What men don’t understand is that women are FIERCELY PROTECTIVE of underage girls because we remember when we were young and some adult man made us uncomfortable or manipulated us or was inappropriate with us and we were powerless.
Shopping for interview clothes is the literal worst but I now successfully have flats, slacks, a fancy undershirt, a fancy cardigan, and a blazer. Still need to look through what sort of tops I have to wear under the blazer, buy pantyhose, and do my nails etc. That plus hair* plus pearls and I think I’m set.
I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate being the clothes size that I currently am. GOOD LORD.
* How the fuck does one do hair for interviews. Fuck me.
when the solutions to a medical problem are “reduce stress” i am like? what am i going to do about this????? not go to school?? get rid of my parents??? force myself deeper down the road of total and complete apathy???
My church is doing a curriculum called Just Eating regarding food from both a personal perspective (what do I put in my body?) and a political/community perspective (how do my food shopping choices affect others?). There is an adult group doing it (I’m in that) and the youth group is also doing it (basically 12 - 18 year olds). I am meeting, hopefully Friday, with the youth minister to discuss how to make it sensitive and safe for teens dealing with body image concerns, dieting, and eating disorders. I have my own personal opinions but I could use others — what makes a conversation about food and eating safe for those with these concerns? What else should I tell the youth minister?
My classmate’s best friend had a surprise baby over the weekend?!
She thought she had an ovarian cyst rupture and went to the ER and they were like “you’re in labor” and to the surprise of everyone present (doctors, nurses, etc.) she delivered a 7 lb 8 oz perfectly healthy baby girl?
In the past 9 months she only gained 5 pounds and continued to have her period? Apparently the placenta detached or something (??) so that’s why it didn’t grow OUT??
I AM NOW CONVINCED THAT I AM PREGNANT AND WILL HAVE A SURPRISE BABY
that whole “women can make babies out of bone marrow men are irrelevant now” is invalidating of the existence of trans people i shouldn’t have to explain this and yet here we are in the year of our lord 2014
let’s be clear:
a trans woman and a cis woman can make babies together.
I have done nothing valuable since I got home and I am trying to be okay with it.
Mostly I feel like puking and crying. I am so overwhelmed so much of the time. Also, my head hurts. Like a lot. I am going to drink gatorade mixed with seltzer and then go to sleep, like in the next twenty minutes, and just…just fuck this day.
I had to turn down an offer to go for a walk with my friend & her baby & dog (because I have 2 midterms this week and am studying) and now I wish I hadn’t and I’m so lonely, so lonely, so lonely but I would probably have ruined it anyway because I’m so socially awkward and David isn’t helping me feel better, he’s just stumbling over his words and saying stupid stuff that makes me feel worse and I’m just sitting here crying and not getting any work done and good. God. I hate graduate school.
