Feminist and Feminism: What You Need To Know

Agreed!!! Stay tuned for my opinion on the dreaded -F word!

Anxiety Killed the Cat

In the past few days I have had time to think about what it means to be a feminist and why spreading awareness on the issue is so important to me. Every time I hear someone (even women) say “I’m not a feminist because…” insert whatever really uninformed reason here, usually it’s “because I don’t hate men!” Or “Because I like shaving!” or “Because men and women are supposed to be equals!” The last one if you didn’t already know is the definition of feminism. So what seems to be the problem that people have with the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes? Why are people so frightened by a word that literally means equality of all people regardless of sex? I know what you’re thinking, maybe they don’t understand or maybe they are close minded on the issue because they think that feminism is some weird secret…

25 Struggles Only ENFPs Will Understand

ENFP!

Thought Catalog

ENFPs are passion-driven ‘ideas’ people. They gain energy from interacting with the world around them, and become quickly excited over new possibilities. Though ENFPs loves being around people, they crave alone time much more than the average extrovert. ENFPs search for a deeper meaning in just about everything, and use their much-coveted alone time to decide how their experiences fit in with their system of core values. To be frank, it’s an exhausting personality to have. Here are a few struggles most ENFPs face.

1. Getting your energy from social interaction, but disliking superficial conversations. Yes, I want to go to a party tonight. But a party full of contemplative people who want to alternate between taking shots and discussing the meaning of life.

2. Being very socially conscience but also fiercely individualistic. This means always wanting to fit in with a group, but never wanting to compromise your personality…

Going back to zero is not that bad

Cydney Conquers Life

I am very thrilled, oh no not just thrilled but ecstatic to go back to reviewing for the boards. I remembered crying for days after failing my first take. I became very jealous of people congratulating each other that it even made me deactivate my Facebook account. My silly bitter self. (Deleting fb app on my device actually saved me a lot of memory and drama from people whom I don’t really know personally. But then I installed it back so I could update my relatives by uploading tons of Russell’s photos) I remember how I pressured myself to pass the board exams because I believe that this exam could change my life. I imagined that after passing the boards, I would have a decent job and I would be able to help robin with the expenses. We would have enough savings to buy…

Have you thought today?

Who knows how often I’ll blog? Some days I have a million things going through my head at once. But I do have a challenge for my readers! Take at least 7 minutes out of your day to think! No one around, no phone, no TV, *possible music* and think! Just bask in all the thoughts you have. I’m not talking about any heavy meditating or anything, just thinking. Don’t control your thoughts. Just let them come. Who knows? You could come up with something great? A poem? A new idea? A paper idea? a career move? It’s just your time, and great thing about it you can do it anywhere, now I wouldn’t advise you to do it in class but say you’re riding the bus, put in your headphones (cover your purse) and go into your own mental paradise.

I tend to do this alot, more often than not. I have a really interested mind I can tell you guys that. I think my thoughts would throw the grumpiest old man into a fit of giggles. Sometimes I imagine a gang full of butterflies attacking the person sitting slumped in the corner and wrapping themselves around her in a hug making her bust into a smile, but it’d probably be my luck she’d be terrified of butterflies and then my optimism wouldn’t be of benefit… but it’d still be kind of funny.

Well I leave you with this today… Have you thought today?!

A Mash-Up of Hello’s!

Hello there!

My name is Kwanesia (Qu-Knee-See-Ah), but I’m affectionately called Nikki or Nesi by those closest to me. You probably scrolled past my blog in lieu of something else, but I hope *crosses fingers* I will not disappoint you. Of course every blog’s first post is an introduction of the blogger correct? Well I’m going to try and knock that out of the way and get to the many purposes behind this blog here.

So besides my name I haven’t given you much to go on huh? I’m currently a 21 year old senior at Valdosta State University. I’m getting my Bachelors in Speech Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations. I graduate May 9, 2015 I honestly love everything about my major and I grow to love it more every single day. I’m a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated and have been since April 5, 2013.

Personality wise, I’m an optimist. The definition of one. I see the best in everyone, and I think that’s a great thing! I know that everyone has way more good in them than bad, some just have a harder time tapping into it than others. I also pride myself on being a feminist, and pro-equal rights. Men before you go clicking pages on me, feminism does not mean man hating, it means having the exact same rights. I’ll surely touch on the topic more in future blog posts!

I’m a 6’2 plus size woman, which brings me to the title of Through Amazon Living Lens, or TALL. Now I pride myself on being confident with my size and not worrying about what anyone says about me. Anyone who sees me sees a smile on my face at least 98% of the time! I’m a lover of inspirational quotes and poetry, some of which I’m also sure I’ll be sharing from time to time!

Now the purpose behind this blog. WHEW! Let’s see… I am an opinionated woman. That might even be an understatement. I am starting this blog to state my opinions on things going on in the world from entertainment, to education, to fashion, to sports. A good bit of what I will base that on however is the image that it portrays. I am a strong believer in the fact that the media plays a huge role in the way that people think especially in the minds of generation Y. When I refer to the media that means TV, radio, books, and even social media.

It may be controversial to some, but I hope that you’ll comment and that the discussions can begin!! I love hearing opinions from others especially all over the world.

Thank you again for looking at things Through Amazon Living Lens…. and joining me as I build my brand…. one smile at a time!
