Day 1- Does your submission – either what you practice or what you strive for – have a label? Do you view your submission as Taken in Hand, domestic discipline, top/bottom, dominant/submissive, master/slave, owner/pet, or some other description or combination? If you do not use a label, why?
I D/s, occasionally Master/slave and rarely owner/pet. I use these labels because they are the easiest way to get a fairly decent grasp on what my relationship is like but really it is a fluid relationship that changes from session to session according to how we both feel for the day. What remains constant is that we are D/s and that he is my Master. (Not to be confused with the Doctor Who Master)
Searching the “sub” tag on tumblr and getting half kink and half pictures of sandwiches.
I’m convinced I was sleepwalking half of today, I don’t remember a thing :|
I’m having a pantsless Dent Arthur Dent kind of evening.
This is seriously the third day in my pajamas. Oops.
I wear pink PJs with pictures of duckies in pink PJs. Pajamaception.
For the love of geez make the homework stop. My jammie bottoms are pink with santa heads and full santas on them. They are comfy.
I feel like we in general are replacing the notion of we with the notion of I. The best example that most Americans can relate to is apple brand products. They went from being macintoshes to being apples to being ieverything. i. As in me, mine, my personal thing. We are quickly developing a singles based society. Women think I can do this on my own, I don’t need a man. Men think I am fine on my own, the women don’t even want to settle anymore so I can fuck them and move on when it gets rough.
Even those that are in a committed relationship seem to retain the I line of thinking. A good number of couples don’t even get married anymore (yet we still are preventing homosexual couples from getting married when we straights outright abandon the notion of becoming a we) There’s a growing trend of his and hers bank accounts and his and hers stuff. Yeah they might get married now but it is still all about the I. This is my money,as long as I pay my half of the house payment I should get to spend my money however I want.
Another rather odd I trend that is popping up all over is not taking the same last name when getting married. Women say its degrading to have to take his name. Most men never even consider giving up theirs. Some people decide to hyphenate because they just can’t let go of the I but are trying. A lot don’t even bother with trying. This is my name, I was born with it, it is mine and I’m not changing it for you or societies male driven notions.
I just want to know what happened to the we. What happened to commitment and forever and compromise and working together? Is the notion we of simply outdated?
This week i’ve had so many things just dumped on me. Bam. BAM. BAMBAMBAM. Currently I am supposed to be writing and essay for an interview for student teaching for fall. I literally got 2 days warning on this. 2 days to write a 1 page essay, no big deal at all. 2 days to review all of my education materials and be prepared for an interview? Not enough time. What would the harm have been in warning me a little bit sooner?
