Had been planning to write my final paper on Hamlet, specifically about graphic novel representations of Hamlet, and what choices in staging and language they make.
Am now thinking, for the sake of time, of ditching the graphic novels and constructing an argument about Hamlet not mad but just depressed. (Some might say he’s bipolar, but based on my own experiences, which of course I can’t cite, depressed people can be pretty good at putting on an act of ‘everything is happy and fine’ and Hamlet does let us know that he’s doing a lot of acting here.) Unless my search terms are off, surprisingly few sources out there that combine Hamlet and depression, so I’ll have to find separate sources about the two.
I wish I knew of a general resource out there that talked about how to analyze literature from clinical psychological perspectives. (As it stands, it’s hard enough to find resources with tips on how to analyze literature from a Freudian/psychoanalytic perspective, which is a pretty common thing that’s done in literary analyses.)
Oh my god, I just overheard him referring to a “quasi-girlfriend,” and for a moment, I thought he was talking about me. Other context suggests he wasn’t, fortunately. (And to his sort-of credit, “quasi-girlfriend”/”quasi-boyfriend” is probably the best way to refer to what went on between us that month first semester of freshman year.)
Just please leave my floor, dude.
Creepy guys left a while back (or they’re hiding), but now my stupid ex-boyfriend person is here loudly speaking Spanish with some girlfriend person of his. Gross.
So there’s two guys on “my” floor in the library, I’ve never seen them before, I don’t know if they even go here, and they’re kind of sketchy looking and they just pulled some Guinness Books of World Records off the shelf.
Please go away, strange people. Your presence is kind of creeping me out.
Today one of my friends left in the middle of his creative writing class to use the bathroom and decided to go back to his house to take a shower and then went back to his class after 15 minutes.
Just when I thought my friends couldn’t troll any harder…
