    Ughhh, as jack said, she’s either sweating school or trying to help others out by analyzing THEIR problems. Bernice doesn’t take time for herself. Bern, it’s OK to take some “me” time. You don’t have to over-achieve all the time.

    So far this has been a long arc to nowhere. Tiffany has stalled on her quest for maturity, Gunther and Bets have hung a “Do Not Disturb” sign on their hide-a-way, and Luann is still treading water in her pool of life.

    Sort of rare to see a World History (or even Western History) book. More common when I started teaching. Now they tend to be World Civilization or Western Civilization. ‘History’ has become associated with an emphasis on wars and rulers (and in the case of Western History read ‘dead white men’). There came a revolution in thinking – literature, music, architecture, philosophy and other forms of culture are part of the human story… Oh, yeah, and not every important person is white and half the world isn’t male. So, change from history courses to civilization courses. Of course, some publishers just retitled the same book as Western Civilization rather than Western History. (And don’t get me started on fact all historians have a narrow field of expertise. Out of our niche we can be dumb. Western Civ. text gets three authors (so you don’t have to split royalties too far) and each does great in his/her niche – but can be huge errors when you get them writing outside their field of expertise. Kept a list for a while of errors I found in college textbooks.)

    Maybe a novel would be better. Like, citing the greatest example among the strips, “War and Peace”… I really hope Luann comes to Bernice’s room and drags her on some weird/hilarious adventure with Tara and Dez. But the fact that Bernice seems unable to find a positive hobby on her own, one that cheers her up and is unrelated to studying, is sad.

    This has been so INCREDIBLY BORING. The Ben character is boring. He needs to be just abandoned altogether. Maybe him and the kid could get hit by a bus? Jack is REALLY boring. I am convinced he doesn’t have any attraction to girls at all. He’s like a big muscle bound girlfriend to all these characters. I liked the idea of Bernice being more outgoing but now she’s boring again. It’s like the last two weeks have been an exercise in being mediocre. Not interesting at all. The only reason I keep looking at it is I keep thinking they have to go SOMEWHERE with SOMETHING, but noooo they just keep up with the same bland storylines. Storylines that never finish by the way. I need to google G&K and see if they look as boring as their comic strip.

    Actually the idea of reading a college history book with all its illustrations and ideas seems a great way to get one’s mind off of an existing stress, at least to this nerd. However it still will not help Bernice get rid of the source of her anxiety over meeting her brother. I am waiting to see how the story is brought to that point, who is involved, and will it happen this week, if at all.

    So, all of last week was more treading water. Bernice has a serious problem… something that makes her hide behind garbage bins, grimacing, when she sees a random male person walking by. She’s got issues (7 of them), and reading a history book ain’t gonna fix a thing.

    And, as much as we wished that Jack could be someone to confide with, that was a bust. His only advice was “exercise” and she’s not even doing that. And now she gets to read all about Nero, or Cromwell, or Napoleon, all while her 7 issues continue to fester. Disappointed in her, and the meandering direction of this “arc”.

    Well this is going nowhere slowly. All that innuendo and exercise talk from last week just gone. Ben’s practically gone. Back to books.

    She opens it up to realize the pages have been glued shut and the interior was hollowed out containing a stash of cash. Either that or every page has a picture reminding her of her brother or Jack.

    For a supposedly temporary stint at the DeGroots, she is pretty settled in. After all, who would unpack books and set them up in a bookcase? I think most people would leave them in the box until they find a more permanent residence.
