a super quick overview of the making of my Batgirl masque! The styrofoam head came from Value Village around Halloween and the paper towel/plastic bags just magically appeared in my kitchen one day.
Stuffing the mold with paper towel helped make sure it ended up big enough to fit my actual head, since it's bigger than the styrofoam one. The biggest challenge was making sure the paper cache stayed in place to dry.
Author’s note: I’ve wanted to write this essay for a long time and happened to have the opportunity to for a Disability and Sexuality class. “Unforgiven” is the seventeenth episode of the 2009 teen television drama series, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, which deals heavily with the topic of adolescent sex, and portrays a wide variety of characters (Hampton, Ara ta, & Priestley, 2009).
This includes the character of Tom, the son of a very religious yet progressive family, who is played by Luke Zimmerman and has Down syndrome, as well as Tammy, Tom’s long-term girlfriend, who is portrayed by Michelle Marks, and has cerebral palsy. The Secret Life of the American Teenager confronts a variety of important and often downplayed issues from a socially progressive perspective.
Although audience reactions indicate significant distaste surrounding these characters, Tom and Tammy’s intimate relationship exemplifies well-done and socially conscious disability representation (2009). It turns out they were just swimming, so Tom’s mom asks them to let her know when they are going in the pool, for safety purposes, and at 1:07 in the YouTube clip tells them “…and don’t have sex” (Hampton, Ara ta, & Priestley, 2009).
Tom jokingly swings a finger after his mother as if to say “righto!” and when she is gone, he and Tammy follow-up with a discussion of when they will be ready to have sex. Tammy lets Tom know that before they can have sex they must be married, and after that she will only engage if she “feels like it” (Hampton, Ara ta, & Priestley, 2009).
Tom and Tammy’s representations in the show lean toward a social model of disability perspective. During this discussion of sex, the issue of disability is not raised by Tom, Tammy, or Tom’s mother; rather, the characters all discuss it in the context of any adolescent relationship that has the potential to become sexual (Hampton, Ara ta, & Priestley, 2009).
One of the major criticisms of the social perspective is its tendency to “assume what it needs to prove,” meaning that there is an assumption that all disabled people are oppressed; as well, the social perspective is problematized by its white, male origins (Iozzo-Duval, 2017). In particular, Tom is a main character throughout the series and experiences a wide array of complex personal issues, including the death of his father, and the navigation of his romantic relationships and desire to have sex in a family context that stresses the importance of abstinence.
This is exemplified in the present artifact, as Tom and Tammy engage in an honest discussion about if and when they will be interested in having sex (Hampton, Ara ta, & Priestley, 2009). Tom is more than just a token disabled character; rather he shows that people with disabilities are not only capable and desiring of sex, they are also capable and desiring of the social intricacies that surround having sex, a fact which is often discounted (Saber, 2008).
Many social movements, including the disability rights movement, take on what can be considered a “second-wave feminism effect” in that they are initiated by and focused on highly educated white people, and in doing so forget many identities (Iozzo-Duval, 2017). Having a storyline centered on the sex-life of a black woman with cerebral palsy is one of The Secret Life of the American Teenager ’s best examples of “doing it right” and shows unprecedented intersectional representation of a very atypical character.
“Unforgiven” also takes on an air of intersectionality by allowing Tom and Tammy to portray gendered banter (Hampton, Ara ta, & Priestley, 2009). This scene is problematic in that it portrays a very hetero/informative interaction between a man and a woman; however, in this case, I think it can actually be considered a form of inclusion.
According to Scott’s 2014 work, men with physical disabilities are emasculated by virtue of inhabiting bodies which are considered abnormal. The exclusion of disabled men from conceptual spaces of appropriate gender performance can be considered a form of social oppression.
It can be argued that Tom and Tammy are not socially oppressed in the show; however, in the deep, dark, and very sad social and conceptual space known as the Internet comment thread, these characters face extensive discrimination. This struck me as interesting and deeply inflammatory, as Tom is the only main character whose existence they felt the need to question.
Why do I have to see disabled people when they make me uncomfortable because I’m an ableist bigot?” Out of respect for myself I have chosen not to delve much further into the slew of problematic comments on this and other comment threads; however, it takes only a few seconds of skimming to experience the extensive verbal abuse that is aimed at both Tom and Tammy. The use of the “R-word,” expressions of hate, and the utterance of death wishes/threats from Internet users makes it very clear that while the characters are quite liberated on television, they are still deeply socially oppressed in reality.
Hampton, Ara ta, and Priestley’s 2009 episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, “Unforgiven,” takes on a social model of disability perspective which portrays the characters of Tom and Tammy as impaired, though not disabled. It does so by allowing these characters to experience complex emotions and life events, including a debate surrounding if and when the two will have sex.
Although these characters are not portrayed as oppressed in their own world, they face massive discrimination from viewers. In spite of this, Tom and Tammy are a powerful example of “doing it right” in terms of disability representation.

That being said in some ways it has started to feel like it’s only ok to be mentally ill a couple of times a year via grandiose social media posts (to be clear, I love those and I’m so amazingly proud of the people I see make them, it’s amazing and it’s beautiful, but I don’t want them to be the only way to talk about it), and even harder, it feels like it’s only ok if you’ve beat it… if you’re a success story. Unfortunately, the rest of the year, it’s often considered not really appropriate to discuss mental illness… Responses are often “I don’t know what to say” or a very clear show of discomfort… And that sucks.
It is stigmatizing to act as if mental illness isn’t a part of every day life. I do really well in school, I do a lot of extracurriculars, I’m confident, I’m super extraverted and socially competent.
