Yay inspiration

My friend Kayla was telling me about a dilema she had ealier today. Kayla was hanging out at a friends house off campus and found herself without a ride back to campus. She called the girl across the hall from her, Michelle, for a ride. Michelle said that she wasn't doing anything, but wouldn't pick Kayla up.

There are a million reasons Michelle might have decided to not pick up kayla, it was cold, she was hanging out with other people, she had a headache, or it was simply an inconvience.

Kayla was annoyed. I figured that Kayla has three options a) to forget about it. B) hold a grudge against Michelle and refuse to help her in the future. or c) decide that it would be best for forget about the incident, and to grant the next small favor asked of her.

Beyond the story, we do the same thing as Michelle did all the time, a friend asks us for a favor, and we're hanging out with poeple, watching TV, doing homework, napping, mostly things that could be done later and we refuse to help that said friend. Mostly because it is an inconvienance of some sort. The favors we are asked of on a regular basis, a ride to someplace, a place to crash, or maybe just a listening ear, all could be an inconvience...but does that mean that we shouldn't grant these favors? No, in most cases granting these favors involves nothing more than rearranging our schedules and opening up a time slot, maybe twenty minutes to hear a friend rant about her awful suite mates, or forty minutes at the store and back with a friend, or thirty minutes picking up a friend and letting them crash on the couch for the night.

So grant the small favors we're asked of, cause there is no reason not to grant these favors, not really anyway.

Sorry if this is rambly. If its not clear let me know, but other than that, I'm out.

love,
Allie

Uhhhh Brandon has ovaries?

Allie: Do me a favor, don't let me have 18 kids.
Brandon: Dear Lord, please no.
Allie: At number two, kayla is cutting out my uterus.
Brandon: haha Good call, then Imma bury it, so you don't get any ideas.
Allie: Yes! Kayla will cut out the ovaries too.
Brandon: Yay! No ovaries! Tell her to get mine!
Allie: Uh..Brandon...about your ovaries.....
Brandon: Haha what? I have ovaries and a uterus too....I'm unique.
Allie: Ok so I'm assuming
that you are indeed a boy. Being a boy means you have a penis....And having a penis normally means that you don't have overies, uteri, or any other female genitals.
Brandon: Well I am a boy.

a thousand times I've failed

I'm home. Semester is over and I need to do class evaluation things before I can see my final grades..I'll get around to it.

Something I've learned recently is the power of accountability. I have a friend who is a mentor, big brother, accountability partner, whatever. Before I left for college, I gave him permission to call me out, reel me back in, when I'm about to do something stupid, or when I've already done something stupid. It's a two way street though. Because of some things this week, accountability has been practiced. And I guess the point of this vague paragraph is that accountability is important, and I encourage everyone to seek out accountability from someone. It might seem really weird, but when the right person is, for lack of a better word, policing, your actions, it feels safe, really safe. I know that not just anyone can do this, they have to jive with your personality and belief system.

I have more to say, but I'm going to bed now....cause its 3:37 am.

Love,
Allie

What would you grab?

If your house were burning down, what one thing would you grab?

Really what would you grab, not including pets or people? I know this is really cliche and kind of unplauseable, but. This question was posed to me last night and my first reaction was my laptop, cause it's the most expensive thing I own. But then Brandon made the comment in reference to his answer that nothing he had was irreplaceable.

So I really don't know what I'd grab. I mean I have a lot of stuff, a lot of nice stuff. But none of it is irreplaceable. So maybe I'd grab the jewelry my grandma gave me. I know that the jewelry could be replaced, but at the same time.... Or the picture of grandpa Pete on my wall.

Other than that I had a revelation last night. I was thinking about some stuff and just questioning I guess. So I picked up book to clear my mind or whatever, the book happened to be Lifestories by Mark Hall...aka Casting Crowns. I read the line" God, I don't need to know why. I just know that I love You and I trust You." And that hit me like a ton of bricks.

Shortly before I read that line I got a text that said "I think it's different reasons, besides it being a loaded question that I don't know the answer to, I do know that God is there." I guess I has forgotten that I don't know the big picture, and that God does. He's in control for a reason.


I gotta go eat.

Allie

But whatever.. This week was a really big week for a lot of reasons.

