Well I finished the Potter book. My love for Harry Potter has never been a silent love but something that i have loved for a long time (see previous post). But i continually realize that life is a process. This is not a spoiler I promise you but I realize that love and friendship are all so important. Love is something that brings you closer to not only to your identity but to the identities of others.
I am tired. I am in a class that his way bigger than my current understanding. In some ways it is about understanding. It is towards understanding a text and how that makes meaning or value. Understanding our traditions and prejudices through this new understanding. In seeing this I have now realized how much I don't know about living. How much I have left to learn. What I bring is broken. i am not perfect and in this quest will never be perfect. That quest is silly, pushing in the wrong direction.
There are things in my life I am meant to do. Philosophy is not one of them. But getting to understand this will come one of these days. It is humbling to get a large swift kick to the ego.
This book is not like Harry Potter. In the day and a half that I read Harry it takes me hours to get through a couple of pages. This is not east nor fun reading. It is about interpreting the text. It seems overwhelming at time but there are moments where it makes sense. Just a few more days and it will be over. I know I am gaining knowledge but it hasn't clicked yet!
I burned myself with coffee today. It was all worth it for the comment that was made by Josh Martinez. I hate light coffee it is to acidic. The acidity is gross and it hurts my stomach and i told Josh that it tasted like ass. His response was priceless and made me laugh really hard...."ass is acidic, huh?".....or something like that!!
I am tired.
I am overwhelmed.
My thoughts have been pretty muddied lately. I will have a better post when this class is over and i am actively involved in life again....
