I know one, she won't order a beer when we're out cos 'it's not ladylike'. And when i suggested it she made a ****ing awfully loud little sneeze, she said , "Puhlese, i'm more delicate than that, it's not lady-like.".
I wish I was a delicate little flower of a girl.
But this morning I woke up hungover, and was stacking woodfor like 5 hours.. all the while looking forward to me beer.
I spose it's a matter of yer upbringing? Is it?? I don't know.
I've always wanted to be a delicate little flower but my mum bought me up to be a wood stacker & independent.
I just want to be a delicate female who's main priority is how me MAC foundation is gonna slip off in the humidity on my Gold Coast holiday.
One fabulous thing i have inherited is her love of perfume,
coco chanel. mmmmmmmmmmmmm
the pressures of being a lady :./
hi, i love you
mainly because you're you but also because i've been thinking about this stuff a lot lately, you're so good at these coincidences.
i've been wondering why i find it so difficult to stay friends with girls, they all seem to irritate the **** out of me? i find them so dramatic and competitive and mean. i've always found guys much easier to be friends with. and i was always a tomboy too even though my mother tried to steer me in the other direction. haha i remember once when i was six years old, i had two groups of friends, one of boys and one of girls, and one lunchbreak the boys asked me to play cops & robbers and the girls asked me to play my little pony and i chose cops & robbers. i hardly even had to think about what i'd rather do. my friend rebecca (i've told you about her, we're still friends in a very distant sort of way) was soooo mad.
but anyway. i think that that story/scenario is very telling about who i am now, i basically have two close female friends - and one of them drives me ****ing nuts and i'm having a break from her right now, for my sanity - and something like five very very close guy friends. and that's the way i like it. of course it sucks when i get crushes on them occasionally but that's life.
and it's so ironic because my mum has been driving that "ladylike" bull**** down my throat all my life. so in a way it's not surprising that i went completely in the opposite direction. and also i've been considering the fact that i never had any positive female role models growing up, i think role models are really important to kids, i mean i never had anyone to look up to and i'm fine, i really like who i am now but i think a positive female role model would have been beneficial to me. another point of irony - i consider myself a feminist in a big way but in reality i mostly can't stand women, especially in the workplace. it's always the same ridiculous competitive petty bull****. glad i'm pretty much the only female employee at my work.
on the other hand, i don't like beer, i like dresses and pretty things; i guess it's about finding a balance you're happy with.
anyway sorry for the essay, but it's YOUR thread and i know you won't mind. in fact you're probably the only one who will read this post. and i'm pretty happy with that. <3
