On Fun Palace
I just loved this.
I needed to hear this piece today, because (cringing) I don't feel I have as much to be proud of as some of the ladies above, and I do find myself really really burnt out as this year comes to an end. I want to do some goal setting for 2015 and have it be the year of taking real steps to building a better life for myself. This was a good little kick in the pants reminder. I am proud of sticking with tough things this year at work and with family, and I'm proud of not giving up. I just want to channel that strength into thriving, and doing what I really want to do, not just barely making it.

It is so infuriating to be shut down. And then socially punished for speaking. I think you're probably right that some of the personal negativity can be worked on (can't we all?), but the social shut downs are a different creature all together. Fun piece to read, even though yeah @jennaskies, I am also somehow a little angry now, too. Righteously so!
This rocked me. I've never read anything like it. I'm glad that it exists, and that you told your story. And I'm so sorry for what you're going through. This one will stay with me. Take care.
This was so awesome Jia. And Noel. :)
Did anybody else sort of think there was some unresolved sexual attention between Betty and Bobby's teacher? She's also such the opposite of Betty... naturally friendly nurturing with kids, physically beautiful perhaps without all the corseting and careful hairdos. And when Betty drinks the milk ("It's sweet")!!! I'm just saying.
I. Loved. This!
