well, I can say it AGAIN: thank YOU, Jia. You're great and I'll miss you.
@Jia Tolentino Jia, I was going to wait 'til the thread, but I want to say that I really enjoyed everything you did here. Your writing has, at times, really articulated what I feel, and others just given me a whole new thing to think about. That is rare and great and I'll miss you. Please tell us where can we follow you now!
THIS IS SO PERFECT! my favorite part is ALL OF IT. Thank you, Lindsay. I've read all your tumblr posts about this issue but this piece really brings it home.

tearing- up at my desk too. I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope you find the way to keep racing. This was beautiful.
This was funny and sad and awesome and I reaaaally hope that whoever comes after Jia and Emma continues to post this kind of content.
this was lovely and made my wish my dad was less of a fuck up. (don't feel guilty, I wish this once a day)
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)
Hey, I always read your lists even if I don't reply.
Good things: my cousin came to town and we just had lunch and she met my boyfriend. I went out with friends twice this week and bindge- watched Call the Midwife.
Jia, Emma, the past few weeks have been really good Hairpin weeks. I just wanted to say that too :)
wow, "What We Have Going for Us" is one of my favorite pieces on The Hairpin ever, and I just read that it was yours too. This was also really good and beautiful and hard. Thanks for sharing-
so happy to see arabelle's byline! OK, now I'll go read it.
