"We live in a world where losing your phone is more dramatic than losing your virginity"
Um ok but I don’t recall my virginity having 16 GB of memory with all my contacts, music, photos, calendars, and apps or costing over $200.
my phone is an expensive and important material object and not a useless social construct put in place to shame and commodify women
Plus I remember where I lost my virginity.

A really cool thing about being in graduate school is having people with connections notice my poetry and ask me to submit to their literary magazines. I have so much work to do on the poems I wrote this semester, but classmates and professors have been telling me the best fucking things about my writing and that helps me keep going.
