Here’s some fantastic news for your Friday: On Thursday, the California Senate unanimously approved a new bill that defines sexual consent as a firm “yes” rather than a lack of “no.”

micdotcom:

This is a big win for anti-rape activists, many of whom have been touting the necessity of an “affirmative consent” standard for years. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has the next month to sign the bill into law. If he does, schools across the state would be required to define consent before engaging in sexual activity as an “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement” or risk losing state financial aid funding.



"I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience."

TALK TO YOUR COUNSELOR AND BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR PROGRESS 
Most of the people who were just sorta dicking around at my CC were the ones who never met with their counselors. Though counselors can def be bad at their jobs, and even pretty useless, touching base with them at the start of every semester is a good way to just make sure you’re on track. Make sure you write down the requirements for your AA and/or transferring and keep up with it yourself. A counselor is a good resource, but ultimately you are the only person responsible for education in college. Keep a document tracking your progress and ensure every class you enroll in will take you one step closer to your goals. Everyone goes through CC at their own pace, but don’t be the one who’s floating around without a paddle and taking Table Tennis 100 for the third time. (I took Table Tennis 100 only once, tyvm.)

As a UCLA transfer, I wrote a guide to ensure getting the most out of your community college experience and achieving UR DREAMZ.

As a fellow transfer student I gotta say this is some advice I totally could have used during community college. Don’t be afraid of challenging yourselves, friends!

(Self-care is not Selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel)

The most important thing I try and emphasize when it comes to self-care and relationships, poly, mono, open etc, is that:
 You are in fact, your own primary partner. 
Take care of yourself, be your own gardener. 
Make yourself your utmost priority.
Be compassionate for yourself and empathize with everyone else. Everything else comes second.
