We love interesting people, as long as they're on a screen.
I looked all around me and I saw faces that I I couldn't relate to, speak to, open up to. In this modern world, my wants were so vastly simple and thus so quite different that I placed hands around my words; sensored them just enough to fit in. And when I couldn't stand it anymore, I ran. My nights I spent wondering about the universe and all the stars our eyes meet on the night sky.
I no longer wanted to be understood, all I needed were the trees. To be mad, to be mad and free.

Same with constant busyness. When we have so much to do, it can feel like going around and around in circles, moving faster but getting less things done. That’s at least busy for busy’s sake. A lot of key ideas from Karen Nimmo’s latest book, Busy As F*ck. The big ideas from this title will feature in our next newsletter 😁.
We’ll let fly at people for telling offensive jokes (which alright your allowed to since humour is subjective) but not at someone who uses their disability or disease that affects them as some form of punchline and how they can’t walk
Society set their priorities straight
Love this quote. Too many scenarios that this quote directly applies to lately within my life. I get it, no one likes hearing the word no or having their requests turned down. In fact it’s sometimes difficult for myself to even say no to someone else because I don’t want to hurt their feelings. But at the end of the day I as well as other women should not be feeling guilty for saying no. This is because just like men we have the right to also decline and to decide what to accept within our own lives. We are allowed to put boundaries on the interactions we chose to have with others and should not have to settle for someone else’s requests just to say we have someone. We are allowed to have our own independent voices to speak and our own independent minds to think for ourselves. So men who tend to disregard that please listen up and be respectful to when a woman declines your requests to constantly hang out, to dance with you, to buy her things, to come back to your place etc. This is because by her saying no shes exerting her own opinion to honestly express to you how she already feels. Basically she’s not interested and you should get the hint to accept that answer. If you then choose to ignore her no as a response you are not only being disrespectful towards her but it also shows your lack of respect towards other independent choices women make within society and your support for old patriarchal values that only benefit you and other likeminded men today. Perhaps this is a sign that it’s time for society to reflect upon what the definition of the word no means and how it’s meaning shouldn’t change when it’s said either by a man or a woman. #respectwomen#nomeansno#genderequality#modernsociety#speakup#sorrynotsorry
