She's always wanted a mohawk.
What pushed her to do it?

between silence and shouting over this thing.
I don't want any pity parties, Jesse said
More like a titty party, Claire said to her older sister

Some women won't look at themselves in the mirror.
Some women don't want to see their bodies at all.
Some women hate their bodies. They hate them.
Try love today.
run your own loving hands over your body
yes, your hands over your very own body
feel yourself up.
What are you waiting to do?
Remember, no pity parties.
What do you want to
cut your hair
take up boxing
sing in the choir
fall in love
feel yourself up
run a race
