I don’t know if I’ve ever come across something that so accurately describes my life.

Sr: don’t forget, you’re now part of a long line of boat rockers. I expect big things from you.

wtf: nun dream edition

This weekend is our huge 150th celebration & I dreamt that the ann arbor dominicans came processing into the chapel singing & praying their rosaries. The rosaries were made out of those soft felt-y craft balls. One sister & I ran into the dining room to hide and, when we went back into the chapel, they were all kneeling in front of a picture torn out of some magazine while singing Salve Regina.

The woman in the blue coat approached me by the United Nations building yesterday, and said: ‘There is an interesting man around the corner that you should photograph. I don’t know his name, but everyday he stands directly across from the UN, and says ‘God Bless You’ to everyone who walks past. I’ve always sort of viewed him as the conscience of the world.’'Let's go together,' I said, and she agreed to bring me to where he was standing. When we finally found the man, I asked for his photo, and he cheerfully agreed. But he pointed at a nearby wall:"Let’s take the photo under that scripture," he said.

Two 11-year-old girls, Ida and Agnes, were recently harassed by the opponent team and its team leaders, during a local football tournament. They accused the girls of being boys because they had short hair. (And won over the other team, because the only reason…

Behold my childhood. One time, a lady chase a friend and me (when we both had short haircuts) into a women’s public restroom because she thought we were boys.

Sex Education in American Public Schools

Damn it, Texas, you are too big to be acting like this.

Miami, FL and Baton Rouge, LA have the highest transmission rates of HIV/AIDS in the country (NYC, NJ, and Philadelphia combined are 3rd), and yet Florida and Louisiana don’t have to 1) provide sex education 2) provide HIV/AIDS education and none of those have to be medically accurate.

And it comes as a shock every year when it hits the news! 

Our sex ed included the following: labeling diagrams of male and female anatomy and learning how to put a condom on a banana (both freshman year of HS). I kid you not.
