Splits Saga: Week … Whatever

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times (I don’t really understand that saying, but whatevz) – I’M BAD AT CONSISTENTLY BLOGGING. So let’s just skip over the fact that I haven’t documented my progress in a few weeks.

I’m getting slightly off topic, and let me preface this post with a woman-bodily function alert (?) in that I’m going to talk about my vag and stuff that goes on in and around it. So, we cool? Cool.
