Cinderella has a Masters Exam

This week is an important week.

I'm playing Cinderella in panto, rehearsing and performing at the theatre all week.

I have a 5 hour law exam for my Masters on Wednesday.

I'm staring at both of those sentences, letting reality sink in and I'm thinking yep, I am 100% mad. 

I'm also sat here thinking about the cheetah girls film which includes the line from a song I don't wanna be like Cinderella, sitting in a dark old dusty cellar, waiting for somebody, to come and set me free.

And it's made me realise, that us women, well we can do whatever the f*ck we want. Maybe this post is unconsciously inspired by the recent inauguration and women's marches, but I'm proud to be an ambitious, 'nasty' woman. I'm proud to say that yes, I am doing all of that this week and will hopefully smash both things. 

And you know what, gender inequality may still be present, but I'm proud of every single woman who marched over the weekend, and I'm proud to know so many amazing women - bloggers, nurses, directors, health care assistants, friends.. you're all amazing.

So this is just a small reminder that if Cinderella can complete a masters exam, then you can also go and do whatever the f*ck you want.
