So basically I haven’t been on here for a few days – no posts, eeeeeeeek! But I haven’t really had much to talk about recently. So instead I’ll just give you a basic summary of what I have been up to for the last few days.
I have seen my aunt, who lives in Portugal but recently visited, three times.
I ate two ice creams – one Nobbly Bobbly (my secret beach favourite) and one strawberry Cornetto (I personally prefer mint but I won’t complain).
My beautiful baby brother clearly said ‘I fell down’ to me yesterday and then blew me kisses for understanding his words which was adorable. The comment was in response to me asking him ‘what are you doing down there?’ after me finding him casually flat on the ground.
I have finished watching the final season of Desperate Housewives. I have started watching Awkward and I have been working my way through Criminal Minds season 4 (currently on episode 11).
I managed to offend a pro-choice blogger. I sincerely believe that the author had misinterpreted my views when really my opinions were reflecting on abortion in the UK rather than the US where it is naturally a much bigger debate. Abortion should not be relied on – pure and simple. If you don’t want to have a child but do want to have sex then there are many other options out there. The author of the rebuttal claimed that I was “slut-shaming” which I have come to understand means shaming people who engage in pre-marital sexual encounters (I never mentioned marital status) and promiscuity (I never mentioned that either) and using such terms as “if you don’t want to have kids, don’t open your legs” (again – definitely did not say anything of the sort). I support abortion and I feel that women should be entitled to it as an option but having it there is not an excuse not to be neglient. As I said before, if you don’t want to have kids, you don’t need to abstain and you definitely do not need it to go as far as to require an abortion – there are pills, implants, injections, condoms (both male and female), coils, other treatments and even operations to completely wipe out the possibility of you ever getting pregnant. The long and short of it is that said author rattled my cage a little bit.
Um… other than that. I don’t think anything has really happened. Oh, I can’t remember if I posted or not to say that I had gotten my stewarding job back. It’s subject to a six week probation but I’m really glad to be back in the team again this year and am really excited for the challenges of Freshers.
