Like cowboys do in TV Land!

Travel blog: luckygutsy

I'm poly, queer, rabidly pro-Palestinian, punk, a writer, and kind of a sketchy vagabond. I'm usually angry.

Current city: Colombo, Sri Lanka
Current job: hostel management
Last city: Bergen, Norway
Last job: hostel reception in Ramallah, Palestine

This blog: history, politics, art, music, travel, literature, whatever really.

Feel free to ask me questions about cheap/free travel! There is not enough info about it out there, esp. for women.

THIS BLOG WILL NEVER BE NSFW. If yours is, please tag nsfw posts. It may seem silly but please do it anyways.

Just finished the hostel’s account for this week. I am 129 LKR off — that is, less than $1 USD. Hell yeah.

I’ve been looking into some other part time work lately — work that wouldn’t affect my main job in the slightest. Boss got wind of it today. To make a long story short, my work permit is tied to my job and he won’t let me work anywhere else. If I leave this job (which anyways I don’t want to do) I’ll be without a work permit and have to leave Sri Lanka — for which I don’t have the money. I’m like a classy, better-paid indentured farmer. The most irksome part is that I’ve been offered other, arguably better jobs without asking for them, so if I did have a more open work permit I’d basically be able to support myself independently in Colombo.

hostel manager awake and alert enough to balance the accounts

The last movie I watched in the cinema: I don’t remember the last time I saw a movie in theatres. It might have been Les Miserables.

A piece of advice for all my followers: Laugh at yourself

You all have to listen to this song: "Ghosts Of Our Past" by the Biblecode Sundays

Courtenay McKay created a series of posters for the Gender Based Violence Prevention Project (GBVPP) at the University of Alberta to spread awareness about rape culture.

The Gender Based Violence Prevention Project is a new project of the Students’ Union that promotes a campus free of gender based violence. Gender Based Violence exists in both visible and invisible ways on our campus and affects the lives of many University students, staff, faculty, and community members. Through education, awareness, and institutional change, we are striving to create a campus free of gender based violence where everyone can feel safe and supported.”

"Women need to stop complaining about being objectified. Men get objectified JUST as much as women do."

You can pretty much search “sexy -insert any product here- ad” with similar results.
