TODD ADKIN.

Stop. Google “Todd Adkin”

Few Questions:

(1) Are there any women in Todd Akin’s life? (2) Did he pass 7th grade health? (3) Does he have a vagina that I don’t know about? (4) If “legit” rape is a thing, what is illegitimate rape? Last I checked, there weren’t different shades of Sexual Assault.

That is all.

 

“I know now that every s…

I know now that every second of every moment of every day is a gift and you should live your life accordingly. I’ve learned to always say ‘thank you’ and ‘forgive me.’ Those are the two most important things. Thank you for everything and forgive me for everything. That’s how I live my life.

Post-College Life…

….Or as I like to call it,”Explore unique Hobbies” time!

DO THIS: (1) drink cranberry juice with whipped cream and Oreo crumbs sprinkled on top*

(2) Watch “The Big Comfy Couch” in the dark at 2:00 am

(3) Prepare to feel like a CHAMPION.

Should I be worried or proud that Microsoft Paint is the second most opened software on my computer?

*Drink with your pinky raised. It won’t work if your pinky is not raised. trust me.

Seriously though. waiting sucks. I have SO much time until my *departure* date (Peace Corps). I think the antsy-ness I’m feeling is making me a little bit cray-cray. So, I’m going to fill in that time by volunteering, learning to play the ukulele (two years after I bought the uke), and applying to a sh*t ton of paid AND unpaid internships, cause I have standards (HAHA).

Hey! Brown skinned Girl!

Hey! You there with the brown skin! Read this article:

I know that some Professionals recommend getting a yearly mammogram at 40 plus, but as African American Women we are at a higher risk. Do not think that 30 is too young. I’ve known and lost too many people who ignored their bodies and go their mammograms too late.There are unknown reasons as to why Black Women with breast cancer have a higher mortality rate than anyone else, but there are correlations. There are still plenty of studies going on. One thing I think separates us is the lack of information and access. More Black Women receive a diagnosis in the later stages of breast cancer and have a more aggressive form of Breast Cancer.

What about the costs, you ask? There are organizations that offer FREE MAMMOGRAMS all over the U.S.A. For example, the Capital Breast Care Center offers free exams and serves as a great source of information for people with questions in the DMV area. Komen.org is also a great source for people looking for a source for free mammograms. It is better to be informed than uninformed!
