grumpy and gorgeous

twenty-something philadelphia-area online diarist comes home in the midst of a total breakdown and eventually makes good, to an electrifying soundtrack of '60s power pop.

it's the feel-good movie of the summer.

The only dreams I remember having this week:

  • A confrontation with my uncle who irl isn’t talking to me (I think?) after I sent a blunt text message saying back off w/r/t overstepping my mom’s authority/my dad’s wishes in this whole hospital drama (but like my text was desperate but polite whereas my mom’s ten minutes later was blunt as hell and then my uncle sent a really nasty text in response that I am still angry about even if she isn’t). In the dream he showed up for my dad’s surgery and then took me aside to say “You owe me an apology” and I lost my shit and started yelling at him in the lobby of the hospital “I am DONE with you DON’T TALK TO ME EVERY AGAIN I owe you NOTHING how DARE you say that to me get the FUCK out of my face”
  • I am writing for SNL and I’m trying to convince Aidy Bryant to get on board with this sketch I wrote where everyone says “You look like Adele” but she was like “But I play Adele on the show what is this arguing then” and I realized it probably wasn’t beneficial to make a joke out of how all fat girls get told they look like Adele when they don’t when Aidy Bryant is Adele for SNL

Part of me just always wants to be an asshole.

I stayed up relatively late with my mother the night before my father has surgery watching the outcome of the Scottish referendum. I never had a stake in the outcome, though I think fear-mongering aside there was a general consensus independence would create a lot of necessary but inane work like figuring out new licenses and passports and currency that would probably be a guaranteed disaster for any new government, but watching the results trickle in, even knowing a no was probably the best outcome, I found myself getting heavily invested in every yes that came in and shouting things like “Come on Scotland! You can do it! JOIN US! We did it and it’s been WONDERFUL” at the tv.

Tags: bbc world news was so anti-yes and pretending it wasn't tho and it was actually a little infurating to watch like come on at least give a more convincing act at being impartial here i felt bad for the yes campaign guys who had to come on and sit at the round table i also read an article early today looking for stuff about voting as it was happening and most of them were just man on the street stuff that i found fascinating like one woman was voting no because scotland gives less proportionally to research than the rest of the uk and as a scientist that had a direct impact on her job and one woman was like 83 and had lived in the us for 30 years at some point and was like 'america gets it. they're so confident!' so she was voting yes because she was like 'scotland's getting more confident' but one article i came across was just a despairing what-will-we-do-if-they-leave thing and part of it was like 'if scotland chooses independence cameron will be the most reviled' or not reviled but something like it 'minister since lord north lost america in 1783' and my verbatim reaction was to say outloud 'they're still angry about that?!'

I decided to look up all the professors I know at this college on rate my professors, and the Interpersonal Communications woman has the highest rating. wtf

Tags: all the reviews are from when she was teaching at the other local community college which i think she still does actually most of them are glowing because 'she's cool' and she never required them to do work but there are a few that sound familiar namely from a specific class where she was 20mins late every class for the first month or she didn't show at all and only gave out a syllabus when they complained to the DEAN and one student is like 'she likes to get on a soapbox and yell at you and then get really defensive of herself' which she has yet to do in my class but sounds totally like something she would do? idk i should give this woman the benefit of the doubt right?

When I missed my first day of class I emailed all my professors to explain why I could not attend and the only one to not reply was the professor for “Interpersonal Communications.” When I finally met her she thought she had emailed me back, and then claimed to have confused me with the other Alex in the class who had sent an email regarding something else that was then discussed in class (and also indirectly acknowledged she hadn’t replied to that Alex either).

On Monday I had to miss Interpersonal Communications and Brit lit to see my father in the hospital; my Brit lit professor emailed me back to offer a kind word and explain she completely understood why I could not attend.

I still haven’t received anything acknowledging my email from the Interpersonal Communications professor.

Tags: like why do i bother with this woman it's not even like i'm sending her emails that don't require replies i asked questions in both so i'm going into class blind i like to be prepared she is making it impossible