Boobies and Voting

Uhm... so. Why do boys like boobs? I mean they are just bags of fat hanging from my chest. I really don't know why boys like boobs.


So vote today cause...well its' important. I voted....a few days ago. I wanna comment on a facebook status I saw today. "Amy is VOTING LIFE! "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves" proverbs 31:8" Imma guess that means she is voting McCain? I don't see how the legal status of abortion will be settled in the next four years, and as far as I'm concerned it shouldn't be changed. I think that there are more important things to base my vote on than abortion, like the economy, or the war in iraq.

Allie

" Taking this picture, I fully realized....I'm going to marry you"

Stufff

Hey kids. It's me.

So I'm terribly sorry I've been gone this week. I effed up my right wrist somehow, so I need to chill out on the blogging. But I'm going to the doctor on Monday about it. I'll keep you crazy kids posted on the status of my wrist.

But there is something I wanted to post. Something that came to me as a result of Recovery Buddies.

It is commonly agreed among the eating disorder communities that the face of eating disorders is distorted. I agree with this. Too many people don't have even basic understanding of eating disorders, or think that someone has to be emaciated. If that is the face of Eating Disorders, then we, The eating disorder community needs to be the face of change. We need to be change we want to see in eating disorder awareness. In order to be that, it means that eating disorder survivors need to go public with their stories. And to be proud of what they have overcome.

Love,
Allie

So......Whats with my bathroom?

So I'm at home...and I couldn't help but notice that there are 4 scrubbies in the bathroom...and 7 tooth brushes. Now remember that we are a 3 person household. I'm off at college most of the time. So at most two poeple use the downstairs bathroom. Yeah...I'm kinda confused.

EDIT: One of the tooth brushes in the cup does belong to Dani. The other three...we aren't so sure of .

The science behind homosexuality.......

...Scares me shitless.

There is a lot of talk about the "gay" gene, and about heredity, and nuture, and all the different thoeries, most of which I don't care about.

Let's work with the theory of genetics. In the 50's and 60's homosexuality was treated as a mental illness and treated with pills and electroshock therapy...uhm yeah sounds painful. So fast-forward to when and if scientists can isolate the gay gene. They will be able to tell prenatal what children will be gay and what children will be straight. Will homosexuality be treated as a genetic defect? Thats one of my fears. You can be blind and deaf and still understand the "coming out" can be a very traumatic thing to do. Will genetic testing of the gay gene push poeple to come out before they are ready?

Ok so....Not that the science really matters...All that matters is that LGBT issues are here now, and we as a society need to deal with them now.

Love,
Me

To those who have been there:

To those of you who were there for me...when it wasn't easy:

Thank you. Thank you for your words. Because you were there for me then, I can be a source of support for others now. I'm so thankful for you crazy kids, cause you had to be at least somewhat crazy to say and do what you did when you did. I love you. And am so thankful you were placed in my life when you were. You will never fully know the impact you made.

Christian...and Religous.

I really hate the terms "Christian" and "Religious",for the same reasons. First I want all of my readers to do my a favor....Next time any of my amazing readers are in a christian bookstore/ coffee shop, just look around and soak in all the religious crap... t-shirts and rings and music and all kinds of garbage.

I don't want to just be "Christian." I want a relationship. I don't want to be religious. Religious to me, suggests that one just follows the rules. There is more to Jesus that following the rules.

So I believe in Jesus. I try my best to follow Him.

Stolen from my Aunt Mindy...again

So I am stealing this from my Aunt Mindy again.....


OCTOBER is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic Violence can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner.
Abuse is physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that frighten, intimidate, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, injure, or wound someone.
Domestic Violence can happen to anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender.
Domestic Violence affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels.
Often - Violence is happening in a home where you least expect it... it is generally the victims pattern to 'hide' the fact that abuse is occurring... Don't close your eyes to abuse - stay aware and offer help. If you are in an abusive relationship - Save your life - and GET OUT...
if you know someone in an abusive relationship - encourage her/him to get help and to GET OUT! Help is available...TOGETHER we can END the LEGACY of ABUSE!!!
BREAK THE SILENCE - MAKE THE CALL! 1-800-799-SAFE (7233)
THE NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE http://ndvh.org/
  • 1 out of 3 women ... in all of the world have been victims of Domestic Violence
  • At least 3 women are murdered everyday by their partners
  • 75% of those murders, occur in the home

  • Violence against women costs companies approx. $75 million a year in lost productivity

Domestic violence awareness month

So october is domestic violence abuse month, so I think I'm just going to quote my aunts post about the topic.
I have been a strong supporter of Victims of Domestic Abuse for several years - I have lived abuse and I've loved other victims who have lived domestic abuse... and in honor of my friend, Lisa Mora - who died at the hands of her abusive husband one - and in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness - this blog a simple focus of my favorite references and websites that support victims of domestic abuse.

