I had the pleasure of interviewing David Oyelowo for SheKnows. He spoke about his responsibility as a role model and representative:
“I don’t have the luxury of willy-nilly doing whatever I feel I want to do in the heat of the moment. I know that what I do has ramifications… political, social, cultural, for my kids [and] for the world I live in.”

I started something new. Check out Mediocre Ryan Gosling, a meme Tumblr where we’re bringing fantasy men back down to earth.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Totally enjoyable. There was a little too much about the Upright Citizens Brigade that I didn’t feel I could relate to – it was a lot of name dropping, fun having, and stuff people who are into Improv would enjoy – but other than that, truly pleasant read. She’s personal but doesn’t divulge a bunch of secrets. There’s some solid advice but also some vulnerability and doubt, and that’s cool.
Read if you want something breezy but pleasant and smart.
