So, I’ve been spending my free time, before school starts, catching up on my current favorite shows–Heroes, Prison Break, Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy. A colleague introduced me to Gossip Girl, one of the new shows in the U.S. If you enjoyed The O.C., I think you’re gonna get the hang of this new show. After all, it came from the same creator of the defunct t.v. show.
Anyhoo, the characters in Gossip Girl kinda reminds me of my high school, all the painful, awkward stuff in it. Not that I lived in the same high-class environment. But you get my drift.
Someday I’m gonna write something about my own high school life and it’s going to be painful, heartbreaking, funny, awkward and hopeful.
As Frank McCourt described in his brilliant book Angela’s Ashes:
“When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I managed to survive at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while.”
