Abreast of the Situation

I started the puberty process at eight years old. I had my first period at nine. I was in a B-cup bra by the time I was eleven. By the time the rest of my classmates were in training bras, I was a D-cup, and this wasn’t because I was terribly overweight. Here I am…

Truth and Feelings

Well, Ryan Gosling had his second child with Eva Mendez a few weeks ago, so it is pretty safe to say we will never be together. A moment of silence for what could have been…   Now, I know, I know, I’m getting married to someone equally as wonderful as good old RyGos and there…
