On Ask Baba Yaga: Is a Man Ever Worth Fighting For?

this is extremely true and very real- i am living it now. there have been many times i've asked this question, and looking back, i wish i'd chosen water over air every time. i'd be such a strong swimmer!

On Dude Text Decoded

I know you mean well, dude, but, come on. "Reading Between the Texts" on old Hairpin (uh oh, sorry, guys), was better, funnier, etc. Maybe read it? Link to it? Remember days of yore?

On My Struggle Bingo

is it wrong that i feel 1000x satisfied for being pretty sure these things were inevitably most of the book based on the title alone? i feel pretty satisfied.
extra so because when my soon to be ex boyfriend said he wanted to read this i basically argued it would be all of these things and he still went on to read and relate to it and now that we're broken up i can see i really dodged a bullet there.

yeah, I am thankful for your being here (like Hairpin here? In my universe here?) every day, Jia. Isn't that strange and wonderful? Everything you bring into our little world together is great. Thank you, thank you. Glad you are here.

On How to Enjoy the Airport This Holiday Travel Season

i love this & relate. love exploring all the different terminals, the secretly excellent restaurants & drinks (this (this amazing fish place in atlantaaaa! root down in denver!) & peaceful corners.
for more than 7 hours though i'd say explore the city. i've had 12 hour layovers in Rome, Brussels, Dublin & Amsterdam & treasure my mini adventures there in old streets, parks, museums, bars, churches. I also had one in Paris (the 7 hour one), but got obscenely overwhelmed in the Louvre, had to sit for a while, got on the wrong train (B1 or B2, just really fucked it up) and they wouldn't let me on the plane. So. Don't do that. Maybe 8+ hours is the way to go. But go!
