Green and (all) White.

Yesterday a lot of people from my hometown of Marshfield were sharing this link on their facebook walls: http://mobile.golocalworcester.com/news/chart-the-most-and-least-diverse-high-schools-in-ma/ The article is from "GoLocalWorcester" and it ranks every high school in the state, public and private, on their level of diversity. Of the 363 schools listed, Marshfield ranked 357th in their level of diversity, with a school system of 96.9% Caucasian students. It was the 5th least diverse public school in the state. I'm sure everyone from the town that…

Bold Encounters with January 2013

Its rare for me to remember my New Years resolution past February 1st, much less pursue it for any impressive amount of time. Regardless, January has proved itself to be an eventful month for me thus far. I quit my job at National Jean Company. I love fashion and I don't mind working retail. Normally this would be fine and I'd be completely satisfied with my life. Unfortunately, I had come to the realization that ALL I know I enjoy…

Closing walls and ticking clocks

My friend just texted me to let me know that she just witnessed a women fall into the track as a train was approaching. This past week I’ve realized how incredibly not-special I really am. As I write this I am picking at my mid-day desert from Mike’s Pastry, tiramisu. A few minutes ago I put on a winter coat, because I was too lazy to change the heat settings. We all have this idea that we’re so full of…

Uncertainty

This happens to me every couple of months. I realize that I'm at a school I don't love, studying a subject I don't love, living in a city that has so much to love- yet I don't love it. My entire life I have wanted something that didn't necessarily make a lot of sense. I wanted to be a princess until it became a completely irrational aspiration. I wanted to be a movie star up until I realized I couldn't…

Losing My (organized) Religion

I remember growing up one thing was certain, if you prayed enough good things would happen to you. The existence of god and heaven was something I never questioned. My grandmother was a minister at a big church in Boston, my grandfather to this day works for an Episcopal non-profit. I was raised to play with Noah's ark toys, I was brought up watching Veggie Tale movies, "Jesus loves me this I know- cuz the bible tells me so". I…

Don’t get me down.

  I don't understand why women are always waiting for each other to fail.   Women should encourage one another to succeed. I have no doubt that the female gender is as  equally capable as men in all aspects of life. However, the one major factor I believe in favor of men is their ability to show unconditional support for one another (yes, I realize there are many exceptions). Ladies, think about it; When your friend gets a promotion your…

Five ways to win my heart.

My strongest feelings are for those I have hurt, and have let it be known to me. I need to be put "in my place". My freshman year of college I became instantly close with a guy who was previously friends with my roommate. What was first just a friendship quickly became more than that (a result of smirnoff and themed parties). I have always been open about my strange and twisted ability to see my life from an "out…
