Shakespeare, Shakespeare everywhere! I dunno if the prevalence of Shakespeare references around me are just more noticeable since I watched "As You Like It", but I don't think I really noticed any references until I settled on a quote to use in a Shuttle!Verse chapter. Whatever it was, there are now Shakespeare references everywhere and I am loving it. I keep getting all starry-eyed.

Being on a literary kick, let me share with you more of my geeky-ness.

First something from one my lit class notes. (I don't remember what class, how sad).

A Victorian Daily Schedule )


Next lookie what I bought!
Graphic Novels )

Along that same vein, and because I feel like I've bored you too often, have a meme.


Produce a list of 100 female characters you think are awesome, love, etc.
1 through 100 here )

Books and bookish things are in italics. Please feel free to ask me about any of them. Why I chose them, who I didn't choose someone else, etc.

Recent conversations have led me to thinking about religious studies. Now don’t worry I’m not about to get all religious on you. I’m talking about classes I took for my English degree. I cheated some in the “taking classes” area. If you were in the honors program some of the classes you took from that department counted as other requirements. This was AMAZING. Nothing quite like being required to take an agricultural class (like the uses for natural gases) and instead being able to take “Thomas Jefferson: The man, the legend” instead. (One of the AG professors was in love with T.J. and as such offered a fantastic class on him. He would give out prizes in class. Wine, cider, books, specialty mugs. But I digress.)

 

Professors can be awesome and they can also be insane )

 

Blah, all this reminiscing has me thinking about other fun classes. Or other class moments. (Because as much a pain in the butt those two classes were with the Evil professor, the man was funny, and as we put on his evaluation “he knows everything about everything.”) I may do further reminiscing in the future. “Vampires as Literature” “The Origin of the Child” (GOD that was an amazing class too! Loved discussing how children became “innocent” in literature.) “American Literature II” (Typee discussions!), My Shakespeare classes (It’s all fruit!- Inside joke I can explain). “Children’s Literature”, “Modern Literature” (Shit class, the professor was also a crazy person. Literally everyone failed and the curve was insane.) I'll probably talk about us categorizing our professors as mythical creature. (We had a mummy, troll, faerie, werewolf, and so on.)

 

I think I’ll also see if I can find any of my old work from my Creative Writing classes.

I feel so good. No really, like I can accomplish something again. I hope this feeling lasts for a long time, especially since I haven't felt this way in forever. I'm also in a weird mood, as such have a crazy video:




I can't tell you how I adore this song. Or how freaking HOT I find it. It kind of scares me. But is also inspires me, cause damn, if Jim did something so ridiculous like this and yet pulled it off but rocking it like that....seriously Bones would combust. Which yeeesssssss....

So I've got Jim and Bones thang on. Lookies!


Goblins and Fire and Dragons! )


or even



Jim and Joanna and Bones! )


*flails*


PS: The video quality is shite, but the sound is good; there is another video where the quality is good, but the sound is super quiet. I'd recommend mixing and matching them if it bugs you.
