My Plans for the Future Are Not Realistic

I have already mentioned earlier today that I essentially have no life goals. This is obviously untrue, as if it was, I would be like Beth from Little Women, who loses the will to live because she has no definitive plans for the future like her sisters and succumbs to the scarlet fever she had five years previously. Did a lot of scientific research for that, did you, Louisa May Alcott? I think not. Continue reading

Too. Much. My Brain Hurts.

Today, during the time when I would normally make an update on the blog, I read Little Women. Now, I don’t mean that I read the entire book, because I started it yesterday. That having been said, I did read approximately 200 words of the 264 page novel, so I might as well have read the whole thing. In three hours. Continue reading

Depressing = Literary Gold

I’m not sure why people tend to think that the more depressing a novel is, the better it is. Because that’s definitely not true. I mean, don’t get me wrong, some books that are horrendously depressing are indeed very well written. I think The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and Cereus Blooms at Night are proof of that. Probably also The English Patient. But that does not mean, however, that every sad book ever written is literary gold. Continue reading

Literary Cruelty is the Best!

I have learned many things in my literary experiences at university. Well, I’ve learned some things, and most of them have to do with long-winded, super confusing literary scholars like Bhabha and Spivak. Don’t ever read that. Trust me, it’s not worth it and you definitely won’t understand. Wikipedia is your best friend. Continue reading
