That being said, I'm really proud of the women in my grade. I'm proud of the boys too, but way more the women. Is that sexist? Maybe. I can still live with myself. After watching this video, I was really proud of us:
I'm proud of the girls in my life for wanting careers in science. And honestly, I'm actually really proud that I'm good at math (or used to be before I got stupid). I've kinda grown to hate math and give up on it entirely, but I'm proud that I got a 5 on AP Calc, and that if I want to, I'm totally capable of going into math (assuming my brain decides to come back). But I'm more proud of my best friend Alex who wants to be psychologist or a neuroscientist and Elisabeth who's going to do cognitive neuroscience, and Emma who wants to double major in English and Physics, and all the others who want to do math and science fields. I love that I get to spend my time around powerhouse women who want to take on the science world. And you know what? They will kick the science world's ass. Then they'll write poems about it that will probably win lots of awards.
Maybe they'll let me, their poor starving eccentric writer friend, come summer with them on Cape Cod.
