  • Y-You're back?!?!?

  • personally I've always preferred Hobbes as a philosopher, I must say. But Locke was a fine fellow as well :D

  • Your username is amazing! *Follows.*

  • Which do you connect deeper with: comedy or tragedy? It is an interesting question to ponder. I, personally, have always considered comedy to be the true reflection of reality and the human condition.

    Love I personally hate the term 'human condition' and avoid such questions, which seem silly :p

    Holysocks I think comedy as well... Tragedy is very dramatic most times, and only reflects weird relationships with odd people. I'm Not sure if that made sense.

  • I will have to do two posts, to make up for lost posting!

  • Ah! I was doing homework and forgot to post yesterday, which was twenty three minutes ago.

  • Are you scared of freedom? Most people would instantly answer no, but do we truly understand what total, uninhibited freedom is? When faced with the unlimited nature of our true powers, I think humans shy away from embracing their full potential.

  • Thanks for the follow! :D

    JohnLocke1 You're welcome, my friend!

  • When I have a boring day, I will just post random snippets of my writing to fulfill my resolution.

    This is from a short story:

    “This is why I want to live in a small town,” I said. “Where nothing changes.”

    “Yeah…” my father said with a slight, weakened smile. Then, he faltered. With his small hesitation of step and speech, he and I both experienced a moment of eternity. We viewed it, we comprehended it, and, in an act of disheartening humility, we hailed to it.

    “Everything changes, son,” my father mumbled.

    We were both children after his words, lost in this world and afraid of time. I could not see his eyes, but I knew that they would betray his sadness at the loss of a shard of innocence.

  • From a novel I'm writing:

    “Am I a good boyfriend?” Pierre asked, nearly choking on his food.

    “The best,” I said. “We do nothing but eat food, watch movies and play video games.”

    SARAHJO I dream of finding a love like this. <3

  • Finding the perfect rhythm for each individual story is essential. Sometimes, you have to push through awful, awful writing, before you finally emerge through the mud, fully transformed into the amazing writer you were meant to be.

  • I engaged in an interesting conversation today with my classmates regarding moral relativism and moral absolutism. I will never cease to be amazed by how differently human beings can think from each other regarding morals.

  • To keep myself latched onto my New Year's Resolution to write more and use this website more, I am going to try to post at least once per day. Let's do this, my friends.

  • I love when I secretly quote my writing around my friends. When they are impressed, I always feel like a superhero in disguise.

I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.
