Friends, ladies, countrymen! Lend me your ears
That I may recite this, my tale of woe,
Love, laughter, frustration,
Kindness, and joy.
Cocooned in this womb of warmth I lie sleeping, peaceful. Foetus-like in this haven, my hand moves slowly towards my mouth, thumb extended. The gentle, rhythmic bass beats through me and I know I am safe.
Suddenly this warmth is ripped away from me, and I scream and kick out protestingly at the brightness and coldness of this alien world.
"Come on Laus, it's time to get up. We have to get ready"
"Go away I'm sleeping."
That was how my day started this morning and is probably very close to how my life started nearly 21 years ago, as a bit of a premmie via ceasarian section. For the details though, you are going to have to speak to Mom.
I decided to honour that event with this piece.

Literature
i am not worthless
do not treat me like i am the scum on top of cold coffee. do treat me like i dont exist, you with the masks of contempt on your faces to hide your intimidation. i stood with you in your circle of guys, the only girl, yet your eyes never looked my way and your cruel tongues cut gouges out of my bubble of protection.
no longer! you will no longer treat me this disgustingly. you will no longer act this childish in this adult world. i will not stand to be treated as inferior by men who are in truth my equals. you are as good as i am. i am a woman and i do not need to be cut down by insecure men.
I am not Worthless!

Literature
Alien Emotions
I feel like a kid who's been caught with her hand in the cookie jar. Getting into trouble for doing something she shouldn't, something "bad", but feeling confused because it felt so right at the time. It was just too good to resist. Because something that good just couldn't be bad, could it?

its been ages since i last was on DA... A ton of deviations later and I decided instead to update my journal.

lots of news... at varsity bored out of my mind. going to watch a movie just now... otherwise I have sponsorship for kiteboarding, which is going really well, and am getting a new kite soon. hoping to upload pics of me jumping, but i spend more time taking photos of everyone else!

my board designs are going to germany, and I got my new board the other day. all is fantastic!
