I really can’t wait until my exams are over because I feel like for the past two months my life’s been on hold and I’ve not had time to do anything I enjoy, even simple stuff like reading a book or playing my ds or practicing piano
Is ‘iykwim’ ever used as an abbreviation of ‘if you know what I mean’ because if not I think we should

At the moment I’m actually okay with having not had a boyfriend yet, but I’m more worried about when I do eventually have my first relationship (which at this rate will probably be when I’m like 25, if ever) and I’ll have to tell him that he’s the first guy I’ve ever gone out with and idk it’ll just be awkward
kickthepj’s new video is probably one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen
Why is there very little utility to women’s clothing? Why don’t we get pockets which actually open? Why do we have to put up with the ‘false pockets’ that are frequently sewn onto women’s jackets and pants to give visual interest without ruining the ‘line’ of the garment? Why, when pockets are actually present, are they so rarely large, stable, or loose enough to accommodate a phone or a wallet? And why, given this is the case, do women go on to cop so much flack for carrying handbags around with them?
Oh wait. Is this one of those double standards which we feminists are always going on about; one of those innocuous little things which everybody just accepts because it is the norm?
Women carry handbags. It is known.
But why? I have watched my male friends get ready to go out. They slip their wallet into one pocket, their keys into another, their phone into a third pocket, and some of them even still have spare pockets large enough to carry a novel for the journey. Those of my friends who wear women’s clothes, though, face an entirely different situation. If they are wearing the right jeans or jacket, they may have up to two usable pockets (not at all guaranteed). However, in most cases they won’t have any pockets at all. Utility and style rarely meet in women’s fashion, so they grab a bag.
Contrary to all the jokes, most women don’t ‘have’ to leave the house with everything they pack in their day-to-day handbag. Most of the items in a woman’s everyday handbag are in there because, if she’s going to have to carry it anyway, she might as well make it worth her while. Excuse us for making use of the one useful item we find in our wardrobes.
