Wow. Months, people. It’s been MONTHS. I didn’t mean to let months go by without writing, but somehow life just got in the way. A few updates for those of you who need to be brought up to speed: I got the degree last year (the reason I started writing this blog in the first place), which eased the need for frequent posting. Then I went back to working in daily radio which, let me tell you, is a (fun but) relentless (and tiring!) job that didn’t exactly leave me wanting to sit at a computer when I got home from work. I kept promising myself that I’d sit down and write…and then I’d keep not doing it. So I decided to let myself off the hook and stopped writing altogether, even as some of you continued to correspond, sending me amazing personal notes about your own experiences. I slacked. I’m sorry.
Now the universe decided it was time for pubic hair and I to get back together.
Two things happened in the span of a very short period of time.
Firstly, though my blog had essentially been dormant since April, an editor with The Coast alternative newspaper in Halifax wrote me out of the blue and asked me to contribute something about the demise of pubic hair to their annual Back-to-School issue.
(wondering what pubic hair has to do with heading back to school? You can read the whole article here)
The second thing to happen is that I’ve been invited to be a guest speaker at the National Eating Disorder Information Centre‘s 2013 conference. They want me to talk about (surprise, surprise!) body hair, body politics and popular culture.
So: it’s time for me to starting thinking about all this stuff again. And there is, of course, lots of stuff to think about. So again – apologies for not being here when you needed a place to rant. More updates coming soon.
