So, I was watching football, and BOOM, inspiration.

2) I just turned 25.

Guest Blogger – firstand25:Yo Peeps of 25swf!!

(This post is part of an awesome series of awesome 25swf guest bloggers- read about them here!)

When I was first approached to start blogging about my love, sex, and relationship life, I was scared. I don’t think I was scared of people reading about my personal experiences, or judging me, or anything like that, I think I was mostly scared to open myself up to let others in on what happens in my head every single day. I know if you don’t write openly and honestly, then you start to sound boring and rehearsed. Nobody is interested in listening to somebody give the half truth, they want all the raw, dirty details. I have no clear intention in my writing, just mainly thought it would be fun, but maybe the words I write will ring true to somebody reading them, maybe I’ll be able to bring comfort to someone struggling with the same things, or maybe I’ll provide a laugh, and who doesn’t like to laugh?

Anyway, I’m a freedom fighting, feministing, liberal, badass. So if I ever write something you disagree with, good! If you think I’m “totally right on”, great! Let’s fight, sisters!  Let’s fight for what we believe in, let’s fight for what’s right, let’s fight for the greater good, let’s fight for equality, let’s fight for all the little AND big girls out there, let’s fight to fight!!! Now…don’t get me wrong, I’m not a man hater, in fact, I love men, without them, we aren’t here. I’ve met some very caring, compassionate, and loving men in my life, and I LOVE that I know them. I’m a sucker for the nice guy(think Patrick Fugit in Almost Famous). It’s the fact of pinpointing that one best friend to spend the rest of your life with that’s the issue isn’t it?  But for now, let’s not think about this, let us cherish who we are, where we’ve been, the people we’ve met, and where we’re going…we’ll focus on the love and other stuff later on.

In any case, I have zero credentials for writing(except the fact that I’ve been SINGLE for a long time), I generally have terrible grammar, and I’m new to the writing online game, BUT,  I hope you enjoy what I have to say, and thanks for letting me ramble. I look forward to writing more.
