i love teenage girls who love elephant 6. i love teenage girls who love built to spill, animal collective, pavement. i love teenage girls who love music in which the community is dominated by mid-30s men. i love how nonjudgemental they are when you’re new to the music, don’t know a song, don’t have every single album on limited-press vinyl, aren’t good at remembering names, can’t play an instrument. i love teenage girls who experiment with music when there’s a world of criticism waiting out there for us. it makes me hopeful for the future of the music we love and makes me not want to give up on learning new things about music. we have so much power. i love us.
So a few years ago, I was standing at my locker before class with one of my friends and we heard a window crash and girl start screaming bloody murder. Naturally, we ran to see what had happened. It was at that moment we wATCHED THREE DEER JUMP THROUGH THE BROKEN WINDOW INTO THE HALLWAY over top of the screaming girl, who was now in the fetal position on the floor. My friend and I ran screaming into the nearest class room, all while the deer ran around the rest of our high school. They ran three laps around the school chasing students and crashing into classroom doors before they were wrangled out the front door by our chem teacher. You might think that the first thing my school would do after this happened would be to fix the window and come up with a plan to protect us from future deer attacks? Oh no honey, instead of repairing the window it was ducked taped over for 6 months and a year later another deer crashed through the same window into the school again.
You know that moment when you realize that you are The Tech Crew Mom? I realized this digging through my purse and finding
1. Hand wipes
2. Tape Measure
3. Extra snacks
4. Electrical tape
6. Burn ointment
7. Gel swatch
And this was just my purse, not my tech bag
