tumblr tuesday: goblins & geologies
Hello to you on this vertically oriented igneous Tuesday. Today, we bring you some of the best rock-related content here on Tumblr. Whether you like your stones small and shiny or huge and hurtling through space, here are some good places to go for your lithic fix. Think of this as a small yet charming troll sharing with you their favorite treasures.

the library management students
an instinct for organization
memorizing the dewey decimal system
wandering through the shelves of the library you visited as a child, perusing the familiar titles
the smell of old pages, their edges worn smooth with time
advocating for the preservation of intellectual freedom
knowing where to find every book in your collection
a room filled with books, stacked on every available surface
finding the perfect book to recommend to a friend
understanding the importance of public libraries
fighting to keep knowledge easily available to everyone, regardless of their circumstances
the impossibility of choosing a favorite book from all that you’ve read
being able to list dozens of prominent and lesser-known authors
seeing the library as an invaluable community institution
learning how to repair damaged books
the paper-thin pages of a dictionary, open and displayed on a stand
encouraging curiosity and creativity in everyone
teaching proper research techniques
adapting traditional library systems to keep up with a changing world
a deep love for books and the knowledge they hold
the comfort of a book you’ve read a hundred times
passing along your favorite books to a new generation of children
wanting to preserve libraries, even in the internet age

reviewsium I woke up early this morning watching a 90s movie, took my meds and had a coffee. I lit a candle and I sit down writing down my last impressions on The Well of Loneliness, waiting for picking up Demons. I really enjoyed this fiction, some chapters were unnecessary detailed but I found it very enjoyable and I couldn't put it down, a real page-turner.

the classics students
sculpted white marble, cool and smooth beneath your hands
the striking ruins of ancient greek architecture
seeing the ways that ancient civilizations influence the modern world
a love for stories, ancient tales that have persisted through the eons
memorizing names from greek mythology, whispering the unfamiliar syllables 
using roman numerals to organize your notes
heavy books stacked at your bedside 
statues of people long dead, but still remembered
reading lines from epic poems - the Iliad, Aeneid, Metamorphoses 
finding greek and latin roots in every sentence
studying the influence of the classical era on the european renaissance
the taste of grapes, warmed from the mediterranean sun
a fascination with ancient civilizations
wanting to understand how people lived thousands of years ago
seeing plays performed in the traditional greek style
reciting the greek alphabet
whispered invocations of the greek pantheon and their roman counterparts
latin texts painstakingly translated into your native tongue
analyzing the work of classical philosophers
taking classes in history, archeology, and anthropology
old maps showing the historical bounds of the roman empire
speaking the words of a dead language

I've been sick since Thursday. I don't get sick very often, at most I get a runny nose every year but this has been the second time already. Luckily I tested negative for covid, still it is no less annoying to be sick. There is a small upside towards being sick though, it distracts. My mental health has been oscillating quickly, and when I feel physically as bad as I do mentally it is easy to focus on the physical. Just as while I may loath my inability to do any coursework currently, it is nice to finally get around to watching films that I've wanted to watch for a very long time. Small pleasures we must derive from any situation, I suppose.

I'm currently three weeks into my master’s degree and enjoying being back in person for everything on campus. I am currently taking two core philosophy modules, one politics module and one history module. The work load is a step up with there being more essential readings and longer assignments; all of my essays are due in January but I am hoping to discuss ideas and begin research for them soon so that I am less likely to be struggling for time later.
