Another post concert selfie. 

This is after the Ed Sheeran show.
Right before I was going to go to sleep.

Saw Ed Sheeran in Chicago tonight with a childhood friend, OMG!!!!!

I am beyond happy I went.
He is so perfect.
The way he commands attention is insane.
He owned that crowd from beginning to end.
I’m sooooooo happy I’ve seen him.

I seriously enjoyed him as much as The Sounds and Vampire Weekend.

Today she walked in from her doctor’s appointment and casually said to me, “It’s back.”
Can’t explain how sick I felt after hearing that.
Wanting to scream too.

"It’s back," was something we didn’t hear for 8 years.
Now it’s all we’ll think about until it turns into, “I beat it. Again.”

the satisfaction

One time in like 5th grade I had this teacher and she gave us all bottles of shit like this and told us to squeeze it all out and of course we were like fuck yeah and did it and then she said, “Now, try and shove it all back in the container.” Of course we all tried, and then stared at her confused as shit. When we all obviously gave up, she said, “In the moment, you were so consumed with what you were doing that you didn’t realize the mess you were making. Then, after it was so quickly and easily poured out, you realize it is impossible to put it all back in. Remember this for the rest of your lives when it comes to the words that come out of your mouth” and we were like 10 so we were like yeah ok whatever lady, but somehow to this day I think of it constantly.

IT IS GETTING BETTER

When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.

you rock it, young feminist protesters. Fuck yeah, I am so proud of you.

Yes, they’re awesome.
But I think there is another part about this I like, too.  Notice the burden of that pain is being shared — made lighter by women committed to being here and helping.  They can’t fix it, of course but mutual support makes the burden lighter.
No wonder the patriarchy wants us in competition with each other…

We shall overcome some day
