#MeToo

I know that I ultimately don’t owe anyone any explanations about absence and lack of posts; however I also have this innate inner need to do so – I don’t like being misunderstood.

Everything will be below the cut as there’s going to be talk of sexual assaults and harassment.

I don’t want to see your before and after… (BoPo blog)

Just a heads up that this blog is gonna contain fat-talk, real-talk, weight-loss talk….everything. So if you think any of this may be a trigger to you then proceed with caution. I’ll put it all under a cut ❤️

I hope you’re all having a great week and have a great weekend.

This blog is dedicated to anyone (male or female and anyone in-between or outside those binaries) who has to fight the urge to hate themselves whenever they see a friend or relative posting before & after pics and eluding to fat being ugly or less than… You’re all amazing and deserve to be happy at every size.

You’re a Miracle

This is just in case you need it… Whenever you need it…

If you ever think this;

No…. Because I’m meant to be here… Just like you are.

I know we all go through existential crisis on a regular basis. I know we want the planet to stop so we can get the fuck off because just WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING?!

A Cheeto reject with a bad patch of camel hair on his head who couldn’t run a business without going bankrupt and ran away from serving in the forces for some ridiculous bullshit reason is president of the USA and thinks healthcare is only a privilege for the rich not a basic right for everyone. Is more worried about sorting people into which bathroom to use by what’s between their legs than stopping children who just want an education from being shot while reading their study books.

The UK is being run by morons who seem to think cutting everyone’s money while raising their own is the way to go (yeah, good one..) while systematically making sure getting the health care and emergency services we need is harder than ever before. Blames the disabled and decrepit for being lazy and not working harder… Or working at all but barely pulls a five hour day themselves and even that is behind a desk. Would happily spend £400 pp on breakfast or lunch but chastises those on a low income for treating themselves to a fucking Starbucks coffee….

And that’s just two countries on this blue marble floating in the infinite.

…. But I also know just how many of these reblogs (on original tumblr post) won’t be ironic, won’t be for laughs, won’t just be a “lol me” or “same”… They’ll be genuine; they’ll be people wishing they weren’t here and never existed because they believe life would be better without them.

I’M GLAD YOU EXIST.

You are here for a reason and it’s totally 100% okay to not know what that reason is. Just trust that the universe needs you to be here right now… The universe wanted you to be created and that’s why you’re here.

The universe believes in you! I promise!

I believe in you.

I know I’m just some random person on the internet and this all means jack shit to you; but I still believe in you and I always will.

You deserve to be believed in!

You’re amazing!! You’re not perfect and that’s fine because nobody is. You’re YOU and that’s enough… Nobody else could ever be you – how amazing is that?! Nobody can ever replace you either.

Nobody could ever take your place in the universe, on the planet, in this life, right now, ever…Because its shape fits only you. If you weren’t here and never existed there would be a weird blank spot. The universe would keep trying until it helped create you.

Life isn’t easy and it’s not fair and that fucking sucks!! But the fact that you’re here right now, on this planet in this universe at this time is a fucking miracle! Do you know the odds of a sperm and ovum making YOU? Fucking billions-to-one!

I don’t know if you believe in miracles…. So just go look in the mirror cuz there’s your amazing face…

Believe in miracles and you believe in yourself!!

Things will fall into place. Honest.

Why I don’t care… 💍

…about The Royals / Wedding.

It’s been a while since I posted and I’ll be honest, I’m an amazing procrastinator and I’ve also been enjoying time with my fiance and dealing with some personal stuff. I will blog about the personal stuff but not just yet.

So on to today’s topic… The Royal Wedding. It doesn’t matter where you go online it’s all that 90% of the media are talking about qnd in a few months there will probably be a baby announcement and we’ll get more of it… I had the terms “RoyalWedding”, “Royal”, “Markle” and “HarryAndMeghan” all black listed on Twitter… Apparently they didn’t care about that and shoved it down my throat at every chance.

Read on to find out why I just don’t give any f*cks anymore…

An Epiphatree! (I forgive you, you’re still a bastard though.)

Yes… That is a Simpsons Movie reference – because it felt right!

You ever have those moments where you read something and go through a thought process and –BAM– shit hits you like a truck?

Yeah, well I just had one of those moments at 2am while scrolling tumblr because I still can’t sleep at night (that is a WHOLE OTHER BLOG for the future. Not now.)

Why weight-loss praise makes me feel conflicted.

This is a subject that I haven’t come across myself, personally, aimed towards me. Ever. I’ve been through this second hand with friends who have lost weight, for whatever reasons, and it’s something I have spoken to them about; especially those within the BoPo community.

The mass consensus is that it leaves us feeling any/all of the following..

  • “Squicky”
  • “Squiffy”
  • Uncomfortable
  • Conflicted
  • Angry
  • At a loss
  • Generally confused

When Music is about Money

This is a topic I don’t talk about lightly; especially when it involves a band that I have held in high esteem, up on a pedestal above everyone else and have defended to the hilt every single time needed.

I’ll still defend them against the b.s. I’ll still buy the music. But this will possibly be the last time I see them live unless many things change…. The main one being monetary.
