a genuine thank you

socialmedia_3

 

This post is long overdue, but I wanted to make sure I did it well. I wanted to properly say thank you and also discuss a few key points of why a thank you is needed, how I got here and not just do an empty gesture for show. This actually means something to me and I want to make sure that comes through in the post.

i’m a feminist and….

Instead of the saying, “I’m not a feminist, but”, I wanted to do a post on something more positive. Every day, people convince themselves that being a feminist is a bad thing because of the negative connotation it comes it. It’s taboo. people convince themselves that they don’t consider themselves to have that label. They actually are a feminist because the end of that phrase would be, I’m not a feminist, but I believe in the social, political, and economic equality between the genders. Today I’m talking about how feminists have their own identity and how you can be a feminist and still have character. Share what your version of this phrase is in the comments, “I’m a feminist and…”

is dress code the problem

dresscode_1

 

With the school year starting, it’s the perfect time to discuss one of our favorite topics, dress code. It’s usually the first complaint you hear about school. After a summer of wearing whatever I wanted, going back to a uniform with dress code reminded me of all the things wrong with it. There are subtle hints of sexism and body shaming. In this blog post, I’m discussing if school dress codes are the problem and what it says about our society. More importantly, I wanted to write about the impact it has on kids/students.

why writing about what you care about is important

You may have already noticed how this blog is changing. While it may have seemed abrupt, it’s actually something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I wasn’t excited to write and now I am. I found what matters to me, not that what I used to write about didn’t matter to me, I’ve just refocused on something else. The break I took and lack of motivation made me realize how important writing about what matters to you is.

my may bullet journal spread, pinterest themed!

may bullet journal.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I’m so excited for this spread because it was by far my favorite bullet journal spread I’ve ever done. I used Pinterest to find inspiration for these pages after developing a color scheme. The core colors are a few shades of blue, a bright red, a light pink, and grey. I definitely did not keep it minimalistic. After determining that I wanted to make this month extra special, I decided to start early. This took a lot more time than my usual spreads, although if you do want to see those posts, keep reading to the end for all of those links. Enjoy!

Hello Everyone! During spring break, I finished all of my homework and studying early. This led me to sew something. I wanted to do something really creative and artistic and overall new. While I was working on everything, I took pictures along the way. It’s a matching set of a sweatshirt and shorts. The shorts have a little twist to them, which was my way of making it extra “artsy”.

Hello Everyone! It’s that time again, the start of a new month and bullet journal spread! I went with a very very spring-flower theme, just to get me in the mood for spring. Winter is my favorite season, but it is ending and this bullet journal spread is my way of accepting that. I still really love how this turned out. Comment down below if you bullet journal or any questions you might have.

Hello Everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR! To start the new year, I had to start a new bullet journal spread. My last bujo ended in August, so 2019 is starting in the middle of a book. I didn’t do a whole other beginning spread, but you can click here to see that. The theme for this spread was colors and rainbow. There isn’t as much doodling, but I kept every minimalistic and played around with different fonts. Enjoy!

My November BUJO Spread! Holidays, Doodles, Calligraphy and More!

BeFunky-collage-32

 

Hello Everyone! Through all the school, stress, and fatigue, I still managed to finish this month’s bullet journal. I would probably fall apart without my bujo, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that I don’t have the time. This month’s spread is more minimalistic and still cute. I started out with the theme of fall food, but I ran out of ideas and changed it to fall in general. There was also some time to practice my calligraphy and my doodling skills. This might give you some inspiration for your bujo spread or maybe you want to start a bujo. Click on the month to see that spread,  August|September| October |.  Enjoy!

Hello Everyone! It’s already October, and I have a new bujo spread for this month. It’s fall themed, and the daily spread is very minimalistic, which is going to be very helpful since the year and stress season has started. There are a lot of doodles as well, which is always fun. I also experimented with a different mood tracker and got rid of my habit tracker to see what happens. Hopefully it can give you some inspiration for your bullet journal and future spreads!CLICK HERE, HERE, HERE,  or HERE TO SEE PAST SPREADS.  Enjoy!

There are so many common misconceptions surrounding feminism, and this post will (hopefully) clear things up. Get ready, because this is going to be a long, informative, maybe even empowering blog post! Yay EQUALITY! Enjoy!
