I think my mother is afraid that I will be like her. She warns me against her missteps and when sometimes I conferCertain insecurities to her,She turns to me and says,Don’t do the things I did — let your mind shift, your body rearrange. Don’t try and fit a model figure, add or take away a bit. Fashion changes but you don’t — please just take my word for it.
I forget what I wanted to do, what I wanted to say,I guess it can all wait for another day —My head is spinning and it has been for days ever since I first saw the sun’s rays. And I prayed and I prayed that that light would pierce my skin and would touch the riddled flesh within,My own defenses turned against me, tired. Tired of keeping the world out and a black hole in,Tired of being surrounded by people in a room but alone in a skull.
Do not tell her she can’tBecause she will. Do not tell her to stop because she will push harder,Do not tell her to slow because she will run faster. Do not tell her she should settle down and find a man,Do not tell her to work less or care more about the bitter words from your mouth. Because when you see this woman running you see a force of nature at work. When you see this woman lifting she is a mountain. And when you see her fighting she is a storm.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
