The Infinitist Day

I'm mostly reblogging: Thoughts, Feminism, Benedict Cumberbatch, politics, equal rights, art and Tom Hiddleston for a friend. :)

1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

3. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

4. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

5. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

6. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

7. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

8. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

9. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

10. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

11. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

13. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

14. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

15. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

  • Homosexual: Someone attracted to someone of the same gender as themselves.
  • Bisexual: Sexually attracted to two or more genders.
  • Polysexual: Sexually attracted to many genders, but not all.
  • Pansexual: Sexually attracted to all genders. (this and bisexual, and sometimes polysexual, are often considered to be the same thing and different people may simply identify as any one of them due to their own personal reasons)
  • Demisexual: Sexually attracted to people only after forming a bond with them first.
  • Asexual: Having no /sexual attraction/ to others; having no desire to have sex.
  • Heteroromantic: Male-identifying individual romantically attracted to female-identifying individuals, and vice-versa.
  • Homoromantic: Attracted romantically to the same gender.
  • Biromantic: Attracted romantically to two or more genders
  • Polyromantic: Attracted to many genders (but not all)
  • Panromantic: Attracted romantically to all genders
  • Demiromantic: Romantically attracted to people only after forming a bond with them first.
  • Aromantic: Having no /romantic attraction/ to others; having no desire to be in a romantic relationship.
  • Polyamorous: Someone who is attracted to, and is comfortable with being in a relationship with more than one person at a time.
  • Transexual/Transgender (Term depending on generation and location): An individual who identifies as a gender other than the one they were assigned at birth to be. Often shortened to trans
  • Cisgender: Someone who identifies as the gender that they were assigned as at birth. (ex. matches their birth certificate) Often shortened to cis
  • Intersex: Someone who has ambiguous genitalia that doesn't fit into our strict dichotomy of uterus or testes. Often forced into surgery to correct their genitals at a very young age, causing psychological and physical harm later in life
  • Nonbinary: Outside of the gender binary of male and female. (Can be used as an umbrella term or as its own identity)
  • Genderqueer: Outside of the gender binary. (**This is not an umbrella term like the post said before I edited it! Do not use this as an umbrella term for nonbinary individuals, simply use 'nonbinary'. Queer is considered a slur and not everyone likes to be associated with the word)
  • Agender: Someone who feels gender neutral, or someone who experiences a 'lack' of gender.
  • Bigender: Someone who identifies as two separate genders.
  • Trigender: Someone who identifies as three separate genders.

  • Amab/Afab: Same as dmab/dmab, except with 'assigned' instead of 'designted'.
  • Camab/Cafab: Same as previous, except prefixed by 'coercively', to highlight the lack of choice.
  • Reblog to inform! And if there's any I missed or anything that should be clarified, please message me! Always looking to expand the proper vocab. : )
