Although I’d like to think I’m a strong independent woman who takes no bullshit and never hesitates to say “cut the crap”..

Although I like to drive my own car to work which is a manual drive and parallel park like a boss..

Although I make it a point to make all expenses mine and give back as much as possible to my family..

Although fending off internet trolls and just rolling the eyes and tuning out hate ha become my second nature..

That moment of sheer terror while I walk to my car-parking alone in the night after work where there are just too many drivers and guards – I hate it. I hate that I’m so scared. I hate that all my confidence and sass doesn’t support me now. I just can’t breathe till I drive out of the campus safe and sound. I hate it.
