    Sometimes you just want to write a little update and then, oops, you write way more than that. Here are some thoughts I’ve had on the ALS ice bucket challenge since my first post last week.

    I'm an Introvert →

    It took me a long time to be ok with being an introvert. But I’ve found that understanding my own needs have helped me with relationships, work, and family. “Hey world, I am what I am!”

    My fiancé did the thing! And there are cats. Don’t worry, the cats are fine.

    We can be sexual, sexy and flawless while advocating and fighting and educating and uplifting and critiquing and challenging and giving and everything.

    I wrote this post explaining why I did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. There are problems with the campaign, but it has also done a lot of good. In addition to the challenge, I donated a little to the ALS Association. I think you should, too. Because ALS sucks.

    UPDATE: on Thursday, The ALS Association had raised $4 million since the Ice Bucket Challenge began. Today, they’re at $11.4 million. That’s pretty damn excellent.
