My new favorite feminist site

I was reading Feministing, and they had a post about a new site for teenage feminists, by teenage feminists, called The FBomb.  I went to check it out, and it’s pretty cool.  It was started by a young woman named Julie Zeilinger, who is about my age.  The FBomb shows that teenage girls are actually involved in the world and have something to say about it!  It’s a community blog that anyone can write for, and I wish I had something of substance to write about, because it would be amazing to see my own writing on a site like that. 

Recently, The FBomb has posts about Cameron Diaz choosing to be a “non-breeder” and Midwest Teen Sex Show making a pilot for Comedy Central

Go check it out!

In about one year, you’ll have it all figured out.

These big city dreams are what you’re about.

It seems like everyone that goes to my high school hates this town and just wants to get out.  I’ve never felt that way, because I like it here.  I mean, I wouldn’t want to stay here forever, but I’m happy with going to school here and the life I have here.

I found something in a notebook that I wrote on the last day of school that was inspired by the line from “Big City Dreams” by NeverShoutNever! that is also the title of this post.  I wrote about how I hope that I’ll have things figured out by next year that I’m struggling with now.  I also wrote about not being confident in myself and lacking social skills.

The last thing I wrote was:

I guess I don’t need to figure it all out in one year.  That’s what the rest of my life is for.  In the book, In Their Shoes, an engineer named Tamara Hayman said one of her mentors told her, “Stop trying to figure out exactly what you want to do and just take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way.”
