A Courtesy: Butt Out

Just the other day my neighbours threw a birthday party and I noticed that a couple of their friends smoked. I normally don’t have much of a problem with that except for the fact that the next morning I found all their cigarette butts on my lawn. I understand there will always be people who litter, especially when you’re dealing with cigarette butts, but is it really so difficult to throw out your own garbage? Don’t you expend more energy throwing your unwanted garbage over to a neighbour than keeping it to yourself?

It’s common courtesy to keep your garbage to yourself, not to throw it to someone else for them to deal with. What would you do if this happened to you?

In A Funk

Recently I’ve been in a bit of a funky mood. You know, days where you’re like a leech to your bed, sofa or chair. Not really having the desire to get up and go out, even when you’re in need of obtaining essentials. I find that sometimes you just need to give in to those days, just to get it out of your system; and other days you need to just drag yourself out of the house to clear your mind. Funny how our moods work huh?

How do you get yourself out of a funky mood?

Distorted Body Images: Sizing charts

I have a problem with sizing charts and its, lets say ‘aura’ (namely online sizing charts). It categorizes people into a particular group, and more often than not, into unrealistic standards. It asks for conformity. If you fit into this, you’re this. If you don’t fit into this, well then good luck out there. I dislike how they don’t take into account other body shapes. I am a pear shape with basically no bosom, so sizing charts for one pieced items never work out. And no one ever talks about such a body shape, but that’s another tangent. I understand a sizing chart is a rough estimate of how an item is to fit, but the lack of flexibility in those listed measurements bothers me. However, my main problem is with the stigma around the idea of fitting into a particular size and what that means to society.

I dislike how a number or a letter on a label has the ability to reduce us into self-conscious, confidence-lacking individuals.  It’s silly. Why put so much time and effort into a number or letter? What is your true source of happiness in all this?

And then a couple years ago vanity sizing became a thing. Another can of worms.

This is a big topic, so here’s just a little bit of what’s on my mind. What are your thoughts? Leave them below!
