Priorities

So I missed Key's sex face*, I mean, performance with BoA for school. Thank goodness for the internet.

I’ve kind of gotten a life. Instead of reading and writing and stalking watching Key on the internet, I do homework all the time. Now that I think about it, I actually don’t have a life. I probably never will.

There are bloggers out there who care about how many people read their writing. I’m one of them. That’s not to say that views and subscribers are the only things I care about – no, I’m not that shallow – but it’s nice to receive feedback on the book reviews/thoughts on pop/deepest secrets of my life I’ve put on the internet. With my inactivity one can assume that the hits and comments have decreased due to not posting anything for a long time.

More importantly, blogging allows me to express my thoughts and ideas. I feel as if maintaining this blog has benefited me as a person overall. Totally cliche, yet totally true.

So why am I putting school before my blog? Besides not wanting to get kicked out of the house, I know that an education is what will get me where I want to be, whether it be living life as a professor/novelist or eventually going to law school and becoming a lawyer. Essentially, I think it would be nice to have some form of an income when I’m an adult so I can, you know, survive.

Reading this over I feel like I’ve given the vibe that I’m abandoning this blog. Well, I’m not, and hopefully I never will. This is just a “heads-up to all my readers sorry for being so busy and not posting if anyone even cares” post. In fact I have several ideas for potential posts floating around in my head, but because I’m slow I like taking the time and exerting the effort to make my posts the best that they can be, I cannot actually place my ideas onto online paper yet.

Look, a distraction!

I intended to post some Key pics so that people would forgive me. Then I realized a lot of people who read this blog don't know who Key is. Oh well.

How important is blogging to you? What would you place before it? If you don’t blog, how about school? If you don’t go to school, and you don’t blog, do you work? If you don’t work… okay, I have homework to do. Talk to you guys later!

*here’s his performance with BoA. 0:16-0:19… words fail me.

A Little Break

My new best friend.

Hi guys!

This is just a filler an update that I’ll be gone for about a week and a half so I can focus on my upcoming SAT and AP World History exam. During this time I probably won’t post anything besides maybe a book review or two, possibly something random. My goal is to stay away from Facebook, WordPress, and other online distractions so that I can perform well on these tests. Wish me luck!

... trust me. I'll need it.

I’m Actually Busy? And Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 116”

This is a filler update on my life. Lately, I’ve been extraordinarily occupied with tennis, homework, exams, SAT prep, AP test prep, volunteering, searching for a job, etc. It’s sad to see my reading time/time wasted ogling researching Key decrease to the point where I can’t even post regularly like I have been. Therefore, I thought that this random post was necessary.

A few days ago we were going over Shakespearean poetry in English class. This particular sonnet struck my fancy, or, as normal people would say, I took a liking to it. It really brings out the romantic in me, which has been missing lately due to an increased amount of cynicism (life is pointless. ha ha. just kidding):

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

–  “Sonnet 116”, William Shakespeare.

Love it. The way Shakespeare forms complex and meaningful thoughts in such a beautiful way with a set structure is just superb. I hope one day to experience a love of this depth and nature – I guess that’s one of the things that makes life worth living.

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great week! I updated my contact information so people can send me messages through a form instead of going through the hassle of trying to reach me through Goodreads. Send me something nice, if you know what I mean (;
