An Assault to Remember (TW: sexual assault)

TW: sexual assault, physical abuse

 

I'm terrified of dating. 

It used to be kind of fun. During grad school, I pretty much had dinner paid for each night of the week (men are always wanting to invoke the very gendered and ancient "rules" surrounding dinner dates).

Dating has got me tired. Worse, it has hardened me. It has made me jaded and cynical and untrustworthy. 

It has, quite literally, assaulted me.

New Year 2015

I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions--they honestly just give me anxiety, because they never really stick, and when they do, they don't stick forever. Anyways... there are things I'd like to do more of, so that's what this list will be. A "Do More Of These Things Because I Like Them And They Make Me Feel Good" list. Please enjoy--and tell me what's on your "Do More Of These Things Because I Like Them And They Make Me Feel Good" in the comments!
