You get used to it, but others don’t.
You get used to reading labels and saying no, but people are still surprised and still ask you why you don’t eat meat. Enthousiastically telling you that there will be pizza at the party and then asking why you aren’t happy about it. “Uhm. Well. Vegan.” “Oh. Yeah. Uhm well we have potato chips..?”.
Closer friends do really try hard to make sure there’s something for me to eat which is really great. I have one vegan friend (in real life) and I love spending time with her because I know there will be something for me to eat there.
Being a girl means some things, but it doesn’t mean all the things people are trying to put on me. I don’t have to behave girly, I don’t have to shave. I can swear if I want, I can like sports. I can wear baggy clothes without being ‘manly’. I can do anything guys can do, just like they can do anything I can do. There are no limits in this world. Stop pretending there are.
Please don’t tell me I have to shave my legs, when guys can’t shave their legs. Please don’t tell me to change my personality, MYSELF, so I won’t ‘scare guys away’ with my ‘strong personality’. Stand up for your own rights & ignore those who ignore yours.
We are scared. Every day of your life, you make hundreds of choices. You probably don’t even notice, because of the (seeming) insignificance of small choices you make. Some choices don’t even seem like choices, but if you think about it, they are. Every single day you choose to get out of bed, to follow your routine, make breakfast, get dressed and go to work, or school. We have to, we say. But do we really?
It was great. I hope you enjoy the video (and the Vienna spam from these past couple of days… Woops).
I don’t want to ever go back to a natural hair colour, having bright coloured hair is amazing. It looks really cool and beside that, people love to comment on it. And yes, their comments are almost always (9/10 times) positive.
Last night I came back from Vienna and with every memory still very present in my mind, I decided to make a quick little guide to what to do in Vienna. Enjoy!
Beautiful buildings, long walks through tiny streets, vegan burgers in the evening & vegan pancakes in the morning. Walks along the ‘river’ banks, passing beautiful graffiti and even prettier sights. Vienna, you are beautiful.
