See Fangirl always amazed me because it felt like Rainbow Rowell had to have been watching my life to write it. Anxiety ridden girl goes to college and regularly considers quitting. Keeps a jar of peanut butter to get herself through. Takes fiction writing and has trouble finding an original idea to submit to her kickass advisor who writes amazing stuff. Deals with feelings for cute farmboy named Levi who regularly comes over to see her roommate. Buries self in fanfiction to survive and writes gay stories about blonde innocent boys falling for broody enemies after months of hating each other. Has a writing partner and best friend who just wants to grow up and move away from all that is childish. Like really Rowell, were you not videotaping my life?
They only thing that never fit was Reagan… I never had a Reagan.
Until I moved into my new dorm yesterday where I thought I’d be living by myself…. And my roommate is this confident and unconventionally pretty girl who smokes and has talked about making me go to bars with her and dragged me to the cafeteria in spite of how scared I was to do something wrong. And we sat down at one of the tables with our food and I started to relax. And she looks around at the other people and says “I love people watching”.
Oh my god I have my Reagan.
