Here's my things with this - I've had an eating disorder for 10+ years that developed out of body insecurities and just kind of become my crutch for anything that bothered or upset me. I'm in treatment right now, and though the journey has been very long and full of falling off the horse, I'm progressing and seeing… » 5/15/14 9:45am 5/15/14 9:45am

I saw a friend post photos from Sea World while Blackfish was fresh on my mind and still being talked about in the media a lot, and I was really shocked. I'm not some big activist, but I wondered if she just didn't see the documentary? I don't know. I was surprised by how let down I was by seeing a friend go to Sea… » 3/14/14 12:13pm 3/14/14 12:13pm

I online dated off and on for 9 years. After a few bad dates early last year, I got extremely sassy to one eharmony match that had not responded to my questions, nudges, you name it. I would normally shrug it off, but I sent an email saying that I'm really disappointed he hasn't responded, and I think we have a lot in… » 3/12/14 11:46am 3/12/14 11:46am

How to not feel awful after rough night with friend?

This sounds like I'm asking about how to cure a hangover, but I'm really referring to being a complete bitch to a friend. This weekend, I had two friends (my maid of honor and a bridesmaid) throw me a bachelorette party. I can sometimes be a little to quick at the mouth, but I started taking birth control a week ago… » 3/11/14 2:53pm 3/11/14 2:53pm

The Hunger Games series had me hooked - I couldn't put it down. The first Divergent book was a good premise, but it was lacking something. I don't know what it is, but it just felt like it was on the brink of being something really great and thought-provoking, but it fell short. It just didn't hook me in, so I decided… » 3/06/14 2:52pm 3/06/14 2:52pm

So, basically what Paula is saying is that she views being gay the same way as being a racist. She's equalizing both to compare, so she believes both things must either be bad or be okay. And after what's happened, she has to know by now that racism = bad. I guess she thinks being gay is bad, too? The hits just keep… » 2/27/14 12:27pm 2/27/14 12:27pm

My immediate reaction to his performance when it was on TV was to clap at the end. I don't know where it came from, and I felt like an idiot, but I just started clapping without thinking. "If you watch him skate, you're very likely to hear someone say something about what "great young man" he is." You totally nailed… » 2/13/14 4:28pm 2/13/14 4:28pm
