I think one of the major signs of my inevitable decline is the TV I choose to watch while at home over break. Right now, I am alternating between Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights and Sister, Sister with Tia and Tamara Mowry. I am home alone, watching this horrible television while my mother and my sister are out buying a Christmas tree despite the fact that we're Jewish. This is my life and I love it. Really.

We are close together,
like flowing silk through fingertips,
like if we speak we lose a game we play because of its comfort and we feel comfortable,
in the rain
pattering on the roof of your car,
it's the only sound we hear because if one of us makes one the moment might be lost and you,
it’s like silk so delicate I can feel an entire planet underneath, the blood pumping through veins, the breakable bones, all the organs and arteries that could fail at any minute and I’m thinking of God, a bit.

The trouble is all in my head, I think, but if I were advising a girl, much like myself, I would say “Hey! You fucking dimwit! Don’t let men control your life! Give up on faith and live for yourself! Abandon the sick feeling in your gut whenever you think about him not thinking about you, and if he is thinking about you, you thinking about him thinking you’re fat.” Oh, I’ve been to all the levels of this emotion and it’s not a funny little thing called love, or romantic note passing, or sweet nothings, or chocolate melting over burning passionate vibrators. Most of those things are embarrassing anyway, and you wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a sweater with his name stitched into it, burning red letters, Brad So and So, with his cool blue eyes and his blond flipped up bangs. Love isn’t like that. It’s awkward and it’s painful and more often than not, you will think that you look fat in that dress, and he will think so too.
