Yesterday was a mix of emotions- I received some very awful news from uni (news which I should have been given in September, and not after over 6 months of constant pushing for answers) which basically means I'm up a certain creak without a paddle. But despite the massive amount of stress its going to cause me (not just physically but mean I need to find money a student nurse with no other financial support doesn't have) I'm not going to let it defeat me, it will be worth it when I qualify.
Granted this behaviour is commonplace with me- but still warranted the very rough shoving past him so he got the message that his behaviour was NOT acceptable and yes I had noticed.
I'm not sure why the general male population (and a few females) feel its their duty to make woman feel uncomfortable like that but I don't deserve to be treated that way. Today it might be simply staring. but tomorrow its touching (which has happened and just ended up with a man with a very bruised 'ego' on several occasions), and who knows where it will stop. Woman (or indeed men) are not pieces of meat and we will fight back from any unwanted attention; and should not be made to feel it is in anyway their fault that they receive unwanted attention from pigs.
FYI this is the outfit I was in:
Dress: Primark (I think)
Tights and socks: Primark
Don't worry my metabolism hasn't kicked in just yet- I did have a cardigan over the top of all this.
This leads me on to some good news- I finally received an answer form the eBay seller i moaned about (and despite some very rude messages where in the end the information I asked for several time has still not been given) I received my creepers- WHOOP!!
This spurred me on to making tofu scramble for the first time- and it was very very tasty.
In addition to that (when I met my boyfriend for lunch) I picked up a second hand pair of brown DMs for 8 pounds as well as an amazing brown bag.
So finding these in my size is fantastic. Joint first with the best item I've picked up in a charity shop, and I'm wearing them today in a very Denis the Menis themed outfit- that I will post later as this post is already so image heavy.
It just shows that although some truly awful things can happen- my optimism really pays off, and I end up having a day full of positive results.
