Six days ago, my husband and I moved. Well, sort of. Last Saturday, we packed up all our belongings, loaded them onto a U-Haul, and drove an hour away from our basement apartment. Continue reading “Moved!”
My husband and I are moving tomorrow. Tomorrow. Moving. Tomorrow. Tomorrow, we are moving. I can’t wrap my mind around it. It doesn’t feel real. It feels like the night before I got married. It feels like a dream. Continue reading “Terrified. | Excited.”
I am exhausted. Physically, mentally, emotionally exhausted. Last year on May 12, I was 11 days away from getting married. You’d think I would have been more exhausted then. Wrong. I am way more exhausted now. And yet, I actually feel okay. Continue reading “Exhausted. Totally, Utterly Exhausted.”
You know that thing I’ve been wanting to talk about for weeks now? Well it is finally “public knowledge” so I can finally write about it. I can write about it all! I’ve got some big news. Here we go… Continue reading ““When One Door Closes” and Other Clichés”

Two years ago, I wrote a post called “Lust: Not Just a Man’s Struggle.” I wrote this before I started dating my now husband. I wrote this before I had many views on my blog. As soon as I “revealed” my identity on my blog and started sharing some of my posts on Facebook, I thought about removing this post all together. I went back and re-read it with the intention of permanently deleting it. But I decided against it. This needs to be said.
Two years is a long time. Some of my views have changed since then, and so instead of all-out deleting it, I’ve gone back and I’ve made some minor changes. Okay. Let’s get to it.
P.S. I am not afraid of sexuality – in general, or of my own. So this post will contain a pretty frank discussion of sexuality – if you’re uncomfortable with that, I’m sorry. Turn back now. Continue reading “Lust: Not Just a Man’s Struggle (2.0)”
