FREUD

I have an obnoxious Great Books project due on Wednesday on Freud’s Civilization and its Discontents. While I’d like to bludgeon Freud over the head right now with a heavy object as he is the reason for my academic suffering right now, that might just affirm his idea of humans having a natural instinct of aggression – and I really do not want to give him the satisfaction.

While I don’t necessarily agree with much, if any of what Freud says and this book is filled with problems, it seems to make sense.  So, yeah.

While being forced to apply Freudian concepts to a children’s story probably made for the worst discussion to date in my current English class, other than that sexual blip in the Freudian road, it’s going to be okay.

So I’m going to sell my soul to Mortimer Adler and pray to the gods, (whom supposedly do not exist and are just man’s creation as to have purpose) that I get a good grade. Peace, yo.

back from the dead

So, internet, I am in fact still alive.  I’ve been drowning and AP class work and college applications and essay writing.  So blogging, a glamorous and somewhat time consuming past time has taken a back seat.  But I miss this little corner of the galaxy, I miss Amy (SO much) and I miss publishing words onto the page. . .screen.

Thanksgiving has come and gone, I’m trying to budget Christmas gifts for everyone and I feel like there are five billion things to do.  Let me just catch you up with some photos:

Blogging.

I haven’t blogged in weeks.  I haven’t said anything of dramatic importance, nothing to express a deep philosophical understanding of life’s true meaning, nor the scientific explanation of why koalas exist.  Ultimately, I’ve had nothing to say, so I’ve kept quiet.

Blogging has lost a touch of is sparkle.  I have no interest in typing superfluous sentences into my keyboard to appease… well, who is reading?  If you’ve visited this webpage before, you may be familiar with the fact that I want to be a writer.  I love words.

As a result of the neglect and slow, decrepit decline of my blogging, I realized that I didn’t have to blog.  In the back of my mind I had felt a strong sense of obligation to put anything on my blog.  Anything to sort of send a little wave out to the limitless expanse of internet that said, “I’m still here! Don’t forget about me!”  But that is no longer the case.

To repeat myself, I love words.  And in my endless love affair with them, I know that they have both the ability to mean everything, and the ability to mean nothing at all.  So why should I bore someone with something I hate, that I don’t mean, that I don’t find important, just to say it? I don’t wish to be held to the previous standard my blog has set.  The majority is cheery, bright, and honestly, irrelevant.  I would like to be associated with a higher level of thinking that is both impactful and relevant.  I want to be taken seriously.

Buh-bye, July

So I haven’t blogged the entire month of July.  Uh, let us just ignore this mishap and I’ll catch you up in the next couple of posts, shall we?

THIS WEEK #4

For some reason it’s been raining and cloudy quite a bit in the past week or so - not that I’m complaining. Like, at all.  But I mean, as much as I wish it was already fall, where is the sun?

lolita again

Here are  some things I really like right now so we're on the same page:

The Grand Budapest Hotel is absolutely magnificent.  Wes Anderson is an artist, and the sets and small details of the film are beyond amazing.  A must-see.

- This gif of a sunflower going through an MRI scanner.  Insane.

- I miss Amy tons.  She sent me the most amazing and wonderful birthday gift a month ago and I legitimately started crying because I loved it so much.  Lately she’s been jet-setting all over Europe and buying super pretty cigarettes - she needs to come visit me already.

- Speaking of Amy’s birthday gift to me, she bought me a version of the book Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov I’d been searching for for absolute ages.  I just found this top which reminds me of the cover.  Maybe I should buy these sunglasses too?

Ultimately, I’m gonna try and do interesting things worthy of blogging.  I’m still pale. Byeee.

It’s summer. It’s fine.

I’m one of those people that generally dislikes summer.  It’s always too hot, I don’t go anywhere exciting, and my friends are always off at camp.  Although, I have a new job at a    fro-yo shop (this could be bad for my health), college research to do, and friends to hang out with before they all leave me for the next couple of months.

Here’s my friend Justine being all adorable.

I also have a ton of reading to do and a to do list that just isn’t being accomplished. How has everyone’s summer been so far?
