For the past few years as I have embraced my feminist beliefs I have marked International Women’s Day in my diary to ensure I always remember to appreciate those that inspire me. As I received my first text of the … Continue reading
So here’s another reason why America and government sucks and manipulates us; that’s what you’re probably thinking. And yeah, I may appear to have a vendetta against them. But I also think it’s vitally important for anyone that is aware … Continue reading
*SPOILER ALERT BIG TIME* – But seriously if you haven’t finished it already, you need to go do that right now. Just stop. Put it all away, call in sick. Go finish it. Like everyone else I ‘binged’ watched … Continue reading
So, everyone’s finally getting up-roared by the decision to bomb Syria? So, does this mean people will finally remove the wool that usually covers their eyes every day by the government? I can harp on for a long time about … Continue reading
Today I really wanted to go the panel at The British Library to celebrate 150 years of Alice Adventures in Wonderland. Despite the fact in going to go the exhibition tomorrow, I had in my head that I needed to … Continue reading
Waking up to the news about Paris. It’s inconceivable. But I see so much unity over just wanting to help them. Forget the ignorance of people the media has created, and those that know nothing. But what does matter and … Continue reading
I’ve always been a lover of animals, and cared way more for them than most people. Because to me, I know how little they can defend themselves against disgusting humans who use and abuse them for their own selfish desires. … Continue reading
I don’t know about anyone else, but I am so excited for the Suffragette movie. For many reasons; 1. I’m a feminist 2. So many great actresses to love 3. Most of those women are active feminists 4. (And most … Continue reading
It is articles like this one that baffle me that we still have a government. Or, at least, that we have a government like ours. How is something so spectacularly individual, and personal, down to a decision made to MP’s?
People can take their life without these drugs. But through a more painful, and struggling manner. Now this is an extremely delicate subject because no one wants to appear pro-suicide. No one wants the responsibility of troubled people taking their own life, ‘easily’.
However I want to clearly state this is not my argument. This situation is merely an example of my point, that the government has too much power.
In many ways I will explore this in future posts to come, for there is a lot to be said (and a lot has already been said). If we look logically at this one example; those individuals have fought about this ‘the right way’. By this I mean, despite clearly being angered by the government, they have protested, made proposals, waited for 20 years…and have been rejected once more.
Not to mention, their proposal clearly states that each and EVERY ONE case would still have to be approved by the High Court, even if assisted dying was legalised. Therefore, no one would be able to go ahead with what they are asking for, even when it’s made legal. We could argue this also, but at least this would allow patients to not abuse the system. It would eradicate any chance of those the court, or anyone else, deems ‘able to save’.
I’m still not favouring a side here. I have my opinions, but I will also be open and honest to the fact that I myself have not researched this thoroughly. I have read some articles, but I have not followed their fight. However, I have been highly conscious to the fact that we live in a manipulated system.
This is another case, to add to the very long list, that the government is not listening. Meaning that the two problems we face are, one; They are not caring, or making any leeway to even adjusting their close minds.
And, Two; We still live in a society where we feel powerless.
I mean, does that not enrage you? This case is just like many others. In the respect that this is about people’s lives. That it would be illegal for someone suffering a horrendous illness, with no outcome but a painful death, to rest their life easily.
By dismissing this pledge, they are basically stating they stand by patients remaining in pain, and dying in an undignified way.
It is not someone elses choice how you live your life. It is not down to a room full of power, money-fed MP’s how you live you life. And it is certainly not down to them to choose the pain you must suffer.
This case is important because it is very literal in that those fighting this cause will still have to feel pain, and see those they love in pain. But, if you have not thought about it before, I ask you to please open your eyes to that this happens all the time. They will not legalise cannabis either, despite 200,000 people petitioning. The government shut it down and would not even allow a debate. Is that public speaking? Is that freedom of speech? Even though that move would have created 10,000 more jobs, and saved money on health and policies. Why would they do that?
Because drugs are bad? A drug that could also be monitored, and prescribed only to those that truly are in pain? A drug softer than alcohol.
They prefer to ingrain that drugs are bad, and make money off of it instead. The government earns more, and could put more people away by it staying illegal.
The same reason they would never delegalize alcohol, even though it causes more harm. Because they make mass amounts of revenue off people killing their livers. You can put away a drug addict, but is it illegal to be an alcoholic?
They want to keep their stigmas, and their power. Just like how they want to keep their drugs that can end peoples suffering, because they would lose money if they didn’t.
I’ve heard through the grapevine from a pharmacist how they even have a cure for diabetes. But would they let this known? Of course not. Because it brings millions of money into pharmaceuticals. However, that’s just another issue. If the MPs are that intelligent, who knows?
But the Assisted dying bill, furthermore, highlights how an issue is decided by MP’s. Not by a room full of people who have been following the matter and are fully educated and qualified to make that decision.
Reason number million that a revolution needs to be had. We have the knowledge, we understand the flaws in the system. And it’s completely insane to me that we let it go on. They are a group, we are the collective.
But do not mistake me. Do not fight ignorance with rage. We’ve done angry through our injustice. And we’ve done political, through our dismissals. Let’s take our knowledge, and let’s just bring peace to the people. Do not be silent, just be aware. They can fight anger. They can’t fight peaceful consciousness

That’s all i can really think to say to start this off, because, well i’m not that great with the wording of well, my words.
There’s also a lot of pressure too I think. You want to write a blog you think. But everyone’s doing that these days. Everyone’s got an opinion and everyone wants to be heard.
Some people gain a knack for it. They earn money from it even! Have their face on TV if they really want to get into it.
But i’m not about that. I just really want a place to put my thoughts. I won’t lie to you though, I’d love to be able to write. Because like many other people out there, I feel it. I feel that need to make a difference. Not for the celebrity, or even the connection, but for the better of this place we live.
I’m quite hard on myself, which was also probably noted with the beginning of this post. Because I always feel I cannot write, or I have no means of making a difference.
And I’ve tried it. I’ve tried writing a book, writing songs, generally preaching to the ignorant, and trying to work for charities. But it always seems that it’s all already out there.
But in the same sense, I think I try too hard. I want to get my personality across beacuase I constantly feel misjudged. I want to get the importance of what i’m trying to say out in the right way so no one misses the point. And then comes the being hard on myself again, and it’s all; Why my voice? Would anyone even read it?
But then you kind of have to say, “Fuck you, subconscious”, self-indulge, and just do it.
So here I am, ‘just doing it’.
I mean, I guess I do want to use this blog to practice my writing. Because I have this vision ok; to write a book about what people don’t realise, in everyday life.
Sounds fun right? I know.
But you can only gather so many ramblings and rants about the immoral and unjust that you just kind of seem like a manic depressive.
So, I turn to blogging. I feel when I get those random bursts of emotion and passion about what I (and others) believe, sometimes those writing segments come out pretty darn well.
So, if you’ve beared with me this far, or you’ve landed here for some reason, stay tuned. You may find a piece you like/agree with. You may even really disagree and dislike me, then I can show you the way.
I’m really trying not to over think this post, because it’s not very natural to me. So if you’re socially awkard i think you’ll understand me just fine.
So here’s another few things about me before the pieces begin; my names Sarah, I’m currently 22 and working a 9 hour day job in Marketing. I plan to travel pretty soon (another reason a blog was needed). And just to reinforce my point of all this; i feel too much about a lot of things in the world.
But i’m also pretty weird, and kind, so stick around!
Talk soon my chums!
