Sometimes, when you go camping, it rains. That's just the way it goes. But you can't let nature get in the way of your trip! Besides, wet camping is a skill in and of itself. And you need to have as many skills as possible in this world that live in. Climate change, refugees, civil unrest, terrorism. Don't think I don't know what's coming! This world has Children of Men written all over it. And I plan to survive beyond that when this world just becomes The Road. I won't let a little rain stop me from living! And, until then, this is just a fun way for me to build up my skills with friends. Let's go!
Were it not for beer, it'd be a lot harder to relax after a long day of dealing with things women are expected to do at work but shouldn't. Sure, I've got the best motivational soccer quotes to remember before a game to energize me on and off the field, but sometimes motivational soccer quotes just aren't enough and it takes a drink for me to howl at the moon like the women who run with the wolves.
I'm always getting breakouts. And what's worse is that I just learned that some drinks are terrible for your epidermis. Good thing I have cardio, and good thing I know the best and worst alcoholic drinks for your skin. I know what drinks to avoid!
I love playing these games with my rec soccer team, which is made up of the most badass, fiercest women I know. Self-care is important; it belongs in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. And this is some of the most fun self-care I get!
GODDAMN THIS WHITE SUPREMACIST PATRIARCHY! But God bless the United States women's national soccer team. They've won three Women's World Cups, including the first one; and four Olympic gold medals (including the gold medal from the first time it was an Olympic event). They're why I still play soccer to this day.
I wasn't 100% on being a mom before I was one. Now that I am one, it's 100% what I want to be. I am fierce. I am a snarling mama bear who will go full savage at a PTA meeting if need be. I keep my kids away from refined sugar, video games, and bad influences; but I worry about other parents and their kids sometimes. I can't raise other people's kids for them and I wouldn't want to, but I do want them to raise their kids exactly how I would. These are the things parents let their kids do that horrify me now that I'm a mom.
