The uninteresting ramblings of an anonymous girl in an overly connected world. My random, boring life in Korea. Thinking "out loud" through writing is the expression of choice.
If you REALLY want to find love with a man, then every single DAY, you MUST be practising heart openness.
You MUST be practicing relaxing your facial muscles when you tense up out of fear.
You MUST practice connecting not just with MEN, but with human beings.
You know that though, don’t you?
I know you know that, deep down.

On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence.
People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
TARGET, you’re doing it RIGHT!! I forgive you for that credit card debacle we had last summer.
My previous employer gave me the privilege to work with some awesome trans people a few years back!
I need to remember this one. I really want to use it sometime. But I am too nice. So they have to be doing something reallly bad for me to use it.

Just put the coconut oil on my face. It was kind of a thick paste right now because it is not warm enough to melt into oil. Not only did it take off my mascara it felt AMAZING on my skin. If you would have told me before coming to Korea to put oil on my face I would have thought you were crazy, especially because of my history of acne.
Dumped some cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. Damn, that stuff is strong! I should dilute it a bit more next time. YOWZERS
My dinner tonight is the following:
Can of tuna, half can of tomatoes, handful of green olives, a bit of salsa, bit of mayo, sprinkled with vinegar and random spices to taste.
Dipping tortilla chips in it. Tried it cold and now I put it in the microwave to try it hot. I feel like this would be a decent low carb meal if I actually had some lettuce instead of tortilla chips. Also trying to quick soak some chickpeas, but maybe I will use them another time. I’m hungry now.
