September 1st

Over the years, I assumed it was my mom’s way of showing off the fact that she named me after a month. It never failed, right when September 1st rolled around (up until October), she would often name me out loud so others can hear, be it at the store, in a restaurant, or any other place in public. Of course, then those who would overhear began to ask questions about why I was named after a month. I thought it was a phase, but my mom still insists.

I’ve noticed recently that my husband now does this. For what reason, I have no idea. It isn’t like he welcomes random people coming up to us and asking personal questions about my name. Usually, he will just approach me if he needs to tell me something, instead of calling my name out loud. Or maybe even he doesn’t realize he is doing it, because of his job and having to remember lots of specific dates and this month is one that is recalled, often. I don’t know.

But it’s a lot better than being called “Miss September”, I hate that crap.

my parents thought they were naming me something unique, but really they just signed me up for a life with a misspelled, mispronounced, never finding on a coke bottle name

If you are a man who thinks it’s funny to make misogynist jokes purely to make your female friends uncomfortable/angry, then you are a misogynist.  It is not “just a joke.”  You literally are finding humor in the discomfort and dehumanization of women.  You are not helping, you are not making satire.  You are just being misogynist.

This should be said to certain males I know.

For an art installation entitled Ballroom Luminoso, artists Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock created and hung six awesome chandeliers from a concrete underpass in San Antonio, Texas. The chandeliers were custom-made using structural steel, recycled bicycle parts, and custom LEDs that project a field of silhouettes of sprockets, gears, and other shapes onto the blank slate of an otherwise unremarkable industrial surface.

From the artist’s statement about the project:

Ballroom Luminoso references the area’s past, present, and future in the design of its intricately detailed medallions. The images in the medallions draw on the community’s agricultural history, strong Hispanic heritage, and burgeoning environmental movement. The medallions are a play on the iconography of La Loteria, which has become a touchstone of Hispanic culture. Utilizing traditional tropes like La Escalera (the Ladder), La Rosa (the Rose), and La Sandía (the Watermelon), the piece alludes to the neighborhood’s farming roots and horticultural achievements. Each character playfully rides a bike acting as a metaphor for the neighborhood’s environmental progress, its concurrent eco-restoration projects, and its developing cycling culture.”
