Don’t get me wrong- I watch Sex and The City. I never got why she wore a lot of shit on her head, or why she thought Chris Noth was remotely fuckable, but I still dug that slutty old lady who made all the cock puns. I’ve seen most of the episodes, I’ve drank booze and saw…
I love Sex and the City, but this is fucking hilarious. AND SO TRUE. WHY CAN’T ALL WRITERS LIVE LIKE CARRIE?
I’m excited to see my BHB family tomorrow. I’m excited to get back to working my favorite job. I’m excited to reintroduce my septum ring. I’m excited to soon get a new tattoo. I’m excited to soon dye my hair lavender. I’m excited to soon get my first bikini wax (okay, i’m actually a little nervous.) I’m excited to run my 5K on saturday. I’m excited to see my favorite band on saturday. I’m excited to go to the lit fest. I’m excited for more summer grilling. I’m excited to go home in July. I’m excited for cooler weather coming up. I’m excited for a summer class (weird).
“Someone handed me a sticker at a women’s rights march once. It said “I FUCK TO COME NOT TO CONCEIVE.” I can’t find that sticker and I want it back! Because what’s been lost in this whirlwind of abstinence-only, married-only, straight-only nonsense is pleasure. I don’t know about you, but when I have sex it’s because it feels good, not because I’m gearing up to knit some booties.”—

I bought Full Frontal Feminism a year ago for a Women & Gender Studies class and have been reading it on and off since then. I would consider it like Feminism 101, but it has really helped me understand a few things about being a young feminist, and has helped me feel better about things that I was conflicted on before with my own feminism.
“You have a right to experiment with your life. You will make mistakes. And they are right too. No, I think there was too rigid a pattern. You came out of an education and are supposed to know your vocation. Your vocation is fixed, and maybe ten years later you find you are not a teacher anymore or you’re not a painter anymore. It may happen. It has happened. I mean Gauguin decided at a certain point he wasn’t a banker anymore; he was a painter. And so he walked away from banking. I think we have a right to change course. But society is the one that keeps demanding that we fit in and not disturb things. They would like you to fit in right away so that things work now.”—Anaïs Nin (via dailystendhalnitesaudade)
