Everyone is Getting Married and I'm Writing a Book

"Judgments"I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.
Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate.
I’d like to think I’m more open now.

This is perfect. It’s makes visible something far too many people have trouble seeing.

My boyfriend is sending back this envelop to our alma mater. It came with a letter asking for donations. He’s nowhere near finished paying off his students loans, an unfortunate reality for far too many people these days. And yet the education business still wants more money.
