And I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

I’m about to change your sex life, maybe forever.

Yes, that’s right. Allow me to introduce you to a sex tip that’s been changing the game for me: basically, having sex every morning. It’s a game-changer.

Here are a few articles for reference:

You feel crazy. You feel needy. You start to doubt everything about yourself. I’ve tried everything:

  • I played hard to get.
  • I waited for him to initiate.
  • I planned…

And I am not going to apologize for it, either

I never thought I’d say it, but I am wearing scrunchies now. I am in my thirties and I am pulling my hair back with fabric a la 90s style. I swore I’d never do it, but here I am.

Blame it on the pandemic. Blame it on working from home. Blame it on the fact that I just literally do not care anymore.

I am over the “rules” of what is “age-appropriate.”

In fact, let’s burn the whole damn rulebook.

If you’re like me, you are way too concerned about what other people think. It is not something that I am super proud of, but it’s the truth…

I have not thought about this in years.

trigger warning: description of sexual assault

I don’t remember how old I was, but I was young enough that I still went to the doctor’s office with my mother. She had taken me out of school to make the appointment.

I had an ear infection. Or maybe a sinus infection.

Whatever it was, I know I was going to see the Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctor. I remember waiting a long time. Maybe an hour.

The lights were bright white and fluorescent and the waiting room chairs were uncomfortable. …

The shape and size of a woman’s body are not a joke.

I’ll be honest: I love Friends. I loved seeing a group of young people on screen trying to navigate adult life. These episodes got me through late college nights writing papers and through heartbreaks of my own.

But, in the rewatching of this show, I think we all see how problematic it can be.

For starters, this show is so white-washed it may as well be an Ikea. It has an archaic view of homosexual relationships. It’s super problematic about Chandler’s trans father.

As a curvy woman with an eating disorder, this one stings. I watched the show for the…

It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, kids.

I’m a chubby, middle-sized woman and I like it that way.

Like many women, my relationship with my body has been rocky. I’ve put it through diets and extreme fitness programs and an eating disorder I can’t seem to shake.

I’ve watched my body grow over the years and had a ton of emotions tied to that. But now, I’m finally at a place where I feel good.

Here are some of the sh*tty things that happen to me as a middle-sized woman.

It’s a challenge to find clothes available in my size that actually look good.

Does anyone else struggle with knowing your actual size? I swear, clothing companies do not make this…

Allow me to speak for the group, please.

I’m going through a family health crisis. My dad has a severe, life-threatening disease and the only place I can see him is in the walls of a hospital room. I’ll be honest: it f*cking sucks.

Because I have been spending so much time at the hospital, I have come up with a list of things we all hate about hospitals. Because I’m not in the mood to be positive right now, okay?

Hospitals suck and here’s why.

We hate having to be there in the first place.

I start feeling sick to my stomach the minute I pull into the parking garage. I hate that I know which floor…

A few thoughts that I don’t know how to say out loud.

It’s hard to be fully honest about our sex lives.

We want people to see the glossy, shiny parts of us. The totally in love parts. The can’t-keep-our-hands-off-each-other parts. The first dates and wedding dates and walking down the aisle parts.

We don’t know how to be honest about what scares us.

I have a lot of fears about my sex life that I’m afraid to admit out loud. So maybe, instead, I can write them out here.

I am scared to tell you that my weight is getting in the way.

I have binge eating disorder and have gained a lot of weight over the years. It’s not easy for me. My emotional…

Things are not “getting back to normal” for me.

When someone you love is seriously, terminally ill, your life gets swallowed up into a bubble. It’s you and your family and everyone else is out there.

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend. People are gearing up to go to the beach. People are excited about a three-day weekend. They’re waving goodbye to a pandemic that kept them alone and isolated for so long.

And me? I’m still alone and isolated. Maybe now more than ever.

I want to breathe a sigh of relief like the rest of the world, but I am still in the trenches.

For all of 2020, I was incredibly cautious. For one thing, I didn’t want to get Covid, but for an even greater reason, I…

This is what it looks like when a human being goes unchecked.

Rachel Hollis is at it again. I thought I wouldn’t need to write about her anymore, but here we are.

For reference, I wrote a post about her last year and how problematic she is:

Now, I’m done with calling her problematic. Now, Rachel Hollis is straight-up dangerous. This week, we have witnessed what it looks like for someone to go unchecked. We watched a woman record herself spouting privileged drivel and refusing to apologize for it.

Girl, your career is over. (Well, it should be, at least. …

And, no, I will not be crossing my ankles, either

I don’t remember the first time that I was told to cross my legs, but I am fairly sure that it was during Sunday church service. I was probably wearing a scratchy dress and most likely didn’t have boobs yet.

But still, because I was wearing a dress, I was told to cross my legs.

And somewhere along the way, it didn’t matter if I was wearing a dress or not. It was just really important for me to cross my legs, even in pants. In heels. In flats. At the office. At dinner.

Well, I’m here to tell you…
