Are you there Internet? It’s me Jamye….

Hey Interwebs!

Are you out there?

I haven’t written anything on this blog in quite some time. Not since I got more than knee-deep into working on my dissertation proposal and finishing up my last years in my counseling psychology program at Santa Clara University. The good news is I’m almost an MFT and I’m getting closer to being not so ABD too.

Oh, and in between all of these things, I haz baby. Which leads me to post today. I was recently interviewed by Tristan Taormino on sex and pregnancy for Glamour magazine.

I figured why not share it here now.

Enjoy.
