Holy crap, all of this and then some. “And that’s not real love—caring for someone without considering their happiness is the exact opposite of love, in point of fact.” absolutely this.

So this morning I woke up to mixed news. Bad news: a young woman at my alma mater was murdered by a home intruder. Good news: a friend currently deployed overseas saved two children after a car crash. And the world spins on.

Me neither. But I’m at the point where I have like 51% of my shit together and I am taking that as a win.

But you may find the social justice industry to be… a little unjust. Here are a few tips and...

soultired: One big reason I really hate it when people are negative towards psych meds (as a generality) is that the majority of the mentally ill people I’ve talked to have had their lives fucked up by either putting off trying meds for way too long, or worse, going off their meds for a really bad reason. I don’t mean that the side effects sucked, or that they couldn’t afford the meds, or that...

Entitled Generation: ME ME ME
ishouldbewhat: This is something I wrote a long time ago, but it coincides with that post going around Tumblr with the TIME cover. This phrase, this “entitled twenty something” moniker being thrust upon pretty much everyone in my peer group is getting out of fucking hand. At this point I’ve heard people who are barely thirty something use it, and that’s just sort of the straw that broke the...
I love Facebook. It lets me know that my cousin found out the sex of her baby, my parents’ next-door-neighbor’s oldest daughter is engaged (which is effed up because she’s three years younger than me) and one of the girls from my old Girl Scout Troop is now a professional lumberjacking competitor.

I have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest. I love learning how to make stuff. I hate when I browse through the DIY tag and see things like “Oh, I’d love to make a jewelry display out of a coat hanger!” Lady, that’s a picture of a fucking rake. And you’re an idiot.
I’ve been on a weird cleaning spree lately. Weird because I normally hate cleaning. But I think this is mainly spurred on by spring allergies and my own fed-up-ness and saying to myself that if I’m going to be miserable I’m going to at least make sure that I’ve done everything in my power to make my environment as un-miserable-making as possible. And now I want to...
Bestie gets home from Uganda in just under a month. I’m stupid excited, and I don’t even live in PA any more.
This weekend, so far, I have Cleaned the dishwasher (which was looking and smelling pretty gross) Wiped down the window frames in our room with a diluted bleach solution (because I have to do this every couple weeks to kill mold) Taken apart and cleaned the fan (which has never been cleaned before and was caked with dust.) Dusted alllllll the flat surfaces in our room, including our collection...

sexologist: I’m kind of obsessed with facebook, and that’s because while for some people facebook exists as a venue for drama and narcissism, I’ve used it to create a space that is productive, nurturing, and affirming. I’ve been working on it for years, and I’m happy to say, I feel successful that I have… AKA why Dr. Jill is totally awesome. If you like sex, read her blog! She’s...

It’s too nice out today. I don’t want to go to the gym, I want to go work in the garden. That counts, right? I mean, today is one of those days where I miss being in school because it’s not like I can ask my boss to have work outside after lunch.
Sometimes I just want a really crispy piece of bacon.
