that good old winter feeling of peeling away from myself.

& for a second, I felt all the alienation at once, magnified
and all I could see were shiny drunken eyes
and in those nothing but glaring fun house reflections of myself
puffy and tired and ugly

I am 12-years-old, and my mom is dropping me off at Cameron's house - my sixth grade "boyfriend", something that never amounts to much more than 12 hour Sims marathons and the one time we kiss while our hands are perched together on the plastic indicator of my Ouija Board.

We pull up outside his house, and my mother stops me before I reach for the door handle. She leans in, giving me that look, and says "Be. Careful."

I roll my eyes. "Mom, I don't think you really have to worry. Cameron isn't like that."

She curls her hands back around the steering wheel and pauses for a moment before she says

"I know. I'm not worried about him."

If speaking up where something needs to be said makes me a bitch, well... let the bitch roar on.

Life's good. Last year I was shitting myself over having 7 exams - one every other day for two weeks. Now I have three exams ahead of me, all pleasantly spaced out. I am low stress. :D

I like days full of stimulating conversation.
Yesterday, I got in a long talk with a guy in my class after I called him out on making some inappropriate comments about our prof. We talked about feminism, relationships, gender perceptions & expectations he feels because of nursing, being Muslim, because of what he wears.

Then later Noah & I went to our friend's place and we had a long conversation about quantum physics, aliens, spirituality & science over a joint. Our friend has also lived in 6 different cities all over the world and has four passports cause his family are diplomats - it was really cool to hear his perspectives on the world.

Then we swung by Kelly's intending to drop in for a few minutes but got wrapped up in a 2-hour conversation with her mom about rape culture and other things.

Just a whole day of thought-provoking talks. Those are the best kinds.

PS. Add me on my new tumblr? dripdripdropped.tumblr.com. I warn you, there's some (tasteful) nudity on the main page right now. nsfw

Urghh. Wrong side of the bed morning, I think. I'm generally pretty lucky when it comes to period, but I'm all moody, nauseous and out of it. Balllls. I came home to Kelly in my apartment last night and I just felt so disconnected the whole time. I'm trying to not over think that, it's just a mood blip.

The end of Montreal was splendid. Lots of chatting time with Madde to release our existential angst and frustration, hehe. We went to the co-op bookstore and I got all sorts of incredible zines - one about The Jane Collective, one with a thought-provoking look at sexual assault, one on Anarchist Feminism, the last an account of the Toronto G20 summit from a militant activist perspective. Really great stuff. And a book on Queer & Gender theory by Riki Wilchins that I'd much prefer to be reading than working on a twenty page care plan. Ayeee.

This morning I could've pummeled the girl in my research group who's been causing us issues for this whole assignment. She was saying "I tried calling to make meetings, but no one could, so..." and I let that go, because it's just a blatant lie and that argument wouldn't go anywhere. She set meeting times and then never showed, with no explanation, multiple times. And then she started critiquing my formatting and I was like "... did you even read it?"- I'd sent out multiple drafts in the last week asking for feedback, which I'd received none of. I'd emailed her twice asking for the spelling of her last name for the cover page - and she said she'd been too busy, and she trusts us. She'd never even read the paper we were submitting this morning. So I said, "Well, you didn't read it, it's already submitted, it's too late now to propose changes" and she made some remark about the tone of my voice and started talking about how I'd sent her a (somewhat passive-aggressive) email earlier this week when it wasn't her fault, blahblah, and I just tuned her out. I'm done. Everyone in our group is just happy to never have to talk with her again. I come off as such a bitch in this paragraph, but her attitude has gotten to all of us. She contributed half a paragraph to the whole thing after dicking us around about meeting times for ages, and then when she does make an appearance she has numerous demands and critiques for everyone. NOPE.

Sorry, ranting! Back to work.

For my friends who listen to the XX [Nov. 7th, 2010|02:31 pm]

Shakira covering The XX!?!
Never saw that one coming.


Montreal has been great so far! Friday night Madde, Emma & I went to the Drug Store, a (primarily) lesbian bar, and I was so surprised cause the girls there were all twenty somethings and in Toronto the (TWO.. maybe even 1.5 cause one is tiny) lady bars seem to only attract women over thirty. Argh. The gay scene here is awesome.

Yesterday Madde showed me some things around Montreal, we got late lunch, and then at night we went to see a movie screening at the university. It was a documentary about a group of feminists who put on queer sex shows, called Too Much Pussy. It was so great, we were all dying of laughter through it, and it was awesome and sex-positive!

We came back here, lazed around. I finished a paper this morning. We were going to go see more things today but it's not looking so good, so we're all just hanging out. :) I missed these ladies.

A year ago, a friend of mine passed away from a coyote attack. It was really unexpected, and it was highly publicized cause attacks are so rare. The anniversary was a little over a week ago and I'd been thinking about her a lot. Then her mom messaged me today to say she'd found a letter she'd written me and never sent. Crazy, crazy. She's mailing it to me.

AGH, how did a city declared by the UN to be the most multicultural in the world, which also happens to have a pride parade attracting over a million attendees, vote some racist, homophobic bigot into the mayor's office.
