the thing about living in australia is there’s always some weird animal making some fucked up noise outside your window
We’ve got that in England too but we call them chavs
Guys it appears I’m fucked.
Basically I have this percussion quartet to write for uni. It has to be 4-6 minutes long and for an instrumentation of our choice (I think). This was the thing I was going to write for my now ex to get him interested in contemporary music. But obviously that plan isn’t going ahead and I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet.
Apparently it’s in for Monday.
See what your followers thinks of you.
BLACK = I would date you.
GREEN = I think you’re cute.
BLUE = You are my tumblr crush.
GREY = I wish you would notice me.
PURPLE = I don’t talk to you but I really love your blog.
TEAL = We have a lot in common.
YELLOW = FUCK ME.
ORANGE = I don’t like your blog.
BROWN = I don’t like you.
PINK = I think you are unattractive.
RED = I hate you with a burning passion.
WHITE = MARRY ME.
HAVE YOU EVER FELT SO DESPERATE ABOUT SOMEONE NOT LIKING YOU BACK, THAT YOU JUST GET THIS TIGHT, SQUEEZING FEELING IN YOUR CHEST AND IT JUST HURTS SO MUCH
That post I just reblogged about the Baltic efforts at Eurovision is interesting but in a weird way I do quite like ‘Attention’.
But my God, who the fuck thought that song may have any chance at all of winning?????
You could change the word ‘Attention’ to ‘Three Minutes To Earth’ or ‘Tick-Tock’ and it would still make sense.
The Baltics in Eurovision this Year
Let's send an act that, although wasn't the favorite to win, is quite good, and for a change is in English, but should still do very well and is unique enough to stand out.
Let's make a rule that everyone who participates in the national selection, whether they compose or perform, must be Latvian. Show the world we do actually have talent and not need Swedish songwriters like Azerbaijan. Show Europe that we could possibly bring an act in Latvian that shows off our folk culture. Then, in a surprise twist of events, choose the worst song of the bunch that is sung by the one non-Latvian that happened to get in.
Noise! Mediocrity! Jumping! Hip hop! Tutus! Shouting! Where are all of our good composers? Oh, wait... we don't have any.
dansevise ha chiesto: 2, 5, 8, 17
2) Favourite year: 2009 or 2012. It’s probably too early to say, seen as it hasn’t all come together yet in terms of the staging but maybe 2014 too? We’ll see.
5) Favourite second-place finish: Iceland 2009, gorgeous song and gorgeous singer!
8) Favourite national final: well when it comes to the nfs then I’m very biased towards certain countries. I’ll always try to catch Israel (when they do it) and Georgia etc. And I do Albania and Ukraine and the others that are early. And ones where I speak the language (which was France this year and Spain and that was basically it). I’m rubbish at keeping up with the nfs tbh.
17) An act that makes me laugh: 'Baila El Chiki Chiki', 'Igranka', 'Euro Neuro', 'The Social Network Song', 'Cheesecake', 'We Are The Winners', 'Lasha Tumbai' (obviously), 'Irlande Douze Points', 'Lipstick', 'Waterline', 'Moustache', 'My Slowianie', 'Time' but not in a good way. For some reason, and I really really do not know why, 'Three Minutes To Earth' makes me giggle too.
sometimes, XS clothing isn’t even small…its like they changed the sizes to make people think they fit a smaller size? I tried on an XS romper and it was really baggy. It didn’t look like an XS either but that’s all they had.
I’m British and size 10 and I have to agree. Ok, I’d say finding size 10 in most stores is quite easy. But my sister is a size 6 and she often has to shop in the kids’ section because she just can’t find size 6s.
And also, all these online clothes brands you get on TV which only do sizes 12-32 or 14-32. But God forbid you get a store only stocking 4-12!
I find almost everything that has a ‘size 10’ written on it will fit (well, width-ways, I’m very short). But when you get S, M and L, like in France or Spain, it’s a nightmare because half the time a S is more like a L. It probably is because, as you say, they want people to think they’re fitting a smaller size, but then that disables smaller people from buying it.
Oh and God forbid you want something that is a ‘one size fits all’ because it will not fit you in a million years unless you shove the entire Willy Wonka factory into your throat.
Bra shopping too is a nightmare. Good luck being anything smaller than 32. Good luck being an A cup, because you’re not going to find shit. Oh, and if your backsize is 32 but your boobs are bigger than Cs, just give up right now because only La Senza and VS can help you. The number of stores that don’t stock my size is ridiculous, but you get all these gargantuan ones easily. You get the plus size section in Debenhams and John Lewis but if you’re smaller than a 32A then it’s non-wired Hello Kitty bras for you.
Going up from a size 8 to a size 10 was a blessing, quite honestly, because it made shopping soooooooo much easier.
AAAAAHHHHH bra shopping oh my god.
Most shops will carry a 32 as their smallest even in the goddamn budding boobs section.
some smaller ranges might carry a 30.
The ONLY place I’ve gotten 28’s were in a papaya range that disappeared and in bravissimo, whose range is quite small and specialist and expensive. And only for DD and above.
If you’re a size 28 D or under, you’re fucked.
I was a 28 DD-E (the smaller your back is, the bigger your cup is so my boobs weren’t BIG but they needed a larger cup size) at my smallest so I was lucky, but still spent £200-odd on just a few fucking bras, it was ridiculous.
I’m a 30 DD (back is technically a 29 now so they’re all a big loose on me) and so I can just about find my size in bravissimo now but in other shops its a nightmare and now that I’m losing weight I have to face the horrors of finding a 28 back size again.
Again, not ‘oppression’ but still a nightmare and shows that bodies of any size/shape/proportion have a fucking nightmare finding clothes that fit. Arguments that skinny people have it easy to find clothes is rubbish. Clothes have to be generic in size and shape and humans are all very varied so we all have trouble in certain places, not just larger people.
My sister has that problem too, but she just lets a 32A envelope her. I’m surprised 32 is the smallest because that’s supposed to be a size 10 and a lot of shops do go to an 8.
I struggled when I was a 32B (I was for a few years then I grew again). Now I’m a 32D-DD now and it’s even worse because loads of cheaper shops literally do not sell those sizes, so I have to do either Debenhams (which I hate) or a specialist lingerie shop which is more expensive. From what I’ve seen, if you’re 32E or bigger you’re fucked. It’s not oppression, and it doesn’t mean anyone who’s A-C is privileged, just it’s apparently an unusual size.
We all have trouble with certain things. I struggle with shoes because I have weird toes but that’s not oppression, it’s just most of the population doesn’t have spear-head toes. Saying it’s oppression just trivialises actual oppression, where people are murdered and stuff, meanwhile we have small boobs or weird feet or something.
Also I’m glad you mention how the lettering on bra sizes works because I have this argument with people all the time. “How can you be a D?” Mine aren’t bulging out because I’m a 32, that’s like a 36B. It’s so annoying.
I walked into Oxford St earlier and tried on some bras in some shops because mine no longer fit (again).
Literally my right boob is a D, and my left boob is a DD, what the fucking hell even is this?!
32DD is actually harder to find than a 32D though. It’s not that unusual srsly.
