What Your Favorite Early 2000s Song Said About You

In the first decade of the 21st century, nothing was off-limits. It was the age of pseudo punk-rock filled with spiked hair and spiky bracelets from Hot Topic, ”scandalous” pop and hip-hop coated in halter crop tops, and lots of eyeliner. There was so much eyeliner. 

For many of us, the music of the early 2000s paved the way for our very mature existence. We were sensually shaped by Britney Spears’ sophomore album, Gwen Stefani’s slow-but-sure drift away from No Doubt, and all the bands that made moving to Southern California seem dreamy — and absolutely necessary. We wore knee socks and Vans. We sang along in our parent’s cars.

We know you were a different person back then, but that doesn’t mean your inner 2000s diva ever really left.

Well. I got around to watching the True Blood series finale last night. Like most finales, it didn’t quite do the show justice, and I felt very “meh” about the entire thing, even though I think it ended appropriately. Spoilers ahead, so stop reading if you haven’t watched it!
So, okay. I KNEW it was best for Sookie if Bill died. I get it. We all get it. He’s done nothing but cause trouble in her life. He’s betrayed her, almost killed her, almost raped her, etc. He’s bad news. For sure. But did Sookie feel most alive with him, ironically? Hell yeah. She loved Bill. Always did. I wanted that love to continue, whether they were together or not. I just wasn’t totally sold on him dying, EVEN THOUGH everything about this season pointed toward his longing to be with real family. I guess it was kinda poetic that Sookie killed him twice. Once when she allowed him to feed off her, and again when she staked him. The cemetery scene was pretty awesome, I must say. It brought back memories from I think season 1? When Sookie thinks Bill is dead and runs to the cemetery only to find Bill naked and horny and ready to fuck! Yeah, not so much this time. 
I was very whatever about Jessica and Hoyt. I think the writers made that happen because ooh wow a wedding on the finale, very original. And Jason? Of course he ends up with Bridget. Yawn.
One thing I absolutely loved about the finale, is that they didn’t show who Sookie’s guy was. A human, sure. But otherwise, it didn’t matter. All that mattered is that she was happy, living a normal, preggo life. Because, after all, this show is about Sookie, not the guys she hooked up with. ALSO, Eric + Pam. Love that happy ending. I KNEW Eric couldn’t die. 
Oh well. I’ll miss you, True Blood.

ENEMIES, LOVE YOUR  

As a child, I stapled my fingers together

Sometimes you are born without wanting to sign for peace

At the time of conception, the body is a dumb TV at the curb

Sometimes you say no and get diamonds anyway

Sometimes you are a toothpick in a man’s mouth

In school they teach you about the many colors of dying

The Virginia Woolf, the AIDS, the Wrong From Birth

I am always loved by men dressed as Jesus

They give me their Word

They take away their Word

Sometimes blood is only arithmetic

How little of it, how much to avoid zero

Planes crash when you are afraid to tell the truth

Velocity is a privilege, and headrests, and language

If a knife is at your throat, you say Every angle is terrifying

Sometimes Rilke will not sit with you in the photo booth

Sometimes beauty does not want to be seen with you

There are men who will title your life “Violent, with Reckoning”

Sometimes a sneaker is the only boat to leave on

Sometimes a girl will become <

Not less than, but an opening

When flowers wilt, so does love, so does god

There is music when what you love crosses the ledger line

Every good boy does fine

No good man lets a pretty thing die

Attempting to make my own chai latte. Kinda successful? I steeped four bags of Tazo chai in a mug and then added half of that to a mason jar (I know) with some vanilla almond milk and a teaspoon of sugar. LORD KNOWS IM TRYING.

You know, everyone hated this season of The Office (second to last, I think?) but Erin was like, hitting the PEAK of her comedic genius, and I loved that character so much. Ellie Kemper Project?

"When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty."
