Every white feminist should be up in arms about the veil ban in France.
If we are to demand respect and freedom for women, this must include all women, and must not have limitations. If we are to fight for the right of a woman to wear a short skirt and not be sexually harassed or judged, we must fight for the right of a woman to wear the veil as she pleases, and not…
France please read this and please interiorise it
the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came…
Alhamdulillah I’m so happy for everything. I don’t even know why. I don’t even know what changed but it feels like my life perspective has shifted a whole 180. I feel happier and more motivated to do whatever :) . This summer has been the best in about 6-8 years. But it’s like nothing special happened, all contrary I spent most of it working all days during the week at both of my jobs. I have almost completely stopped binging since coming back from Mexico. I have, but the time in between each binge gets longer and they aren’t as intense. Thank God. And that has definitely helped my body (my sis tells me I’m so skinny all the time :DD) and my MIND so much. Like instead of worrying a lot in anticipation, I take action more often now. InshaAllah I can keep this up while in school. It will come SO in hand especially now that I’m doing all classes in my major. And I got my old job back, I’m so happy. I worked today and it was like I had never left. It came so automatic to me; sorting the carts, then shelving. And everyone was happy to see me back.
OMG speaking of my job, they have sooooo many new resources like online magazines and language things that they didn’t have before. So I don’t have to carry my Arabic books and stuff for when I have long breaks between classes. I feel super motivated. Motivated for everything. I love how clothes look on me. I love it when I can identify letters without having to flip back pages; all it takes is practice and consistency. I love eating ice cream and cheesecake and being able to stop when I’ve decided I’m done.
The one thing that I feel like I fail at still is keeping in touch with people. I don’t know why this happens. It’s been over two weeks since I last texted my BFF. WTF, best friends don’t do that. I really want to be sociable and have my crew but whenever anyone wants to hangout I look for excuses not to go. I need to get over this. I don’t want to be lonely all the time. Space is good and all but I also want to enjoy being young with my friends.
I’m still perfecting my workout schedule for school. I still start classes at 9 am (por pendeja y no saber escojer otro horario, assshhh). It’s still under revision what I think will work best for my body but all are going to be 40 minutes each day. And I must do cardio everyday because I feel awful when I don’t. InshaAllah I can find the best plan.
Maybe what I needed all along was a change of attitude and I’m glad I finally came to it.
Other happy things: I am totally head-over-heels in love with the Prada Milano perfume. Today I wore it and everytime I moved I caught its scent and it made me feel so elegant. My brother’s baby loves me. Es super cariñoso conmigo, he hugs me and puts his cheek up to mine, aww my Christito <3. Going over to Susi’s after this to check up on her. Operation Maintain Meaningful Relationships is on full blast :)
