Is anyone else—Scared of sex?
I get really uncomfortable when people talk about sex or hookups. I'm not against people having sex and I don't think there's something sacred about it or whatever, but the idea just terrifies me.
I'm not sure if it's because I'm inexperienced and have no idea what would be or wouldn't be sexy, if it's because I'm insecure about my body, or if it's because I'm scared of physical contact. I'm not very attractive and I'm on the verge of overweight, so that probably contributes. I get stressed when people get in my personal space bubble (I like hugs but only when I'm ready for them) and I get hyper aware of my every movement/body part when people get too close. I'm not sure where this fear comes from but it's clearly deeply embedded and not going away any time soon without some serious work on my part.
Has anyone else dealt with something like this? I don't think I have something specifically triggering it that I can blame it on, but still. I actually enjoy other people and I wish I could get hugged more but I just get so physically uncomfortable that I can't enjoy physical contact when it does happen.
If it helps at all, I'm a female, 20, and I do go to therapy already (for depression) but I absolutely hate it because expressing emotions and talking about myself is not really my forte.
ravers of whitman—do any of you enjoy going to EDM shows and/or raves/rave like events? i've never been before but i really want to go. seems like the closest place with a scene is seattle. is it worth it to drive that far? do you know of any smaller/underground scenes closer?
Does anyone else—Really like Walla Walla? I feel like many people at Whitman complain about being here without fulling realizing how great of a town Walla Walla is. The people are friendly, it's located in an absolutely beautiful area, and it has a lot to do for a town of its size. Sure, it has its problems (just like any city) but as a whole I feel like its a pretty great place that I could see myself living in someday. Thoughts?

Am I the only senior...—Who really doesn't want to leave?
This site is crawling with posts about people of all years who can't wait to graduate. I sympathize with that, it was how I felt in high school. But I keep thinking of where I'll be in six months or a year--I have no plans yet, which doesn't help--and seeing no way I will be as happy as I am right now.
