As a female, I have felt, lifelong, that my worth is primarily based on my physicality. The externality of what is seen. Rather than measure the internality of a good heart, a developed thought, or a quick wit, I am faced with a societal mirror to only judge what I can correct on the outside. Perhaps others may see the worth of my non-physical strengths, but I believe I have been brainwashed to subconsciously value beauty and looks over smarts or intention.
This is a recap of the Disneyland vacation my mama and I took in December 2013. Having just finished exams for the semester, I was anxious to get away. This trip was the definition of a guilty pleasure. Disneyland, at Christmastime … What more could I ask for? And it’s actually not too guilty a pleasure, hence the millions of publicized photos you’re about to see. We had the best time and it was so fun to act four years old with my mom in the warm California “winter”.
Last Sunday, Tim and I were lucky enough to have a free day off from the responsibilities of adult-ish life. No school, no interviews, no preparing for interviews, no commitments at all. Naturally, we decided to drive out to the Rockies.
Finally have made my own little space on the Internet.
My life is not very exciting but lucky for anyone who may be reading this, I’ll get to expand on such things even more in the future on this little blog.
Sharing, learning, inspiring — let’s aim for that.
