Online Quiz Things (October 2014)

October 9, 2014: How did you die in your past life?

How Did You Die In Your Past Life?

OD’d in Woodstock: Your love for music, dancing and just having fun has a very long history. In your past life, you were a music fanatic who went to all the best concerts and clubs. You listened to some of the truly best artists in the history of music (LIVE!) and partied like a king/queen. Then came Woodstock: the nature, the music and the drugs. At least you know better this time around.

Aside from the drugs and the crowds, this totally sounds like me now.

October 10, 2014: What are you most inclined to be addicted to?

What are you most inclined to be addicted to?

Alcohol: The addiction you’re most inclined to have is alcohol!

Don’t Panic! You are an enjoyable person who knows how to have fun! Your friends would say that you’re the life of the party. But there’s a deep side to your personality. You’re empathetic, understanding, and a good listener. Not so bad, eh? The truth is that you’re actually a bit of an introvert that just needs a drink or two to loosen up and be social. But once you loosen up, you’re the best of the best.

Which totally makes sense for a non-drinking, non-partying person. Actually, I had a friend in high school that had this same sort of belief about me needing a drink or two. I’ve never had alcohol, so I wouldn’t know. Also, I think more than just a bit of an introvert. I’m a major introvert.

October 10, 2014: What is the first body part people notice about you?

What is the first body part people notice about you

Bust: Your best and most noticeable feature is your impressive bust! And we all know that it’s one of the most important parts of the body (evolutionary speaking of course). While you certainly have the goods, you manage to show off your body in a classy and sophisticated way.

But they’re not really noticeable. A B-cup on an obese person is not noticeable, except by people who are shocked that they aren’t bigger. Basically, the noticeable-ness of my boobs is that they noticeably lacking in size.

October 12, 2014: Which 90’s TV girl are you?

Which 90's TV girl are you?

Clarissa: Down to earth yet exceedingly nerdy. You are most like Nickelodeon’s Clarissa Darling of Clarissa Explains It All! Clarissa’s adventures began way back in 1991, where she taught the world that A.) Boys will totally watch a show about an awesome girl and B.) Girls can be computer nerds, too! Clarissa designed her own video games as a hobby, and would frequently stump dudes with her knowledge of tech and gaming. She also dealt with everyday problems with finesse and wisdom beyond her years – two qualities we’re willing to guess you possess as well. Wonder what she’d think of today’s video games!?

Sounds like me.

October 18, 2014: Which member of the 27 Club are you?

Which member of the 27 Club are you?

Jean-Michel Basquiat: Your thoughts are never too far away from your art. You are inspired by people on the street, a song on the radio, or a conversation with a friend. Life is complicated but you fall in love with it everyday. You are Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Another one that actually sounds like me.


Disney World Trip: June 16-19, 1990

This is a gallery1 of the pictures that my family took on a vacation to Disney World and Sea World in 1990, when I was six years old. Pictures will be added as I get around to scanning them.2

  1. This means there are a lot of pictures. 

  2. This means that I always procrastinate, so you shouldn’t expect for it to be any different with this. 


Have You Heard The Good News?

Pap smears don’t have to hurt.

Oh my goodness. I didn’t believe my friends when they would say that their Pap smears didn’t hurt. I thought they were lying.1 I honestly thought they were lying or trying to put on a brave face, but, no, it’s possible to have a pain free Pap.

The doctor was really good about the whole thing. He told me before the speculum went in. He and his attending2 also told me before they started on the feeling up3 of the pelvic and boob areas. I think that had more to do with the disclosure of the childhood experiences.

He said my nausea and other monthly issues were due to the PCOS being untreated for so long. So it’s not going untreated. It is being treated with the great and wonderful Depo Provera shot, which having it was the most painful part of today’s visit. My mom has been a bit grumpy that I went on Depo because of the blood clot scare of whenever it was.4 She actually said, “Well, hopefully, it won’t kill you.” She’s such a positive, life-affirming person.

Anyway, I guess that’s all.

  1. Kind of like how I thought people lied when they told me that I was pretty. 

  2. nearly wrote his Autoblow II–thanks, Seth Meyers 

  3. not literally 

  4. 2008, I think? 

Bloody Sunday

Actually, it wasn’t all that bloody. I’ve been using a Softcup for the first time. They aren’t too bad. It’s a little awkward1 getting it in, but they’re much more comfortable than tampons or pass. Also, they don’t cause dryness like tampons, so that’s nice.

What’s odd is that my period seems to be lighter today than it usually is on its second full day. My emotions are completely out of whack. I’m talking full on crying-fests, anxiety attacks, and low self esteem. My energy level has dropped, which is always an issue for me during my period, but feels more pronounced today.2 And I’m always wanting to eat chocolate; more than usual.

  1. and painful 

  2. That might be related to my iron levels dropping. 


An Actual Sex Crime

CBS News had a story on the “leaking” of Snapchat nudes. They brought up Jennifer Lawrence calling her pictures being published a “sex crime”. The last line of the story said that the Snapchat pictures being released would only be “an actual sex crime” if it involved pictures of minors. I don’t know if they were saying that because so many states lack adequate digital privacy laws, or if they feel that unauthorized nude pictures of adults being released is just not that bad. Well, it is bad.

Let’s change the situation from pictures being released to a person outside your bedroom/bathroom window. Instead of having images of you nude on a hard drive, the person is watching you dress, undress, shower, use the toilet, have sex, etc. Laws cover this kind of violation. Laws understand that this kind of voyeurism is a sex crime. So does society.

Well, nude pictures being leaked is the same sort of situation. A person does an act (that is titillating for some) in private, for themselves or another person. They feel safe doing this, so they put themselves in a vulnerable position. If someone takes advantage of them for/while they are doing this, then that is a sex crime.

“An actual sex crime” does not have to involve a person being raped or assaulted. It doesn’t have to be an underage person in a picture to be a crime. It is a crime because it is a violation of someone.
