Working at a non-profit, a cafe, and a horse stable; volunteering; managing healthy relationships; pitching proposals for D.I.Y. workshops; big plans; blogging; surviving everyday life; and looking atleast somewhat cute while doing it. If that’s not the definition of post-modern feminist hustler, then I don’t know what is.
