How It Used to Be

We all have (or did have) that one friend that we’re close to. We talk to that person almost everyday about weird things, things that maybe other people won’t understand, which makes it special. And then suddenly, things change. People experience new things, meet new people, and “change.” I don’t really think people really “change.” I believe that they still have the same views as before, and think the same things as before. I believe that, they just changed how they act. I remember a Facebook status a few years ago stating “People change, get over it.” Yeah, yeah, we were still in middle school. Or an ask.fm anon saying “Wow, you’ve changed” and the person replying with, “Yeah, people change.” See, they DO know that they’ve changed. They’ve just decided to change how they are towards people. You know you can’t do anything about it. If that’s the way are, that’s the way they will be. WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS, AND THAT…

Life goes on, and maybe someday other situations will be worse to deal with. We’ll all go our separate ways, and things will carry on from there.

Life is as funny as it gets.

As I was being a creeper and reading a really long love/friendship confession post to a person on Facebook (yes I realize this sounds really bad and weird), I realized some pretty deep stuff.

I would like to say the person who posted this long confession is a friend of mine, who I see occasionally.  She was super nice in middle school and didn’t have any boyfriends or anything like that. She got along with all my friends, and we’d all be goofy together. I realize that times have changed and people are starting to try and experiment with new things. Honestly, I’m a little jealous of how she allows herself to experience new things in her life, and she’s not afraid to do that. At the same time, I admire her for how she IS changing and trying new things, because that must be one of the scariest things to do in life.

What is a Relationship Without a Little Bit of Loyalty?

Hello viewers! The Oedipus Plays has some interesting content that I would like to talk about every so often, and I hope you find it equally interesting as well 🙂

“Loyalty means nothing unless it has at its heart the absolute principle of self-sacrifice.” -Woodrow Wilson

In class, I have learned that Antigone is the daughter of Oedipus Rex and Jocasta, who would also be the sister of Oedipus because he is the son of Jocasta as well. Despite the weird family connection, she sticks by her old blind father and takes care of him. She helps lead him in exile. She never leaves her father’s side. In this way, she is loyal to him.
