I used to be a college student, now I'm just an ... adult? I'm 23. and I'm a little terrified of the future, but am learning to trust in what God is laying before me.
I'm a camp person, a food person, a kid person, a wannabe crafty person, an awkward person, and an introvert. I love warm blankets, windstorms, taking pictures, baking, tea, gingerbread lattes, violin, Settlers of Catan, being outside, a small number of TV shows that I have trouble keeping up with, and my loving friends. I think my little corner of the Pacific Northwest is the best place to live, I'm addicted to Pinterest, and spill things a lot.
*thoughts of sunshine --- because I like taking pictures of the sun. and because the sun is bright/happy/can be associated with optimism. which I like.
I don’t judge you for having sex with random guys whenever you want so stop judging me because I don’t do that. Why do people have to judge others who have different personal philosophies than their own?
roommates were all gone last night, and this morning.
but of course one comes back as I’m in the middle of eating cold pizza off a stack of paper plates and have a piece of bread just sitting in the toaster.

Michael Scott coming back to the Office, even for the last episode ever, felt like home.
Finally have reliable internet, by the way. Thank you, Based God.
So I got sent to the dean today for wearing this top. My study tech teacher said that I was “exploiting” myself and that it could be a distraction to the other students. I got up out of my seat and told her that I wasn’t going to listen to her dress codes. In a way, she was being misogynist and slut shaming and I think that’s wrong. I will continue to wear what I want and nobody can tell me not to. The fact that womens bodies are sexualized and objectified so much angers me and that’s the reason why this happened. I’m going to wear what I want, how I want, when I want and that’s it.
I was there, reblog the shit out of this guys
I’m a guy. I can’t wear a shirt like this either, even though I’m not going to be wearing a bra. it’s dress code. It’s not slut shaming. You can’t show your bra like that at most jobs. why should you at school? Yes sexism is wrong and all that, but you can’t get ‘angry at the patriarchy” because you can’t show your undergarments in public. I’m not going to wear jeans with a rip in the side or the front that show off my flowery boxers, because that’s just not appropriate for school. Have some professionalism. You can wear whatever you like at home or with your friends or whatever, yes, but school prepares you for real life.
At work you can’t have this attitude of “I wear the fuck ever I want.” and expect to keep your job. School is the same way because it’s trying to teach you that lesson. That’s unrealistic; almost any job you get is going to have someone tell you what to wear or what to do because you work for them and you represent their company. If you don’t look the way they need you to look, that makes them look bad. A tattoo parlor probably isn’t going to hire someone who dresses like a nun and a top company isn’t going to hire someone who comes to work in a tank top that shows off her bra or a guy that shows off his ballsack.
You can’t blame patriarchy for this, I’m sorry. You can’t blame sexism for this. If I wore booty shorts and you could almost see my balls through my semi transparent flowery goddamn boxers, I would get in the same amount of trouble as you, and it’s within good reason.
yes. though the comment about “exploiting herself” could have not been there, you seriously could not expect to show up somewhere very much violating a dress code and not have repercussions.
I’m great at spending my money wisely until I look at REI.
at least on Friday I’ll have a hammock and a new sleeping bag?
