A Quick Update...

Hello world!

(Adopting a new catch-phrase henceforth. It's 2018. Don't ask.)

A new year is upon us! And it seems to have renewed my desire to blog again. I'm not going to apologize for my lackluster track record of blogging these past few months because the IB has consumed me whole (and if you don't know what the IB stands for, consider yourself generously bestowed with time, friends and a will to live.)

Here's what I'm catching you up on- life. Well, life as it stands now. Things that tickle my funny bone and music that makes me believe I'm hipster.

So life wise, I'm in my final quarter of my high school experience. The finish line is close, but spirits are dwindling and hanging on by a thread. Utilitarianism is a quandary, and the pursuit of Differential equations seem futile. But other than that life is dandy. I've been accepted to a university in Japan, halfway across the globe from where I am now, in a small town in the southern island of Kyus…

I Love You A Latte... geddit?

It's February.
Valentine's day is coming up or something.

So what is love?

Love is my cheesy explanation of what love is. It is my completely unbiased, third-party observation of what loved-up people do. Which is superficial stuff like a ring, a flower and a pink teddy bear from 1973. It's basically my mum and my dachshund yuki after his trip to get vaccinations (she spoils that dog more than she has ever loved me... but then again what really is love?)

wait till you guys meet my dog. 
Love to me is different though.It's a great pun




It's that exact moment when I look at a person, literally anybody, and we have a mutual taste in dank memes.
 It's me going bowling with a friend 6832 kms away in India- but over a phone and we still laugh about it.
It's my sister talking in her sleep about her love affair with pizza's (it's love because I love the opportunity of having a good laugh about it at breakfast next morning. she's a hoot)
Love for me is hav…

Oedipus WRECKs

Image
Oedipus Rex is a delightful Greek play (to say the least) penned by legendary Greek playwright- Sophocles, which is set over 3 Acts that gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "I love my mommy".
It is a Greek tale that questions all logic and leads one to believe that sometimes, running from point A to get to point B can give birth to 'problem Z' and- should therefore, be never undertaken unless one has a greater and deeper understanding of the world of mathematically being screwed over by the Gods.

Over the course of the past 2-ish weeks my English Lit. class has just delved into the mesmerizing world of incest, road rage, divine retribution (that can not be questioned duh.), amnesia, and blind men who could take you down.

After reading 2 scenes from the play our class figured it would be fun to try and recast new actors to act out the the original play and being the 'Game of Thrones' addict that I am, I decided to cast an all-star cast exclusively from th…

Between The Devil And The Deep Sea

Come Act-2 of "The Crucible", Mr. John Proctor is faced with a dilemma - confessing his infidelity with 17 year-old Abigail to his wife Elizabeth amongst others, or- keeping his secret and risking the execution of his wife Elizabeth to accusations thrown at her by Abigail who believes she's been meddling with the occult.

I find John's predicament to be an interesting one.

If he were to confess, he would be the black sheep of his town (possibly even face death) but possibly save his wife's life because Abigail's true character would be revealed- a conniving, selfish girl who wanted him all to herself and wanted Elizabeth out of the way. If he kept silence he'd lose his wife, his standing in society (owing to the fact that he's already been under suspicion of being "ungodly" and "non-christian virtues") he'd forever be labelled a man who let his wife dabbel with the occult.

If I was Proctor, I would come clean about my adultery.…
