    I’ve been continuing to write about my history with relationship abuse [TW on that], this time reflecting on one reason why I didn’t leave.

    Also waxing frustrated about students and toilet paper as well as collecting clips from my favorite Christmas specials.

    Finally, starting to wrap up a month-long yoga challenge and thinking about how difficult it is for me to leave things undone, particularly at Christmas.

    I just finished reading The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. It’s a young adult book that tackles how girls are treated in high school. It was funny and though provoking. I highly recommend it.

    This is absolutely amazing! There are women today you see the inequality and sexism that corporation toy companies are inflicting on children…but the fact that even children now are taking notice? My heart just filled with joy :) You go girl!!!
