Weird Racial Stereotypes We Have To Battle on a Day to Day Basis (326/365)

Stereotypes and race have been the theme of this week and I thought I'd expand on a few more of the things I've mentioned as like I've mentioned, I've been inspired by a drive to be as petty as possible. In case you didn't know a post I wrote about workplace racism circulated around the … Continue reading Weird Racial Stereotypes We Have To Battle on a Day to Day Basis (326/365)

What It’s Like To Be Labelled As An Angry Black Girl (325/365)

Spoiler alert = it's not fun. So, let's talk about a tale, a tale of being labelled as an angry black girl, which is basically my whole life. I think it doesn't help that I'm a naturally confrontation person who is willing to stand their ground, alongside being blunt - but these personality traits were … Continue reading What It’s Like To Be Labelled As An Angry Black Girl (325/365)

To Everyone Who Defends Their Racist Friend (324/365)

I think it's safe to say the theme of this week is racism, and it's inspired by pure pettiness - I wish I was a better person, but I'm really not. Now we all have one friend who's about a decade or two behind with everything, the ones who complain about political correctness or are … Continue reading To Everyone Who Defends Their Racist Friend (324/365)

So, My Old Work Place Found My Blog Post About Their Racism.. (323/365)

Honestly, my inital response was laughter, not only because I can trace who spread it, but because their reaction was what I expected - they sympathised with the racist, because 'he can't help his personality', 'he's awkward', and 'he must have just rubbed her the wrong way'. They can't fathom that the post came from … Continue reading So, My Old Work Place Found My Blog Post About Their Racism.. (323/365)

My Transition from being a Tomboy to the Woman I am Today (321/365)

Like many girls who grew up and experienced their teenage years in the naughties, I was a proud tomboy. Part of it was because I rejected anything feminine and looked down on 'girly girls' and another big part of it was because I crave comfort over anything else. So I looked down on dresses and … Continue reading My Transition from being a Tomboy to the Woman I am Today (321/365)

It’s Always Good to Keep an Eye out for Red Flags (310/365)

I've written extensively on red flags, what they are and how to identify them but weirdly enough I haven't written about the importance of collecting them. Not everyone who has a red flag is an abuser, or a horrible person so they don't need to be thrown in the trash but that doesn't mean that … Continue reading It’s Always Good to Keep an Eye out for Red Flags (310/365)

What I Wish I Was Told As a Teenager (307/365)

When you're a teenage girl you're sort of told loads of contradicting things and are somehow supposed to come out of it as a healthy functioning adult. At mosque I was told I need to get married and have children I had many arguments saying this notion wasn't very Islamic as women aren't seen as … Continue reading What I Wish I Was Told As a Teenager (307/365)

F*ck Everyones Expectations (306/365)

Anyone relate to being told that they should grow up to become a doctor or a lawyer and get married and have children and then reaching the age where you're making these decisions and not wanting to do any of them. I'm aware I'm quite lucky that my parents (whether they want to or not) … Continue reading F*ck Everyones Expectations (306/365)

My Experiences with Work Place Racism (305/365)

I don't actually know why I took so long to write this post, but in all honesty it refers a lot to my previous job (and the one before that) so maybe I was trying to be smart about it. As the title suggests this post will be about my personal experiences with work place … Continue reading My Experiences with Work Place Racism (305/365)

Being a Somali In Pro-Black Spaces (302/365)

I'm going to try to not offend anyone but honestly I can't make any promises because this is personal and based on my actual experiences. It's also something I don't feel the most comfortable writing about, but sometimes the truth needs to be spilled and this is something that everyone kind of forgets about. So … Continue reading Being a Somali In Pro-Black Spaces (302/365)
