On this rollercoaster of a journey called life.
No lie - I had no idea this was you. I literally was on the homepage, scrolling down, saw your photo and was like - "Huh, she's pretty. A new hair model." You look fab :)

OH MY GOSH!!!!!! I can't read, I can't read!! Oh là, oh là, oh là là! I want to, but I don't want to read this thread. I can't watch it :'( I've only seen the first two episodes of this season. And it sucks because the website I used stopped working. I remember I watched the whole of season 1 online earlier this year, in like a 12 hour sitting. I called my sibling even with the time difference.
I love this show!! Damnit I wanna watch! :'( :'( :'(

@ChristieRJohnson " For some, engaging in the world is as natural a breathing; for others, it's suffocating."
I SO completely understand this! It totally describes me to a T. Thanks for your post. Even though I do feel extremely anxious, I'm working on getting out of my comfort zone. I've never been one for small talk with large groups of people so that adds to my anxiousness. I'm clearly an introvert, and it's like I don't need so much social stimuli. Once I've had my fill, I've checked out.

Thanks for sharing :) Some of these links are quite interesting.
Does anyone have a Brita pitcher? I just bought one and I can't tell if I'm doing something wrong or if it's defective. I have the Brita Marella. My problem is with the cartouche --- the Maxtra white filter that you place inside the entonnoir (the jug that goes inside the pitcher). The instructions say I'm supposed to hear a "click" but I'm not hearing anything, and I'm really pushing it inside. It doesn't move when I push it in, but I think the water is draining too fast for it to actually be filtered.
If someone can help, thanks!

@Shulamit Thanks so much! Yup, I'm much more like the Williams sister. I've actually been complimented on wearing lots of red. I've been told it makes my skin pop These are helpful ideas on adding and lixing colours in ones wardrobe.

I'm still slightly confused about finding and knowing your skin tone. Is it the patches of skin that haven't been kissed by he sun? Around my eye area it's definitely yellow/gold though my overall skin tone is probably similar to dark chocolate.
Can someone provide a link to the previous article discussing this? Please and Thanks! :)
The excerpt from the front page, drew me in. Seems like an interesting read.

I think the amusement park idea is fantastic, throw that in with a visit to a haunted house and I'm so game! Hopefully he is as well. These are some terrific ideas for a first date. I've always thought that doing something unordinary for a first date is a great way to get a glimpse of the type of man / human being the person is.
2 years, 1 month ago on Come Hither: First Date Suggestions For Awesome People...
I really love your articles. They're very eye opening for a young woman such as myself . I'm in such a suffocating box when it comes to sex and my sexuality. It's sort of been drilled into me to "be good." Everytime I speak to a relative - it's basically "be a good girl." I'm nearly 22! And I held fast to that notion. How long must I be a so called "good girl?" I'm willingly, slowly, discovering my body and creeping bit by bit out of the box.
Sex, in the culture of my family, is never discussed. Possibly the same as in the American culture...though I grew up straddling both.
I find the whole topic of sex and sexuality to be so fascinating and I'm inherently glad that it can be discussed in this forum - straight, no chaser.
Maybe it's TMI, but the weird thing is I used to touch myselff all the time when I was younger! As I grew up, that's when I started to feel so ashamed and guilty about touching myself. -- and mentally beat myself up about it. As if it's wrong...
Now I've made the conscious decision to work through it and break it down one by one. If I don't know, am not familiar with my body, know what I like and don't like, -- how can I expect to truly enjoy having sex with someone who knows the ins and outs of theirs while I'm left clueless and helpless about my own?!
