After a week where Trump became president and hundreds upon thousands of women stood together to march against hate and misogyny, it has been a mixed bag of emotions. After a recent, awful, experience with homophobia (which you can read about here), seeing yesterday’s photos has given me hope as well as the courage to continue fighting against discrimination and injustice in all its forms.
On a side note, FYI I will be shaking up these Sunday roundup posts, so they are a little bit more flexible and more exciting for me to write. I hope you don’t mind.
The Good Wife, a series about the wife of a disgraced States Attorney and how she reinvents herself without him. It’s a bit of a slow start and definitely not the most thrilling series I have ever watched, however, I am inclined to stick with it and see how it progresses.
Small Great Things, Jodie Picoult. After a labour nurse is discriminated against by a family due to her race, she finds herself being sued by the family after the unfortunate death of their baby. It’s a very powerful (and disturbing) read about issues of race, and one that is so important in this current political climate.
- Being Lonely Together, Dreaming Again – a fantastic post that accurately captures feelings of loneliness
- On Comparison, Ambition and the Race Against Time, Windswept Wishes – Carina beautifully summarises thoughts on comparison, feeling inadequate and rushing to complete life ‘milestones’. A read for all 20-somethings!
- Moon & Mor, Salty Sea Blog – Like with all of her posts, the photos of Cornwall are just breath taking
- I’m So Proud to Be A Woman, Shiana Jarvis – echoing the thoughts of me and how I am so god damn proud to be a woman
- Birthday In Berlin, La Coco Noire – As I have a complete desire to travel to Berlin, these photos make me want to go even more!
- Roasted Banana Muffins,Pastry Affair – don’t they just sound (and look) amazing!
After having it recommended on Twitter, I downloaded The Serial podcast and I urge you to do the same. This podcast follows the true life story of murder victim and questions whether the person who was convicted of the murder is actually guilty. It is really well explained throughout as well as utterly addictive.
Best moment of the week
Watching the parades of women all over the world stand up and fight.
