The Feminist Traditionalist →
My new blog dealing with the contemporary women’s internal conflict between traditional values and feminist ideology.

… But I’m really looking forward to scheduling for next quarter. I know, I know. Who looks forward to that kinda stuff? But, the fact of the matter is, I do. I’m a weird college kid. I’ve never been to a frat party (I went to one during the second week of my freshman year; I didn’t find it that appealing). I don’t party on Wednesday nights. I’ve never...

Possible Reasons for My Unhappiness:
Physical and mental exhaustion. Uncertainty about the future. Inner conflict between what I want and what is expected of me. Financial woes. Guilt that I am (somehow) unintentionally abandoning my family. Restraint, either self-inflicted or imposed by others. Loneliness; feeling like I do not have anyone to talk to. Always feeling like I have to hide from people. My spirituality —...
