Somewhere out there must be a game/story where Electra and Sir Gaheris make sweet 'complex' music together. And talk about how it felt to kill their moms.

Because it popped into my head at random and I'm not touching it.

I am:


Writing an essay about how Helen and Andromache fit into the 'heroic code' of Homer's Iliad.

Mildly missing my greeks.

Thiiis close to writing a 7forhellas post.

Trying to have a social life.

Failing at all these things.

I think I am ready for college.

It is a disturbing thought.


Pick a character and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

Blah Blah Blah.
My cousin and I drove around in the hopes of finding the one open store on Christmas morning. She wanted spinach. Everything was so creepy and empty; the Kroger parking lot that usually seemed to gorge itself on life was entirely desolate. We didn't pass any cars on the way there. As for the store itself the employees had barricaded the doors with booze. Nobody was getting in there.

I told my cousin, because sometimes I forget that the world is not the internet, that Kroger would be a good hiding place during a zombie apocalypse. Lock and barricade the doors and eat all the perishables first. The glass might be an issue but with proper planning you could compensate for that.

My cousin reacted to this the way any sorority girl might. She took me to what turned out to be a very busy Starbucks and we drank caramel lattes until the paranoia went away.

I'll call this holiday a success.

Late Memes are the New Black

Um, my life has been hectic and boring. I punched a clown. I was the lead in the school play. I saw the new Harry Potter movie. 

...And billion years of not checking my personal journal means missing all the cool memes. 


Give me a character and I will tell you:

(a) three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon
(b) a reason he/she sucks
(c) a reason he/she is amazing
(d) five things that I’d like to see happen to them
(e) five people that I ship that character with and why.

I'm like this irl too.

So it turns out my understanding of the Iliad isn't as amazing as I thought it was? I read it for fun on my own time but now that I'm doing it in class-

I rock the little details. It's just every so often the super special symbolism sneak attacks me. Like the shield.

My mythology teacher had us draw the ~*SHEILD OF ACHILLES*~. I was like 'whut' but I really got into it. There are so many cities and dancing people and lions all up in this shield. I only had one piece of paper and I was trying to draw tiny constellations and essentially I used up all my meager artistic abilities before I got to the ocean. This thing is hard core is what I'm saying.

Still I felt like I had completed the assignment to the best of my ability. My teacher asked me what exactly the big deal was. Clearly this giant hunk of bronze is a big freaking deal. So I told him what I thought.

Apparently the shield of Achilles is not meant to symbolize the evolution of man. Apparently this is the first time he's ever hear such a strange thing. Drat.

That's a lot of wasted time drawing sheep.

And When I Have Died


My Grandmother turns 80 on Tuesday. To celebrate she got an IPad.

The woman will outlive me.
