this was lovely!
@Jaya <3 even more perfect than I imagined. Thank you!
I really loved this. This year I got a raise I didn't ask for, a major media company "headhunted" me (didn't work out, still felt pretty good), I decided to move in with my boyfriend and followed up on my savings plan to make it happen and, most importantly, I wrote about and talked about and read about about and listened feminism more than ever. I feel like I'm so close to figuring out how I want to live my life. Also, I kept my toxic father out of it.
@OhMarie Me too! You can't mention a wedding dress covered in gold sequins and then not offer a picture!
I read your blog on those early days and loved it, even if I'm a few years older. I loved this too and I hope you find a comfortable middle.
@Nate Jones@facebook me too!
"I've always been the most emotionally available person in the room at any given time. I have to be because if I’m not then who is going to be the mother hen to everyone?" I'm also the oldest daughter and this hit home.
@Lucienne My mom HATES getting compliments about how pretty her daughters are (there's 4 of us) for that same reason
this was beautiful
