Got this off a friend’s facebook. So true.
"I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved."
"Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions."
Today turned out unexpectedly good for me. Went to the doctor which only took about 15 minutes before I was out of the clinic. The average time in and out of the clinic including waiting time is about an hour or two? Took my time to roam my neighbourhood shops. Woving in and out of food shelves just looking at…food. haha. But never buying anything except for a few pastries.
Back at home I really took my time cleaning my room and just throwing everything that is unnecessary. It felt good being at home and doing things you have meant to do since forever. Without the pressure of essays or meet ups hovering over my head. Took little naps in between while clearing my stuffs. It felt good letting ma have her girly time while sis was at school and I was in charge of fetching the little one. Seeing her small face all smiley and happy as I made my way to her school bus. Having my bestfriend dropping by after work and catching up even though we’ve spend the weekend together in the jungle. Then ma came home and joined in too with the little one in between. Ended off my sick day with doing a bit more cleaning.
It felt really good to be at home and half slacking and half cleaning. I guess I really needed this since god knows when. My simple Tuesday.
It’s not all rainbows and butterflies. Trynna keep it real.
Oppression is cooking being “women’s work,” while the overwhelming majority of top restaurant chefs are male.
Oppression is fashion being a “silly girl thing,” while the top earning designers and CEOs in fashion are male.
Oppression is reducing women to consumers profiting a male system, even in fields that we supposedly dominate.
