So, guess who gets to road trip it down to Idaho to see Gloria Steinem speak at the University of Idaho? This feminist! There are no words to describe how ecstatic I am that Gloria Steinem will be speaking in the Pacific Northwest (not to mention IDAHO). This is what I expected from college- finding a group of people I can relate to and doing stuff that’s out of the ordinary.It’s such an exhilarating feeling!
Also, this Friday Perks of Being a Wallflower comes out in theaters. I am SUPER SUPER HYPED about this movie. I feel like watching it will transport me back to Lipkin’s classroom- a magical space that fueled my growth as a person and as a lover of literature. Even though I have wonderful English professors this year, I miss Lipkin’s aura. If there was one person that brought out the best in me, it was him. I really miss that, that feeling of not wanting to disappoint. I can’t explain what he brought out in me, but I feel like watching this movie will allow me to revisit that- whatever that was.
