I think I passed a certain stage in womanhood today, officially christened. My entire life I've had a difficulty with remembering to bring you know, tampons and such with me. It was actually this huge joke for my mother and I. Every month I'd call her at school and with the most pitiful voice ask if she could bring me some because I forgot to pack an emergency supply. (TMI? Meh, I'm open about this topic so I don't really care, so you shouldn't either.)
She'd always tell me I needed to learn to "be prepared" before I went to college because no one would drive to school and bring me such things. Well, that was false.
Fast forward to college life. At the library. In a white skirt. Stand up to talk to a boy from my apartment building, casually look down and notice blood all over my skirt. He then offered to give me a ride home. On his bike. Because he didn't have a car. It was quite an embarrassing moment, top 10 all time right there. Best part. Didn't have anyyyything on me. AND. I walked to school that day. AND I was in the middle of the library where the closest bathroom was across the SKY-WALK where a thousand people walk every single day.
So after scrunching my skirt up to my butt, and enduring the looks of disgust and condemning (short skirts aren't appropriate at a private church school btw), I called my roommate, who then walked to school to give me tampons and a change of clothes. Guess my Mama was wrong for the first time in her life.
Then my roommate would bring me tamps once a month when I forgot. Then I got married and Josh would run home to grab some while I was working or in class. And if no one could bring me something, I'd ask every girl in sight for one until the least stingy girl in the room forked one over (those things are expensive, so I really don't blame them).
And then today, something magical happened In fact, it was so magical I texted this to my Mom, "MAMA! The most magically thing happened today!! I put tampons in my purse this morning, then I started my period and I was prepared for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. You should be SO proud!!" And I think it was the most proud moment of her life.
I guess I can be considered a responsible woman now. Sha-weeeet!
Oh and hey guess what, I'm going to North Carolina with Josh for his interview :) Freaking pumped out of my mind!
PS please don't judge me, I was always the weak girl who synced up to everyone else. To all you girls out there, you know what that means.
