I was always a feminist. I wasn’t supposed to be one. I was raised by people who unironically use the term “feminiazi”. I was raised in a church which prohibited women from being spiritual leaders. I was never supposed to be a feminist, but I always was. Before I knew what feminism was, I was a feminist.
It just happened one day. I was texting a friend, and I said something like, “I’m on the case!” And there he was. Gazing up at me from the secondary keyboard on my iPhone 5.
Sometimes you feel bad. It’s part of being human. There’s a really good quote about it in Count of Monte Cristo that I encourage you to google, but it’s something like, “there is neither happiness or unhappiness in the world just the comparison with one state and the other, blah blah you are only capable of feeling ultimate happiness if you experience ultimate despair.” I don’t speak french but that’s basically the gist of it, google it already. So, we feel bad sometimes and sometimes we just want to lean into that bad. We want to really feel it. We want to just live in that sadness and embrace it so we can someday hope to feel really happy. So, I made you this list of sad tv shows to watch when you’re feeling that specific way. (Spoilers for: The Good Wife, Scrubs, NewsRadio, Futurama, Six Feet Under, The Wire, The West Wing)
I’m going to wear it with something high waisted, I promise. I don’t have to worry about school dress codes anymore. I’m a woman in the prime of my life! I can wear what I want. Are you snap chatting me? I know what snapchat is. I’ve watched a vine before. I know there’s an Ann Taylor around the corner, but I’m not looking for any sort of tunic or silk shirt.
