Okay i know i am not supposed to tell you this but i am failing at finding things to post about so i have made a survey of your suggestions. Its quite simple. Just fill out the sheet and click the survey/send button...
I have met an actual boy my age who thinks its girls fault if they get sexually abused or catcalled, and raped etc. He basically said "Hey if you are walking looking like a slut. Then maybe you provoked him/her. so next time check what you're wearing." That's just BS. No one ever "Provokes" someone really. It is normally that persons fault. Even if her clothing was sexual you have no right to rape, or sexually abuse someone. Now that same boy didn't just say that. Well he was supporting equality, i had no clue that equality was so different from being a feminist. I mean feminists want to be equal to mean and that is gender equality. And after every gender is equal fixing racial equality will be easier because now each gender has an even playing ground.
If this boy the so called "equalist" is so against women then how some he is a equalist. Well this is a little thing he told me:
Feminist; Want boys not to hit girls
Equalists; Want no one to hit no one
Feminists; Want to teach boys not to rape
Equalism; Wants to teach people not to provoke rape
Feminists; Want to have more rights then men
Equalists; want everyone to be equal (gender wise)
I think that is crazy. I am still not sure where he made those ideas up but feminism is for women and men to have the same rights. Also i think that the boys can't hit girls thing is crazy. Look that saying "boys cant hit girls" is from the 1920's when in schools the girls had to be little dainty flowers so the boys were not supposed to hit them. SO pretty much feminism doesn't want any one to hit anyone. And they want no rape in general and the support equality for the sexes.
I dont know really what this post was but i hope you enjoy.

There is a sickness going around called; the bad bestfriend. Or more there are many different illnesses.
Here are a few of them;
A gossip art is the kind of friend who you feel like you can tell everything to. These people have a certain likable secret-ness to them. Sadly they tend to spill your beans a little to much. For example; "Remember that time you puked on your teacher?! Ha yeah and then your crush wouldn't look you in the eye for the rest of the year. Yeah that was funny." - Friend "Oh my gosh, is that for real! Wait let me tell Alex and Sierra." - Random Person. Yeah i know what a backstabber.
Your friend may not be the right person to open up to even if its hard not to.
Don't worry your friendship may not be in danger, even if you may have some fights. Try not to always trust them... Like maybe lay off the stories that you want to stay a secret. You can still be close friends but maybe don't tell her about the time you mad out with a hotdog.
The disinterested friends can be the worst. Sadly these friends love to ignore you. They seem to not be as into the relationship as you are. Maybe they can't come out to your party because they have to be at the "movies". Yeah that can sting
Your friend may not need you as much as you need them. Sadly it's there fault.
You might need to re-think trying to hang out with your friend. They might have moved on, and as much as it pains me to say this; You gotta deal with it. Here's a saying; When life gives you lemons, squeeze then in mean peoples eyes. So yeah squeeze away.
This friend of yours may not have the time or the mind. You are waiting in a very long line for a movie you were dying to watch with your friend, but then you get a call/text saying she/he will be late. Shit what are you going to do? You wait a little bit longer to find that she/he actually can't come even though you planed this event months ago. Later after watching the movie alone you notice that your friend has posted pictures of her/him hanging out with some other friends. Wow that hurts.
Your friend ain't got time for you and that sucks. This friend also isn't very good at hiding there tracks. Even worsetey don't really care if you crash and burn.
Cry, eat icecream, chat to your mom/dad/someone easy to talk to, Read lots of books, ignore them, disfriend them,move on.
So i hope you learned a little more about some bad friends to have
A few years ago i went through the awkward stage of self consciousness. It is a deep dark cold pit and it is very hard to dig yourself out. I spent hours of watching videos or reading articles on; How to become self confident. Let's just say none of them worked and so in result i was left to my own hands. PLEASE DON'T LISTEN TO THE; STOP STARING IN THE MIRROR AND COMPLIMENT YOURSELF A LOT. It doesn't work. OKay look in the mirror as much as you need to. I think i should be braking down the steps for you.
