Breakdown

I blog about books, and I love books. Otherwise, I wouldn’t blog about them.

I’ve been reading, and I have ideas for posts.

But I’m breaking down and can’t do anything, so please bear with me as I try not to die.

Fault In Our Stars

“Sure, anyone can name fourteen dead people. But we’re disorganized mourners, so a lot of people end up remembering Shakespeare ends up remembering the guy he wrote the Sonnet  55 about.”

My Stupid_Assed Phone

A while ago mine recommended PKD’s Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep. I liked it enough, but wasn’t RTUs I as tic enough to pick up another til now.  Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said is starting slow, with back story clogging it up. I like the premise, a famous man loses his identity, but the sci-fi world seems like extra stuff that’s not relevant. And I do love SciFi.

No picture today, as I am using a phone because mi library blocked computer access and my mum got rid of internet at home. I’ll try to use a cumbepter at a school in the following weeks of break

Happy Star Wars!

Check Out My New Blog/ The Truth is, It’s My Phone

 

I started a new blog for a journalism class! I will be, or should be, covering how humans suffer the consequences of environmental damage in Humboldt County. It is Nature’s Backlash: Earth Will Rage, Men Will Bleed There will be interviews with humans. I will have to talk to humans for a blog. In person.

 I do want to be a journalist, and it’ll be nice to be able to ask questions without having to go through social things, but at the same time, HUMANS. They’re not nice.

In book news, I’m still reading LOTR off and on. The only book i’m reading regularly is required reading for my Dramatic Writing class. (I LOVE my Dramatic Writing class)Naked Playwriting is ok. I would read it on my own, but i’d skip chapters tho and three because YADDAYADDYADDAYOUKNOWTHISANDYOUKNOWTHATYYADDAYADDAYADDYADDA. But some of it is interesting, like short histories of theatre genres and some funny analogies. I recommend it if you have an interest in writing and/or theatre. 

Yes, I have classes and sleep deprivation, but the real thing that is keeping from writing is my phone. I can feel them competing for me. Aragorn vs MyCafe. I can either own a cafe with limited interaction or be immersed in a world alongside a sexy ranger. Logically, I know the right choice is to be with Aragorn, but that phone is bloody hypnotizing. 

 When you look at my other blog, please leave comments on how to improve. I am being graded on it! How do you deprive your phone of your eyes? HOW?

FOOD

I’m hungry. I’m also sick as f*, but let’s stick with hunger for this post. 

When I first visited my college, I looked for vegan options in the Depot and found The Rice Bowl, which, obviously, serves rice, but also veggies and tofu. I got the trio, and asked the tour guide if it were easy to be vegan here. She said yes, and there was a good vegan rating from peta2, so I came here.

And lost 7 pounds in 3 weeks, without meaning to. Sometimes the food was good, filling and healthy, but after the first two weeks, the food took a sharp decline. They never serve vegan breakfast except on mondays, when they quickly run out. For the last two days, they’ve had veggies and soup so spicy it chokes. 

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION SO I CAN BE HEALTHY AGAIN!!!!!!!

 FIRMA LA PETICIÓN, POR FAVOR!!!!!!

HSU: Feed Your Vegan Students!

With that outta the way, (you DID sign it, right?)….I sick so I sleep.

Thank you.

Muchos gracias.

Goodreads Monday:Dupin

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners . To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. 

So I found this weekly meme some weeks ago and decided to participate. 

The Murders In Rue Morgue

images (10)

Edited and with an Introduction by Matthew Pearl
Includes “The Murders in the Rue Morgue,” “The Mystery of Marie Rogêt,” and “The Purloined Letter”
 
Between 1841 and 1844, Edgar Allan Poe invented the genre of detective fiction with three mesmerizing stories of a young French eccentric named C. Auguste Dupin. Introducing to literature the concept of applying reason to solving crime, these tales brought Poe fame and fortune. Years later, Dorothy Sayers would describe “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” as “almost a complete manual of detective theory and practice.” Indeed, Poe’s short mysteries inspired the creation of countless literary sleuths, among them Sherlock Holmes. Today, the unique Dupin stories still stand out as utterly engrossing page-turners.

 I’ve been wanting to read this for a while, as it inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. I got it from the library and it’s been sitting atop my TBR pile, waiting for me to finish Sherlock and Game Of Thrones. I’ll start it this week!
