Proud of my first cannelloni attempt! Next time, gotta add more water so the cannelloni tube doesn’t get chewy. 
Loved the salad. 

Getting good food grades is my life now lol.

Never knew I could be so terrified of the possibility that I might have to go back to the hospital that I’d get anxiety attacks.. Thought I just hated it..

Trying to think positive thoughts.

- out for a month
- no spicy/oily foods (damn)
- watch out for vomiting, no flatulence & fever.

"THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL YOU WHY":
-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10
-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced
-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11
-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”
-Because I started counting calories when I was 14
-and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school
-Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16 -and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes
-Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22
-and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle
-Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men.
-Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way.
-And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone.

Anonymous: A cow doesn’t have the same sense of shame and self-awareness as a human does. It doesn’t give a shit if someone artificially inseminates it. If a cow literally raped another cow it still wouldn’t give a shit because it’s A FUCKING ANIMAL

cleanbodyfreshstart:

This is absolutely disgusting and I am so fucking disappointed that a human actually thinks like this.

This person lives under a damn rock if they’ve never seen even a photo of a happy/scared animal. They are capable of feeling, and most definitely have maternal attachments, fight or flight reactions etc.

"I done…" No.
The wrong use of their (possession), they’re (they ARE) & there (position/place).

Alas, I have finally finished ‘And The Mountains Echoed’. Definitely not one of his best books, I absolutely do not see the need for EIGHT character perspectives in 402 pages…. But Hosseini still remains to be an incredible writer. 

I love the short and intimate acknowledgement section from the author at the end. 
While unfortunately in my case, E is not a romantic artist by any means (remember that spaceship you drew with white out on one of our anniversary cards… LOL), and the only time he serenaded me was about two and a half years a go with Usher’s ‘U Got It Bad’ in his 4x4 bedroom doing those slidey hand movements he does when he dances (“Said I’m fortunate to have you girl, Want you to know, I really adore you”.. I bet you don’t remember as usual sigh lol but it always gives me butterflies recalling that moment), buuut he has always been a great verbal poet. The words he writes down on paper don’t compare for some reason lol. Nothing for me to eternalise but photos..That I take -_-..
But I know, I don’t need it. He loves and appreciates me more than words could describe. I’ve always felt the same. 

Missing you all the time poo bear. Come home sooner than you say pls.

All the needle stick holes, bruises, scabs and swelling/bloating on my body make me feel…. a tad depressed.. 

On the plus side.. my belly button is looking more like a belly button! And from the last time I changed my dressing, my drain incision area should be closing up nicely with no infection or ooziness. Plus, I used to have an ingrown hair bump (for about 2-3 years lol) that I couldn’t get rid of but they cut into that area for the surgery and now it’s gone haha. 

Doing some easy body weight exercises to get my core working a bit more, maybe get the swelling down? Fingers crossed.

Every time I make delicious smoothies for breakfast I always feel so bad for the people who choose to count calories and have egg whites for breakfast and a salad with chicken for lunch. Those poor people who count carbs… While I’m here drinking all this sugary goodness. Whenever people find out I’m vegan, they instantly claim how hard it must be and how I don’t have many options for food. But the thing is, I absolutely love all the food I eat; I’m alway satisfied and I never feel guilty. One of my wishes I always made was that I could eat as much as I wanted but never gain any fat. And that is the luxury I have on this lifestyle. Every time I want to eat something- I do!

dis is true!!

It hurts every time. Every week when you leave, when I catch myself asking “are you heading home now?” when this used to be your home, when family time really only means a few hours once a week eating together chit chatting about the trivial. I know it was for the best, that I wouldn’t be able to do the things I’ve been able to do if you hadn’t left, but mum is going to be alone when she’s older, and weddings and funerals and birthdays are awkward and lonely and sad.

A broken family ruins everyone beyond repair and out of it emerges someone completely different.
