Trigger-warning that I’m going to receive at some point, from many different people.

Two Different Responses to Love

Originally posted on Devin Stevens Presents Literature:
Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables (can’t do the accent, sorry) was published in 1862. The title is French for “The Miserable Ones.” It stands, alongside his earlier work, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, as the crowning achievement of his literary career. It tells the story of Jean Valjean, a…

I would put myself in a different boat, although in the same vein, as Devin Stevens

Here’s his quote: “I’m constantly entranced with wonder, deep and heavy matters, imagination, and questions. I know now that that is why I am who I am, with all my inner sweetness and bitterness. My mind has always wandered. That is why stories are so precious to me; they represent the longing to transcend the simple, […]

The goal in my intellectual life. (I consider myself to be many different things. First and foremost, I want to be a student of objective truths. Next, I want to be an entertainer and someone that relaxes people. These are my two biggest driving forces in my life).

My goal in life is to have some type of theory about as many phenomena in life as I can conceive of, and my hope is that some of these things have value much as the theory of relativity did, or something of that nature. My goal is to be remembered as someone that brought […]

A Short Message on the Idiocy of the Concept of “Overthinking” Based on Different Definitions of the Word that I Think Are Correct Based on Experience and Reason. How Do I Know if I’m Right or Not? That is the EXACT point of this piece. So take heed of it completely, if you can.

What Kind of Love is Philosophy? How is it Different from Other Kinds of Love?

Just wrote this paper for my philosophy class in maybe 30 minutes (maybe a little more). Maybe it’s good, maybe it’s shit. I really don’t know. I think it’s good, but I think that it also may be a pile of shit. Here was the prompt: “Philosophy literally means the love of wisdom. What kind of love […]

Personal Examination of Experimental Repetition

I once had a blog. I guess it was near 10 year ago, now. Would’ve made me 15, 16 years old. Yikes. Glad it’s not still around (although a part of me wishes I could still see what I wrote, and only me). But I’ve always been a scatterbrained little boy, for a multitude of reasons. […]

Review of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby”

My decision to re-read books of my past, and review them, continues with “The Great Gatsby”. “The Great Gatbsy” is one of those books that seems to be an assigned reading multiple times throughout one’s “formal” education. The first time I recall being assigned to read this was in 11th grade. And the second time […]
