THE UNIQUELY ME TAG

Helllooo again!

Three days in a row, I’m really on a roll!

Today’s post (and probably tomorrow’s, too) is a tag. Tags are easily one of my favourite things to write on my blog, so thank you so much to the amazing All The Jazz for nominating me for The Uniquely Me Tag. For those of you that don’t already know, this tag was created by the fantabulous Elm, to spread a little self love! It’s such a great idea and I’m super excited to get into the tag!

First of all, the rules:

1. Thank the person that nominated you for this tag and link to their blog (spread the love, basically).
2. Write as many things that are unique to you as possible: these can be things that you do, say, like or have that make you different to other people or let you stand out. It can be what defines you as a person, a little thing about you that is just simply you or something little known that you think makes you up as a person.
3. Nominate up to 10 bloggers or as many as you like; there isn’t a limit.
4. You can take this tag as seriously or non-seriously as you like; you can laugh whilst doing it or feel contemplative: this is about you, after all.
5. After you’ve written this and if you ever feel like there’s nothing to you but what other people have already said and done, look back to your post and remember that it isn’t true.

Okay, so some unique things about me:

  • My eyes are blue on the outside, and green around my pupils (although it makes it really awkward to decide what colour they actually are)
  • I have a strange love of bagels (especially with cream cheese) ❤
  • When something big happens or I hit a personal milestone, I’ll draw a little circle on the corner of my page in school, so I can look back at my books and see what I was up to
  • I like to learn the real choreography to songs so I can dance along while they’re playing
  • I rarely crush on more than one person at a time (which other people seem to?) so everything is all on one person. It can be stressful, but it’s so fun
  • I have a folder in my gallery of positive quotes to look at when I’m feeling down
  • I still sleep with a big stuffed bear in my bed (his name is Cuddles, and I’ve had him for about 11 years)
  • My dad is American (from Michigan) and my mum is British, so I’m half of both, but living in the UK
  • I have a crazy number of hoodies (mainly Superdry) in an array of colours
  • The Sims games and expansions on my shelf are all in order of release date, and my box sets for TV shows are in season order
  • I’m an avid fan of Fifth Harmony
  • At my age of 15, I’ve never once had a sleepover or gone on a school trip where I stay the night…
  • I’m obsessed with checking my horoscope
  • I love one-off Geography things on TV, like when Leonardo DiCaprio did Before the Flood! ❤

Regina @ Diversion3000

Jenny @ Jenny in Neverland

Jess @ Kisses From Jess

Kiya @ Flawed Silence

Sherina @ Sherina Speaks

And that’s all for this post! Thank you so much to Jazz for nominating me, and to Elm for creating such a beautiful tag!

My Body is My Business | Feminism #3

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Prepare for rants, because a tsunami of them is coming.

 You may have seen on my twitter a few days ago, I tweeted saying:

What guy has the audacity to call a girl flat-chested?

To go with it, I added a gif of a sassy woman, captioned “O RLY BISH?”.

And that brings onto what I wanted to talk about today. I won’t lie, I don’t have the bustiest chest out there, but flat-chested isn’t how any woman should ever be labelled in an offensive manner.

To put some context into it: this guy straight up doesn’t like me. I’m not entirely sure what it is, but he doesn’t. I mean, he’s known to be not the nicest of guys, tries to be friends with some of Tyler’s guy friends, although he’s pretty nasty to them when he wants to be, too.

He’s one of them ‘I’m right; you’re wrong and there’s no changing that no-matter what you say’ sort of stubborn people. Totally annoying, tries to befriend teachers because no students really like him. You get the idea.

So, I was casually handing out books in a biology lesson, when I was talking to Hayley, who just so happens to be sat on the same table as him in that lesson. I was asking where a certain person sat, and he said something, followed by “you flat-chested prick.”

At the time, I was too shocked to respond with any sort of sass attack, but the scenarios in my head following then were definitely the sassiest things I’ve ever said in my head. In reality, I ended up saying that he “should not have said that” which barely compares to the rants in my mind.

No woman should ever be insulted because of something so personal as their body shape. Even without that, the media feed our insecurities enough, with perfect models with clear skin and whatever else it is they throw on there.

Today, he was back at it again. Although this time, it was in Physics. Unfortunately, I sit right next to him. At least I have Theo on the other side! But anyway, we were learning about magnetism and whatnot, and he said “Oh poles. You should know a lot about them, since it’ll be your future career. Oh wait, nobody would pay to see you.”

Pretty sure you’ve got by now that he’s like a 15-year-old Donald Trump. This time, I gave him the sarcastic “yeah, sure I will” and then the silent treatment for the rest of the lesson.

I wanted to make this post to say that whatever anyone says about your body, objectifies or insults you – you’re beautiful as you are. You don’t need anyone to bring that down, but if they do, well, they’re just jealous of every person you’ve ever had a crush on! ❤

BYE! 😀
