Roxane Gay at Wigleaf

17 Dec

Roxane has an incredible piece over at Wigleaf titled “The Widow Takes Her Coffee Black.” In a very, very compressed space, this story gets at the heart of social expectations, the pressures that others put on us, the assumptions that they make about us–and the awkward and uncomfortable ways that we try to extricate ourselves from those expectations.

I almost didn’t write about it here: it feels a little like nepotism, now that she’s contributing here. But I kept coming back to it, or it kept coming back to me. And so I decided, nepotism or not, I was going to send you over there to read it.

    The new boards you can unlock primarily serve aesthetic purposes, but towards the latter
    end some of the boards (such as the “Black Devil”)
    provide you advanced “anti-gravity” skateboarding opportunities, which help you
    rack up more points and perform a variety of tricks in an anti-gravity environment.
    What is significant to take note is the fact that whenever games are released in other gaming consoles,
    it is almost always simultaneously released in PSP version as well.
    But if a person is using VPS server for wrong purpose then it would affect his performance
    only and not the neighboring servers.
