      Despite my best efforts, it’s been a ridiculously long time since I last blogged, due to my final year at uni and other general life stresses. So much has happened since then, not least this:

That’s right - I graduated! I am now the proud owner of a BA in English. It was undoubtedly the toughest three years of my life, but (somehow) simultaneously the best.

      Another important thing that’s happened is that I’ve really become passionate about feminism. I’ve always believed that women and men were equal, but I used to shun the title ‘feminist’, but now I see why it’s needed more than ever. Feminism is infectious, and I mean that in the most positive way. Learning about feminist theory has made me realise that I’m not alone in not accepting the world as it is, which is one of the reasons why I started this blog (I know I’ve promised this before, but the explanation is coming really soon). I now feel brave enough to blog about it, and I’m hoping that I can help annihilate the sexism which makes life unfair for both men AND women.

      To completely change the tone in favour of banality, please forgive the creased dungarees – I think I’m allergic to being tidy!
