So Long, Semi-Sanctioned Campus Weirdness. Hello, Binge Drinking.

The silly subversiveness of college—which comes from being so minimally supervised that you don’t feel compelled to spend your few free moments with a blood alcohol content of .35 percent, teetering on the precipice of an open window—is just disappearing.

The Story Of A Breakup Told Through Nude Portraits
From Nerve.com - March 26, 2014
21 year-old photographer Jordan Tiberio captured these intimate photos of a couple in their final months.

BY CAROLINE PERKINS
In dying relationships, there is often a palpable bittersweet undertone to everything the two of you do. Going out with friends, eating dinner together, even making love feels empty. These portraits, taken by photographer Jordan Tiberio, capture the feeling of isolation in togetherness that accompanies a young couple on the verge of a breakup. The effect is haunting, leaving the viewer with the distinct feeling of aloneness you get when your heart is breaking. The collection,“Two Souls,” was originally published in Upon Paper Magazine Issue #03: Lovers.
A message from Maris, the girl pictured:

“This is me. This is my ex-boyfriend Sam. He broke up with me on our one year anniversary. We lived together and I was left without a home and very much alone. We had been together for a year and we lived together for most of that year.  We went everywhere together, we smoked the same cigarettes, we slept in the same bed. It’s been almost four months since he broke up with me. It was so hard but it’s gotten easier. I moved back in with my parents and I just started dating a really great boy. These pictures are weird to look at.
I thought when Jordan took them that we were so in love, it had just been my birthday and everything felt right and I was so happy. I was so happy. It’s hard to see these because I know now that Sam wanted to break up with me at the time these were taken and I was oblivious. He was my first real love. We don’t talk any more. I thought we could be friends but for whatever reasons, he stopped answering my messages and I stopped trying. But you know what? These pictures are special. They are real, tangible representation of something that changed my life and changed me for the better. I love you, Jordan, for taking these. Thank you.”

Grand Unified Theory of Female Pain | Leslie Jamison

I think dismissing female pain as overly familiar or somehow out-​of-​date—​twice-​told, thrice-​told, 1001-​nights-​told—​masks deeper accusations: that suffering women are playing victim, going weak, or choosing self-​indulgence over bravery. I think dismissing wounds offers a convenient excuse: no need to struggle with the listening or telling anymore. Plug it up. Like somehow our task is to inhabit the jaded aftermath of terminal self-​awareness once the story of all pain has already been told.

“For a long time I have hesitated to write a book on woman,” is how Simone de Beauvoir starts one of the most famous books on women ever written. “The subject is irritating, especially to women; and it is not new.” Sometimes I feel like I’m beating a dead wound. But I say: Keep bleeding. Just write toward something beyond blood.

The wounded woman gets called a stereotype, and sometimes she is. But sometimes she’s just true. I think the possibility of fetishizing pain is no reason to stop representing it. Pain that gets performed is still pain. Pain turned trite is still pain. I think the charges of cliché and performance offer our closed hearts too many alibis, and I want our hearts to be open. I just wrote that. I want our hearts to be open. I mean it.

The Jewel, by James Wright
There is this caveIn the air behind my bodyThat nobody is going to touch:A cloister, a silenceClosing around a blossom of fire.When I stand upright in the wind,My bones turn to dark emeralds.

The Jewel, by James Wright

There is this cave
In the air behind my body
That nobody is going to touch:
A cloister, a silence
Closing around a blossom of fire.
When I stand upright in the wind,
My bones turn to dark emeralds.
