“Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter”
– Christina Aguilera, Fighter
I’m really enjoying the whole song lyrics at the start of my posts; anyone else? I realise this may sound cringy but Fighter resonated with me when I first heard it – as did Beautiful – but I couldn’t place why until I realised I was gay some time later. If you have no idea as to why I mentioned that, keep reading and hopefully it will make sense. *Crosses fingers*
So anyone that was in London for Pride this year and saw me among the thousands may remember that I wore this very ensemble. No? Didn’t think I’d catch your attention over the fabulous drag queens and parade partakers that strutted their way through the streets of London…
These chinos have literally become a staple in my wardrobe this Summer as have the boots. They were frequent parts of my looks during my time at my temp job back in June/July and always garnered a positive comment from co-workers nearly every time I wore them (never hurts 😛 ).
In other news, my accommodation for university is sorted and I now move out in around T-4 weeks! That also means I must now sort what is coming with me and what is staying at home – decisions, decisions…
Going back to the whole LGBT+ talk, I came across this app a few weeks back that is perfect for anyone who is lesbian, gay, bi, trans, etc and wants to connect to other members of the community! It’s called Moovz and I honestly can’t believe it’s not as known as it should be; if I had this a few years back it would have made life so much easier for meeting people who know exactly what you’re going through/how you’re feeling!
I’m not being sponsored by them to give them a shoutout, but I figured that if even one person who reads Oh So Jack is coming to terms with their sexuality/gender identity and could benefit from having people who’ve been in their situation to talk to, it could really help. If you’re interested to find out more about the app, head over to their YouTube channel to see how the app works or watch the video below to get a taster!
For now though my lovelies, that’s all from me! If you have any questions or thoughts you want to share, don’t just stand there, let’s get to it! Sorry… Couldn’t resist… So yeah, please don’t hesitate about leaving a comment below or get in touch via e-mail/social media!
