Shoutout to the girls doing ‘dirty jobs.’ The women who can’t wear makeup, nail polish, flattering clothes or have piercings and tattoos when at work. Props to the ladies who come home with dirt under their nails, stains on their uniforms and smells stuck to them that cannot be washed away with a single shower. To the girls who don’t feel pretty in their workplace. To the trans girls who cannot yet pass in the workplace. I see your dirt, smears, scars and dry skin. I see your scrubs, coveralls, aprons and smocks. I see your messy buns and steel-toed boots.

Your hard work is beautiful. Your blood, sweat and tears are worthy of respect. I am so proud of you and all you do. You are just as stunning in your work clothes as you are on a night out.

This title is kinda strange, but I think I’m LIKIN’ IT. 

Here is the start of this series on collocations! I’m really busy but I don’t want to become inactive so I think this is a good way to keep learning (and also having something to do in chapel)
As an introduction, collocations are basically the natural expressions for certain phrases. Do you ever notice when listening to non-native speakers that sometimes what they say is correct literally, but not really the natural way you’d say it in that language? That’s what collocations are. So saying something like “I took money from the ATM.” vs. “I withdrew money from the ATM.”

So today, we’re talking about hygiene! Like taking baths, showers, grooming, and all that jazz. 

I only provided sentence examples for about one in each category, so if you need clarification, feel free to message me!
