I Will Never Be Her
I will never be her. I will never be sexually promiscuous, or Southern, or a blonde. I will never have tiny feet and hands, blue eyes, or straight teeth. It’s not in the cards for me. I don’t want to be any of those things. I like my intrusive curly hair and my Yankee tendencies. I like having big hands because I can play 10-note spans on the piano. I used to hate the gap in my teeth and wish it...
I’ll convince myself this means nothing, because that’s probably the truth. You’re nice, and sweet. It doesn’t mean you like me. In the same way, I’ll tell myself that I’m just a bit infatuated with you. It will probably pass, one way or another. It usually does. But before I do that, I will do this. [[MORE]] I will treasure your smile and the gentle look in your eyes, and for a moment hope...
Sometimes I see a musician or band play who I’ve liked for a really long time, and I always like to think that my Past-Kate self is somewhere floating behind me thinking “Yay, we finally got to see that show!” When I was in high school I was the lamest person ever, and I had a 10 pm curfew with no exceptions. Last night I saw Ben Folds; 2006-Kate who still has a crush on a...
Sometimes I forget how much I like love Arcade Fire, and then maybe I’m on Pitchfork and The National’s new single is their top shared link, and then I’m like oh hey remember when The National opened for Arcade Fire and you saw them in Chicago and Win was like “Wake Up, Jesus, it’s Easter!” and then I’m like what did Pitchfork give ‘The...
If you don't know something...
Why do you have to pretend that you know? It doesn’t make you sound cooler. It makes you seem really unintelligent and insecure.
Are You Happy?
I like to think I’m over you completely- that you’re just an unfortunate six-month lapse of judgment stemming from unhappiness in my previous relationship. I imagine I’m a “survivor”, and you just fooled me with your gingham shirts and excellent vocabulary. I tell myself you were bad for me; I was a different person when I was around you, and nobody liked it. [[MORE]] I won’t remove the photo of...

Hope is Light Pink
I woke up Thursday morning thinking of you, and put on a light pink lacy shirt. I read once that guys like it when girls wear light pink, because we come across as feminine, approachable, and desirable. I hope you desire me. [[MORE]] I went to get tea during lunch, and my boss was in the hall. He was talking to the other professor who I hate, and I wanted to avoid an awkward interaction with him....

hollocene: You’ve reached Jessa. I would never listen to a voicemail, but if you insist on trying… Hannah: Oh, hello, you FUCKER. Are you kidding me?! Where did you go. And who am I supposed to talk to if you won’t answer your fucking phone, okay? That anorexic Marnie? Fucking Shoshanna? My stalker…

Why the Obesity Epidemic is Like Modern Art
PETA: You’re fat because you eat meat. We can cure fat by making meat-eating illegal.
ENVIRONMENTALISTS: You’re fat because you drive everywhere instead of bike. We can cure fat with higher gas prices.
LOCALVORES: You’re fat because you eat fast food and over-processed junk instead of cook with local ingredients. We can cure fat by taxing fast food and processed food, and by subsidizing local farms.
ACADEMICS: You’re fat because you’re not educated enough. We can cure fat with widespread campaigns teaching people what to eat and how much to exercise.
INTERVENTIONISTS: You’re fat because bad food and gas is too cheap and poor neighborhoods are too unregulated. We can cure fat with tougher zoning laws and price regulation.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT FANS: You’re fat because you drive everywhere. If you used public transport you’d burn those extra calories taking stairs from train levels and walking to your train/bus stop. We can cure fat by expanding public transportation options.
WALKING/BIKING/RUNNING FANS: You’re fat because you sit on a bus, then sit at a desk, then sit at home. We can cure fat by building more bike lanes, walking trails, and parks.
LIBERTARIANS: You’re fat because you lack personal responsibility. We can cure fat by engendering a sense of individual pride in people.
RELIGIOUS FOLKS: You’re fat because you display the sin of greed. We can cure fat by teaching our children the correct values.
POLITICIANS: You’re fat because the previous administration didn’t care about the health of the nation and the costs of healthcare. You can cure fat (and save the economy!) by voting for me.
EMPLOYERS: You’re fat because you have a poor work ethic. We can cure fat by refusing to hire fat people, thus forcing them to lose weight in order to get a job.
