(via google images)

Take a moment and think about a person that you admire greatly–in the role-model-kind-of-way. Now think back and remember what they attribute their success to. Done? Great. Every single role model that I have had including my father have one thing in common, they love books.

Before watching that show that day, I had always found Marya to be the hotter one between the two. But I changed my mind. Avril was sharp, intelligent and witty on the show.
