Hey! I'm just your average 18 year old ballerina from North Carolina who is obsessed with Barbra Streisand.
Feel free to message or ask me about anything. I've been told I give good advice and I love getting to know my followers so don't be a stranger! Also, if you find something you think I might like don't be afraid to submit it!

Barbra’s birthday is always a bit hard for me because it is the same day as my mom’s birthday so I feel obligated to prioritize my mom’s birthday but I will make this one post. I am so very thankful for Barbra. She has pulled me through some very hard times in my life and without her and the Barbra community on tumblr I don’t know what I would have done. Barbra has brought me so much joy and I am confident that she will continue to do so. I would also like to recognize on this special day the colormevictoria blog (Victoria) for being the blog I discovered during a google search on Barbra and excitedly checked everyday for a few months for new posts before finally making my own blog. What a journey this has been!

A very happy birthday to you Mrs. Barbra Joan Streisand Brolin. Thank you for… Everything

On being called a perfectionist: “I am proud to say I am. But there is no such thing as perfectionist, and I found that out when I was 15 years old…I wrote it in my journal, that perfection is imperfect. So it has that humanity, like human qualities. Otherwise it’s cold, right? You can just strive for perfection. Another word is excellence, to strive for excellence.”

24 reasons to love Streisand - A birthday countdown24 → her birthday & lucky number

#21. Her intelligence and curiosity

In a very recent interview, Barbra called herself a “perpetual student”, and I tried to remember her every project and her level of involvement with them, and just thinking about it blew me away. 
This is a woman who once traveled to The Netherlands to study certain painters to better work with the colors in Yentl. Needless to say, she also studied the Talmud. 
She knows her politics and has deep comprehension of the causes she chooses to lend a voice to. Have you read her latest article on CO2 and organic farming? 
We all learned she was a straight-A student and it’s been said she has an IQ of over 160… But those are just statements… What matters most are the wise words and the outlets she’s chosen to express all her intelligence. 
If you need any proof, just watch The Artist As Citizen and remember her voice has always offered a lot more than that gorgeous singing.

#22. This duet and this quote

“David [Begelman] took me to see [Barbra Streisand] in Las Vegas, when she was just starting out. I was curious, because I never heard so many people complaining… ‘God, is she ugly!’ Everybody was saying, ‘My God, I never saw anyone so ugly…’ And they said it with such force… And they said it so often that I thought, this girl must have something! And we were sitting at the table, and David was very proud the agency had just signed Bob Goulet. They had a choice of signing either Bob or Barbra, and David kept saying ‘Wait’ll you see this ugly, ugly girl!’

And Barbra came out. And after her first number I looked at David and said ‘Well, you blew it…’”
