In which I have big shoulders and a love of learning

The top I am wearing in these photos has pretty much the exact same shoulders as my sweater-dress a few posts ago. I absolutely love big poufy shoulder things. I hadn’t worn this for nearly a year when I brought it out the other day. It is a white top with a brown stain on it. Happened in the wash one time where it came out worse than it went in. However my long hair and scarf covers the splodge up so you’d never know! Except that I just went into great detail about it…

I’ve spent a huge amount of time this week thinking and reading about feminism. I am always interested, but lately it feels like there has just been so much to talk about. That’s why my previous post is about Christians using the term ‘stumbling blocks’ to justify keeping women down. But I’ve also been reading about calling people out of their privilege and how telling people not to do so aggressively can be a form of silencing. All of this might make me angry about the world, but it does make me really happy to be still educating myself. Over my cheese on toast at lunch I was considering how much I feel like I am still learning since uni, and not just how to use office software, but writing better and understanding society and theory. I am so glad that I’m still loving learning and getting better at it.

I'm not really sure why I'm keeping the picture he took of me taking my jacket off, but it works as a transition

Look! No jacket!

It's another picture of my face

This is a rare occassion when I am wearing my second pair of glasses. I usually wear the brown and turquoise ones but I was breaking the red ones out to match the colours in my outfit. I think my usual pair suit me much better, but when I was shopping for them the sales assisstant made me feel so silly for spending about half an hour trying on nearly every pair in Specsavers. If I'd had another half hour I might have gone for another pair I'd actually wear! And that's an insight into my indecisive shopping style.
