Someone recently told me I haven’t been blogging, so hello. Here I am, right where ya left me. Not much to update you on though. Except I found a tiny bakery with the best iced coffee and cookies. I finally got accepted to Trinity. So I’ll be in Dublin in a few months which is crazy cool. I also get to go with two of my best friends which calls for a daily celebration. I’ve heard that Dublin is a terrible place for vegetarians so if you’ve been and have any recommendations that would be dandy. I guess that is all.
Essentially, we’ve created a concept where being like Hercules is the ideal. What we forget about the myth is that Hercules killed his wife and children.My roommate (via nocleverurl) just keep breathing

Oddly enough, working for a newspaper provides almost no time to actually read the newspaper. I know the news - so-and-so died, some building will be constructed on a certain street corner, this new restaurant opened - but I hardly know them in-depth and that doesn’t even leave room for news on art and science and technology.
I found a copy of Tuesday’s New York Times at Caffe Strada when I was studying there two days ago. Someone had taken the front page and the news sections, but discarded the business section. I took it home and (terribly enough) the Arts section was tucked in there - bright and new and sadly unread.
Timeliness is everything in the world of media but with Arts it doesn’t matter. And that’s why two days later I can enjoy an article on experiencing the summer solstice at Stonehenge, or about the latest Margaret Atwood novel.
If I don’t go into Arts writing professionally I really will not know what to do with myself.

If you’ve ever loved a book and then you reread it a few years later and it doesn’t mean anything to you—or vice versa, you didn’t like a book and for some reason you open it again and you find it fascinating—it’s just proof that literature is a breathing creature and so are you.Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler) beautiful incongruence
