Health care and torts
It suddenly occurs to me (and seems so simple that it may be something obvious that I just never picked up on that the rest of the world already knew) that one effect of having a single payer or universal health care system would be a less litigious nation. If people weren’t faced with astronomical medical bills that they couldn’t pay for I bet the number of lawsuits would drop...

I don’t know if I can stay here forever.
I confess, as I go through this whole “should we move in together” thought process, right after the “should we get back together” thing, I have had some embarrassing google searches (Google: the Magic 8-ball of my generation). But virtually all romantic/sex advice on the internet (including from trusted sources) makes me realize that I am blessed in so many, many ways. ...
The beard looks nice. And it’s way blonder than I expected. Yes, there are a few greys, but it is mostly his regular light brown with a bunch of blonde. I’ve taken to calling him “Beardy,” “Blondie,” and “Fuzzface.”
Several different options have evolved at this point, the most ideal one being moving into a 1br apartment in my complex as soon as one opens up on the 2nd floor for just a unit change fee and pet deposit, but I’m pretty sure some way some how I will be sharing space with a man and dog within a few months, and paying at least $225 less in rent than I do now (added bonus, not primary...
Virgina Rape Law →
This is bad. This is terrible. But I want to make sure that people also remember, when they read about this travesty, that Texas, and I believe Florida and Arizona as well, already have bills just like this. And while there has been an injunction on the one in Texas while it’s in court, a judge has lifted that injunction. So while Virginia is trying to make this happen, it is already...
Because I latch on to things and obsess about them, I’ve been reading “should we move in together” and “what to think about before you move in together” articles. Aside from the super religious ones about how living in sin will make my inevitable (ha!) marriage* terrible and about “why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free,” the worst I’ve...
Everything is pretty much back to normal
Except that it’s way better. Part of me is still a bit hesitant, because hey, the dude did break up with me. But since that experience made him break down his walls, things have been incredibly amazing. I mean, it was great before, but being with a guy who not only loves me but is very aware of that fact and expresses it verbally and otherwise is mind-blowing. So here’s where I...
Most of all, I am tired of knowing. Knowing that my eyes have been opened, and...– I don’t want to be a feminist anymore. Been there, still visit often.
Salt and pepper.
Mike decided that as a Valentine’s Day gift to me, he is going to grow a beard. Within a couple days his face should be more soft than sandpapery. That’s love.
stumblingneon replied to your post: It’s done. Or starting. Or something. No one knows the details of your relationship except you and your partner. There is so much feeling and private moments that no one else sees. Barring brainwash or abuse (obv not the case here), you need to trust what you feel is right. I trust it. I just don’t like the part where other people don’t...
Oh yeah, and Hayden hasn’t called or texted me since a couple hours after I left his place Monday morning. So that took care of that, I guess.
It's done. Or starting. Or something.
I went on a date with Mike on Saturday night. We decided to do something fun and lighthearted before all the serious talk, given how intense things have been lately. We went to the local BYOB pinball arcade and had a pretty good time. I got him to play both DDR and Guitar Hero for the first time. 36 intense hours later, after talking and sleeping and hanging out and taking the man to buy 2...
So, I realized over the past week that I’m more upset about this break up than I was admitting to myself and others. But Hayden is awesome, and sweet, and adorable, and great, and thinks I’m fantastic. We had an excellent time last night. I think it will be a lot easier for me to not make bad decisions from now on.
I need to find a way to take off the crazy pants. My shit is not together.
I have 20 followers I don't know
That is terrifying. I mean, I know I’m awesome, but is my crazy that interesting?
OH MY GOD EXACTLY I LOVE YOU.

Emotions are confusing.
On the one hand, I worry that I’m not really ready to go for things with Hayden. On the other, I do really like him, and I know that if I don’t just go for it, I never will be ready, I’ll just keep hooking up with Mike whenever I’m lonely and never move forward.
