I like checking days off a calendar — 151 days crossed and nothing truly horrible has happened. 152 and the world isn’t ruined. 153 and I haven’t destroyed anyone. 154 and no one really hates me.

hueyhernandez said: Did you enjoy electric kook aid acid test? I read it senior year in high school and I found it to be boring

i really did enjoy it! i will admit, for the first ~1/3, i had some trouble getting in to it, which was probably due to the fact that i didn’t have time to read more than a chapter or two at once. but i read the whole second half in one sitting, and that made it a lot more enjoyable, as i was really able to stay in the vibe!
