I have a physics textbook from before it was discovered that the flow of electrons makes electricity and they just sound so frustrated it’s hilarious
This body positivity/empowerment thing is really working out for me.
Tori is next Sunday :)
I just tried on the outfit I’ll be wearing to the concert.
I look amazing. I never really feel this good, but damn…
Black wrap dress with plunging neckline + push-up bra + cinch waist + heels…
I nixed the garter belt and knee highs that I was originally going to wear because the heels are open-toed and open-heeled and I felt that would look funny, with knee highs.
Other than that though.. That cinch? Holy crap. It is a good thing that I’ll be sporting the nicotine patch as of tomorrow (for good) because I’m going to need all the lung capacity that I can get. Also eating will be interesting.
Its only really bad when I first put it on. I just feel completely constrained, but after I have it on for a few minutes it starts to feel like a second skin - which isn’t too terrible. The act of putting it on and taking it off is quite the struggle, once I get it passed my boobs though, its easier. It sits below the bust line right on the ribs, like right underneath the bra? I can tuck the underwire of my bra into the top of it and then it goes all the way down past my hips.
I was afraid it would ride up so I did jumping jacks to test it. It stays in place perfectly. The reviews said to get a size smaller than your t-shirt size, so I did and it really is a perfect fit.
It does sit like a halter top on the shoulders and due to how constraining it is, if you don’t use proper posture, the shoulders get kind of tired and sore rather quickly. I’ll have to stand up straight anyway lest I pop out of my dress.
With the dress on, it gives me this really nice waist line. My back looks straight which makes my derriere look pretty amazing too.
Without the dress it also looks pretty amazing, like a bustier almost and I look curvy, but put together and with the push-up bra? Damn…
I can’t wait. I’m going to look so nice and feel amazing and sexy and happy.
I got these gorgeous filigree and gem clips to put in my hair - which will be dyed red (normal for me to go red every now and again).
I bought all new makeup, or rather a close friend of mine did for me. Going to do fancy eyes, pink lips, everything subtle except the eyes. I want them to really pop. I do love my eyes. They’re one of my best qualities. I bought this really nice navy, almost black nailpolish with just a hint of glitter. Lastly, marshmallow scented/flavored body glitter. The flavored part will probably be useless unless I start licking myself, but it smells real nice and adds a very subtle shimmer to the skin.
Nice dangley earrings, a couple rings, maybe a bracelet.
Seriously went all out on this.
I’m so extremely excited.
It would be cool if I had someone who I could curl up on the couch with, be held by and watch movies with.
Life can be so disappointing.
Feminist writing continues to be absolutely necessary, but I would argue that Ephron’s essays in I Feel Bad About My Neck are essential feminine writing. Women’s magazines routinely explore these same topics — loving one’s home and traditional domesticity, beauty and aging, empty nest syndrome, personal humiliation — but very rarely with this much self-deprecation, light-touch humor, and relatability.

A lot of soul searching has been done these past couple days while hanging around my father’s hospital bed.
I came to the realization that it is very difficult to end a friendship, but sometimes necessary in order to find happiness again.
I’m not feeling too great…