I encourage any person involved in an abusive situation to GET OUT - GET HELP! There IS life after abuse. You can be peaceful and happy!


National Domestic Violence Hotline
1-800-799-SAFE
This website - and this telephone number can direct you to your local agencies that support victims of domestic violence.

National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
This is another National organization that offers a lot of valuable information - and support.


3. "The Verbally Abusive Relationship"
Patricia Evans
Patricia Evans has several books on Verbal Abuse - Domestic violence usually begins with Verbal abuse, but ends in more physical violence. A search on Amazon or at your public library on"Domestic Abuse" will direct you to many good resources.


4. "Life Strategies"
Dr. Phil McGraw
While this book isn't directly written for survivors of domestic violence - it was many of these 'Life Strategies' that helped me find my own way out of my own domestic abuse. Dr. Phil's "Life Laws" teach you principles necessary for being treated with dignity and respect.


5. Dr. Irene's Verbal Abuse Website
This site is created, owned, operated, and funded by Dr. Irene Matiatos. I believe the site has been up and running since at least 1996 - and during the worst of my roller coaster, this website gave me an avenue to voice my pain. I had personal correspondence with Dr. Irene - before and after I divorced - and her support was so eye opening and valuable to me.


PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN DO TO END THE LEGACY OF ABUSE...!!!!!!!!!

Dorm funnies....

Ok so on campus we have pet names for the dorms. For example my dorm, Vanderburgh is refered to as the prison by some for a couple of reasons. A) the number of doors we have to unlock to get into our rooms. and B) how freaking militaint Vandy Staff are about checking boys in and getting them checked out by midnight during the week. And if you lose the card you get when you check someone in, then you lose visitation for two weeks in all dorms.

Morris is the Motel 6, cause its the shabbiest dorm on campus.

Clark is the Hilton cause it was just renovated.

I heard a story today about a tour guide that was giving the tour and used the terms to describe the dorms. Hahaha. It made me giggle. I giggled lots. haha.

Guys, It's a matter of Pride....

So I just completed the tube race, which for those of you that don't know the tube race is like a mile stretch down the Wabash river, on tubes tied together. It was super cool. I was with the gay-straight alliance/Pride group. It was actually the first year that the the GSA group has ever had a float in in the race, which makes us even more awesome. We finished like second to last, but we just don't care because we had a blast. And we are damn proud of our second to last place...well it might be last. I have a couple funnies for you actually.

We all were in downtown Vincennes and I heard Tylor say " Ok guys gather around James." He was changing and we were shielding the rest of the town from seeing James' junk. It's what friends do I guess.

OK so I am going to finish up this post for I want to hit the mini street fair going down downtown, and I need to get dressed for that.

Uhhhh Awkward...So

So ten minutes ago, not even that. I'm in my dorm room chilling out, in a towel. And my roommates friend, and her friends dad walks in. And here I am thinking " oh shit....what happens now". Cause Veronica is still moving in so I didn't know if he was planning on sticking around...or what. Yeah it was awkward.

Haha...fuunny

The other day I was walking back to my dorm and this kid stopped me and asked if i had a lighter...and he was coughing and just sounded ill-like. I said that I didn't smoke...and he proceeded to say while hacking up a lung..." that sucks." Really I don't think it's too bad.

Post Secret Sundays


"I can't believe how many poeple have the same secrets as me!"

Retreat.

So this weekend I went on a retreat with the campus ministries…and it was ok. It was all about politics and the election and stuff. The very last session was all about preserving the one man one woman family, ending abortion, and resisting contraceptives. Which really rubbed me the wrong way, for a lot of reasons.

