I mean really, my family is usually very right wing (economically) and yet they all seemed to support Scottish independence and it made me very happy.
So my dad and I usually disagree on politics but I just got him on the phone and he kept talking about how great an independent Scotland could have been, and what a shame it is that we stayed in the UK. It made me quite happy, especially after seeing the way the whole thing was depicted by French media. He kept repeating “You could have been like Norway!”
Potato quality, but I kept wondering what it was about this outfit that gave me warm fuzzy 90s/early 00s feelings…
And then I realised, of course! Same colours as Daria’s outfit!
I’m feeling nostalgic now.
Next time, and I know there will be a next time because things are becoming nightmarish already, yes campaigners, try to reach out to us EU immigrants who made Scotland our home! There’s a lot of us and frankly the No campaign was slightly terrifying for us. However throughout much of the campaign I had a LOT of difficulty finding out more information about my voting rights, how this would affect me, etc. from the (otherwise super lovely and informative) yes campaigners. With all the emphasis by the No campaign on an independent Scotland being “foreign” and therefore bad and all that stuff about the UK pulling out of the EU, the threat of UKIP gaining more power, the whole thing felt terrifying at times to me. And I’m still a bit scared, I’ll admit. I know I’m not the only immigrant who’s felt bullied by the UK before, when Scotland seemed so much more welcoming (I mean my brother back home even started saying I was Scottish by adoption). So guys next time reach out to us more! We’re out there and we’re with you!
I like to think that I generally eat ok but sometimes I just grab several handfuls of coco pops and eat them like I’m an anteater.
There, now you all know about my shameful coco pops addiction.
Trying to show some support yay
Good luck everyone who’s voting today!
Unfortunately I did not register to vote because last time I did my address ended up online and my stalker came to Scotland to try finding me, and well personal safety just seemed way too important. It’s a super depressing day for me, because this stuff is really important to me and I cannot participate because some insane dude decided to ruin my life over 10 years ago.
So if you can vote… Vote, because it’s pretty damn important and a really fucking awesome thing that I desperately wish I could do.
Pfft screw being social, people are too complicated anyway, I’m gonna hang out with deer from now on.
I’m not sure how I’m supposed to socialise in Glasgow now that I don’t drink.
It sure would be nice to meet new people.
this is something that’s really important for people to understand, and that most people don’t
oh yea this
'You look bored what's wrong?' Nothing I'm just comfortable with being quiet leave me alone
This applies to people we are close to as well!
I actually had to stop going out with some people because they’d tell me the ways I enjoyed myself were boring.
