With an anxiety problem for kicks.
I worry about worrying, but for the first time in a very long time I feel very stress free.
The last two years I’ve been rushing to finish my degree. Managed to graduate debt free, and held a job.
Those are all the things I guess normal people would be content with, but I was miserable the entire time.
I over worked myself, and found the things I should be enjoying were passing away.
So I vowed to myself that I would do things that made me happy.
Some how that turned into transferring schools, taking on $6500 in loans, and quitting my job.
The weirdest thing is that I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time.
I come to realize that I was completely obsessed with a false idea of success that I was bound to fail at.
I guess I’m really lucky to get the chance to start over.
Question for feminists: is it wrong for women to want to be physically attractive to men?
There is nothing wrong in trying to achieve what you believe to be personal beauty in order to attract another.
What’s wrong is believing you have to look, act, or think a certain way to impress someone. You shouldn’t have to change to impress someone, and how you dress definitely shouldn’t be only because you think someone male or female prefers it.
I buy the skimpiest lingere I can find because I know my boyfriend likes it and I like to treat him.
That being said, I don’t always wear it because my world doesn’t always revolve around him and his needs. I wear what I’m comfortable with when I’m confortable and I hope all people can do that.

- a poem by me
I have no one in my life who would actually stand up for me. No one.
I would bro
Because my boss is one of the most unprofessional people I’ve ever met. I’m going to have a wonderful chat with human resources. I couldn’t take it, but Alex is making dinner which makes things a little better. I just don’t get paid enough to be lied to my face.
Totally agreed. I love notactuallycute as well!
Just because animals don’t cry doesn’t mean they don’t experience many of the same emotions we do. They certainly do feel pain, fear, sadness, and grief. It’s well documented that animals have rich emotional lives.
Yes, I agree! And they don’t show any of them through human responses! (with a few exceptions). For example:
- Elephants do not cry.
- When you see a dog smile, 99% of the time it is a stress smile.
- Hamsters don’t do backflips when they’re happy.
- Birds aren’t “dancing” when they swipe back and forth against the cage bars.
Pretty much what I’m saying is animals have their own body language, and we should still empathize with them, even if they’re not using human body language.
I worked at a conservation museum for many years with all sorts of animals from shark and bears to turkeys and turtles.
A big part of my job was animal education. I had a large folder full of details on different species, then I went out into the public with live animals and taught about them.
It was important that I never allowed people to “pet” animals. They could “touch.” animal names were not said, and I constantly repeated the phrase “anything with a mouth can bite.”
That being said, this conversation about animal emotions are ridiculous. Animal emotions are complex, a family friend of mine was recently killed after an elephant matriarch became agitated after the death of her friend. I’ve had birds of prey who prefered me to feed them over anyone else, and I’ve bonded with mountain lions.
We like to forget that as humans we are still mammals, we are from nature, we are animals. The same traits that make us who we are, are found throughout the wild world as well. It is important to recognize the difference between us and our wild counterparts, and it is equally important to stay educated on them as well.
But I feel that it is completely wrong to say that we aren’t equal or that animal emotions are greatly different. We are constantly learning that the way we viewed animal 50 to 60 years ago was completely wrong. They and their emotions are so complex.
I also think giving human qualities to animals can be a good thing. It allows for a more loving relationship between us when we feel we can relate.
Overall their mannerism may not be exactly the same but that doesn’t mean the can’t feel the same, and we shouldn’t be so worked up over the elephant picture.
Get mad over abuse, destruction of wildlife, and poachers. Not the little stuff.
