Anxiety Over Starting a New Job?

Anxiety Over Starting a New Job?

Starting a new job can stir deep feelings of anxiety. I know I was v anxious my first few weeks on the job. I remember the first job I ever had, I was so robotic and stiff because I had such a strong fear of messing up or being incompetent. I would transfer calls and be so afraid of pressing the wrong button. I've learned that it's extremely normal to feel anxious when you start a new job. Here's some things I've learned:

My Friend Was Having Sex All Wrong

My Friend Was Having Sex All Wrong

My friend in high school, let’s call her Lisa, was having sex all wrong. When we were 16, I was a virgin and she was not. I would always ask her tons of questions about sex because I was naturally curious. Did it hurt her first time? What did it feel like? What do you physically do? And I’ll never forget what she told me. She said, “Jasmyn, girls don’t actually enjoy sex.”

When she received criticism for posting it, she fired back saying posting naked selfies made her feel "empowered".

Call Out Sexual Harrassers: Amber Coffman's Courage Should Change How We Handle Sexual Harrassment

It's amazing how ONE tweet can cause a serious chain reaction. Yesterday, I read how musician Amber Coffman's tweets on twitter caused the CEO of a top music PR firm to resign. His name is Heathcliff Berru and the company is called Life or Death PR. She called him out on twitter for sexually harassing her and what spiraled afterward is crazy. Read her tweets for yourself:

Your Greatest Asset Shouldn't Be Your Body

Your Greatest Asset Shouldn't Be Your Body

A few years ago @OfficiallyIce tweeted, "Ladies, in your honest opinion, what do you feel is your greatest asset?" I was curious to see how women responded and you know what I saw in his mentions? Most of them named a part of their body as their greatest asset (of course a part that draws the most male attention). Boobs, Ass, Thighs, Hips.... those were the common responses. I responded by saying my chin was my greatest asset.

5 Signs You're In A Shallow Relationship.

5 Signs You're In A Shallow Relationship.

To go off my previous post here, I talked about how shallow relationships don't last. A shallow relationship is one where there is no real continuity, expectation, or commitments to one another - basically: hooking up. There is no getting to know each other beyond a superficial level and building a deeper connection may not be important if neither person plans on being in it for the long haul.

Hey guys! Being that this is my first post and all, I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Jasmyn and I am the voice behind this blog.
