@RNL Yup stubble everywhere. It's driving me crazy, but for the last year or two now it's been at least half the reason I haven't let the hair grow back. It's winter, so I'm wearing sweaters more often, so it seems a good a time as any to try it.
Although today I am wearing a shirt with short sleeves and I'm super self-conscious because tonight I am seeing (1) an ex-boyfriend AND (2) my Ex's (capital E) college roommate, who ergo was essentially MY college roommate plus I had a minor crush on him. So. Tonight's gonna be weird and I'm going to wish I had waited to grow them out, but YOLO I guess.
@StandardTuber Sure! Ever since I started sprouting real body hair (as opposed to baby fuzz) I felt self-conscious; I had dark, coarse hair - for a white girl, anyway. My mother wouldn't allow me to shave my legs until I was 12, and it was mortifying and I was teased. (There was never any logical reason given, and my mother - who adopted me - has virtually no hair, anywhere on her body, so she has no idea of my travails.) One of my biggest pre-adolescent rebellions was when my parents went to Vegas for a weekend and, while staying with neighbors, I read the Book of Mormon and shaved my legs up to the knee with a disposable Bic.
At the very beginning of 10th grade, my tiny high school took everyone on a pre-school-year weeklong retreat up in the mountains. My best friend and I were taking showers in adjacent stalls when I mentioned something about how hairy my arms were, and she offhandedly said "oh I shave my arms!" Right then and there I shaved mine as well and I LOVED it. I still feel uncomfortable with letting them grow back, and I really hope they aren't as hairy now as I remember them being.
I am still learning to accept my arm hair... I have shaved it faithfully every couple of days since I was 15, and just 2-3 weeks ago (at age 27.5) decided to put down the razor and see where it goes from here. It is awkward and weird but I am trying.
@Hot Doom They are miracles. They are like big warm hugs for your entire lower body. They are the highlight of my evenings... going from pants or skirts/tights into these babies is just heaven.
I. Am. Obsessed.
@Hellcat YES Salted Caramel, and also the Banana Chocolate.
30% fleece-lined leggings in 3 colors (groupon holla!) so i never have to wear any other pants ever again
30% Talenti gelato/sorbet... it's $6ish for a pint but IDGAF because it's like an orgasm in my mouth
30% "I'm SUPER swamped with work, so sorry I can't make it to your [cocktail hour/birthday party/cat bar mitzvah]" = playing Sims in bed all weekend
10% Shake Shack Thursdays, which is a thing I just started today because YOLO.
@meetapossum Oh look, you're me!!
Cronuts, really? Are we all on board with (1) acknowledging that they are more than just A Fad, and (2) categorizing them as Breakfast instead of Morning Dessert?
@cat o'clock @allofthewine yup me too... I hate running, I just hate it.
