The KKK is ecstatic (they endorsed Trump, meaning they felt the words, attitudes and policies of Trump were in line with the goals of white supremacy), Al Qaeda and ISIS are rejoicing on social media, civil rights leaders are devastated, minorities and LGBT persons are terrified, violence...
PSA: The plot of a dashing young hero who turns out to be exceptionally powerful with magic and skilled at arms being the Chosen One to face off against the Dark Lord is not derivative of Tolkien. That plot appears nowhere in The Lord of the Rings. Frodo is not the Chosen One. Frodo, the main...
People are far too interested in what the other says, rather than what the other intends. I see this play out everywhere, be it in discussion on the internet, or real life conversation. Person A makes Statement X, and Person B goes on a rant about how ridiculous Statement X is, only for Person...
So a recent post here has reminded me of one of my great loves, and inspired me to write an [admittedly pointless] blog about it. What is this mystery conqueror of my affections? Lists. Yep. I love lists. Making them, reading them, having them presented to me in visual and/or animated format...
I think truly growing up looks different for everyone. Your childish may be my adultish, or vice versa. I don’t mean physically growing up, but rather the sense pertaining to maturity. And what is mature for you and I will differ depending on where it is we want to go in life. Recently I decided...
Today Google chose to honor the late Yuri Kochiyama on what would have been her 95th birthday. I must admit, though I am a student of history, I knew very little of her (which I will choose to blame on my disinterest in modern history as a whole). My knowledge could basically be summed up as...
Today I met someone who believes it is impossible for a theist to accept theism as true based on logic. No, I do not mean he simply found any arguments for theism unconvincing. That would have been just fine by me. He quite literally believed that there are zero arguments--even bad ones--used by...
St-t-tutter through sinking fields of butterflies. “May I have this dance?”
Amidst peach blossoms In the land of living jade Purpose found at last
Cherry blossom breeze, wand’ring guqin, bamboo trills, steeping in my tea
A broken record, "Okay, okay, I'm okay." Pretty as a swan.
I've decided to try to write a haiku a day because it seems to be the cool thing to do. Plus, it's a not-too-difficult way to feel like I have achieved something. I'll probably be taking the term "haiku" very broadly. What of it? Day 1: Fours years in limbo for a fruitful later life. All...
Time for some impromptu cathartic release of !!!EMOOOOOOTIOOOOOOONS!!! because if I don't get this out of me I'll never be able to study. So it's exam week at my university, and it's all finally hitting me. No, not the studying and all-nighters and other academic stuff. I'm perfectly okay with...
First the minor rant: I need to voice some frustrations about a particular aspect of our society. Luckily, none of the people I have encountered on this site fit into the type that I'm raging against (many, I would wager, are actually on the opposite end of the spectrum, and I am all for that)...
I'm not sure this post is going to be all that exciting or meaningful or substantial. I'm just letting some thoughts flow. I seriously am totally lost as to where I am headed in the future in terms of career. I have so many interests and careers that I would like to pursue, but I can't choose...
Every once in a while, in a coffee shop or a library or wherever I may find myself passing the time as a passive observer of the world of humanity, I see that one individual. That one person who inexplicably outshines everyone and everything around her. She doesn’t beg for attention, nor even...
Closing the door behind me, I maneuver through the mess of shoes cluttering the entryway. I manage to find a space to put my own and start down the short hallway, nearly rolling my ankle on a stray slipper. The sound of laughter and excited chatter grows louder, and as I turn the corner I am met...
So, I have these things I wrote simply for the sake of catharsis. I'm not putting them in the prose boards because 1) I'm not really interested in having them critiqued, and 2) I wouldn't actually expect anyone to suffer through them. The first I did post on a thread somewhere, but I'll put it...
