Deep Blue Swimsuit

 Oh lord, here we go. The legs are out. I can't breathe and I'm breaking out just typing this post but you know that thing about comfort zones and getting out of them, right? Well, yup, that's what I'm doing here. I've decided to use this platform for good and I deem having a positive outlook on your body and life a good thing. Doing this scares the hell out of me. My legs are my 'problem' area and I've always sought to keep them covered. But the way things have been going in my life right I need something to root me to the present. And nothing does that better than shattering your comfort zone. Maybe I'll get positive feedback, maybe negative, hell no one might even see this but here I am. Your body-pos fairy giving you a healthy dose of thick thigh love.

This salon I'm sitting right now is unnaturally empty and that is making me uncomfortable but not as uncomfortable as showing the (world) me in a (partially ill-fitting albeit gorgeous) swimsuit.
The fringe has got to be my favorite part. It covers some of my tums and provides an interesting design to the top. Want to know what I find funny and disconcerting? I live in a tropical country with beaches undone-able but finding a swimsuit is akin to finding a needle in a needle mountain. Thete is none! Much worst there are no plus size ones! It took me three months to find one that's both cute, affordable and fits. Three months!! *sighs*
Anyway I love it.
My first time wearing a swimsuit and I freaking love it.

Struggles of Being A 20+ Teacher To Precocious Teenagers

Have you ever had the feeling that kids nowadays are so different from when you were growing up?. If you had then you are  a member of the 'nostalgist' club. This is no bad thing but what is bad is how we put our experiences and expectations on a generation that have no idea where we're coming from. I said that because, after being asked for the hundredth time in three weeks if I play games, I've literally grown tired of having to explain how a 20+ English teacher knows the difference between an Xbox and the Nokia game Snake. Now, I've occasionally described myself as a millennial and through this description I have experienced of a lot of the old ways and the 'new'. I've seen the end of a governmental party and the beginning of one. I lived through the aftermath of 9/11 and the war that ensued afterwards. My point is that often times younger people assume because of my age I either don't know or I don't care about what they are experiencing. But I do. Aside from whipping out the old non existent picture book and showing them Miss Robinson isn't really that old, I'm stuck for choices on how to deal with the matter.
