As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a God. I don’t think there is a God, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a God. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different God, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are.

Hobart Day 2
Day 2 Hobart was spent exploring around hobart town and an impromptu plan to head to Barilla Bay’s Oyster Farm (Oh I just love last min adventure like this). Not forgetting that amazing airport shuttle driver, who cared to go beyond his duty and drove us to the oyster farm. Kind people like him just made our trip a whole lot better<3
So we ordered these babies…. And I can’t believe we actually took >20mins taking pictures before settling down to gobbling them up hehe. Our #YOLO moment making our way back via highroad to the airport for the shuttle to pick us up. The hotel staff told us it’s just a 5minutes walk to the airport and it turned out to be ahem >30MINUTES omg so ridiculous!

After that missed love, I finally had time to concentrate on this one. We’ve got all the time, but we don’t know how to make use of it.
We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

Back from Aussie for awhile now, and my room is still in a pile of mess…. I can’t seem to get started on packing at all and I blame it on the weather:/ Makes packing 10 times more difficult if you’re going to sweat like a dog.
So I’ve been screening through my collection of photos of the trip and I must say that I’m extremely disappointed at how they turned out. It’s a pity I couldn’t experiment this new camera enough before the trip, resulting in massive amount of photos going straight to the bin:( Videos too, turned out to be a huge disappointment. I should have brought along my trusty canon lightweight camera for video taking. Sigh pie better luck next time.
Can’t wait to share my Aussie adventure soon. I left my heart in Australia and I’ll be back again<3
There are too many of us accepting men who say: ‘I partially love you.’