I’ll start with abortion. As I have said before, I don’t think I would choose abortion, however until I have been in a situation where I found myself with an unplanned/unwanted pregnancy. I cannot judge what I would do. And because I can’t judge what I would do in that event, I can’t judge those who choose to get abortions. ‘

Same sex marriage….Ten percent of the population is gay/lesbian. I don’t see how ten percent of the population can be denied the right to get married in wedded bliss, just because they have a different sexual preference. And I know the people I spend my Thursday nights with would agree with me. For those of you that don’t know Thursday nights is the Pride/GSA meeting.

Contraceptive….Uhhh so what’s so wrong about preventing a pregnancy you don’t want in the first place? Clearly if you want kids, you aren’t on the pill/using condoms. Yeah yeah yeah I know in theory it messes with God’s will and what not. But I think that if God really wants to you have a baby, then he’ll bypass whatever contraceptive you use to try and prevent it. Some of my friends were those kinda babies.

The first speaker reminded me a whole lot of a bad lecture, in which nothing he talked about really connected. It was crazy long too. But the second speaker, a catholic, was much better. He moved around and got some audience involvement. Even if he was talking about hot button issues, on which I held a very different opinion than most of the room about

However the entire weekend was made worth it at the campfire. There is so much to be said for sitting around campfire singing worship songs. Mmmmm. And there were smores…..mmm smores. I had forgotten how awesome unaided, just a guitar and a djembe worship can be. We did that at camp. It makes me sad I had already forgotten.

I miss camp. I really miss it. I really wish I could go back in the role of a camper again. The next time I go back I’ll b a counselor, I’ll be responsible, for making sure my kids aren’t late to dinner, or to breakfast. Haha, now that is funny. Me, on time…..to anything? I’ll probably be late to my funeral. But that’s not the point. I spent tenish summers at camp and loved every single one. I guess I’ll always be a camp kid at heart.

In other news I am signed for the Vincennes University tube race down the Wabash river on family weekend, September 20th. It’ll be gross, cold, wet and dirty…But awesome. Haha. There is a possibility of shirtless boys, which is always a plus. Mmmm shirtless boys. But only if they have attractive abs and if they don’t, I’ll just pretend that they do.

Saturday, September 13, 2008

soooo uhhh....gimme a title.

So it's been a while since a real update.

College is good. My roommate is moving out on Monday which means I may be roommateless for up to 2 weeks. So that is cool.

At this very second I am on a retreat with the campus fellowship group thingy, and I'll withhold judgment til tomorrow. However.....It's about being a christian and your civic responsibility...aka voting. Ummm yeah. Take it how you will.

I'm about to go to bed....but I'll catch you on the flipside kids......

And you know that you're welcome to stay

Every day has a sunrise

"I think that we're all mentally ill: those of us outside the asylums only hide it a little better"
We had a discussion about stephen king and horror movies today in class. From horror movies we jumped to serial killers, then from serial killers to porn. This is one of the boys opinions on nudie bars.

I finished one christmas present today. I have started a wall of Christmas gifts. Only twenty more gifts to go. If you get a gift from me. You'd better be super thankful.

Chrissy Briles

I don't think I have talked about Chrissy in here yet. Chrissy is a 5th grader back home in Marion. In the spring she went to the hospital because she had an infection or something( if this is wrong please correct me). She is going home this week, to pass away at home. Pray for this family, as they surely need it. The link to the families blog is here.

Sex God- Rob Bell

I just finished Sex God by Rob Bell, who I think is a genius. And I have tabbed sections in the book I really liked so I can find them again and share them with you. And I'm going to give you a section found on page 98.

"Love is handing your heart to someone and taking the risk that they will hand it back because they don't want it. That's why it is such a crushing ache on the inside. We gave away part of ourselves and it wasn't wanted.

Love is giving away of power. When we love, we give the other person the power in the relationship. They can do what they choose. They can do what they like with our love. They can reject it, they can accept it, they can step toward us in gratitude and appreciation.

Love is a giving away. When we love we put ourselves out there. We expose ourselves, we allow ourselves to be vulnerable.

Love is giving up control. It's surrendering the desire to control the other person. The two- love and controlling power over the other person- are mutually exclusive. If we are serious about loving someone, we have to surrender all the desires within us to manipulate the relationship."



Ok kids that's it for now. I just felt like I should share that with you. I'm sure there will be more from Sex God posted up here.

