Scarleteen Rockstar(s) of the Week!

Postby Karyn » Tue Jul 29, 2014 5:29 pm

We are often inspired by our users, especially those working hard to take positive steps in care of themselves. [Smile]

So, we wanted to start a little tradition here where we have somewhere to give shoutouts to users we are feeling awed by.

This can be something anyone here adds to, not just something the staff and volunteers post, so if any given user here is rocking your world and making you go, "Wow!" feel free to drop a post here yourself! It also very much does not have to be limited to one user each week.

I'd like to roll this out by giving shoutouts to both SinnamonShuga and ladybug13, who both, this week, have taken or are planning to take big steps to get away from people treating them poorly and give themselves some real love and care. Yay for both of you! You rock!

SilentDragon, for doing big and excellent self-care things when they're hard and challenging. Kudos!
The kyriarchy usually assumes that I am the kind of woman of whom it would approve. I have a peculiar kind of fun showing it just how much I am not.

Whichever staff member created the You cannot become pregnant when you have pants on. page deserves a confetti shower and a large pile of their favorite candy.
Especially because it mentions unicorns and flying pigs.
And I keep giggling at the phrase "an utter lack of pants".

You and our many regulars will, I think, be entirely unsurprised that it was Heather :)
