|10:18 pm - Girly P's and T's (cookie if you can figure out what they stand for XD)|
Just some personal adventures, girl-related adventures that come about once a month if you catch my drift.
Tried a tampon for the first time today. Actually, that's not quite correct, tried it once several years ago but failed miserably because it hurt. Thinking back it was probably because I didn't do it right. Nagasaki's too bloody hot for pads and it's annoying constantly feeling like you're wearing a diaper (plus after the first few days the pad starts rubbing on my thighs making them rash and hurt >__<). So today I marched into the drug store and grabbed a box of tampons, determined to give it another go. To my surprise it actually worked, but I'm still kind of paranoid about it leaking. I mean I know it shouldn't but this paranoia won't go away since I can't feel anything down there that will catch anything. I think for the next few days I'll still wear a lighter pad just in case to catch leaks.
On another, not quite as potentially squeamish-inducing topic, I found a cockroach in my apartment yesterday. I freaked out and flailed for a good minute before I grabbed a bowl, filled it with water and threw it on the thing. Why? I don't know, it was the one thing I thought of for some reason. Needless to say, it didn't quite solve the problem, but the water turned the bugger upside down so as he was flailing I tossed a tupperware box over it and trapped it inside before I threw it out. Good grief. It was my first time seeing a live cockroach and god, just, ew. I mean the thing was HUGE. So while I was at the drug store today I also got me some cockroach spray in preparation for the next time, so I won't just be armed with H2O. I usually don't like using these chemical things, especially insecticides or the like since, as my mother so eloquently put it to me, if it can kill animals it's not exactly going to be healthy for humans either, but the thought of having to deal with another one gives me chills. I feel kind of insulted it came into my apartment though, I mean I've been obsessively cleaning it for weeks (or at least obsessive for me...I never used to clean anything...)
I have not yet tried using a tampon. H-hahaaha. It's the idea of insertion which squicks me really although kudos about bulky pads, especially when it's humid weather. And the dangers of TSD, which the teachers back in high school used to warn us about. *shudder*

I do that too with spiders! I toss water at them and wait for them to die. ;A;
Yeah, I read up a bit on it before I decided to give it another go, I figured I just have to make sure I change it regularly. I know what you mean about the insertion, the first time I heard about a tampon I was like "you want me to stick THAT thing inside my WHERE??" but I just went really, really slowly this time. The first time I tried I guess I thought the V was straight up so I was aiming straight up and so it hurt, but this time I learned it's actually slanted backwards towards the small of your back, so with some patience I managed to get it in without any pain.
As for the creepy-crawlies, lol, yeah. Spiders, cockroaches, anything that crawls and has more than 4 legs makes me icky. I found another cockroach visitor today, but I had my handy spray handy and thankfully it worked like a charm. Other wise I'd have to invest in a water gun or fire hose or something XDD

Them little bugs. They everywhere 'ere.
I'm too chicken to use tampons haha. Dx
