I worked at Blockbuster in 2001 and 2002, in Connecticut, and I'm so weirded out by how exactly the same our experiences were. I, too, can no longer wear khakis. And I felt weirdly sad (and very nostalgic) when Blockbuster went belly up.
I actually thought this was kind of funny! I mostly agree with her advice.
@meetapossum YUP. Anguy is my guy. Even after two seasons of many special ladyparts feels, that actor just makes me feel exxxtra special.
"any major Metropolitan city." Cause I don't live near one. Would that I did! But in the meantime, Chipotle will have to suffice. Plus, I love carb-bomb burritos. They may not be authentic, but they ARE delicious.
@Ames "the VHS copy that I recorded off of HBO during a free trial weekend" = pretty much every movie I owned.
@Ellie Try non-hormonal birth control. I had a ParaGard copper IUD for years (just got it out to try to make a baby [weird]). My periods were pretty heavy for about six months, but they evened out. And it was nice to not have to worry about refilling a prescription or anything.
ETA: Yeah, the insertion of the IUD was ... uncomfortable ... But that was so temporary. The main pain was just the insertion (a minute max). Then there was like heavy menstrual cramps for a day or two. YMMV, do what's right for you, etc. etc. But I just can't sing the praises of the IUD enough.
I've been a vocal feminist about forever, and when I was 18, someone asked me how that came to be. It's an interesting question, because I feel like I just always was a feminist. Like my mom, and dad, and grandparents are feminists. The idea that all people are equal, regardless of gender or race or religion or sexuality, was just always there. I have an amazeballs family. Sorry for the brag, but I'm just always so very lucky to have been born to them.
You guys!!! I think I might have convinced my fiancé to build me a tiny house. Oh please please please. Fingers crossed!

Oooo, I sense some dishy royal gossip here...
I suppose you could close the door, but my cat sits outside and meows and scratches under it if I do that.
