Gosh, I love International Women’s Day. As far as totally made up, mostly uncelebrated holidays go, this is my favorite. Right next to Donut Day and National Puppy Day. But as with puppies and donuts, Women’s Day is my favorite because more people should freaking better appreciate what it is to be a woman! Shout it from the rooftops, ladies, because we deserve to be celebrated for merely agreeing to exist in this world because holy hell did we draw the short stick.
So I’ve been feeling sort of down and out about humanity in general lately. Not to be too depressing, but there’s just this sense of overwhelming disappointment in a lot of ways–as I look at politics, culture, environment, religion, humanity in general. Everyone thinks they’re so right about everything all the time and no one stops to listen to one another. Blame #selfie culture, blame the internet, blame Obama, I don’t know. But we’re all a bunch of egoists at heart.
I should know. I keep a blog detailing all of my self-obsessed thoughts.
Okay so let me set the scene: yesterday, I was working from home and I had some free time. Which goes hand-in-hand with a need to entertain me, myself, and I. And another important factor: my endless fascination with the Kardashians. I mean, I’m only human and “don’t be f*cking rude” is iconic.
