Update one of the AA employees that drive the luggage carts,outside, circled around to where I’m sitting by the window and waived at me until I looked at him, he then proceeded to hand gesture for my number and if we could meet up to which I gestured pointing to my ring finger to tell him I was married ( I’m not married but just try and hand gesture that I have a bf). It was sweet kinda in a weird way. Ive certainly never been hit on that way before. Also should I be worried that the plane isn’t here yet if we are supposed to be boarding in a bit?
Why is it that every time I try to fly out of Boston my flight gets delayed or cancelled, rad thanks for raining on my parade Chicago…jerk
Class reunion… Went well I got to party with people who probably never would have in hs It’s an odd feeling. Not sure how to feel about it now… Meh is it time to go back to Chicago yet?
“You’re so sensitive. You’re so emotional. You’re defensive. You’re overreacting. Calm down. Relax. Stop freaking out! You’re crazy! I was just joking, don’t you have a sense of humor? You’re so dramatic. Just get over it already!
If you’re a woman, it probably does.
Do you ever hear any of these comments from your spouse, partner, boss, friends, colleagues, or relatives after you have expressed frustration, sadness, or anger about something they have done or said?
When someone says these things to you, it’s not an example of inconsiderate behavior. When your spouse shows up half an hour late to dinner without calling — that’s inconsiderate behavior. A remark intended to shut you down like, “Calm down, you’re overreacting,” after you just addressed someone else’s bad behavior, is emotional manipulation, pure and simple.
And this is the sort of emotional manipulation that feeds an epidemic in our country, an epidemic that defines women as crazy, irrational, overly sensitive, unhinged. This epidemic helps fuel the idea that women need only the slightest provocation to unleash their (crazy) emotions. It’s patently false and unfair.”

i know it’s brilliant!
last night a friend of a friend told me about how she was sexually assaulted by a cab driver and when she reported it the police asked if she provoked it and then suggested she was a prostitute….lazy fucking victim blaming Chicago cops do your job to serve and protect the citizens THAT INCLUDES WOMEN!!!!
I hear stories like this WAY too often!
this so succinctly describes my feelings on the issue
“Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form.” This quote, fuck, this quote says so much with so little.
Preparing for the worst. Just trying to remember that I can handle this adulthood thing
I hate days when i get down on myself, when i look in the mirror and see something so unremarkable it brings me to tears. I hate that on days like this I am susceptible to all the poisonous thoughts that float through the air.