Do a little "spring" cleaning, find all the clothing you like but never wear and put that in a box. Surround yourself with things that make you comfortable in your own body. If you are conscious about your body this will help a lot. If you only end up with three shorts/pants and two t-shirts who cares. Wear the same clothes a few times as long as they are clean. Almost no one will notice.
Diet can do a lot. I know its not like you are trying to lose weight or something but eating healthier can make you feel happier and more confident. Waking up with a clean hydrated body can make you feel so much more energized. Eating can go along way.
Like i said you might not be trying to lose weight, but going for a walk/run or doing some yoga in the morning might just do the trick. Who cares if you have lost weight but someone should care about how much more strong and happy you are. If exercise is a drag for you find small ways to work out. When you might be watching/reading something, do a little stretching. Your body will feel more loose and free making your soul fee loose and free. (Not to loose though)
Try to surround yourself with people you love or feel happy around. Make all the small people count. Try to distance yourself from the people who have brought the feeling of self consciousness to your mind. Try making new friends or going somewhere you know and love. The people around you are a big step to confidence. Take a brake from the sour people you see every day and find some sweet people.
If you are worried about your smarts this is a good step. Say you feel that your writing game is failing you; do a writing exercise every day, find a prompt and challenge your self every week. Struggling with math confidence; Try out khan academy; A online program (free) focusing on teaching math skills and trying to challenge its users (Not only math)
History?; Get some cool books about cultures and history at any book store. Don't leave em in the corner flip them open and start reading.
You can think negative if you want. Do it as long as you need to as long as you can realize you are thinking negatively. Try to think about positive thoughts for a bit also. Your allowed to look in the mirror to, but if you want to think of yourself as beautiful and badass; literally write on your mirror; You are beautiful, Badass, So cool, Smarty Pants, So hot. Now when you look at yourself you can think awesome thoughts instead of negative ones.
There you have it. My tips for self confidence. If this didn't help; sorry. If it did; Good for you/me. Have a great Monday night- Lulu
Sorry i missed art monday, i just have been really busy lately. Today though i felt i needed to do a d.i.y (do it yourself)
Okay so what you are going to need is;
copper/bendable metal band
a round mold (optional)
Now that you have all of your tools place the copper/metal (bracelet base) on the Masons stone.
Put a piece of tape on the copper/metal band. This will make it so that your stamps will be even and more neat looking.
take a metal stamp and push hard into the band. Now take your hammer and gently hammer the stamp into place, remove the stamp after 10 hits.
Keep doing this until a sentence and/or print starts to form
Now take your mold (must be firm) and start to wrap the band around it. Make sure the bracelet doesn't brake. Do this slowly.
So now you have it. Your own bracelet that you created. Another quick tip that i forgot to take photos of is;
Make sure to sand the sides of the bracelet because the copper/metal may scratch you so be careful.
Lets take everyone back to school. Now lets go back to the late spring or late summer when shorts and tank tops are all the only thing you can wear. Imagine the burning heat on your skin and the sun sizzling on your shoulders. Yeah i know its way too hot. Almost every girl can't stand the heat without wearing shorts or a t-shirt. If you live near the south you can't even wear a t-shirt and shorts. So some wear short shorts and a tank top. Whats the biggy?
Schools are the big deal. Even in kindergarten girls are told that they shouldn't wear skirts and shorts to school because it might disrupt the boys from learning. Bullshit! No boy who is five through nine will probably even think about what girls are wearing. Also they say that the male teachers might get distracted; It's not a girls fault if there teachers are pervert-y. At any age it is not okay to sexulize a girl/woman without her permission. Girls go to school to learn! Its not like Female teachers stare at six year old boys crouches so most male teachers hopefully won't.
By telling a girl this at such a young age it teaches her that she is a sexual object. No a girl is not a tomato or a pencil. She is a girl. Just like a boy is a boy. Normally schools will tell girls to "Take that off." "Put a sweater on" or "Detention." "dont come to school showing your shoulders." Guess what? What is so sexy about a shoulder.
