she's writing a novel

a lot of her writing tends to be tongue-in-cheek. this is because she grew up in an evangelical tradition which was more concerned about where else she might be putting her tongue.

guide to urban living for young single women

One thing that you probably shouldn't do:

When you are alone at night and parallel parking in an unsavory part of the neighborhood and it's a tight space and you do that thing where you ease back until you gently, barely tap the car behind and then when you get out of the car suddenly you realize there is a teenaged white trash couple getting out of their car to come at you and saying "yo bitch, you just hit our car."

What you probably shouldn't do then is say "Yeah? Relax. It's called a bumper."

But if you do: memorize their license plate number, dial 911, and haul ass out of there.

    true story.

    it's pretty interesting the way city living affects a person...I definately didn't expect it. you learn to stick up for yourself or you get eaten alive...the concrete jungle, indeed.
