What bothers me in the news these days; everywhere you look people are telling you as a women who you should be. You need to be a feminist. You have to be single, getting married will only harm your dreams. You should strive to be a CEO or scientist: housewife, teacher, etc.; are clichés and holding women back. You shouldn’t care about your appearance, that’s shallow and vain. On and on they go. But here is what I think:
Feminist or Anti-Feminist. Athlete or Fashionista. Housewife or CEO. Nerd or Cheerleader. A Good Girl or a Bad Girl. Damsel or Superhero. Overachiever or Underachiever. Mother Hen or Baby. Wise Crone or Foolish Youth. Spoiled or Humbled. Clingy or Independent. Single or Married.
Don’t let the world label you, real power and strength comes from being yourself.
Go be strong in believing what you believe and being your true self.
As it is the 5th of November, it is time to honor it and V. V is amazing. First of all he’s played by Hugo Weaving.
I know, what an amazing actor!!! He has some serious fighter skills!
This was my first date with my ex and all I could do was swoon over him. V, that is not my ex.
Besides being an epic fighter, he’s a man with a message and something to fight for.
Now do I agree with everything he does? No. He never should have cut Evey’s hair. A girl’s hair is more than hair, it is a part of their identity, a mark of their femininity. What he did was just wrong there.
See Hook agrees with me.
But you can’t help but be swayed by him. He is so eloquent!
In fact, I became so enthralled that I actually wrote a song about the film from V to Evey. I composed it as I was biking to school and was unable to write it down. Sadly, by the time I got to class I couldn’t remember much. This is about all I can recall:
“I cut off all your hair,
But I swear to you I care
Because I’ve got a vendetta to win your heart
(Win your heart) (Win your heart)”
Silly huh? But what’s a fangirl to do?
So today I have a proposition for you all. Now none of you under obligation:
So last year my friend Benita, who is also a huge V fan, and I were discussing the film. She suggested that we should tag walls with Vs on November 5th to honor him. I thought that was a great idea, but didn’t want to get in trouble for vandalism. I thought we should do it in chalk, as it washes off, but that’s when I came up with a better idea!
But I thought what could make this 5th of November really special would be if we would post this picture on our facebook walls.
And then on 5 of our friends’ walls asking them to do the same. If we all work together we can cover the world!!! Think about it!
