How was your week, friends? I spent mine in Bowral, a little town between Canberra and Sydney. There was much hiking and face-stuffing and the like. Also: warming myself by a woodstove and poking around boutiques. Lovely!
Now! Interesting things from the internet!Refugee resettlement is something that I feel really passionately about (I taught ESL to KaRen and Hmong refugees in St. Paul, Minnesota for two years.) Australian channel SBS has created a super interesting reality show in which Australian citizens experience Australian refugee detention centers, long boat voyages and refugee camps. Wow.
Interesting! The stories behind different items on Ebay Angelyne is a Hollywood Icon, best known for her self promoting billboards and driving around town in her pink Corvette. This shirt was actually purchased directly from Angelyne, out of the trunk of said pink Corvette.

I won’t let anyone tell me who I should be, and I certainly won’t let them tell me I should be this or that so that men will like me.

Are dressing the way I do and being a strong, independent, smart and driven woman mutually exclusive? I say that’s bullshit.
Granted, I do get her point. And she has some valid takes on things. Ladies, we should never EVER dumb ourselves down to be more attractive to a man. Don’t ever make yourself seem more stupid, a worse driver, not as good at sports, not as business savvy, etc. just so that the man you’re with or want to be with will accept you.
