The Hunting Backlash aka Death Threats Are NOT Okay

I love animals. I love animals so much that I no longer eat them and haven’t done for a number of years; 17 vegetarian/pescetarian and 3 vegan, if you want the strict background. 855 more words

Auckland to Wellington on a bus - why not?

Song of the day: Michael Buble – Home

I was required to go down to Wellington on short notice; thus, with even a Jetstar airfare surmounted to ~$100 one way, catching an Intercity bus seems like a much better deal, despite the challenge of sitting on a bus for 10 hours straight (?!?) It wasn’t the first time I took this bus, previously I took the night ride thinking that I could sleep through that 10 hours and wake up at 7am upon Wellington’s dawn. 254 more words

So Keep Breathing; Go on Breathing; Just Breathe...Stand through the pain you won't drown

There are a lot of directions I could go with this but I have like ten minutes before I need to start looking for my keys and throw food in my lunchbox on the way out the door and pray I am not running too late…’cause late and behind are the only kinds of running I do…even though I tend to be an excessively early person…who needs gas in their car anyway? 553 more words

I bend but don't break and somehow I get through…these are the mysteries I don't understand

(Crawl—Superchick…Planes Trains and Microwaves—GoFish)

I’m not going to write the post I really want to write, because I am smart enough to know that expressing myself transparently is a punishable offense because LG is a princess and therefore unpunishable and I’m “only” a student so I don’t matter and can be abused and that’s okay, proper compensation is strict punishment…because I didn’t use to fight back and they trust they’ve pushed me down enough that I won’t change that now…I am SO tired of passively enduring the abuse, but there doesn’t seem to be much of a way out besides waiting until I can RUN away from it and never ever come back…sure, I still pretend my school is a good place because I am diminishing my opportunities for a job if people know how awful my school is, because who cares what your grades are if your grades came from a bad school…I just want to scream from the mountaintops a warning to others to not follow my path…but I can’t…and besides, how am I going to get to the top of a mountain? 1,126 more words

Many hearts will mend here

(Build a Barn–Stephanie Pauline :) )

One thing I have learned in life is that it is important to learn how to build a bridge…not a physical bridge, although I can certainly see the utility in building a physical bridge in certain situations…but the kind of bridge you need to build to get over it…Yeah, people die and other assorted bad things happen in life, but staying sad and/or frustrated and/or angry does no one good. 578 more words

The 'Y' in Generation Y

Today is my birthday. More specifically my 23rd birthday.  I spent the day working part time in a sports shop, coming home to spend the evening feeling sorry for myself and crying into the glass of wine whilst watching The Hobbit. 1,018 more words
