I Can't.
Gossip Girl - Cecily von Ziegesar

This is a terrible book that is making my brain leak. I used to watch this show growing up and was always Team Blair. That said, the source material is awful and I can't force my eyes to sit through this. My brain at one point I think tried to punch my skull to let me know that if I didn't' change to a different book I was not going to like the consequences.


I DNFed "Gossip Girl" at 25 percent. At this point if you haven't grabbed me, I am not going to subject myself to finishing this book.

So far it just reads like a bunch of spoiled people who are obsessed with Serena and what she did that had her come back to New York and their private school. We are clued in pretty quickly to the major players (Blair, Nate, Chuck Bass, Serena) and then some random characters that I didn't really worry about. I stopped right around when Jenny and Dan Humphrey got introduced.

So the characters, not very developed. The author jumps around too much from sentence to sentence. I think we are supposed to think of Gossip Girl of being an omnipotent narrator, but it doesn't make a lot of sense with the scenes that are set. I think that it's supposed to be third person point of view but with asides from Gossip Girl and then the Gossip Girl POV if that makes sense? It doesn't does it? You can see why I had to stop reading this mess. 


The writing is not good. The way that the author chose to frame things is making my eye twitch. You can just say that someone turned red, or smelled like candy, or had an emerald cuff link. Instead it's Nate turned as red as the Louis the 14th chaise that he stood near. Or Serena smelled like cotton candy, lily of the valley, and baby powder, but expensive. I mean what the hell. 


The flow is awful. 

The book takes place in New York but so far we have just been in people's fancy apartments. I honestly don't care if Blair finds out or anything. I am maybe shaking my head that they are trying to reboot Gossip Girl and am shuddering about how that is going to look.

Reading progress update: I've read 7%.
Gossip Girl - Cecily von Ziegesar

Oh God. I can't. The writing. The writing is so so so bad.


“Who cares?” Blair said, stamping her foot. She was wearing her new black ballet flats. Very bow-tie proper preppy, which she could get away with because she could change her mind in an instant and put on her trashy, pointed, knee-high boots and that sexy metallic skirt her mother hated. Poof—rock star sex kitten. Meow.


There's too many things happening in these sentences. 


"Nate turned redder than the upholstery on the eighteenth-century French chaise next to him."


Can you just say that Nate turned red???


“Absolutely,” Cyrus Rose said. He clasped Nate’s shoulder with a fleshy hand. Around his wrist was one of those gold Cartier cuff bracelets that you screw on and never take off—very popular in the 1980s and not so popular now, unless you’ve actually bought into that whole ’80s revival thing. Hello?"


Seriously you get confused about who is speaking. The Gossip Girl or is it Blair?


"They were like the emeralds in the cufflinks her father wore with his tux when he went to the opera."

Brain shorts out.

Technology addiction is a growing issue amongst young adults and adolescents. Nowadays, it’s nearly impossible to remove ourselves from screens. It can be extremely difficult to perceive when exactly the line is crossed from typical technology use into a full blown technology addiction. In this blog, we’ll discuss what technology addiction in young adults looks like, its effects on young people, and potential treatment options.


What does technology addiction in young adults look like?


An addiction is a compulsive behavior with ongoing negative effects and consequences that impacts an individual’s ability to live their everyday life. When a teen or young adult is addicted to technology, it affect them on a social, behavioral and physical level.  


  • Social and Behavioral Effects

The majority of today’s adolescents and young adults use social media as a means to communicate with one another. On Instagram and Facebook, they are posting images of themselves and status updates where they seek “likes” and “follows” from their peers. Online, you can be anyone you wish to be. You can develop a persona completely different from who you actually are and form pseudo relationships with people you’ve never met in real life. The online world can give young people a false sense of belonging that can wreak havoc on their interpersonal communication skills away from their phones and computers.


If technology addicted adolescents and young adults communicate with their friends solely online, it doesn’t allow time for them to practice social skills in the outside world. They feel awkward in real life conversation and don’t engage with others.

The anonymity of the online world also promotes negative behaviors that can go completely unchecked. You can be as aggressive as you want and engage in cyberbullying without any consequences.  


  • Physical Effects

When you’re playing video games or when someone “likes” your Instagram post, your brain can release a chemical called “dopamine” associated with feelings of pleasure and happiness. For individuals who are addicted to technology, their bodies get used to a certain level of dopamine at all times. It becomes the new normal for them. In fact, studies have shown that this neurological effect is similar to what is seen in drug addicts and gambling addicts.


Treatment For Technology Addiction


Unfortunately, there is no easy “fix” for technology addiction. However, there are steps we can take to prevent technology addiction from accelerating and addicted individuals can create ways to cope with their addiction.


If you’re concerned that a technology addiction habit might form for you or your child, it’s important to:

  1. Educate yourself about tech addiction and build awareness of negative habits forming.
  2. Be involved in your child’s technology use as early as possible.


If you have a young adult who has already formed negative habits related to technology addiction, Trails Momentum can be a good option for your family.


Technology Addiction Treatment at Trails Momentum


Trails Momentum is a young adult wilderness therapy program for young men and women ages 18-25. From the very beginning of their time at the program, students are completely removed from all technology use. We replace the need for technology with adventure activities and being out in the natural world. Students are away from the distractions and pressure that comes from social media and video games. They are supported on a daily basis by skilled staff members and are introduced to a whole new environment that creates many of the same neurological reactions as technology.

Throughout their time at Trails Momentum, students become aware of the effects technology once had on them and form new, positive hobbies that replace their technology use. Whether we like it or not, technology is unavoidable in our society. Because of this, we help students build an awareness of negative patterns technology use may create for them and form a plan to address the issue if it goes too far.

24 Festive Tasks - International Day of Tolerance Book
Just Mercy (Adapted for Young Adults): A True Story of the Fight for Justice - Bryan Stevenson

Book:  Read any fiction/non-fiction about tolerance or a book that’s outside your normal comfort zone.  (Tolerance can encompass anything you generally struggle with, be it sentient or not.) OR Read a book set in Paris.



Just Mercy is a book by Bryan Stevenson, a lawyer who works to help those most hurt by the failures in the justice system. He details some of the many terrible injustices he has come across during his career and advocates for tolerance and understanding for the people who have been caught up in terrible situations and failed repeatedly by everyone around them. I'm using it for this square.
