Some of the things I will be writing about in the near future kinda demands of the reader that she has a basic knowledge about what the hell I’m talking about. So this post is an attempt to provide that, even though I have no idea to organize and explain. But we’ll see how it goes once I start writing!
As you may already know, I’m studying for a Master’s Degree in Cultural Studies. It’s a huge topic, naturally, and it is (alas!) based on philosophy and the history of ideas (I’d personally would really love to see a bit of anthropology, biology and psychology in there as well, but what can you do). And what these studies aim to do, for the most part, is to expose the structures we live by.
I have made some changes around here, high time that I did.
First of all, and most importantly, I’m on a new domain! It suddenly started to feel so wrong, so limiting, to write under my full name. Not to protect myself, really, I’m all for authenticity and integrity, but to protect everybody else. With my name and my picture up there, it would be too easy to identify actual persons and places if I started to write as freely as I really wanted.
The sun is shining outside.
The snow and ice are melting.
Nature is preparing for springtime.
And all my basic instincts are wild with joy and excitement. Go get some seeds, they scream. Plan the loveliness that will grow in your garden! Go! Go! GO!
Only, this time, I have no garden. And I was prepared to skip this one, just close my eyes and maybe get back on track sometime later when I have managed to find an apartment somewhere, but somehow it seems so completely, insanely impossible to do!
So, spring is coming.
I feel it in my veins. I’m getting restless, full of ideas and dreams of beautiful herb spirals and gardens.
Alas, homeless as I am right now, I can’t do much about my lovely dreams this year, except for hoping that I’ll find a place to live soon, with a garden or at least some space to plant my herbs. Well, that, or start planting something here and there out in the wild.Read More
I think this video pretty much sums it up.
I especially like the line about “You’re gross and weird and no one understands you!”. Makes me giggle every time.
But seriously, though.
It’s been 6 years or so since I got my Mooncup, and I’m never going back to tampons or disposable pads again.Read More
I was having a conversation about a study topic the other day, which always ends up kinda contradictory and funny when you think about the deconstruction theory and post-structuralism which always lies there as a solid foundation for the study program.
We were discussing something, and the discussion stopped dead at “But… but… it’s TRADE!“.
But. So much for post-structuralism, huh?
“But as soon as money enter the picture, it gets so ugly and dirty!”Read More
This is something that I’ve pondered and played with in my head these lasts months, when in hibernation. Everywhere around me, in blog posts, in forums, in podcasts and in books… the call is going out to women everywhere. Claim your worth. Take on the world and change it. Take center stage!!
And that’s fine.
If you want to be there.Read More
