Another day. Another fat joke.

25 years on this planet and I am yet to get this type of parenting. Often I’ll have a dark thought “When I go for my appointment and I’m actually really sick she’ll take all these horrible words.”

But then I remember. She’s an Indian mum. The only things they take back have receipts.

Woman.

Woman. http://wp.me/s3stji-woman

How is it that when a woman is doing something productive for herself – learning, growing, building and such – we get the most RIDICULOUS shit said to us?

“Why aren’t you married yet?
“When are you getting married?”
“You look fat in that dress / your hair looks crap like that / maybe you should get a facial. That’s why you’re not married.”
“Don’t be so outspoken. It won’t get you anywhere.”

BLAH…

Why is Forrest Gump on? When I have to sleep? I love this film.

Just another manic monday…

12 hour shift and then coming home to type up and send out meeting minutes. This isn’t going to be an easy month.

Black widow baby

The more I hear that Iggy and Rihanna impersonator’s ‘Black Widow’ song the more I think it could really take off as some sort of bunny boiler anthem.

My hair. It’s not quite like your average head of hair. It grows outward rather than down. It’s getting HUGE.

I need trimming more like a hedge than a human being.

Faarsi phrase I was told at work today.

Faarsi phrase I was told at work today.

What’s the point?

Why say sorry? We hardly ever mean it.

I said sorry to the woman who bumped into me earlier.
Something that isn’t my fault.

I said sorry for being late when the trains were delayed.
Something that isn’t my fault.

I said sorry for someone having a bad day.
Something that isn’t my fault.

Why do we say sorry? Why? Apologies nowadays are rarely sincere. And I’m guilty of this absurdity too.

Heart

If you’re not happy on your own you’re not happy.

I want to be happy. I don’t want my happiness to rely on anyone else. But love makes you happier than you ever thought you could be. And it hurts more than you ever thought you could get hurt.

This. This is the sari I will wear. Any advice on make up or nails? The great colour wheel in my head is saying blue. But maybe not? I am useless with these things, especially when it’s for myself haha.
