For my Creative Nonfiction class, we were given ten minutes to write a list of things we believe in. This is my list:
I believe a woman should have the right to end a pregnancy if she feels she needs to.
I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I believe saying "Fuck" during the Oscars is awesome.
I believe parents should explain words like "nigger" and "fuck" to their kids instead of sheltering their children, hiding them from the truth.
I believe tights should not be worn as pants.
I believe my cat is my superior and all humans must worship and obey her.
I believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
I believe I forgot my earrings on my desk this morning.
I believe bacon is the meaning of life.
I believe my Challah didn't rise/triple in size yesterday because the yeast came into contact with too much salt.
Obviously, I took it quite seriously.
