"Porn videos are a bad way to get sex education unless the video is specifically meant to be educational. That’s like if you wanted to learn how to drive a car by watching movies with lots of car chases; that would be a bad way to learn how to drive: watching Hollywood films with lots of fancy driving going on. Right? You would not learn driving skills or safe driving skills. Same thing with porn movies—they’re made for entertainment. They’re not made to teach you how to have safe sex, or even sex that feels very good."-Dr. Ruth Neustifter, Anal Like a Pornstar
I had a really bad day so to make myself feel better I made donuts
‘tsundoku’ - the Japanese word for buying books & not reading them, leaving them to pile up.
No idea. Why don’t you try going away for a weekend to a larger city? You don’t have to make friends or talk to anybody, but just try soak in the environment, plus you might be able to find a cafe with poetry readings or the theater or a musical.
unfortunately I do that a lot—go to places and just watch people. And while it does make me feel better idk I don’t think it would cure the problem I’m having right now?? If that makes sense. orz;; Thanks for the suggestion, though! Also luckily I did find this which is a list of most of the poetry events in MN! EXCITE! :>
one thing I think I really do need to change though is this idea that I ALWAYS need someone with me when I go places. I mean, it’s been proven that no one likes approaching someone who’s part of a group. Maybe if I start going out by myself more it’ll be easier to meet new people. /o\
you should practice speaking to people with me because I like talking a lot, typing is restrictive to my soul because dyslexia
cries PHONES. ;; Come to Minnesota and we can talk face to face the phone is so terrifying idekd;fsg’;’fhdhdher
the questions you ask in the latter half of your post are things i ask myself too… maybe when you do go on outings, don’t push yourself to socialize, necessarily? just be in the environment, and socializing will come once you’re used to the space.
that’s probably the right way to do things. ;; idk I get so wound up because I feel like I’m not doing a good job at being social, and it just ends up being a self-fulfilling prophecy. Maybe if I can convince myself to try again I’ll just tell myself to not feel like I need to force anything and I’ll feel a bit more natural instead of worrying so much that I can’t get any words out. orz

There she waits looking for a savior
Someone to save her from a dying self
Always taking ten steps back and one step forward
She’s tired, but she don’t stop

so ~~as you may know~~ yesterday was the big senate vote for the legalization of gay marriage in MN! I watched the whole thing and probably horrified my entire twitter feed by livetweeting the event. (Thank you so much to everyone who didn’t swiftly unfollow me… orz;;) But then when it passed I got SO EXCITED and we were gonna go down to the capitol because EXCITEMENT!!!! but then it turned out the party would be today for a rally and to watch the governor sign the bill into law and then there would be a big hubbub downtown to celebrate so—!
pride flags lined Wabasha bridge since yesterday morning and it’s not even pride month yet sd;ljg;sgsdg

“But how @%^# up are our standards of beauty, or gender constructs… that we make little girls hold in their farts until no one is around to smell them”
