We had a Pride Walk at school today, where we celebrated and supported the LGBTQ community. It was so heartwarming and wonderful to see so many people come together to support this school-wide tradition. There were so many beautiful, colorful balloons. At the end, they were released into the sky as a symbol of hope.
I just feel so passionate when it comes to this topic. I just think that everyone deserves love and happiness. I don’t even understand why something like ‘gay rights’ has to exist. It’s just basic human rights, isn’t it?
In any case, times are changing, slowly but surely, and I’m glad.
I’m so proud of my campus and I love my friends <3.
Arent we Marvelous? Grandma Dom, Mama Viv, Papa Dmitri, and Baby Ozzie <3 #awards #family #marvelous
Felt semi-chic today. Had to somewhat dress up because I met my university’s president. She’s quite nice and a very good speaker.
I’ve also learned that you’re not actually supposed to eat croutons at formal luncheons or dinners. No one told me this so I was that really awkward person who crunched loudly in the middle of her speech.
I love my Little! We’re both excited for the years to come <3.
Also, note the spoon in my hand. SPOON WARS.
Formal is this weekend! We asked Hugo & Dmitri to formal yesterday. It was an absolute blast. We did a flashmob and everything, then crowned them as “Princess” and “Diva.” Oh, and branded them with sashes that said “Dominica’s Date” and “Vivian’s Date” too. I’m ever so thankful for the beautiful people who joined us for the flashmob; it made everything ten times better!
Oh, and I got my hair consultation today and took the fifty-something bobby pins out of my hair when she was finished. Dang, that lady needs to give me her hair curler because my hair hasn’t curled like that for ages.
Excited for formal, but must now buckle down and write my lab report first. Boo.
There aren’t many things going well in my life right now, but I am so grateful for my job and the people I work with,
even Mr. Douchebag, who pushes me to be a better person everyday by rising above childish arguments. Thank goodness there is only one of him.
But this post isn’t about him, it’s about how I have the privilege of doing the things that I love to do, to have gotten the opportunity to meet people I love seeing everyday. And as a bonus, I get paid for it too. But to be honest, I would do it even without the pay.
My workplace has been my safe haven this semester, and when things have gotten too rough for me to handle, it has been a place where I can just breathe and escape away from everything for awhile.
I’m sorry if I’ve been kind of down lately, but I’m determined to believe that things will get better— and I will pull out of this funk. Thank you for being patient with me, dahls.
Can you see me? Hahaha
first day of class
