Being patient at work is consistently a struggle. We don’t have a lot of set processes so things kind of just happen haphazardly. I often get worked just dumped into my lap which is very annoying but I try to make it work out because I am gaining so much experience at this job, being a one woman social media department. So I try to learn to be patient and understanding.
Yesterday I was running around my neighborhood in broad daylight when a homeless man reached out and slapped my arm. He did it intentionally because when I screamed at him he just laughed and walked away. He knew I was trying to get around him so he decided to scare me just because. I am SO sick of people making feel unsafe. I am tired of being small and weak and unable to defend myself. I am tired, most of all, of people thinking they can put their fucking hands on me.
This world is unkind to women.
Mixing feminine and masculine pieces is really the basis of my style. I love bulky sweaters and combat boots and short shorts and crop tops. I like leather jackets with mini skirts. Big flannels with tights. I shop in the men’s section at H&M. I buy all my accessories (phone case, earphones, undies etc) in pink. It makes me more versatile and able to explore all kinds of new styles. Right now I’m really feeling the looks from Straight Outta Compton for the fall. Over the summer, I was all about the witch aesthetic. Changing up your style can do wonders for a girl’s self-esteem.
