Response to 23 Things Everyone Should Know About IUDs:
I got my mirena about a year and a half ago and it’s doing great! I got mine due to endometriosis and oral bc and patches did not help at all. Thankfully I had a great doctor who recommended it and she put it in while I was having surgery to remove endometrial tissue(i am forever happy that she did it that way rather than me being awake since I was 17 at the time). Other than at the beginning right after the surgery I haven’t had any bleeding at all. The only downside is that sometimes I can pick up when I should probably be on my period(mood swings) but I’d rather have that than constant cramps and bleeding like I had before it. If you have endometriosis I recommend getting the Mirena if all else fails.
Response to Where Should You Spend A Year Abroad?:
SEOUL. YES. PLEASE. PLEASE.
Exactly, I’m all for feminism but then when you get on tumblr there are multiple people there who claim to be feminists but act the exact opposite. It is kind of a turn off.
People just need to go out into the real world sometimes.
Because when people ask why I missed a week of school and why I had surgery I’m not going to go “Oh… nothing! Just silly women problems!” This isn’t the 1950s. If they ask why I’m going to tell them the truth.
It sucks. More women need to know about it since it’s so common.
3 months. Ha. If I run like 30 ft my heart rate goes up to like 180. I’d be dead within the first couple days. I wouldn’t even try to survive.
Response to 30 Adorably Awkward First Kiss Stories:
My first kiss was also my first date(a movie), he put his arm around me and he leaned in to kiss me and I just start laughing. I calmed down and he tried again(still giggled but the kiss went through). We kissed a couple more times(it was the worst, he stunk and I was in an uncomfortable position). I snuck out of the movie to go to the bathroom and texted my sister(who was picking me up) that I was dying and it was terrible. Thankfully being the great sister that she is at the end of the movie, she barges into the lobby and grabs me and yells “UGH WE HAVE TO GO. NOW.” I waved goodbye to my date and practically ran out of there.
I later found out that he was also the first kiss of my 3 closest friends.
I’m going to major in special education next year but right now I cadet in my elementary’s school classroom(I end up spending most of my day there) and I cannot tell you how much I love being in there. I’d rather spend my whole day there instead of being in my regular classes.
Even though it’s exhausting sometimes, and frustrating, it’s all worth it when they smile and hug you. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything.
Oh gosh. This is why my dad(a preacher) never took me there. -_- Not all Christians are like that, thank goodness.

Response to Why The “Rape Girls” Are Speaking Out:
When I was 11 I was sexually assaulted in the middle of Big Lots. A man exposed himself to me and masturbated. My mother was less than 10 feet away from me in a spot where she could see me and I could see her but the man in an aisle that she couldn’t see. At first I didn’t realize what “it” was(I was a very naive child) but when I realized what it was I started crying and ran to my mom. The guy ran off and an employee chased after him and the police got him. It turns out that this guy was a repeat offender. After that I was consumed with anxiety that if this happened then something worse is going to happen to me. I became wary of every man I saw in stores. I didn’t trust any man except for my dad and grandpa. I remember thinking whenever I went somewhere “Is that man going to do something to me or someone else?”.
This was in the summer so the next year at school my mom let my teacher know(my mom worked at the school and knew my teacher personally). She told my best friend’s mom to let her know so if we went out she wouldn’t leave me without an adult. She let me decide on who I wanted to tell after that. I don’t remember when I told my best friend or her reaction. Now when I tell people I play down the seriousness of it even though I know it shouldn’t. Maybe I don’t want them to know how much it affects me still. I’m not proud of how I told people and I wish I could redo it.
It took me a year to go back to Big Lots(now I won’t go very far from my mom though while I’m in there). A year or two after that to leave my Mom’s side in a store. My fear of men has decreased incredibly but whenever someone stares at me for too long or says or does something my anxiety goes crazy.
I understand both sides of the story. I want more women and men to speak out about their assaults to know that others aren’t alone, but not until they are ready to. It took me awhile to be able to talk about it to someone other than my family and therapist. I know what happened to me wasn’t as terrible as what happened to others but I think I just wanted to share my story to show that even the smaller sexual assaults leave big scars too.
You’re not alone and you’re still brave even if you don’t share your story. <3
He stayed at the hotel that my sister works at once. So I’m just waiting until the next time he goes there so I will just be happening to visit my sister there that day, and then oh no! I faint into his arms and it’s love at first sight.
We are going to have beautiful short babies together.
Response to 23 Signs You’re Obsessed With Christmas:
I help out in a special needs classroom and one of the kids, who rarely talked in the beginning and is saying more and more things now, has been singing Jingle Bells since day 1(She has the most adorable voice ever) and lately she’s been singing more Christmas songs and it’s precious.
Today she was singing The Christmas Song in her own little chipmunk voice. ^-^
Can’t wait til’ Christmas!

Response to 13 Disappointing Facts About Candy Crush:
I’m on 197. And according to my Nexus it’s September 10.
When I was younger my older sisters convinced me that a ‘hickey from Kenickie’ was a bad phrase and I would most likely get grounded for saying it. When my dad got home from work I ran to him crying and telling him what I did wrong.
My mom even went along with it.