Today in society being large breasted or having a round butt is considered beautiful. What if one year we wake up and find that having a nice wenis (The part on your elbow) was considered sexy? yeah funny i know. What made the fat muscle and bones that hold up your body and help you move (legs) sexy? What made the muscles and fat that cushion your spin (butt) sexy? What about the food source for many pooping crying smelly baby's (Breasts) sexy? Don't be asking me i have no clue.
How about instead of focusing on girls bodies you freaking focus on there brains? Yeah that would bee wonderful.
P.S great video about schools shaming girls bodies by laci green
Have a nice day
Make up, make up, make up, the structure of society. Make up is an art. As you can tell the woman above is the star of swan lake. All dolled up with glitter and lip gloss. The man above copying a beautiful black and white makeup from an old movie. Make up is not just a form of beauty, it is a creative outlet. Sure it can be something to spice up your face or try to improve your looks. Not this kind though. I dont wear make up. that is a fact. A fact that can change though. I do experiment with makeup though. I have tried to perfect the cat eye (failing every time) and put my lipstick on in a form. I am not very good. Oh well.
I dont really have a point. But i just wanted to say that makeup is for many purposes.
1. Its like painting on your face
2. It is not that easy
3. if everyone wants to look like they are perfect makeup is one thing always used
4. You can experiment
5. it looks nice (unless i do it)
6. other cool reasons
When i was seven i loved having makeovers with my friends, staying up late learning how to put eyeshadow on, etc. I remember looking in the mirror; lipstick smudged all over my lips very bright and red, Turquoise eyeshadow smeared up to my eye brows, Way to much blush on my cheeks and even more on my forehead. "You are a vision lulu." My friend would say. "Ya i am so good." i would smile. Yep i was a vision; a vision of a crazy monster queen. These memorize stick with me.
leave something in the comments if you have memorize like mine.
Ok. So, I know this has probably been noticed by millions of people, but, one day, I was searching for computer games to kill time, something many of us do. And, I realized that pretty much every site had a category for "Girl Games". And I looked at it and said "huh". I clicked on the button, and realized that they all had to do with what's presumably called "girly". Dress-Up, Make-Up, Dolls, Pet Caring, every stereotypical girl game you could think of. And I realized, society today is just plain crappy. It's getting better, with women now gaining equal rights as men, but everywhere, girl stuff is identified as glittery, sparkly items that are purple, pink, anything considered "girly". When I was in 3rd grade, I was running with the boys. Faster, Cleaner, and WAY smarter than most of them. But when I told one of my so called "friends" that my favorite color was pink, she shunned me and said I was "girly", like, who does that?! Anyway, not saying girly is bad or anything (see Lulu's Post about the definition of "Girly"). I know I'm going on a tangent here, but I'll wrap it up. Girl games are not always what all girls will like, and it's sending bad messages to gils world-wide when you say they should be playing a certain group of games, just because some people called it "Girl Games".
Until next time, Mar-Mar
Today i woke up with this feeling of joy and trouble. Not exactly for any reason except that today is April first. (a) its my cousins Birthday (b) Its the first day of a new month (rabbit rabbit) (c) because my Birthday is in April (d) because i have some pranks in mind.
Prank number one
If you have crutches around the house and/or a bandage wrap, you can say you sprained your ankle. For even more fun use paper mache and warp it around a old shoe or sock. After this drys you can wear it around saying you broke for foot/ankle/knee.
Prank number two
Just put plastic wrap on the toilet seat so that when your parents/sibling/friends/roomate/lover stumbles into the bathroom to take a little pee in the morning/night when its still dark out the pee splatters all over them. (Not the nicest prank but who cares)
Prank number three
Ask if any one wants a drink? Maybe a smoothie or cup of coffee..? instead of putting regular foods in the smoothie like fruit put; hot sauce, cheese, butter, etc. Same for the coffee or tea. When nobody is looking slip some hot sauce in and/or avocado (not that avocado is bad but it doesn't go with coffee)
And that is all i will post tomorrow Mexico! I hope you have a good rest of the day
I am a Feminist, artist, and a dreamer. I hope you like my posts! I just want to share my opinions and stories.
