In the Eighties, when I was in college in 1988. That was almost the end of the military dictatorship. I was a student protester. I was part of a lot of demonstrations against the government and I would have to run away from riot police. In one particular instance, I ran away and opened a random door and ended up in a very classy, high-end hotel. I found myself in this lobby where there was piano music and just two seconds ago they were shooting tear gas at me. There I was listening to Mozart and guests were dressed up in nice clothes drinking coffee as if nothing was going on. I was just in a daze, thinking ‘where am I’? That feeling is definitely a part of the sushi bar scene.

A friend who now lives in Chicago texted me today asking if I was around for a bit, she came home for a few days and thought she would surprise people. It was such a lovely surprise and seeing her really made my day. I love that I don’t have to always see/talk with her but whenever we get together we fall back into our old chatty ways. It is wonderful.

Don’t take ‘no’ as a full stop. Take it as a comma.

TIFF just announced the line up of films showing at the festival and now I’m dreaming of attending. If only college wasn’t going on during the same time as the festival, I would totally buy tickets to attend. I suppose I shall have to wait to attend until next year when I’ve graduated and don’t have college interfering with quality film watching time.

So I am going on holiday to Maine for six days and need to figure out which books to take. Planning on heading to the library (and the libraries charity book shop) tomorrow and would love suggestions for books to check out. Have you read anything recently that just blew you away or was just plain good fun?

If you’re anti-war it doesn’t mean you are ‘pro’ one side or the other in a conflict. However, it does make you ‘pro’ many things…Pro-peace, pro-human, pro-evolution, [it] makes you pro-communication, pro-diplomacy, pro-love, pro-understanding, pro-forgiveness.

Eddie Vedder, quoted saying this before singing Imagine for the first time ever in concert 

I was just blown away with this statement, I am still trying to understand how I feel about all these things, but I do think that Vedder makes a very valid and beautifully put point. 

This is just a very small portion of Kalki Koechlin’s brilliant rant on the Truths of Womanhood, which she performed on International Women’s Day. This is a small part of a really powerful monologue, and you all should definitely watch it. It is beautiful and talks about how the Patriarchy is hampering the progress of women everywhere.
