Vomit a rainbow!

NORMS, NORMS, NORMS!

Everyday our life is dictated by the norms of society.The way we look, the way we talk and what we do are all consequences of the rules implemented by society. But, who cares?

The last time I checked there was no set of rules in life and we could play the game our own way. Besides, the closest thing to restricting me from doing anything in life is the law – and that’s a good thing! Essentially, we are birds. We crack out of an egg, stay in the nest until our mother has nurtured her baby bird into a big bird. And… What do big birds do??? THEY FLY!

We are free to do whatever we want to, whenever we want to and however we want to… apart from killing the people we hate, stealing the newest Chanel perfume and drinking alcohol from the age of 2. Regardless, of those restrictions… the sky is the limit and you can get there in whatever way you choose to.

There is no survival guide for life (because trust me, if there was I would be following it religiously) but that’s what make life so beautiful: not knowing what’s coming around the corner and indulging into the unknown. People think you need to take baby steps to achieve your dream, but why can’t I take adult ones? People think that life is all about the materialistic things, but how come the happiest countries in the world are some of the poorest? People think that the colour of my eyes, hair or skin dictates my success in life, but why can’t I achieve what I want to achieve regardless of who I am? Sometimes… Human beings need to stop thinking so much and start acting.

I apologise if today’s post has turned out to be completely weird and sound like utter nonsense but I have had 3 exams today and my brain is literally in another world full of crazy loving hiptators (you know who you are) so I really don’t know what I am doing.

Regardless I simply wanted to say this:

Life is not about what the people see, it’s about what the people can do. If they take one step forward, take five! If they climb up a building, climb a mountain! No one can tell you how to act or live! So if they do… shimmy to the left and smile, because you’re worth it!

I don’t even know if that made sense but I hope you enjoy your life vomiting rainbows, riding unicorns and eating candy from the trees because… well, there is no because.

International Women’s Day!!!

WHOOOP WHOOOP! SHOUTOUT TO ALL MY LOVELY LADIES OUT THERE! #08/03

All right, let’s calm down a bit. Many of you may be wondering what the ‘hype’ is all about?

Well, today I want to talk about women, ladies, girls and females. Today, I want to splurge out and type up a wonderfully crafted piece of work that basically keeps on praising women with a bunch of amazing achievements and positive phrases that complement such a gorgeously graceful gender.

Why? (since I still haven’t answered your question…) This is because on the 8th March – it was International Women’s Day.

This was the day in the year where people could simply praise all the ladies in the world for all the amazing work they have done and motivate them to carry on channelling their energy to accomplish many more things as the year slowly unravels. (NB: this should apply to everyone, everyday)

But why? Why do women receive so much recognition? What is the purpose of this day?

Sadly, in the past and even in our current society, woman suffer from constant discrimination and face many challenges from gender inequality. Not everyone perceives women as being strong, intelligent and passionate individuals in the world therefore they are vulnerable to constant oppression. To make matters worse, this doesn’t just occur at work, but also at school and at home – it’s everywhere!. Little comments like “Ladies first” or “Let the men do the work” don’t intentionally mean harm but can be perceived as derogatory, hence gender equality constantly lingers within our daily lives.

Rather than scapegoating women as people who belong to domestic services and people with little value in the social hierarchy, we should be pleased to see them as world leaders, athletes and medical professionals (to name the least). Consequently, changing attitudes are essential in removing any negative stigmas associated with women. Everyone is entitled to the right to work, to education and to live. Therefore, it constantly saddens me to see that extremist groups attempt to spoil  a sacred bond between such beautiful things e.g. education.

However, with the power of many great women such as Malala Yousafzai and Emma Watson we can make a change with campaigns such as #HeforShe (please watch if you have the time : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4MR5z8ybBU). Although the voice of the women is important, it is vital that the voice of the men is also acknowledged as well. Rather than trying to fight a war with 2 different groups, we should unite together to conquer gender inequality and end this war!

“Two heads are better than one…”

Therefore receiving more support is pretty amazing.

Malala Yousafzai got shot at in the head and nearly died for campaigning for women’s education, however, this hasn’t deterred her from achieving her aim. Instead of being afraid of what people or extremist think… Let’s make them scared about the new revolution that is beginning to prosper. Let’s make them scared about gender EQUALITY!
