A happy new year to all of you, and, if I might indulge myself, a happy start of our 10th year to all of us at Scarleteen!

I blogged today with some ideas for positive new year's resolutions around sexuality.

On board with any of those? Have more like them to add of your own? Fill us in!

I think that is excellent, Heather. I went to my boyfriend's parent's New Years/Anniversary party last night, and I was shocked to see how many young adults were engaging in sex without protection and not completely knowing their sexual partner. I seriously contemplated going to the pharmacy (I probably would have if it had been opened) buying condoms and handing them out.

Too, the statistics for women and men who don't get tested and don't get tested regularly . . . It's frightening. If I weren't in a long-term relationship, with a partner who is just as responsible as me to get tested every 6 months and use protection such as condoms and bc, I honestly think I'd not have sex. Especially after what I saw last night.

And I say thank you for the scars
And the guilt and the pain
Every tear I've never cried
Has sealed your fate.
Did you take me for a fool
or were you just too blind to see
that every effort made has failed
and there is no destroying me?

Also, Congrats! on the success of Scarleteen for 10 years. We're expecting 10 more... at the least.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this. But since we're talking about resolutions, I thought I'd share mine.

Well, for my new years resolution I've decided to take things one day at a time. I seem to always get caught up with whats happening tomorrow..or 10 years from now. Instead of just getting through the day hour by hour..

I've decided worrying about tomorrow won't help me TODAY. Right? [Smile]
