I ended up not submitting that paper on time/at all. Not sure what the consequences will be.
But honestly it feels quite liberating.
I’ll have to deal with the consequences later. But one thing that happened today was that a friend correlated the due date of this lab report with my birthday, which is today and how weird it was that they coincided. It hasn’t left my mind and I’m really trying to see what it all means. Of course, there’s no one right answer but we’ll see.
Also I have been awake 21 hours and I’m really glad I made it home safely. Don’t drive sleep deprived. Please don’t.
I saw the Jackson Katz event on masculinities and it was really good. A friend of mine actually bought me a copy of the book there which I thought was extremely nice of her. It was the “macho paradox”. And I also got to see a friend that came down from Yale to visit. Which was great!
I’m really glad to have made it to 21. It’s an accomplishment for me.
I’m not married.
No kids, yet.
Never had a bf or gf.
I’m surviving school as it is not kind towards me.
I’m proud of my accomplishments such as working while doing school while being mama Gaby and while commuting to school and teaching an ESL class and being a co president to an org and mentoring two awesome activists for the fellowship I’m a part of.
I’m proud of being the first person in my family to go to college.
Let alone a private liberal arts college.
I may not be on track for an honors degree or have the best grades, but I’m on my own path.
I’m also very lucky to have my friends.
I’m lucky to have the family that I have despite them not supporting what I do.
I’m glad I have my moms love.
I’m glad to almost be done with college.
Here’s to the next 21 years.