Love,
Allie

I'm glad I never lived next to the water....

Busy busy busy me. Where do I start?

I got my tickets to the Jon Mclaughlin concert on the 20th. Second row bitches. Seriously kids, I'm going to marry him one day, he just doesn't know it. I think we'd have attractive children.

Today walked to the public library. And got some books. Then walked to main street. I found my way into this little gift shop. Then I walked back to the dorm. All and all I think it was like 40 blocks. And I didn't get lost.

Hmmm. What else is new. hmmm. I am crazy tired right now. So imma call myself done for now.

Love of the unconditional kind.

Tonight during the service I was just at the pastor was talking about gifts, the ones that come out of the blue, like right in between Christmas and your birthday. Those kind we are always wary to accept, for fear of what you might have missed to cause the other person to give you the gift in the first place. He talked about the greatest of all the gifts you can be given is unconditional love.

Now I'm am super blessed to have any amazing friend who I can tell anything to. We're totally open, about everything. Our friendship is unconditional. And I am so blessed to have that. I am so freaking thankful for that friendship.

That's just a little side note. I encourage all of you to seek out who you have unconditional love with and to invest in that relationship.

I love you,
Allie

You're a star falling out of my skys...

So I was just at the midweek worship service and the sermon was about gifts and accepting the greatest gift of all, a gift that is sometimes just so hard to accept. The gift of unconditional love from God, or even friends and family. And the preacher hit on how blessed people that have the gift of unconditional love between friends.
And I have a friend whom, we are super tight. He knows more about me than any other person. We have a good heart to heart conversation about once a week, and then midweek if needed. I so look forward to our weekly conversation. I know I can tell this guy anything, no fear of judgement, or disownment. I hope he feels the same about me. He knows more about me than any other person. I am more honest with him than any other person, ever.

The top things I am glad I brought with me...

So the top things I'm glad I brought to college with m:
My Chacos- The two days I've been here, that I didn't wear my chacos. My feet were killing me.
My iPod case-This is such a great case. Right now I have two. I prefer my old one, just cause it's a bit more broken in. I can't count the times I've dropped my ipod on unforgiving concrete, or hard tile floors. But with the case. It doesn't matter.
My Nalgene bottle- just a durable bottle. Does the job well.

Thats about it for now.
Bye kids.

Uhhhhhhh!?

Afraid the dam will be to annoying to use? There are some steps you can take to free your hands during oral sex. One reader said she uses scissors and a sews a dam into a pair of panties to create a dental dam holder. Any materials you use should be washable and have no sharp edges.


I stole this paragraph from this article.

But it is talking about dental dams, used for oral sex. And i just have to comment on the last sentence of that paragragh. Like you'd use something with sharp edges on/near your vulva.....Uh I wouldn't.

Anyway, thats it for now,

Come heal our land
Breath life into these dry and thirsty souls

Forgive our sin
And as we call on your name
Would you make this a place
For your glory to dwell

Open the blind eyes
Unlock the deaf ears
Come to your people
As we draw near
Hear us from heaven
Touch our generation
We are your people
Crying out in desperation

Hear us from heaven,
Hear us from heaven,
Hear us from heaven,
Hear us from heaven,
Hear us from heaven,
Hear us from heaven,
Hear us from heaven,

We sang this song tonight at the worship set for VUCM. And I just love it and I think most of my readers will too. :)

Love,
Me

Ahh thank god for milkcrates.

So have a few funnies from my english class.

"You know that four letter "F" word, and not fourty or fifty. Yeah, that's a fun word. That'd be a good word to do for your definition paper."- Mrs. Maple

"No, I'm Bogarting the fan. If you want a fan bring your own damn fan." Mrs. Maple

"Dell personal home computers are still an impractical purchase for many people who use computers today"-someones homework.

Now I personally think that most windows machines are an impractical purchase for many poeple. Cause they suck.

After English today I went to the nurse to get a couple vaccines. Then I ate lunch. Then I ran back to my dorm and dropped off my books. Walked to dollar general bought milk crates, and Reorganized my desk. And here is the end result.


Yep. Five milk crates.

" I was the last person to realize how fabulously homosexual I am."

I can think of a few poeple this will be.

