lndsy with an A

sometimes when there are things flying around in my head i need to get them out! so i can sleep or at least not think about them anymore. 

i’m irritated that one of my neighbors is so rude that they would spill some disgusting-looking something all over my doormat (which is not in the way of where you walk, fyi) and then not bother to tell me, or clean it up, or offer to buy a new one. i know this is a small thing but i hate feeling like people are so rude they can’t even be bothered to own up to something they’ve done to someone else’s space/property.

i’m thinking far too much about graduate school and it needs to stop! i think i have a plan for the next four quarters, which involves me taking this summer off and then crushing it with two classes in the fall. i can’t help it that they don’t offer the classes i need every quarter! so i will just take two for one quarter and suck it up and then have a nice long break before christmas. then i can still graduate in 2015. 

sometimes i think i am being a bad friend, although i’m not sure what exactly makes me think this. there are surely people who are worse at friendship than me.

i wish adults hugged more. i know people like their personal space (i do too, sometimes), but it also is nice to know that people care enough to want to connect with you for a second. sometimes i feel like i am going to wither away without someone to give me a hug. i don’t know why. personal problem?

i have pretty flowers on my table that i bought myself because i’m not going to wait for someone else to do it when i want the flowers. 

springtime is my favorite time. 

my eyes are finally tired.

“I think we still live in a culture that assumes that men are single by choice and women are single because no one wants them.”

Sara Eckel, This is Why You’re Still Single (It’s Not Why You Think)  

i also like: “I’d like women to start appreciating what is right with them. For example, saying no to the wrong relationship can take a lot of courage, but no one ever gets credit for that. I would like women to start giving themselves that credit.”

i think this article is super helpful to me.

literally the most important show you’ll ever watch

[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]
