Sometimes I’ll be stalking people on facebook whilst naked in bed/ in the bath/ on the loo and then I realise I’m naked and looking at people that I know. Then I wonder what would happen if these people actually saw me naked.
Sad marine biologist fact: I have two resumes. One for applying for marine science positions and another for applying for bar jobs. There’s nothing like using your education to pull a beer.

As I come to better understand what feminism is, I am slowly realising that a. I am much more of a feminist than I originally thought and b. people that I thought were feminists eg; my own mother, my boyfriend arnt actually feminists at all. For obvious reasons this is leading to some tension in my life. Because y’know I didnt have enough of that already!
I would just like to point out that my life is a crazy mess right now.
i am beautiful
i do not need makeup
or high heels
or a man
in my life to make me beautiful
but if i want to
i can wear makeup
and high heels
and have a man
and still be beautiful
i do not need your judgements
if you dont like something i do, don’t do it yourself
you have no right to try to stop me

* things to do before breakfast = nothing.
There is this myth that working out before breakfast is good for your body and makes you burn more kilojoules.. but its not true! It does trigger a higher initial burn because you’re trying to work your body out with NO FUEL (Would you run your car with no fuel?) but over a 24 hour period it actually leads to less Kjs burned than if you had eaten a nutritious breakfast beforehand. Plus, working out after breakfast gives you the energy to work harder!
If I have to read another book/see another show where the 20-something female protagonist is some floozy writer/artist/curator/ in new york trying to make it, harping on about how hard she works when really all she does is bang pathetic men not worth her time and whinge..I am going to throw the stupid thing in the shredder. I am so sick of seeing these people made into heroines, they are fucking pathetic role models who dont know how to work a hard day and make bad life choices. Can we have a book about a woman in science or marketing or law who ACTUALLY works her ass off, goes to the gym then goes to work then goes to a work dinner/ conference to make connections for her career then works a shitty night job in a bar where people treat her like her IQ is 4 then collapses into bed. A woman who has shit happen in her life but deals with it like the strong independent woman she is- even if sometimes the only way to deal with it is to eat a whole jar of nutella and sob.
