I am yearning to form a community of likeminded women

Keywords: , college , initiation , ireland , life transition , liminal

I want to reconnect with my creativity, and I want to find a job that is interesting, that gives me clues about what I’d enjoy to pursue in the future, and that is -somewhat- fulfilling. Not too much to ask, no?

In the middle of the 17th century, Mrs Townsend found a lump in her breast: Diagnosed with breast cancer by a local physician, she underwent a mastectomy without anaesthetic – an agonising procedure

While much of Mrs Townsend’s experience is mercifully alien, the silence that surrounds her post-mastectomy experience is eerily familiar. Each year, 55,000 women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer, and up to 40% will choose to undergo a mastectomy. Mastectomy patients are routinely offered surgical replacement of the breast tissue, whether with saline or silicone implants, a tissue transplant from elsewhere on the body, or a combination of the two.

Keywords: intro

We can feel like we have this set order to our lives and that we have it all together for that moment, but then we fall into disorder because of countless things. Such as mental health, debt, loss of family or friends, anything that is truly out of our immediate control really. Life is all about entropy, the chaos and randomness of the world that eventually brings order, and as long as we don’t give up along the way, we will always see our dreams come to fruition.
