3 Things I Love Today

by - Monday, September 03, 2012

1. Alison Bechdel- the founder of the Bechdel test, and apparently she is turning 50 this week (September 10th). Funny and awesome and smart, and I find it comforting that a badass like her can still say this- "My main fear is being found out to be the idiot that I fear I am." Read her comics, because she truly is the best!

2. Shoulder-length hair- Yep, I am doing that thing that newlyweds do where they instantly need to shed half their hair. I am so ready to cut some of this off!

3. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month! Thanks to my cousin Shelly for bringing this to my attention. I have written quite a bit about her mother Ann and her fight against Ovarian Cancer. She is doing remarkably well, because she is a cancer-beating badass, but Ovarian cancer is one of the toughest to fight, because it is often not detected until it is already in Stage 4. It took a few months from Aunt Ann realizing something was off to finding the tumor, and she was lucky it was mostly centralized. If you are a woman, you need to be aware of the subtle signs of this cancer and be as vigilant as possible about your body.This is really really important. My Aunt is only now turning 50, so don't assume you are too young. Educate yourself!
