Grampy

There was not enough time.
Where are the tears?
I should be there by your side.
Ah, there they are.
Why didn’t I call earlier?
They are burning my face.
I should have asked to Skype him.
They stopped suddenly.
Granny.
I feel numb.
I need to call her.
What’s wrong with my body?
Grampy, I miss you.
Are those limbs mine?
I want to hold you one last time.
I’m sorry.

“Chivalry is Dead”

Yes, it is. As it should be.

(Unless you are reenacting medieval culture)

Let’s backtrack a little. Women’s outcry about the death of chivalry, has been both prominent on social media as well as in public spaces and it’s an issue I felt I needed to address. Here, let me give you an example:

Why do I need to succeed?

This question suddenly popped into my mind while I received some heavy blows from reality. I have just begun my first semester at the University of Sydney and although I already had 2 and half years of uni experience from overseas, things weren’t going so well for me. I had issues with the University’s administration, who lost my transcript and blamed it on me (I sent it to their address upon their request). Therefore, they couldn’t transfer my credits from my previous uni. Then I was “randomly selected” to provide documentation to prove I am a legitimate student. They requested original documents (digital copies were denied) or else they would suppress my semester (my marks won’t show on the transcript). Specifically they requested a  document, which  they have lost. I had to spend 55$ in order to get a new transcript to come ASAP.

It was when the water had reached the front door that Nana finally admitted there might be a problem.

Well then, let’s do it! Another touchy subject. Read more…

My Thoughts on Feminism

Feminism.

Lately, this seems to be quite a touchy subject. From what I’ve observed, Western society is divided at least in three basic groups on this matter: pro-feminism, anti-feminism, and I-don’t-really-care-about-feminism. Of course, it gets more complicated than that. There are so many different interpretations of what feminist theory is in the first place.

In general, feminism strives for gender equality in every sphere and institution of our social world, from domestic to public, from private to government, and so on. There is, however, issues with how some feminists in our society present their ideas and opinions, which a lot of times create misunderstandings. Read more…

Finally.

Well, I finally started this wretched blog. Took me long enough.

So, hello anyone who was bored enough to read this first post.

First of all I’d like to provide a popular definition of a word used rather often on the internet, usually in unpleasant situations. According to Google, ‘noob’ is “a person, who is inexperienced in a particular sphere or activity […]”

That is me. I’m a noob. Not only at blogging, but also at what I will use this blog for, which is writing stories.

I want to use this blog to start an anthropology inspired fantasy story, that I hope one day I will be able to compile into a book, once I am competent enough to do it.

Why, would you ask?

I love anthropology (which I am currently studying as an undergraduate) and I love fantasy. I want to combine both to present a world that might be at first glance so different from ours, but that becomes so familiar with its cultural and social problems, so similar to our own. All from a perspective of a little girl thinking a bit differently than people around her and craving for an adventure.

I hope to make it fun for all people, young-and-innocent, not-so-young-anymore, midlife-crisis-people, grumpy-and-happy-old-people and so on.

We will see how it goes. Either up towards the sky or down the drain to the sewers.
