Diary 10 / 21-years-old / Durham, NC
Quite recently a good male friend of mine and I had a discussion about losing our virginity, and how it hadn’t felt particularly momentous (or particularly anything.) This entry is the time sex *did* feel like a big deal, when it did feel like growing up; and how thrilling and frightening it can feel–at the exact same time–when a young couple talks through the possibility of pregnancy. It’s my last months as a senior at Duke, and these are my last days with the boy I’d been seeing.
Yes, this really happened when I went to record this entry. Not only did it happen, but it’s an exchange with the friend I mention at the start of this week’s video. Perfect.
