paying tolls as an adult
Start writing a post

You know one thing that I've never agreed with or really seen the purpose of?

I mean, you're essentially paying to drive on the road and if you're like me and you don't keep cash on you nor do you have a sun pass, then you definitely are just out of luck.

I usually put in the GPS to avoid tolls so I don't have to deal with them at all, but dumb little me thought that it would be a good idea to try a new route and I was thoroughly surprised when this route had a toll and I was stuck.

You can't back up on the expressway, now can you?

And you'd think that when you tell the nice man that you don't have any cash and that the only way that you'd be able to pay him is if you paid with a card that he would let you go and just keep it moving.


Is that not how it works?

Well, I've been led to believe differently.

Not so much "led to believe" as I am "just making this up as a I go along."

But, yeah just as a tip to anyone that might be wondering, they don't care if you don't have the cast on you. They will just as sure give you a little ticket thing tell you that you have to mail it in.

But what sense does that make? The postage and the envelope will be more more than the actual toll was.

So what are you accomplishing at this point? Not a thing. You're paying more the toll in the long run than if you had just kept cash on you in the first place.

I know there's probably an actual reason for tolls to exist but as of right now to me, they're just nuisances that are costing me more than they should and preventing me from going to where I need to go in a timely manner.

Which I think is the opposite of their tolls?

It's a no from me.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.


Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.
