Sylvia Plath Is A Buzz-Kill

(Also, I’m losing my mind. Somebody get me a cocktail or I might take a bunch of pills and hide in a hole in my basement. Because apparently that’s what great literature is all about.)

I recently finished The Bell Jar and although it’s an awesome book, you probably shouldn’t read it if you’re emotionally unstable. Nobody told me this so I’m telling you all.

I think I’m going crazy.

Granted, I’ve been there before, but I was totally handling my shit and feeling fine. Now I’m too scared to leave my apartment and paranoid about the government watching our every move.

(Klonopin can only go so far.)

So thanks a bunch, Sylvia. You’ve made me question my sanity and increase my vodka consumption. I hope you’re happy.

(NOTE: Ovens are for cookies and chicken breasts, not human heads. Just in case anyone was wondering.)

White Girls Be Like

Hey there, I'm Alanna. I can't give you my last name for legal reasons, but you probably won't pronounce it right anyway. This is a blog about various occurrences in my life and also some of my thoughts and feelings about things, otherwise known as "what white girls be like". It's true. We be like... "Cats, Lana del Rey, Coors Light, and Twitter". If you disagree, please comment and tell me to shut up. Otherwise, enjoy! :)

  1. Ah I felt the very same way after I finished that book. I actually finished it on the anniversary of her death and was convinced I would do something irrational.

  2. OK, it’s been half a lifetime ago since I read that book and now you’re making me want to read it again. Except now I’m a little bit afraid to do so. I’m easily impressionable. Now I have a child to raise. I ain’t got time for crazy. OK, now I’ve just talked myself out of reading it. Once my kid is raised and out of the house I”ll give it a crack again.

  3. You know, I’ve thought about this A LOT. I’ve read all of her stuff and even named my kid after the crazy broad. But, maybe she wasn’t crazy.Hear me out. Her husband married another lady after they divorced and SHE KILLED HERSELF THE SAME EXACT WAY. I think ol’ Ted was up to something… Maybe he was a sociopath and he turned her into a SOCIOPLATH… All I’m saying is think on it.
