    One of My Favorite Works of Art

    If not my absolute favorite. I couldn't tell you how many times I've read it, and although I already know what happens, it's a comfort to read those beautiful, familiar words. There is so much depth in the story, and as per usual of Shakespeare, so many layers to it...

    To Be...

    Hamlet Relocates Reality...

    What does it feel like to be romantically loved by someone? In all of my 30 years here on earth, I've never been loved. Now how pathetic is that?
