1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.
2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.
3. reduce processed food from your diet. 
4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.
5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything. 
6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.
7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small. 
8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.
9. organize your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.
10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.
11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behavior. realize you can learn from your dog
12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through
13. compliment yourself as well as others. you will learn to accept yourself more.
14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything. 
15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.
16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

"Consensual sex" is just sex. To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t say "breathing swimming" and "non breathing swimming", you say swimming and drowning.

Courtenay McKay created a series of posters for the Gender Based Violence Prevention Project (GBVPP) at the University of Alberta to spread awareness about rape culture.

The Gender Based Violence Prevention Project is a new project of the Students’ Union that promotes a campus free of gender based violence. Gender Based Violence exists in both visible and invisible ways on our campus and affects the lives of many University students, staff, faculty, and community members. Through education, awareness, and institutional change, we are striving to create a campus free of gender based violence where everyone can feel safe and supported.”

Well, it’s almost that time of year again… time for lighting the menorah, eating latkes and sufganiot, and spinning around like a dreidel while your mom plays Chanukah songs on the piano until you fall over and maybe throw up.  And you know what that means: a Roaring Softly Chanukah giveaway!
Here’s the dealio:
Chanukah has 8 nights, starting on Thanksgiving (11/27) this year.  For each night, I am going to pick a winner.  That’s 8 winners total!
These are the prizes:
Nights 1-6: Custom tumblr icon drawn by me
Night 7: Drawing of you and the celebrity or character of your choice, emailed to you
Night 8: A surprise pack of a ton of prints (like, a ton) (all with slight imperfections like smudges or printer lines) (but nothing crazy) lovingly mailed to your door!!*
To enter:
Just reblog this post!  (Likes don’t count, sorry.)  And please make sure you’re following me at Roaring Softly on tumblr!  You can reblog as many times as you like.  Turns out reblogging more than once doesn’t make your name show up more than once, so no need to bother (unless you just want to help spread the word!).
Winners will be chosen randomly and notified each night of Chanukah via ask box.  If you don’t respond within 48 hours, I will choose someone else.
Also: 
Stay tuned for an exciting holiday sale in my Etsy shop coming up very soon!  Get ready to stock up on prints for all your pals this holiday season.
*Only U.S. pals will be accepted for this night because international shipping costs are a little bit ridiculous.  Sorry to be a buzz kill.


There are still a few more days until Chanukah!  Enter my contest?


There are still 4 more winners to be selected!  Have you entered yet?
*And don’t forget to make sure you have your ask box open so I can contact you!  If it’s not open, I’ll move on to someone else!
