It's society's fault for making us feel ashamed. Like, how is it even possible that having pubic hair is seen as political now? We are humans. Humans have HAIR. Deal with it.

18. You'd really like to know how to speed up the process of breaking in a pair of Birkenstocks, because seriously, if you don't buy them secondhand, it'll take forever.
