New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland won the vote in 1918, 1919, 1922, and 1925, respectively. In all cases except New Brunswick and Ontario, the right to vote was accompanied by the right to hold office; New Brunswick women

Shit it’s 3AM.

This is an experimental poem of mine and also my attempt to capture a procrastinator’s mind…let me clarify, though, this is not a personal experience. I don’t really procrastinate because I’m a good student, haha. At least, not like this, going back and forth between Facebook and required school readings. I did quote extensively from my women studies textbook, though. I was also referring to a real video being posted and later removed on Youtube, about this Asian kid being beaten up by seven other kids. The “friend” names I totally made up. I tried to imitate online “Facebook” talk and I used some abbreviations…the spacing was really tricky when I transferred it onto WordPress, because the editing box doesn’t really reflect the reality of the page (once it’s published, that is.) I had to preview like crazy to make sure everything looks right. And anyway, I am SO HUNGRY right now. I need to go eat.
