Yes, I am alive. It has been quite a while since I have posted here and I can explain.
People say that being a second semester senior in high school is all play and no work, but the truth is that being a second semester senior is a lot of play that makes you forget that the work exists…until it comes to bite you in the butt. That was my experience at least. I have finished this senior project I have been blogging about and I am thrilled to say that it completely consumed me these past few weeks. I am proud of the end result and I walked around school during presentation week referring to this 43-page “book” as my baby. That, along with end-of-year festivities such as prom and a trip me and my friends took to Fire Island have really made these past four years of endless homework and standardized tests worth it. Unfortunately, I have not had much time to blog, but I intend to make up for it this summer.
So tonight begins my summer posting, at first a gradual flow of excerpts from my senior project and, as I experience more feminist Judaism (I’ll be at my cousin’s wedding next weekend where I plan on taking field notes concerning the expected heteronormativity and casual sexism present in the rituals, as well as the potential feminism in the remaking of them), I will blog about that on a much more regular basis.
In short, I’M BACK!
