Subject:help!
Time:10:54 am
does anyone have any articles relating feminism, women of colour, and environmentalism? i am doing a 1.5 hrs workshop (short, i know!) on feminism and environmentalism. i have few articles on aboriginal women and women of colour and their experiences w/ forced sterilization, as well as several articles on aboriginal ppl being over-represented on the hiv/aids epidemic. i need few more articles along the same veins as those....maybe women of colour & vegetarianism? i have an article but it's painfully academic.

thanx if anyone could help!

Subject:happy w/ myself
Time:10:57 am
i think it's been awhile since i feel like this, but,
i feel pretty happy w/ myself. it's true that i haven't accomplished all of the things that i want to, but i was thinking earlier 2day that when they say '...at least u have yr health!', it's so completely true. when i was young, i used to be so sickly that i would be in the hospital pretty often, so i never did school all that well 'cuz of it. i am happy about my body image, i am happy that i am (mostly) healthy, and i actually like how i look lately, even w/o my usual parade of hats. lately, i even liked the way i look in my only pair of grey jeans, which is pretty cool considering i hate jeans!
i'm glad that i feel like this at the start of 2008. i feel pretty confident that this year will be so much better than 2007, the shit year of my life.
also, i've been reading 'half of a yellow sun', and i really like it so far!

Subject:another rant about winter boots
Time:07:54 pm
fuck, the ottawa winter is really getting to me, in particular regarding to my battle w/ my boots. i know i've complained about it in my last post, but i am totally aggravated/crushed by what the winter is doing to my boots. i used to be so impractical about winter even 'tho i've lived in ottawa for close to twelve yrs (fuck, i need to get outta here!), b/c i've always hated how ugly winter boots were. vain, i know, but it was true. not to mention that most of them were made w/ leathers. i generally don't like to buy leathers unless they r second hand. so when i bought my boots 3 yrs ago, i totally fell in love @ first sight. it was warm, practical, water-proof, vegetarian, and pretty. now the fucking salt is killing my baby! fuck, supposedly even winnipeg uses sand to prevent slippery ice instead of salt, and if winnipeg can do that, why can't ottawa?! if my boots died on me, then i doubt i could really replace it anymore. it's made by a small swedish company, and i couldn't find my boots in their catalogue anymore. even if i leave ottawa, if i still live in canada, i would always need a good pair of winter boots, so what ottawa winter is doing is like chopping my right hand.
fuuuuuuccckkkkkkkk.
in other news, i am totally addicted w/ another television show, this time dexter. i am almost caught up w/ season 2 and i kept worrying about what would happen to dexter. i even had nightmare about it last nite!

i know that u may think that i have nothing going on for me except my boots and television shows, and lately it's been kinda true, but not always! i am still keeping up w/ my violin lessons....

Subject:TAKE BACK THE NIGHT!!
Time:05:33 pm
Whooo, it's that time of the year again! Take back the night! all of my female-identified friends who will be in Ottawa on Thursday sept. 20th should try to come, if they could. all of my male-identified friends should also come if they could, except that they really need to respect the march and march behind all of the women, or watch the march on the sideline and cheer us on!! read for the deets below!


MEDIA RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 4th, 2007

TAKE BACK THE NIGHT: ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN OF ALL GENERATIONS
Ottawa, Ontario. Take Back The Night is on September 20th, 2007. This
year will mark the 29th Anniversary of this event.
This year's commemoration will start with a rally at 6:30 PM at the Women's
Monument (Elgin and Gilmour) where, at least four keynote speakers will
speak up against violence against women. This will be followed by a march
in the streets, and an interactive info fair at Ottawa City Hall at 7:45 PM.

Women and their supporters are invited to come out in numbers and
participate in this event. There will be accessible transportation
available for those who have need for it. Refreshments will be served at
City Hall following the rally, and march. The info fair will feature Ottawa
community service providers-a great opportunity for community members to
learn about various services in Ottawa. There will also be a lot of
entertainment at the rally and at the info fair, so come out and enjoy this
event.

The first Take Back The Night events in Canada took place in Ottawa,
Vancouver, and Halifax in 1978. Since then, Canadian women have joined the
marches as a way of experiencing, for at least one night, the freedom of
women walking together without the threat or fear of violence. These events
celebrate women's diversity, visibility and strength. As Diana, a twenty one
year old Ottawa woman comments, "I have come to these marches since I was
five years old, it gives me hope that one day, women will not live in the
fear of violence. "

crying is sometime the best way to realize all of the good things that are going on in yer life. don't u think? i mean, it doesn't have to be about someone dying or whatnot, u could just cry 'cuz u haven't had a good cry in awhile, or maybe 'cuz yer old friend didn't msn u even 'tho she was online when u were online, or maybe 'cuz u couldn't find a job yet, or whatever. or maybe 'cuz u read a particularly mushy romantic femmeslash fanfiction, 'n u were in agony of the fact that u could never tell this secret to anyone else. honestly. just a good 'ole cry. like patsy cline always did before she goes to sleep.
