I’m moving to Chicago in a week.
I’m basically going to be living in Chicago for the summer. Still not sure if I’m going to stay there or come back to Spain, all depending on what would be cheaper.
What’s been worrying me is how am I going to make friends? Where does one make friends? Where does one find people to date? What are some cool organizations where I can attend meetings and start organizing again? So many questions!!
Does anyone want to donate research papers on how democracy is flawed and on the creation of a central global government?
I need to turn in 2 research papers in 3 days. I haven’t started any of them. My professor doesn’t even read them. I have to dedicate my time to studyingggg.
I wonder what would happen if I desexualize my life. I feel like it’s a bit hypersexualized… is that a word in the English language? Like what would happen if I become a little bit more conservative with my sexuality. For example, unfollow porn blogs on tumblr (lol), delete gay apps on phone, not talk about sex so openly, and not look at pictures of hot men only covering their dicks hahaha.
Would that be repressing myself sexually??? Probably. I don’t know, I think I have too much of that catholic guilt thing in me??? But I feel like so much sex in my life is kinda gross??? Like I get tired of it sometimes. MAYBE CUZ I DON’T GET ANY?
Many forms of partner abuse spill over onto the children, but some are hard to put a name to. What do you call it when a man, furious at his wife, peels out of the driveway in the family car, so that the mother has to drag her three children across town on a hot bus to their doctor’s appointment? What label do we use when children develop a strong attachment to their mother’s best friend, who is like an aunt to them, and the father abruptly decrees one day that she is no longer allowed in the house because he does not like her, so the children cannot see her? What do we say of the impact on children when a mother gets the news that she is pregnant with a fourth child, her second unwanted pregnancy, because her partner refuses to use birth control and won’t take no for an answer when he wants sex?
If children don’t see or hear the abusive man’s mistreatment of their mother, they feel the aftershocks. They see her pain, they feel her withdrawal, they hear whisperings among their older siblings about what happened."
