After a period of profound silence, I have decided to start publishing on my blog again. I realized that the reason I stopped sharing my thoughts was because I lacked self-validation, I was ashamed of what had happened to me, and I was afraid to upset people. I am trying to be honest, I’m trying to be myself.
To be nobody-but-yourself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight.E.E. Cummings
I have found the self-labelization of ‘Bad Bitch’ as well as the absolute ridiculousness of the word ‘blovel’ a liberation. Thus, below you will find the two blovels that I have/am writing.
How to Value Your Own Thoughts is my contribution to the #MeToo Movement as I try to process my own experience with love, rape, and bisexuality.
The Bad Bitch of History is about my experience volunteering with Refugees with Action for Education as I try to understand how the Refugee Crisis came to be and what we can do to help. I am currently in Greece volunteering and in the process of writing.
