Description:

Have you ever pretended to be super happy for your BFF when they win an award when, really, you just wanted to rip it out of their undeserving, ungrateful, lazy… We’ll stop before we take it too far. In A Separate Peace by John Knowles, Gene has trouble with the fact that his friend Phineas is always in the limelight—and he takes some pretty extreme actions to try to make up for it. Talk about jealousy issues. This video will prompt you to think about the relationship between our own successes and how we view others’ accomplishments. Just promise us you’ll stop having revenge fantasies about stabbing your friend with a plastic crown after losing the Homecoming Queen title to her last year. Step. Away. From. The. Tiara.
