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.
Diary 10 / 21-years-old / Duke University: Durham, North Carolina
It’s my senior year of college, and I’m traveling to NY for grad school auditions. The city, and my friends who already live there, are pure magic. When I get back to Duke, I’m ready to be in the arms of a boy I’m seeing–the first time I’ve ever really dated anyone.
Diary 10 / 21-years-old / Reading, Ohio (winter break from college)
First post! I ended up using my test recording for the actual diary read. For me, it’s the very beginning of this project, and what made me decide to move forward. Fitting, then, that the entry is about my new year’s resolution. I had just read “Mama Gena’s Guide to Womanly Arts,” and thus the New Year’s Resolutions to take over the world! Erm… “have more fun.”
