#18: PIMA Chronicles #14: Really though...

After my very-sad-day getting my IUD removed, I was writing about my experience at Planned Parenthood… trying to sort through a conversation I overheard in the waiting room, while also talking about my new birth control plan… but that post will have to wait until tomorrow. Something else needs to be addressed… and PIMA needs [...]

PIMA Chronicles #13: My Rude Awakening

So it’s been months since my last PIMA entry and that’s because for a while there, my love life was not at all complicated. In fact things were amazing! A guy I dated in my past resurfaced, and I can honestly say he made me the happiest I’ve ever been- mostly because I now know [...]

PIMA Chronicles #12: Best Birth Control Ever!

Imagine. Its you’re first full day in Sierra Leone. You’re laying pool-side. Sun is all around you. Water is glistening in front of you. Adele is soothing your soul, “We could of had it all…” And then… “WAAAAHH!!!” A baby decides to not only shatter the moment, but your entire piece of mind. Now usually, [...]

PIMA Chronicles #11: Crazy Cheap Date!

So I met this gorgeous guy at the grocery story when I was buying rice. He walked up to me, asked me if I was a vegetarian ( I guess because I was buying rice) and told me that he wanted to take me out. We exchanged information and set up a date about two weeks later. [...]

PIMA Chronicles #10: You're Married???

Arrrr! I got my nails done to impress this man… and he’s married??? One would say I should have gotten up right then and there, but the reality of it all took a while to really hit me. First of all, he didn’t come right out and tell me. In fact, we’ve been talking on the [...]

PIMA Chronicles #9: "Summer" Fling or Not

“Are you bringing “Summer” tomorrow?” Summer, is what my girlfriends call the new guy in my life. Why you ask? Because they’re expecting him to just be a summer fling. And they may be right. Now ordinarily (especially after my last non-relationship) I wouldn’t waste time with a guy I wasn’t sure about committing to, [...]

PIMA Chronicles #8: Living the Single Life!

I know it’s been a while, but things have really been quiet on this end. I haven’t had any reason to be extra Pima-ish these days. Which goes to show you that “pains” are caused, not inherent. Remove the cause… you stop the pain. Lately what I’ve been doing is just dating. And honestly I’m [...]

PIMA Chronicles #7: I Think It's Different This Time

It’s funny how… what I couldn’t do in months… he was able to do in an instant… “Do you think we should stop speaking?” He asks. My breath is caught in my throat… Yes– I’m actually finding it hard to breathe. Is this the same guy that calls me back 100 times after I hang [...]
