Some good words from my mom on protecting yourself: “Don’t hurt any feelings that you don’t have to. But if somebody’s feelings HAVE to be hurt, better theirs than yours.”
Some good words from my sister on cameltoe: “I mean, whatever, I don’t really worry about it. Like, congratulations, I have a vagina, you got me.”

Blouse: “In A Feeling Like This”
10:15 pm • 15 April 2014
I felt so absolutely capable today — wore sandals; taped up posters across the city; left an aggravated message on a Francophone bureaucrat’s machine; ate a hefty sandwich; read an email on the Metro from a friend who listed the flowers he’d fuck (“haha sick”), and who assured me that the conceit behind the first chapter of my thesis, which I colloquially refer to as my “chapter on assholes,” was “clear”; selected pastel stationary for our conference presenters; applied for jobs; accidentally found out that my colleagues are planning to surprise me with flowers. I am noting this down because I didn’t feel at all scared today, for the first time in nearly a year. I am going to “deadhead” my roses later this week (whatever that means). We are going to read Hannah Arendt together this summer. I am going to read fiction and nap in my favourite parc again. Wean my friend off hard drugs. Buy lots of succulents and save up for this manly dick plant. Be sweet + attentive + kind + okay again.

One of my favourite things about Yasmine is how, when I apologize for not washing the dishes for days at a time because I am writing a paper, or for listening to Miley without my headphones on, she’ll inevitably smile and say: “I’ll get over it.” And then she sings along with more precision than I can manage? Her Facebook statuses are insane, too.
