On How to Form a Knitting Circle

There has not been nearly enough witchcraft in my knitting circles.

On Beverages I Have Loved

@tofuswalkman I am woefully inexperienced in the ways of bitters. Is there a particular one to start with?

On Beverages I Have Loved

I just broke my favorite water cup the other day so this is really speaking to me. I am now using a smaller water cup. It is not nearly as satisfying.

I've developed an obsession with generic lime sparkling water. I buy it by the fridge-pack.

On Let's Talk About Birth Control

I feel like I've tried all the birth control at this point: pill, nuvaring, IUD.

I liked the pill and nuvaring because it seemed like that helped me be less emotional during PMS. I used those through my twenties. I went off bc for a couple years. During that time I was depressed and angry more often, especially around my period.

At 29, I got a Mirena IUD and I think I liked that best. There was an adjustment during the first few months, but then I basically had no period for two years. It was great until the blast thing shifted out of position. Since having the IUD removed last fall, I'm back on the pill. I am not liking it as much this time around.

I'm also considering stopping hormonal bc. Partly because I'm increasingly ready to have a baby and also because I'm sick of the hassle.

On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I love the drapey t with a blazer look paired with slim/skinny pants or jeans and statement necklace or scarf.

Perfection! I will definitely be using these as inspiration as I begin to long hard slog to replace my passwords.

Leaving work in 10 minutes to go see Captain America!!!! I have been waiting for this day all week. It might be a sign of good things to come since this afternoon I got some good news about my job that I can't talk about yet but am super excited for.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) They included the link in this excellent rundown of how Chris came to hate acting, which is also a great read:
