Philosophically Speaking

So I can't keep up with posting art every day, even if I go to putting old stuff up (which I think I will do because I do have a backlog that I never properly shared) and whatnot, but I *do* think it is such a good idea to keep up daily, or at least mostly-daily.  It's good for me and I love to be in contact with people in a way that I cannot otherwise be.

So, I'm going to turn to my other interests to share a bit.  Because, why not, and there are thoughts and ideas I would like to hash out just for my own sake.  And since this is my own blog, I can do whatever I want and you can feel free to ignore me.  :)

One of my interests is philosophy in general, and specific types in particular.  If (ahem, when?) I go back to school, this is what I would like to major in.  Until then, there is much I can gather and ponder on.  I get a little obsessed with my Japanese studies, so being able to semi-publicly share thoughts and ideas might be quite motivating to me.

I will ramble too much and maybe, but hopefully not, I might make someone uncomfortable or even offended.  But these are just my ramblings, so feel free to take them as you will.  I can't stop you anyway.  :p  There are things I obsess about, things I like to think about, and things I do have strong opinions over.  And sometimes I think people are just, well, dumb.  That extends to everyone, and I exclude not myself.

For a while now, I have chosen to limit my online presence, compared to what I used to do.  This is a good idea in many ways...there are lots of weirdos and I just get tired of being misunderstood so often.  I don't intend to go back to all of my old practices, but I do miss sharing with some people and since I get locked into kid interaction so much, and since I do have things I'd like to share in a limited way, and I do like to hear some opinions balanced with my own, this is perhaps the best format for it.

Oh I'm so glad you will be blogging more! It really is a wonderful way to track your daily life and just stay in touch with yourself. I love when people visit my blog, but it really is for me- my little tiny corner of the internet. I love to read your thoughts. You could do what I do...I have a post every day but I don't really blog every day. Sometimes I get inspired and I knock out 5 posts in a single day- and I schedule them in advance. Right now I'm scheduled up through next Wednesday! So don't feel like you have to come up with something every day because you don't. :)

Also just more thinking and things... it is rather wonderful to have a place that you claim as yours where you can speak your mind...and sometimes sort things out. I have also posted things that some might see as offensive but that's their problem not mine. Neither you nor I are ever coming from a place of ignorance and hate- and that is exactly why whatever we say should be respected. I look forward to reading you speak your brilliant mind. Maybe some of the brilliance will rub off on me, I sure need it.

A horse walks into a bar. The bartender asks the horse if it's an alcoholic considering all the bars he frequents, to which the horse replies "I don't think I am." POOF! The horse disappears.
This is the point in time when all the philosophy students in the audience begin to giggle, as they are familiar with the philosophical proposition of Cogito ergo sum, or I think, therefore, I am.
But to explain the concept aforehand would be putting Descartes before the horse.
