It has been edited in parts, and the name of the byline is not quite mine, but who cares?* My essay, "Delayed Gratification," is up on Nerve.com as one of their featured pieces! Check it out: http://nerve.com/features/true-stories/delayed-gratification.
N.B.: Family members and anyone worried about knowing too much about me, read at your own risk. Nerve is, you know, a sexy site, with sexy stuff in it. Also, they italicize an awful lot of words.
*Okay, I kind of do care. I'm trying not to! I remember this feeling from working at the Swarthmore student paper, the Phoenix. Focusing on the edits is silly. I'm on Nerve! The world can see me! The one comment that's up so far is incredibly sweet!
