I wasn't sure whether to post this or not, but figured why not.

As for the photo, people say it's a nice photo but I don't see it. Don't worry, that's just me being stupid, I know.

Sorry for another rant

 I've had migraines the last few days. It's been quite hot here and it gets really hot at night, so I'm not sleeping all that well.

I Need to Vent

A couple of weeks ago, we had a new flatmate move in. Maybe it's me and maybe I just like things my own way, but a few things are annoying me.

Posting for a friend

One of my dearest friends is having a really tough time right now. Her birthday is tomorrow (my time), but she's in the States, so technically her birthday's not for a couple of days.

Year in Review

What can I really say about this year, other than it mostly sucked.

Never Again, Please!

 So, I don't know if this has reached around the world, but as I write, women are gathering in city centres around NZ (and some men too) to hold a candlelight vigil for a young woman who was murdered just a few short weeks after she arrived in New Zealand.

Grace Millane was 22 years old. She came to NZ from the UK and disappeared. Her body was found a few days ago and a man has been charged with her murder. 

She's not the only one. The current affairs show Seven Sharp stated 15 women have died as a result of violence in NZ this year. This is too much. It needs to stop.

If you can, please support organisations that raise awareness or campaign to stop violence against women.

But also, can I ask for some common sense. There has been some backlash against some men, as if they are all tarred with the same brush. With the #MeToo campaign and a few other things going on, it isn't hard to imagine women being gun-shy when it comes to relationships with men. There are some good ones out there, and they're just as hurt and confused by all this as women are. 

Rest in peace, Grace. And to her family, we in NZ are so, so sorry this has happened. 

Say 'No' to violence against women.
