My slippers keep me sane… sounds really weird… I have a memory of when I bought them… they were £10 from Primark and I thought to myself that I was spending needlessly and I shouldn’t be doing it. But then I took them to uni and wore them constantly. When I got pregnant I came back home and wore them constantly. And now, when I get up multiple times over night in my freezing flat to go to my crying baby, I put them on and at least my feet are cozy. Yes. I feel very sentimental about a pair of slippers. I thought I’d ruined them the other day and could have cried. I tried explaining to my Mum how important they are to me and she really didn’t seem to understand. If I don’t know where they are I feel distressed. Actually I wonder how much of this is down to my OCD. Oh well. I’ll probably keep them forever and repair them over and over.

you know whats gross
that people w penises are generally v v educated about their bodies as kids like they know exactly whats gonna happen
but like for me i had no idea what vaginal discharge was and when i started getting it in 5th grade i was fucking petrified and i hear so many stories about little girls thinking that theyre dying because no one told them what a period was
idk thats just really fucking shitty that female anatomy is so taboo that we cant even properly educate kids
When my Mum was a kid she was on a school trip and one of her friends locked herself in a toilet because her period started and she had no idea what it was and she thought she was dying. I’m glad that by the time mine came I was living in a time when sex education was mandatory and I was expecting it to come one day. However they definitely should have taught us that girls have wet dreams too. Why not mention that? Just because we don’t wake up in a pool of semen doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter.

#wish I could write the sex education curriculum #female wet dreams and consent would be in there
Ugh, a ton of bills came out this month that I wasn’t expecting so now I have £-70 in my bank account. I went and turned the heating off. I hope the bank doesn’t fine me. :( ugh.
