International Women’s Day

It is Women’s International Day today. What has surprised me in today’s culture is that even though women attend University and pursue careers; there are still women who choose to become stay at home mother’s all their life, even at a young age. Women of the past have fought for our independence, our freedom to vote and to have the same equal rights as men. I am not a feminist and I am not against marriage or against having children. But I think it is pure ignorance if a woman chooses to become a housewife and/or mother without having taken further education or actually worked for a living. These women have so many opportunities available to them that were not possible for women of centuries ago and they are not taking full advantage of them. I believe it is foolish to abandon such rights which women of the past have fought so much for, even to the point of death. I do believe in freedom of speech and freedom of choice, women can do whatever they please. But by the same token, this is my opinion and I will stick by it.

The Ice Queen Diaries hits 1000 views!

My blog has reached 1000 views today! Whether you stumbled here by accident or succumbed to my endless plugging (mostly over Facebook), I want to thank everyone who has viewed my blog and taken the time to read my posts (this blog has only been up and running for a month)! A special thanks goes out to the regular readers and those who have commented on my posts. I like getting feedback from those reading my blog. I also want to let you know that it is International Woman’s Day this Sunday, 8th of March! I will be blogging then to commerate the day. It may coincide nicely with my Samaritans’ training, the next session being tomorrow. Please bear in mind that I will not be posting so frequently. I am in final year, it is nearing the end of term and it is all a bit hectic for me at the moment trying to get all my work done in time. Be patient and I will post as soon as I can!
