hi tumblies! just wanted to let you all know that i may not be on tumblr for a bit.
on monday night in downtown santa barbara my scooter and i had a run-in with a dodge ram and i ended up in the emergency room. luckily i was able to limp out of there 5 hours later with a few broken metacarpals (right hand), soft tissue injuries and a bad concussion, but its going to be a while til im fully healed. y’all should see the right side of my face right now… i look like the joker from batman ;) (swollen and black and blue cheek with scrapes and cuts making a perfect line to the corner of my mouth. its hilarious. and scary-looking). my face took most of the impact.
send me love and good healing vibes! once some big scrapes on my knee heal up ill be back to experimenting in yoga with my right hand in a cast :)
Annoyed. I knew I should have gone to yoga this morning.
You and me both.
Me too! Although I’m not annoyed yet… I know I will be later today.
"I never change, I simply become more myself."
mama, sister, and I in the runner mix before my hometown’s Turkey Trot! we are of course arriving right on time and as we’re chillin, walking towards the start line we hear “Ready, set, TROT!” and we’re like well fuck and start running but get caught up in the crowd and my dad snaps this photo.
paced with my dad the whole time and ran a 28-minute 5k, which is impressive as I never run anymore. My goal is to run twice a week starting this week! I miss it.
Im female. Do you think it's weird that I think about sex a lot? I can never talk to anyone about it because of the environment I live in. :^/
I’m so sorry that you live in such an environment, AKA MUCH OF SOCIETY.
I don’t think it’s weird. You are human, we are sexual beings. We literally have to be in order to perpetuate the human race. Anyone who knows me knows I think about sex a lot.. I talk about it a lot. It’s like food, you know? One of the many simple pleasures in life <3
BUT IT’S NOT SO SIMPLE IS IT. Sometimes when you are female and are open about your sexuality, people can call you terrible words that don’t even make sense, like slut and loose and easy and a dirty whore. Which is dumb because it doesn’t even work that way. None of it. Those are not even valid terms.
If you are in University/College. I bet you can find sex positive groups on campus. I’m lucky enough to be part of a pretty sex-positive campus. If you are looking for information for which you don’t even need to leave your room, find LACY GREEN on youtube and watch alll the videos. They are a fun time. She is the illest.
So I want you to NEVER FEEL GUILTY ABOUT YOUR SEXUALITY because women are capable of feeling SO MUCH SEXUAL PLEASURE and we absolutely should. And you don’t even need a partner to experience it. But being comfortable with your own body is so so important.
I hope you are able to find someone you can talk to about this. I would love for you to have a satisfying sex life.
If you have specific questions my ask is open and you need not be anon :)
go girl. good response.

I may just transfer to SDSU next year because of the health communication degree AND because flights to Oakland airport are $69.00. SIXTY NINE DOLLARS! That’s how much I’m paying for a train from Oakland to Santa Barbara tomorrow!
My plan definitely was not to go farther South, in fact I’ve been really happy thinking of living in San Francisco next year, but this changes some things… I do like SD.
one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’
no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty
lolz. I only rise from the depths of twitter hell, because I’m so livid.
If you haven’t heard/read about this yet- important shit is happening. The Supreme Court accepted two cases of companies asking for their right to deny their female employees access to 4 specific types of contraceptives- Plan B, Ella (another form of emergency contraceptive), and the two forms of IUD. Their reasoning? Because they believe they may cause abortion (and because lowkey, they believe life begins at conception). I.e. they are people of faith and build and maintain their companies with these values, which is why they should be able to extend this faith into women’s contraceptives. Also, because they think offering 16 other types of contraceptives is fair enough.
The problem with that? Cause oh god, there are many, but one of them- EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTIVES ARE REALLY IMPORTANT. And also, THE IUD IS ONE OF THE SAFEST, MOST EFFECTIVE, AND WITH THE LEAST SIDE EFFECTS SORT OF CONTRACEPTION A WOMAN CAN GET. That LITERALLY affects her quality of life! These companies claim they have great health coverage and really do care about their employee’s health? This literally contradicts that.
If you don’t care about women, you don’t care about life. Think about that.
-also these cases are going against the Affordable Care Act which guaranteed free contraception access to all women. The act that is JUST NOW finally being implemented.
**also, if you watched my hormonal contraceptives video, you learned that the IUD and Plan B do not cause abortion. With the IUD there is speculated to be a less likely chance of a fertilized egg implanting, but that’s not the first course of action with an IUD. And it’s not any course of action with Plan B. If that egg is fertilized already and you take Plan B, you’re proooobably going to get pregnant. Unless you know, your body naturally retracts the extra blood vessels to your uterus and you naturally abort it. WHICH HAPPENS. THAT HAPPENS. NATURALLY. My question for all pro-lifers who truly care about the fertilized eggs? What are you doing about THAT naturally occurring phenomenon? How ya gonna resolve that?
@yogarunmama killin itttt with spaghetti squash and veggie red sauce. Love being home.
foghorn wake up
I saw this on her facebook and I’ve been just creepily waiting for her to post it here so I can reblog it.
Unbelievable photo. fog, cityscape, heart opener, fingers.
Guess what I’m filming an educational video on!
It’s due tomorrow for my biology of human sexuality class; therefore, you all will see it tomorrow :)
