I hate Valentine’s Day!

I hate Valentine’s Day!

I woke up today in one of those “fuck everything, I hate the entire world, I wanna die” sorta moods, so I felt the need to run to my closet and pull out every article of clothing I had that could convey that sort of attitude to people causally looking at me as I walked down the street. I wanted a “DO NOT FUCK WITH ME” sorta look, because quite frankly, life itself is too much for me today, let alone the screwed up people that inhabit it. What I ended up with is this—some ripped jeans, crosses, and heavy jewerly.

Another random day at work…..and yes, all of my photos are taken in the restroom at my office, lol.

Anyways….

Men have called me a man-hater, a feminazi, frigid, a bitch… but in my mind it always translates to, “you don’t need me to validate your existence, and that scares me.”

My weird pseudo-Western cowboy inspired outfit of the day, lol. I just ordered a ton of clothes online so I’d have some damn mail at my house, and shipment one just arrived a few days ago, so my wardrobe has had a new life blood infusion. Of which it desperately needed! I hadn’t shopped for new clothes in months, and as everyone knows, everyone needs a good shopping spree at least once a month (AT LEAST!).

Since so many items are from the same store, each hyperlink leads to that exact item.

4 year old me, rocking my favorite dress, hat, and scarf.   I also was obsessed with the piece of wool I am carrying in the photo. It was like a teddy bear to me, and I named him “Little Wooly” and took him everywhere with me. I was a weird child, what can I say?
