1. That Christine was on gchat to entertain me today (this is selfish; good luck today, Christine!)
2. That I could finally make sense out of the way you make/made me feel. And put it behind me.
3. That I never knew you.
4. That I could get a more fulfilling job. Must keep searchin’!
5. That my couch would move itself.
6. That I could fall asleep with you tonight.
I HATE that I feel like I’m always wishing my life away. This month has been brutal though, and I’m so ready for it to be over. I haven’t felt this stressed out since January; it’s taking a huge tole on my body and my health. I’m trying to be present and to slow down for the good things, and to realize that the bad things will pass and that I’m sure, as always, I’ll learn something big from it all.
But really, I can’t wait for fall! <3
- We're in the garden and Capucine is playing "indians & cowboys"
- Capucine, running : Watch out !! A Zombie !!
- Me : Do you know what zombies are ?
- Capucine : Yeah, they're like mammoths, but bigger.
- Me : Wha...?!! Hahaha !
- Capucine : What ?
- Me : I think you meant "Bison". (buffalo)
- Capucine : That's right ! Bison !
Unfortunately, even Americans accept the concept of “the opposite sex,” which is a terrible misnomer (I think “the other sex” works just fine). Too many people relate to each other as “men” or “women” rather than as George or Maria. When George doesn’t ask for directions when lost it isn’t because he’s a man, it’s because he’s a proud jerk. When Maria gossips too much it isn’t because she’s a woman, it’s because she has low-self esteem, or feels unable to express hostility.
If men and women thought of their sexual partners as persons more than as male or female, there’d be less questions about what men or women want in bed, and more questions about what Jose or Jing want. And that would lead to better sex for everyone.” —Sexual Intelligence (via atrapforfools) (via ihatethismess) (via skirtonfire) (via curiositykate) (via fuckyeahmenfolk) (via genderqueer)
