I’ve been pretty content today. I was really drained off of all my energy after the brunch but I was still in a pretty good mood when I got home. This has probably been the least anxious Sunday I’ve had in seven years and it feels.. strange.
Jasmin and I went to our first feminist brunch today, and I was really nervous earlier today but when I got there and greeted them all I calmed down a bit because they actually seemed pretty chill.
I really enjoyed being in their presence because it’s nice knowing that you’re in a room filled with people who fight for the same causes as yourself. Oh and I’m really happy that they enjoyed the pancakes Jasmin and I made! ^_^
It was a bit awkward though because it felt just like being on twitter but in real life.
I follow most of them on twitter, and I love reading their tweets, but I rarely ever tweet anything about the issues they speak about because they write it better than me so I just sit there in silence and fav/rt their stuff. I’m just really bad with words. Especially in a place where everyone else seems so much better than yourself. You feel so tiny. And that was the case but irl. So they all talked about super interesting stuff and joked around while I just sat there and laughed from time to time. It’s not that I’ve got anything against listening, I love listening to what others have to say, but it gets a bit awkward when I barely even say anything. It’s like I’m useless in the situation because I’m not really bringing anything to the discussions. I think I only said about 2-3 sentences during the whole brunch, lmao.
I guess it was kind of intimidating to go there because everyone else already knows each other from earlier and most of them have no idea who I am so yeah, lol. ;w; Oh well, I still managed to have fun and I might pop by during the next brunch because maybe I’ll be less scared then, lol. :-)
There were two huge manifestations in the city to celebrate international women’s day today - I unfortunately woke up as it all started. I had no energy to go into the city anyways, but in order to be a bit productive and get something done; I dragged myself to the library to advertise our vernissage a bit, and then I went home again, lol. I heated up some left-over food, catched up on the latest episode of MMFD, and then I went out to meet up Jasmin.
Jasmin and I did some grocery shopping together and then we went to my place and made a huge batch of pancakes for tomorrow. We’re going to a feminist brunch, and it’ll be the first time for both of us, so I’m a bit nervous but I’m really glad that I have Jasmin accompanying me. I’m really happy that I’ve gotten to know her more. She’s a delight. ;w; I might have had zero energy today, but I still managed to have a ball of fun thanks to Jasmin. <3

I’m so sorry, I’ve been really terrible at remembering to even log onto Skype. ;u; I’ll log in once I get home and then we can watch Elementary together if you want to! And if you (and anyone reading this) ever wants2talk2me; I’m ALWAYS reachable on snapchat! :-)
when men dress up as women or white people wear hijabs or darken their skin in order to “see how hard it is,” they’re simply admitting that they believe those members of those groups are untrustworthy to the point that they can’t honestly relay the reality of their own experiences.
There’s this shitty thing that happens when you learn about the reality of racism, sexism and misogyny. You start to hear it from the mouths of your parents, grandparents, friends and siblings and you can’t ignore it anymore but you’ll see how many of them will ignore you when you speak out about it.
