    This Is What Happens When You Make Me Angry.

    So I hate it when girls are underestimated, just because we're girls. Guys in my school think they're superior, just 'cause they're farmer boys with muscles and tans. I do just as much work as them, and I'm still underestimated and treated like a baby. A lot of girls in my school...

    I Am Divine

    I grew up in a very religious home with an abusive father in the Midwest. Growing up I learned to submit to men. I learned they're the ones in charge. I learned it at home, in church, in society at large. I learned it and I hated it. I'm now 20. I moved out when I was 18. It...

    Perspective - Who Am I Really?

    Many women today feel a sadness we cannot name.  Though we accomplish much of what we set out to do,  we sense that something is missing in our lives and - fruitlessly -  search "out there" for the answers.  What's often wrong is that we're...

    Sometimes The Barn Needs Painting!

    Make-up is a wonderful tool to enhance what is yours naturally, or what has been gifted over the years!!! It even conceals, minimises or improves on the bits we wouldn't have chosen! Use it, but be careful not to abuse it.
