For the Baltimore Sun Mobbies awards this year, the theme is the '90s. Although I’m still a little in shock that the grunge decade ended almost over 15 years ago, The Sun prompted us to reflect on what we miss the most from those 10 years. For me, food or toys are not what I remember most about that time, but rather how I communicated with friends. It is so easy to just send a text or email now that we tend to lose sight of what truly bonds us together. I can keep up with what is going on with friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media, but those mediums don’t really allow for full relationship building. Sometimes, you want to share more than what you had for lunch or the concert you attended last night. Sometimes, you long for sharing your deep thoughts, your feelings, and what you need. Therefore, what I would like to bring back are written notes.

I follow lots of blogs that do giveaways in appreciation of their loyal readers and I always think to myself, "I should really do something like that!" I appreciate all of the support I get from all of my readers and I thank them all the time. But, I wanted to do more, I just didn't know what I could do. This blog has changed gears a few times, but I finally feel like it is in a place that I really enjoy. Not only sharing my own experiences, but also promoting body positivity and sex positive actions. Although I believe beauty on the inside always shows on the outside, there are times that we also want to take care of the outside. I also believe sex positive is about the "whole person" so if we have physical things we want to "fix" or "change", that isn't necessarily wrong. It is only "wrong" to belive that they will prevent you from having the sex and love you truly deserve. So, what is my point here?

I normally don't talk a lot about my job, mainly because I worry to keep myself anonymous (or at least confidential) as my day job would probably not appreciate the topics I discuss here. But today, I have to get this off my chest. I believe there is one in every workplace. The person who is oblivious to what his/her job really is and some how manages to shirk any responsibility and pass the buck so to speak. There is someone who manages to defy any of my sensibilities as my company is usually pretty intolerant for that kind of behavior. But somehow she continues to keep her job! Today, was no different, but it was absolutely pathetic. Here is how the email exchange went down (names & topics changed to protect my day job, of course).

As Molly says, Sinful Sunday is all about the image. Most any given night, if you were ask about my after work attire, I can probably 99% of the time guarantee I am wearing a v-neck tshirt and boy short panties. It a comfort and has been a routine for me for a long time. I walk in the house, off go the pants, off goes the bra, slide into the outfit. And that is what I usually sleep in as well, since I have no one to impress in the bedroom with any enticing lingerie. I honestly don't even own much of it anymore anyway. But sometimes, you just want to feel a little girly; A little pretty, even if no one else will see you.

Music is the center of my soul. As I have posted previously and had a guest post about how music and sex can really bring things together, I will always submerge myself in the music scene. One of my favorite things is listening to music on vinyl. Lying on my bedroom floor, playing albums, being a teenager, helped me to develop an appreciation of lyrics and emotions. This post celebrates some of my favorite vinyl possessions.

My friend got last minute tickets to the Sillopanna music festival and asked me and my other good friend if we wanted to go. I had never heard of it, but being a music freak, the opportunity to attend an all-day, outdoor, summer music festival is something I would rarely say no to. It was pretty hot, but it was in this really neat open area. Food trucks provided some great food and there were a lot of different varieties of things to drink if you wandered around enough.
