Dear Asshole,

You are a fucking prick. What happened between us was nobody’s goddamned business but our own. My mistake for thinking you were better than the average loud-mouthed college boy who wants nothing more than a quick roll in the hay. Obviously, I misinterpreted all those times you told me I was different and assured me you’d never do anything to ruin what we have.

You have a girlfriend now? Good. However, if you continue to detail every minute of our sack time with any breathing organism on this campus, know that I will not hesitate to contact her and tell her what kind of texts you’re sending me while under the influence.

You have sisters? Yeah. An older one and a younger one, right? She’s still in high school. Maybe a virgin, like I was. Imagine if she started talking to a guy who deluded her into thinking he wasn’t just using her for sex, and proceeded to tell 1,000 of his closest friends the intricate details of their sex life. I bet you’d have your hands around his throat the first chance you got.

Your blatant lack of respect for women is incomprehensible, and I am nothing short of disgusted by the bullshit that seems to spew out of your mouth endlessly.

Fuck you kindly,

On an Asshole

I’ve never been the kind of person to make mountains out of molehills, but there’s an issue that’s come to my attention and I feel the need to share it with you guys.

Opinions, as always, are welcomed.

If we’re talking and I find out you’re playing me on the side with other women, we are done. I’m gone. I’m out of your life, you’re out of mine. One of my greatest flaws is my irrationality. I have a short-ass temper and I act impulsively when I’m pissed off.

That being said, if you cheat on me, I want you OUT. On EVERY level of my life. Facebook, Twitter… and if I never see your face around campus ever again, it’ll be too soon. Some think this is irrational, but I find it to be an extremely effective personal cleansing process for me. I’m not going to tolerate you blowing up my newsfeed with pictures of you all smiles, arm in arm with the girl you cheated on me with. How the fuck do you get over someone if you’re constantly being reminded of how happy they are without you? This may sound childish and stupid, but then again, so is a man who doesn’t have the balls or mental capacity to treat a woman like a functioning human being with feelings.

So, what do you guys think? Do you delete your exes from your social networks? Or do you leave them to look at your pictures in hopes they see that you can be happy without them? Or is that just a pathetic way of hoping they’ll come crawling back to you?

Is the best revenge really living well?

On exes and Facebook

Anonymous asked: lindsay! i absolutely love your blog to death. you are so intelligent, independent, and overall just a breath of fresh air among a sea of college girls who can't get seem to think for themselves. i was just diagnosed with social anxiety, and after reading your vague posts about your condition, i was wondering... how do you handle it?


I’m prescribed Citalopram and also take Xanax on occasion when I’m feeling particularly on edge. Anxiety really does suck, and it takes a lot out of you. I have social anxiety as well. Blushing, not wanting to make eye contact with anybody… I even get flustered when I put it an order for my coffee every morning. (You’d think I’d be able to say ‘decaf skinny grande ice caramel latte’ without flinching, since it’s been my go-to drink of choice for years). The pills definitely help to take the edge off, but when I have some down time, I do my best to take a look at myself and find the underlying reasons WHY I feel the way I do. I find that it’s because I have an irrational fear that I’m being judged negatively by anyone who looks at me. People I don’t even know! It’s ridiculous, but I can’t help it. Anxiety is a brain disorder. What’s most important is that you understand yourself so you can take baby steps towards adjusting your behavior, even if you start with the little things. Self-affirmations did WONDERS for me. I know it sounds silly, but they work if you take them seriously enough, I promise you.

If you can do that, you’re one step closer to making this thing your bitch.

Good luck and thank you so much for the kind words.
