Girl, you’re a star. Don’t let anyone try to make you do that boring choreography. “How will I inspire the world, then?” ask them. “If I’m doing the same boring dance as the no-brain next to me, no offense, how will the world be reminded that the most fun is had by those who think for themselves? By those who quite literally dance to the beat of whatever drummer they want?” And if he or she persists, telling you that you have to learn the rules of dance before you can break them, ask them, “Have you broken them? Have you inspired an auditorium full of bored parents to laugh, their eyes wide with joy, at your distinct expression of yourself? No. You’ve learned the rules, stuck to them, demonstrated your ability to follow them over and over again, and for what?” For nothing, girl. For nothing. (Via DailyPicks.)

  1. She’s the Karate Kid of tap dancing.

  2. This is off-topic, but I wanted to share that I finally saw Saving Otter 501 this weekend. CAN WE TALK ABOUT WHEN THE OTTERS GROOM THEMSELVES??????? And how baby otters hang onto their mamas? And how the otters bang the crabs on hard things while looking around, like, “NBD, just chilling, banging a crab on something”??? Uggg, OTTERSSS!!!!

  3. This girl is my joy and my inspiration. She is everything I ever wanted in the child subject of an internet video.

  4. I didn’t think I could ever feel cheerful again after this dude stood with his groin pretty much in my face for 20 straight minutes on the train this morning. Get this child a medal!

    • catweazle, are you sure you aren’t me? Because that happened to me this morning too. Although it was only for 10 minutes.

      • We are sisters in pain. MEN OF THE WORLD: be mindful of where your junk is in relation to seated passengers! You may be surprised by how much we DON’T want it in our faces! If we do, we’ll be sure to let you know!
