Fuck I need a good paying job. like I only have just enough until december (then after I’m saving for the summer months, like I literally hate summer because no student finance and they dont give you any to cover those months) but I need to learn to drive and I need to get a new laptop because this is a peice of shit like srs. and I have a new found taste for alcohol so I want to be able to do stuff.
Okay so I messaged mum like. telling here how much i have/will need over the next few months and Its like. can I just borrow the money you’ve given me for the deposit for a bit longer after I get it back because then I can pay for everything up until december and I can give it back to you then. like. if I get a job anyways I can pay it back earlier but I literally cant guarantee I’ll be able to get a job.
like my goal for the next few months = be able to live away from home without draining my parents for money. like I literally haven’t been able to do it so far. like last year my parents were giving me like 300 a month because student finance wouldn’t give me nearly as much as they do now and also the strudent flats are fucking expensive. and it was going fine last semester until i decided oh lol lets go to fucking denmark for a semester while still in a contract for a flat and have to pay for two rents LOLOLOLOL.
fuck it’s 1am and I have to be in class for 8:45.

YUP. Well not even ALL the money, just like. a little bit extra a month, like I’m not greedy, just 100-200 a month, like seriously. I just want to be able to pay my rent, be able to eat nice things, be able to occasionally do some nice things/visit nice places on the cheap. and being an adult.
I sincerely hate money.
Benedict Cumberbatch made it on that list and Laverne Cox didn’t and I’m about to live up to my url really soon
So my university had a ‘stress-free resort’ station set up today to help students combat the stress of finals week.
There was a coloring table
complete with Lion King coloring books
There was a lego table
also, free massages.
This is the most wonderful thing that ever happened in four years of college.
Our school should do this

So the internet just gave my tumblr name a whole new (literal) meaning. I was alerted to a photo of me gathering massive attention via a friend who linked me to a Reddit post titled “Don’t worry guys, I’m taking hipster to the next level.”
Apparently some guy on the train uploaded this photo to twitter it has been spreading like wildfire since. Surprisingly when I read the thread on Reddit a lot of it was positive/supportive. I’m surprised by how unfazed and genuinely funny I find the negative comments. People’s theories as to why I am dressed like this, and who I really am are also really interesting.
I’m dressed like this for a number reasons. Firstly, and fore-mostly, I genuinely like the clothes I am wearing. I’ve described my look as “anywhere from hipster chic to kawaii gangsta Harajuku princess”. This is the epitome of the latter. I love sailor moon, I love pink, those converse are kawaii as fuck and yeah fuck you I’m wearing Prada sunglasses. I don’t really dress like this all the time, but I wish I did more often. I mostly don’t because I want to keep the look fresh. I wore this outfit because I had an art exhibition at my college and wanted to express myself.
I also find men’s fashion extremely limiting in both types of clothes, cuts of clothes and colours. Women have so many beautiful options. So I pillage their aisles a lot because I wanna look pretty.
This was also a statement. As an artist I think fashion is incredibly important. This day, I wanted something that not only reflected my personality and artistic sensibilities but also have some social commentary. A lot of my work, or what I want my work to speak about, is sex and sexuality and notions of gender and gender roles. How many of you knew pink actually use to be associated with boys, not girls? Personally I think the idea of “This is a boy colour”, “This is a girl colour” or “Barbies are for girls”, “Power Rangers are for boys” is dumb as fuck. Creating social and cultural boundaries does nothing but limit the potential of a person. By dressing like this I am breaking that boundary for myself and attempting to reflect that sentiment.
Keeps getting better. Rock on, man.
