8/3/13 – Girl Power

As a woman who generally feels quite in the know about things, I was totally overwhelmed by the amount of publicity being given to International Woman’s Day today! From facebook posts, to special TV mentions, and this carnation that they gave me at the supermarket, I couldn’t believe how much attention it was receiving! Not that I have any problem with bringing issues that affect women to the centre-stage, of course.

My first day back at school was totally stress free. I gave my presentation about British literary characters, sat in on an adorable all girl play rehearsal, and watched as my entire class revised for their economy exam rather than do any English work, their teacher looking on, totally aware yet totally uninterested in doing anything about it. Ah Friday afternoons.
