The Babysitters Club Shaped my Childhood…. and Possibly Yours

Comments 6 Standard

Hello friends, today I want to tell you a story. Get your snacks ready, we’re going to be talking about The Babysitters Club.

The Babysitters Club has been rebooted by Netflix and I’m here for it. Growing up, I LOVED reading The Babysitters Club. Every time my mom would take me to the library, those were the books I’d look for. It’s one of, if not the, first book series I started collecting.

My old library used to have a cart near the back where they would sell books for 50 cents. My mom would let me buy two a week on the condition that I would finish them before buying more. I always finished them within the week.

My goal was to read every one of those books. I honestly don’t remember if I ever did, but I’m sure I got pretty close. I was obsessed with the series and it taught me a lot growing up.

Wow it’s been a while since I did one of these. My friends and I have been using the Rave app to watch Netflix shows and movies together while social distancing. It’s been a fun way to de-stress, especially with everything going on.

My friends and I actually watched the whole season the first week it came out but then things happened and I couldn’t bring myself to write. It was honestly a struggle to do anything during that time period. Life still feels pretty surreal right now.

Grown-ish Season 3 Episode 5 (Recap + Discussion)

Comments 5 Standard

This week was so tough, y’all. I’m not talking about the usual toughness where I’m complaining about how much I have to read in such a short time. I’m talking about all those readings, plus two essays, and a homework assignment that I forgot until two hours before it was due. I’m also running for my school’s campus governor, so add a campaign to that. Did I mention that I’m going to be in my organization’s pageant? Yeah, I’m doing way too much right now.

On the other hand, Grownish actually wasn’t doing the absolute most on Thursday. It was a pretty real episode and I’m lowkey hurt by how it ended.

So, let’s get into this.
