Intimidatingly pretty

Papa vs Pretty’s musical style evolved from the initial fusion of indie rock and electronica of their first two EP's, to a more guitar-driven alternative rock sound from 2010's Heavy Harm EP onwards.

Papa vs Pretty has gained notable attention in the Australian music scene for their "intimidatingly tight" and energetic live performances.

And if a man tells you he was afraid to talk to you because you’re so beautiful, that probably falls into the category of #liesmentell.

They know these women are out of their league, but keep swinging away with the hope that one will bite. Maybe he was initially in awe, but he got over it and got up the nerve to open his mouth. If you’re convinced someone’s not going to approach you (for whatever reason) they’re probably going to live up to your expectations.

"Mara, none of the mothers talk to me, I smile and act friendly, but they just stare at me, and I feel ignored." When she asked how I dealt with people staring at me, I quickly told her they are only staring at me because they are wondering how someone could possibly wear some of my outfits in public. "Women are intimidated by your beauty." I don't want to believe it, but women measure themselves against other women's attractiveness.

During those few weeks when my daughter was having a particularly rough time (see section on the breakup rule), her teacher asked her what she likes to play at home, looking for a strategy to engage her at school.(This rule also held true when I returned to work after maternity leave this year: almost 4 months off, nearly 2 to really get back into the swing of things.)Speak up—with both words and actions. I’ve been working with her on using her voice when she needs something—as have her teachers—but in the process, I’ve picked up some useful nonverbal communication techniques.It’s amazing what happens when instead of asking her 18 times to eat her lunch while I go about other tasks, I calmly hand her a fork, sit next to her, and pick mine up too. We’re all taught from the youngest possible age to be nice, courteous, polite, giving.At the completion of my preschool graduation ceremony, I rushed to my mom and threw my arms around her knee, burying my face into her thigh.Sweet relief for an introverted 5-year-old from an eternity (maybe 20 minutes) of singing catchy tunes complete with hand motions to an emotive, proud-looking crowd.
