My cousins found quince jam for me. They searched far and wide. The results are delicious. Their valor, patience, and fortitude are to be commended.
I am immeasurably thankful that I’m done with school, undergrad, grad school. That this is the second September that I don’t have to go back. That I never have to go back again. That I get to learn on my own terms, now. Good riddance.
This is what we must remember. Women cannot be sexual in certain ways without consequence. Women cannot pose nude or provocatively, whether for a lover or themselves, without consequence. We are never allowed to forget how the rules are different girls. I suppose we should be grateful for this latest reminder.

Who/what/where/when/why did you decide to go to library school, or…
Fun fact: Kt and I started our MLIS degrees on the same day, though I was at Rutgers and she was at UMD. We spent the night before freaking out about what to wear and the fact that neither of us had working parking passes.
