This is awesome. I don't have any good ghost stories, which pains me, because I love reading other people's. I grew up kind of a scaredy-cat, but my favorite adult when I was younger was our Catholic-school nun choir director who told us amaaaazingly spooky stories of spirits and the unexplained. My friends loved it - they were very much into witchy and occult things - but I spent half the time intrigued by these things that frightened me, and the other half just plain frightened.
@e271828 And then it's in perfect rhyme/meter! I love the estate jewelry feature here. MOAR ESTATE JEWELRY.
Probably the best thing I've ever read. <3
I'm not sure if it's good or bad that I had never heard of this company until right this minute.
"Someone trying to mansplain IUDs to you" made me snort oatmeal. Thanks, Jazmine. <3 <3
This is amazing. Whose idea was it to make a book? How do you still have this? So many questions, so much appreciation.
Ooh, this is interesting. Can't wait for future installments. I can't imagine what it would be like to have this kind of condition permanently - I had my tonsils out a couple years ago and just that temporary amount of time being unable to sing, speak, or swallow without off-the-charts pain was more than I could handle. This is such a beautiful method to conveying your experience.
<3 This is great and says incredibly eloquently the things I think and feel but can't express. Bravo!
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Well, the StL County PD and the FBI are handling the investigation of Mike Brown's murder, but the militarization of the police force in the area is just making things worse. I grew up in the neighboring town, and plenty of my friends and their families still live in Ferguson. It just seems like nothing can make it better or back to normal, at least not yet. It's like Halloween or New Year's - plenty of people are taking this and twisting it into an opportunity to act like hooligans, when the goal of most people who live and work in the area is fixing the system and getting justice for what happened to Mike Brown.
All my social media feeds are full of firsthand accounts/pictures/video of the happenings in and around Ferguson, but I am so thankful that Jia is keeping this community informed and updated through the Hairpin.
Oof, right in the awkward high-school-aged feels. Lovely read.
