Here's a warning to all before reading. I'm talking about girlie things.
Monday in my dance class I realized that something had some a little early, and I was stuck on campus until 9:20 unprepared. Not really an issue when there's a small store on campus that can provide me with tampons, but when I have to be in class right away, not so nice.
Fortunately I was able to ask around in my next class, and then in the bathroom and someone had one for me. All was fine for class and then I was able to get to the student store to get set for the rest of the day. That's where my hippie side took over.
These were available in the store, and at the price they were, it was the cheapest per tampon, and didn't have those waste of paper applicators. Plus, yay for organic anything, right? Well, even as I was buying them, I was thinking that no applicator might just be a tad over the line as far as too green for me.
I went for it anyway.
I tried it after a ridiculous fire alarm in the computer lab, and I have to say, I'm a little surprised at how not bothered I am by any part of it! Turns out I can totally do this, and I may even prefer it to typical tampax. I do have to admit that the idea of so many fewer chemicals sitting inside my body is both mentally and physically preferable.
