"Feminism is not about who opens the jar.

It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.

It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.

But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it."

I just need to let you know that Talbots is having an amazing sale right now.

I purchased 2 blouses, a pair of linen pants, two jackets, and a t-shirt with a fish on it for $123 which includes shipping* and taxes.

*I HATE when companies charge shipping. I mean, I get it, but there are a ton who don’t charge and that makes me not understand why anyone even does??

I was watching the news this morning & it (they? Ginger Zee’s weird replacement dude?) mentioned that it snowed 7+ inches in South Dakota yesterday.
My initial reaction was something along the lines of “What the ever-loving hell?! It’s still consistently in the 90s here!”
Then I remembered this picture that I took on September 1st, 2008 on my way back to Lander, Wyoming from visiting twohippiechic in Bozeman. I stopped my car on Togwotee Pass because I just needed to take a picture of legit snow on September 1st. (Also, some people with Alabama plates were stopped as well. We all stared in awe.)

I’m waiting to teach pump and just observing the gym-goers, surpressing my urge to shout “GET SWOLE BRAAHH!!”

Don’t y’all worry

I’ve watched all of the “Shake it Off” parodies/lip syncs that you’ve been posting.

I’m not sure why you think I’m not buying the Britney Spears lingerie.

Not that it really matters, but US News ranked Virginia Tech’s Civil Engineering Department in the top 10 in the country.

(Ranked 71st overall. I’m slightly disappointed with that, but I’ll take it.)
