Long overdue post exam post. That sounds catchy no, post exam post? No? ah well. attempts at humour tend to dry up when you've just gone through a few days of intense brain work i suppose.
No peace for me after that though. Headed directly into working on my degree assignments. Woe is me. What i can't stand is people letting their emotions get in the way of work man! I mean you've got relationships for these things. And if you've got a relationship thats getting harder to go through there's no reason to take it out on innocent bystanders who are not going to hit you back.
Just cos you're tolerant enough is no reason to keep taking shit. And then you dont go and judge the person who refused to take shit for not being willing to take it and call them religious elitists and be all judgementally prudish on them. Anyone who does that, and i am not saying anyone does, has double standards and is potentially qualified to recieve a KKK honorary membership.
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others - Orwell, yes yes i got an accelerated dose of Animal Farm last night. Brilliant piece of work. Read it through in a matter of hours. I know im kinda late to start reading Orwell, him being the revolutionary he is (or was) and all but hey, better late than never. My next target is 1984 since i've heard so much about it.
Finished another one called Catch 22. Now thats a definite read for anyone man. Based in World War 2 Italy. Funny as hell and extremely insightul. You've got a hero called Yossarian who's goal is to stay as far away from actual heroics as he possibly can, you've got Nately, Nately's whore, Nately's whore's kid sister, Hungry Joe (who sleeps with Dobbs' cat on his face and screams in his sleep all night long), Yossarian's room mate Orr, his obsession with very small mechanical parts and a host of other crazy out-of-this-world shit that makes some wierd kinda sense when put together.
Other reads lately include Stephen Hawkwing's Theory of Everything which i'm just digging into and Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea which i've not touched yet.
Got heaps more lying around.
