Single Gal Blog
Blog 1 Four years ago, I decided to move to Boulder for writing school. That girl four years ago thought things were going to go the way she wanted them to go. I thought for sure I would be working at a publishing company, living in a studio downtown, and dating. Here I am a single gal living in a pandemic.
The Box She spends her time wondering what her life could be, she wonders what 20 years would look like. Life can flash really fast and before she knows, the time will be gone. She imagines what the places are like than the place she is in. What is the air like three oceans away? What does the grass feel like? What does the sun feel like? What would it feel like if she touched the ground with her fingers? If she laid in a meadow of wild flowers and the birds flying above the sky? She daydreams while steaming milk in a pitcher making a latte.
Stories about Dogs
Moonlight In the middle of the day, leaving to go out for a drink. Close the door, lock the door. On my way to the bar, there is this sense that there is something behind me, I feel the hair on the back of my neck stand up. My stomach drops, my heart beats a little faster than usual. I slowly turn around, there is a moonlight dog with eyes I have never seen. The dog slowly sits, tilts it’s head at me to pet him. The grey/blue eyes staring at me, like he knows everything about me. Something very familiar with this dog, my skin gets goose bumps, the dog howls at me. This sound I have never heard before, sound of desperation and truth. I’m supposed to receive this message? What am I supposed to think?
Virginity As a little girl, I have always been taught that virginity was an important for me to keep till I was married. When I was 13 years old, I was given a promise necklace to keep my virginity till I was married. When I was given this necklace, I struggled with why it was so important for girls to be a virgin for their wedding night. I can remember that I kept asking the question why it was so important for me to keep my virginity but not boys. I think if girls are asked to keep their virginity so boys should too. Society is so concerned with girls being sexual that they let boys slide by and lead boys on to think it’s okay for them to have sex before marriage. In society not many boys are told to keep their virginity for marriage. There is this idea that it’s okay for boys to have sex but not girls. Girls are called names and boys get a pat on the shoulder for conquering that girl. Why is it okay for boys to have sex before marriage and not girls?
