I caved and bought a konjac sponge “with volcanic scoria.” I mainly wanted it to gently massage/increase circulation in my skin. So far, so good.

THIS is the shit that bothers me with tumblr

Lol throwback to when I made a comment about how I thought the way tumblr was handling ‘cultural appropriation’ stupidly and complaining for nothing and got hate for it for 3 days whoop

Wow the last one really pissed me off

I don’t usually reblog stuff like this… But if I had a work out goal, it would be greatly inspired by hers. I’d have to gain about 25-30 pounds, though.

If I don’t get this job in LA, I’m going to try to move out of the state… most likely to Kentucky for now, since I have friends there.

a vegan diet can help ease the pain. one of the reasons why some women get such bad pains is because period time = toxin release time. so the more toxins, the more pain. animal protein = toxins for humans lol

I will try vegan again at some point, I think. I tried it (read: non-refined food, no unfermented soy, macrobiotic, etc type veganism) for several years at a time since puberty and felt the worst during its duration, especially without animal fat from fish/game. My immune system suffered the most. I’ve been told that my body lacks an enzyme to properly digest foods due to my ancestry/genetics (west Asian/Caucasus mountain region) and thus need to get animal foods, as my ancestors adapted to and thus depended upon meat to sustain them.

Try to not be too dismissive if you can. We can be on the same level sometimes and I think listening to each other actually does a lot more good…even if we do think they are being ridiculous.

Listening is essential. But as a woman, there is no way I can compare being cold-shouldered to being sexually harassed on the street. I’ve experienced both, and the latter is much, much worse and infinitely more terrifying.

There’s a whole lot of “BOO HOO I’M A MAN AND WOMEN ARE MEAN AND DON’T SAY ANYTHING MORE THAN HI TO ME AND THAT SOMEHOW IS SO MUCH WORSE THAN WOMEN DEALING WITH THE THREAT OF RAPE AND MURDER JUST BY EXISTING ON A DAILY BASIS WWAAAAAAAHHHHHH” going on around the FB feed today.

TMI POST: Periods

I finally got my period this month. It came 9 days late, after being impeccably on time in the last 4+ months. It’s not any less painful than usual. I’m sitting at my desk with a hot water bottle on my tummy, alternating between hot green tea and room temperature banana-cacao smoothie. I know I should be avoiding caffeine, but I’m craving cacao… And the pain is finally subsiding. The worst of the cramps last for about 10-12 hours, but I slept through most of it, so I’m really just dealing with the tail end of the pain. 

I need to increase my B-vitamin, fish oil, and magnesium intake.

Our mattress is officially dead. We’ve been looking for natural mattresses, but can’t seem to find anything in our price range… So instead, we’ll get rid of our mattress and box spring, and sleep on a shikibuton. It’s A) much cheaper than your average “natural” mattress, B) isn’t loaded with toxic crap, and C) portable. So… Win, win, win.

Side note: My great grandparents slept on shikibutons in Turkey back in the day. Fun stuff.
