During my interview for the job I currently have, they asked if I was okay with working alone, to which I replied “totally”. But the fact is, I am 100% not okay with working alone and serving clients it is not safe and I am so vulnerable. I even knew I wouldn’t like it when they asked during the interview, but when you’re desperate to get your first job after university you basically have to say whatever it takes to get hired. If this shitty not-for-profit actually recognized we live in a rape culture and patriarchy they wouldn’t put women in the situation of serving clients alone.

Hey y’all! Since it’s summer now and most people’s schedules aren’t quite so crazy, I’ve decided to try to start up the Feminist Knitting club again! If you’re in (or near) Calgary and want to join, please fill out this lil poll and let me know what dates/times work for you! Please also send me a message or reply to this post letting me know who you are so I can let you know when the meeting will be, and if none if these times work for you but you’d like to be notified of future meetings, let me know that too!
As before, everyone is welcome! Whether you’ve been knitting for years or have never picked up a pair of needles in your life, I’d love to have you! I’d be more than happy to teach you how to knit, and I’m always up for giving advice on choosing projects, needles, or yarn!

I AM SO HAPPY AND MAYBE IN LOVE WHAT THE HECK
Dayo + Natasha’s Engagement Shoot - I had the biggest honor of capturing this lively and energetic couple yesterday (6/20/14). There was just pure excitement in the air, and they did a great job at channeling it into affection. They complete each other perfectly and that’s what love is all about, finding someone who can complete and understand you no matter what your flaws are. I wish them all the best!
i can’t wait to do this
