You know what I don’t understand about myself? I want to read The Night Circus really really badly but every time I order books from the library I end up not ordering it and I honestly don’t know why! Like seriously, why am I torturing myself??

ORDER IT

Seriously, do it. And know that the book you will get is a dozen times better than the book the blurb promises you.

Well I already think the blurb sounds awesome so now I’m even more excited about the book! Guys I’m going to (finally) order it!

I bet it’s your brain telling you that you need to get it from a bookstore instead cuz that one is a keeper. I’m telling you now. ;)

any advice for incoming college freshman?

sure why not!!!

  • first of all don’t buy books through your schools bookstore unless it’s absolutely necessary!!!! cheggalibris, or even amazon are some nice places where you can buy/rent textbooks for much cheaper. also here’s a post that has links to various places where you can possibly find online versions of textbooks
  • exercise!!! even if it’s just a walk around campus or some crunches or push ups in your dorm. you’re gonna be eating a lot of unhealthy food (at least at my school we just have a food court with a bunch of fast food restaurants) so if you don’t exercise you’re definitely gonna gain the dreaded freshman 15
  • show up to class early, at least for the first few weeks. maybe like 10-15 minutes early. your professors will take notice that you’re early and ready to learn and they’ll be impressed 
  • don’t skip class!!! i know there’s a lot more freedom in college than there is in high school and it makes it soooo easy to just skip class. the temptation is always there but trust me it pays off to just go to class. some of my classes last year offered extra credit in class and only people who showed up could get it. obviously it’s okay to skip class every once in a while if you need to but don’t make it a habit!
  • give yourself ‘you’ time. maybe every sunday night get some snacks and watch a movie or just do something relaxing!!! college can get really really stressful at times so every once in a whole you gotta just take a little time to unwind
  • make lots of friends, drink, party, have a good ass time, but don’t lose sight of why you’re at college in the first place which is to get an education. so have as much fun as you want just don’t let the fun take priority over your school work

except don’t break any laws if you are arrested you will be required to pay back all of your federal monies including loans and scholarships that you have recieved up to that point and tbh a beer just isn’t worth it

  • Only drink and party with people you enjoy and who enjoy you. They’ll keep you safe and it’s an altogether more fun experience. I got stuck with drinking and partying people who were the worst people I have ever met in my entire life during my first year of university, and it was pure hell.

Welcome to the world, my darlings! <3

Do you ever just stop and think

Would my favourite character actually like me as a person?

damn

I know my favourite characters wouldn’t, nor would I like them cuz I tend to favour despicable characters I wouldn’t want to be friends with in the first place. It’s never about favouring characters I want to befriend. It’s about favouring ones who are damn interesting.
