You can read all about it HERE, and it’s as awesome as it looks and sounds.

From the article:

Made With Code is a new Google initiative to motivate future female programmers. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women, and Google is spending $50 million over the next three years to change those numbers.

More than 150 high school girls turned out for the event, including local chapters of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Black Girls Code and Girls Who Code. Kaling, a writer and actress, emceed the premiere, which brought in Google X Vice President Megan Smith, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton, iLuminate creator Miral Kotb, Pixar Director of Photography Danielle Feinberg and UNICEF Innovation cofounder Erica Kochi.

Come on, let this be a thing. I want to see female coders become such a thing that brogramming culture dies out completely. The prevalence of sexual harassment and bullying perpetuated by the current culture annoys me.

Especially when it’s done by people who know what it’s like to be cast out because they were different…

Friends, I’m sad to say this is the end of a happy chapter in my life.

Many of you didn’t know I was in a relationship. Indeed, I entered it in such haste that it could almost be said that I slipped and fell in. It was a hot and heady time, like new love often is, I was almost scalded by its intensity.

I’ll always treasure the time I spent wrapped in its warm embrace as it moved around me.

Still, over time the warmth faded, and no matter what I did, the relationship turned cold, than icy. I will not lie, I was resentful, and couldn’t take any more. So, for my own good, I ended it.

We had some good times, and maybe one day we’ll get together again.

I’ll miss you, bubble bath.

Guyliner, in case the word eye is too feminine for you

With the invention of the new material that absorbs all but 0.0035% light, rendering it essentially too dark for the human eye to see, it is finally time.

Yes, it is time for my goth friends to all adopt their final form and become ninjas.

I was browsing Twitter a while ago and saw the trending hashtag ‘#ReasonsYouCantFindAMan’.

I had a quick through the responses and saw that they were generally some mean-spirited variation of ‘becoz u r a hoe’, so I decided to come up with some other potential reasons why you may not have found a man yet. They ended up becoming some of my most popular Twitter posts to date.

Enjoy!
