the best metaphor of my life
current study situation
who’s laying in bed at 2:38 in the afternoon, worthless bums
Some kid just told me he thought ebola was spanish for grandma
continuing in the pattern of watching the onscreen adaptation of every single book I’ve read this summer haha… finally got to watch Gone Girl!
what actually scares me the most about this particular story (even while I was reading it, moreso while I was watching it) was how much I could see myself in Amy: literally - according to the friends I watched the movie with - an antagonist/”crazy bitch” scarier than the one in Annabelle (i.e. the Conjuring sequel… that’s a demon-possessed doll, fyi).
what i couldn’t stop thinking of was one of my interviews from my pledge bros last year; she asked me: “if you found out your boyfriend was cheating on you, what would you do?” or “would you break up with him” or something along those lines. but my exact answer was, no joke: “I’d pretend like everything was okay while silently plotting my revenge and then strike and ruin his life.” this was before I’d even heard of Gone Girl! it was funny and lighthearted to us at the time, but watching the movie yesterday kind of opened my eyes to the type of person I might be and it kind of scares me.
reminds of that quote: “we stopped checking for monsters under the bed when we realize they are inside us.” but hope hope hope that if I ignore it long enough, that monster will never come out.
this girl is dope! love her facial expressions haha
