i keep thinking about how wrong it seems that we get up most mornings and spend the day away from the things we love. just to earn a crust. often in circumstances that negatively impact upon us.
i just bloody wish people would stop being jerks and start being more like this.

no picture does this sky justice.πŸŒ„

and in that moment, all was right with the world.😍🍦

classic northcote morning.

goodnight everybody. 😴

when your favourites love one another more than they love you, but that's okay because this.

i never really understood the need to be an angry feminist. i thought being angry simply alienated people and that a more passive style of feminism was a better way to educate people about gender equality. everyday at work now i face people i've never met speaking down to me because i'm a woman, and i am so fucking angry. i am totally enraged. there is no way i can possibly get these people to treat me better. they do not respect me, they haven't from the very first time they spoke to me, though i've always been nice and empathetic and accommodative of their needs, they never will. they continue to speak down to me, like i'm an idiot, like i couldn't possibly understand. they explain the same things to me over and over again, day in day out, in the most condescending of ways. i cannot even begin to express what a frustrating predicament this is to be in. i want this to change, i want my niece to thrive in a world free of this kind of discrimination and misogyny. i want her to be able to do whatever she wants to do in life and be respected in her choices. i don't want her to have to be angry. but i am now. i'm not yet sure what to do with it, but i get it, i understand we need to be angry to shake shit up. fuck this passive accommodative female bullshit, it's ineffectual and i have no more of it to give.

i wish people were more like dogs.

we're peeling back the blue skies.

good one, melbourne.
as a side note, i was just street harassed. on bloody international women's day! the struggle is real.

happy international women's day, to all the smart, brave, funny, strong women i am surrounded by. the women who see the injustice in the world and act on it. the women who want to make this world an easier place to exist for all women. thank you for inspiring me and lifting me up, educating me and valuing me. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
