3B3: A Leap of Faith

Hello! It's time for another 30 Before 30 post. This series consists of 30 lessons, experiences, and anything else that I've discovered in my almost 30 years of life.

Today on 30 Before 30....

#10. Consent is for everyone; it goes both ways. Keep your hands to yourself and don’t make assumptions about what you think another person is accepting of. Be respectful of people’s personal space and boundaries. I want to say something from personal experience: just because you’re a woman don’t expect another woman to be alright with you touching them without their consent. I have seen this happen way too many times, which includes the times that it has happened to me. No one has to be comfortable with someone solely because they’re the same gender. Again, keep your hands to yourself.

#11. This is a random one, but it feels important. One evening a few years ago, my chia seed pudding exploded and landed on the ceiling. How did this happen? I’m not completely sure, all I know is that the chia seeds were expired. That was a crazy night. Cleaning chia seed pudding off a ceiling is difficult if you don’t do it right away. If this has happened to anyone else, please tell me about it, so I know that I’m not alone in this.

#12. I’ve been thinking about my past and it really dawned on me how sexist the people in my life were. To them, I couldn’t do *this* or *that* because I was a girl. Being a girl supposedly made me incapable of basic human functions and limited my ability to do “boy stuff.” That was always so dumb to me. A lot of the time I was better than them at the things that they assumed I was incapable of doing. Those people are no longer in my life and haven’t been for a long time, so cheers to that but what I can say is those experiences helped me to become more comfortable with who I am and with what I’m capable of. Don’t let people tell you what you can and cannot do based on your gender.
