Hi humans. Just a warning; my laptops’ space bar broke and I have to take it in, so i’m not sure how long, if any, of my blogging schedule will be affected. Also, I’m styonedish by prescription med my doctor instis I take even though it had side effects.
Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell, 11/12
Spellcheck says fangirl isn’t a word, what.
Rainbow Rowell stole from my diaries. Also, pretty sure ‘Rainbow’ is a pseudonym. So’s mine; can you tell?
I have an insane mom. I write constantly, or did, at any rate. College is hard for me. I’ve spent a lot of time in my dorm or at the library.
Cath has an insane dad. She has a hard time during her 1st semester in college. She spends a lot of time in her dorm room or at the library.
The 2nd half/ semester was romantically inclined. Like Carrie Fisher’s diary.
Yet, something feels hollow. It could be post-book greif. I related on every level. But what if I read this before I went to college? How would it have affected me then?
Everything is breezy. There’s some pretty heavy stuff; mental health, 1st time in college, estranged mom, etc. Yet none of it sinks deep. It’s like reading a bunch of essay intros, you know what it’s about, but you’re not filled up on the topic.
I recommend it for anyone in, bound for, or thinking about college. Have you read it? Did the timing (before, after, during) affect the way you thought about it?
