Sometimes I just wanna read for enjoyment and not analyze the shit out of a story/novel.

But english major.

Reasons why I try to read on my own as much as I can. Even if I’m still analyzing the shit out of a novel because I can’t help myself, I’m not analyzing the shit out of a novel for a grade

So much truth in one statement. Agreed. I would much rather analyze for fun than for a prof’s approval. However, I have had some interesting in class discussions with a prof based on different ways of analyzing a text…

I completely agree. Class discussions are great, and I actually like writing essays and hearing my professor’s views of different texts. It’s just nice, sometimes, to not have the fear of a grade or evaluation looming over me as I’m reading, you know?

As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a God. I don’t think there is a God, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a God. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different God, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are.

Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.
