Baby, I got the death rattle...


As I walked the two minutes to the bus stop, I was thinking about all the comments people have been making about my appearance lately and how shitty they make me feel. Even the ones dressed up as compliments, it is so strange to me that we so freely make remarks about people’s hair and weight and the amount of makeup they do or do not wear, about how they dress and what they choose to look like. When did my body become your topic of discussion? When did my desire to change my hair colour turn into a debate on what “suits” me or what makes me look more whatever?

As I was thinking this, a guy driving past in a van shouted something about my legs, quickly followed by a guy on a scooter yelling at me. And I know I’ve been thinking about all this a lot lately so this has upset me more than usual but why the fuck do men think everything is for them to comment on. I don’t get dressed with anyone in mind but myself and if I wanted your input, I’d fucking ask for it. Though I wouldn’t hold your breath.

Low self-esteem has followed me into this week.

This song helps.

I never sleep on Sunday nights. There’s just something about them that keeps me awake.

It’ll come as no surprise that Kat was my ultimate idol.

I’m pretty much the master of handling things completely wrong.

I need something like this in my life.

I need something like this in my life.

I’m very conscious that I have to wear a saree in less than a month and pretty much my whole midsection is going to be exposed and as much as it fucking pains me to give a shit about how my body looks, I decided I’ma get back on track with eating properly - which I have been doing very well for a long time but lately, I don’t know, I don’t eat for a day and then I’ll eat all the biscuits and whatever. So to go to lunch at a Greek restaurant today was, well, it was amazing, but pitta bread and halloumi and feta and hummus was probably not ideal…

I also got this - though it&#8217;s sliiightly the wrong size but it&#8217;s not exactly for practical wear and I love how it looks so I&#8217;m okay with it.

Boux Avenue had no bras in my size but I do now own these.

I’m eating my dinner and am reminded of the perks of living with cats: Cat hair in everything.

What if colleges only made you pay the percentage of tuition that you failed, so if you got an average of 86 for the year you’d only have to pay 14% of the tuition, but if you got a 94 then it’d only be 6%. That way we’d be rewarding the success and even if you flunked the semester, you still wouldn’t have to pay for ALL of the tuition

You are the future. 

Please run for president

that would be really unfair for people with learning disabilities not to mention the way state scholarships work now if your gpa is below a certain number you lose your financial aid(ours is called HOPE) so many people can’t pay because they don’t do well on a semester and wind up never going back because they lose HOPE. your chance of being able to seek higher education shouldn’t be dependent on how perfect you can or can’t be

I COMPLETELY agree. For many people, getting a high grade is not always possible and just the very act of trying to attend and graduate is achievement in itself. Plus, there is already so much competition and pressure, this would make things so much worse. The rich kids who have had private education and the luxury of parents at home who can help tutor them and pay for extra educational activities would be the higher achievers and pay less, whereas the kid from the poorer background and terrible state school would end up paying more.

The Higher Education facilities in the UK are made for wealthy people. It’s appalling. 

A guy just winked at me. He was wearing a shirt that said, “Better blow job than no job”.

What does that even mean?!

It has been a very low self-esteem day.

"I think the concept of virginity was created by men who thought their penises were so important it changes who a woman is."

The most perfect conclusion about how “virginity” came to be I’ve ever encountered.
