"at the twelvemonth's end I'll change my black gown for a faithful friend" WHAT what the FUCK kind of vibes was shakespeare feeling the day he wrote that. my god. the yearning. the fondness. the already mourning someone and they haven't even let go of your hand yet. the tenuous promise of a future day when you'll hold their hand again, in a time with more light and color than the one you're in right now. who wants to be my faithful friend when this pandemic is over? fuck I love this play.

I never understand why "I don't read classics, only YA" is like "Lol same" and when I say the opposite, I become snobby all of a sudden.

i decided to go a fun little thing where i compile an interesting set of phrases/anecdotes i found while reading the encyclopedia of words and phrase origins. so for today we havee
1. seven stages of drunkenness , which could also pass as the seven moods a human is capable of being in. "which stage of drunkenness are you in today?" is something you could casually slip into your conversations completely sober
Tumblr media
2. this fun little piece consisting of mostly words shakespeare coined. i cant believe he coined rival.
Tumblr media
3. this is mostly maybe due to me not being a comic fan but the word shazam is composed of initials of mythological figures or rather, the traits they carry. what.
Tumblr media
4. and finally an anecdote on balzac that demonstrates a rare case of what pussy actually does to a motherfucker

What’s curious is that, if you were looking for a drama that distils the emotions so many of us have been through in the past year, it would be hard to find a better candidate than The Winter’s Tale. One of the last plays Shakespeare wrote, completed not long before The Tempest, it ripples with the mystical, intensely powerful themes that fill his late work. Hermione is pregnant when her husband, Leontes, tells her he believes the child is someone else’s; she is forced to separate from her daughter and go into isolation. Grief and sudden death loom large. Only via an unexpected reversal of fate is tragedy averted.

"Ser o no ser" esa es la cuestión existencial.
Tumblr media
"Ser o no ser, esa es la cuestión" (William Shakespeare). Ésta frase célebre pertenece a su obra Hamlet y es tan compleja entenderla que cada vez que la oímos la asociamos con nuestra existencia y nos preguntamos cuál es nuestro fin en este mundo.
Si hablamos de ello, muchas veces me pregunté esto, incluso lo sigo haciendo. ¿Cuál es mi propósito en este mundo? ¿Cual es mi misión? ¿Por qué me afecta? Y muchas preguntas más que rondan mi mente, sobretodo cuando sufro por situaciones en las que me veo atrapada y no logro encontrar la solución, me estreso fácilmente, me cuestiono la vida.
Hablando de mi situación actual...me encuentro tan sola y no puedo compartir mis sentimientos con nadie es que no quiero que se preocupen por mi. Sé que yo sola me metí en en este camino, me expuse a una situación de incertidumbre. Suele dolerme el amor talvez por mi inseguridad porque la mayor parte de las veces sufrí el abandono y la mentira, reconozco que me cuesta confiar en los demás. También juega un papel fundamental que es la soledad, si bien soy una persona bastante solitaria, realmente esto de andar viajando, teniendo un estilo de vida nomade, reafirma el concepto de estar literalmente sola, no cuento con nadie cercano, extraño compartir momentos de diversión, risas y anécdotas, realmente es triste andar sola. Se siente como nadar en un mar de dudas y sensaciones de adaptación, lo que conlleva a la falta de determinacion para cumplir ciertos objetivos, esa negatividad de no poder cumplir mis metas, también por momentos me despierto y pienso... hace falta un cambio y ahí de nuevo el sentimiento de inseguridad aparece, cuestionandome y creándome una resistencia al cambio, aunque sepa que es necesario. Esto es lo que muchas veces me lleva a tener un estado de ánimo tan bajo, que parece un círculo vicioso del cual me cuesta salir. Se que no soy la única que le afecta atravesar ese estado, con mis amigas hablamos del tema, no tan en profundidad, y se puede entrever esa preocupación que es universal y tan compleja, siento que hace bien hablar el tema y entender en profundidad las sensaciones que nos provoca está incertidumbre existencial, nos consuela saber que estamos de paso, que la vida es una, y que estamos en modo presente, que los problemas tienen solución y que la mejor forma es levantarnos cada mañana con un pensamiento optimista y positivo. Cuesta por supuesto, pero creo que el fin de nuestra existencia en este mundo es luchar contra las adversidades, ser fuertes, independientes, constantes, y romper los miedos, animarnos a cambiar, porque como dicen... todos los cambios son para bien aunque nos cueste el proceso una vez logrados nos sentimos plenos, y esa sensación de haber superado los obstáculos es tan gratificante que nos alivia el alma y se desvanece ese estado emocional, nos hace invencible saber que nuestra mente es tan potente y que el mundo lo creamos con nuestros pensamientos y para vivir en un mundo feliz, en paz y en armonía hace falta eso, resetearnos constantemente y tener pensamientos positivos, agradecer a la vida por darnos la oportunidad de avanzar y crecer para ser mejores personas. De a poco un día a la vez.
Y vos...alguna vez pasaste por un sentimiento así? Que te genera? Sentís que podés cambiarlos?
"To be or not to be, that is the question" (William Shakespeare). This famous phrase belongs to the work of his Hamlet of his and it is so complex to understand it that every time we hear it we associate it with our existence and we ask ourselves what is our end in this world.
If we talk about it, many times I asked myself this, even I still do. What is my purpose in this world? What is my mission? Why does it affect me? And many more questions that haunt my mind, especially when I suffer from situations in which I am trapped and cannot find the solution, I get stressed easily, I question life.
Speaking of my current situation ... I am so lonely and I can't share my feelings with anyone, it's because I don't want them to worry about me. I know that I got myself into this way, I exposed myself to a situation of uncertainty. Love usually hurts, perhaps because of my insecurity because most of the time I suffered abandonment and lies, I recognize that it is difficult for me to trust others. Solitude also plays a fundamental role, although I am quite a lonely person, really this traveling, having a nomadic lifestyle, reaffirms the concept of being literally alone, I do not have anyone close, I miss sharing moments of fun , laughs and anecdotes, it really is sad to walk alone. It feels like swimming in a sea of ​​doubts and feelings of adaptation, which leads to a lack of determination to meet certain goals, that negativity of not being able to meet my goals, also at times I wake up and think ... a change is needed and there again the feeling of insecurity appears, questioning me and creating a resistance to change, even though I know it is necessary. This is what often leads me to have such a low mood that it seems like a vicious circle from which I find it difficult to get out. I know that I am not the only one who is affected by going through that state, with my friends we talked about the subject, not so in depth, and you can glimpse that concern that is universal and so complex, I feel that it is good to talk about the subject and understand in depth the feelings that this existential uncertainty causes us, it comforts us to know that we are passing through, that life is one, and that we are in the present mode, that problems have a solution and that the best way is to wake up each morning with an optimistic and positive thought. It costs of course, but I believe that the purpose of our existence in this world is to fight against adversity, to be strong, independent, constant, and to break our fears, to encourage ourselves to change, because as they say ... all changes are for the better although the process costs us once achieved we feel complete, and that feeling of having overcome obstacles is so gratifying that it relieves our soul and that emotional state fades, it makes us invincible to know that our mind is so powerful and that the world we create it With our thoughts and to live in a happy world, in peace and harmony, that is necessary, constantly resetting ourselves and having positive thoughts, thanking life for giving us the opportunity to move forward and grow to be better people. Little by little one day at a time.
And you ... did you ever go through a feeling like this? What generates you? Do you feel that you can change them?
