#13ReasonsWhy

Things I wish I had known as a younger girl in the world of sex:

  1. Just because they’re your boyfriend/girlfriend/significant other, doesn’t mean you are obligated to have sex (or do anything) with them.
    It is your choice.
  2. Just because you start an intimate act (oral, sex, foreplay, etc.) doesn’t mean you have to complete it.
    You can change your mind midway, just communicate it to your partner. Let them know (verbal or non-verbal) that things have changed.
  3. Talk to someone about the good and the bad sex.
    Pick a safe person, a judgement free person (i.e. best friend, sister, long distance buddy) to talk it out, air it out and let the sex-stigma go. Also in case something that you’re doing is dangerous or just a little off (and I’m not talking about kinky shit), but if something is off and you’re not sure, that person can help you talk it out.#beagoodhuman

Learning the things #savetheplanet

3 things I’ve learned to save the planet:

1. There’s beeswax wraps for your food instead of foil or plastic wrap. (You can also just put your leftover food in tupperwave or glass in the fridge.)

2. Mason jars are magic.
Apparently if you can bring them into the grocery store, weigh them empty, then add your bulk items and weigh again.
I’m super stoked my local Safeway has been adding bulk items.

3. You can rent an eBook from any library with the OverDrive app. Pretty nifty.
(Secret tip: if you download the book on a device, then turn off the WiFi, the library can’t take it off your device even if the book is due back in. Boom.)
