Aggretsuko

As I’m sure many of you do, I tend to struggle to decide what to watch on Netflix. We have a couple things that we watch every night after work; we catch up on Game Grumps, Pet Collective, and Fail Videos on YouTube, and on Monday’s we watch Bob’s Burgers on Hulu. But the other day, we saw an advertisement for Aggretsuko, and I fell in love immediately.

Battling Boy Book One by Paul Pope

First up, can we just appreciate all that alliteration? Okay, thanks. Awhile back, the boy and I went to our friends Marty & Sam’s apartment. There, we had a lovely evening playing Cards Against Humanity and hanging out. Since they know our roommates are leaving soon and we don’t have a ton of stuff, they graciously have us some helpful kitchen items (pie plates, aprons, etc) along with a slew of books. They gave us things that they were planning on donating, so they didn’t take much of a loss because of it. But we grabbed a ton of their stuff because “free books” is my favorite phrase, and I didn’t have my own pie plate. One of the books we got was Battling Boy, and it was the first of the comics from them that we received. I blindly reached into the trunk one night for a book to read, and out it came.

On Moving

Though I want almost nothing to do wth the area I live in, moving out is so terrifying that I’ve yet to do it. Last August, when I was promoted, I had another DS sit me down, and talk to me about how long I wanted to be in the company. She suggested one year, as that’s enough time for a management position to be put on my résumé and have it taken seriously. We went through and budgeted out what I would need if an apartment cost X, with Y and Z as necessities that I would get. Making a budget was calming, but as we get ever closer to August, it weighs heavier on my mind that not only do I not have a place picked out, but that there’s no way for me to move.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

When I was in high school, Fangirls, I loved this book. I remember the discussions we had in our 11th grad AP English class about it, and how we felt about it becoming a reality. When I graduated, I bought it for myself thinking, I’m going to want to reread this someday. Well, that someday was yesterday, and I’m very glad that I did.

This book was written in the 1930’s by Aldous Huxley. They said it was too far ahead of it’s time. They may have been right.

Let’s Talk About: Hook Ups & Casual Sex

Greetings, Fangirls! I’ve wanted to talk about this topic for a while, because it’s certainly something that needs to be talked about. As a 20 year old, talk of casual sex seems to be all around me. Especially with things like Tinder booming in popularity. I love that people are exploring new things & people, and not being afraid to have a lot of sex. But, I do worry that people aren’t going about things in a completely safe & sex positive way.
