These are all really good points, and not just about wearing a swimsuit but for life: 1. It’s my BODY. I live with it 100% of the time. It does awesome things for me like breathing, and walking, and swimming and I decided long ago that I am not going to allow anyone to convince me to hate or be ashamed of something that I am with 100% of the time for the rest of my life.

Advice for guys on first dates
Went on yet another date! Well I’ve honed the art now so it’s really more a meeting than a date. Well it was boring as can be. He didn’t ask me any queries. I tried to just ask him questions and get to know him, but I kept having an argument in my head “tor don’t be self centered just try to get to know him- don’t resent having to be interested in him, just listen and learn” and yet I couldn’t...

I don’t think it’ll be too hard to do after the horrifying descriptions of abuse at egg and dairy farms. I ate eggs tonight and felt weird eating them. All I could think of while reading it is a feeling of certainty that “this is...

Thoughts on the end of my Salsa Classes
I do not think salsa dancing is for me. As a girl you are just a blind follower in salsa. Well maybe not blind, since you must skillfully respond to and even anticipate the moves of your partner. Kind of like a highly obedient dog. In fact, it reminds me of the dog whisperer’s terminology— “calm assertive” (appropriate pack leader state of mind) and “calm...
Tonight was the Summer Solstice. I went on a date, which ended badly. He asked are you bored? and I was, but I said “um no, I’m listening to what you are saying” but then he was like, you can tell me if you’re bored, and i just repeated my lame “no, i’m listening to what you are saying,” but finally i admitted, “well maybe slightly bored.” ...
