Midsummer Night’s Dream

Midsummer Night’s Dream

This is why I thought reading Shakespeare would do me some good. If you haven’t read this play, I highly recommend it. First because it’s a comedy, and comedies are just awesome. And second because it’s about love, and magic, and fairies. And who doesn’t love fairies? There are a few different stories happening at the same time in Midsummer Night’s Dream, but the one I would say is the most important is about a…

Richard III

Richard III

This type of text is not for me. Not only I find poetry to be one of the trickiest things a person can be asked to read, but I also find that I can never understand exactly what the author was trying to say. I am very often left with the feeling that I am reading my own version of what – in this case – Shakespeare said. That is why I decided I needed…

Titus Andronicus

Titus Andronicus

So, I’ve decided I needed to become a better person and read Shakespeare. Of course you are going to say: “OMG, such a smart and insightful person has never read Shakespeare?” Well, yeah. And you can stop trying to make me feel ashamed. Where I grew up, reading Shakespeare was not mandatory in high school, and I know that’s the only reason why you have read it. You can stop bragging now. I decided I…

Battle Creek

Battle Creek

  When I don’t feel like thinking too much, television always comes as the easy answer. And before you start telling me that I should never want to stop thinking, that my mind should at all times be active, let me stop you right there. I’m the queen of this same speech when talking to my husband. The flaw with this argument is as follows: we all have those days. Period. Simple as that. Needing…

Allegory of the Cave

Allegory of the Cave

  Forgive me for having lofty goals. I am fully aware I am not the most well rounded person when it comes to philosophy, as some of you have pointed out when I attempted to give my two cents on Nietzsche. But because I am the most stubborn person you will ever meet, and I never take ‘no’ for an answer, here I am again trying to discuss philosophy. Take that haters of the world….

Julie & Julia

Julie & Julia

  I don’t know why it took me this long to watch Julie & Julia. This movie is so cute, and it hits home in so many different ways that I have no idea how I was able to completely ignore it all this time. My husband and I were starring at a blank TV screen the other day, trying to figure what movie to watch, when I suddenly remembered this gem. Of course, if…

The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray

  I first read this book so long ago that I don’t even remember the circumstances to which it ended up in my hands. I was probably too young to understand its nuances, and that is one of the main reasons why we must re-read the classics at least every 10 years. I wanted to say every 5, but was afraid you would call me out on it, and I would have to admit that…

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

My apologies for not posting yesterday. For some reason my site was down and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. I hate feeling like my hands are tied, and that’s how I was feeling all day yesterday. But again, the way I see it, unless you have very serious issues and you enjoy some S&M shit, no one likes being held down, am I right? And to make my attempts on writing…

Better Call Saul

Better Call Saul

  AMC shows are just cool. Enough Said. I shouldn’t have to say anything else to sell you on the idea on giving this show a try. But just in case you are not one of those people who blindly follow the herd, what comes next is for you. I don’t know if you’ve watched Breaking Bad, but Saul Goodman is the crooked lawyer who helps Walter White deal with his drug money. And by…
