I've been reading and reading and actually reading for my college literature classes for one in my life, unlike past semesters when I just briefed them through.
That's all I can write for now since I have to prepare for my presentation for American lit tomorrow, and watch Mean Girls for film, and read Shakespeare for brit lit, oh and study for my world civ test and start writing a paper due Friday, oh and then last and least... study for a quiz and a test by the end of the week for criminal justice, oh wait, one more, and my internship!!!!!!!

I've been in school for about a week. In that time, I've been busy. Super busy. So busy that I'm typing this post on my phone as I sit on the toilet. (tmi, sorry.)
Let's take a brief overview of my classes...
American lit 1: torture but tolerable
World civ: tolerable but professor has too many expecting for a 1000 level class (yes I have to take a 1000 level class to fulfill the need of my minor)
Brit lit 1: tolerable... I actually enjoy it
Film: MY FAVORITE
Criminal justice: eh
Okay, that's just a quick little update. I will go into detail once the stress hits and I need to vent about it.
But let's take a second to appreciate my cute theme I have established on my insta feed over the last week or so since moving back to Arkansas.

You know you're old when you get excited about your plant growing. I bought this aloe plant at Lowe's and it was literally a babh, and now I'll need to repot her. Just some thoughts...
And how is it already August??

I will not lie, maybe it's because I can relate to Rachel in wanting someone who you can't have, but I rooted for her so badly. The first time I read this book, I was probably fifteen, and then the second time I was eighteen-- and of course I naively thought that the affair that Rachel carried on with Dex was so desirable and that betraying Darcy was no big deal. But after reading it again (being twenty now) I realize just how wrong Rachel was.
Hilary and Ethan (I love him) shed light to Rachel on what a terrible friend Darcy is to her, and Rachel slowly starts to realize this, but she uses that to justify her actions with Dexter. And the teenage me used to crave a guy like Dex, but now that I think about it, I would never want to carry on an affair with my best friend's future husband.
I honestly did not think I would enjoy this book from Darcy's point of view. ( I bought this second book the moment i finished the first when i was fifteen, and I could not get myself to read it until recently.) Needless to say, I loved it. Ethan was able to give insight to Darcy on how bad of a friend and person she was. After reading in her point of view, I did see how wrong it was of Rachel to betray her like she did. Regardless-- she was a bad friend, but Rachel did her wrong in the ultimate betrayal. I love how Darcy changes and becomes selfless rather than selfish. I also enjoyed seeing Ethan and her relationship go from bickering friends, to friends and then to loving each other--I was not expecting that to be honest, but it was a wonderful ending. However, it did bother me how Rachel was sorry for hurting her and not for what she did... but whatever.
Bottom line, if there was no second book, I would be on Team Rachel and Dex, but I am definitely more in love with Darcy and Ethan than I am the other pair.
