“Blair, Serena, Nate, Dan, and Vanessa went off to live their lives. Now they’re coming home for the holidays. A lot can change in a few months… but some things never do. 

It finally happened: we went to college. We started over. No one knows who we’ve coveted, what we scored on the SATs, where our parents live, or when we became debaucherous. We’ve learned new things, made new friends, and maybe even met the loves of our lives. We’ve changed. Or at least, some of us have. But old habits are hard to break-especially when faced with your former besties and former flames. With everyone back in the city for the holidays, this break is guaranteed to be filled with makeups, breakups, and shakeups. Lucky for you, I’m here to report all the scandal as it happens.

I’m so close to the finish line, so close to the ending of school. God I’m relieved.

Honestly, the only thing that has kept me sane is the out of class reading that I did for class because I’m not one of those people who drowns in school work. I can’t be that person, it’s too stressful and then I don’t feel like I’ve done my best.

Anyway, since school is wrapping up, check out this weekly reading list right here.
