OLS is serious business, friends.
I suffer from this as well. I haven’t found any great coping mechanisms yet. Sigh…
Love the video!!
lololol I couldn’t claim to have it as I’m not old enough or… ahem wise with age to be eligible for contraction. HOWEVER. I think it’s just these characters make you want to *eyeroll* with the dramatics. At least, I find myself doing that a lot for the same reasons you think you have OLS. So maybe… you’re not that old xD

That’s what I like to hear! Yeah!
Oh, honey… it happens to the best of us!
p.s. love the Ben Lee music.
LOL I think I’ve had OLS for the past 10 years. What are we going to think in 10, 20, or 30 years?!?!
This is so cute. Thanks for sharing.
We must be reading the same book…I’m totally feeling all of these things with the one I’m reading right now. Unfortunately, I don’t know any solutions. I can’t leave YA either. You should do a follow up with the ideas you get because I’d like to know what they are.
OMG I feel you on the OLS. SO MUCH!! I often eyeroll. However, I don’t really HAVE to like the character to like the book depending on the rest of the book. Sometimes I like an unlikeable character because I can relate. I don’t know how to handle the OLS-ish type stuff that bothers me about books though. I feel like teen Jamie wouldn’t be annoyed about much of it. SIGH.
Ha! I definitely suffer from this too! I can’t count the times I’ve thought “This girl should go see her counselor/mom/older sister”!
When it really is characters being young and unexperienced, I don’t mind it too much; often the characters will learn from it and that’s what makes the book! What I hate is when this is used as a plot device; “we could tell the police this serial killer is hiding in the closet, but then the book wouldn’t last more than 20 pages so let’s just worry quietly about it”. Aargh!
Embrace it, honey. Embrace it.
Oh, that was just so cute!! How do you make videos? I always thought it must be time consuming, but honestly, yours look like such FUN! It was so cute! Put a smile on my face. And being around Southern people, I hear the “oh honey”, and “young lady”. A lot. Just a bit of culture. ;D But…it can sound old. Ah, the little things of native language.
I must have this really bad because I find myself thinking this not just when reading but when I see all the college kids who live in my building!
Oh man! This is so me! It’s always the moment when the heroine is doing something I DISAPPROVE of and I start mothering her to pieces. As if I can really change the story or something. LOL.
This is the cutest video! Is it awful that I pretty much feel like you do about the things you’ve mentioned in your video? I’m not sure what the right cure is – but I’m just learning to accept it. Haha.
