Remember when you barely knew how to read, Santa still existed and life was simple? Those were the days. There are some similarities between then and now, though. You still wear pajamas in public. You still need your mom when you can’t handle your life. You can pretty much puke anywhere and no one minds too much. It hasn’t changed a lot, so why not bring back some more #TBTs? We have for you the 7 books you read as a kid, just updated a little bit to your life as a college student.
7.) Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Exam:
“I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there’s gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the longboard and by mistake I dropped my phone in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day to take an ECON103 exam.” Could this be any more relevant with finals coming up?
6.) Anne of Green Street:
“It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly about what you’re going to get to eat on Green Street.” Spoiler: she chooses Chipotle and stays in line for the rest of the book.
5.) The Tale of Desperate Hoes:
“There is nothing sweeter in this sad world than the sound of someone you love calling your not name.” After a night of Red Lion, the plot of it really starts to apply to our own lives.
4.) Tales of a Fifth Year Nothing:
“You really ate your roommate’s food?” This is one of the sadder books which our parents warned us about when we were in our middle school’s principal’s office.
3.) Goodnight Fratboy:
“Goodnight little frat house. And goodnight frat mouse. Goodnight Busch. And goodnight kush. Goodnight Girl I Don’t Know. Goodnight, bro. And goodnight to the house mom whispering ‘hush.’ Goodnight bars. Goodnight smelly air. Goodnight noises everywhere.”
2.) Make Way for Tour Groups:
“One day seniors in high school decided they’d like to take a trip to see what the rest of the campus was like, further on. So off they set.” *Sigh* doesn’t it take you back to when you were such an innocent child?
1.) The Very Hungry Stoner:
“On Saturday after a long smoke, he ate through one piece of chocolate cake, one ice-cream cone from the IKE, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one Fat Sandwich, one slice of Antonio’s, one Joe’s half-price burger, one sausage, one cupcake, and one slice of watermelon from the communal refrigerator.”
Now that you’ve basically read seven whole books, take a break! You’ve done so much work today! You deserve a Netflix break.
