My idea of light reading before bed:
The Poetics by Aristotle… as I angrily stare at my book because the translator got “hamartia” wrong again. I actually have a really great version though, but yeah, The Poetics is great for my current obsession with Titus Andronicus.
soulwithoutbody replied to your post: The Tao of Emerson (Richard Grossman) You should read Walden by Henry David Thoreau. It isn’t Tao oriented but oh my lord it is insightful. I LOVE Walden! I am so happy you do too! I have this beat up old copy that I’ve highlighted to death and I’ve also written all over it so I need a new copy… thanks for reminding me of that! haha. Walden...
One great thing about Emerson:
All throughout his life he faced the deaths of those closest to him. His father died when he was just eight years old, his first wife died just two years after they were married, and his first son died at age six. He often referred to Henry David Thoreau as his best friend, Emerson practically mentored him, and then Thoreau also passed away at a young age… as did Nathaniel Hawthorne and...
The Tao of Emerson (Richard Grossman)
I was cruisin’ around Amazon, searching for some books, and found this little gem! I’ve always been amazed at how similar Ralph Waldo Emerson’s views on spirituality are with those of Eastern thought. I read some reviews on this book and it sounds promising so I ordered it! If any of you lovely people have ever come across it and read it send me a message! Needless to say, as a...
My family's actions depress me.
I don’t need to be this stressed out over other people’s actions. It is not fair that I have to be the sole voice of reason here. They are so oblivious to how much damage they are doing to themselves and to those who live with them. I can’t handle this much anxiety. It is never my own and I sometimes wish it was. It would be more acceptable. I have school and work and student...
Anonymous asked: There's a movie called "Titus" starring Anthony Hopkins, based on Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus. Twas made in 1999. I haven't seen it, but it's on my "to watch" list. It received the "Critic's Pick" from the New York Times, so that should count for something...
There is a Titus Andronicus movie?
Is it any good? Although most movies based on Shakespeare’s plays have been shit.
How can anyone make it through an entire Republican debate without becoming infuriated.

I could just cry. The amount of work I am going to be doing is insane. I am taking 18 credits (four English classes, one Education class which requires field work experience, and one Gen-Ed Oceanography class) and I am also going to be working every day. I hope I can do it man. I’m scared but I am also excited about all of the readings… mostly scared though.

I started watching Misfits last week.
It’s pretty damn awesome. I’m really glad Tumblr is so in love with it or I might have never started watching it. I know all of you guys watch it so I won’t even ask haha.
