I am running Race for Life 5K this year for Cancer Research in July, I’m really excited! It’s a fantastic cause so if any of you have spare pennies please donate via my just giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/simonepatrick :)
Pretty much describes my relationship with study!
Trying to take a selfie of my back was pretty damn hard! So for those who haven’t had the pleasure, this is Pumpkin :) #tattoos

Slowly replacing the negative thoughts with colors and beautiful things.
I am trying to replace stress with calm! If I think back to my sensory deprevation, then I can hopefully find some inner peace!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I have no romantic partner in my life, but recently I’ve had to shed a fair bit of self hate so I think it’s also important to remember to love yourself so you can let others like and love you too!
You are a wonderful person deserving of love, especially from yourself.
next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
Sensory Deprivation tomorrow!
I am going into a sensory deprivation tank tomorrow. My friend recommended it, apparently it’s supposed to work really well for anxiety and stress and produce a sense of relaxation that can’t be found anywhere else. To be honest, I am really nervous & I think I’ll probably have the light and music on for a while, but I am really excited. I’m naturally a worrier, I’ve suffered major anxiety & can still get stressed over the smallest things. Through trial and error, I have found things that help with stress and anxiety. I find yoga really beneficial, chamomile tea is a treat, writing things out when things get on top of me and planning ahead when I have deadlines to meet are all helpful. I’m happy to try any stress relief that comes my way. So Sensory deprivation/floatation here I come! I will post my reviews.
I need feminism because “Blurred Lines” (a sexist song that reminds a woman that “she knows she wants it”) was the top selling song of 2013.
As a music fan & a feminist I am disgusted by that!
