So I have had quite an intense week full of drama I couldn’t even begin to imagine would occur. Though I would like to explain what happened, I don’t particularly believe it to be something that I should discuss nor do I have the patience to write a whole tl;dr about it. Instead, I am going to use Gossip Girl as an analogy (I bet you’re all looking forward to this /sarcasm).
My week can be somewhat described by two episodes of Gossip Girl. The first is “You’ve Got Yale” from Season 2 when Blair decides to incite revenge against her English teacher, Rachel Carr, for “wronging” her (in other words, giving her a B on her paper). Blair sees nothing wrong with punishing Rachel, as it serves as justified payback. Then she ends up receiving a detention for her behaviour when Rachel notifies the Headmistress of that Blair has done, and believes that this sort of action against her is completely unjust, particularly since it jeopardizes her future at Yale.
fyi: I am a lot more like Blair than I like to admit (and not just for the fact that I like to imagine myself as Audrey Hepburn). I am also hoping those who happen to read this have at least a small amount of Gossip Girl knowledge.
The second episode is from the first season titled “School Lies”. Serena, Dan, Blair, Chuck and Nate, along with several other students, break into the school’s swimming pool during the night for some fun before things get out of hand and someone very nearly drowns. The school finds out about the incident and threatens the student responsible for breaking into the school with expulsion which causes them all to keep quiet about the true culprit. Dan however, feels uncomfortable covering for the others when his future is at stake and is conflicted about whether it would be better for him to only save himself.
fyi: I have been, and probably still am, in a situation very similar to Dan’s and quite frankly, it sucks beyond belief.
This all probably seemed rather vague and ridiculous but I was kind of conflicted about what I could/should share so for that, I do apologize. However, I did spend my entire (last) weekend watching Gossip Girl relentlessly so the analogies seemed appropriate.
n’t high school.
