Sometimes, dressing up is a special way to cheer yourself up when you're feeling down. I was never the one to depend on anyone for my happiness, I often relied on books and fashion, and now on activism even more so. There's an indescribable fulfillment you get when you're out in the streets serving the masses, that have spent all their lives exploited and oppressed by this cruel system. I don't want ephemeral happiness, I want to feel ecstatic achieving genuine social change and seeing the people enjoying free basic social services that we have all fought for. Especially if those services are one of our rights as citizens of this country, and it is the government's mandate to provide them.
