    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...

    one of the only plays Ive studied repeatedly and never gotten bored of. I was also in a production of it as Ophelia, which, excuse my french, is a ******* awesome part to play, second only to Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?   I love the character of Hamlet, and...

    I Was Obsessed With Hamlet.

    ~~~~~~~~~~ I went through a phase of being obsessed with the play "Hamlet", for several months. Often, I was reading the script in the daytime, watching DVDs of it in the evening, and dreaming about it at night. It effected me very deeply, as it seems to say so much about...

    To Be...

    I am very passionate about this play.  I studied it and it was the first play I seen performed at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.  There is such beauty in the language and there is also so many phrases we now use as considered advice. Do not, as some ungracious pastors...

    Consumed By Hamlet...

    I'm definitely not afraid if being unloved. I just know that the being actually truly loved will never ever happen. I'd rather be alone than not really loved.

    The guy I (think I maybe) love, said he loved me. But I'm not sure if he meant it as 1) a joke 2) as a friend 3) maybe he's fallen for me like I have for him.
