I love getting dressed up in costume. No I’m not talking about the bedroom you dirty minded people! I’m talking the kind that you can wear out in public. Although some girls get the two mixed up. In the town that I grew up in, Halloween parties were an excuse for everyone to go all out. It was great fun to see everyone dressed up.
Over the last two days, the Rockhampton region has received close to 500mm in rain. It rained non stop for the last two days. My backyard looked like a swimming pool. Thankfully my house is built up a little bit or I would have been fighting the water out of my house. Many people in the region were. The large amount of rain in a short amount of time meant that essential services were lost to some regions. Some areas lost electricity and water. The the worst happened…the internet died. If it had happened on the 21st of December I am sure it would have caused a panic of epic proportions. Instead it just caused boredom and no outlet to voice our frustrations. Nearly 24 hours without internet = Longest. Day. Ever.
If the ‘fashion world’ is to be believed, plus size starts at size 12-14. I call fucking bullshit! How on earth are we supposed to portray to our children that size isn’t everything, when a world that is so dominant to a teenager is telling them that they are ‘overweight’ at a size 12-14. There is so much outrage…and yet nothing is done.
All of the ‘bully chats’ when I was at school told us to ignore the bully. They just want attention. They just want a reaction from you. It will be better if you ignore it. Is it really? None of my recollection of being taunted from school is that ignoring them is good. I’m a stewer, I sit on things until I explode. Clearly ignoring it doesn’t work.
