Lately I've been kind of a jerk-off especially about this whole sex thing. Well karma is a bitch, and don't worry, I got mine. Apparently for us lucky ladies it is actually normal and healthy, or can be for us to have a menstrual cycle as short as 21 days. Did you know that's like... three weeks? Three weeks. Holy fuck that is like way too soon. I never paid attention to how close together my periods were until I started having sex with my ex gf. It kind of made it important. Especially since she was on birth control for an auto-immune disease and that was the only way to really regulate it. Well, she's not dead, so is. So it got all jumbled up depending on how much time I spent with her and such. To make a really long story shorter... or whatever. I had my period three weeks ago. And now I get the lovely surprise today. That isn't supposed to happen. It hasn't even been 21 days. And it was earlier in April. If I'm keeping track, I don't want to see the little "x" at the bottom of the box for that day I'm on the rag to be in the same month... a few weeks later. Grr.

My mom was supposed to go out of town this weekend... except that I was told the wrong day. Thanks dad. I was planning on using the house. But I can't do that. Guess it doesn't matter.

I had my "first date" with my friend, the one I want to sleep with and he mutually wants to back. The virgin. Yeah, well, I kissed him. And it was really bad. I talked to my friend about it and he said that it was probably because he was really nervous. So I'll put that feather in my cap and try again.

I pity you for the three-week menstrual cycle.

That said, it could always be worse. When not on birth control, one of my older sisters has a two week cycle. There was a reason she was on the pill at fourteen. *grimaces*

It made sense in my head, I swear.

I counted after I posted. It

I counted after I posted. It was actually 17 days. That being said, I didn't know that it was going to show up this suddenly and unexpected and it could have been a lot worse. My best friend only has her period four or five times a year, but she NEVER knows when it will happen and it last like eight days.

And I know what you mean by making sense in your head, happens to me all the time. Like some things are better in theory than in practice.

Lol same. Well, technically

Lol same. Well, technically I'm 22 days, but I completely know how you feel. I'm almost permanently on PMS, it's not great. I started at nine. Completely craps your childhood up. Ah well, you get used to it :P

Heh, I'd go nuts if I had to

Heh, I'd go nuts if I had to deal with my period anymore... And that was a normal cycle. (Although, during my periods was bloody painful. I've thrown up because of cramps before.) I don't know how you girls deal with it. I seriously don't.

Oh god yes, periods suck.

I am so glad mine is short and doesn't last very long. I didn't think it would ever show up damnit, I didn't get it until I was 14. Gah, I agree with Riku on the nature of periods, except unfortunately I still get one.

Come Josephine in my flying machine
Going up she goes up she goes
Balance yourself like a bird on a beam
In the air she goes there she goes
Up, up, a little bit higher
Oh, my, the moon is on fire
