I’M A SHIT BLOGGER

Sorry guys

Pretty much don’t post anything anymore.

BUT Imma back to catch you all up on the sitch.

Mainly because bored but also because a little lonesome and I’ve forgotten what it’s like to have Tumbly friends.

SO: me =]

Wellllllll 4th year of Uni starts in about a month. Which is coool! I’m doing some classics units and japanese as well as some advanced english units so thaaaaaaat’s pretty cool.

Thinking about getting stuck into some accreditation exams for editing…

Thinking about applying to teach English in SPAIN at the end of this year. No justification necessary.

I cut my hair recently- not that you guys would notice. You lot sorta missed my long brunette long fringe stage. Good for you guys. It looked crap anyway. SO I’m a ranga again and I have a fringe again which is pretty much just great. OMG I haven’t posted a selfie since like…. LIKE 18 MONTHS AGO.

You’re welcome. Also the nose ring is gone *cries* because it got infected after 2 years and I rage quit because it hurt. 

I got a kindle for Christmas cause my mum is fracking awesome and CHEAP ASS TEXTBOOKS WOOO! ANOTHER SELFIE OPPORTUNITY!

So that’s all wondrous.

OH also this summers steam sale was grand. As usual I spent a ridiculously small amount of money on a ridiculous amount of games.

I got Skyrim + all expansions for around $17. Madness right?

I also got Final Fantasy 8 because nostalgia and it’s AWESOME.

Spud also bought me ALL of the Half Life games, because the ZOmbies freaked me out and I wouldn’t buy it. But predictably I love the games and I love killing all the alien zombies. Finished the first one- and the second one is so much better so far. 

I also got all the Bioshock’s and one called The Stanely Parable which was short, weird and great.

I think I might replay all the Tomb Raider’s just because I’m obsessed.

Anyway- next point of call is to get myself a PS3 because cheap and then I can play Journey and The Last Of Us, and all the Uncharted’s and so manies moooare.

But I just really suck at money.

So there you have it. That’s where I’m at. Gonna go play gamez naow.

The nicest of days

This is a nice day

Listening to acoustic music

whilst drinking my hot choc in my soup mugs

in a big warm jumper

whilst the outside world drizzles at my sunroom windows

It’s not intrusive

it’s just saying- hi there, it’s really crappy out here, but look at how warm you are, and how cosy you are, and how happy you can be from a simple combination of comforts.

Being happy is so simple for me, and I really really hope that never changes.

12PM

Image or health?

SO the idea is that the word ‘fat’ is a scary, horrible, and harsh insult, right?

Am I the only one that doesn’t find it that insulting?

Thoughts?

Really. When people refer to me as ‘cuddly’ ‘squishy’ ‘curvy’, these are all lovely. I’m more than happy to be all of these things. But it’s usually pretty obvious that these lovely friends/acquaintances of mine are avoiding one specific word, that taboo among women, that dreaded state: ‘fat’.

There are so many things I find more insulting. When people say ‘fat’ they are insulting image more than they are insulting health, and for me, being comfortable with my image- hell I like my body this size- it just doesn’t really hold any sting. My boobs are sometimes inconvenient, but mostly I just have nice cleavage. I like the shape of waist to hip and I’m really starting to enjoy large thighs on women. Plus, I adore beach swimming, and the buoyancy is simply awesome. As well as the fact that it takes over 3 hours for me to start getting cold, even at night.

So I like my body, so to call me ‘fat’ I take as nothing more than an observation of what is truly there. I am fat. This is in absolutely no way a fish for sympathy or compliments or comfort. This is me expressing my complete lack of fear of this word.

Now, to insult my health- yeah that does sometimes get to me, because I do really wish to be healthier. I am fat because I am ridiculously self indulgent when it comes to food, and pretty god damn lazy when it comes to exercise (aside from swimming). So if ‘fat’ is an insult to my health- it does touch on an insecurity.

For women to be dying so frequently of eating disorders, I really think the connection between weight/size to image security needs a solid battering. Our society has fucking harsh standards, and though it is circulated and exacerbated by the media of magazines, films, television, the change has to start with us. Women and men as individuals to accept ourselves. If we hate ourselves for our weight, it’s not a wonder we expect others to hate us for it. 

So accept yourself. Accept what you are and what you aren’t and maybe you’ll start noticing that not only do you find yourself but other women and men of varying sizes to be not only totally acceptable, but attractive.

I am fat, feel free to observe so- because I don’t feel this should be inherently offensive. It isn’t. So don’t act like it is.