Yep

So today I went to the Campus Library and decided that it’s selection of fiction books sucked, so I googled directions to the public library and walked there and got my a library card and a book. And I am super proud of myself cause I didn’t get lost on my way there, and could get myself there again. YAY ME! You just take College Ave, to 7th street and follow it to 7th and Seminary St. YAY!

In other news I am actually doing laundry as I write this. Just finished all of my Speech reading go me. The pain in my side randomly comes back for those of you that care about it. But Motrin takes care of it .

And I'm ready to explode with how bad I want you back home.

You belong to Me
Grey Holiday

You run
, you hide
As tears fall from your eyes
They fall like snow
From a wounded soul
You hold inside
The hurt of great divide
The hole is starting to get old

So come back to the light
To the love, you will find
It’s been here all along
So come back to the start
And you’ll find in your heart
That you always belonged
To me

Just take the rope
I won’t let it go
Give in
We can start again
I’m life, I’m hope
And I’m ready to explode
With how bad I want you back home



You’re my daughter, you’re my son
You’re the one I long to love
And you’ve heard I chose to die
Do you know you’re the reason why?

Funnies.

So two nights ago. My roomie is on the phone and I'm asleep in my bed. I sit up, with my eyes still closed, and look at her. She then apologizes for waking me up. The next time she looks over at me, I'm laying back down. And I have no recollection of this. But it's funny.

In other news, I don't have a collapsed lung. Two nights ago I also had this intense pain in my side. I woke up with it. So I went to the nurse, who told me that it could be anything from a collapsed lung to a sprain. So I went to a doctor, and it's not a collapsed lung yay! Granted he isn't sure what exactly it is, but Ibuprofen will fix me.

YAY!

K I'm for now. I'm unsure what the rest of my day holds, but I'll find out.
Love,
Allie

You belong to me.

You Belong to Me

You run, you hide

It’s been here all along
So come back to the start
And you’ll find in your heart

You’re my daughter, you’re my son
You’re the one I long to love
And you’ve heard I chose to die
Do you know you’re the reason why?

Life on the fourth floor and then some.

So I am on the fourth floor of my dorm. And thank God we have elevators. But to get into my dorm is a task worth noting. I walk in the front door. I unlock the door to the elevator, or the to the stairs. I get myself up to the fourth floor. I then unlock a door to get into my unit (consists of two wings) of the fourth floor. After I do that I unlock my wing door. Then I get to unlock my dorm door.

And for the record Vincennes, Indiana has the most trains per capita. If you leave town for any reason, you hit trains. Its the only place in the US that you can use a train stop as a make out sessions.

Love,
Me

I"M HERE!!

And I have pictures.

This is our bathroom. Be jealous all you silly IWU kids who don't have a tub.

This is our room. The wall that the beds are against the outlets don't work against that wall. but we're working on that.

This is my bed. And yes I did make it right before I took the picture.

This is my desk and drawers. Yep mine. I don't share with anyone.

This is the dresser I brought and our mini-fridge. Note the mess of cords on top of the fridge.

And this is is MY closet. All mine. haha.

My roommate's name is Angel and is pretty much like me. Chill, fun, random. In other words we're cool. My suitemates are nice and we are going into town today to get some stuff for the bathroom. Our outlets are getting fixed. And it's all good in the hood :). K I have to go buy books.

Love,
Me

EEP!

I leave tomorrow morning. EPPA! I scurred. Part of me is so not ready to leave home, to leave my bedroom, and my stereo system and my kitty and my life. But the other part is so ready to leave this town and trade it in for another smaller town.

To the poeple in my life who have been my rocks you know who you are:
Keep your phone lines open, for I know I will be depending on you now more than ever. Be ready for my texts, and phone calls, and emails, and facebook messages. Keep loving me and praying for me like I know you do already. I love you all of you. In the same way that you'll be keeping your phone lines open, I'll keep mine open.

I know I'm going where I'm meant to go for now. And I know that I'll be fine.

OK thats it for now. Cramps are attacking me.
Love,
Me

PostSecret?


"I knit baby sweaters while watching porn."

So I feel this should be talked about. Not gonna lie, I think this is hysterical. I also think it speaks pretty strongly to the quality of this persons porn that instead of doing....well other things, that while watching porn they are knitting. I once heard on Oprah that if you spend more than five minutes watching porn and you aren't otherwise busy, you need new porn. So maybe this person should get some new porn.
