you story

Since Drake couldn’t keep his mouth shut and went ahead and told Bertrand about the child I wonder if Bertrand will go after her.

Savannah clearly didn’t want him to know but here is the thing… When Drake was confronting him, Bertrand was clearly upset about the last time he spoke to Savannah and said he could not contact her after that. That he tried. That she had misunderstood.

And you know what, I actually believe him?

I can so imagine Bertrand the day after not having a clue to what to say and when he does talk to her he messes it up so spectacularly. Can you imagine Bertrand talking about feelings? No.

It would be a train wreck.

In my mind there is probably some misguided notion of him being ‘too old’ (though we still have no idea how old he is) or the fact that house Beaumont was going into financial ruin. (which I’m pretty sure was already happening before the baby.)

So I’m hoping we’ll get to see how that turns out because I don’t really see a reason for MC to be there when Bertrand talks to Savannah. Not that it ever stopped us before.

why you should NEVER skip class in college

ok story time.

so my ethics & morals philosophy class has about 45 students. however, on a typical day only the same 17 of us show up. on rare occasion a group of 5 others will show up, and when they do it’s clear that they didn’t do the reading and don’t care about the class because they just talk and use their phone all class. now this really started to piss of my teacher. so my teacher decided that at the start of each class we will have a mini extra credit assignment: 1 point for just showing up and putting your name on it, 3 points for writing a few sentences that “prove that we did the reading”. he’s asking us to not tell any of the people who don’t show up about these to wait and see if they figure it out one day if they actually show up to class. and here’s the thing: there’s so little assignments in the class that if we do all of the extra credit assignments our grades will go up by two whole letter grades. JUST FOR SHOWING UP.

moral of the story: unless you got a damn good excuse, ALWAYS SHOW UP TO CLASS


i feel like i need to add: this is extra credit. it’s not like the teacher is punishing the people who don’t show up, they aren’t going to get failing grades or anything, they just aren’t getting the opportunity to get extra credit to raise their gpa. it’s simply a way to say thank you to the students who actually show up and do the homework, he’s not punishing the other students in any way. 

also, when i mean they don’t show up i mean they literally never show up. some people have only shown up once since august. there’s a difference between missing a week or two because something happened and not showing up at all for 3 months yet still being enrolled in the class. and it’s a philosophy class so a lot of the test is based on the lectures and our class discussions. there’s no slides or anything he posts online so there’s no way for them to know what we’re doing in class other than the syllabus. 

Meeting you was like a breath of fresh air in a time that I was drowning.

You came to me unexpectedly and took the water out of my lungs allowing me to breathe again.

Although you had frayed edges and dangerous ways, you intrigued me like no other.

You were broken too, but I was there for you in times of need.

You engulfed me in your words and held me close by

But in the end, I was just another cigarette to you -

You threw me away with ease and lit up the next one.

but in the end, you’re still everything i want even if i have someone who’s treating me better than you ever will or did.
