@coolallison That sounds pretty annoying! I have never been to SXSW.. is it hard to get in anywhere unless you are fancy/have a lot of money?
@stonefruit Gah, so cute!!
@stonefruit Thank you! I would like to give them a Piece of My Mind but I can't because they control my destiny. Hate, hate, hate.
I would really like it if the people who said they would write letters of recommendation for me would write the letters, then I would like it if the stupid, overpriced bundle of uselessness known as LSAC would send those letters so that I could try to get into an LL.M. program. That is all.
The music video for Dark Horse is nuts! Did the large man bring her HOT CHEETOS? And was that a cameo by the internet sensation dog, Boo?There are no words in my vocabulary to describe how I feel about this.
Correction to tag: should be Kim Kardashian Kontour, no?
Thai food and House of Cards sounds pretty amazing.
Far be it from me to question the wisdom of Baba Yaga (and I do worry about witchy revenge) but I have alternate advice, as I too was once in the same position of obsessing over the menfolk while the rest of my life needed tending. Not a vision board, rather trying out a 30-day Man Sobriety regime. No flirting, coy texts, etc. And it actually worked! When I wasn't allowed to bother with men, I managed to focus on more important stuff. Not saying every day was easy (as I suspect is true of any attempt at sobriety), but once the 30 days were up I found that my habit to devote so much thinking time to dudes had lessened substantially. And I paid attention to neglected friends, thought seriously about my career, and bought a couch!
Thank you for this article! My experience with HSV is similarly confused. About six years ago, my boyfriend at the time had a scary outbreak on his man parts. We went to a clinic and the blood test came back positive for HSV 1. We both assumed that I gave it to him because the outbreak occurred when we were together, but I never got tested (in retrospect, I cringe at my decision to blindly accept that it was my "fault" and not question that assumption). We had unprotected sex for years and neither of us had an outbreak. So when we broke up last year, I got tested for STDs including HSV 1 and 2, and was negative for both. I got tested again a few months later and was again negative. I'm not sure what the moral of the story is, except to second the sentiment that HSV is super confusing!
@Myrtle I went through with it on Sunday and am super happy with the result (although now have to figure out what types of products will work best to not be puffy) and saved the hair so that I can donate it!
