“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening[…]Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.” — Alice Walker

I have a Nursing blog
Speaking of learning how to budget
I have NO money in my checking account now. I guess I scheduled too many payments and now I’m about to have a negative balance. I don’t get paid again until Friday. I’m supposed to hang out with my cousin tomorrow and I don’t wanna cancel so of course we’re gonna spend money and clearly I’m gonna have to charge it.
I wanna save money but I wanna have a SOCIAL life, too. What the fuck
Thank you anon! I appreciate your honesty and I’m so glad that I help you!
My nursing blog is basically on a hiatus until I get a job because now I legit have nothing to talk about lol
Sometimes the most productive thing that you do all day is wash your hair and change your fish tank. And sometimes that has to be enough.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.
As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”"
