I Can’t “Contain” Myself

I’ll tell you a little something and some of you might be like, “LOL, WHUT. You are insane.” Well. Maybe most of you will say that. It sorta feels insane. Even I can admit that. Or maybe you’ll be like, “No, that makes perfect sense.” It sorta feels that way, too. I’m at a crossroads where I can either take something on and potentially reap the benefit of it, or say, “No thanks” and potentially save myself from a nervous breakdown. About a month ago,...

In case you’re new here (or to feminism in general) I ought to inform you that I am ardently pro-choice. Pro-choice to my very bones. I will probably spend the rest of my life fighting and advocating for women to keep ownership over their bodies no matter what may have taken up residency in their uterus. To me, abortion is...

“Talk to Your Doctor About Adding Abilify…”

***Trigger Warning*** (By the way, I hate saying “Trigger Warning” on my own posts. It just seems so self-important, like, “Oh, I’m going to feed you a real sob story now. Brace yourselves.” But out of respect for others struggling, I know it’s a necessary disclaimer. I just don’t want anyone thinking that I think what I’m about to say...

5 Things You Don’t Know About Me…

Well, you may not know these things. I don’t know what you know but I don’t think I’ve mentioned them much here so perhaps not. Let’s see… 1. The name of my first band was Emil Muzz. I scored the gig as lead singer in that band one fateful night while tagging along on a babysitting job. It was Christmas...

Why I’m Going to the Founding Moms Conference and You Should Too.

I have some sort of major malfunction where I can never quite allow myself to take my career seriously. No matter how “big” I get on the internet, no matter how many people pay me to write or speak, no matter the degrees I earn or the compliments I receive, I always chalk it up to some sort of accident....

How I’m Getting Dinner On the Table (Even though I’m Exhausted.)

When Jonas started eating solids seven years ago, I vowed that I would get our new family to sit around a dinner table each evening like a “normal” family. It’s the kind of Normal Rockwell life that I always wanted growing up, and research shows that family dinner helps create healthier, happier families for a variety of different reasons. Problem...

The Only Way I’ll Make it Through The Next 9 Months…

I’m seeing a new therapist. The new therapist senses that the start of my school year is a huge source of stress and anxiety for me. (Really? I can’t get out of bed and I’ve lost all interest in living, but that’s a normal reaction to the first week of school, right? Right? It’s not? Damn.) So he asks me...

Too Much of a Good Thing.

(Disclaimer: I’m turning on the TMI filter again for this post, so if you don’t want to hear about things I probably shouldn’t be talking about on the internet, come back another day! If you’re family or in charge of my grades, maybe sit this one out. Otherwise, prepare yourself for some grown-up conversation about lady parts.) Remember the 30-Day...
