How Do We Define Virginity?

Walking to my grandmother’s house from high school one day, my friend asked an odd question. “So, if it goes in but he takes it out before anything comes out, are you still a virgin?”

“No,” I said. “I don’t think that’s how it works.”

“Oh,” my friend said, pausing. “Well, guess what!?”

Ramblings of a Tortured Soul

Today’s poem is kind of odd in that it’s not a poem. I know many of these seem to be rambles, but this really is one. This is one of those pages I turn and see the real darkness I struggled with as a child. Sometimes, I feel guilty for saying I suffered depression. There are so many in the world who suffer more than I ever have. Yet, I felt this gloomy pressure penetrate my every thought. The following words were written in the middle of that dark place.

BLOGERVER

I am tickled with my new blog headers! Don’t they look amazing? I went back to my top post from August and gave them one of these headers so I could put their little photo off to the side here. Even thought I did my research in creative commons usage for these photos, using them makes me nervous. Have I mentioned my master plan to use the abysmal amount of funds from this blog to purchase a Shutterstock account? Then I can be 999.9% sure I’m not breaking any laws (I’m 99.2% sure right now).  Continue reading