We’re not only sick when we’re crumpled on the floor mid-breakdown, unable to speak or leave the house. Mental illness is chronic and while it is treatable, it will often persist throughout the person’s entire life.
But that doesn’t work with what it really is, and this idea that it’s inappropriate or awkward or wrong to talk about on a daily basis is the driving force behind stigma. At some point it was really easy, but somewhere along the road it turned into this 20-step process that I just can’t find the motivation for.
It’s not an aesthetic choice as much as it’s apathy and it’s an inability to want to take care of yourself… Considering how much daily grooming is expected in western society, that’s a significant impact on one’s life and it’s pretty demoralizing. I don’t know what my personal values are, I dissociate regularly, I have emotional impermanence.
Alternatively, you can’t separate the eggs (or if you’re vegan, the apple sauce) from the cake. Often times, particularly in teenagers, mental illness goes unrecognized and untreated until someone realizes what it is and how it needs to be addressed.
Leaving one untreated may impact both the person’s behavior and the reactions of the people who spend time with them. Those reactions in turn may impact the person’s behavior and feelings, and further exacerbate their condition.
And again, that makes you cringe, and feel sad and awkward, and all manner of bad stuff. I’ve mentioned a lot of the sad, inconvenient parts of my experience, but I also want to let you all know, it’s not all bad.
It’s not that I don’t understand the mainstream culture and it’s not that I can’t relate to feeling that way. But it’s hard to watch people occasionally share a hashtag and have them think that makes them the perfect ally for the mentally ill.
I want to be able to talk about how nice my therapist is on an everyday basis without people glancing sideways at each other. I want to say “sorry I can’t come because I’m too anxious” and not feel like people will just scoff at my stupid excuses.
It’s an everyday part of a lot of people’s lives, and they should get to feel normal about talking it. Reacting to discussions of someone’s mental illness with discomfort may serve to invalidate their experience or signal to them that they cannot trust you to support them.
I also didn’t grow up interacting with makeup in a way that made me understand it very well, so throughout university I’ve just been kind of smudging things on my face and seeing what happens. This has culminated in a really sweet and versatile clubbing look, and many wildly successful selfies #thankful.
I thought some of my tips might fall into the DIY/sustainable living category, so without further ado, here’s another blog post I made in the bathtub! I, like many 20-something-yr-old makeup enthusiasts, have found comfort, joy, and sex appeal in winged liquid/gel eyeliner.
Typically, I stick with Mabel line’s Master precise black pen liner, however as my current iteration begins to run out, so do my Buy Random Crap funds. This means I have A LOT (like not that much, but definitely more than the average human) of black/gray/purple/blue lipstick, which I unfortunately can’t bring myself to commit to every single day.
Amethyst (bottom) and Alien (top) are two of my favorite shades of Liquid Suede. Before I started making this post, I actually did my eyeliner with Stone Fox… however, I immediately misplaced it and couldn’t find it to take pictures of.
For the most part, I don’t really brick with brushes, however, I definitely recommend the investment (this was $4 at my school’s bookstore) when it comes to one of these little guys. I’ll be honest with you, this Body Shop pallet represents 70% of all the makeup I wear.
The best thing this pallet has had to offer me is the very cool, dark brown in the bottom left. My vocabulary falls short of any technical knowledge here, but what I do know is that warmer browns don’t work well with my complexion, and I’m better suited to use shades that are closer to gray when I contour.
And then I get at that highlighting shade (with a different finger) and smear it on the bridge of my nose, as well as along my upper cheek area. It’s pretty baller and blends well when I apply it to the apples of my cheeks using my fingertips in a semi-circular motion.
If you wanted to get one that you didn’t most likely steal, you could go to any drugstore and check out their makeup section! So then I like to rub this little thing all over my face and take weird looking bathtub selfies.
As a human who over-tweezed/waxed for nearly a decade (the nerves under my eyebrows are DEAD) I am overjoyed to be able to showcase and enhance my natural brows and have that be trendy as heck. Though I am truly blessed with hello thick/dark brows, I still have those little sparse patches that tend to detract from my overall #look.
So occasionally I like to whip out the old contouring/eyeshadow palette and apply the darkest shade to my brows (disclaimer, peeps with lighter natural eyebrows might want to search a little for a shade that works well, however, eyeshadow can be super cheap, while brow pallets tend to be a little more $$$.) So you might end up looking a bit like this by the time you’re done applying most of your makeup with your hands.
I’ve wanted to start a blog for over a year at this point, and today in the bathtub, I finally found the motivation to do it! I think a lot about sustainability and hope that by blogging I’m inspired to try harder on the whole reduce/reuse thing.
Something cool you might not know is that you can use the tail end of your bar soap (you know the little nub that it’s kind of hard to scrub with) by putting it in a bottle of water and making liquid hand soap! I’ve also been told that it’s one of the best products for caring for new tattoos, but that hasn’t been my personal experience, so no comment.
I haven’t tried it, but I’m going to go ahead and assume it would be a fine substitute for grapeseed oil in this recipe. Another hot tip: bathing in bio oil is sweet, and it might be a good addition to this recipe if you have a lot of scarring or discoloration you want to get rid of on your hands or body.
(A little tangential, but still interesting:) However, there are some specific benefits to using lavender oil, most notably: its soothing affect(effect???? This quality makes lavender oil a super nice addition to any bath or other cleansing experience, especially if it’s before bedtime.
(Shoutout to my boyfriend’s mom for somehow finding me PURPLE ROSE SHAPED SOAP?!?!?! I can’t help you very much with that… The only one I could find to fit was literally the top of my kitchen soap dispenser.
