Transitioning from a long winter break to a big fat chunk of spring classes-
I feel like Miss Yukari on her first day:
Last night I was once again curling around the anxious concept that I carry no weight in this tremendous scheme; recognizing my eternal anonymity.
I had a dream this morning where I had to move somewhere urgently, and I had only a limited time to collect all of my things. I just kept finding more to take, stressing over how to pack; my clothes, my travel souvenirs, sketchbooks, music, letters, electronics, baby photos.. Acting like my house was going to burn down. Ransacking my mind to make sure I wasn’t losing anything.
And the dream kept extending itself in that funny way.. As I was too occupied collecting everything I could think of to preserve, I never even got to leave.
I woke up wondering where I was going.
So, I love Skins. I wish they wouldn’t make an American version of Skins though - it just doesn’t seem right to me.
Agreed!! The mistake they’re making is copying UK’s season 1. The adaptation is missing the rich subtlety of the original. Also, the original actors are their characters and it’s like no one can ever be that character ever again. Rophy Does sums it up so well. For me Season 5 has already beaten US-Skins to death with its epic greatness. And it’s only on episode two.
