I didn’t have to read The Great Gatsby for any classes in school, and I instead approached it on my own terms. I love it. But a lot of people who had it as assigned reading really loathe it. I don’t blame them, but I do wish people would re-read it with fresh eyes

I had it as assigned reading and thought it was okay. Didn't blow me out of the water but I definitely didn't hate it.

I'm not trying to get political, but all the anti-Trump humor is gonna be REALLY dated in a few years.

The real problem with president jokes are that they're all focused on the same 5 or 6 people. Like why do Millard Fillmore or Rutherford B. Hayes get a free pass? Where's their Comedy Central roasts?

then you should probably buy a new computer
I can't get a computer whenever I want because I'm disabled and don't work, so I'm financially dependent on my parents, who are both retired. I'm a bit limited budget-wise.

Would your parents be willing to get you a new computer if one day it decides not to turn on?

If that's the case, VGA, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

1. Great Gatsby is bad because it's too old to possibly be good.

2. Trump jokes aren't going to become dated, the hate is at another level entirely and it'll only slowdown but never end. Nobody had this kind of undying spite for Bill or even Obama, so that's why you don't see anything about them much. I mean, the media is liberal so you wouldn't see it about most of them anyway. But Bush gets off scottfree, dismissed mostly as just an idiot (aside from conspiracy theorists who blame him for orchestrating 9/11, even though he can't even speak without jumbling up his words lmao).

3. Slowly buy the parts for a new computer over time to keep cost down. By time your computer breaks you have a new ones.
