    Planning for an essay I have on a book I have been studying for school. 'The Thing Around Your Neck' is a collection of short stories in which the main character in every story is a woman, and the common themes are oppression and identity. Anyway the thing that bothers me is that although many of the character's struggles are related to their sexuality, thoughts of sex and bad experiences in bed with people they do not love. These examples are extremely relevant to the themes that I am meant to write about however whenever I bring them up in class the teacher tells me that they are inappropriate things to talk about. It is not that they are unrelated to the themes, but she doesn't want to talk about it because its about 'sex'.

    It just frustrates me that a teacher can be so immature so as to cringe when topics like that are brought up, and that she does not want it written about in my essay. Why then, are we studying a book with an overriding theme of sexual oppression if it makes you 'uncomfortable'.

    People who come into a conversation part way through and have no clue what's going on but still insist on trying to get involved in the conversation. I don't mean when people walk up half way through either, people who were sat there the whole time but chose not to listen to the first part of the conversation. I have two friends who do this all the time, drives me crazy
    Got: Left Ear: Lobe (19mm/5mm/1.6mm), 4xhelix, 5mm conch

    Yesterday someone asked if I could do a 12-9 today instead of 3-9 as they had been offered a ticket to the football. I said yes, then at 10pm she said don't worry I got the timing wrong. She'd need to leave earlier than 12. Then this morning I've woken up to 6 missed calls, 3 messages and a fb from her asking if we can change back to 12-9 as she's found a bus leaving at 1. Sorry no, you can't mess me about like that.
    Glad I put my phone on silent before I went to bed last night.

    This is the 3rd day in a row that MIL has put just one thing in the washing machine. She's told us loads of times not to do that (and I don't think we ever have anyway) but she's always doing it. It's going to break soon, I just know it, the banging is getting louder every time.
