Love me or hate me, both are in my favour… If you love me, I’ll always be in your heart … If you hate me, I’ll always be in your mind.

Normalise liking poetry because you like the way it sounds and art because you think its beautiful. You don’t have to understand the deeper meaning of something to appreciate it - poetry is bloody difficult to analyse and art requires an extensive knowledge of movements and artists to properly get - so please just wonder around art galleries and decide which pieces you’d buy if you could, and read out lines of poetry simply because they have a nice ring to them.

Tom Hiddleston is retiring from acting and he came to my university to lecture about Shakespeare. I jumped out of my window (I live on the fifth floor) to run to university to catch his lecture. There were zombies on the way so I Ramboed my way through them. I arrived to uni just as Tom revealed himself to be Loki and that he was also Shakespeare's real life muse.

"Her clothes spread wide;
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up:
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes;
As one incapable of her own distress,
Or like a creature native and indued
Unto that element: but long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,
Pull'd the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death.”
William Shakespeare

the problem with hamlet is he’s always played by a 35 year old dude and im like. in the first place why are you not already the king, get it together. and when a 35 year old makes fun of people he’s just a dick. he’s not funny he’s just annoying. like shut the fuck up and just kill your uncle like a goddamn grown up.
but 15 year old hamlet? when a 15 year old is being snarky and annoying? thats just how teenagers are. a 15 year old panicking about commiting actual murder? okay, yeah, you’re allowed to panic about this for a while. fair enough. 15 year old hamlet is actually a tragedy rather than the saga of a mid-life crisis.
nobody under thirty has played hamlet in a major film adaptation according to wikipedia and its a goddamn travesty.
